I love watching Jack work on his "cWards" (chords)
I love listening to him play Sweet Home Alabama and the Star-Spangled Banner
(over-and-over-and-over again)
I love that Colten likes wearing crazy clothes.
I love that the green sweatshirt with the lightening bolts I found on clearance made his day yesterday. (and that he's wearing it today...and he looks adorable)
I love that Jared was so excited about the video they saw at youth group that he talked about it non-stop for almost an hour. (this video)
I love that Colin is taking off work tomorrow to go on the field trip to the Memphis zoo with me.(and Jack's class)
I loved watching both Bedtime Stories and Slumdog Millionaire this weekend....

I do not love that the teachers have made Colten so nervous about the dumb benchmark tests that I'm now nervous for him.
I do not love that my boys can not brush their teeth in the morning without getting toothpaste all over themselves and the bathroom.
I do not love the bus driver deciding to come 5 minutes early every morning for the past week.
(5mins in the morning = 1 hour in normal time)
I do not love being told I'm "past child bearing age" by my father.
(3 weeks ago...not that I'm fixating on that or anything)
I do not love my obnoxiously long hair.
(I'm with Jack "I wish my hair could be short when I have to wash it and dry and brush it, and then long again when that's done!")
I do not love that I made three pies and rice krispie treats while trying to lose weight?!
(what in the world was i thinking)

Baby don't you cry, gonna make a pie, gonna make a pie with a heart in the middle. Baby don't be blue, gonna make for you, gonna make a pie with a heart in the middle. Gonna make a pie from heaven above, gonna be filled with strawberry love. Baby don't you cry, gonna make a pie, and hold you forever in the middle of my heart.

ooh, love the new blog banner! and I swear, Jack looks like a boy version of my Cami to me -- though my husband doesn't see it at all...Have fun at the Memphis Zoo; we love going. The Northwest Passage exhibit with the Polar Bears is very very cool, and we still enjoy the pandas.
