Odds and ends

First, I must give credit where credit is due. I've gotten a few compliments on picture I've posted- and I have to admit, I can't take the credit for them. The shot of Ashlynn and the roses and the grandkids shots were taken by my talented sister-in-law, Lisa with her awsome camera. I wish that I had gotten the photography gene from my dad, but alas, I must live life without.

I'd like to pause here to say Happy birthday to my two sister-in-law's. Both of them are named Lisa, and both of them have the same birthday. One of them married a man named John, and the other has a brother named John. Which means: one of them married a man named Mark, and the other has a brother named Mark.


Ty has discovered that my electric tooth brush is a really good tool to use to brush his elbows. As distrubing as that was for me to see yesterday, it was more disturbing for me to think about how long this has been going on...


You know it's been a long night when your son wakes you up in the middle of the night and he's not making any sense to you. So you get up to try and figure out what he's talking about, only to trip on a kid on the ground. The kid you tripped on is the one you thought you were talking to... This isn't making any sense even to me.

In other words, Briggs was sleeping on my floor because he was throwing up. Ty came in just to visit and I start saying things like, "Briggs. Do you need to throw up? What is it? What do you need? Go into the bathroom if you need to throw-up!" This goes on for a few moments when I finally get out of bed to escort who I think is Briggs into the bathroom. Then I trip on Briggs and realize there are two of my sons in my room. "Will the real slim shady please stand up?"

You write so well, and think so well, and are so funny! I laughed out loud too. I can totally relate to 2 sons in the room in the middle of the night, not knowing which one I was talking to because they always caught me in the middle of my deepest sleep. You are to be given a medal!

Interesting observations about the Lisas and very funny post to boot.
