so, been on facebook... my whole family is on facebook, so it makes things easier. for those of you still occasionally checking out the fall house, here is the update. We are building a shed that keeps getting bigger and bigger, I think we may end up with a pole barn in my suburban front yard by the time we are all done with this. Oh yeah, and Ellen Ann was born on May 3 and is doing well. The computer is in the basement now, so I do not even get to facebook all that often anymore. Gotta get the post done quickly, Ellen will be hungry again soon. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!

Philosophy class with Thomas Fall

So... Here are a few of the latest Tommy conversations:

"When I get big I am going to play cards and eat mints."

"My sister is going to wear clothes? Really mom? She is going to be real?"

"We don't eat poop. That would be rediculous. And Yucky."

"It is rude to put poop on your face. We don't put poop on our face. We just look at it. We don't touch our poop. It is rude."

(looking at a crucifix) "Mom, there is a guy on that cross" Me: "Yes buddy, his name is Jesus." Tommy: "No, mom, that's not Jesus. Jesus is a baby, I sawed him at church. That is his Daddy." (I start to think that I could get into a conversation about the Trinity with him, but opt to say, "No, that is Jesus too." for now.)

"No, Mom, that thing is not the waffle maker, Daddy is the waffle maker."

"If I have a mouth and you have a mouth and I have a leg and you have a leg, why don't you have a penis?"

"I know this is a green yogo, but actually, this one is green too."

(getting ready to sit down on his bathroom stepstool) "This is an ottoman that is my size. I don't have to climb to sit on it. It is my ottoman."

That is all for now...

Happy New Year!

We are back at home safe and sound after a whirlwind week. I am so grateful to be surrounded with such great family. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and new year. We sure did. Thomas loved all of the family time, I am not sure how he will react to having to get up early an go to daycare on Monday. I am sure there will be crying involved. I know if it were socially acceptable for me to lie on the floor and kick and scream a little, I might on Monday too.

Blogger is not letting me post pictures right now. I have them up on FB. I will try to post later.

It's a sister!

It's a sister! Tommy has a picture up on his bedroom window, and is very proud. I have decided that I am completely incapable of blogging. I was going to use Facebook as an excuse, but I am terrible at updating that too.

In other news, Potty training was a quick huge success. Less than a week! Woohoo! Next on the task list, cleaning out the computer room to make room for sister!

Oct 31

Great fun was had. We actually socialized with adults. My mom rocks. She took Tommy for the night. He go out with his cousins and get some treats. It was a really good day. Homemade costumes rock. It comes in handy to have an engineer with a full arsenal of tools to construct my vision...
