So, dinner time is usually an interesting event. R took these photos of the kids during dinner the other night--they were being particularly silly that night. Here is C--he's into making faces for the camera.

S loves to smile for the camera

And MK sits in the bouncy seat while we eat. Don't you just love those big blue eyes?

The Good News And The Bad News

So, the good news is that our tub is no longer clogged. You know how annoying it is when you take a shower and end up standing in water up to your calf because the drain is clogged or just draining REALLY slowly. We've been dealing with it. It would drain, just would take a while. Saturday night, the tub finally wouldn't drain anymore. R did his best in trying to clear it, but it just caused the toilet to clog. We were thinking, "Well, at least we have the bathroom downstairs that we can use. Good thing, huh?" Do you see where this is going?

And the bad news--It started to rain in our downstairs bathroom.

We had to have a plumber come Saturday night at 11pm. He was there until 1 am. Then, a disaster repair company came Sunday morning and proceeded to cut away the ceiling and wall in the downstairs bathroom (you know, the bathroom we JUST did) and pulled up some carpet in the boys bedroom right next to the bathroom (Yeah, that carpet we JUST laid down 2 days before Christmas.)

The kids are having slumber parties in MK's room.

The Attack of Facebook

So, apparently all my family and friends are on Facebook and have massed a huge campaign to get me on there as well. Yesterday, I got online and check out my email and I found that I had 20 (and no, I'm not exaggerating) as in twenty, 2-0, 20 emails saying that "so-and-so" has added me as a friend on Facebook. Today, there were an additional 12 emails.

I'm glad to have friends, but now I'm feeling ganged up on. Didn't my mom always tell me to not give into peer pressure? (But I got one from my mom, too.)

Is it only a matter of time until I sucumb? Who knows. It took my sister over a year to get me on to Blogspot and do a family blog.
