Check it out!

OK, so I am ashamed to say I have a new obsession. Aunt Jenn told me about a blog called "Bloggy Giveaways" http://www.donttrythisathome.typepad.com/bloggy_giveaways/ that gives away products every day . I have been going there for a few weeks now to check out what's new to win. This past Monday, I went to the blog and guess what I came across? A HUGE "Bloggy carnival" where well over 1000 people have giveaways for the week (and tons of them do giveaways everyday too!). I have been spending the … [Continue reading]

Little man of mischief

This morning I was doing school in the dining room with Logan and Brooke. Erik usually runs around the house doing various things during the time we do school. Usually he is in Brooke or Logan's room playing with their toys. We got caught up learning and talking about turtles (this week's lesson) and I suddenly realized I wasn't hearing any noise from Erik. Hhhmmmmm.... Where was he?? I checked the kids' rooms, my room, my closet... Nope. Next stop, the living room. This is what I … [Continue reading]

Erik’s latest accomplishment

OK, so Erik is pretty much the smartest baby ever. Keep in mind he is just almost 14 months old.We've been putting him on the potty before we put him in the bath or shower for a while now. He usually always goes, and it has been clear to me lately that he understands and knows what he is doing. I'll tell him to go potty and his face gets serious and you can tell he is trying to go.Well, today I was in our bathroom doing my hair, and he came in. He started playing with the toilet seat, so I got … [Continue reading]

Teeth update

So, Erik cut another bottom tooth on Friday the 10th and another top tooth today! 2 more down, 2 more to go... Well, this round anyway. Hopefully his other teeth will decide to wait a while before they're ready! Poor kid!Oh yeah, and on top of the teeth coming in, this morning he fell and put one of his bottom teeth through his tongue!! Yep, all the way through! It went through at an angle, so it wasn't top to bottom... More middle front to top. But it bled and bled and he wasn't happy, of … [Continue reading]

Prayer request

I'd like to ask you all to keep Gary (and Isaac Ferrier) in your prayers. Work has been extremely slow. Recently they changed the way they pay the mechanics. They were getting paid hourly. Now they're on flat rate...If there's no work in the shop, you don't get paid. There have been many days in these last 6 weeks that the guys have sat around all day waiting for work to come in the shop so they could get some hours on their paycheck. Some guys have had as little as 40 hours on an 80 hour … [Continue reading]

Cutting teeth=Misery!

So for quite a few weeks now, Erik has been grumpy, clingy, fussy, cranky... Any and every adjective associated with cutting teeth! However, seeing as how Logan and Brooke were never like this when cutting teeth (We didn't even know Logan had cut his first 2 until he bit my finger one day!), we were pretty confused as to what his deal was. I kept blaming it on his lack of sleep, or his brother and sister constantly bothering him or something of the sort.He cut his first 2 bottom teeth when he … [Continue reading]
