Hello All!

Just thought I'd drop ya'll a note, and tell you that we (the kids and I) are leaving for a 2 week vacation to Texas. We have a lot of fun stuff planned including Sea World San Antonio, The Alamo, lots of fishing for the boys, and several backyard-barbeque-family-get-togethers!!! The weather forcast says low 80"s while we're there. :)

I thought I'd leave you with some recent pictures of the munchkins.

When I get back, I fully expect SPRING to be here waiting for us.

See you soon!


Jackson doing chores. Doesn't he look excited?
Yes, Savannah is STANDING at her piano.
She will be walking in a matter of weeks.

although I'd rather be barefoot anytime.

Steph at Adventures in Babywearing has a photo tag going on right now.. she wants to see your favorite shoes. Right now, and 9 months out of the year, my favorite shoes are FLIP FLOPS! But when the snow flies...

it's knee high black , or brown boots for me. Be sure to go over to Adventures In Babywearing, and see her cute shoes :)

I am trying to decide if I should try some Crocs? My initial reaction was "those look like gardening shoes" BUT everyone seems to be wearing them EVERYWHERE? What do YOU think, do you wear CROCS? Should I try them??

Sorry I haven't been around much. SO much to do, so little time.
I have been promising everyone more pictures of the here are some new ones of Savannah. She is turning into such a little ham.
Oh! She's crawling. Everywhere. This has added a whole new dimension to my housework. Three messy boys, and one inside dog make it pretty challenging to keep the floor spotless. Then there is the mouse/mice that have decided to take up residence in my house. I have been setting traps, and vacuuming like a mad woman every day. AAHHHHH! I HATE MICE!!
Did I mention I am just a little ready for spring? I broke out my flip-flops when we went to Florida..and I am still wearing them :)
My apologies to everyone whose emails I have not returned, and Blogs I haven't read. I will try to get caught up soon.
Happy Thursday!

You know you are drinking too much coffee when...
You can "out-yip" your chihuahua.
There's more grounds than soil around your garden plants.
You make coffee ice cubes for your iced coffee.
You eat coffee jello (or coffee agar for coffee-lovin' vegetarians).(The above four are courtesy of Ruth Gagliano)
You haven't blinked since the last lunar eclipse.
All your kids are named "Joe."
You've built a miniature city out of little plastic stirrers.
You have a picture of your coffee mug on your coffee mug.
People get dizzy just watching you.
You sleep with your eyes open.
You have to watch videos in fast forward.
You don't get mad; you get steamed.
You don't tan; you roast.

Psalms 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

More vacation pictures

Everyone seems to be recovering from the bug that went around. I'd like to post a few more vacation pictures from my recent trip to Florida.

Savannah and I took in some much need sunshine. It was about 85 degrees this particular day we went to the beach. Much warmer than Indiana!!!

This is Jacob (a friend of the family) burying Adrian in the sand.

Austin searching for seashells to bring home to Indiana.

Jeremy did some fishing after entertaining the kids.

The kids body surfing. The water was cold (I thought) but it didn't stop the kids.

My Sister Finally has a blog!
Take a moment and visit Kelli's blog, and give her some encouragment and tips on blogging! Not only is she my sister, but also my best friend. She lives in Denver, and I get to see her once or twice a year. I saw this picture, and thought of her. She loves bunnies, and has 2 in her apartment.
Photo Tag: Bump!!

Steph, has a photo tag going on, and has asked us to post pregnant belly pictures. I should have had these up yesterday, but Savannah has been really sick.

I couldn't find the one I was looking these will have to do. This is in 1997, 7 months pregnant with Jackson. Jeremy was in the army at the time.

Oh yes! I used to be bleach blond. Jeremy was teasing me last night while we were looking at these, that I was an Anna Nicole Smith look alike (in the hair department anyway ;) )

Sick day.

Savannah has had "the crud" since we returned from Florida, the works: congestion, cough, fever, and vomiting. She has finally broken her fever, whew!

So, we are playing "hookey" from church today, to recooperate. It's so wierd being home without any boys (Jeremy took them to church, and will be gone most of the day). I have a nice, quiet house to snuggle with my sick baby. I was going to take a pic of her for my blog, but she looks way too pitiful, poor little thing. I've attached another Florida picture instead :)

More vacation memories...
We found our favorite restaurant, Flounders. When we lived in Pensacola it was our favorite beachside hang out.

We hung out with the locals. Notice Adrian staring at the statue trying to figure out if he is real or not.

Silly boys!!!

Two milestones..
While vacationing Savannah started to wave hello, and bye-bye. Not probably very excting to most people, but to a mommy, it's just amazing :) Yes, I find joy in the silly, little things.

She also had her first ever "sink bath". Which, turns out, she likes much better than her regular tubby!
