Rainy week

craft sticks that Avery spent her $ on kept them busy and getting along most of a morning!



Trey begged but Ethan wasn't about to get the hose turned on him!
and last but not least- sparkle the cat- daddy forbid them feeding her but very apparently not loving her!


We have had to find other things to do this week besides going to the pool since it has rained most of the week. We are having a pretty good summer. If anyone finds the complete solution to cutting out all sibling arguments, i would possibly give my right arm for it! It is once again challenging to get Ethan to take a nap so most days he doesn't get one...so if you see us and he is having a complete meltdown, it is probably because he is in desperate need of a nap... or else his 2 older siblings are taunting, scaring or driving him nuts. I'm convinced they thoroughly enjoy the sound of his ear piercing screams and crying/whining that follows.

Raegan has been sleeping in till at least 8:30 and even almost 9 a couple of morning...bless her little soul! Trey is usually my first one up and outside checking on the cat. insert story on cat/s: Goldie (previously seen in pictures is gone...not sure where she went but gone...new cat hanging around the kids have named Sparkle, whom Daddy has now forbid the kids to feed ever since there were 3 black cats hanging around in wait and then proceeded to do obsceen things with Sparkle in our driveway...you get the picture...enuf said...just wanted to explain why you may see a black and white kitty in pictures. Ethan will every once in awhile come hop in bed with me and watch cartoons if everyone else is still sleeping...while doing so he will lean over and give me a kiss on the cheek aor on the hand every now and then, he is such a cuddle bug...i love it! Avery could sleep till noon if there weren't 3 other kids hootin and hollerin...she usually comes draggin out around 10am.

Ok, I just left you a msg on Facebook about your blogging there and the same are here. How'd you do that? Can you copy and paste from one to the other? That's cool that you can do it on Facebook also.

I haven't checked the blog for a while. All your pics are so cute as always!!!

...'til 10:00am??? Yeah, you aren't gonna want to have Emma over any time soon for a sleep over since she pops up by 6:30-7:00am. She HAS to be quiet so the rest of us can sleep. That's the rule..

Cute post :-) I also wanted to mention that I'm reading a really good book right now called "Siblings Without Rivalry"...I'm only on the 4th chapter, but it's really good! I'm so sick (already) of all the fighting in my house, so I hope to learn a few tips and tricks from this book.
