Only one disaster

Image
It could have been much worse, obviously.
However, this morning as Téa was climbing up the bed to be changed (I taught her to do this because of my back)....                     
*This picture was taken the day before* I set down my "green drink"...the same one I have every morning before breakfast... but a few moments later I couldn't find it. 
Where did it go?  I thought for sure I had brought it with me into the playroom.

Then I noticed something suspicious about Téa.  Why did she have a green on her fingers?
(I promise she is not stressed.  This is her natural worried look.)
So I whirled my head all around the room, looking for the cup filled with green.  It was no where.  So then I go into all the rooms we had been in that morning, thinking that perhaps I had set it down elsewhere.  I kept going room to room, and back again.  This made no sense because my eyes are almost always on her, except for literally seconds at a time...maybe when I'm blinking...okay I'm…

Family Camp 2010

Image
Téa is still here with us, 
but I wanted to take a break and post some pictures my SIL, Wendy, brought me late last night.  
She was at Family Camp for 3 days doing face painting.  
Austin told Wendy to tell me this is a real beard he had grown since he left last Sunday. I believed her at first!
 Hailey and McKenzie

Is that Carly's daughter Rivka?  I really can't tell.   I didn't think she went this year.
The next 5 pictures, I am hoping someone will know who they are.
I don't even have a guess.   Can anyone tell me?  
Wendy does such beautiful work. Is this Kaidy Kennington?
Jonas (minus Téa), Amy, Austin It was good seeing this picture being I can't talk to them this week...no cell phone coverage there. I heard that Jonas is letting no one hold him but his Mom since his twin left to come to our house.  He probably is confused. 
Austin, my brother Richard, and Hailey Can't wait to see what other pictures people come home with tomorrow. Wendy took all of these.  And, did ALL t…

Her favorite word is 'trash'

Image
But I try not to take it personal. Even when she says it all through lunch.  Lunch:  leftover 'deddy' (spaghetti) and cantalope.  Every few bites, she would say 'trash.'
And oh, when it was time to put her diaper in the trash, it was like Christmas to her.
Flipping the light switch on and off was almost as good as the trash.
Grandpa came home 2 hours early from work, so he took us shoe shopping. He's trying to coax Téa into giving back the shoe she took from the shelf.
Our baby girls obviously has experience with a debit card!
I wonder what she was thinking when she saw this poster on the way out of the mall.
We had barely started the car when we heard velcro sounds coming from the back seat.   Téa already had learned how to unlatch her new sandals! Dinner:  We were having tuna salad.
So I just gave her some of the tuna mixed with mayo, some avocado pieces, and some cooked carrots, and toast....she seemed to love it all.
Then I started thinking....Is it okay to give tuna to …

Miss Téa is moving in tomorrow!

Image
Our 15 month old granddaughter, Miss Téa, is moving in for a 48 hour visit.  Her parents and family are still up at Family Camp, but Téa is a little too busy to live in pure dirt and open air for the entire 6 days, so they are cutting her adventure down by 2 days, and she will be under the care of Grandma Honey. 

Téa is the busiest baby Amy has ever had.  And she has had 7.  

So I've decided to just make the main part of our house like one large play pen...or 'pack and play' as they are called now.  My back is not feeling very good these days so hopefully this will help alleviate the need to continually pick her up and move her out of danger.  I hope it works.

I'm worried that she will miss her Mom way much, being they have never been separated overnight.
And, she has never been separated from her twin brother! 

But we will do our best to keep her distracted and happy as best as we can.
And we will enjoy loving on our little baby girl.

I will keep you posted on how i…

My Sidewalk Chalk Girls

Image
This post was from one day last week.
I had been waiting for their parents to return from Comic-Con before showing this.
Time for lunch!!
I asked Elora why she was blowing her hands. She said, "Because the little tacos are hot.  So I want to get my hands really cold before touching them." Only Elora.
I thought Elora had written,  "Thank you for having us."   It was until Den got home that night that I realized she had written, "Thank you for loving us."
