Just catching up

I haven't really posted anything new lately. For that I humbly apologize. I have been reading your blogs if it makes you feel any better.
I was going to separate these into a couple of posts and then I just decided to throw them all together. I didn't group them appropriately as I was uploading them. I thought I would just organize them later, but this "thing" is being fickle and it won't let me move my pictures around. I'm basically lazy so if you get confused, I'm sorry. Well, not THAT sorry. It's not really going to be that hard for you. It's not rocket science.

Bri's 6th birthday was at the beginning of the month. (Can't believe my "baby's 6.) My parents take each grandchild out to lunch and then shopping for their gift. This year Brianna choose a set of play shoes. She brought them home and just stared at them, deciding which shoes she would try next.

My nephew, Caleb. He was just a couple of weeks old here. He slept the entire time I was babysitting. It's really not fair. My brother's two boys were/are excellent babies. If anyone should of had screaming's my brother!

When we moved in to my grandmother's (now our) house we found an old chalkboard in the basement. We always thought that we would put it up somewhere in the basement once we got it cleaned out. One night we decided it should come upstairs. It was a project that took one night not years to accomplish. I'm so proud of us!

Bri reading a card at her party. I know the picture explains it , but I just have to add a comment.

My masterpiece.

Celebrating being just a wee bit Irish

Green food coloring makes Ramen noodles just a little more fun.

We had the traditional corned beef and cabbage for dinner along with homemade bread.
Looks appetizing, doesn't it? I also made the butter green to go with the bread.
Sadly, this is pretty much the extent of my creativity.

Re : Elisabeth's Comment on my comment

Touche, Elisabeth....touche. That's all I have to say.

(I know that there is an accent over the "e" in "touche"(at least I think there is), but I don't know how to do that on the computer.)

I miss nap time...

All of my children have outgrown naptime. I, however, have not, and I miss it.
It's been quite a few years since David has taken a nap, but after an all night game night with friends from church I caught him catching some zzzzzz's on our couch this afternoon. He doesn't know I took this picture so don't tell him, okay?
