I know I haven't posted much since being home, but I have been so busy. Between getting settled back in, the kids school projects, and trying to get new spring designs for Cloud Nine, I have burning the candle at both ends. I apologize and will do a better job of posting more frequently.

We have been home officially a month today and to be honest, things are going extremely well. Our only "real" issue is that Kalia does NOT like school and will NOT go. We are slowly working on easing her back into it with the cooperation of the school, so things are getting better. I will post more on that issue later, but overall, she is truly a fabulous addition to our family.

I have to work on taxes today (ughhhh), but before I did that I wanted to post a funny story about Mylee. Mylee is a hoot, all the time. She may be small, but she has the biggest personality. EVERYone at school knows Mylee, and they all say how much fun she is to be around. She cracks us up on a daily basis.

Anyway, last weekend she had a project due for school so while she was taking a shower, I was getting the craft supplies out so we could work on it. She came downstairs, hoisted herself up on the chair and was ready to go. Mylee LOVES school and anything to do with school, so doing a craft for school was an added bonus in her book.

I noticed right away that she had some sort of mark on her eyebrow. She had a red mark going through her eyebrow so I asked her what happened.

Me: Mylee, what happened to your eye

Mylee: I don't know

Me: Mylee, did you fall down?

Mylee: I don't know

Me: Mylee you have a red mark on your eye. Does it hurt? How do you not know what happened?

Mylee: I don't know.

And then with a very serious face, she says...

"Probably somebody jacked me up. Everybody jacks me up in this family except you."

Me: (trying NOT to smile or laugh) What do you mean somebody jacked you up? Who would jack you up?

Mylee: (still very serious) Can we do my project now.

Mylee is always saying stuff like this and it obviously keeps us smiling. She is such a funny little girl.

I can assure you no one "jacked" her up. If anything, she is usually the one doing the "jacking up."

I just had to share this, because I laugh everytime I think about it.
