doorknobs that lock ...with a key

So, we learned a lesson today. If you have a doorknob that locks, but do not have the key that will open the locked door, you should replace the doorknob!

Now I am not going to say we weren't warned before about this. The boys have locked themselves in their room in the past but have ALWAYS unlocked the door when we have told them to. Until tonight that is. It all started when Auggie was being his stubborn little self and not cooperating and behaving at the dinner table. I sent him up to his room and told him he could come back down and join us when his attitude was better. He screamed, cried and apparently locked the bedroom door. After we finished dinner I went to check on Auggie and discovered the locked door. Rick, Adeline & I sat at the door for 20 minutes trying to console a very upset Auggie while trying to get him to unlock the door; no luck. We (and when I say we I mean Rick was listening to my suggestion of how to fix the problem) wound up destroying the door in the process of opening it up. Do you know what Auggie was doing when we finally got in there? sleeping!

After that I hurried out of the house to make it to my board meeting for the twins club I belong to. The night did get better though. This is what I came home to :) Four sweet babies all snuggled together. Daddy is actually sleeping alongside of D'Angelo but I didn't get him in the picture.

This was our wonderfully calm evening yesterday. Adeline reading to her monkey.

A boy in princess pajama's

This is just wrong of me isn't it. Oliver needed me to change his pajama's in the middle of the night and this is what I saw in the morning. Great example of why I should not pull pj's from a laundry basket in the dark!

So, why don't I manage to find time to blog?

A few months ago I decided to start selling Usborne books. I was already in love with their books and knew I would be buying lots more for my own kids. I have been very busy the past few weeks doing home shows and holiday bazaars. I am enjoying sharing these great books with my friends and others. Can you believe I was out last Saturday, Sunday afternoon, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night! I know what my kids are getting for Christmas :)

What else have we been up to?

Friday morning we went to a fun playgroup to make fleece hats & pumpkin soup. The kids had a fun time & are wearing their new hats. Auggie ate his whole bowl of soup, D'Angelo ate most of his and Adeline wouldn't even let it touch her lips! I had a small cup of it and it was yummy. Adeline was having so much fun that she didn't want to leave though so she decided to be dramatic and defiant. I wound up having to carry her out without her shoes on to the car. She continued to scream and cry as if I were killing her for another couple of minutes and then she passed out. I knew she was in need of a nap!
