I once was lost, but now I'm found...

I have been on a temporary blogging hiatus but am back now. It has been a crazy month with visitors, cub scout camp, my work schedule, Tim going out of town and us going up to mom and dad's....JUST NUTZ!!!! But, I'm back and am here to report that there is NOTHING to report. Here's what you missed:

McGwire got new hockey gear~ Tim spent months comparison shopping and browsing hockey sites trying to find the best prices for pads and equipment for McG. Let's just say that all of his hard work paid off. We saved hundreds (yes, hundreds) of dollars.

Lilah is neglected and needs a new wardrobe~ Poor Lilah has holes in her clothes. Is this not the most pitiful thing you've ever seen?

My life is officially over~ Look who I found climbing up the stairs? luckily I had the camera handy to document the occasion. She was not a bit happy about me trying to get her down!

Hey baby, McGwire's your handyman~ One of the projects at scout camp this year was building a toolbox. McG didn't finish his at camp so he brought it home to finish. Tim was out of town for a few days and one night while I was working, McG got his daddy's tools out and finished his toolbox. He decided he wanted to give it to Tim. How sweet!! Let's hope Tim is up to date on his tetanus immunization!!

Lilah has 6 teeth and she ain't afraid to use them~ She is sharpening her fangs on every piece of furniture in the house. Our coffee table is shredded in several places. At least she's getting plenty of fiber!!

Baby's got a new pair of shoes~ Well 2 new pair, actually. we went to Target to buy Mac some new sneakers but I wasn't about to pay $30 for cheap Target brand sneakers!! HELLO!?!?!? So we bought 2 pairs of cheap shoes for less than the sneakers would have cost. I love the plaid slip ons and he loves the "crocs". Bless his heart...he doesn't realize that they aren't the real crocs. Let the boy dream!!

Lilah is officially a 10 month old~ Can you even believe it?? 10 months? Crazy!!

Well, that's about it. I didn't take any pictures of scout camp. I'm hoping that it was all a bad dream and that it didn't really happen if it wasn't documented on film.

More family pics


Emily and Jeff

Bailey and Lilah

These next few pix are funny! You see plenty of the back of Lilah's head and McGwire looks like he's been photoshopped in. Bailey has the same pose in all of the pics, which I was informed by the older girls that people do indeed have a "good side" and these girls certainly have mastered the art of using their "good side". I was laughing so hard at them and their poses!

We had a nice, short visit with everyone.

A week of visits

Tim's family visited several weeks ago, then my parents came down last week and finally my brother and his 2 girls (along with their friends) came down last night. Won't everybody just stay home already???? ;)

We certainly didn't do too much when my parents came. 'Mostly just swam and watched McG's hockey practice. Jeff and the girls only spent one night (unless he decides to stay tonight after a hard day at Six Flags) and will spend the rest of his visit w/ mom and dad.

Grampy did a whole 'lotta of this:

Picky did a whole 'lotta this:

Mac jammed to Linkin Park:

Lilah showed off her chubby tummy:
