We got robbed last night.


Someone stole my Kroger brand Moon Pie ice cream right out of the deep freeze in our garage. There were 3 cars in our driveway, 8 people in our house (counting kids), and between 9 and 10 last night someone (hopefully kids) came into our open garage, got in the deep freeze, stole my ice cream and I'm not sure what else, and put a quart of buttermilk surrounded by 6 chicken nuggets on top of Nathan's car.

I might think it was kinda funny except I was really looking forward to tasting that ice cream.

What is this world coming to?

Catching Up...

We'll see how far I get on this blog before I have to tend to someone. Firstly, I need to say a Happy Belated 30th birthday to Nathan! He turned 30 on the 24th of February. I had already planned a little party and with the help of friends and family we were able to pull it off. John Paul invited him to hang out with the guys on the Saturday before his birthday. They went skeet shooting. I made Nathan think that was his celebration. While he was gone we had our family & the wives come over and surprised him when he got back. My mom and I made food and we had a good time visiting with everyone. He told me several times how much fun he had, so I was happy. I wish it could have been bigger, with more people, but that was all I could manage this year. I thought Kaleigh had ruined the surprise the night before when she told him "my friends are coming to your party" but he said he didn't even notice her saying that. I didn't even tell her about it, but she heard me talking on the phone to someone!

The next thing I want to blog about is the twins. They have been getting therapy for a year, and just had a reevaluation and no longer qualify. This is such a good thing even though we will miss Stacy coming and working with them. They have just been doing great though. They've really started talking a lot in the past month. They use quite a few words intentionally and repeat loads of words. Some that they say are Mommy, Daddy, Nana, Mimi, Papaw, Poppa, cheese, cracker, stinky, doggy, ball, more, baby, bear & bye-bye. It's so much fun to watch them interact. They really play together but one minute they will be fighting and hitting each other and the next they are kissing and hugging.

Emory is still eating and sleeping tons so while it has been a lot of work, I think it may get a little harder before it gets easier once she is awake more. I've been so blessed to have my mom come to help out a lot but she started working on the census this week so I'm going to be on my own more. Nathan's mom ended up getting sick after keeping our sick ones and is just now getting well. She's always good to lend a hand when I need it. I know that God has given us a wonderful support system to help with all our little blessings.

The pictures I'm posting were taken Saturday by our friend Elizabeth. She was mostly trying to get Emory but we also wanted some of the other girls. The twins are so hard to photograph right now but I think she captured their personalities pretty well! They are busy busy!
