WE DO!!!!!!!!! That's right me and our four little ones have all been sick this entire week! We all have colds, and not just little sniffles colds, no I mean the whole head feeling like it is going to explode, fevers, constantly runny noses, coughs, possible ear infections, and I could go on but I will spare you all. I have been in a fog this whole week but I feel like maybe I am finally coming out of it today a little bit. Sorry there will be no pictures today because I have had no time to download them. I will update soon with pictures, I have some great ones for instance yesterday Gage fell asleep in his highchair! I think that was a first. It was so cute, he was so tired and did not feel good at all.

On a much happier and joyful note, today is our 5TH ANNIVERSARY!!! I am the luckiest woman on the earth to be married to the most wonderful man in this world!!! (That was an interesting sentence, okay so the fog isn't completely gone yet:). Anyway, to my wonderful husband Tim, I love you with all my heart and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with you!! We are going away this weekend and leaving all four little ones with their grandparents. I feel sort of guilty and yet I am so very excited!! I get to SLEEP!!!!!! How boring huh!?!? To me that right now is the best gift I could ever get! Hope you all have a great weekend, I know I will!!! :)

Big Hole...

No, we have not fallen off the face of the earth!! :) We have had a very busy month! There is so much to blog about but obviously it will have to come a little at a time. A couple of weeks ago we had a guy come and fill a huge cistern in our backyard. The cistern was covered by a huge cement slab but was starting to crack and there was a small opening with a lid that the older boys could easily move. You can tell by the pictures it is not something we wanted our children to fall into. The cistern was about 9 feet deep and had about 3 feet of water sitting in the bottom. It took them about 4-5 hours to complete the job. My boys thought it was grand fun to watch the backhoe and the dump truck. The guy that did it said that the boys kept him entertained. :)
We were looking at a poor little frog trying to climb up the wall while they were getting the water drained out. After they started filling the whole with dirt, Gage asked, with great concern, where the frog was. The man just told him that he went bye-bye. Didn't quite have the heart to tell him the frog was buried alive!!
Anyway, now our backyard is a huge mess because the ground was pretty soft when they drove the backhoe and dump truck through it. We have had so much rain we haven't had much of a chance to do anything about it yet but hopefully soon we will get it back to normal. I am just very thankful I don't have to worry about my kids falling down in that hole anymore.
