Conner thought that Abby making this silly noise was one of the funniest things ever!

Waffle, Waffle

Tonight when I pushed Conner's chair up to the table for dinner, the plate of waffles was a little to close to where he was sitting. So he helped himself to a waffle.





He had fun but he is still not quite ready for food.
He still gags a lot when he gets chunks off in his mouth.

Enjoying a pretty day

Yesterday was a pretty day outside.
And after the girls being sick, I decided to take them out for fresh air and sun to help them feel better.
(Couldn't go to school as there is a 24 hour no fever rule)
Here are some pictures.









I couldn't get Conner to look up for anything. Too busy picking and eating the grass.

Our March adventure

We have had an issue with our washing machine flooding half of the basement with every load.
Well after snaking the drain to reveal roots 
we called a plumber to see if there was anything that could be done about it.
While he was here we got a quote to see how much it would be to replace all of our pipes.
After a quote of over $5,000 it turned into a DIY project that required a visit from Dad and Nathanial.
Well 5 days, tons of trips to Lowes and a cut finger later we now have new pipes, toilet and water heater.
Here are some pictures.
 This was one of the pipes to the washer.
 Nathanial bent it with his bare hands.
That is not supposed to happen.
 
 Some of the new PEX pipe.

 Nathanial's finger after a run-in with the PEX pipe cutter.
Now the yuckyness that was in our pipes.




 Also Bethany learned how to babywear while she was here and loved it!
Trip to the park in the middle of all the craziness.

After all the fun with the pipes the older 2 girls decided to come down with very high fevers.
That led to 3 missed days of school for Penelope and 1 for Sydney.
Now Abby is staying with us for the next 2 weeks, hopefully things won't be too crazy.

Sisters...

are so funny!

Before I got the camera he was laughing so hard he could hardly breathe.
I need to get that boy some bibs. His shirts get soaked.

Happy Birthday Dr. Suess

For Dr. Suess's birthday the school does a book character parade. 
 Where the children are allowed to dress up as characters from books.
Sydney wanted to go as the Lorax but I don't have an orange fur.
So she was a frog from "froggy goes to Camp"
 Penelope was the "Cat in the Hat'
In true Dr. Suess fashion Penelope went to school wearing a polka dot shirt and candy corn pants.
And Becca was a pirate. 
That apparently only has one eye.
