Man I've been a blogging slacker lately.
We had a great Christmas with a house full of people. We've been hanging out with friends. Having some great times. Not much else to report. I don't even have any Christmas poop stories.
Maybe I'll have more to report tomorrow after I run a race tonight and go to the hockey game. Go Flames! Until then I'll leave you with some pictures.

Okay so no pictures right now. I can't seem to get it to work. I'll try again later.

Twas the week before Christmas

I was thinking about this poem and thought I would re-create it but it is pretty long and really I just don't have the time to sit and do it. So I thought I would start it off and hopefully we'll have people joining in with their comments. The kids are starting to get very excited and wired so you can probably see where I was intending it to go.

Twas the week before Christmas
and all through the house,
all the creatures were stirring, but hope there's no mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
in hopes that Silly Santa soon would be there; (we've been practicing "s" words with Quinks hence the silly santa)
The Lobbsters were jumping on top of their beds
While visions of candy canes danced in their heads;

And that's as far as I've gotten. I'm looking forward to seeing the creativity from all you blog readers. This could be fun.

Come on grow

Today was a weight check up for Spencer. I thought for sure he was going to be at least 20 pounds. Especially with the good weight gain he had at the end of October. No such luck. He is 18 and half pounds. We still need to measure his length. He still not on the charts but our Doctor seems to think that is where he will stay. I thought Quinks was a lightweight. Maybe he'll be the super tall kid. OKay I know crazy thought but one can dream right? So I guess now on top of shoving food at him he'll have to start eating sticks of butter. :)

Another change

I figured with the snow we got and the freezing cold weather that came with it, the current background is appropriate.

I was reminded at my eye appointment this week about what Quinten said about my eye pictures. The doc said he hasn't forgotten it and it keeps him laughing. I think the kid is obssesed with boobs, already.

Anyway I know sometimes we all need a little laugh. And if that is you today think about what Quinten said and imagine how embarrased I was.

Have a great, hopefully not too cold, Monday.

Been awhile

I guess it is that time again. Posting time. I got my braces off on Friday and now am the proud owner of 2 retainers. So if you call don't be surprised when I sound funny.
I feels so good to have them off. And no glasses, well most of the time. I think the left contact isn't quite right. But it has only been a week so I am still getting used to them again.
Anyway pictures to follow. I've kind of been a slacker on those.

Oh and the poop monster keeps striking! The magic tape needs to be found.

Poop Monster #2

It must be in our genes for our kids, well mostly the boys, to take off their diapers. Spencer has spent the last couple of days in a sleeper so that I don't have to keep cleaning his bedding. Seriously what is the fascination. And it's not only taking the diaper off but playing with the poop. I might have to pull out my roll of preventative measure. :)

I'm well on my way to looking like an adult again. I got contacts again yesterday. Trying to get used to them. I think the left eye might be a little off but the instruction sheet did say that things won't look as clear as with glasses. At least for a bit. And soon the braces will be off too. It's been 2 and half years since I got them on. It will be a great feeling to have them off. I have a whole list of things I want to eat when they come off. Eat a whole apple, not cut up, chew real bubble gum, eat a sub type sandwich, and so goes the list.
Anyway hope everyone is having a great day!
