It's a new year

It is a new year and I have decided to post an update on the craziness in our lives at least once a week.

So what have we been up to? Well for the holidays we loaded up the van and drove to NC, North Carolina that is...With all four kids in tow! Yes we are crazy. No we did not lose anyone, or have to "stop the car." Surprisingly or not, everyone did GREAT on the drive and I think had fun. We took three days going to NC and spent half a day at the Georgia Aquarium (sorry I didn't call Renee). Rehm was of course in heaven and we all really had fun. I'll add pictures next week. On the way home we just drove and drove and drove and drove :) Two of our nights in hotels we did not have cribs! That of course was a little bit interesting but we managed just fine. My favorite quote from the trip was from Rehm. As we were parking the van to go to the aquarium he said "Um, Mommy what language do they mostly speak in Georgia?"

Now that we are home everyone is getting back into our normal routine. We are almost finished getting the Christmas decorations down! Yeah, I know it is late but what do you expect?

Our other excitement right now is growing Aquasaurs. Rehm received them for Christmas. From his parents - I managed to loose them the first time I bought them and had to purchase a second set. Then we had to have a desk lamp to help regulate the temperature. Finally, way too many dollars later, we are raising baby Aquasaurs. Rehm was very funny. After we had added the eggs to the water he got a funny look on his face and said "Oh no! in one to three days I'm going to be a parent!" He didn't sound so excited about them then.

Well Charlotte wants me to play with her and Ruby is crying so I guess it is time to go. Posted by Picasa
