True Crime!

So yesterday I was getting ready for work when Miss May decided to explore the fridge. She was in rummaging around when I asked her what she was doing. She quickly (and with great guilt) slammed the fridge door and said "Nothing!"
"It's okay, you can tell me what you were doing in there. I won't be mad," I told her.
So lets back up a moment... the night before Hotstuff called me to tell me that Miss May had gotten into my candy stash. She had only opened the candy but did not eat. (Sort of like Clinton... I never inhaled!) So Hotstuff moved my stash to a secret location... now back to the story...
"Um, mom, you and dad ate your candy last night. AND YOU DID NOT CHECK ON ME IN BED LAST NIGHT!" she said very disgusted with me.
So if you ever return to the scene of the crime be prepared with a rousing change of subject.

The Miracle of Ants Marching

... As mentioned many times, I have set up this blog spot to help myself, family and friends keep intouch with us better. So I have made two post in the last almost three weeks! Sorry. Right now there is really not much new to report to the world. Out lives are much the same: we get up, go our many ways, Miss May has preschool three times a week, we come home, spend a couple hours together go to bed and get up the next morning to start all over again. It reminds me of the song by the Dave Matthews Band "Ants Marching".
He wakes up in the morning
Does his teeth, bite to eat and he's rolling
Never changes a thing.
The week ends the week begins,
...Take these chances,
Place them in a box until a Quieter time,
Lights down you up and die
...No words exchange no time to exchange and
All the little ants are marching
Red and black antennae waving
They all do it the same
They all do it the same way
Yeah, it is alot like ants marching. Same routine and it has become very very easy to fall into that routine. I have been waiting for some incredible to tell all of you to show how wonderful and exciting our lives our. But in truth, there is not a whole lot exciting going on but our lives! Our lives, no matter how routine they are; are a wonderful miracle. Which brings me to my next song!
Days of Miracles and Wonders by Paul Simon (who might I add is a very small man!)
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all
The way we look to a distant constellation
Thats dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And dont cry baby, dont cry
Dont cry
So I hope I have not dissapointed or bored anyone with my crazy lyrics or lack of excitement and funny stories. But in the words of Miss May: "And that's just how it's done!"

Pumpkin Patch

Miss May had her very first field trip today. She and her preschool class went to a local nursery to visit the pumpkin patch. She and her class had a blast.... I was worn out from just watching them run in circles. The local nursery every fall has fall activities, a pumkin patch and a corn maze. The nursery also has a playground and animals: bunnies, birds of various natures and goats. With the rain storm that passed through this weekend it was a little muddy but the kids still had a fun. I also discovered that Miss May is the tallest in her class! As a special treat her teacher got each of the kids a pumpkin to take home.

I really enjoyed President Thomas S. Monson's address in conference on Sunday morning. He spoke about enjoying the precious time that we have with our children. Time does go way to fast.
