I'll try this again...

I wrote a post last night and had photos uploaded and when I clicked to publish this dad-blasted, dag-nabbit, dial-up and it had disconnected and everything went POOF,,,purty as you please. Made me feel quite useless for a minute there, but then I got over it and instead of trying to post again, I went to my wing chair and put my feet up cause I was just too tired to try again.






Jerri took the Chicklet photos and I snapped this one of Krysten, Abby, and Merikate with their brother, Zach, yesterday afternoon.

Abby had big news to tell me when they came by yesterday. First was her sore finger from the attack of the mail box, she wasn't too pleased with that. Then she had to tell me that the "firemans" had come to her (preschool) class and he told her to call "9-9-1-2-9-6-5-4-3" in case of an emergency. She repeats those same numbers no matter how many times I asked her about what the "firemans" told her.

Jerri says the Chick is loving her dance class on Mondays. She told me the news finally leaked out from behind the secretive doors about their dance recital in April. They'll be performing to "Itsy Bitsy, Teeny Weeny, Yellow Poka-Dot Bikini". I have an idea that their act will be a hit cause the image of a bunch of little totish girls in bikinis and towels makes me smile just thinking about it.

Trish called and Jordan is racking up the home runs during her fall softball season. Jaylen is doing great too except she's been having so much trouble with her tonsils lately. The doctors at Children's Hospital in Little Rock are great but I just wonder if she has allergies since she gets sick with this stuff so often.

Krysten and MeriKate are also doing fine. Krysten has been making good grades and Merikate has too when she's not getting into trouble. She punched a little girl the other day for staring at her.

Jillian is just being sweet Jillian. When she smiles or giggles she does it with her whole body and you can see this little gleam in her eyes that says, "Ya'll just wait till I can move around on my own".

Yesterday was a full one with many errands, and I believe errands breed errands, so I have a few more today. Most of today's can be done over the phone so at least I won't have to leave the house, I hope!

I'm going to try to get around to read my blog roll some time today as well cause I can't be letting folks do things that I don't know about!

Happy Thursday ya'll!

I love coming here :)

You have such a great family, Brenda, and it's so much fun keeping up on all the news of the little ones and watching them grow up.

That little Jillian is growing like crazy, hey?

Alexis will be in her glory at the dance recital -- can't wait for the pictures.

And Merikate makes me smile.

I had problems when I was little with my tonsils. I kept getting it all the time. Then they swabbed my family to see who else could have problems, and found that my Dad was the carrier of Strep. So they fixed him and I was fine. Still have my tonsils too.

After last weekend I thought I wouldn't ever want to see another kid again LOL....but I was wrong. I love the pics of your grandkids, they are adorable. I too see that gleam in Jillian's eyes, just waiting for the day she can start getting around on her own.

What great pictures! Good job on the photography to both of you.

Yay! to Jordan on those homeruns! I hope they can figure out what's going on with Jaylen. It's awful to have a sore throat all the time when you're so little.

Oh Goody, I was hoping to see pictures today. That little Jilian is growing so fast....she is really looking like the chick in that picture. The Chick is beautiful as always. And then you have those other 4 beautiful kids. All you needed was to have Jordan and Jaylen there too. We are so blessed, aren't we Brenda?
