Five on Friday & Birthday Wishes

1. I know, I know, there was no ten on tuesday this week. I've had a very crazy week, which involved 6 hours in the car (a visit to Chuck's family in KY), a trip to Urgent Care (for me-laryngitis), 9 hours in the back room of a focus group facility (again me-for work), losing power at our church and kids screaming (ours and all of my Puggle kids), a trip to the doctor (Chuck-same thing I have), a trip to the hair salon (me-color and cut), and finally, breaking out in hives (Jarron-still not sure why). So instead you get five on Friday.

2. Today is Chuck's birthday! He's 34 today, so if you see him be sure to wish him a Happy Birthday. I know he reads this sometimes, so I hope he knows how much the boys and I love and appreciate him. We are so, so lucky to have him in our lives.

Love this picture of Chuck and the boys

3. The boys had a great weekend filled with horseback riding, 4-wheelers (going extremely slow), swimming pools, and fun with the Kentucky cousins. They only get to see Logan and Tate a couple of times a year, but they have so much fun together-you'd think they hang out all the time. Brody even got in on the action-taking his first dip in the hotel swimming pool. For the record-the pool was not heated-so he literally got dipped in for the pictures and came right back out into his warm, comfy robe.

4. Moosey had to go to the doctor last week during the crazy freak snowstorm (we got another 6 inches of snow -that had NOT been predicted, it took Chuck 3 HOURS to get home that night-not fun!). He weighed 16 pounds 2 ounces! Yes, you read that right. SIXTEEN pounds! He gained nearly a whole pound in a week and a half. The kid loves those jars of baby food. A lot!

5. Some fun facts for you:
Number of pictures taken in February-177-I kid you not. And we are not even half way through the month.
Number of times I have been in a doctor's office of some sort in the last 3 weeks: 3
Number of inches of snow we had on the ground at one time: about 14 (and an inch of ice)
Number of jars of baby food Moosey eats in a day: 4-5
Number of times Jackson has been on punishment from video games this week: 2 (sigh)
Number of valentines I bought this week: 72 (fortunately I only had to address 24 of them)
Number of hours I have spent trying to figure out how to do 2nd grade math: 3 (at least-and I still don't get it)

Have a great weekend!
