Wacky SNOW DAY Wednesday

HAPPY SNOW DAY!!! Well..sort up at 6am to check the news..Schools were OPEN...Got Ben ready, took him to school...schools were CLOSED. What a way to surprise him, though. We've played ourselves out and everyone's curled up w/hot chocolate watching TV. Ahhh...

On a different note - We're proud to announce another addition to our family. Here is "Marley." She is 6 weeks old and the kids just love her. Amazing how quickly a new kitten heals a broken heart.

Woeful Wednesday

Yesterday was a terrible, horrrible, no good, very bad day...

I was hurriedly leaving the garage to pick up all the kids from MDO and school and ran over our cat, Keiki, with the van. If you've ever had a pet that you and your children have adored, you can imagine my horror when I discovered what I had done. I called Cory in a screaming, blubbering mess and he came on home so he'd be here to help me tell the kids. When we got back, Cory was in the garage waiting for us and when the boys went to Keiki's bed looking for her, Cory said, "Boys, come inside we've gotta talk." They were completely confused and when we told them that she had run underneath the car and died, they both came unglued. Jake wailed and cried and Ben cried quietly. I just felt horrible feeling like I was the one who did this to them. I know..I know..accidents happen. Just hate that it happened to THIS cat. She loved these kids. She laid in bed w/Ben every night, then we'd put her out before we went to bed - such a cuddly, loving, affectionate cat. Keiki will be missed. Below is the last photo we took of her. She had begun teething - yes, she was only 4 months old - and had taken to playing with one of Ally's CareBears. We love you, Keiki!!

Wacky Wednesday

Here's the piano we've purchased from some friends at church. Let's hope this was money well-spent. So far all we've heard is "Indian Boy" and the C-scale. Oh well..It's only been 5 weeks.

Wacky Wednesday

Ok, so it's Thursday, here ya go anyway...

Doesn't this child LOOK like a hand full? She's started w/the "Terrible Two's" and she's still 3 months shy of being 2!! Yesterday, she hit Jake over the head with a car. When I got onto her and told her not to do that, she ran off crying. I didn't know WHERE she went...She went and put HERSELF in Time-Out. I guess one could call that PROGRESS, huh? Happy 2009!
