Spider on a Horse

Here are a few of my favorite things over the last few days:

While I'm sitting at the computer in the morning before work, and everyone is asleep. We had a few days nice enough that the windows were open, and I sat drinking my coffee, eating breakfast, and blogging, listening to the girl who runs in our neighborhood. I love the thunk, thunk, thunk of feet on pavement as she rounds our cul de sac.

The other morning, the kids got up, and Simon said, "I was dreaming about a spider on a horse," and Scarlett said, "I was dreaming it was big cupcake day," and Gavin said, "I was dreaming about scurry monster with big googley eyes." Sigh. I love those kids. Incidentally, is it just me, or does spider on a horse sound like a joke? So, a spider on a horse walks into a bar...

More kid stuff - my conversation with Scarlett yesterday, when Simon and Gavin were teasing and laughing at her:
Scarlett: Mommy, why are Bubbies laughing at me?
Me: Because they're dorks.
Scarlett: Like The Seven Dorks?
Me: No, that's The Seven Dwarfs...

Finding not one, but TWO bargains at the thrift store over the weekend: a white mesh tee I scored in the boys' department, and a plaid shirt (brand new, with tags, AND REVERSIBLE) in the mens' department, that I am going to bleach dip. HOLLA!!!

And finally - we bit the bullet and got tickets to go see my sis and her family in Maryland in September. All of us. It'll be our first time taking the Trio of Terror on a plane. Watch out, American Airlines, The Griswolds are back.

Love what your kids come up with. And now I have Heather's voice from RHONY stuck in my head. Holla!

My girl told me last night that a good dream is about cookies, a bad dream is when some one eats all the cookies. Oh and she added that Jesus helps us with our bags when we go to the grocery store. Seriously wondering what goes on in a 4 year olds head ;o)
