Okay, if you go back around a year, you'll remember that Erik used to ask me, at least daily but more often several times a day, if he could be a pumpkin when he grew up. This lasted a really long time, but did fade away after awhile. Now he has a new thing that he tells me everyday, and here it is:
"Mom, you're not stupid, you're smart, and I love you."
Several times a day people. I'm not sure if someone told him I was stupid and he feels the need to counteract this negativity with as much positive reinforcement as possible, or what, but it always gives me the giggles.

So, I have been hugely remiss in posting this summer, so I thought that I would give all you fans out there a huge glut of pictures to calm all those Liz Cravings I'm sure you are experiencing. Your welcome!

This was Beth's surprise birthday dinner.

Renae was having....issues, lol!
The carnage after the meal.
Yes, I WAS there.
Aw, aren't they cute? (and I'd feel remiss if I didn't point out Lydia on the left. She was having a Bad Night.)
And the cute facade falls to the wayside...
Another awwww pic.
These are all the kids left at home. Such lovely, well mannered adults this woman has raised!
Or not!
And a pic with the transplants of the family. At least we can behave, right?!
Nope, we've been tainted!
This is a walk the kids and I went on around our neighborhood.
I feel the need to tell you the truth about this fire hydrant. Erik informed me that this is a very dangerous robot cleverly disguised as a fire hydrant. So be on the look-out people! These are everywhere!!
Vicious attack dog? Or something to stomp on?
Jonni's school playground, the destination of our walk.
Will somebody PLEASE let these poor kids out of jail!!?
