Okay, three blogs in a week is like a blogger record or something, right? Do I get an award? I'm waiting for balloons to start falling from my ceiling any minute.

Anyway, I only have a couple of minutes to blog but I just had to get this off of my chest. THIS IS MY HOUSE RIGHT NOW...sad, I know.
I just feel like a cleaning machine! There's always some sort of craziness going on and I only get to clean during the four 30 minute naps that Sophie takes during the day and by the end of the day I'm too exhausted to be bothered.

So there it is. I'm not going to be embarrassed next time someone drops by unannounced and finds my house looking like this. Whew. I feel better.

Oh, and I just had to throw in that pic of the kids. THAT is what Cameron tried to wear to the park 2 days ago. Ugly Christmas Sweater, beige shirt and blue striped pj pants. Cool.

Hey, no dishes in the sink = clean to me, so your house looks perfect. And if anyone says otherwise, let me know and I'll kick them. I'd drop by if I could! I miss you.

My house usually looks like that, and I only have one kid... Mike. And don't worry, his outfits often look like the one Cameron picked out, so I usually try to dress him, or at least check him out before he leaves the house...

After spending two months in PA, I can tell you that Alyssa's totally lying about the state of her house, but I can vouch for her description of Mike's sense of style :) Lyss, it's been nearly 10years since Karl and I started dating, and his sense of style is still about the same as Mike's. Plan for a lifelong commitment to wardrobe malfunction aversion.

My house is worse than your house, Anna, and tonight I took pictures to prove it. Tomorrow morning I plan to join in the "my day was better than your day, yet my house is messier than your house" contest that seems to be happening among the SILs. I'm too tired to upload the pics and post tonight because after actually looking at the said pictures, I was mortified enough to at least clean my floors and do my dishes. Since I'm currently looking like a beached whale, that's pretty much all I can muster for one day. BTW, I have that same Ikea shoe bench and I like your rug (the one in front of the piano and under the laundry).

And tell Miles that Cannon likes his beebo. Enlarged photos of nearly naked cousins are prone to producing uncontrollable giggles in their counterparts.

Your house looked clean tonight when we came... now when we left, another story but that is half nat's fault! LoVE That Cam wants to wear his christmas sweater, lets just hope he isn't one of those people that still thinks it is ok when he is 30!
