The sound of silence …

Wednesday April 9, 2008

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of nothing! Today, “nothing” can best be described as: the dog not whining to come inside (he’s always on the wrong side of the door) the baby not crying cuz he’s dirty/hungry/whateva the big sister not jumping off any furniture or dragging any heavy objects across her...

I’ve been too busy too blog…

I’ve been scrapping! I love to work on scrapbooks, but hate the time and space it consumes. I just got the newest version of Adobe Photoshop Elements and I am sold on going digital!  Seriously, I will be hard-pressed to go back to paper scrapping. In theory, I’m saving on time and space and...

Hernia Update

Wednesday April 2, 2008
By

I took Adam yesterday to meet with a pediatric surgeon to get her opinion on his umbilical hernia. She told us what I pretty much expected to hear — wait and see. Umbilical hernias do have the possibility of closing on their own, and surgeons typically don’t repair them before age 2 or 3....

Easter Bounty

We had a wonderful Easter day! On our way to church We started the day attending a church in the neighborhood. They had an 8:30am service and I figured, we had a better shot at making an 8:30 service 2 minutes away than the 8am service at our church, 20 minutes away. Plus, IBC...

Sam has a Bear Buddy

Now that I have three kids to keep track of, I worry more about one of them bolting on me in a dangerous place. They usually listen well and they usually obey, but we all know we can’t count on a two year old to maintain a perfect track record. And that worries me...

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I decided that Wendy & I needed a little mom-daughter time together, so I arranged for Grammy to come watch Sam & Adam while Wendy and I had a little date. I gave her the option of going to see a movie or getting her nails painted and ears pierced. She was excited to...

Uh… a little help?

We have deep window wells on one side of our house. Sam threw the green rake (and a ball) down into one. Then he decided he wanted them back. Apparently I wasn’t offering assistance fast enough, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. I didn’t see how he got in there,...

Spring has sprung!

Today is the first official day of spring. To celebrate, Wendy & Sam decided to play a little croquet. Despite the 30mph winds, they seemed to have a good time … right up until Sam clocked himself in the head with a mallet and decided he had enough.  Here are a few pics, prior...

Sam Loves the Layered Look

I blame daddy for this one. He is always putting the kids in layered clothes – long sleeve shirt on bottom, then a short sleeve on top. Not because he thinks they will get cold, but because he thinks it’s a cool look [Edit:  Mike says the cool factor is only part of it…...
