I realized a few things today:
1) that the fancy camera that Joe bought me two years ago ACTUALLY came with an instruction manual. I think that I might read it....and maybe take better pictures.

2)that there isn't an eating disorder that doesn't entail NOT eating or throwing up the yummy food that I ate....so, I just made TWO more pumpkin pies tonight...really, what else can you do??

3)I am SERIOUSLY giving Eli all your phone numbers...WATCH OUT!

4)I just have the three best boys EVER! (ok....four best boys ever!)

Chris went off to school today as usual (which means getting up at 5:30AM!)...YIKES...my poor bones! Joe gets up a little after 6, I hop back into bed after changing Isaac's diaper and starting his feeding pump (which he happily sleeps through). I hear Eli hop out of bed around 8...and I KNOW that's he's in the game room playing video games....but, I do not care...I sleep for another half hour before Isaac decides that we should get up.

Isaac had his community OT appointment today. He did great..as always...he lets her pull, push, tug...whatever she wants...and he just goes along with whatever.

Eli funny---very SWEET story of the day:
After leaving OT, we NEEDED McDonalds. So, Eli gives me his order...I place it in the drive thru...and reach into my purse. Uh oh....where's my wallet?? uh...at home on the couch! YIKES!! I told Eli that we'll need to pull up and tell the man that I don't have any money--I never carry cash...and when I said that, I reached in my purse and pulled out a $20!
Eli said, "mom...Jesus must have known that we needed something to eat....he put that money in your purse."
Just the look of amazement in his eyes....he thought that he had just witnessed a miracle.
priceless!

Chris...on the other hand...told me that we HAD to go to Home Depot to get supplies for a science project. So, we go. Come home. and there A LOT more to the project...that's due a lot sooner than Mr. Chris let on...urrghhh...so, I need to start his science project tomorrow AFTER I go BACK to Home Depot to get his supplies.
Really...I couldn't ask for a better teenager...(but, don't tell Chris I said that...I like the fear in his eyes when I give him "the look"!)

and Joe...his bum fell off weeks ago...he's still working a lot...and I love him for it.

oh...and I found the COOLEST website for gifts. Now...it's not cheap..just cool. I've put TONS of things in the shopping cart, but can't bring myself to buy it yet. Check it out here!
Now you'll know what kind of a DORK I am!!!

You DO have the best boys. They are just so sweet. Eli has such a sweet heart, and Chris is such a good kid, and Isaac is just the sweetest little peach.

Good luck with the science project! :)
