And Then There Were Four

A picture says a thousand words, but I'll just add a few more. After all, I'm starting to feel half alive again finally. Some of you may have noticed my lengtly blogging slumps over the past four or five months. Beside cold after cold after cold that our family battled in the first few months of 09, there was our confernce (we had 10 guests stay with us for the weekend), more colds after conference, then spring hit with a vengence - being a lot warmer than usual and bringing the alergy plagues with it. On top of all that, there's been the general spring/summer busyness that seems to just whirl us into non-stopness for weeks on end. And through it all I was exhausted with no time to be tired. Definitely not a feeling I'd wish on anyone else!

Today we're celebrating PC's 3rd birthday, and the kids all got new t-shirts to wear for the day. I expect they'll cause quite the stir - but we thought we'd do something different this time. Anyway, I'll let the pictures do most of the rest of the talking since I have a few phone calls to make before the party.

A little better look

So, July 9th is officially the first day of our sixth month, and now that the news is out... I can dig out some more comfortable clothes! And wait until November 8th-ish. 'Cause we're gonna have another baby!

PC is turning 3 on Tuesday. We're having his birthday party on Saturday. So, for my own organization this will be a check list for what I have left to do. I might take pictures later, but right now, there are priorities. :)

Bake cakes
Make jell-o
Wash dishes
Unload and load dishwasher
Find tape
Wrap presents
Assemble cake
Make and color icing
Ice cake
Make taco filling
Chop vegetables
Grate cheese
Get matching shirts ready for kids
Take garbage out
Feed birds
Take a shower
Clean bathroom
Make guacamole
Make iced tea
Sort through last clothing container
Wash Dishes (again)
Figure out how to get everything to the park or if we won't be going to the park(right now our car is dead)

There may be more, and I'll add it if I think of it, but right now it's almost 11 and I need to make sure the cakes are baked tonight.

Copy Cat

NaomiG did a Father's Day interview with her girls and just for fun I thought I'd see if my munchkins would hold still long enough to think about the questions if I asked them.
