love it

i hate washing out and reusing plastic sandwich bags. (sorry mom saves any and every baggie she can...including bread bags; how green is she?!). i also hate how many baggies i throw out. problem solved with these super, super cute reusies! the best part: they can be machine washed & dried or go in the dishwasher!! amazing. and wouldn't your sandwich look so much cuter in one of these?? i want some for the snacks i have to carry around in my purse for the boys.
adding to the birthday wish list.

necco baby

one of the things i'll always remember from childhood vacations with the hempel's (that would be my mom's sister, aunt jan, uncle stuey and their 4 kiddos), is uncle stuey with necco wafers. he always had a pack on him, usually in his shirt pocket. while driving, he would toss necco's from his station wagon into ours.
[oh yes, our families rocked station wagons big time. even better though, we had CB radios ("brown to blue, come in blue")! made for some very fun road trips. and some very annoyed truck drivers.]
back to the necco's: besides throwing them from car to car, there was even a contest to see who could suck on their necco for the most miles. it ended up being some ridiculous amount of miles and probably uncle stuey winning. (anyone remember??)
malacai recently had his very first taste of a necco, given to him by uncle stuey of course.

other than being a little disappointed at not receiving his thrown from a window while driving 70 miles an hour down the highway, he enjoyed every last lick!

chasing rainbows

last night after the storm, cait happened to glance out the window and noticed that the end of the rainbow was in our backyard. literally, dancing through our backyard. by the time we all got out there, and got our cameras out there, the rainbow had danced its way to the field. and eventually danced out of eye sight. but it was so incredibly amazing.

my question is, where's our pot of gold??
