Pics

This is what I saw when I looked out back yesterday afternoon. He dug the hole himself. Then he sat in it. And he is the 'normal' one. (Notice the missing front tooth. Too cute!)

I've been churning out mittens like crazy and of course it is now 70 degrees here. Always a day late and a dollar short. (These are super easy. If you want the pattern, just ask!)
Saturday was super-duper house cleaning day. The kind of day where I pick a part of the house and everything in it gets a good scrubbing. Everything from light fixtures to baseboards. Of course this involves all members of the family. To motivate the wee ones we pay them for each completed chore and at the end of the day we take them to the dollar store to spend their earnings. As expected, some are motivated much better than others. here is the run-down:

Very motivated. Levi scrubbed and cleaned and begged for more chores. He was a real workhorse.
Pretty motivated. Unfortunately he doesn't fit into the age category of payments so he had to just work and get no rewards. Well, no money rewards.....
Somewhat motivated. He would work for a while then lose interest and play. He still did really well and ended up with $3 to spend.
Voted for Obama. Still waiting for his check...... (That one's for you Dad)

I love your blog and would love the mittens pattern! Thank you. Just learning to knit so it will be a while before I can make those.

Hello my name is Melissa Aubel. I was just checking out your blog and I must say Seth is absolutely Handsome. I believe that Seth is my biological son. I am happy to be able to see and hear how Seth is doing. I also would like to ask you if it may be possible to be allowed some kind of reasonable contact with my son. I was talking with the caseworker here in Brownwood,Tx and she said that I should at least try this. You can contact me at miaa1283@yahoo.com. I thank you for your kind heart in caring and loving all our little ones. May God continue to Bless you and your Family. Thank you Melissa
