Ahhhhhh.  It feels so good to have all my kids under one roof at the same time again!  All three kids arrived yesterday . . .at various times.  First Baby Girl.  Then Baby Girl and I drove to the Cities to pick up Wild One....she had arrived via airplane, and her friend, Kristin (who lives near airport) picked her up so the two of them could catch up over some java.

By the time we got home from the Cities, Natey-boy was home.  Then....DIY Guy showed up.....and the chaos and laughter began.  Chaos .....the unloading of the van.  Boxes, bags, piles, STUFF from college dorm filled MY space.  Slight panic....then I'm over it.  Time to go get pizza at Val's.

9:00  pm.  Everyone is gathered in the same room....which is a dangerous thing.  
As usual, there was LOTs of laughter and nonsense.

I SWEAR I taught them manners.  
Really, mom.  I did.  I promise.  

As time progressed, things started to deteriorate.  Nate taught everyone how to suck air in through lips to make a ....shall we say...."familiar" sound.  Then the straws came out and the show began.  Wow.....I laughed so hard I couldn't stop....and it hurt!

Here's just a quick shot of the shenanigans . . .

Tonight is a little quieter...surprisingly.
Nate has a friend from college here for the night.  That makes 7 people sleeping here tonight.  Tomorrow night there will be 9!


  1. Wow. I think thats about all I can say. Wow. :)

  2. I'm jelous and happy for you all at the same time :)

    Enjoy those kiddo's and all the craziness they bring.

  3. Haha, so funny. Hopefully I get to visit with that Miss Cara within the next few days!
    How did you get the background of your blog to do that? The red on the edges and then kind of transparent where you write, I just love it!
