Killing Time


Syd is just showing off her future dreams of modeling......
Hub is gone again to commune with men in the woods. And some bad stuff happened like my cell phone coming into contact with water. And wonder of wonders, not working! And I tried to not have a tantrum about it, but I failed.  And then Ike threw a tantrum this morning because some of his new Space Mission LEGO pieces were missing. And every other child has also surpassed their quota on tantrums. But that just means we're tantrummed out, right? Or maybe we're just stocking up for a rainy day.
But for the Good News Minute---Ike had his 10th Birthday!


Isaac is so great with Sydney. If I had to hire a nanny I think I'd really just hire him. And since he's my kid and I think it's part of his responsibility to help out around home I wouldn't even  have to pay him! See how I just got a free nanny?
Having a ten-year-old is nuts because I look like I'm only 18, but what can I do? He celebrated by seeing  The Sorcerer's Apprentice, had a sleepover, ate apple crisp, Alfredo and pizza (not in that order). And he got some new books, clothes and LEGOs. He's easy to please.
Now we're off to kill some time at a rockin' new splash pad. Good thing I don't own a cell phone anymore because it'd probably get wet.....

I love how you look on the bright side!!! No worries about gettin' that cell phone wet at the splash park - go hog wild!

I love the pic of Syd with her buck teeth :)

We've had our share of tantrums around here too this weekend (mine mostly)
Happy bday to Isaac. Could he give us a little review of the new movie?

No stinkin' kidding? If I didn't look too closely at you I would definitely have confused you for ike's girlfriend.
Sounds like the best birthday ever. Did he giggle late into the night with Ty?

You totally look 18... I was just telling Tara and Emily the other night; there is NO way we can all have kids this old (Ours’ are entering Jr. High this year... YIKES!!!!!!!!!!!) Cuz we are still just kids ourselves :)

Be sure to tell Isaac Happy Birhtday~

I am glad to hear I am only 18.

Maybe Ike can start a babysitters club.

Happy Belated Birthday Isaac!!! Where has my head gone, well we all know...I got a year older and more forgetful! Have you tried the rice trick with your cell phone? 2 others told us about it as James just hit the river at the same time he did while fishing. it helped it work 1/2 a day but we're doing another rice bath in hopes that it will work longer than 1/2 the day the next time he inserts the battery! look...you had a tantrum for nothing!!!

Happy Birthday (late) to Isaac. I hope the week is miraculously tantrum free. Wouldn't that be nice? Did your phone miraculously dry out and start working or is it fried for good? I'd give you my old one but the guy in AZ decided I didn't need it after all I guess!
