I went to the store after picking the kids up from school and she asked me paper or plastic? I looked at my stuff and said that it was ok, I didn't need either. She gave me the weirdest look (like I'd grown a horn out of my head) and said, really?.... yeah.. really. I had a case of water, a gallon of milk, cereal, and juice. Nothing needed to be bagged. I think it kinda stressed her out, lol.
Matthew was determined to climb on that thing (it moved up and down) stand up and jump off it.
And he did!

I'm just wondering what every ones thoughts were right know since it's fairly new out in the news. I know Americans are fairing it pretty well, with only one hospitalized and no deaths. Mexico isn't doing so well with many people dieing and that is scary to me. It has spread outside of North America. It's kinda the whole unknown thing, is it going to plateau not far from where we are at or is it going to make history.
At times I feel fine about it but then I think of Kaitlen. She's my sickly one. All of my kids can get the same virus and shes down and out twice as hard and twice as long. She'll get the fever, ear inf, Bronchitis, laryngitis (she just got over that) and of course pneumonia. With her poor immune system and the fact that it's the pneumonia that's killing the people with the flu, that's what's scary to me. Then I have Matthew. He'll catch the same cold as everyone and it will only last half the amount of time it normally does with the other kids. He has an awesome immune system. Both Kaitlen and Matthew were breast fed and kaitlen for A LOT LONGER THAN MATTHEW! (and Matthew was for almost 2 yrs) so no one can argue the whole formula vs breast thing.
When i was looking for an image for this post i found this article and it was from two yrs ago. I thought it was interesting, it felt unfinished, but interesting.
Here are some links in case you haven't read about it and want to. 1, 2, 3
oh, and the image was from 2003, so even though this strain is new to us, the situation isn't.
Feel free to leave your honest opinion/thoughts. This isn't a debate and it sure isn't a board on ivillage, LOL!!! ;)
Since the couple days that have past since i taped this, now 4 and 5 at a time will roost on the edge of the tub.

When Ben was sleeping I quickly decorated the table, brought out his present from hidding and waited for him and the younger two to wake up.
Ben was surprised when he got up and the sucky thing was that we had to wait until the evening before eating the cake!!!
We picked the kids up from school early, went for my MRI, ate dinner at Coltons (i was starved and Kaitlen had a free meal thing from school), then we came home and finally got to eat that yummy cake.
His cake- It's a Razorback cop and its actually on a road, lol. How cute is that?? She did a great job.
Today will be Handmade By Ashley. She does most of her business through Myspace but you can also email her if you like. She does have a blog were you can follow her and her adorable daughter Lily Mae.
She makes all my girls bows and does an awesome job at it. She made Abbies Halloween costume. She makes the cutest tutus. (we have many of those, lol)
Here is some of her awesome work.
She also makes: Decorated wipey cases, paci holders for boys and girls, korkers bows, silk flower bows, M2M bows (made to match) embroidered shirts that will match the bows too (great for the holidays, 4th of July, Easter, Christmas).

After Walmart I need to run down to Hobby Lobby and take some pics of fabric. I do that real quick and decide to stop off at Ben's work since we will be passing by it. As soon as I get there the traffic over his radio is saying something about a guy with a knife at walmart. The walmart I left 40 minutes ago. I left the PD and as i get to the main rd EMS is on it's way to Walmart. Here is the sad ending to this story and thankfully no one else was hurt. And no, it wasn't the guy that spit the tobacco, but Ben informed me I'm not aloud to call out anyone on anything anymore, because you never know.

