I snapped this photo before I snuck out.
The gang finally got up.
|I love everyone's expression in this photo. Makes me giggle every time.|
I cranked up my 'Three Little Birds' Pandora channel - and got the party started.
I made the kids fold some laundry...

A little IKEA should fix any kind of day gone bad - but not today. There was an issue with a price, some weird happenings in Smaland involving two kids that were thrown in time out unjustly, and a Momma leaving IKEA without a new kitchen table.
Plus, Christopher took this awful, crummy picture of me...
|The sun was in my eyes - what?!?|

Which brings us to right now - me: blogging and drinking a glass of Chardonnay (thanks Christopher <3), Christopher: lounging shirtless and watching tosh.O on Hulu, Kids: dreaming away.
