Just a cute pictures of Zack.
Life is pretty good here. Not much to report. The boys are excited that they don't have school tomorrow and Shon is excited he doesn't have work tomorrow. I am excited because I get to mend pants tomorrow. Yippee for me!! Man, boys are hard on pants. How does it happen so quickly. I swear, I turn around and all their pants have holes in the knees. We'll see when I get done tomorrow how much I need to go shopping. Ty is growing so fast that I am afraid everything we have for him is just to short. See, you can tell that not much is going on if I am blogging about my boys pants situation!! How exciting am I, right?!
Tyler loves to entertain Cameron and tonight he had him laughing about as hard as we have ever heard. Zack and I were doing a puzzle and Cam was mad at me because I wouldn't let him "help". Shon put him on this chair and Ty started teasing him with an umbrella and he thought it was so funny.

Cameron's birthday was on Sunday. I am having a hard time believing he is actually one. Has it really been a whole year since I had him? Wow!! Well, we had a little party for him and he seemed to have fun. Cake and ice cream and presents!! Who wouldn't have fun, right? He's not walking yet. Seems to not be interested at all. Crawling works great, I suppose. He is actually a little bit of a chicken. But he sure is wild, just like his big brothers. He has had a bad cold, though and ear infection in both ears. Poor kid. But it seems he is on the mend so I am so glad.
I have been a little under the weather myself, so the post is a few days late. Happy Birthday Cameron!!!

Girls night near disaster

So the other night, my friend Emily and I decided that we needed a girls night to watch girlie movies and give each other pedicures. So Shon and the boys went to her house and Emily, her daughters Shaustia and Eli and her sister Heidi came over to my house. We got out the pedicure bowl and all the polishes and stuff and started High School Musical 2, which I had never seen. The babies (yes, I did keep Cameron so I could put him to bed) were just playing around and trying to get everything they weren't supposed to get. We stuff kind of all over for a while. After I had my feet, Shaustia's feet and hands and Heidi's all done, we were just about to start Emily. Shaustia said "Uh, Holly. Look at this." I looked and my heart fell to my knees. A bottle of BLACK polish had broke on the floor and got flung about 2 feet and then sat and spilled. Holy Crap!! I immediatley got some acetone and what ever else I had to try to get it out. Emily ran to her house to get what she had. We worked, not expecting too much. I actually wanted to cry, but I didnt'. We were ready to send Heidi to Walgreens to get more acetone when she remembered talking to some gals at work about using Windex to take polish out of carpet. So we tried it, figuring it couldn't hurt. WOWOWOWOW. It actually started coming out. SO Heidi went and got acetone and some more Windex. We worked for about and hour or so and were actually pretty darn impressed with how well it came out. It is actually hard. I know it is there so I see it, but Shon couldn't even tell. I had to show him. Thank goodness for Windex.
So we put in another movie and finished our toes. It was a fun night, minus the hour or so of stress.
P.S. I don't have a picture of it to post because I didn't take the time to take a picture of the mess we had at first. I can't imagine why.

Guess the boy!!

The other day I was going through some pictures that I haven't put into albums or anything and I came across a pic that if I didn't remember the circumstance, I wouldn't have been able to tell which of my boys it was. It made me realize even more that I need to label who is who on my pictures. Everyone always says that I have three little clones, but pictures really show how much they really do look alike. Can you tell who is who?

P.S. So I know you can tell which ones are scanned from photos and which are off my digital, but pretend you can't. My word I have cute boys, don't you think?
