The Power Of Magical Hands

We had such an eventful weekend. It all started with Buster Brown getting neutered on Friday. I know I have told you how intuitive Sullivan is, well..... yeah. He wanted to understand it all. When we went to drop him off Friday morning, Sullvian asked the nurse- "don't you think its gonn hurt to cut his wee wee? I mean, can't we just keep him without you cutting it?" She told him they would put him to sleep so that he wouldn't feel anything, to which he replies "Yeah, they put me to sleep before, only thing is, I played really hard the night before so I was really tired, and he didn't." He kept asking question after question. And then, when we picked him up, Sullivan noticed right away that two things were MISSING! It was interesting to say the least- the things they don't tell you about when you get pregnant!

Then, Saturday morning, we went to our dear friend Brooke's fourth birthday party! It was fun because we have known her since she was 15 months old, and its neat to watch them grow! I'll fill you in on the rest of our weekend a little later.

Best Friends Forever- these were our first friends in College Station- Brooke (the birthday girl), and Trinity.

The boy had no idea it was a pink princess jeep. It was good for off roading, as far as he was concerned.

We soon realized that the reason Sophie was being so good was that she was getting SPOONFULLS of the ranch dip and enjoying it without chips. She put a whole new slant on the term "double dipping".

At first, Sullivan was scared to watch the magic show, then he realized that the magician had magic in his hands, and had to figure out how he could get it too!

One of "those" bloggers

Well, I always swear I will not be one of "those" bloggers. You know the ones that forget all about blogging and actually lead their real lives. Well, it happened this month, and I apologize! We just have so much going on.

For starters, we have a new puppy. Not by choice- he found us. We were driving home from my parents' two weeks ago, when we almost hit him on the highway in the middle of the woods. We brought him home and cleaned him up, and tried to find him a new home. But, in the mean time, we all fell in love. He is such a sweet boy that we now realize he is ours. His name started off being Sawyer, but the kids could never remember is, so now he is Buster Brown. Sophie likes to tell everyone how cute he is. When she says cute, her word rhymes with "scoot". So, she always says "look at this cootie, come here cootie, what a cootie". Its adorable, I swear. Sampson loves him, Delilah doesn't belittle herself enough to play with another dog in fear that someone might think she is one as well.

I need to take some pictures of my children today so that you can actually know that they ARE, indeed, still alive and well. I don't want to jinx us, but we have been incredibly well lately- no sickos in the bunch. We have enjoyed playing outside for the majority of our days lately. Sullivan is finally enjoying his dumptruck we got him over two years ago, and Sophie loves riding bikes. She is quite the talker now, and its pretty funny to listen to. We met some of our friends at Sam's the other day. Her and I were pregnant with our girls at the same time, so it was crazy to watch them interacting. They thought it was really funny to tell each other that they were funny. So, Sophie would say "you're funny", then Evie would say "no you're funny." This continued for about an hour, and never got old to the girls.

Sullivan has started reading like crazy. Its kind of funny, but kind of creepy. I mean, he is supposed to be my baby. Yesterday, I took him with me to run a bunch of errands with me alone. We were driving, and he said, "Mom, what is fresh fish and seafood?" I was totally thrown off, and asked, "What?" He says, "Red Lobster says they have it, what is it?" I couldn't believe he had read that as we drove by, no time for sounding anything out! Then, last night, he saw Aaron on the internet looking at a termite page, and he asked him "Why would anyone call themselves a Bug Man?" Aaron was blown away that he is reading our stuff now! Man, time goes by quickly!

I'll end on this one piece of advice that Sullivan shared with me yesterday- "Humans should never drink too much milk, because their mouths would be on fire. Now, if you are an alien, you can drink as much milk as you want, because you like fire- you know, you live close to the sun."
