Some of you are probably wondering if I died by flu, but no, I have recovered! Thank you for asking, my regular readers! It's good to be considered. I did have that nasty respritory flu, but I was thankfully the only one in the house to have it. I was down for a good week, then it took another to recover. I'm still coughing on occasion, but back up and running as of last week and feeling pretty good. Our week since has been booked, lots of playing to catch up on....and my fabulous in-laws came this weekend. I must brag here, they are so much fun! When we get together, there is a LOT of playing and resting. I didn't cook the entire time they were here! Fabulous! Mom and I went to the spa, I got a much needed facial and lunch at Crouton's (mmmmm)! The guys went golfing...there were walks and bike rides, trip to the park and a treat for the boys @ McD's. We saw a movie from the 60's...Gamera, about a monster turtle that tried to take over Japan until, of course, all nations cooperated in sending the turtle to mars in a rocketship. Perfect! My MIL also put highlights in my hair and did a FABULOUS job, I love it. (Serious overusage of the word Fabulous here). I cannot, however send a photo, as my camera is BROKEN!!!! I will remedy this soon, but I missed a million good photo ops this my Nate riding his bike on two wheels!! What a kid! It's been great, and Eli totes along on his diego bike w/ training wheels. Joe is almost too fancy for himself on his bike now, riding offroads in the housing lot that's dirt and rock up the street. Yeah for dirt. I just love these squeezy boys.

Last week we made a trip to BIG R (where my dad now works in the machine mainanance and service dept) to see the shipment of baby chicks....or "chips" as Eli calls them. So yummy cute. They'd look so cute in an Easter basket, if only they didn't poop and stayed so little...and Tucker wouldn't pounce on them and have them for breakfast.

This is a pic of Joey at swim lessons yet again, our favorite winter sport, who has now nearly mastered the high dive...and Nate doing his back float, all belly.

Nate got a toy turtle for Christmas, which he has kindly named "turd." It's all I can do to keep my giggles in when he says, "I'm going to play with Turd." Like they need yet another new "potty" word. As it is, I'm constantly reigning them in....their "spanish" word for penis...."wenis." OF COURSE it needs a spanish word!

This weekend I'm so happy to announce that I'm going to a women's retreat at my church....for the first time in years w/o a baby. I'm really stinking excited (way more than my sweet hubby is) and will give you an update later. Until I have more rattling around in my head to share....

No spell check...sorry folks.

Okay, your catch up is totally cracking me up... what it is about boys and potty humor??? Mine are so the same. I am relieved that you are still kicking and doing so with humor! Have a great ladies retreat! I jsut got back from ours and I gotta say, God is so wise in how he puts things together from apparent chaos... Anyhoo- have a great week!

Yay that you're better! And it seems that I myself haven't outgrown potty humor because I laughed and laughed about the turtle and the spanish word and even read it all aloud to Jan Michael :)
