Grammy Visits! t

But first... Here's our sweet Babers with her favorite new buddy, Snoopy! Nanny & Pappy gave him to her for her birthday and she loves to cuddle with him. Unfortunately, right after this picture, she was sick for a week and threw up all over him. Poor Snoopy. He's still drying out in the garage (yes - with throw up on him - does anyone else do things like that and not get back to them, or is it just us?).
We found out that Mom had never been to a hibachi (sp?) restaurant, so we decided to go to Miyabi's one night. What fun!! Noa and Ruthie loved the fire and we had a great chef (what are they called?) who did all kinds of tricks for us. I think Mom loved it too.

Mom was great about playing with the girls constantly. I had a little break for a few days! And the girls are still asking where Grammy's bed went (had one set up in Ruthie's room for her), so they definitely miss their Grammy!

On a weird side note. Look at all these blue pens I found in our junk drawer! Many of you may remember my post about Russ a few years back about how he has little "collections" of things without realizing it. I HATE these pens. I HATE THEM! He brings them home from his office and now they are barfing out of our drawers! They're going back tomorrow!
Other than that, the girls have been busy watching their Sweetpea Beauty DVD that my parents sent them. We watch it every day and know all the words! Ugh. Ruthie is close to walking - finally. She's been standing up by herself for a few seconds (then falling), so I'm hoping that she wants to walk really soon. We're going this Thursday for Baby #3's ultrasound. We really have no idea what we think the baby is. We change our minds every week - so it will be exciting to finally know, especially since all of my pregnant friends who are about a month or two behind me have already found out what they're having. Anyway... until then!

Hey! I just bought that sweet pea movie for my kids! Sounds like a good one if you watch it everyday! ;) Your Mom looks like she had a fun time! I bet she LOVED being with the girls. What a special treat!

Just throw that snoopy in the wash and it will be good as new......poor snoopy.

Hahaha - the famous blue pens! Bruce has to ration them for Russ at the church - and I had to tape a spoon to mine so it wouldn't grow legs and walk away. So funny!!

Meanwhile Bruce is asking himself, "why am I having to buy pens every other week?" You probably saved his office supply budget by sending them back! :)

So funny that everyone is commenting on the pens...that's what I came to comment on too! I LOVE those pens...do you not like them for writing or do you just not like them because they are multiplying in your house? Don't ever throw them away. Jenny & I will take them. :)

PS--You know the little word you have to type in before you post your comment? Guess what mine was?? CHICK!!

Jackie...you SO aren't the only one. I throw anything peed on/pooped on/thrown up on out in my garage too. I get to it when I get to it. It all gets cleaned eventually. Lol!

Just to clarify... I hate everything about the pens. I don't like how they write and I hate that they are all over the house! Russ took them back this morning. :)
