10 Years of Wow

My high school 10-year reunion is this year. I think it will be really fun, but of course this momentous occasion has me thinking about all the things I've learned in the past 10 years.

Like I always thought if you gained fat it would layer evenly over your entire body. Because while I may have only gained 8-10lbs since graduation day, all those pounds seem to have somehow accumulated on my neck and jaw area. Strange.

I've learned that having a baby made my rib cage permanently wider. What?! Daphne did not grow in my lungs, thankyouverymuch.

Also, I've discovered that even though I can finally stay out as late as I want, I would rather be home and in my p.j.s by 9 P.M.

It's been a very productive 10 years, if I do say so myself.

Of course you know my greatest achievement (besides being able to keep chickens alive for a year...oh wait, that's not even true since 3 died over the winter and we had to replace them. So never mind) is in this video, where I have taught my young daughter to dress herself:

Heh. And you also almost lost 4 more chickens to dehydration last week. Good thing i like chickens, eh? :)

That video is adorable! Jude makes the exact same noises of concentration, and he too has tried to put his pants on his head. Personally, I think we're raising genius trendsetters. :)

Oh yes, thank you for saving our chickens. How were we supposed to know the sun was going to shine while we were gone???

i admit, that is rare this time of year.

Just got around to watching this video. Daphne is so awesome! And her hair is getting to long! In this video it sort of reminds me of Elvis. :)