THE HOUSE OF THEY
Have you heard of the terrible family They,
And the dreadful, venomous things They say?
Why, half the gossip under the sun,
If you trace it back, you will find begun
In that wretched House of They.
A numerous family, so I am told,
And its genealogical tree is old;
For ever since Adam and Eve began
To build up the curious race of man,
Has existed the House of They.
Gossip-mongers and spreaders of lies,
Horrid people whom all despise!
And yet the best of us now and then,
Repeat queer tales about women and men
And quote the House of They.
They live like lords, and never labor;
A They’s one task is to watch his neighbor,
And tell his business and private affairs
To the world at large; they are sowers of tares –
These folks in the House of They.
It is wholly useless to follow a They
With a whip or a gun, for he slips away
And into his house, where you cannot go;
It is locked and bolted and guarded so –
This horrible house of They.
Though you cannot get in, yet They got out,
And spread their villainous tales about;
Of all the rascals under the sun
Who have come to punishment, never one
Belonged to the House of They.

We have been to the Oklahoma memorial a couple times and on our first time there Ben (i) put one of his LASD patches on the fence. The little girls shoe took my breath away and I decided to place Bens patch by her shoe.
Columbine.... This image i will never forget! It wasn't until last year when I looked up his name on the Internet. He is Patrick Ireland. I hope he is doing well today.
Today is also the anniversary for the end of the Waco Siege. I know OKC bombing was purposely done on the Waco anniversary.
Virginia Tech was on the 16th of April. Two years, hard to believe.
It was a Wednesday and hospice had got her pain under control. She called me and I wasn't home and she left a message. The next couple times I called she was asleep. Then she was at the point were she was unable to speak and my sister Jackie held the phone up to Moms ear and I got to speak to her. Jackie said she could see Moms eyes moving. She knew I was talking to her.
I have had this message on my machine for over a year now and my machine has been full for almost a year. I will erase my machine soon. Not tomorrow, probably not even the day after, but soon.

Ok, there was a funny moment! Now, my Dr is a very fun, likable, and personable. You are instantly comfortable with him. Well, he was showing us this one part of the report and I don't remember what it said, but basically it was referring to my fat. He actually pinched my fat stomach indicating that's why it said it in the report, LMAO!!! and he looked at Ben and said him too!!!! HAHA. Anyway, I'm glad he's not afraid to say someone is fat. Most Dr's are.
UPDATE- it's a MRCP, which makes sense.

Ok, Ben got a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 for the SWAT team. I think she deserves a name, don't you? Ben has no idea I'm doing this and he will probably pee his pants (if he was a girl) when he sees this.
So. Should she have a hot, sexy name? A strong, girthy female name? or what? A dingy blond name, lol (sorry any blonds out there) Gay male name?
Just leave any and all names in the comment section. Nothings off limits.
Dee over at Two of a kind, Working on a full house. Head over their to see more TTT.

Playing with their Peeps!
Saturday we went to Mt View to leave flowers for Bens mom. The kids got to pick out the flowers and Cody brought a plastic Easter egg to leave at her grave. After we left the cemetary we went to a gun show they had going on their. Matthew was in heaven!!!! and Code was very interested in the antique pistols. Then of course Abbie was freaking because there was people all over the place.
After we left the gun show we met up with Uncle Lani and Auntie Anna for lunch. The kids always love getting together.
Here is Kaitlen and Emily.
My Matthew is actually William Matthew John and William is William Jacob.
They look so much alike. They even have the same lumps on their skulls. The only thing is their color. Matthew is as white as white can get. He's my white boy and Willy has tan skin like Kaitlen and Emily. Poor Matthew and Cody, they didn't get any of the Filipino skin color.
ok, neither did Abbie, LOL. but Abbie has a lot of red hair. It's hard to capture in a pic though.
Coloring eggs..... yeahhhhhhhh.
Cody is my eddie munster. He has a widows peak. :)
ok. She kept trying and trying to drink the coloring. So i let her to put an end to it.
ok, I know. I didn't make their dresses.
Abbie is wearing Kaitlens dress from 4 years ago.
I actually still have those shoes in my closet :) and Matthew wears that shirt that Cody has on, lol.
Hope you all had a great weekend!!
oh, the boys and their Easter clothes? Well, I cut their hair and told them to shower and finish getting dressed and they never finished......... and we weren't going anywhere so i didn't press the issue.
