Bedtime and Beacon

Brother loves to be read to before he goes to bed. Lately we have been reading "Fablehaven" by Brandon Mull. Awesome book. There are 4 or 5 and it is our goal to finish the series before summer ends.

Marc snuck a picture of me reading to Brother because he thought it was cute to have Baby sitting on my lap listening to the story.

My first thought was, "Oh my gosh! Look at me. I look like I way 300 pounds in this picture. My double chin! My stomach! Uggh! Me in 'all my glory'!"

Ya, go ahead an look. It is true. It was a surprise picture, I didn't have the opportunity to to suck in or turn to my good side. Me in all my glory!

And then, I thought, who cares what I look like physically in this picture, this is my glory... spending time with my kids. So, people, look and judge all you want the point is not how I look but, what I am doing... so enjoy it for what it is... "Me in all my glory!" Tee hee! (Not to mention I look like I am an old lady wearing my reading glasses.)

After the kids were all in bed, Marc whispers to me from the kitchen, "Rachael, come here and don't turn the lights on." I walk out onto the porch and there is a flashing light coming from the window well... what the...

Oh, yes, it is a flasher....

no, no, not a naked person wearing a trench coat...

a flasher for construction...

flashing light.



Ya.

A homing beacon.

In my window well.

mmm hmmm

I know who did this.

I even know who owns it.

But, it wasn't the owner who is the culprit, they were only the supplier.

Let the summer games begin!

Ummmm, ya. I only dream of being your kind of 300 pounds, haha! I guess I must be 500 pounds? You are adorable!

I'm intrigued with the flasher. My aunt had a person sized plastic bigfoot replica show up in her front yard one day. Now it stands in her yard and gets outfitted to the current holiday. If only I could find one of those for you.
