My header pic is Chloe on her 1st birthday. I never got the pics posted, but everytime I see this pic it makes me smile.
Sorry for the depressing post. You'd think I was pregnant if you were around me much. Hopefully things are going to continually get better. The boys are getting over their double ear infections. I got 2 good nights of sleep in a row. Although a couple of the pipes were frozen this morning, they unthawed without bursting. So . . . we'll see how things go.

broken mirrors

I've decided that the bad luck that I had stored up from all the broken mirrors in my past has unleashed it powers on me the last two weeks. I'm too tired to type more. Not even sure if I just made sense. I'll write more tomorrow.

Ethan just watched his "abc movie" as he calls it. After it was done he told me that he did a good job. :o)

cough remedy

Anytime Ethan gets a cold it goes straight to his chest which effects his asthma. He coughs and coughs. Which is what he has been doing the last 3 days or so. My mom told me to put Vicks on his feet before bed and leave his socks on. So I did that last night and he didn't cough a single time. I was pretty impressed. Just thought I would pass the wisdom on. :o)

Uncle David and Ethan


Ethan thinks that Uncle David is one of the best things in the world. If you want to get him excited about something just tell that he gets to see Uncle David. Pretty sweet, I think.

Ethan's timid version of the abc's

video

I was going thru my computer and found this video that I took a couple of months ago. Normally this song is sung at the top of his lungs. :o)

Baby Jake's dedication was this last Sunday morning. Ethan got some cheese time with Molly. I swiped this from Julie's blog. She has a couple of adorable pics of Jake if anyone is interested.
This has been a crazy week. I started my drive back from KS on Monday and got home Tuesday night around 8:30. Wednesday night Joey had dress rehearsal for the GBS program. Friday I cleaned house to get ready for company from MI, and went to the program. After the program I realized that I didn't have any food in the house for our guests so Faith and I went to Papa John's around 10:00 to get a pizza. (This story does have a point) After we ordered it I remembered that I was out of diapers and milk so we ran over to Kroger. (Not literally) Anyways . . I loaded the groceries in the car and Faith pushed the cart over to the parking space beside the car. We went back to Papa John's and waited about 10 more minutes on the pizza. Got it, drove home, pulled into the driveway, and reached for my wallet . . . . which wasn't there. The last place I remembered seeing it was in the grocery cart. Great moment of spazzing!! So I drove frantically back to Kroger ignoring speed limits and most stop signs, and pulled up beside our cart and my wallet was no longer in there. One reason I was so frantic was cuz my family had given $130 cash for gas money to come home on and it was still in my wallet. So ... (she continued her long drawn-out story) . . . I ran into the store (literally) and looked for the security guard. He wasn't in his regular spot. I then went to the customer service desk. There stood the guard and another person going through my wallet trying to find a phone number. And . . . . drum roll . . . . nothing was missing from it. *sigh* I almost burst into tears right there on the spot. The guard said some guy came in and handed it to him. Considering the area of town the Kroger was in, well, let's just say Somebody was looking out for me.
By the way, KS was good and I have a couple of pics from when I was there, but I believe all 3 children are currently pooped so that will come later.
