I don't know if you can tell by this photo....

..but while I was brushing my teeth, Lily shoved 2 discs in the disc drive....awesome!

A little more about our morning.....

- Due to the disc & kid-not-getting-ready-when-they-should issues, we almost missed Jack's bus from the school for his field trip to our church for his Christmas concert rehearsal.

- I had a bit of extra time before picking the boys up again, so decided to get a couple of gifts to donate to the Salvation Army (one of the drop boxes was robbed in our city).  I thought it would be nice to pick something out that each of my children would like, knowing that another child of the same sex/age would probably like the same.  HUGE NOTE: DO NOT take your 2 year old that you can't reason with when buying a gift that she would love that she can't have!!!!!!!!!!!  She proceeded to scream through the entire store.  People stopped us and asked her if she was ok.  I know I could've just removed her from the situation.....but seriously....I HAVE NO TIME!!!

- Lucky for me, I have a wonderful Mom's was our weekly "date", and my kids behaved and I was able to get out of the rut that the morning had started!

- And also lucky me.....I get to watch Jack's Christmas concert tonight & then go visit with some good friends after!

First of all, who robs a Salvation Army drop box??? That is so disturbing! As awful as it must have been for you to have Lily screaming throughout the whole store, I find the story kind of funny. But I shouldn't talk or laugh for that matter since it will happen to me one day.

Hopefully you got the 2 discs out of the drive?!?!

Have fun tonight with friends & Jack's concert! Obviously I want to see pictures! xo
