I took the kids to a WIC appointment today and they were weighed and measured. Ethan weighed 38 lbs. and was 40 inches tall. Joel weighed 34 1/2 lbs. and was 38 inches tall. Chloe weighed 25 lbs. and was 29 inches tall. The lady told me that Chloe as 4 pounds overweight. Give me a break. If she's anything like her mother . . well, enough said.
After that appointment I took the kids home for naps and set Joey up with the Xbox. (just kidding he knows how to turn it on all by himself) Then off to an hour and 1/2 long oil change. That's just ridiculous. After 10 minutes mine was the only car in there. Somebody was getting paid for nothing if you ask me. But I endured because this just puts me one step closer to leaving for KS on Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well . . enough rambling. As soon as the cherry pie (thank you Sara Lee) comes out of the oven I'm gonna wake up the kids and go to Andrea's (my SIL) house for supper. Hope everyone has a good night.

A few things have happened since "the coma". My little girl turned one. I'll upload some pics from that later. My father died so Chloe and I flew out to KS for a week, and I got to see lots of fam I hadn't seen in a while. And . . . I've caught eight mice in my house since moving back in. Disgusting, I know. I don't know of any more holes in the house that aren't plugged, so hopefully I've seen the last of these little boogers. If not, I have about 10 traps set throughout the house. I will be victorious. Sorry to go on and on, but I feel very passionate about keeping rodents in their place. Although I will say one more thing. As punishment for trespassing in my house I put the trapped mouse outside and watch it slowly die, and eventually Mr. Cat from next door comes and takes it away. Heh heh.

If I am uninterrupted this blog will be lengthy while I play a little catch up. Big "if."

We took some time out from unpacking our house to hang out with Joey's fam. His sister Andrea came down for the weekend for his sister Carrie's high school graduation. Andrea's daughter, Sophie, is sitting beside Joel. They had a great time playing together this weekend.
I have yet to get my computer set up, but once I do I'll have several pictures to post.

Joel also got his first haircut recently. I was ready for a fight cuz Ethan has to be held down and screams the whole time. Joel just sat there and hardly moved a muscle. Thank goodness for at least one laid back child.
Here are some pics of him from the last month.

I was up a good part of the night with Chloe last night so this morning he let me stay in bed and got up with the kids. At some point in the middle of a terrible dream where I was running around my chiropractor's office frantically looking for my skirt that somehow disappeared (there are a lot more details, but I'll spare you) . . . anyways . . I heard a far off voice that ended up being Joey's asking me if I wanted pancakes. My first thought was, "Are you kidding me? I'm sleeping!" But thankfully I opened my eyes before saying anything. He was standing there with a plate full of pancakes and a big glass of milk. I couldn't believe it! So I ate breakfast in bed. Can't remember the last time I did that. Halfway through he came back up with the milk to make sure I had enough. When I was done he took my plate and let me sleep for another hour. Next thing I know it's 11:00 and he is waking me to tell me he has to get ready for work. That was my kind of morning. Thanks, babuh!
