What are dreams made of?

Since my brain takes a full 6 months to process something into a dream... Amie hasn't yet entered my dream life. But last night Amie was trying to nurse while I slept and because I wasn't quite cooperating... she scratched me up! So in my dream I was trying to nurse a MACAW!

Nothing falling from the sky!

Maggie normally panics over EVERYTHING! But today she lost tooth #2 and when it fell from her mouth... she never saw it again... apparently the tooth fairy has a "tooth magnet" that will go to the school and find it!

Abbie has started singing at the top of her lungs this week. She also sings while she splashes in the bath. Maggie (Who is also in the bath) is screaming, "Abbie, I'm not in the mood!" and Abbie replies, "Maggie, na na na nude!"

Amie has a new seat. I gave in and purchased it when Amie decided that she wanted to sit up at least 6 hours a day. My arms were getting tired! Now she can sit in front of me when I type, sew, cook and wash dishes!

In loving memory

We have had the same 10 fish for the last 2 years. When we moved last year, we placed 2 plecostomus and 8 neon tetras in large jars and moved 622 miles north. The next day, we found our fish tank broken. So DAYS later I went to walmart and purchased a replacement... it had missing pieces! So I mixed and matched the pieces together and gave our fish their new home.

Just yesterday... one of our plecostomus fish finally gave in after a long illness. He is survived by his friends plecostomus and tetras 1 through 8.

Lost in translation

Abbie keeps telling me that Jason is over at the church. When I say, "No baby. Papa is in Africa." She reminds me, "Papa, a na CHURCH" She says CHURCH nice and slow so I can catch on!

Trying to get the kids to pose!


Maggie... warning! it's long!

Abbie is quite the singer

Amie's second try

Amie's first movie

Still no news

I haven't heard from Jason yet. He landed 13 hours ago in Uganda. I know his plane landed safely 45 mins late... but that is about it. It is 9 pm his time and I doubt I will hear from him today. Tomorrow he starts his travels around the country and will have no chance to communicate. I guess I am just lonely. Grammarge comes in 2 days... so we will have someone to talk to.
