Today has been a great day. With the exception of Levi being in melt down mode. He was up late last night and up early this morning=melt down! We went to town with granny this morning. Then Alan, Cheryl, Emily & Jonathan came over for supper tonight. We really enjoyed them coming! We are planning to go to church tomorrow. Then I think we are going to spend the rest of the day out side! It is supposed to be around 74 degrees tomorrow. But just when you think that the weather is getting better... Don't get your hopes up to much...
Sunday: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1pm. Cloudy, with a high near 74. Calm wind becoming south between 5 and 10 mph.
Sunday Night: Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly before 1am. Cloudy, with a low around 44. South wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west. Chance of precipitation is 60%.
Monday: A slight chance of showers before 1pm. Cloudy, with a high near 50. Breezy, with a west wind between 15 and 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
Monday Night: A chance of rain showers before 10pm, then a chance of flurries between 10pm and 4am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 28. West wind between 10 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.

Oh well, maybe it won't do any of the above, it will be in the 70's and sunny & we can get outside and enjoy the days. I know I am getting obsessive about the weather but when the monkeys get used to going out side and then they can't I have to explain to them why and if they don't like my explanation, it is not good.
Today is my cousin David's birthday! I have bee trying to come up with how old he is in my head...not sure. But anyway HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID! Here are a few pictures I found.

Speaking of pictures, In my "spare" time I am going to start scanning all the old pictures I have and also moms and put them on disk for everyone. I enjoy looking at the few I have so I thought everyone else would like to also.

I have been meaning to do this and since I have the scanner out I will now.The Black & white is me. The color is Abbie. I think she looks like me, what do you think.
Bed time!

Andy got his cast off today. After they took it off he had a fit... He wanted it back! I think it was sore. He would sit there and just rub it. He has to keep it in a sling for the next 10 days. I am hoping by then it is not hurting so bad! I got to see the x-ray today. You could see where the bone was healing so it was fractured. He was so sweet. When we left we went to WM to get him something. Well we had to get Abbie & Levi something also! It is to bad they can't be that sweet to each other when they are together!

Well it is raining AGAIN! Watches & warnings, the whole nine yards! I am ready for the SUN. It will take a couple off weeks to dry everything out around here!

I'm heading to bed!

We got to go out side today! In the mud!
But we did get out. Everyone was in a much better mood. Even with the mud. They were so cute when we came back in. Mike asked me if I noticed Abbie had a mustache? Yep, mud everywhere. Bath time was fun tonight. But SO SO SO worth it!

Tomorrow Andy has to go back to the doctor. I am hoping that they will tell us that his arm is all better! If it is not, I want to see another doctor. I have a hard time trusting this man. He reminds me of Mr Noodle (add about 20 years) on Sesame Street's Elmo's world. The bow tie does not help. Right now if they tell me it is still not well, it has been over 3 weeks, I am going to ask for a copy of everything and going to go see Dr Coleman. I trust her. See what she has to say. But I am trying to not worry about that tonight.

Tomorrow there is a 60% chance of rain. That means we really will be needing to plant rice in the yard. It is unreal how wet everything is here! If Mike even mentions drought anytime soon I think I will clobber him! And he will, I think that is just one of those things when you work at a water plant! Speaking of which, tonight is Mike's Friday! I am so glad he will be home for a few days (nights)!

Off to bed!

Today has been a LONG day. It has been raining AGAIN! We could not get out side. Tomorrow, if it is raining we will be on the carport! If they get wet, well they will just get wet. We have got to get out some. They can ride their tricycles and write with the side walk chalk.

Other than the monkeys getting into things they were supposed to stay out of it has been quite today.

Have a good one!

I am not sure if you have noticed, but there is a link to a blog on the top left of this page. http://stepsforbrady.blogspot.com/ This blog is about a little boy who has Neuroblastoma, a form of cancer. He is not 2 years old yet and fighting for his life. I read every night to see how he is doing.
Tonight I am sitting here in tears. I can't even imagine if this was one of my monkeys!
Please when you say your prayers tonight include Brady & his family in your prayers. Thanks!
Last night when granny & pop left we had to go out on the porch so the monkeys could wave bye. After they played some I told them it was time to go in. I should have known something was up when Levi took off fr the door. Normally I have to tell the more times than I care to remember! But Levi took off into the house, closed the door and locked the dead bolt! Leaving Abbie, Andy & me on the porch. No keys and no phone. Andy & Abbie were not happy! I kept telling Levi to unlock the door. It took a few mins but he did. When we got inside I was getting on to him, I had lots of help. Anyway once again I will be carrying keys out with me from now on.

We have been using the potty today. It is after 2, I have cleaned up pee 3 times. Not to bad, but the fact that when they pee they are not still. I am not sure yet how the manage to get it everywhere. But I just pulled out the pull ups. I can only handle so much. I know some folks say pull ups don't work, but they have to for some or they would not sell as many as they do. Oh well, we'll see.

Levi is not having a good day today. I am not sure why but major melt downs. One was because daddy left. One was because there was more than one spider man on the pillow case...take it off. Sorry I can't do that = meltdown. His melt downs are about things I can't do anything about. I think they are just spoiled, do ya think?

I just had to go find them pillowcases so they could "misappear". They get in the pillow case and tell me they have misappeared. If it makes them happy I can deal with it.

I wanted us to go out side today. It is about 60 degrees and pretty. BUT the ground is so mushy. You mar up in mud in some spots and they would be able to find everyone of them. That is something I really don't want to have to deal with to day.

I better get in there and see what they are up to now!
