m and s were playing on the floor by the central vacuum hole (this after just having beaten each other up for possession of said hole) . Well m had stuffed a diaper wipe in the hole and was trying to get it back out before s took it from him. There is a small button on the inside of the hole that starts the suction and m accidentally pushed it and the thing sucked his wipe down and made a loud noise. Those two jumped up so fast and started pointing and talking...it was hilarious. They couldn't figure out what happened or how.
I wanted to laugh to bad but had to keep a straight face and tell them 'danger'. That will keep them away from it for about a day at best.

This is my handy-dandy-every-day purse. It is a Vera Bradley backpack (in Medallion). I love it because I can carry it while dealing with all 4 of my kids. And it is machine washable!!
What I paid for it: It retailed originally for around $85, but I found it on sale for 70% off. So, I guess I paid around $25 including tax.

Here is part of our conversation this week:
me: "Who did you play with in class?"
d: "Yep, I love her."
me: "You love her!?"
me: "Umm, okay."
d: "She's my girlfriend."
me: "Mmmm..she's your girlfriend?"
d: "Yes, I love her and I love all my friends."
me: "Well, that's good."
d: "You are supposed to love all your friends."
What more can I add to that? Pretty smart kid.

Oh, who am I kidding.......those stinkin' brats just would not leave their diapers on. After chasing them around and putting diapers back on I finally just let them play butt naked for about an hour. They really seemed to enjoy it.

I had mentioned that it would be pretty neat to have 'valentines babies' but the doctors were insistent they would not be born for a few more weeks. Well, apparently the girls had a different idea. On 2/13, during a regular growth ultrasound, the doctor discovered that the girls had not grown enough during the 2-week period between ultrasounds, and that it was time to deliver.
So, call it luck, or chance, or fate, or whatever....but I got my 'valentines babies'.
The picture above was the first day they all slept together, so they were not quite two days old. They stayed in that crib together until they went home at 16 days old.
left to right is m, e & s.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY my little monkeys!!!
I can't believe they are two years old already!

We took the kids to get their hair cut yesterday....buzz do's for the boys and bang trims for the girls.
I'm thinking this picture is about as good as it will get...it's not often all 4 kids occupy the same space..at least not for very long.
And, yes, I do feed them..not sure why they all have fingers in their mouths.
Who else is watching American Idol?

Poor d, he sat down to eat a sandwich and was bombarded by m and s. They just kept taking all of his food. What a good big brother though.....he didn't whack them in the head with the plate, though I'm sure it crossed his mind.
Today, we had a nice, quiet day at home. Just me and the kids...we stayed in our jammies all day, watched a couple of movies and stayed pretty much low key.......unless you count those times they were running laps around the couch trying to grab each other by the hair....sometimes it is No Holds Barred-Down & Dirty Fighting. Those kids definitely know how to fight....it's amazing they aren't covered in bruises.
e pulled the 'Amazing Stripping Toddler' act at naptime today. So funny....it's like she doesn't want to sleep in clothes. She takes everything off and leaves it in a pile on the floor and then took almost a 3 hour nap.

Supposedly, we were going to get 1-3 inches. Well....can you guess that a man said that because we had at least 8 inches.
And, I was fortunate enough to get to snow-blow the seven driveways on our cul-de-sac. I literally had ice hanging on my eyelashes and my hair was frozen. It wasn't a pretty site.....which is why there won't be any pics on this post.
I think I might be suffering from PTSD after the ordeal today......seriously.....I'm still having flashbacks of blinding snow pelting me in the face as I trudge through my neighbors yards trying to control that insane beast of a snow blower. Have you ever inhaled blowing snow? I don't recommend it. Did you know there are different speeds on those things? Who needs the Y....just give me lots of snow and I can chase that damn machine up the street. Maybe that could be the next challenge on The Biggest Loser....that would be hilarious.
Of course all the above happened after I made the 20 mile drive home that took 1 hour and 40 minutes....and that is before the roads really started to get bad. Then I almost nailed the tail end of my MIL's car...though to be fair she isn't the best parker...it only took us about 4 years to convince her to get the tail of her car onto our driveway and not leave it hanging out into the street so the mailman can't get to the mailbox....
MIL & FIL are staying the night here because we told them not to chance it.....just the thought of them off in some ditch....
BTW.......Em, hope you made it home okay...and everyone else that lives near me and skulks around my blog on occasion....
Think this means more snow days to make up for school??????
