Getting Back to Normal

Well, after 10 days of having Grammy, Kelyn, Samuel, and Isaac here - things got turned a little upside down! We loved it! We had so much fun while they were here and I was so sorry to see them leave yesterday! Samuel and Isaac are SOOOO unbelievably cute! Isaac is the smiliest, nicest little guy you will ever meet! Samuel is so cute and hilarious! He loves to dance and he eats like a little horse! It's so fun to watch when Kelyn starts singing "Circle circle round and round!" and he starts dancing around the room. Anika has been asking me to sing that song and "Samuel's song" over and over since they left. Samuel's song goes something like: "Look at my man so handsomest..." sang to the tune of THE THONG SONG! Kel - you will have to post a comment with your actual lyrics. It's quite the cute little diddy! We did a lot of fun stuff while they were here. We went to a few parks and farms - which was nice because the kids loved it and it was cheap! We also went to Salem, MA in hopes of learning more about the Salem witch trial. Word to the wise: Never take 4 kids under the age of 2 into a guided tour!! It just doesn't work very well. =) The drive there was absolutely beautiful and we did have a fabulous seafood lunch. I have to admit, I'm starting to enjoy eating our underwater friends! On Saturday I took Kelyn to some tag sales. I couldn't let her come all the way out here and not show her what I do religiously every Saturday morning! She went home with an extra suitcase full of stuff! Hello! How could she pass it up?! Me, Kelyn and Grammy spent a lot of the evenings playing Hand and Foot. For those of you who don't know - Hand and Foot is only the BEST card game ever!! I seriously never tire of it! Grammy is so much fun to play cards with! Some classic Grammy comments were: SHOOEY, SHUCKS, and DARN!, Oh, Phoo! , Piffle!, and I could probably come up with some more. She was so much fun to have around. We got to hear so many fun stories about her life and I just love her so much! She is such a sport. After 10 days of being around 4 kids she was still smiling - at least on the outside! I think that everybody was ready to be back in their own beds and back to their own routines by the end. We took lots of pictures. I'll post the link with this blog entry and also stick it on the side in the MY PHOTO ALBUMS section. We have some awfully cute kids! Feel free to post a comment telling me how adorable they are. Ha ha!! Love and miss you all!

Very cute pictures. I think Anika looks just like you, especially in the bathtub photo. And I can't believe all the kids in the playgroup photo. It's only been 3 months and they already all look so different!

well if you must know the lyrics to my song, or a.k.a."Samuel's Song" go a little something like this..... Look at my man he's handsomest, know he is my prandsomest. Shakin that thing like he's so cute look in his eyes and he's so lute. Livin la vida loca...livin la vida loca. He was cute as a cute, cute, cute. He was tute, tute, tute. All night long. Dance n dance to your sooooong your song n song n song.your song n song n song. I like the way you move I like the way you groooove. Repeat if desired (which is often for us). And there you have it. I was smiling a lot while writing it because never have I seen it written down before. Anyways... love you
