Will, Lily and Evan
Free, free at last.
Our neighborhood friends Camden and Jack.

Here is a pic of Annie's trio as the 'three amigos'. They are two boys and a girl, one year older than our gang.

I told Lily that Grammy and Papa were coming back Monday.
I see lots of casseroles and one dish dinners in our future with six mouths to feed. I'm trying to start now and find some good standbys - dinners that are fairly nutritious, easy to prepare, not a lot of fresh ingredients to pick up at the store, and inexpensive - oh and crowd pleasing for husband and finicky tots. Is that too much to ask?
Please share your favorite family dinners and we will try them out (for you posting newbies, just click 'comments' below this post to write a note).
Will has been stirring up toddler sized trouble, grabbing toys or bottles from his siblings. He has been driving Lily crazy. I had to put him in time out for a minute in the playpen this morning because he wouldn't stop climbing all over Lily and knocking her bottle out of her mouth. He can also be such a cute cuddly bear that you can't get mad at him.
Poor Evan has some bad bug and a terrible diaper rash to boot. No one was answering the doctor's appointment line and when I told the nurse I thought he had about 102 fever but couldn't find my thermometer she did not take me seriously. David had the brilliant idea to bring him in anyway and tell them that I did check and that he had a fever. And so I did just that, and low and behold when they checked it was 102. You can really can just tell by touching them after experiencing a few fevers.We were an absolute mess. I had quickly packed everyone up in the wagon after their nap and a rushed snack. I didn't put shorts or shoes on them because that just takes too long and I was trying to get there before they closed. I also didn't bring a diaper bag because I didn't think we would end up being gone almost two hours. Envision us showing up at the doctors office, everyone dirty from the playground and from meals, no shoes or shorts. After seeing our sad sight and discovering Evan's high temp, they managed to fit us in. By the time the doctor saw us everyone had a wet diaper and starting to get bored of waiting and crying. Lovely.
And now they are off again...
Hanging with Dad. I'll try to post a pic of Lily soon.
Happy travels Grammy and Papa. We are looking forward to our Thanksgiving visit Grandma G.
