Uncle Alan brought the boys a Spider-man thing to go on their window Christmas. I just got around to putting it up today.
Now Uncle Alan, Levi would like a Batman and Abbie is requesting a princess. Lets see if you can come up with these. HAHA!
Here is a picture of the boys hair cuts. I normally don't cut it like this until the weather is warmer. I just could not take the pancake syrup in the hair any more. It is a lot easier to get out now!
I have a real problem with Abbie, she wants her hair cut like this. Sorry princess, not happening!
Everybody is in bed... YEA! I am soon to follow. Just wanted to get on here and add a few pictures.
I got my Christmas present (from momma) back from being framed today. It is now hanging in my living room. I LOVE it! What do you think? Levi was not impressed, he wanted to know what happened to them.

I think it looks really good.
I made a few pictures of the monkeys tonight. They get excited when I go to make pictures. They get to dancing around, jumping up and down. Makes it really hard to get a picture of them I am going to have to start getting more candid photos of them. This is not working.
Just so you know, Levi is not that short. He was getting ready to jump when I got the picture.
OK - off to bed.

Everybody is sleeping all night again - except me. Something about them being asleep seems to wake me up. It is 4:25 in the morning right now!
No fever, lots of coughing and snot. I am so ready for these colds to be gone. I think we are going to cut down on going anywhere. We did today and they did fine until they realized we didn't go to town just to get them a toy. Nope sorry. This started a melt down, with the boys. But Abbie thought they needed some help. So all 3 screaming their heads off. This attracts a lot of attention. They never act like this when we go some where, I am blaming it on the colds. If it is not the colds they may never go anywhere again. I can't handle that. Plus they can't handle it either, it could cause sore fanny's. Yea right, they look at me like I have lost my mind when I threaten them, they are so scared of me.
So far the gate is working. I think I have only picked up 1 blanket in the living room, no toys. YEA!!! I don't remember the last time my living room has stayed this clean with them at home.
I need to clean the carpet one day. I am hoping the carpet cleaner has the same effect that the vacuum does on them. They hate it. They think it is going to get them. I LOVE it. Vacuuming is the quietest time around here. If I have a head ache, I drag out the vacuum. Sounds strange, but they get on the couch and watch me. They don't talk, yell or fight. It is so quite!
I need to clean the whole house. It has never had a good cleaning. We moved in on Thanksgiving weekend in 2004. Then we found out I was pregnant in April 2005. Then we found out there was 3!!! No cleaning after that. And it really has not been done since then. No time, I do good just getting the dinning room swept. I really wish we had a dog and then I would not have to worry about that. I think I would name it Hoover! But Mike says there are enough live "things" in this house now, not adding to it! I was looking at the lights in our bath room. They look sort of furry, lots of dust collected on them. I quit looking after that. Well I am hoping that I might be able to get one room a month, clean it really good. and just start over when I am finished, that way it would stay done. I miss the days when I would just start on on end and go to the other and everything was done. I can spend a day just straightening up the monkeys rooms. Oh well, some day!
I am ready for spring! I am hoping they will be old enough this year that I can leave them in the fenced in yard and I can work in the yard. Nothing has been done in our yard. I put out a few shrubs, which Mike has killed, before we found out about the trips. But that was it. I want flowers and it to look decent. Mike thinks if the grass is cut once a month nothing else needs to be done. WRONG! I want to rake all these leaves up, make a good fire. If it were not supposed to be so cold tomorrow I might get that done. Like I said - some day!
OK - I am heading back to bed. Maybe I can get back to sleep a little bit before they start crawling out!
