SO much to tell you about our weekend.

First...above is my newest little nephew...Jacob. We drove up to Cedar City on Saturday morning and spent the day with my sister Christy. I rocked the new babydoll...and we all had a birthday party for my other nephew Luke. ALL the boys had a blast, because Mandy drove up too...Here was the kid line up:
Jacob--newbie
Catherine--almost 2 year old
Isaac--2 1/2
Meghan--almost 3
Luke--almost 5
Seth--7
Kenneth--7
Eli--7
Chris--15

oh...that's WAY too many kids!

On the way home...we had TOTAL DRAMA. Follow me now...and don't pee in your pants (I'll wait while you go pee)....

ok...we're driving home (3 hour drive). We stop in St. George to get gas. I was suppose to start Isaac's feeding pump...but, didn't. I ran into pee. I asked Chris and Eli if they needed to pee...they didn't. I was quick in and out and back on the road.
NOW...it's dark outside and we're in the middle of NO WHERE. I suddenly remember that Isaac NEEDS to eat and I don't want to stop on the side of the road in the dark. So, driving about 80mph, I have to explain to Chris how to hook up the extension to Isaac's belly and then hook the pump hose to the extension hose, then how to check the settings on the pump...and thank goodness, I had already put the milk in the bag.
SUCCESS...after all the lights on in the car, a little swirving, a little stressful moments...Isaac was eating.
whew.....
THEN, about 30 minutes later, Eli just starts screaming that he has to PEE! WHAT?? We're STILL in the dark in the middle of NO WHERE and I AM NOT pulling over on the side of the road in the dark! I ask Eli to wait 30 more minutes until we reach the next town. Now, he's crying and yelling that he can't hold it he's going to PEE IN HIS PANTS!
ahhhh!!! So, Chris hops from the front seat to the back seat, trying to unscrew a water bottle for Eli to pee in. Eli's crying, Chris is yelling at him not to pee on him, Eli is trying to keep it in the bottle (but, does miss a little)...oh my gosh! seriously.
Finally, the cap is put on the water bottle, Eli falls asleep from the stress of it all, and Chris is back in the front seat just chatting with me.
whew....
BUT...that's NOT the end of our road trip.
We get 2 miles from home and I stop at a RedBox to return our movies. When I pull up, Eli jumps up and screams, "I have to pee!". I look back at him, and he's a mess (pee on him). I tell him that he is NOT going in the store like that and we'll be home in 5 mintues. He tells me that he can't wait. He then rolls over, and sits on his juice box and squirts juice EVERYWHERE...which, makes Chris start screaming because he thinks Eli just peed on him....Eli's screaming because he's not sure what happened (did he just pee), I'm sitting in the drivers seat just wishing all the screaming would stop, Chris would get out with the movies, Eli would fully wake up and realize he isn't peeing but he IS making a mess...and we'd get home already.

NOW....we are home.

So now...let's talk about our Sunday.
First...you should know that Mandy took Eli to see Toy Story last week...and he's in LOVE with that movie all over again. We HAD to buy a doll this weekend. He really thinks that Woody is alive (and of course, I'm feeding it). He thinks his eyes are moving...he's moving his arms. He keeps leaving the room and running back in to see if Woody moved. So now...it's Sunday. He takes Woody to church. and THIS is what is does all morning to Chris:

That would be Woody saying "L" for loser to Chris.
yep...that's how church went for us.

ok...now it's after church. Joe and Chris go off to choir practice at 1:30, Eli's playing games and I take a NAP with Isaac (yeah for me). I get up at 5:00 and bring Isaac downstairs. I make up his feeds and meds...and he's still asleep. So, I just hook him up and feed him.
He doesn't wake up until 9:00pm! and...the lights are on, tv on, kids in and out, me trying to wake him. I'm worried. His sats are 94-95 (so, not too low), he's NOT on any extra meds. He's awake now (at 10:30 crawling around), but also just did a huge wretching episode (but, didn't throw up).
I HOPE he's not coming down with something...but, he's been off antibiotics for a week...so, it wouldn't surprise me.

Whew! What a weekend . . . but SO funny, I could see it all happening in my mind as you're driving down the road. Tell Chris that we think "He's Awesome"!
Hope Isaac stays well for you this week (fingers crossed).
Jacob is adorable, thanks for posting his cute little picture for us. I'll bet Christy was happy to see ALL of her little neices and nephews.

The boys in the van story cracked me up! I can just picture it all, through tiredness and everything. :)

I hope Mr. Isaac isn't brewing up anything new. Maybe he just decided he needs his beauty rest. Maybe the commotion in the van wore him out!

Your new little nephew is adorable! Have a healthy Monday! xo

Oh Kathy,

I'm just glad you all made it home in one piece! ha! You need your own TV show....and you wouldn't even have to send a kid up in a balloon to get it, I bet! :)

You explaining to Chris how to hook Isaac up sounded soooo much like me trying to explain it to Kristen! (Good job, Chris, for taking care of it....now Mom can count on you at home, too, right???? Ha.)

Poor Eli....when you have to go, you have to go! The bottle trick didn't work for Donnie either....he missed and hit my purse once.

And look at that sweet boy sleeping away....I hope he was just tired from the trip and that he isn't getting sick.

I have to tell you something...seeing Woody with the "loser" sign made me crack up. This isn't something I've mentioned on Emma's site, but for a while now....little Miss Emma has been putting her hand to her head (she can't make an "L," though) and saying, "Lou, Lou!" Then she laughs and laughs (even covers her mouth with her hand while she's laughing).....she's telling us we're LOSERS!!! (Thank you, Disney Channel!) :)

Well, congrats on your new nephew! He's just precious!

Take care and give those funny boys a big hug from us!

Lots of Love,

Wendy (& Emma, too!)
