You know what? For the most part, the inane aspects of my day can be tweeted about in less than 140 characters, it seems. Think of it as 'I've been sparing you the boring details'. I miss you guys, though. This really was the best format for sharing photos, updates, catching up with friends, etc.
I wish online life were simple again.

I'm not even going to try and fill in what's been happening since my last post. It's not worth it, I promise.
Let's just start off with inane again, shall we?

The universe has decided to replace all the awesome midcentury garage sale finds I've always managed to dig up with KID STUFF lately. Which is nice, of course. And frankly, it's fun to see their faces light up when I drag a bargain home. The don't really do that for teak-handled silverware.

Today I found a sand and water table in spectacular, almost-new condition for $30. It matches the activity cube/slide that I found a few weeks ago for $40 (also pretty much new). I've mostly abandoned plastic toys when I could (at least for The Bee), but this stuff is really sturdy and awesome.

And here are my ridiculously wholesome and all-American suburban children:

So, how are you?

Wow they have grown so much since the last time I saw pictures you posted. And Larkin might be as cute as Lucy. Which I find hard to believe! And t-ball is ridiculously fun. Too bad half our season was rained out.
ohman, those photos!! so cute.

I spotted you at Wegmans a few weeks ago and had to hold back from telling you to post already.
wow. those pictures are so adroable!!
what's your name on twitter?
I showed Adam that picture of L and he did a double take and thought it was Katie at first. I love our little goofball girls. :)
oh my goodness they are so cute.
ive missed your posts too!
Your kids are beautiful, you live in Find Heaven, what's not to love?

Good to hear from you! I'm either unemployed/underemployed, or self-employed, depending on my mood. Mostly? It's all good.
Love the sand and water table! I've been looking for a water table and haven't found anything nearly as nice.
Oh, how they have grown.....
Yay! So happy to see a post from you. I don't really write here anymore but check in often. Your kids continue to be the cutest ever.
I can't believe how big they are! It's crazy to think that I was reading your LJ in the pre-Owen days!
I wish online life were simple again.

Yes, me too. I've been finding it hard to post anything at all, even when I DO have something to talk about!

I've seen these pictures on flickr already, but I have to say again, so cute! I love the sky behind Owen. They are both such perfect pictures!
Your kidlets are beautiful! I miss LJ too- but I'm starting a blog elsewhere to chronicle my life now. I still check around here periodically. Glad you are so so well!
Hey ... don't know if you're getting notices from here or not (since your last post was over two years back) but I name-checked you in my 9/11 post today ... thought I'd let you know:
