Things that made me laugh this week...

There were many things the girls said that cracked me are just a few that come to mind...

1. "NO Bos-a-co (Bosco was three syllables) NO!!!" I seriously heard this hundreds of times this week.

2. "Alex, you're not sharing" Rachel
"I know...but sometimes it's HARD to share, right?" Alex
"Yes, sometimes it's hard to share" Rachel

3. "Mama, don't let Baby Hudson get it (their Fairytopia doll)...he makes CRAZY HAIR" (he would turn the fairy's pretty hair into one. serious. afro.)

4. " you know how to read?"

5. "Joycie, there is a lot of Bos-a-co's hair on the floor" (they were amazed at the concept of a shedding dog...since their Tobi doesn't shed)

6. "That's and Alex just want to play by ourselves"
" want some privacy?"
"Yes, we want privacy"

7. "What's that?" referring to Baby Hudson's "wee-wee"

8. "Maybe you should let Mama hold Baby Hudson" (when Hudson was in THEIR mama being better at consoling him)

9. "Mama, it's not FAIR that you're wearing a dress when we are only wearing a skirt" (real tears in eyes...could they be any more girly-girls?)

10. "Girls...I'm going to miss you so much when you go back home...I didn't get enough of you this week! Are you going to miss me?" I asked

"um, no."

Masterpieces by Alex et Rachel

One thing my house definitely lacks is color...EVERYTHING is neutral...beige, brown, off-white. Bor-ing! Now I have these bright, beautiful pieces of art to display...don't they liven up our house?

The last picture is of our yummy "picnic" lunch with my dad. We feasted on BBQ and cake! So nice to be all together. We were missing you Sue and family!

Our Busy B & B!

It's been a crazy couple of weeks at our house...we've had many visitors come and go. It was busy, crazy, and super fun! Now everyone is gone, and it's almost TOO quiet...Rob's watching a movie, Hudson is sleeping, and I'm finally catching up blogging.

I LOVED seeing everyone, but it's always after visits like these, that I realize how crappy it is to live so far away from family and friends. It makes me sad to say "goodbye" again and again. I would love for Hudson to have REGULAR contact with everyone...grow up being close to loved ones. He LOVED his cousins Alex and Rachel. He was entertained just watching them play (they on the otherhand thought "Baby Hudson" was annoying).

Jan...I'm counting on you to convince Glen and Akiko to come with you next time...

loved to death...

Bosco's favorite toy since he was 6 months old (AKA "Stinky Puppy")

Ears chewed off, stuffing pulled out, eyes gouged, squeaky-thingy inside no longer squeaky...and take my word for's not dubbed "Stinky Puppy" for nothing...but he still loves it 3 1/2 years later...

I think it may be time for a new one
