Over The Past Week.............

 Over the past week my sweet husband has worked a 96. If you are married to a firefighter you know exactly what that means. Let me translate if you don't know what a 96 is. It's 4 days of your kids climbing your face asking when daddy will be home. ;)

Over the past week I have asked the kids and their friends to pose for silly pictures on our back patio..........
 Ask and you shall receive..........
 Some of you better parents out there may be asking,"Why do you let them stand and play on that wall when the drop off is so steep?" My answer to that is,"We haven't lost one yet! LOL!"
 Over the past week I turned 38. Happy Birthday to me! Yay! I love birthdays although I will be doing a post soon on how different gravity is affecting my body this year as apposed to say oh 10 years ago. 
My brother suggested going down to the OC to stay with him and go Disneyland for my birthday. Against my better judgement and probably my Dr.'s if they knew; we went. I drug my mom along to keep me in line.

Over the past week I got to know my brothers girlfriend better..............nice girl.
 Over the past week I took cute pictures of my sweet Ryanne riding the carousel........
 Over the past week I tried to sneak a picture on Pirates of The Caribbean......Ya' got busted.

 Over the past week I avoided all rides that went in circles because I wanted my spleen to stay in the right location in my body and I also did not want to throw up my lunch.......
 Over the past week I went to San Diego and celebrated with my sister in law as she turned 40.......

Over the past week I stole this idea from my friend Kristi. She has a box for each of her four kids; throughout the day she tosses their stuff in the appropriate kids box as she finds it laying around the house. And then each night they take them to their rooms and put it all away. It is working great with my girls. :) 

Over the past week I decided to start slowly getting back to working out and so I took my dog for a walk. I was just about to step down when a baby rattlesnake reared it's head up and let's just say this,"I have jumping moves you have never seen." My neighbor heard me scream and came running to catch the snake. I on the other hand went home to change my underwear. Ha!

Over the past week I got to meet my newest niece......she's 11 days old.......
 I love her..........
 Over the past week I attempted to get a photo of 6 cousins all looking and smiling at me at the same time........

 Over the past week I finally gave up................
 Over the past week I got a teeny, tiny little "I want another baby daughter" pang in my heart when I saw my husband holding our niece.......
 Over the past week I laughed when my husband chased, tickled and wrestled with two of my nephews.......
 Over the past week my cup run over at all the little things.

The snake would have made me need to change my underwear too ;-)

Sounds like a great week besides not seeing your hubby for that amount of time :(

And yes that snake would have scared me too. I hate snakes.

And happy birthday!
