Blogs and Sleepovers

R and G are very intrigued with why I blog. They've known for years that I do something with the computer, which relates to why I take pictures of almost anything we do or make in the kitchen. But the other day I came into our play room/office and found the boys:

R informed me that they were setting up their own blog, one for all their Lego creations. Not a bad idea, eh? Thank goodness that SPH is a computer whiz and has already created a log-in for R, that basically allows him to go to a handful of websites, and blocks all others.

This weekend we had R's first sleepover with a friend from school. I love being a "fly on the wall" to their conversations, which suddenly sound so much more grown-up and advanced. Thankfully the worst word I heard during the sleepover was "fart."

But all in all the sleepover went well and we actually got a decent amount of sleep. But the boys were up a little after 6am, which on a Saturday morning can be brutal. What's a mom to do? I got up with the boys and we made pancakes.

After a cup of strong tea and these "mom survived hosting her first sleepover" pancakes, and all was right in the world:

Basically, my foolproof homemade pancake recipe, with some miniature chocolate chips and diced cooked bacon mixed in to the batter. A little piece of heaven, drowned in a bath of maple syrup.

Have a great week All-

Glad to hear the sleepover was a success!

My girls pretend to "check their e-mail" all the time! And they like to see my blog and look at the pictures of themselves. Luckily they haven't taken to blogging themselves!

Evan tries to play on my computer too. I'm a little worried he's going to press a button he shouldn't!!

Oh that is too cute and funny. And bacon in the pancakes? Wow. Sounds yum!
