I wanna love, I wanna give.
I want to find another way to live.

- "Walls" by Yes

I love this song by Yes. I find the lyrics to be very
inspirational. I think that they give (in a very small nutshell) a
life plan. I want to find a new way to do good by others, every day!
I want to make a difference and fight for what really matters. I want
to be more loving towards my fellow men. I want to give more of
myself and be involved in something greater than me and my little
world. I want to "forget myself and get to work".

I want to find another way to live. And when I do, I'll let you
know. :)

How did this happen???

Here I am showing the jam smear in my armpit. How did this happen?

This week I was a little bit lonely. Just a bit. And a little bit gloomy. Just a tad. Here is the deal; when I get glum, I am just going to have to be glum. Nothing I can do will change it. I could go to the park and have all the people who I love the most over for dinner, but I will still have to be glum. I have my ups and downs. And sometimes I have to be down. I must! It must be in order for me to go back up again. Thankfully I know that I will go back up again, and fairly soon. And for this gift, I am truly grateful.

Despite my *slight* gloom, happiness (and cuteness) was still about, as you can see:

*I love my kids!* :)

Easter and Lexi B-day

So Little Time . . .

I never have enough time to do everything that I wanna do! It drives me crazy! Does anybody know what to do about this?

Well, this week was a busy week. The highlights include Lexi's B-day and Easter, of course. Lexi's b-day was mucho fun. It was a little hectic and crazy, but still fun. Kenny was sick on her B-day and I didn't realize he was until we were halfway through the party. After he puked all over me for the 3rd time, I figured something was up. Unfortunately one of our littler guest caught our germs. Lexi caught it too. Thankfully it seems to be just a 24 hr stomach bug.

Here is a highlight of my Lexi Lumpkin!

Alexandra Dawnette

Occupation: Head Mess Maker (oversees all mess making procedures to maximize all mess making capabilities.)

Hair Color: Light Brown with Blond highlights

Eye Color: Deep Blue

Likes: Pretending to be a "baby crab" or a kitty, climbing in bed with Momma @ 3am, dressing up Kenny, playing with Kenny in crib, baths, chocolate, giving hugs, listening to Momma sing, singing with Momma, wrestling with Daddy, being a helper and a sweetie pie!

Dislikes: Listening to Kenny cry, loud noises, Ambulance sirens, meat of any kind, being denied more T.V., wearing socks, Kenny grabbing toys.

Traits: Sweet, loving, helpful, intelligent, beautiful, funny, silly, mischievous, curious.

Next are pictures. Taa taa!

A New Kind of Poetry

I used to write poetry all the time. A lot of it really stunk and was cheesy. However, I have had a few that I still think are pretty good. Here is one that just came to me as I was bantering back and forth in my head about what I didn't want to do that day. . . Maybe it is just plain weird. But I like it for some reason. Just remember that there are two voices, okay?

Who Likes It?
Who likes cleaning up messes?
Not me.


. . .

Who like doing dishes?

Not me!

oh, . . .
. . .

Who likes enforcing discipline?

Not ME!
oh. . .

hmm. . .
. . . . . . . . . .
Who likes sweet snuggles?

I do.


Who like playing and puzzles?

I do!


Who likes hugs and kisses and Dandelion wishes
smiles just because you came in the room?!

I do!!


Who loves being a Mother?

We do.
Oh yeah . . .

(most of the time : ) )

Are some pics, of course!

Lexi decided to dress Kenny up the other day.
*He didn't like it, but endured*

So cute, even in a dress . . .

. . . but still ridiculous! Ha ha ha!!!
*Lexi even forced him to wear hair clips, not shown*

But not quite as ridiculous and myself.
*I have a small dress around my shoulders that Lexi picked out for me*

Another Family train. Choo Choo!
