Back to life....Back to reality....

Ok. Play time is over and it's back to the grind. Ha, I say that so perfectly as if I worked in the slate factory in the Flinstones and not at my deskjob. Coin left for Michigan this morning. It was such a fun trip. Here are a few of the highlights of the trip.

Of course, game night was a huge hit. We played all kinds of fun games until the wee hours of morning. One of the funny moments of the night was when we went running screaming "EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF!!!", as Chris' drunk brother came looking for us all. Then we all behind cars covering our mouths like little children trying to hold in the giggles. I had both hands over my mouth and my legs crossed trying not to simutaneously give away our spot and pee my pants. His brother found Manda and we left her with the drunkard. Sorry Manda, Every man for himself!

The day after game night we all laid on the couch with the kids snuggling and watching cheesey movies all day. That was cozy.

We took all the kids including Lora and her Luca and went to see Hotel Dogs at the movies. The kids really did great. There was only one other family in the theater so the kids were able to kind of move around and sit on the stairs. Little Peyton did the best out of all the kids! He sat so still in his chair eating popcorn for almost the whole movie.

Last night we sat watching you tube videos for a good hour cracking up. If you enjoy browsing silly things on youtube, check out goremy. He has silly videos and songs that he makes up and I was doubled over. Check out the eggs over easy one if you have time. "Eggs ova eeeezaaaay. Cookemright, don't make em greeeeezaaay."

Ok, that's it for now. Oh and kudos to Kristy at the Weaver's Nest on my side roll of blogs. She had a run in with a real live hippo! Can you all believe it?!?!?!?! Lora, if you're out there reading....I am now living through Kristy so that I can get closer to my true beloved hippos!

p.s. My new resolution is to try to post a new picture on each blog, no matter how random it may be. This is me and Devin trying to make the ugliest faces possible....mission complete. lol.
