Chuck E. Cheese & Up-Chucking

I will never again go to Chuck E. Cheese on a weekend. It was insanely crowded and I got sneezed on by a stranger...twice.
What a Dad! Earning tickets for the kids so they can use all 300 of them to trade for a roll of smarties and a temporary tatoo.

It was fun to have more cousins around. Here's Audrey and Isabelle with their cousin Madi & Ailia.

Chuck E. Cheese made Dan so claustrophobic and germaphobic that he had to check himself into the hospital. Just kidding. He actually had a double hernia surgery. Yikes! He really did NOT like me taking pictures of him! There wasn't a lot he could do about it though. He said he felt so not-manly being in a hospital! Silly. But, he's in a bad way right now...cooped up in bed, unable to move without feeling like is stomach is being ripped apart. I just had to hold the pitcher for him on the edge of the bed while he went pee. It's pretty sad to see him feeling so crappy. But, luckily he's got Shane who sneaks off to say prayers for him. And here I am teasing him that I am finally "in THE mood". He does not like that.

Dear Blog, I've been cheating on you...

It's true. I've strayed. That's why I've been gone so long...doing the hanky panky with another blog. I will still be updating my family happenings here, but all recipes, favorites, and random ideas will be on my new blog. Check it out. It's fun. It will be updated every day with a new idea.

Anyway...there has been a huge lull in my picture taking. But, here's a couple of winners that were taken by the kids. It's fun to pick up the camera and look at all the ridiculous pictures they have been taking. I've got pictures of most Spongebob espisodes, all the spiders in Caden's spider books, and Shane's white bum. What else do I need?

I know what you're going to say. No, I did not do it. A chair did.
