This week

-Fred wrote a great blog post.  To read it, click here.
-We had pictures made this week while at a family function.  My sweet nephew was sad that he wasn't in our picture.  So, I picked him up for a quick photo op with just the two of us.  Before my sister in law could snap the picture all the boys in attendance were around me.  Really, is that not the sweetest group of boys you've ever seen?!?
-The big boys have been fussing and fighting this week.  It has worn me out.  I finally lost it.  In my rant I remember telling them that they were not Congress.  They needed to figure out a way to get along.  I also told them we were not a democracy in this house.  We were all on the same team, but dad and I were the autocratic leaders.  Figure out a way to get along.  Figure it out people!!  (I was on a serious roll!!)  They must have listened because they started to get along.  Thank goodness. 
-This cutie pulled his own tooth this week.  He informed me that since he pulled it himself (I usually pull teeth. I love it!) he should get paid more.  Funny kiddo.
 -The boys gave me flowers this week for my birthday.  I knew they were giving me flowers the day before my birthday because Andrew said in one long sentence..."You know what we are giving you for your birthday? Flowers!"  You must read it all in one breath, because that's how he said it.  Jack and I protested, but it just rolled off his tongue.  It was awesome.
-Andrew built this high dive (his words, not mine) at story hour.  He told me it was a high dive like at Holiday World.  I told him I was going to get his picture beside it to show dad.  He asked me to wait before getting his picture.  He picked up the dinosaur and then said he was ready.  I think the dinosaur really completes the picture.
