forgive the blur, my little point & shoot is not doing well.
Mine all mine bwaahahahaha!
Amazingly she ate the entire thing, uninterrupted, un-taunted, and without having to share. Somehow Paisley always ends up 'sharing' with Piper...it's not always voluntary either, so this was a nice change.Mummy had this delight...OMG...it had such an innocuous name 'pumpkin slice'...seriously...it was TO DIE FOR! Notice how the sunlight came through the window and lit up the delectable treat..as if GOD himself was blessing it!

After two weeks of moderate discomfort in my right knee, I had the proverbial 'last straw' this morning when I knelt down to help Paisley onto the potty. I experienced such excruciating pain that I almost passed out on the floor...actually, I almost vomited then passed out! So...I took this as my body's way of saying....or more likely SCREAMING "call the Doctor Hayley!"
I walked out with a knee immobilizer on and the knowledge that my Doctor thinks I tore my meniscus...which will be confirmed by MRI next week. I'm praying that it's just a strain, sprain, knee fart or any other kind of knee injury that doesn't involve surgery! This is not good news, I can't drive, which means I cannot take Piper to school, gymnastics or clean the house...how will I get anything done.
Pray for knee fart, I am.

I'm feeling pretty good today...I searched on Craigslist and found some Flight of the Conchords tickets for Sunday's show! A-MAZING! Mike was absolutely thrilled! We cannot wait! The best part was that we bought them from a student at the U of M who had a conflicting gospel choir performance and we paid only $10 above ticket price AND they are ROCKING seats! These seats are getting $400+ online, so we feel really lucky!
That is...if we can find a babysitter!

EVERYDAY SHOULD BE EARTH DAY
Our planet is a masterpiece, and we are it's only bastions, yet we continue as a race to overwhelm her. Earth was not bestowed to us to slowly deplete and destroy but to cherish, to honor, to respect and in return we get to enjoy her vast beauty and abundance. Somehow I think we are missing the 'true' plan for this amazing blue panet. We need to rethink how we consume, how we manufacture, and how we dispose. REDUCE~REUSE~RECYCLE!
10 Things we can do together to help our planet
1. Consider your trash! We put out ONE small kitchen bag of trash a week, yep ONE and we are a family of four with a potty training daughter!
2. Use cloth bags when you go shopping..not just to the Supermarket..to each and every store you go to!
3. Buy locally grown and made products
4. Hang out your laundry whenever possible.
5. Use cloth diapers or even easier gDIAPERS
6. Plant a tree
8. switch out your cleaning products and laundry soap for natural alternatives...I love Seventh Generation myself, but there are plenty of excellent alternatives that are kinder to the environment.
9. Consider a smaller or more efficient car/suv next time around. Honestly, the amount of giant GMC's toting 2 kids around is shameful!
10. watch the story of stuff and no, it's not left wing liberal propoganda, it's a slice of reality...oh wait, thats the same thing..my bad!

My Mum sent me one of those crazy emails with silly animals in it...I usually don't like them but I have to admit, this one brought a smile to my face...oui oui oui...zat ez a preeety kitty!

mmmmmmm...nice and grubby
I like it when the girls play hard...I wouldn't let them go barefoot in most places, but with the kickin' rubber surface and the 'safeness' of the park and area I felt it was okay to let them go at it like good little kiwi kids for a change!

So fair enough, it's not the most politically correct time to play pirates, but the Snowflowers had an idea and I had to let them run with it. Piper of course is Captain, Paisley is relegated to deck hand come water girl. She doesn't care. Here they are protecting their boat aptly named

Paisley is turning TWO in two weeks...and I have to admit it's like some cosmic timer has gone off in her cute little cerebrum an VOILA...she is trying on the 'terribles' with the same passion as Carrie Bradshaw at a sandal sale at Manolo Blahnik! Her favorite sentences right now are "I don't want to!" and "NO WAY"....ugh! For some reason she is especially scratched up at the moment...we have been calling the girls, 'Scratch' and 'Dent' for obvious reasons!
DONT LET THE CUTE FOOL YOU!

Okay, I'm employing my very best Cockney accent for this one...Paisley grew increasingly impatient with my photograph taking on the weekend. She wanted me in front of the lens, not behind it! She's getting far more assertive about letting us know what she does and does not enjoy. This photo was taken at DEFCON 1...bemused.
