Friday night started out rough for Bethany, but after a good meal of a quarter of a hotdog and bun, she was ready for some fun. Naomi and Jacob were, as always, raring to go!
This past Thursday was the long-awaited Lookout Mountain Elementary Carnival. The big kids had a blast! Bethany, not so much. The above pic is of the wagon ride right before Bethany started screaming.
And, as always, their favorite, the JAIL.

It was Gardner and Rebecca's b'day on Sunday, so we celebrated with candles and home-made hats. Naomi is really enjoying going through Little House in the Big Woods with these girls. This week we had a dance party, drew animal tracks, tasted hasty pudding, and bought toys at a play store. Next week we're going to read an on-line counting book about things found in the Little House books and reenact a fighting scene between Laura and Mary. We're also planning to take a trip to a local farm!

My oven sparkles!!! My mom cleaned my oven while keeping my kids while I was at the beach. Amazing, I know. You are free to be as jealous as you want. : ) She forgot to take a before picture, but it's easy to imagine, just insert the color black everywhere you see this wonderful blue-grey color now. THAT was what my oven looked like before. Thanks, Mom!

A blog that I frequent is having a "blogoversary" and celebrating by having other bloggers link up with their stories about how they are THAT kind of family as well. You know what it means: THOSE kind of things always happen to THAT kind of family. Yes, we're one of those too. I decided to look back through our pics and find the funny/silly/dorky ones to post. I think these pics show up in our family's blog on a regular basis, but they make for a good laugh here all together. Sure, we have our stories of bloody noses, cracked skulls, and self-hair cuttings (those particular examples were all in one week as I recall!) but the pics tell a story all of their own! (Disclaimer: there are a LOT more silly pics of this writer, but they usually get destroyed very quickly and so are currently unavailable to be laughed at; sorry about that!)
Go on over to We are THAT Family and check out other stories of THESE kind of families!
