So it's pretty rare to get a picture of Daisy without her fists crammed into her mouth. And here's a picture of the kids in my bed, where they both usually end up before the night is over. The sheetrockers will be done at our house by Monday! So now I have to pick out paint colors. It's a good thing both of my brothers are coming home for Christmas so I can have some help painting (and tiling). Andy really wants me to paint Daisy's room pink, but I don't think I could stomach that.
Andy wrote his first letter to Santa Claus. He was wondering why we couldn't just call him on the phone and tell him what he wanted. Seriously though, the last thing this kid needs is new toys! I don't even know what to get him because he has everything. He asked Santa for pirate toys (he is obsessed with being pirate these days), a scooter (still a little too young for that one), and of course more trains and cars. I got him some good old fashioned Lincoln Logs, which I think he'll love because he is really into puzzles and things that get put together.
The other day I was getting so sick of all the toys being a big jumbled mess, so I bought some clear plastic storage containers to organize them in. While I was making dinner, Andy hauled them all into the living room, layed them out on the floor, and proceeded to sort and organize all of his toys into the appropriate categories! I couldn't have done it better myself. I've never seen a three year old who is a neat freak before, but he totally is. He will get the vacuum out himself to vacuum crumbs on the floor. And he gets really upset if the wrong color hangers are in his closet (white go in his closet, blue are for mine). He even puts away his own laundry (no joke! in the right drawers too!) I am one of those people who is really organized in theory, but not so much in practice. I have a goal though when we get into our new house, I'm going to be super organized a
nd clean. Does anyone else love the show Clean Sweep? I'm obsessed!
Right now I am also loving: Iron Chef America, Throwdown with Bobby Flay, House, and Jon & Kate Plus 8.
P.S. Does anyone know what happened to Lost?

Lost doesn't start until after Christmas this year, so it can run continously without interuption. I also love Iron Chef America. I love cooking shows all of the sudden- it makes me feel like I'm cooking even if I'm not.
