so here I am blogging. I just finished work, yes, at midnight, but ya gotta fit it in somewhere right. Anyway, I know I'm going to have a difficult time sleeping for many reason, but one being that I have been staring at the computer with my brain being teased the last 2 hours, and another being I am alone tonight. It's been a while since I have blogged about the family. I have been meaning to for a while, but like I always say, it seems like my work sucks out all of my desire to do anything else on the computer. We were able to spend time in California with Shawn's family while he was gone to Brazil. IT WAS GREAT! It was just a nice get-a-way from all of my daily chores and routines and mostly, a great change of scenery. We walked to the beach every morning either with Rick or Trudy or just us and Kaya. We mostly took it easy. We got to see Cole most nights and hang out with her...which was fabulous! Carlina went well out of her way to entertain me and the kids, and she also introduced us to some very neat treats...corn ball delight...chocolate covered pretzels...my favorite DE-caf vanilla latte....MMMMMMMMM! I have been meaning to thank you all for the kind efforts in keeping us entertained, but mostly for your company. Love you all...Rick, Trudy, Cole, Carlina, and yes, Kaya! As for the pics...they are just random, but recent. We shaved Ev's head, and I love it. Some of the pictures include my niece and nephew who my kids adore. Brecklyn is Rae's idol. She is 4, and I'm tellin ya, Raegan can't turn 4 soon enough. Everything she does through out the day is always trailed by the question: 'mom, can brecklyn do that?' OR 'mom, does brecklyn pinch her little brother?' OR 'mom, does brecklyn sleep in her own bed?' Just a few I hear A L L T H E T I M E! I'll thank Brecklyn later on in life for being the means to much of Raegans success:) Evan is absolutely adorable. Every thing he does is cute. He is talking in full sentances and loves to put me through the guilt grinder already. If I raise my voice and even attempt any sort of stern action, he gets so hurt and says, 'sorry momma'. Oh boy, this kid has me tied right around his little chubby fat sausage finger. I'm trying time-out with him, and it only took once for him to hate it. I was stern with him and told him to stay there, but he came running with big huge crocodile tears and I gave in. But, now anytime he isn't minding, all I have to say is...'you want to sit on time out?' and he says 'no' and I say 'ok, then be nice' and he says 'k momma...love you too momma'. What! We really had that exact dialogue tonight and I laughed out loud. LOVE HIM...and love this novel. Congrats to anyone who made it this far!
