ok, wow, well~ on Saturday I cut the boys' hair, and decided to cut Abbey's too. It was starting to look kinda scraggly. I cut it a little longer than shoulder length, and tapered it. It looked SOOOOOOO cute. I just couldn't get over it!
Tonight however,......UGH, the boys got ahold of the hair scissors. And, well, sissy's hair no longer looks SOOOOOOOO cute.
I just wanted to cry! I wasn't sure if I had wanted to cut it in the first place, but then was really happy with it. But now! It's gonna have to be even shorter. And she's in Hill's wedding in a couple of months! I'm gonna have to take her somewhere to get it fixed. I'll put a picture of it on here when I get them developed. wwwwwaaaaaahhhhhhh

The Craziest DAY

Ok, the trio has all had a cough. I've been giving them a new cough medicine that the dr. suggested. BAD CHOICE. I think it made them crazy!!!!! I'm just gonna list the sins......ready for this???

The boys........
A. tore their room apart like never before
B. knocked over the HUGE dollhouse in Abbey's room........if you haven't seen it before, ask me about it. I don't know HOW they did that.
C. Got a sack of onions that I had bought, and some scissors, and a knife (all while I sat in the living room, They are SOOOO sneaky) took them to Abbey's room, and cut the bag open, and was trying to cut open the onions.
I knew something was up when Trevor out of nowhere said "sshhh just stay right there mom, it's alright." hmmm, funny, since I never asked him "what's happening"
D. The boys got naked in the backyard, and sat in the turtle top (the top of one of those turtle sandboxes) that was filled with rain water, AND Dylan found a straw from a previous summertime juice box, and was sucking in water, and spitting it everywhere, including his brother.
D. Dylan hid under the table...............with a bottle of Parmesan cheese, and dumped half of it out all over the floor for no apparent reason.
E. and last but not least - They jumped on their beds SO much, (even though I constantly got after them to stop) that Dylans crashed to the floor..............

CALGONE......TAKE ME AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mom or Julie??

The other night, I forgot to put this in, but when we were downtown Abbey asked me "hey mom? Can I call you Julie?"
I said "no, you can call me mom or mommy."
She said "oh, ok"

Does Jesus Like Pink????

LOL, well, this weekend, me and the kids went downtown for the bike parade. We actually took the wagon, and decorated it and wheeled down the road in the parade. Then we played at the park, got something to drink and a snack, walked along the towpath, and saw the tents with "Lewis and Clark" homemade soap making, spinning from an Angora Rabbit and Johnny Appleseed.
Later on, while getting ready for bed, Abbey asked Dave "Daddy, is Jesus a boy or a girl??" and Dave answered "well, he's a boy." She thought about that and then asked "well, does He still like pink?" LOL, Dave told her he was pretty sure Jesus likes pink!
Dylan was running around with a peice of cloth tied around his neck (loosely that is) and acting like a superhero. Dave said "Dylan, are you a superhero?" Dylan said "No, I just a boy in a blanket daddy."
UGH, I love them so much my heart aches. I had to go kiss them all after they were asleep last night, cuz I watched too much Lifetime TV! rrraaahhh
Everyone was either dying and leaving their kids motherless, or they had a sick child around the age of my kids. I've sworn off Lifetime movies. I went in their rooms and kissed them and whispered "I Love You." The boys both whispered back in their sleep "I wuv u." aaaaaahhhhhh

Evil Swings, Whizzing, and School

I'll start with the last one and work my way back. We started school yesterday. Today, we had such a good day. We worked on shapes, the number 1, we painted with blue, yellow and red, and just colored and had a story. Dylan especially did really well with his shapes. They all got them, but he seemed to get them really quick. I would draw one on the chalk board, then ask them where it was on their paper, and he pointed the right one out really quickly every time. They loved painting too. We're all enjoying school.
Ok, this is kinda a Dylan day. LOL, whizzing.......he said "mom, I have to pee." and I said "you gotta take a whizz?" I don't know where that came from, except that it was a word from my childhood growing up with 5 brothers!!
He just kinda looked at me funny. I said, ok, let's go to the potty so you can take a whizz!! He said "yeah, whizz"
When he finished, and was washing his hands, I said "you're such a good whizzer!! and he said "Mom! I not a Whizzer!!!" It just all struck me so funny.
Ok, the evil swing. Before dinner, me and the boys took showers. (I just wanted one, so they thought that was a cool idea too, and got in.) We all got clean clothes on, were feeling good, and me and the kids got in the van to go downtown to park, and then go for a walk along the river. We were having such good time. We picked up rocks, and leaves, andfound some feathers.
Dylan said it was the birds tail. He did this one other time, and shouted to a bird to"come back and get your tail!!!" LOL
We went and sat on one of the big swings at the river and was watching the birds and cranes. Those stupid swings need to have another bar in the back. Dylan fell right through. I picked him up and brushed him off, but didn'tnotice until a couple of minutes later, that he had a big ole lump on his head, and it was bleeding. We went back home, and put some ice on it. He held the ice on there like a good boy for a long time. He was back to running and yelling and playing in an hour or so. He told his brother "no, don't touch. Mom will show you." It was funny. He wanted to show it off, but not at his expense. Wanted to make sure I was the only one that touched it. I told them we'd go back tomorrow and walk again. I'm going to make a call and complain. I think another board should be put on the back. I was always afraid of that happening, and now it did!
Tomorrow is another day.................In the life of TAD. :)

