There are so many small things going on here… and no big things – I thought I would just take a moment to catch us up.

Still Loving Dress Up
1. I taught the kids a new phrase yesterday. “Daddy has an addiction problem.” Hehe. Ray mentioned that it was Friday and there would be yardsales out. I said, “Stop spending money! You have an addiction problem!” And… what do I hear from the backseat? Yup…. A little chorus of “Daddy has an addiction problem.” Did I mention that I’m still laughing over here.

2. We are filming for the seizure dog. How weird is it to be shopping for groceries while Ray follows us around with a camera narrating our actions? I mean… people are starting to stare. I think they imagine that we are trying to get on some sort of “help me with my 3 screaming kids” reality show. Honestly. I saw a friend from the way back in the way back through a guy I used to date. He never even said hi. I’m sure it was because of the camera… definitely not because he didn’t recognize me ‘cause I’m not my 100ish lb self anymore.

3. On that topic.. I’ve lost right around 15-20lbs. I was at 15, then I went on vacation and now I’m back on track. This is not the news story of the night. *sigh* I broke my 4th blender today. I don’t think it is a stretch to say Ray is not thrilled. Apparently it’s not the easiest for a blender to grind up frozen strawberries for a smoothie. And when I say I broke it.. I mean – I broke the gears in it. Oops! I’m off to get another one tomorrow and I’m going to have to think of a new plan because I’m on blender lock down.

Those "scopes" are flutes
4. In payback for #1 … we were having a sing – a – long last night. You know… where the kids sing Veggie Tales songs or I start a song, etc. They asked Ray to teach them a song. Any guesses? “Girl, Don’t go away mad. Girl, Just go away.” I’m not gonna lie. It was funny. But we really have to watch it with our little repeaters. Here is how I imagine Sunday at church going.
Addison: “My daddy has an addiction problem.”
Pastor: “Oh yeah? Well maybe I should go talk to him about this.”
Andrew bursts into the room: “Girl! Don’t go away mad! Girl… Just go away!”
We find a new church…..

5. Speaking of new things. We are full fledged potty training around here. Ever try potty training twins at the same time? I believe I’ve said this before, but I will say it again… It’s a wonder I don’t drink. We are really interested in how everything works. There is a lot of motivational speaking. There is a lot of clapping. If someone’s on there too long – you might just get a sympathy hug or we’ve had to remind unnamed people to get their heads out of the way. Someone is definitely going to get peed on… and I’m pretty sure it will be me. Andrew did learn how to do the big boy shake and he is thrilled with this new accomplishment. If you don’t know what that is… ask your dad.

6. Finally … we are having a ton of fun around here. I have pictures galore… I’m just too tired to edit them and post the details of our adventures.
Here are a few more Random Pictures....

Too stinkin' Cool for Words

Have you thought about either an industrial strength blender (which I'm sure Ray would be thrilled about) or maybe one of those Rocket or Bullet things that blends one serving worth? They have them at Kohl's down here. I love that you've been through 4 blenders - it's a sign of commitment!

We bought a Kenmore blender from Sears, and although it's not Vitamix, it's doing a good job. Frozen strawberries and all. I'm saying this, because it comes with a 5 year warranty, and we used the warranty once. We returned the broken one and came home with a brand new shiny one. Hassle free.
Just a thought.
