Tim forced me to let him buy rock band when we were shopping at Target on day. Yeah, he really had to talk me into it ;) We have been having a lot of fun with it since. So far we have had Carrie and Johnny and Heidi and Jeremiah over to play with us. This game is addicting... and worth every penny. I have to send a shout out to Lynn and Julee for introducing us to this game.

I noticed that the photos of Mike's mauling last Monday didn't look that bad... but it was. These were taken the next day, Tuesday. It was like he knew I was taking evidence of his wounds... I love his sad face in them! The scabs are about gone now, but I think there might be slight scarring for a while. "How did he get those?"..." Oh his sister mauled him!!"
I missed this little girl. She brings a lot of personality in our home. David and Tricia, aka Papa and Gamama, dropped Abbey off at home last Wednesday afternoon. She was really excited to be home with mom and was in a really good mood. In fact, she was in such a good mood she let me take some fun photos of her. She had finished going to the bathroom and pulled her tights up over her dress. It was too funny and cute. But mostly I enjoyed her hamming it up for the camera... very rare.

(this was conference weekend, after we saw the neighbor's horses and were driving back to Tim's parents to put Abbey down for a nap)
Let me translate for you... she mentions that the horses are not to get out, she tells them bye and to go to sleep (sleepy), she says she is going home and tells us about feeding the ducks, she says she loves mom (mommies), she says she is going to take a nap and go to sleep (sleepy) so mommy can go on a date! (I don't know how she got that idea!, maybe because I was telling her that she was going to stay with Grandma and we were going to go home?!? - a date?)
To feel like what I have said to her has sunken in... I always end with "Okay" and wait for her to tell me "tay." She has gotten in a very bad habit of telling someone something and then saying "tay!" I think we are going to have to put her in some speech therapy... she didn't qualify for the free therapy the state gives... so does anyone know of any other programs?
