Time Change?

Was there one I didn't know about?
My son USED to hang out in his crib until nearly eight a.m.
I realize I am typing this at almost 7:30, which is pretty darn near 8. 
But his yells have now gotten pretty pitiful. Which means he has thrown something out of his bed that he REAL wants, and I have to go get him. 
I slept in today and don;t have time to post photos but I can prolly write a fast LIST:
1. I am totally making a dress. It might not suck. 
2. I only had 2 bad things to eat yesterday.
3.I am doing the grocery shopping today. Joy. 
4. I have a random mark on my arm that looks EXACTLY like I walked into a dirty brick wall in a bar, brushed up against it, really. That's not what happened,just what it looks like.  It could just be leftover mascara, slept into my arm overnight. 
5. The Smiths have not died. We're just taking a break, I guess.
6. This is making me feel cool.

this is what the Goo looks like when he watches too much TV while I clean bathrooms

some more by milo the photographer
milo saying 'ceeeeese'
my feet and a goldfish cracker on the floor
cheeks and chin
he has his daddy's feet and legs
that's my old-lady hand and no-butt
i took this one. i was trying to get a pic of the 'booboos' on our feet. mine is on my right big toe. i dropped milo's folding table on it while on the phone. generally i am a pretty good multi-tasker. milo calls his boo-boo 'bubble'. it is hilarious. 
i took this one too. i just really like it. milo fell asleep in my arms shortly thereafter.

Easter Photos and a bit of digression.

Easter has long been a favorite holiday of mine, before I even became a Christian. Spring is my FAVORITE season and includes my birthday (which is on Friday!!!). 

After becoming born again, this holiday has taken on such a deeper meaning for me. It has become more personal and more special. I won't share my testimony unless someone asks, but the meaning of Easter is something that is very near and dear to my heart (and I am sure I am not alone here). 

Even if you don't believe or think I am full of beans...JC died for YOU. Try to remember that when you stuff your face full of Peeps or you bite the face off a chocolate bunny. 

DIGRESSION OVER as an Easter gift to Milo(thank you Nana and Papa), Mr. Smith found some Thomas the Train stuff on eBay for a song. We set it up the night before, along with his handmade Easter basket (thanks Mom!) and some candy-filled eggs. I was hoping he'd collect the eggs (bawk-bawks) and then go play with trains (choochoos). 

Yes-he does sleep with cars. Yes-he took zero notice of the eggs and rushed to the train set. The photos are so blurry because he is fast. 

While the boys played trains, I read them this (the resurrection story):
And tried not to cry. 
Then after church and Milo's nap we went to Nana and Papa Smith's house where Milo got MORE cars. Sally and Fillmore from the movie Cars, if you're interested. He literally didn't put them down for days. 
Have a good day everyone! Tune in tomorrow for the beginning of the Something Project!!!!

It starts tomorrow. 
Along with a dear friend...

The plan is to post photos every day. She and I will take a photo of SOMETHING that goes along with the theme of the day. With descriptions when necessary. 

Be sure to check back!!!!
