I figured a defintion of the word mook was in order so everyone can understand where our domain name came from. My brother James coined the phrase many moons ago. Everyone in our family uses this word in everyday vocab, including Connor.

Here is a good examle of a mook that just happened today. I realized today that we are leaving in a little over 2 weeks and hadn’t bought plane tickets yet. For some reason in my mind I thought we still had three weeks. So I got online and ticket prices had gone up to $125 instead of $110 and the only flight at that price leaves at 7:00 a.m. Okay, sort of a mook but not that big of a deal. I call our airport ride to make sure they can take us at the butt crack of dawn. Yes, they can. It was time for us to go to our playgroup so I figured I would just make the reservations during naptime. I get online at 3:00 and here’s the mook…the price had jumped to $180 a ticket! Oh boy. So we end up spending $700 on tickets, not even including the $100 to check our cat. Good thing the company has given us money to cover things like this! But, it’s still a huge mook. We are paying boucoup (how do you even spell that?) bucks to fly out so dang early in the morning and if I had just bought the tickets two weeks ago I would have saved us a couple hundred bucks. Mookarama!

Connor and Logan were so cute today. I took Logan in to wake up Connor from his nap. Connor just lit up when he saw Logan standing next to his bed. I can’t really describe it, but it was so cute. He wanted to sit in the rocking chair with Logan and I was actually able to get a decent picture of the two of them together. It toally made my day!

Derek officaly turned in his thesis today! I am so proud of him. So much time, energy, and work went into those 190 pages. There is still some work to be done, but the worst is behind him…really behind us. Although he was the one doing all the writing and research, this time has been hard on all of us. Horray for my love being only 11 days from becoming Dr. Derek! (which I fully expect everyone to call him.)

  1. Yeah Derek!!! Oooops, I mean Dr. Derek! 🙂 I’m so excited for ya’ll! The boys are soooo big and precious! I can’t wait to spend time with them and time scrapbooking with you in a couple of weeks!

  2. I have 2 mook examples for you and for your viewers. I mop my floor about once every 3 or 6 months…I did this last week and the same night my children found corn syrup and dumped it over everything. Example #2: 2 days later after re-cleaning the floor, Chase poured Danimals yogurt all over the kitchen floor – my house is a complete Mookarama! Lesson: Dont mop your floor, it is a waste.

  3. Love it! Yayayayayaya…love the new blog! Love that you used the word mook! LOL…long story with us, but it goes way back, and so fun to find yet another fun common ground we have! 🙂 Also loving all these great photos…I can’t wait to see them scrapped! :)))
