Not sure this is appropriate...



It started out like this....
And then went to this...


Then I of course jumped in and then there wasn't anyone to take the picture.

Needless to say our Dad is home FINALLY! We are busy and stressed but trying not to take life to seriously. We move next week! It has come so fast! We almost had our house sold but then the buyer's home sale fell through. Boo. We are happy and healthy and have so much to be thankful for though, and we just want to enjoy the holiday season and focus on the more important things! Cheers to our friends and family, we love you so much!

I'm extremely excited for you guys! Another adventure over seas, I'm jealous. I think you've got the right idea, trying not to stress about your house and enjoy your last week there.

I love reading your blog! You are my funny friend Nat, you keep me laughing even if its at your misfortunes! Be sure to post a bunch of pictures when you get to Australia.

Funny picture!! Glad Ben is home and that you have some help since you are moving next week. So you are flying back to Cali for Christmas? Wow that is a lot of traveling. Good luck!!

Nick & Nicole said...

Welcome home Ben! Your family has missed you dearly I am sure. Good luck over the next few weeks and hope everything works out for you. I know this is so frustrating. It will all be over soon!

Bummer about your house. Sorry. This picture is hilarious. Does Ben know you posted it?! I'm sad we couldn't get together before you leave but you better keep in touch!! Hopefully we can rendezvous at Christine's wedding!

I just had the most hilarious blast from the past. I was making toffee and listening to Brian Ferry's "Dance Away the Heartache." I am picturing you slaving over the stove, sleaves of your clean sweatshirt pushed up, and by clean I mean inside out so that the dirty side isn't showing. You would be barking orders at Katie and I to get you fresh ice water or a stool to sit on or to butter a pan, when we weren't too enthusiastic about that you would say, "do you want toffee, then you better help." Anyways, I made your toffee today. I have made it before, but something wasn't quite right with it today. It is still delicious. I wanted to post this under your toffee post on Hot Garlic, but I was afraid it would have been too long ago and you wouldn't get it.

Umm does Ben know you posted this?
I feel uncomfortable.

Allison & Noah Riley said...

Yay for having your sweetie home! Let us know what we can do to help over the next week... if we can take the kids off your hands for an evening, we'd be happy to!

Brittany said...

Okay, I'm a little uncomfortable with the picture, but glad that your hubby is home. I was cracking up reading about all of your adventures while Ben was gone. You sure do have your hands full right now. Good luck with everything and let me know how I can help!!

I am just glad that there were bubbles. :) You would be amazed at how many times this happens with our little family in the shower. :) Memories. PLEASE send me your new addy when you move to Australia!

Since everyone is wondering YES Ben knows I posted this! Not sure if HE is uncomfortable, sorry for all to all of you!

Jill said...

These pictures do not make me uncomfortable, but I'm glad Ben knows you posted this and that he is okay with it. If I posted a picture like this of Brandon, he would absolutely KILL me...to put it mildly!!!!

Patrick Family said...

this is funny, I am Jodan's sister by the way, yes I read your blog, hope thats not weird. I was laughing because I put a video up on my blog of my two boys (husband not included) singing in the bath, and my husband was so mad at me,I think its great and funny!

Jenny or sometimes Bozo said...

Ya, I'm not sure if this is "appropriate" but it made me laugh.

Jocee Bergeson said...

OH PLEEAAASSEEE, you guys. This is not AT ALL inappropriate. This is first of all, funny, and second of all, real life. Now if Natalie had posted a pic of Ben naked, I could see your point. But he was in the stinkin' bath tub w/ his KIDS and you couldn't see a dang thing....how do you know he didn't even have a swimsuit on anyway!?! Some of you are a bit NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Palmers said...

Nat, i just had to comment b/c I'm laughing so hard. Yes, Steve would kill me if I posted a pic of him and and the kids in the shower. He just recently got mad at me for posting about my poopy day. He was embarrassed that some of him friends might read it. :)

I love shower/bath pictures they are so sweet and worth having. Ben's a good Dad, and cute with your kids. Good luck finding renters. Sorry about the dog pee, not funny that I can relate to that... gross.
