I LOVE my Purple Cup

Joe comes in every night from work...and sits on the couch...with his tv tray in front of him...and drinks from a purple cup. Isaac lOVES this cup. I don't know why. BUT...if he sees it....he'll start crawling as fast as he can from the other side of the room just to try and get it.

NOW...he does NOT drink from a cup...any cup...NOT EVEN the purple cup. He just loves it.
Watch him and his reaction to this cup.
You'll see how he screams when he's mad, do the happy dance when he's happy, and push Joe's arms out of the way when he tries to get the cup.


ahh....and would you like an update on us?
  • Chris has a staph infection on his arm from wrestling. Therefore, he's contagious, so he can't wrestle for a week until his infection is under control.
  • Eli is, as normal, perfect in every way. He FINALLY started the gifted program here and he's excitedly working on his War of 1812 project.
  • Joe is alive. Sometimes he gets on my nerves...sometimes he doesn't...but, I still love him regardless of which nerve he gets on daily.
  • Katie pooped in my house this week. I am so mad at that stinkin' dog. (I mean, she's so small that her poops are like rabbit poops..but, still...it's POOP!)
  • I am swamped! SO much paperwork to do, to be done, past due! AHHH! I STILL think I need an assistant.
In case you were wondering...it's raining.
and ever.

My love Muffins

Aren't they just the cutest??

Today was CRAZY...as usual. Chris had a wrestling match about an hour away....so, he rides the bus with the team...the little guys and I start driving out (after packing ALL of the things that we'll need to be out of the house for a few hours)...don't EVEN ask what all I have to pack.

We get about 15 minutes from the school...and Chris calls to tell me that there isn't a wrestler for his weight division...so, he doesn't wrestle tonight.
do I turn around?
NO...I keep going..to support Chris and his team.
While wrestling with my piglet Isaac and watching Eli spill popcorn, drink, his ipod...
hearing dad's curse the ref for making bad calls..
while my bum is numb from sitting on the hard bleachers...
while having to drive BACK home at 9:00pm at night for another HOUR to get home...
(and you can't speed here or they'll catch you!)

But...we made it home,
Chris won by forfeit,
Eli was able to tell me about EVERY SINGLE DETAIL of his day because we were in the car so long...
and Isaac was able to watch TWO HOURS of Yo Gabba Gabba in the car....

all is well in Rainy Aberdeen.

Holiday ReCap

Well...I've just been busy.
and that's all I have to say about that.

BUT...I missed sharing our holidays with you. I hope you all had a great holiday...

We hung our stockings...
(ok...this was the picture AFTER Santa filled them)

I think Santa was quite happy with the boys.
look at them....
we didn't go CRAZY with too many presents this year..
and it was one of my favorites days of all time.
Isaac STILL doesn't care to open a present.
(gosh...I can't wait until he does!)
BUT...he did finally pull an ornament off the tree and break it!
We were SO happy for him...we were doing our
Happy cheer! yeah for Isaac!
For New Year's...Chris went bowling with his wrestling team...Joe slept on the couch, Isaac slept on the floor beside Joe, and Eli and I watch The Tooth Fairy.
The fireworks started going off...
I picked up Chris...
put the boys to bed...
and woke up Joe and put him to bed.
Happy New Year!
(we're getting SO old!)

Life in small town Washington is going alright. I just don't like the rain...when it's cold...coming at you sideways.
other than that...
we're doing great. Eli got in the gifted and talented program here (FINALLY...after weeks of requesting records for Vegas). His first day is tomorrow...he's picked out his clothes, instructed me to wake him up early...whew!
Chris has a wrestling match tomorrow...
we're STILL so stinkin' busy.
I need a Beach, a strawberry non-alcoholic drink, and a nanny-nurse-housekeeper....and all will be well in my world.
(a girl can dream)

OH...and I'm entering to win the HGTV house giveaway this year. I was certain the first year they did it that i'd win (who watched that show WAY back then? no one...but ME!)
