Not me......Monday....

Not Me Monday.....
No matter what anyone else tells you NONE of the following happened this week....
1. No we did not spend the last week at Sunset beach and rent a beach house and LOVE every minute of it! No we did not have awesome weather & as you can see our kids did not enjoy themselves.

2. No Tim did not take this picture of his 3 girls and no I do not look like I will be turning 30 this year and no those are NOT wrinkles by my eyes & chin. Nope!

3. No Luke did not make this face almost every time we took his picture. No those are not the most adorable blue eyes ever... nope!

4. No Karsten did not enjoy sliding down the sand on his tummy and no he did not do it over and over and... then he certainly did not keep doing it after he ate a mouthful of sand.

5. No our last baby did not turn 11 months this week and she is still not crawling. (She really isn't crawling but getting ready to)

6. No the Bagley Bunch did not come down to visit us while at the beach and no I did not let the kids eat popcorn & watch a movie in the Master bedroom... and later that night I did not have to pick up pieces of popcorn from our bed... nope!


7. No our precious baby girl did not learn to say "ta-da" and does not throw her hands up when she shouts it. No I do not LOVE this picture....
8. No we did not have an AWESOME time with the Thompson's and no this is not Daddy Thompson parading around the fountain with my 3 older kids at the Irvine Spectrum.9. No Luke did not ride this GIANT Rainbow flip flop in a sandal store at the Irvine Spectrum.
10. No this was not Ainsley's 1st time in sand....
11. No this is not a baby Blue Whale that was washed up on the shore in front of our beach house and not is is not dead with it's eyes open and no it did not get hit by a boat (see it's back).12. No this is not me making my kids stand with the dead whale in the background so I could get a picture of them with a dead whale.... no never that would be morbid or something!
13. No I do not LOVE this picture of Ainsley and no I did not post alot of pictures of my sweet baby girl. That would be totally unfair to my other children.
14. No this is not another pic of AJ and no she is not wanting to take off her sun hat every chance she gets.

15. No we did not go to Ruby's 5 times to get our kids milkshakes this week..... nope never... we never bribe them with rewards and we never let them eat dairy or sugar... that would be awful... nope! (We were on vacation.... oh well!)
16. No this was not our kids VERY 1st year dying Easter Eggs and no these are not them.... and no Karsten did not think that dying Easter eggs meant killing them.... nope.
17. No we did not tell our kids that the Easter Bunny emailed daddy and told him that he will be coming 1 day early so that they can get their baskets while at the beach. And most certainly we did not say that the Easter Bunny's email address was: EB@ground.egg. We would never say such a thing that would be totally lying to our kids.
18. No SLUGS did not take over Karsten's eggs that the EB (Easter Bunny) hid outside in the sand & ice plant. No we did not have to throw his eggs filled with cookies away.... nope never!
19. No Karsten did not hop up next the the Statue of Liberty in Red Robin and tell me to take his picture.
20. No we did not have an awesome vacation this last week!
