Hey all. We were in the town's parade today for Rapid Rally Days. The kids each got to carry a balloon. They had a blast. They're still talking about how we had to walk around Horse Poop in the road. What a highlight! LOL
Lynn and the kids were here all week, and we all had so much fun.
Abbey tried on her dress again tonight for Alicia's wedding. She looks SO pretty in it. She'll be a little heartbreaker. heehee

Pee in the Grass

Ok, I don't think I wrote about this yet. If I did, sorry.
Not long ago, we went swimming, and Abbey had to pee, but didn't want to go into the potty at the pool. So, I took her out to the grass, and told her to just pee in the grass. She wouldn't do it.
Then, we went to Lima to meet my friend Heather and her triplets,and on the way home Abbey REALLY had to go. SO, I pulled off of the expressway, and got out the portable potty.
I set it up in the grass on the side of the road, and she went potty.
A month or so later, Lynn was here with here kids, and we all went to dinner at a restaurant downtown.
All of a sudden, Abbey blurts out. "Mom! Can I pee in the Grass?"
I said "Abbey, shhhh. We'll go to the potty." she said "no, I want to pee in the GRASS!"
I got her away from the table, and unfortunately, all the way back through the restaurant to the restroom, she kept repeating"But I want to pee in the Grass!!!!"
Talk about embarrassing. People had to be wondering what I do with that child!!! ha ha

My Babies are FOUR!!!

What a day! My babies turned 4 today. We had a very busy, but very fun day. They were given some really nice presents from friends and family today.
We had a small party with friends from church and a couple of neighbors. We had sloppy joes, baked beans, meatballs, chips and of course,cake. Lynn made a GREAT Scooby Doo Cake. My freind Brenda pretty much did all the cooking. I don't know what I would have done today without the two of them. Especially since we had a garage sale going on at the same time!!! AAAAHHH ha ha
Brenda's Son and Girlfriend pretty much handled that for us though.
Tomorrow, in the morning Abbey has dance class, then we have to be at the middle school at 10:30 because the trio was chosen to carry balloons in the parade to escort Clifford the Big Red Dog. YIPPEEE......It should be a really fun day.
I'll let you know more after it's over!!!
Love you all

Today we went to the zoo. It started out OK, not GREAT but OK.....I had a dr's appt. first,which was not the most pleasant moment. Then I was really hurting today, and SO tired. I was ready at one point, to just put the kids back in the car and go home. However, Lynn insisted pretty soon,that we all sit down, and she would go get us some lunch. So, between that rest, meal and some Darvocet, I started to feel much better.
So, on we went, and the day got better.
THEN, we went to see the Hippos. The kids were loving it. The hippos didn't let us down, they did in fact, poop in front of us as expected and anticipated. ha ha ha ha ha
As we were getting ready to leave the hippos to go see the elephants, Dylan was walking behind me, and going to our wagon. I turned to make sure he was still with me, and this lady with a baby in a carriage, whipped around at him and said "don't punch" as she proceeded to hit my son@!!!!##@%#$%@#%^@$%^@$ Let me tell you. I was a total momma bear. I said "Excuse Me. What do you think you're doing?" and she said "he was hitting the baby"
I said 'first of all, I doubt that, and second of all IF he did, you say something to me, his mother, you do NOT EVER hit my child!"
After I got the kids in the wagon, and saw that she had stepped in front of us as if to purposely be in our way, we ran over the backs of her feet!!! ha ha
I know that was pretty petty, but I'm thinking she got off good.
NOW, the story continues. I thought MAYBE Dylan did touch the baby,because that's what little boys do..They touch things. And Dylan seems to always be doing that. We neared the elephants, and I turned to talk to Lynn about it all,and say how absolutely ticked off I was. Another lady heard us, and said "I heard and saw it all, and your son NEVER EVER touched that baby."
OH, was I fuming then. She said he ran his finger along the carriage as he walked by, and never once touched that baby.
OH, did I want to go back in there, but I knew I would not be able to control myself. I was already boiling. This 'witness' told me she would have hit her had she been me. I really wish I would have.
If I had to do it over, I would have had someone watch her, and keep her there while I went to get security to kick her out of the zoo or something. How dare she?? RRRRRRRAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH
I pulled Dylan aside and told him that lady should NEVER have hit him, and that he's a very good boy, and mommy yelled at that lady, and she wont hit him again, cuz that wasn't nice. He just smiled and said "ok mommy."

Mommy's Little Helper...........

Trevor is LOVING to help with things. Today I went to empty the dishwasher, and that little guy came along and emtied it pretty much all himself. He just handed me things,and I put them away. It was so cute. Then he stood there and waited till I filled it again, told me to put soap in ,and then he shut the door, and helped me turn it on. I was SO proud of him.

We went tonight to see fireworks. The kids don't really remember seeing them before, and we haven't gone the last 2 years, so this was really their "first" time. Abbey was kind of scared, and wanted to go to the van at first, but ended up enjoying it.
Dylan kept saying something about the "Fire Trucks are coming" and I couldn't figure that out for a while, then realized that he was calling "fireworks" - "firetrucks" ha ha ha
Trevor just thought the whole thing was great, and watched pretty much in silence, and in Awe!!! We had a good time. I'll post pics when I get some developed.
Lynn and the kids are here right now, and we are all having such a GREAT time together. The kids all get along so well. Tomorrow night, I am taking Lynn, as part of her Birthday Present, to eat at Ciaos. Dave is going to be brave, and watch all FIVE kids!!! woohoo!!! I think they'll all do well though.

Lot's of Pic's

Yesterday, when I told Abbey it was time to come inside she said "but I want to go out" and I said "no" and she said "but mom, I NEEEEED to go outside!!!" LOL
I got a bunch of pictures back on Saturday: Easter, mom and dad, the kids and their cousins, the zoo.....how fun to look at them all.
This first picture is my Ever SO Cute mom and dad when they were here for their 50th anniversary gift from a few of us kids.
And then there's the trio's Pic, from Easter this year.

"They Just Fell Down!"

Ok, the kid's were all outside playing (my trio, and Lynn's kids). Lynn and I were making lunch or something (we were in the kitchen/dining room area) and she looked out the back door and said "what are they all doing?" I said "what?" and she said "they are all, well, most all, standing around looking at something!" So I went over to where she was standing and looked out the window, but what I saw was something totally different. I said "what in the WORLD?"
Lynn: "what?"
Lynn: "what?!"
Me: "What!?! Abbey!?!? What in the WORLD?"
By this time I had made it to the door, and yelled out and said "Abbey, what in the world are you doing?"
I could hear Lynn in the background laughing her 'precious pup' laugh. I was about to bust a gut myself I must say.
Four of the kids are standing around looking at something, and Abbey is standing all on her own by the swings, with her shorts and panties down around one ankle!!!!!!!!!!!
I said "Abbey! Why in the World are your pants down?"
She said "they fell down!"
We're still not sure why. Or what happened. Other than there is a potty chair out there, and I'm thinking she was getting ready to go potty, then got distracted watching whatever the other kids were watching, and forgot what she was doing! It was SO funny. She was just standing there pretty as you please, with her shorts around her ankle........ha ha ha ha
