Funny Motherly Instincts!

Ok... So this will be brief, but it is a situation that Sean and I found quite amusing, despite the fact that I woke him from a sound sleep. If it had been a reverse role... Yikes! He probably would have had a bloody nose, or at least be hurting somewhere still. Anyhow, due to traveling and messing Charis' sleeping schedule up, my Sunday morning began quite early, and Charis decided that she had to eat much more often and sooner than normal. After her second feeding at only 7:30 am, I decided to go back to bed. I wake up suddenly to see/feel something rolling, from my perspective "off" the bed, and I lurched rather urgently to grab (to Sean's chagrin) and keep Sean from rolling over in his sleep. Of course, the last thing I remember was feeding Charis, and I awoke quickly thinking that it was her who had fallen asleep beside me and that she was about to land on the floor. Sean, thankfully, responded with only, "What are you doing???" There were no other repercussions, surprisingly. I, of course, got into a giggling fit and could not stop for some time. BUT... to end this story, Charis was safely in her bed downstairs, and I was able to sleep for a bit longer. :) Has this happened to anyone else?

Happy Birthday to...

We recently took a trip over to my brother's home to enjoy some family time as well as celebrate their oldest daughter's birthday. Sean had to stay at home and work, but the rest of us had a good time anyway. Here are just a few, and I mean a few, of the many, many pictures taken... Enjoy!

I just couldn't get over their wild roses outside!

What is a party without presents!

Grammy fixing the birthday girl's hair!

Just thought I would have some fun with some
different angles: looking into the mirror, through
the presents and...

Ren picked some flowers for the center piece! Did someone mention Dora???

With all of the rest of us working, Lauren thought that she might just kick back for all of us combined! :)

Presents, paper, smiles, and CAKE!

Last but not least... the smallest member preparing for bed from her hard day's labor by taking a nice warm bath! Can anyone guess with that loving, happy little face at whom Lauren might be looking?
