Zeus was here.

10 random facts from our break.

1. I forgot to take a photo of all of us sitting at the table.
or of the food.
or of us and the food. at. the. table.

Jared managed to snap this gem though.
(I have no idea...it's best not to ask) I was actually really bad about taking photos.
so trust me when I say Mike was here.
and my folks.
I was enjoying them all too much to take photos, clearly.

2. I made 2 pumpkin pies.
then I dropped one on my foot.
(no, I'm not kidding)
so. I ended up actually making 3 delicious pies creatively named "pumpkin"...
well.
two named pumpkin, one named "darn" pie that fell on my foot...

3. The littles really loved playing with Ev.
They have mentioned a million times since he left that I need to provide them with a baby brother or sister.
(they are not getting THAT for Christmas)
4. we crafted with pinecones and glitter.
pinecones
and
glitter.
come on. does it get anymore crafty?!?


5. video games were played.
Uncle Merry Mike came bearing a gift of wii Scene It...
for the boys of course....
yep, for the boys.
not at all for me....nope.
(oooh my gosh I LOVE wii Scene It...thank you Mike)
6. Evan can say all our names now.
Extremely adorable...although he's still very partial to "Dack".
I am officially "Eeeeeeeee"
and then laughter follows.
which leads to believe I'm either hysterically funny,
or veeeery funny looking.

7. We attempted a photo shoot with the Ev.
It didn't go well.
He's fast like ninja.
Most photos look like this...

but there are a few that I like...
I'll post them tomorrow...8.the next day we tried to take some photos of all four boys before the Feks left.
ha.
that
was
also
unsuccessful.
horribly unsuccessful.
9. the littles were very anxious to break the wishbone.
Col got them in position and explained the rules...
