So I guess maybe everyone didn't know that Alison was pregnant. And I thought I was the last to know everything! Anyway, I think she is due in September. I will keep you posted.

I found out today that Isabel's wrist isn't as bad as they first thought and she won't have to have a cast!!! Just wear the splint for a few weeks!

Skyler lost another tooth yesterday!!! This time it was the top (front) left. And again he lost the tooth ~ so ~ his dad made another cute note for us to put under his pillow. This time the tooth fairy left him three one dollar bills!!!

Last night I took the boys to see Sesame Street (elmo!). We all had a great time. It is so cute to see them dance and sing. We had great seats. It is funny how at the second half of the show the noise level is so much higher than the first half. Kind of like everyone all the sudden is way too tired and up way past their bedtimes.

Tonight we went to Payless shoes and the boys both got Spider Man Flip Flops that light up when you walk.

Julie reminded me that Al Conrad's birthday is also May 25th (he will be 54!!!) Al, I want you to know that you too are invited to spend the day with us at Knott's Berry Farm. Let me know if your are going to be able to make it, I will be sure to get you a ticket and make sure someone picks you up at the airport!!!

Well, I just read Julie's comment and it made me laugh, so I had to post!

Off to bed for me before I become a pumpkin. . .

Happy Friday (we are so close I am just going for it!!!)
Love ya,

Wow, it sure has been a long time since I posted and boy oh boy has there been a lot of stuff going on. The thing first and foremost in mind right this very second is that those two boys have been in their bedroom for at least an hour and they are both STILL AWAKE and causing each other trouble. Arguing, antagonising, and generally being mean to each other. I thing I may need to separate them at some point. I just hate to do it. It is so easy to have them in the same room.
Skyler lost his third tooth yesterday! He has lost each of the teeth that he lost (does that make sense???) So each time he has lost a tooth we have had to write a note to the tooth fairy and put that, rather than the tooth under his pillow. I was out last night when he went to bed so Shannon wrote the note, and it was so cute! He even put a picture of the tooth fairy on it (Skyler wanted to know how he knew what she looked like!) The tooth fairy left him $5.00. He has no concept of money so he wanted to know how come he only got one. I tried to explain about one dollar bills vs five doller bills, but it didn't really sink in! Oh well!

So we are still doing t-ball on Thursday nights and Saturday mornings. We also started swim lessons on Saturday mornings. It is so cool to watch the boys learning to swim. Skyler has always been terrified to float on his back, but he was doing it Saturday morning! The lessons are eight weeks, 1/2 hour each. It will be fun to watch them progress. Hopefully by the end of the summer they will be swimming! The last t-ball game is on Memorial weekend. I can't believe that they would schedule it that day, but they did. I guess we will have to make arrangements to get our trophies (with pictures in them), because we won't be there!

So you ask, Where will we be??? At Knott's Berry Farm. That's right we are going to Knott's the Saturday of Memorial Weekend. It should be a lot of fun!!! Skyler and Amy's birthday is on May 25th which is the day before. So basically we are taking both of them to Knott's for their birthday! Amy, Brock, Isabel and Megan (Brock's niece) are going with us. We took the boys to Magic Mountain a few months back so they have been to an amusement park before, but I think that Camp Snoopy will really be a lot of fun for all the kids!

Speaking of Isabel, I guess she broke her wrist and will have to get a cast on Thursday (after the swelling goes down.) Poor Baby!

I keep asking Alison to send me pictures of her pregnant self, but so far I have not received them. As soon as I do I will post them. She had also said that she would send pictures of the ultrasound, but I have not received them either! I am disappointed that the are not finding out the sex of the baby. Oh well, I was not able to talk them into it, but I will keep trying. There was a nice bit about Amma on 20/20 last Friday. I TIVO'ed it, but watched it on the you tube link that Alison sent me.

So Mother's day was pretty relaxing at my house. I went to the boy's school on Friday for their Mother's Day Lunch. It was pretty nice. They had three different kinds of soup, a salad bar, brownies, and strawberry shortcake. I got to eat lunch with the boys, and then they gave us our Mother's Day presents that they had made! It was all TOO CUTE!

So for Mother's Day I got a small (really small) bird nest wind chime that Skyer painted (blue), a flower pot with a mum in it that David made (too funny, it said "I love my mom because she takes me to get a shot")!!!, a heart that Skyler made, and a NEW SMART PHONE!!!

Yep, you heard me right, I got a red Trio 680. It is too cool! Here is a picture of it.

One of the coolest thing is that I can read my book on it, listen to music (mp3s), and it's a phone (and it's cute!!!) So today I went to the gym (walked on the treadmill for 45 min) and read my book from my phone!!!

Well, sorry for such a long post, I guess since I haven't posted for awhile, I had a little bit to say. I will try and keep up with this a with this a little better!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Love ya,
