8 years of Catch up For Darcy

This is Jacob(the one in orange) and Ammon.
This is Mary the pickpocket.
Olivia the Brave.
Donna the Princess
Michael the Man holding Ammon the small.

William and I had Michael and you met Donna briefly.  Michael and Donna are big elementary school kids.  Michael was baptized a few months ago and Donna just turned 7.

Next, Olivia came along.  She's in Kindergarten now and then we found she needed glasses.  She's tough, like Casey and very smart but a bit of a trouble maker at school.  Olivia will follow me anywhere I go.  She is brave because she catches and squashes spiders whereas her siblings run and cry.

Mary is our little pick pocket.  She loves electronic games.  It doesn't matter what it is, she'll play it. She steals my iPhone out of my pocket to play the games.  She's a good big sister.

Jacob we've been waiting for.  We had his name picked out since before there was Olivia.  He's almost two but he's already very busy.  He wrinkles his nose when he smiles.

Ammon was a surprise.  His name means hidden one.  We didn't know we were pregnant with him until after the first trimester.  Still, he's healthy and happy and getting fat like a good baby.  Oh yeah, and he's irresistible.

Happy Birthday Olivia!

My little Whooby turned 5!  She got a nifty sprinkler thing to play with outside.  She got new sandals that fit her, not Donna.  Daddy took her to Build A Bear in the Mustang and got her a new stuffed dog that barks and has a heart beat.  She got a frosty from Wendy's afterward. She played Wii while waiting for dinner.  After dinner and chocolate cherry cake she unwrapped her very first necklace.  It's a kitty necklace.  She loves kitties.  She got a nice message from Grandma that she smiled at.  She didn't have to do ANY chores all day long but she got to take a Winder jug out to the box outside.  She had a pretty good day.

Happy Belated Father's Day

I ordered William's Father's Day present online hoping it would be delivered in time.  Of course, no, it wasn't.  Oh well, it was worth the wait.  I showed William what I ordered on the computer on Sunday so he would be able to look forward to it.  It arrived yesterday.  I was so excited.  Now our bed is all pretty and it didn't cost too much.  I think William likes it but I know he could think of several things he would have rather have gifted to him.  Still this bed set was on clearance and is really nice.  Now I'm more motivated to make the bed!  Happy Belated Father's Day to all the Dads!

Second Vehicle Option

Time is ticking down fast.  We decided that a second vehicle will not only give me a little freedom but we don't have to buy a bigger expensive vehicle that'll guzzle gas like a sailor guzzles brew.  Something more economical for William to drive to work and school and church is what we need. So what do you think about this beaut?  It has 200,000 miles, its a 1990-ish honda civic.  The owner said it needs a new transmission and a key for the ignition.  For just $300 it's ours if we tow it off the drive way!

Sickitty sick sick sick

I don't think I've ever thrown up in any six month time period as much as I've thrown up the past 6 months.  I got sick again!  This time it was a nasty flu bug.  It sure wipes me out.  Sorry I missed you all in Denver!
