Happy Birthday!

To my blog! I just noticed a couple of days ago that it's been a year today since I started this. Nobody probably cares but me, actually I really don't care that much . . so new subject.

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.

Chloe was very excited to go on the plane with Mommy to KS. Actually, she had no clue. I think the smile was for the bag of food that I had just gotten out of my bag. She's so like her mother.


I don't remember what was going on the other night, but Joey tried to get the boys to salute. It didn't quite happen. Especially for Joel.

Baby Brenna

Joey's sister, Andrea, had a baby on September 12th. Chloe looked SO big next to Brenna. She's no longer my little cuddly baby. But . . I will continue getting my baby "fix" from Brenna and Jake, and quit thinking about little tiny sweet cuddly babies.

He wanted to wear this while we walked through the mall. Need I say more?


Guess who wanted to get dressed by themself. . It seems we have some work to do in the style department.

Here, Mousey Mousey

This was mousey number 3 or 4. Can't remember. He was actually kinda cute in a helpless sort of way. Anyways, just thought I would share my joy.

I have a computer again! I feel like I've been trying to play a Bach prelude without having my pinky fingers.

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.
