Today was also a special day, because Frankie's middle sister, Jackie gave birth to a little boy today, Wyatt James. He was 16" long and weighed in at 4lbs 5oz. Even though Jackie had to have an emergency C-section, her mom tells me she is doing well. Isn't that a great name, Wyatt James!

If I ever put together a list of my favorite movies it would look something like, The King & I, The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins. Sissy and I have watched these together many, many times. In the girls room Sissy even has a 'Maria' Barbie and two 'Eliza Doolittle' Barbies. Abigail was asking who the Eliza Doolittle Barbies were, so Saturday, the girls and I watched My Fair Lady. I love that movie! (But beware, there are some unnecessary words in it) I wish ladies still dressed liked that, all those bows and ribbons and lace! Obviously, Jon worked Saturday!

School is back in full force . . . Yippee, NOT! I snapped these today while we we're playing a reading comprehension game. The kids were on the couch with pillows between them so they could not see each other's answer cube. The first picture shows how most questions went, no 2 cubes on the same answer! When they did get on right, they were fist bumping! Here are the winners of our 3 rounds:

Tonight we had a surprise party for Sissy. Frankie was surprised to see a cake with her name on it at Life Group. She has a few more days until she turns 23. It's crazy when you buy a pack of 2 dozen candles for your child's birthday and use (almost) all of them! She's hoping for some Jonas Brothers, & High Musical gear. . . . hmm we'll see what the birthday bunny brings! Mommy loves you!

Truly an action not typically found in polite society, but quite popular among 5th grade boys at camp. One of those funny, but wrong, so wrong, moments! And yes, I did know Lori was coming and I did have bendy straws on hand! But, I did not inhale!

The bowl was still warm, so when I picked up the bowl to place it in the freezer, it shattered, complete with leaving a piece of crystal sticking out of my right wrist! My first impulse was to shake the glass off my wrist, which was followed by blood squirting out my wrist!
Shortening the story, a visit to my doctor, a tetanus shot, an MRI and now an upcoming appointment with a wrist surgeon and I will be back to normal, minus a very pretty punch bowl. I'm thinking of investing in an ice bucket, a pretty metal ice bucket!

One of the coolest things at the new camp was the lagoon. Kids took turns swimming at the pool and the lagoon.
