Hey topgun! I couldn't find my shades and had to borrow Ben's. I look ridiculous!
My friend Tammy playing with Gabe
I guess this witch wasn't scary either. When we got to Ben's office, our friend Jason Norton asked Laine who was prettier, the witches, or Mommy. Everyone had a good laugh when she chose the witches. I suppose I will try to grow some warts for her and make my face green if that's what she wants to wake up and see every morning.

That's me, the expert driver
The expert driver once again
Okay, not really! But it was better than this!! It is a good thing that Tiene is so smart and talented, I fear she won't be able to rely on golf, sorry Tiene!
Kristine and Jordan, awww.... Thanks again to Grams for watching this kids so we could go!

* You love to laugh, dance, and be innocently mischievous
* You are a GREAT eater! You have loved bananas but are now starting to love carrots or broccoli the best.
* You are still crawling, but love to tease us with a few steps now and again!
* You love to make other people happy, you love to get into a laughter fit with people
* You sing every once in a while, it is so cute!
* You throw the cutest little tantrums and kick and throw yourself. For now it is just really funny when you do it
* You are cautiously friendly
* You are a MAJOR scaredy cat!
* You are so sweet, but not cuddly
* You are sooooo cheerful! You usually wake up happy and then eat, play, and stay good until it is time for a nap. You are only every cranky if you are tired.

The other day I took the kids to the park. EVERY time we go to the park, sweetest Laine finds a little friend, sometimes older, sometimes younger or sometimes really close to the same age. Within 5 minutes, her and her little friend are running around holding hands. The last time the little girl as a 2 year old Mexican girl who barely spoke English! They were just darling. They were having the time of their lives together running around, playing, despite the fact that they had just met and won't continue to see each other again on a regular basis.

Ben will be relieved to know that he won't need to make good on the promise of getting a pet when we finally "settle" somewhere. He has been promising me a dog for years, but I guess we already have one, and his name is Gabe. This little puppydog crawls around at my feet all day, following me around like a little shadow. He has also started to ALWAYS have something he is dragging around in his mouth, it is such a crack-up.

This Boy really puts the food down, at this rate I think he will be a linebacker. But I had no idea he was capable of handling his first corn on the cob! I will post some post-feeding belly pics. He always looks about 8 months pregnant after eating (or as Uncle Noah says, he looks like the starving children of Africa with a swollen belly)
Grrrrr... stay away from my corn!
Got it just about clean!

Okay, although this is the 3rd home we have purchased, the last home we sold had tenants in when we sold it, so it was their job to keep it in pristine order. We still own the 2nd house, so this is really the first home we have had to do ALL of the work to sell. Trying to keep it clean, trying to get people here and see it, doing fliers and the whole bit. It is not just that you have to keep it clean, you have to keep every inch of it immaculately clean, including your closets, drawers, pantry, and refrigerator. I'm so over it already and it has only been a week and a half!
