"Hello, I'm Home!"

Today when I got home from work (around 4:30pm) this is what our dinette table looked like. It looked nothing like this when I left this morning. The table was clear and the boys were eating their hot bran muffins here when I left. Lets see if I can count 13 things there, after all it IS Thursday thirteen...
1. The newspaper
2. Michael's homework
3. A box of popsicle sticks for crafts
4. Some plastic bags from Petco that have been emptied.
5. Koty's frizbee
6. A box of colored pencils
7. Another container of colored pencils
8. The packaging to a dog toy
9. A design book
10. Steven's mechanical pencil
11. A package of Teddy Grahams
12. A choke collar
13. Michael's package of ortho bands
14. The lap top
15. and a heel sander from Dave to me. He says that he got an abrasion on his leg last night while he was sleeping next to me. He's such a funny guy, isn't he?
The table got unburied right after I took this photo, and it was set for dinner. I wish that I had my kids (and husband) trained to pick up really quick when they hear the garage door go up when I get home (jk), although Dave was busy cleaning the garage. (which I'm sure looks great by now!)

And there is Michael ignoring his aunt as she tries to text message his mother.

This one made me laugh! My table has been buried so many times!!!! Your table set for dinner looks lovely by the way!

Let me know if the heel sander works!

Your hubby is funny... I don't think my man would ever think to get me one, even if I do give him abrasions in the night :)

By the way, love your header. They are too cute!

A kitchen table is such a "hot spot" for gathering stuff.

Set your timer and go clear your hot spots!!!
