I got up at 5am to go to the gym and was back, dressed and ready for the day at 6:30. I've also done two lessons in my Bible study (I'm behind), had breakfast and coffee. It's only 8:30am; this is truly a record of some sort. It's amazing what I can get done if I get up early, i.e. before the kids. Let's hope this continues! I've realized that I AM the fat friend, so I'm on a quest to lose this awful "depression drug-induced" fat!

Anyway...on to the pictures!
Caleb's 3rd Birthday. He got to choose one present to open that morning. It was a backpack and matching lunchbox. Not very exciting for a 3-year-old, so he wanted another present. :-)
His family birthday party at GattiTown. Here he is with two of his presents...a bicycle helmet and Little Einsteins laptop...

Levi's First Birthday! I don't have a picture of him eating the cake (maybe my mom does), but here he is with pizza. :-)

Levi at Caleb's party...
Caleb had his party at an inflatable fun house. We combined his party with a friend of his whose birthday was the same week...same friends to invite, only one party to attend!

Here's Levi with his BFF, Caroline. She is two weeks older than him and both sets of parents would be fine if they grew up and married each other. :-) They're adorable!

Levi hiding BEHIND the entertainment center. He's going to be a handful!

I'll post soon the pictures from our cruise. If I can find any that don't involve me in a swimsuit that is!

Where Has the Time Gone?

The last few weeks have been a little crazy around here. After my last post, Justin and I went on a cruise. It was WONDERFUL!!! We're firm believers that our marriage is the most important relationship in the house and it needs constant attention. We're also blessed that my parents could keep the boys for a week. (My mom needed a vacation after that!) We sailed to Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel. It was great, and I even got a little tan. And lots of sleep. (Not a lot since because the boys are back! Why couldn't we have kids that sleep??)

Levi is fully walking now. And he's fast! He still isn't talking much...well, he isn't saying much that we actually understand, but verbal he is. And loud. Very loud.

He also has no teeth. 13 months and not a single tooth. The doctor says that they don't worry about them having no teeth until they're two. I think that's weird, but it means Levi is normal, so whatever.

We got official word that the move to Singapore will happen next July. LOTS to do before then! We had a garage sale this weekend to start the purge process. It felt good.

Well, off to bed until one of the boys wakes up for unknown reasons. I'll try to get some pictures of our vacation and some recent ones of the boys up here soon.

Just wondering if anyone knows how to get diaper cream out of carpet. It's Desitin original, the really thick, greasy stuff. I love age 3.

While I was on the phone, Caleb was in the other room emptying a tube of diaper cream all over himself and the carpet. It might be funny in a few days. Right now it just makes me angry because on Monday he smeared a container of Laughing Cow cheese (the soft kind) into the carpet.

Our carpet is already nasty from the dogs and juice spills and who knows what else, and we're going to have to replace it anyway before we put it on the market, but SERIOUSLY I'm tired of cleaning stuff out of it!!!

So, how do I get the stuff out?
