2nd verse same as the first...just one year later..
Well..we had an interesting night last night. We got a phone call from Grandma C at about 1:30 in the morning. Danny had another seizure, probably scared the last 10 years off her life, and we got to go to children's in the ole ambulance again. This time he had another seizure IN the actual ER. We got admitted rather quickly after that, and we came come late this afternoon. GREAT BIG SHOUT OUT TO GRANDMA PAT...THANKS FOR KEEPING THE RILES FOR US! So, they sent him home today on a drug called Keppra to take to help keep seizures under control. I have to make an appointment for him on Monday to have an EEG done. Then we will go from there. Please keep us in your prayers that these are just flukes and won't amount to anything. We can only hope. Peace and hugs to all,

Miss Fix-it..attitude required...
If you know my daughter you know
1. She is a TOMBOY.
2. She loathes the color pink...see #1.
3. She has aquired an attitude from some descendent way down the line ( her 5th birthday party noone was surprised when her presents were, hotwheel cars, hotwheel car playset, CARS carwash, a john deere bike, a spiderman bike helmet, a stick pony, AND a John Deere TOOLBOX. Now, she plays with them all, her brother plays with her, but that toolbox...has become her third arm. She loves it, and carries it everywhere. She laid down on the couch last night "just to rest mom" and put it beside her on the floor. She fell asleep with it next to her. So, lots of thanks to "aunt deyanne" for finding the toolbox. It totally makes the outfit when she rides her john deere bike, with her john deere boots, and her john deere toolbox is "bungeed" to the rack on the back.

Happy Birthdays and sugar highs...
We have had a super exciting week here in disproportioned land. Riles celebrated her 5th birthday on Thursday, and Danny celebrates his 11th birthday today.
Happy Birthday Danny!
We had grandma pat and papa over on Thursday to celebrate the birthdays with them. Both kiddos got new bikes and are wishing it would warm back up to ride them again. Danny also got a knex ferris wheel, which he has already put together, and Riles got a stick pony! I think the highlight of Danny's night Friday was cash, and his lego starwars kit. Riles made out like a bandit with hotwheels cars, a car port, and car wash. lol...not a girlie toy in sight for her.
We celebrated with the sisters (and brother) on Friday night at shell's, and afterwards we stuffed easter eggs for the hunt today. Both kiddos are excited.
I hope everyone has a special day today, and god bless us all.

Movie Lines:
Can anyone guess which movie these came from? Thanks to michelle and dianne, I have a song from the wizard of oz running through my head. It has to do with mortimer.

movie lines:
"Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking"

"For twenty-three years I've been dying to tell you what I thought of you! And now... well, being a Christian woman, I can't say it!"

"Hearts will never be practical until they can be made unbreakable.”

A heart is not judged by how much you love; but by how much you are loved by others.

Good luck!

I have decided to join weight watchers again. I will be attending meetings in a town near me with a coworker. I am thinking positively about this. I need to do something to lose weight again. I was on a great track, but need to start again.
I ordered the kids laptop lunches lunch box. I am going to order one for me.
What I used to think was a positive thing, turns out to be not so positive. In Head Start, we serve family style meals. That means, the adults and students sit down and eat breakfast and lunch, together. We pass the food around and round, and then when everyone has their serving, we eat. The only thing is, even though we have a dietician, I will take my own lunch. This way, I can actually measure, and prepare my own food. So, I am going to order my own laptop lunch system, and hope it works for me.
Here I go again.

Archiver's Here We Come!
Fickel, Mindy, Mrs. Robinson, and I are all going to an all day crop at Archiver's tomorrow. I plan on making the PARTY album for the annual Halloween Spooktacular parties. I think I am going to pick up a couple more of these little albums to have on hand for the next couple years. God help us! On another note, to my FAMILY we are holding Riley and Danny's BDay parties at Shell's on Friday March 21. Then we will stuff Easter Eggs for Sunday. I don't know the time yet, I have to plan with Shell.
It is hard for the kiddos this year with their birthdays being so close to Easter. Riles is the 20th, and Danny's is actually Easter. What can I do to make his day special?
Chris is taking the 21st off, and we thought about taking them out and about for some fun FAMILY time.
I resume classes on the 15th, but I don't have class on the 22nd, so it will be a nice long weekend.
We also have a SISTER'S BREAKFAST coming up. We are celebrating Dianne and Deanne's bday this time. Then it is time for Cindy's. Of course nothing is going to be able to top last year's for her. SO..I hope your thinking of things for your list Cindy!
Well, I need to go get some sleep before I have to get up and pack my stuff for scrapping.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
