This picture makes me laugh....

My blond haired beauty....

Jack fooled all of us. Somehow he faked a fever so that he could spend the week in Huntsville doing fun things like this....

Quiet Weekend

We had a nice quiet weekend. Jason and Holden's weekend began Friday morning. Jack caught Holden's fever, today. We shipped him off to Huntsville for a few days.

Holden loves Elmo. When I say "Elmo", he runs to the computer and says, "Melmo". It is cute.

Today's excuse...

"Mommy, did you see those fingers in my mouth? They are invisible fingers."

Congratulations to Uncle James, Aunt Jennifer, and Will! Even though Atlanta has been their home for awhile, they decided to make it official and buy a home. They spent last weekend, along with Kiki, Gdad, Uncle David, and Aunt Sarah moving.

While my entire family worked hard, I played hard. I spent the weekend in Nashville. I went with Aunt Jennifer (Lee) and her friends to celebrate her upcoming marriage. I haven not been on a girls trip, since before I got pregnant with Holden. We had a great time.

I am so happy to have my boys home. When I picked them up from daycare, it was the first time I had seen the since Friday.

Jack just brought me his blanket and said, "Do you know what this says?" I thought he was talking about the monogrammed name and assumed he was going to tell me "Jack".

Well, he points at each letter and says, "It says, Jack's blanket that you suck your fingers with. That's what it says."

Can you believe it?

Holden has been off of antibiotics for a few days and the thick, runny nose has returned. Frustrating.

For some reason, I feel the need to preface this video by saying that it wasn't a typical dinner. Usually, Jack is fully dressed. On occasion, when he uses the restroom, he wants clean underwear. If it is late, then I just put a pull-up on him. And, it was a little late, so Holden and I had already eaten. This video catches Jack saying his school blessing. It is adorable.

In case you haven't heard, we made our first trip to the Children's Hospital emergency room, last night. Holden cut his finger on a can. The after hours clinic wouldn't see him because they can't put stitches on fingers. They decided to not use a stitch, but did use a little glue. The cut was typical, but it wouldn't stop bleeding. If it was one of us, we would have kept pressure on it until the bleeding stopped. Well, a 1 year old doesn't understand that. It was a battle in the hospital room (we waited an hour for a 15 second application of glue) to keep a bandage on his finger. He would fuss and fidget and, if we let him down, he would rip off the bandage and blood would be everywhere. We brought some medical tape with us and Jason kept wrapping it with tape, but he kept pulling it off.

Spring Break

This has been the quietest Spring Break that I have had, in awhile. I am finally feeling better (I think) and ready to accomplish some things. Yesterday, I ran all of my errands, so I could spend the rest of the week cleaning out toys and studying. I have two classes left, until graduation!

I took the following picture, this morning. When I look at my family, I think about how thankful I am. The disaster, in Japan, is breaking my heart. I look at my own children and pray for the 14 month old babies who were helpless, during the earthquake and tsunami, and the 3 year old children who didn't understand what was happening. It makes me sad.

Happy 6 years!

Today is our anniversary. I wanted to dig up some old pictures of us, but I have been really sick. Instead, I'll let you look at this precious child....

Steam Mop

Now, if only Jack could teach Jason how to use the steam mop.

Cold Snap

Despite how cold it was, today, we made it outside for some playtime. We had such a wonderful, quiet weekend. With the exception of a trip to the store and a haircut, we stayed closed to home. I just can't seem to shake this sinus stuff and Jason's back is giving him problems.

I will be surprised if Holden never gets run over by that golf cart.

I was not happy about this.

1. Jack's teacher told me, today, that all of the girls have a "crush" on him. She said it was mostly the older girls in the class next door. They always want to go talk to Jack. And, one girl told someone to move because SHE sits next to Jack. His teacher said it was like a mini soap opera.

2. Last night, I went in to check on Jack after Jason had put him to bed. He was still awake and I said, "give me kiss". Then he said, "and a hug.... and a high five".

3. Jack asked me who was the teacher at my school. I told him that I was a teacher. He said, "You are not a teacher. You are a mommy. Miss Katie is a teacher."

4. "Coach" Larry always give the boys high-fives, at daycare. Well, now Holden thinks he is supposed to give all of the employees high-fives. When I sign him in, he reaches across the reception desk to high-five all of the people in the front office.

A nightly occurrence

Our sunrises are just as pretty. And, here is my sweet Holden....
