Totally off subject...

We had a interesting weekend and had a surprise party for MOM, I'll let her tell the story, but I got some wonderful pictures of Big Grandma & Hunter so I thought I would share.

Does she look wonderful or what?

Is this the most angelic face you've ever seen?

First Day of School

I may be falling down on the job of showing what my children have been doing.  The boys had their first day of school last Monday. Hunter started Kindergarden and today started full days today. Hunter even got A Student for his classroom the first week due to his outstanding character, but I'll have him tell you about that on his own blog.

I miss my boys.

My kids are spending some time with Grandma & Grandpa. I think its wonderful and I'm getting stuff done, and I'm going to go workout and not have to worry about who is going to watch the kids.


I miss them!

Boys I hope you are having a great time, I miss you & I love you!

E will be in a Rock Band, I'm pretty sure.

We are driving in the car and Stevie Ray Vaughn comes on the radio.

E: "Mom, this is Pride & Joy"

Seriously, how many 7 year olds know who Stevie Ray Vaughn is?

Another Week with Big Grandma

We just spent a week in San Antonio.  We enjoyed Grandma & Papa, Big Grandma and we even got to see Uncle Durk.  It was great.  Here's the latest photo of the boys with Big Grandma.

Hey Grandma, the kids got a haircut.

Another trip to the ER

There is a picture of this, however I will spare the few readers of this blog any photos.  My baby kitty - Cagey, well he got caught in the soccer net today.  He was in there for several hours and the net cut off the circulation to his back legs.  While the kids and I were at Ethan's school carnival Mason found him.  He called the emergency vet and followed the instructions.  However when Cagey started to try to walk, he was dragging one foot pretty badly so off we went to the Kitty ER. 

No nerve damage, thank goodness, we got a couple of shots to make the swelling go down and we got some antibiotics due to him chewing on his foot and leg.  Pray for kitty!

How cute is this?

This is the art project that H2's class did for the Spring Carnival's Silent Auction. Each one of the kids did a self portrait and one of the Mom's put this together. Is this not just adorable. H2's self portrait is the 3rd one on the top row.

I wasn't really sure how to respond to this.

I'm going to New Zealand next week and I was talking to Hunter in the car about it.  

ME:  Hunter, are you going to miss me when I'm gone?

HUNTER:  Mom, I'm going to miss you so much I'm going to pee in my pants.

Updates - Hunter

This picture doesn't look that bad does it.  Well it was 2 hours in the ER.  Why you ask?  Hunter broke our neighbors sliding glass door with his head.  Yes, his head.

The doctor said he was extremely lucky.  No stitches were required either.  Mason is having me replace the sliding glass door in our house so this can't be repeated.

Updates - Ethan

Ethan went to the allergist yesterday.  Turns out no allergies - hmmmm.  We will try to treat him as having reflux and if that doesn't work we have to go the gastric route.

Dallas Arboretrum

Today, the boys and I went to the Dallas Arboretum.  The day started out so foggy, but cleared nicely and we spent the afternoon enjoying the sunny, clear 70 degree Texas day.  The boys took turns with the small digital camera.  Here are the results.

When it rains it pours.

E is now sick - throwing up & you-know what.  The doctor can't figure out what is wrong with Hunter - even after more testing and a chest x-ray.  All negative.  So he might cough up a lung at some point tonight.

WOOOOO HOOOO!  Two kids home sick tomorrow.  Talk about total fun and excitement.

At least we've stayed out of the ER for a while.  Although last night was close.

Something Viral

This is what the doctor told me was wrong with Hunter. 

Excuse me Doctor...  What is that suppose to mean?

I mean he's got this fever, he is coughing, has  more snot than anyone has a right to have, doesn't sleep well because of the coughing and won't eat.  You couldn't come up with something better than Something Viral.

HA! HA! My husband has the kids today!

I'm laughing because now Hunter has "The Croup" again. And so Mason has to dispense medicine and keep him from running around.

Also Mr. Big Shot Ethan had a sleep over last night and apparently was up until 2 AM. Daddy has to deal with a tired kid too.


Of course I am at work - but work is better than dealing with that. At least today.

Sick House!

Hunter has picked up a nasty little stomach virus.  EEEWWW!!  24 hours of Throw-up Duty.

I am so loving life.

San Antonio

So we went to San Antonio to see my parents & Big Grandma weekend before last.  It was a few days before Ethan's 7th birthday so we had our celebration down there.  Here is Hunter, Big Grandma, Grandma, Pa-Pa, Mason and of course the birthday boy.

Here are the two boys with their Big Grandma.

This was the drive back.  It was, well, not very scenic.  To the left there is actually a huge mall.  I guess the Goddess of Shopping was not on my side that day.

Dental Issues.

Ethan had a trip to the dentist today, after our early morning chair cracking conversation.  He got an expander put in his mouth.  I have to put a key in it and turn it every night.  I am totally not looking forward to it.  

He is having a little difficulty adjusting to it.  Granted it's only been in there since about 10 this morning, but he has an overabundance of saliva, due to the foreign object attached to his teeth.  He also has a slight problem saying most words.  His big fear is that his friends will laugh at him.

Where did this come from?

Ethan came into the bedroom this morning while I was getting dressed.

Ethan:  Mom, I cracked Dad's chair.

ME:  How did you do that?

Ethan:  With my farts.
