New look...

Look at that handsome Eli!
He decided that he wanted to wash my van on Saturday...

and he did a great job.
(thank goodness it rained yesterday and washed away all
the soap spots~)
This is Isaac' playroom now. TWO televisions.
and..they BOTH need to be on at all times or he screams
like you're hurting him.
I'm not sure how we're going to break him of this horrible
habit.
anyone??
NO..the hamster was NOT playing in his head...
this is just Isaac's lovely bedhead!
and this is what he thinks about that...


You'd think I was bored or something...
NOPE...just spicing it up a bit! What do you think??

Isaac has been sleepless in Vegas for the last three nights again. I did notice some discharge coming from his left ear on Saturday night, and have been putting antibiotic drops in it. BUT...he sure is a better sleeper if he's snuggled up beside me at night. Is it time for me to give in...kick Joe to the couch, and just have my boys in bed with me? (because, Eli has been at the foot of my bed for the last TWO nights). OR...maybe we should buy another king size bed and push them together...room for ALL of us in one BIG OLE' FAT BED?

(can I just add..It's 10:00pm and Eli just came downstairs crying because his legs hurt).

Really??

When will I EVER GET ANY SLEEP??

By the time Eli gets over his growing pains, Isaac stops screaming at night...Chris will be married and have kids and the darn grandkids will be over here screaming. I hope I lose my hearing soon.
that's all i have to say about that.

It's just been another crazy day in Vegas...would you expect anything less from us??

Tomorrow, Chris will be exactly 15 1/2...that means that he wants to go to the DMV and try to get his permit...EXCEPT, I paid for an online practice test...and he can't pass it yet. BUT...somehow, he thinks that he's ready...and so, after school tomorrow...we just might venture out to the DMV...where this mom will wait hours and hours for her son to take the permit test (and she too might renew her expired license...while she's there). AND...if, by some crazy chance....her son passes the test...he will NOT drive her home.

that too is all i have to say about that.

wish us luck!

Kathy . . . We love the new design of your blog! What a crazy busy house you have - would you believe that "these are the fun years." Now there are other phases yet to come, but this kind of fun has to be enjoyed "in the moment" and we miss it.
We Can hardly believe Chris is old enough to get his permit(?) Yikes!
Isaacs playroom is awesome - don't worry about his TV habit, as his interest grows in other things, he'll give it up now and then for something better OR maybe he'll just carry a small portable with earphones around in a few yrs and learn to do it all while watching his beloved shows. Love you guys.

Good luck, Chris!

I hope your boys allow you to get some sleep very soon, Mama!

I LOVE Isaac having to watch two tvs. Silly boy. I can't wait until he gets to meet his bud Elijah. :)

Did I tell you that this:
http://www.amazon.com/Intex-Deluxe-Pillow-Rising-Comfort/dp/B00177BQIU/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1268145440&sr=8-4
is where Evan is sleeping now. I got rid of my nightstand and it is pushed up all the way to the bed on my side. This was our only hope of not having an Ozzie & Harriet sleeping arrangements. So far so good. If he wakes up though and Eric is gone for work he climbs right up.

Good design Kat!

Well, aren't you fancy schmancy??

I like the new design.

A little TV never hurt anyone. Tell Eli that my car is pretty dirty if he wants to take a trip to Texas.

Good luck Chris!!
