Missing my man

While Zack is spending the week in Hawaii, I have been thinking of some of my favorite things about him. One of my favorite is when I hear him tackle one of the boys, grab up their bare foot, and with hand poised to pop their little toes, he'll shout, "Pick a letter between question mark and 9." (or he'll pop them) They'll squeal and yell, "Boat!" hoping they're right. Zack then hollers, "Wrong - it was Jupiter!"


Oh, how I love him!

Baby Steps

Today, I ate.........leftovers!

This is really hard for me to do and I have no idea why. However, in order to try to save some money, I am trying to not let things go to waste. Last night for dinner I made low fat Chicken Tortilla soup. It was so yummy. It was even better today since all of the flavors had more time to marry. Anyway, I am so proud of myself!

As a side note, it sickens me that on those House Hunting shows, people buy 4,000 sq. foot homes to make sure that their three dogs have enough space inside and out. What a slap in the face.

Remember when...

Remember when you'd want a cheap dinner out so you'd take the family to Chuck-O-Rama? Well, gone are the good ol' days.

We went a few weeks back and it cost us $60.00!!! Emily was free, too! What a rip-off. It really bothered us, so we weren't upset in the slightest when Mikey dropped a full plate of food on the ground. Well, maybe we were a little embarrassed since it was really loud when it shattered. Then we made sure that everyone stuffed themselves to the gills to justify spending that much. Not a very fun time at all. So, I guess Chuck-O-Rama gets to be put on the "Never Again" list. Too bad.

Good job, Mikey.

I get emotional just thinking about it!!! Fall and winter are coming!!!

Last get-a-way of the summer

We were blessed to have the opportunity to stay with Zack's parents up at their cabin for the extended weekend. We had a great time visiting with our family. The boys always love time with their cousins. I've hurt my back and the house needs some attention so I'll make it quick.

Emily watching Caillou on our MP3 player. Whatever stops her screaming. Sheesh!

Mikey and Zachary on a hike with cousins Katie and Annie, Grandma and dad. They were "lucky" enough to find a half buried deer carcass. They dug most of it up and reconstructed the animal. Yummy.

Uncle Lincoln pulling Scotty, Little Lincoln, and Will for a ride.

The cousins trying to trick the hummingbirds into drinking from Mikey's cup. Mikey does this for hours at a time. Literally. He prefers doing this to riding the ATVs.

Scotty's new look. The dry air maybe?

The kids at the "lake".
