After a crazy Thursday/Friday - think why would I have to be the first one in line at the drive thru on Friday morning explaining why ALL of my mail was in their night deposit box and why my deposit was still in my car (and I was in my pjs) .... Ella was up most of the night Thursday with an earache and had gotten sick on Wednesday and thrown up in Sandy's car. Jonathan also ended up with his second round of the flu this year and his grandmother passed away. And, my poor mom broke a big chunk of one of her front teeth... But, on the the good news. When my mom came for dental work on Friday her and my dad took the kids home with them. I will tell you, it was welcomed! I am sort of ashamed to admit what happened on Saturday. I will though because I deserved it! First off, I did not wake up until 8:30, ate a doughnut (thanks to my dad) and proceeded to sit in bed and watch tv until 12:30. The part that is not going to make me look like a total slug is that I got to spend some extra time at the gym. I ran 3 miles and did some weights and lunges. I then went home, showered and hit the movies. I also got to talk on the phone to a couple of my friends. It is Monday though and I am ready for my kids to be back!

Forget Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders.....Ella comes downstairs today and announces that her and Jude are playing a new game. The name, you ask, Shoot the Rabbit. The rules are simple - the first one to toot wins. Welcome to the Griffin house. We thrive on all things proper and ladylike. She gets that from her Dad.

The Easter celebration began at church this past Sunday with the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Of course to complicate matters a little, I forgot their Easter baskets AND my camera. So, once again, no pictures to go along with the post. Rest assured that there will be more egg hunting and pretty much they all look the same. Ella was pretty upset by the fact that she had nothing to put her candy in. My response of "only keep what you can hold in your hands" did not go over well. We had to clean out her lunch bag to put her loot in it. Jude did the best he could with his little hands until their babysitter and dear friend Audie offered up her pink purse for him to store his goodies. The thought of relinquishing all candy to Audie's purse was not appealing at first. She had to reassure him that she would give it all back. He was happy with that result and filled up her bag. As it turns out I ended up giving all the candy (well, the candy that Jonathan did not want) back to Audie and Jenna! (Don't worry neither child noticed) Jude's party at school was today and Ella's is on Thursday. I did make it to his WITH my camera. I will post pictures and details later.

Mimi and Pops came to visit over the weekend until Wednesday. Their visit was filled with much excitement. We took a trip to Chuck E. Cheese where I forgot my camera but the pictures are easily described - I sat at the table and ate too much pizza while Ella and Jude led Mimi and Pops around like little crazy people "playing" games and riding the simulated roller coaster ride and pony. No, Pops and Mimi did not ride the pony. There was also a big Wal-Mart trip. I did not go but many purchases were made, including underwear for the potty boy in training as well as a couple of toys. Jude also has decided if you want something done right you must do it yourself as he was in the middle of his nap and pooped (he had pooped in the potty earlier but apparently was not finished). He climbed out of bed, got his wipes, cleaned himself, put on a clean diaper, put his "dirty materials" outside his door (I mean who would want to smell it while trying to relax), got back in bed and went back to sleep for another hour. Don't worry, if you don't want to go through the hassle of teaching your child to be potty trained just bring them over and Jude can teach them how to properly change their own diaper. He is good at it. He must know I am tired.
