Thought for the Day

Fake eggs have no taste, but, apparently, have protein. Figure that one out!

I couldn't do it, I couldn't eat them....yuck!

Anyone Want a 4 Year Old??

Wow! My precious little Ella. She is the cuddliest little thing, when she is not screaming, jumping up and and down, screaming, stamping her foot, screaming, whining and did I mention screaming? I will be so glad when she is out of this stage. (Is it still a stage when it has lasted for 18 months??)

I don't know, maybe it is just because she is the youngest and feels like she isn't heard unless she is screaming. Maybe it is just because she is the most stubborn of the crew, also a product of being the youngest, I am guessing.

She is amazing when she and I go shopping. Not only does she not touch anything, but she doesn't ask for anything either. She LOVES to laugh and sing (and often does it as loudly as she screams!) I am grateful she leaves the fits at home, for the most part.

Sweet, little curly haired, big blue eyed, Ella. Looks are deceiving.

Computer Issues computer seems to have a bug. Grrrrr...... I have Spybot and and anti-virus. What's up with this??? I did take all my pics of yesterday, close to 12 Gs. That helped to speed the old guy up a bit, but the internet still freezes up on me. A lot. Sigh.....

While Kevin's Away.....

Kevin is in Florida. Picking up Jose and his boys. Yes, after countess months, Pastor Jose is finally in the United States. I cannot tell you the relief when we found out that he was able to visit! We thought he'd come last week. He didn't and I take complete responsibility. Why? I commented several times, that I was glad that, if Kevin had to be gone for several days, that at least it would be over spring break. Guess what...THIS week is spring break. All 5 kids. 24/7.

We've been busy. Yesterday, I took all 5 kids to see a movie. By MYSELF! Because I'm an idiot. Because that's the kind of mom I am. We saw "Monsters vs. Aliens." Very cute. And everyone was happy as long as the food lasted!

Today a friend from church helped me to take the kids to the Cincinnati Museum Center. We had a lot of fun. Although, sadly, Gracie is kind of getting too old for the Children's Museum. And Ella is too young for much of the Natural History Museum. So is Risi.

According to the kids, one of the highlights of today was lunch! LOL! We ate in the huge rotunda area. And they had ground hog. At least that is what Charis called it. (By the way, it was corn dogs, not ground hog!)
