I had a little help in the kitchen Sunday morning. They were all too excited to schuck corn and put the ears in the pot. I remember Mom giving me this job many a time! I was so ready to sink my teeth into some sweet crunchy corn but it so wasn't! Maybe I didn't cook it long enough, or too long but it was bad! I even tried to cook it longer and it was still hard! Maybe the farmers picked it too soon. It couldn't possibly have been

My back is burning my muscles hurt so bad and my kids think my new eye color is red. I caught Cameron today with his hands on her head. She was crying of course and when I was about to scold him for bugging her he said, "I was just trying to give her a little blessing." Poor kid. He just wants peace and quiet too. It has to end soon right? It doesn't help that my other three kids didn't have colic and all were sleeping through most of the night by this age. I know, I had it comin'. Well, the deal is sealed..this is IT! NO MORE KIDS EVER!!! (Friends, please remind me of this entry when and if I ever talk of having another child! Thank you.)

I think Craig and Tammy knew who the true Karaoke Champs were at the end of that competition. Or do we need a rematch??? The week at the cabin had more in store than just boating and karaoke. Lauren got to horseback ride for the first time. The kids and Dad explored a cave. There was sock wrestling, tug of war, playing in the sand and swimming, golf, star gazing through Scott's telescope (we actually saw the rings around Saturn!), mosquitoes galore, learning to kayak, a week of fantastic food and treats too. Thanks for the Coffee Crisp Auntie Gail!
Seeing my cousins and catching up was so fun. It was a joy to see each family and how they'd grown and meet new cousins we hadn't even seen before! We definitely missed Auntie Carol and wish her the best on her mission in Fiji. Can't wait until we do it again!!

She has been a very sweet baby so far. She already weighs a hefty 9 1/2 lbs. She is still getting the sleeping thing down at night and the hard part so far is deciding which one of the kids is going to hold her. Really, it's Lauren who is totally in love with taking care of her and Cameron and Sarah see her and think they need a piece of the babysitting pie. Lauren has been a HUGE help to me and has cute little names she calls the baby. I would have 10 more if I knew 10 good families that would take them after they turned a year old. We are blessed to have her and look forward to getting to love her into our family!
