Sky has a shiner! :-(

Poor little Sky man. (Sigh)

Sky was playing today with Uncle Cam, having guy time and playing Power Rangers. He went to do a lunge/air/power ranger-style jump at Cameron...and went straight past his uncle, into the wall and adjoining windowsill.

This is the result. Poor little Power Ranger. On the upside, "Chicks Dig Scars" (Right?)! Wonder what it'll look like in the morning...

We have HEAT!!!

Yay! The heat pump works again. We are a comfy 70 degrees!

Snow Day!!!

We woke up this morning to snow! Yay! Well, actually we woke up to the sound of a car accident. But it was caused by the snow, I'm assuming, so thats pretty much the same thing, right?

I'm still going to send Sky to pre-school. Although Gresham-Barlow schools are closed, I don't see Sky's school on the closure list. I think since they are a daycare center, they try to stay open. I think Sky would love to go to school and play in the snow with his friends. Then I'll take pics of the kids in the snow when he gets home.

The dog went out for her morning pee and just stopped cold as soon as she set foot outside. Then she had to spend 10 minutes sniffing the entire backyard. She isn't too sure what all this white stuff is!

Hey, one more thing: I don't have many e-mail addresses. So can someone forward the link to this blog to whoever they think would want it? Thanks!

I'm sure this will all be funny in 10 years...

But right NOW, this is so NOT funny!

Skyler woke me up at 6:30 today (WAY earlier than normal). Apparently he woke Ash up at 5am! (Sorry about that, Ashley!) We made it through the morning without going too crazy. And then all toddlerhood broke loose...

I had the nerve to go change my clothes. How dare I want to get out of pajama pants, huh? Well...Alex took the opportunity to check out something he's been fascinated with...the toilet. He decided to put some toilet paper in the toilet. And then a little more. Then more. And get the idea. Then, after deciding he had used enough TP, Alex decided to flush. And held down the handle until the whole thing was backed up to the point of overflowing. At this point, Sky decided to fill me in on the adventure. I came rushing in the bathroom to find toilet water all over the floor and two little boys looking at me like, somehow, I should know what to do. AHHHH!!! I turned off the water, plunged the toilet, wiped up the floor, and turned the water back on...but nothing happened. And hour later, nothing has happened STILL. So, I guess the toilet is broken.

While I was cleaning up the toilet mess, I kicked the boys out of the bathroom. Seems reasonable, right? Well, apparently Alex felt so bad that he caused so much trouble that he decided to do the dishes for me. Nice, right? Wrong. He opened up the dishwasher (which was clean and waiting to be unloaded), got into the dish soap- and proceeded to scoop so much soap into the dishwasher that a good portion of the door was covered in dish soap.

So I scoop the kids up. Put them in the car and go to mail a letter (i.e. get them out so they can't trash anything else). I take a few minutes, cool off, and come home all inspired to turn this into a positive. So I come in, get my beloved Dyson, and bein to vaccum the soap out of the dishwasher. Within a minute I see an ant. Then another. And another...Ants have taken over my vaccum cleaner!!!

I'm sure that some day I will laugh at how incredibly insane a day can be. I'm sure that I'll think it is funny that SO much trouble could come about in the course of a quiet afternoon at home. However, right now- I do NOT think this is funny!!!

Ok, I'm off to go battle ants, fix toilets, mop a bathroom floor, and pray that Dusty doesn't get stuck at work late tonight. What a day. (And it isn't even 4PM!!!)

Sunday, January 27th!

Skyler recently got signed up for Gresham Little League!!! He will be in the T-ball division on the National League. He's a little upset that he can't go straight to the Chicago Cubs, but we think he'll really enjoy it. Alex is trying SOOOO hard to talk! If you wanna hear something funny, call my cell phone! Alex and I always race for the phone when it rings, and if he wins- you'll probably hear "HA!". Dusty is so busy working this weekend since the car show has him there open to close every day! Ashley came up to visit for a night and it was SO fun to see her!

Brianna, Dusty, Skyler, Alex and Georgia in crazyland!

Hi Everyone! Thanks for visiting our blog. Guess there isn't really a reason for us to have a blog really. I (Brianna) just thought Dad's was cool, and so I made one, too!

So anyhow, I'll try to keep updated pics of the kids on here! Thanks for visiting!
