Thought I'd better post about our trip to California. We went there to visit my sister Linda and her family for my Mother's 70th Birthday!!! Whoo Hooo she doesn't look at all 70 years old. We had a wonderful time. Lots of shopping, eating, we celebrated 2 birthdays while we were there and a couple of ball games. There were a few minor set backs with Linda pulling a muscle in her back the day we got there. She got out of the car to help lift the heavy suitcases and bent over and couldn't get back up. At first I thought she was kidding and called her a few names but she was serious alright because for the next 5 days we had to cater to her every wish!!!! No actually it wasn't as bad as I am telling you it was. She actually did pretty dang good for the pain that she was in. She was a trooper. Thank goodness my Mom brought her handicap sticker because the way Linda was walking she totally fit the sign. :) Mom had a good birthday, so she says. We tried to make it special and the kids definately went out of their way to make that happen. We had to hear every ten minutes from the 3 year olds "Happy Birthday", they sound exactly like Frosty The Snowman when he says "Happy New Year" and they said it just like him. Hayden and Adisynn grab assed (thats what my Mom always called bickering) the whole time we were there. We heard, "I'm not your friend," "shut your mouth," "I don't like you," so many times that I thought I would beat the crap out of them. (But of course I wouldn't have) :o Well, my Mom, me, Adisynn and Berlynn will be heading to Gilbert, Arizona in 3 weeks to visit my other sister Laura. The thought of traveling again and dealing with the airport scene, having my luggage put on another plane and being delivered to my house the next day, and a 3 year old gives me a headache but I'm sure when the time comes around we will be rip, roaring and ready to go. I hope!!! :)
My sister sent this to me and I thought it was pretty funny...
A little girl asked her mother, "How did the human race appear?" The mother answered, "God made Adam and Eve and they had children and so was all mankind made." Two days later the girl asked her father the same question. The father answered, "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved." The confused girl returned to her mother and said, "Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Dad said they developed from monkeys?" The mother answered, "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his."
Ok, its been 16 years since I had a 3 year old and I must have forgot what it was like, because sometimes I am ready to pull my hair out. I hear all the time that having a child in your later years will keep you young... WELL, I DON"T THINK SO!!! I have grey hair, I can't see very well and have a hard time chasing her and the dog down the street.I enjoy reading many of your posts of those who have 3 and 4 year olds because it helps me realize that this is all normal craziness and time goes by so fast and then they're gone. So, I just needed to RANT a little bit tonight because come tomorrow we start all over again.. But everyday I thank the Lord for the 2 special gifts he's given us and even though I'm 46 I would do it all over again even if I were 76 (good hell, okay maybe not that old)
I need to get this post out to family and friends of the recent pictures taken of Abigail and Ella. Its been 3 weeks since the last time. You family members need to get your butts out here for a visit and see her for yourself. She's so dang cute!! But I will continue to take pictures for ya!! If I have to... :) HeHe.. I tried to get her to wake up so I could get a picture of her with her eyes open. No such luck. Maybe next time.
