Who Lives Here?

It seems I have a little squirrel living in my house.

It's getting ready for winter by burying pumpkin cookies in my couch.

And storing chocolate chips in the windowsill.

Hmmm...Do squirrels drink the rest of the cider from the jug and use towels to clean up the spills?

Nope, it's only two busy children who empty all the Nesquik on the counter and then use the dirty dishes in the sink to soak their feet.

At least they didn't shove anything perishable in the couch! Finding pumpkin cookies=cute, finding old cheese=NOT cute! :)

I finally got around to posting, thanks for noticing that I fell off the face of the earth! :)

Yeah!! I am so glad that it doesn't only happen at my house. I seriously am going to sleep better tonight! That picture of the two squirrels is priceless. (and at least Kate has clean feet:)

Love this series! Your kids are SO lucky you let them be kids! I'm afraid my OCD tendancies might make me a MEAN mom!! But, hey. Maybe I should just let it go. How bad could a little bit of sticky hurt me??

Your kids are so funny! I did call from Montana, but I couldn't find the blocks...I was at a craft store, and while I was spending, I thought I might as well splurge!!! I'll have to look here in I.F. for the 'supplies'.

Oh I love it! Her cute little piles (and look at you all brave with these pictures!). It's inspiring.

btw....another darling picture of little Kate. For heaven's sakes, we need to find a beauty pagent mommy to adopt her for the competitions (and then give her right back to you of course).

Now this presents more questions? Others may ask, "wha? Are you offending Elena? Why can't she take her own daughter to said competitions?"

Because Elena simply doesn't care....

I'm still curious to see how well Kate would do. Her talent could be storing up food for the winter in her little corners around the house.
