Long Lost Blog

Some of you may believe we have fallen of the planet. Truth is we don't have the Internet right now. And just because we're not informing you of all the crazy things our boys do doesn't mean the craziness has seized. So hang in there, we'll be back...

I know that this isn't a great way to break back into the blogging world (at least I hope I'm back), but these are just about the only pictures I've taken lately. These injuries also happen to be some of the most exciting things that have happened recently.

On February 6, Ethan fell face first on the floor and took a nice accidental bite out of his lip. He was very sad, and it took him a while to calm down enough to let me take this picture.

This is what it looked like a couple of days later. No, that's not a maggot. :)

On February 23, while I was still in Salt Lake (for my awesomely amazing and fun Celine Dion concert) Ethan fell and hit his ear on the edge of our rocker. These photos were both taken the next day.

Ethan seems to me to be a very fast healer. He always babies his little everyday scratches more than he babied these two injuries. He was a real trooper.
Just today Ethan slammed Spencers little pinky in their bedroom door. I couldn't get a good picture, but this is one of his worst injuries to date.

For a little update: Spencer is talking more and more everyday. He is a real stinker and cracks me up all the time. Ethan is learning to read books and write more letters. He is always making me a proud mama.

Holy Cow!

It has been WAY too long since I posted. It is driving me crazy, but we don't have the internet at home yet. I can't make myself write any worthwhile posts at someone else's house, so it may be a while until you see something interesting written here. We are enjoying our new place and the kids are doing really well. They both love their new primary and nursery classes. That was one of my concerns, so I'm glad that has worked out so well. We are still unemployed and are thankful for a little thing called student loans. There are almost no job openings in this area. Probably a lot more lay-offs happening here than hirings, so we are looking forward to our tax return, too. Shaun is enjoying school and is doing well. I am just loving the weather here and looking forward to February 22 when I FINALLY get to see Celine Dion. I hope I will be able to catch up and share pictures soon, but here's a quick update just so you know we're still alive.

Mouse Perfume

Here's a tip for those that attempt to capture mice: If you're going to set multiple mouse traps in your house make sure you remember where you put them. About a week ago I noticed a foul smell coming from the laundry room. My first thought was 'I got him', so I looked in all the places I remember putting a trap. Nothing. I left it alone for a couple days thinking maybe it was smelly laundry, but when I came back the stench was worse. I looked around again then wondered if the mouse had died in the air duct and the heater was blowing the smell around. As I was cleaning out the laundry room tonight I finally moved a table that was standing upright and there lay the trap with not one but two peaceful mouse corpses. May they now rest in peace.........in the dumpster. If the transportation of the mice from my home to the dumpster made me gag, I can't imagine what Emily's reaction would have been. BARF?