A Quick Cure to Just about ANYTHING

Mommy wasn't feeling too well tonight. The boys were "taking care of me."
Dylan was rubbing my hair, and Trevor went to get the "dr's cart."
I was laying on the couch. Out of nowhere, here comes Trevor with his little bottle of Grape KoolAid. He said "here mommy, this will make you better," and poured it toward my mouth. I didn't know it was coming, so got Grape KoolAid all over my face and in my ear.
I got him to turn it back upright, and sat up. Then he wanted to give me a drink again. So I let him. But he kept it in my mouth, and I couldn't swallow!! He finally took it out of my mouth, but forgot to turn it upright, and I got pop up my nose along with a mouthful. Needless to say, I spit grape KoolAid all over, and announced "Ok, I'm cured!! Thanks boys!!" LOL
Grape KoolAid up your nose and in your ear will cure you of just about anything REAL Fast!!!


Trevor showed me tonight how T-Rex runs. He scrunched his arms up, and ran bringing his legs up as high as he could while he ran. I laughed right out loud. So of course, he had to keep doing it. Man, I love my kids.

The Fair

We went to the fair tonight. What fun! We went with Wade and Jill and Gracie. We splurged on tickets, and the boys rode some rides, and the ferris wheel with their daddy. (Abbey was too chicken, and didn't want to ride,just watch) heehee
So, the boys got to ride several times. On their favorite ride, the "school bus" we got a free ride. The guy said he'd give us another ride if we would buy him a pop. So we did, and the boys got to ride for free another time.
They were so cute. LOVING Every moment of it.
We watched the horse show. The boys stood on the fence like little farm boys and watched for the longest time. Although, at one of the horse shows, they were more interested in the pile of poop!! ha ha
Abbey was sort of afraid of everything at first, but got used to it all, and liked looking at the chickens. Especially since a couple of them had laid eggs. That was neat to see.
Dylan "cock-a-doodle-dooed" all over the Cow building after that. LOL
We watched some Cloggers, and the three of them danced up a storm. Dylan tried to get on stage, and was almost on when I caught him!! Trevor jumped out in the middle of everyone and did this funky disco move! And Abigail was just all over the place. It was really fun.
It just started, so we might go another night, and see more with the horses. Mommy, and kids really liked that part.

Birthday Party Fun

Our neighbors had a party tonight. Carol, had a surprise party for her husband Wes, and we all went. There were lots of kids there, and the trio had a BLAST and were soooooo dirty when we got home. LOL, but it was a very good dirty.
We met some new good friends. One was a couple that lives just down the street. We really enjoyed talking. And also, One of Wes's best friends from HS, he and his wife also homeschool, so we talked for quite a while. I really enjoyed myself. We all did. It was a great time.

The Best Mommy..........

Awwww, my mothers heart is swollen with love. Tonight putting the kids to bed, they asked for one of their favorite things. A drink of milk. As usual, I told them that once everyone was settled in bed, I would get them a drink, after we prayed, kissed and hugged.
I got the milk and delivered as promised, and Dylan said "mom, you're the best Mommy!""
What more can I say???

Trevor the Big Brother.....

As you know from the previous post, Abbey was stung. Now she's afraid of every flying bug that there is, and doesn't want to go in the back yard. Well, she was screaming and throwing a fit about going out back, so Trevor said "I'm the Big Brother! Big Trevor will take care of you!!"
Didn't change her mind any, but it was cute and chivalrous none the less.
