The suspects in disguise
The evidence

The crime scene

The look of guilt?
There was some other things that got smeared. Ella's hair being one of them.
I've washed it 4 times, hopefully it will be back to normal by Sunday. I really don't want my child to be the only one in nursery with greasy, stringy hair.

Hangin' with Daddy

Patrick finally returned home from a long weekend in sunny warm Palm Springs. It was a "marketing" trip But somehow lots of golfing was involved. The kids are all so happy to have him back to tell them funny bedtime stories. They don't mind too much when he goes out of town, Its the only time ever that they get to take turns sleeping in his spot!

The sweet things my Ella says......

So lately My sweet little Ella has picked up some bad words. And when I ask my kids where she learned them from, they all point fingers at each other. The wonderful new vocabulary word Ella has picked up is butthead. Right now she calls everything a butthead her toys ,her siblings, the dog, even me! Sometimes she even throws a stupid in there. Stupid butthead. I really need to fix this problem, but I have to stop laughing first!

Chase is 4 months!

Today I took Chase to the Doctor for his well child checkup. He is 14 lbs 14oz. and 26 1/4 inches
long! He is such a happy smiling baby. He only cries alittle when hungry and tired. He sleeps from about 10pm till 5am at night. All his brothers and sisters adore him, they love to make him laugh and smile. We are so blessed to have him in our family.

Christmas and Utah

We woke up Christmas morning and Santa had come! The day got even busier from there. We went to Patrick's parents home and opened presents with them and the kids aunts and uncles (and one future aunt!). From there, we went to Great Grandmas home, who we all call Baba for breakfast with lots of family.

We then flew to Utah to visit my family. It was a good day to fly because there was no line at all! We had a great time in Utah with my family and some friends. We took a family picture, shopped, went tubing, swimming in a neighbors pool, had lots of good food and treats and enjoyed being together. The kids also saw the movie 'Bedtime Story' and really enjoyed it. We returned New Years Day. We had a very fun Christmas spending time with all of our family in Seattle and Utah!
Here are some pictures:

My new blog

Here is my experiment in journaling. I read several family and friend blogs and enjoy seeing how everyone is doing. So, I'll give it a shot too!
