I almost forgot...

Recently, we joined Netflix so we could get movies without having to buy and store them. The girls love it because they get a mailbox full of fun movies. The most recent mailing was Tinkerbell. They've watched a gazillion times over the past several days.

Brooklynn loves to ask questions and process the movie out loud. It's funny to hear all the things she wonders about as she's watching. I was sitting on the couch with her and she asked why Tink's clothes were made out of leaves. I told her that that's just what fairies wear in this movie. She then asked if we have fairies in OUR world (her way of asking if they were real). I told her that they were just pretend. Her response nearly made me fall off the couch.

She crossed her arms and got very serious. She said, "well, there's at least one!....TOOTH!"

It was too hilarious with her very grown up and serious look on her face.

"oh yes," I told her... "I almost forgot!"

Okay, so as I type this, my little Brooklynn comes in and sees my MIL's phone. Brooklynn, very curiously peeks over the tabletop and says, "You have a RED Berry!!!"

My MIL's phone is a red blackberry. Is that not too funny!

On the Road to Recovery

Finally, after a very long (and busy) month, I am feeling much better! Whooohooo!

My family has done an amazing job taking care of me, the kids, my house, and ....well, pretty much everything! Praise the Lord for my sweet family!

The girls were very excited to see their cousin Emma--they had a blast for the two days she was here. They had movie nights, princess parties, and giggled only every thirty seconds!

Poor Caleb and Nathan were very, very outnumbered! But, as you can see, they had some 'guy time' too!

Sweet Cousins!
If you look closely, you can see that there are three little beauties piled on the bed! They are enjoying some Disney movie or another! (probably for the 10th time)
Caleb lovin' on his daddy! They're best buds--it's too cute!

Kylee, right before her third wardrobe change for the day! She wears at least three dresses during the course of a single day!
Brooklynn, snuggling with Daddy while watching a movie.
Caleb, digging through the tupperware. They make great drums!

Back to Blogging!

I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted! I guess there's been so much going on that I didn't have time to post! Plus, I misplaced my camera charger so pictures were out of the question.

I found my charger yesterday, and it's happily giving my camera a much need jolt of energy.
Speaking of energy... the three amigos are busier than ever.

I stopped working full time before my surgery, so we are all spending some much needed quality time together! Those little ones are such a joy!

I'm still in the recovery phase so we are finding creative ways to play together. Right now, the favorite seems to be movie dates. The girls pile on my bed and we watch movies or play computer games online. We giggle and snuggle and have a grand ol' time.

Caleb's favorite pass time is playing ball. His golf club and ball seem to get the most use. He doesn't actually hit the ball---it's usually his sisters' head! We're learning....

He loves to throw any ball he can get his hands on. He finds one and repeats, "Ball! Ball! Ball!"
He, then proceeds to yell, "BALL!!" and hums it across the room. Everytime!
Unfortunately, I've noticed that he also yells it when he's throwing just about anything! You have a split second to get out of the line of fire when you hear him yelling. He's got an arm, that's for sure!

I love my life!
