Follow Up...

I have had several comments or questions as to the brown substance around Noah's mouth in the toilet seat post. Just to clarify, it is chocolate...not poop! :)

Oh Noah, what are we going to do with you???  The other day Noah comes out to Michael and me in the living room looking like this, whining that the TOILET SEAT was stuck.  Oh nasty!  This is one of those little seats that kids use that sits on top of the regular seat.  And since it is Noah's, believe me, it is not a clean seat.  Yuck, yuck, yuck!  But as always, we reprimand him, turn away so he can't see our faces, and snicker.  Then Michael told me I had to take a picture.  So I did.  It was pretty hard to get this thing off of his head, but I finally managed.  And trust me, he was quickly disinfected!

The Love of My Life

I love this man.  He is truly a gift to me.  The past eight weeks have been really hard on me.  I have never experienced morning sickness to the degree that I have this pregnancy.  Michael has been so good to me.  He has tried to make me as comfortable as possible and has picked up in the areas (which consists of all areas of my life: kids, cleaning, laundry, cooking, grocery shopping, etc...) in which I have slacked!  He has been so patient with me and so supportive.  I love you, Michael....thank you for everything!!!!

Noah's 3rd Birthday!

Noah turned three last Monday (May 18th) and had a great day!  He started the day with his first ever dentist appointment!  He did great and has good lookin' teeth!  Then we all went to lunch at Red Robin!  It's a birthday tradition in our family.  After that we went home to rest a bit before heading to a local bounce house with some friends!  Once everyone was all worn out we headed home for a time with more friends and  celebrated Noah with lots of fun and a great cake and ice cream!  He loved the attention and loved the day!  We are so blessed to have so many people in our lives who love our children as their own family!

Youth Pastor Perk

Michael and I get toilet papered ever so often, the most recent time being the day of our garage sale!  But, I'm showing you so you can see how Michael cleaned it all!  This is a tip we learned from to Michigan friends...just catch it on fire and clean up is a cinch! :)

Race Day!!!!

At the end of April, Michelle and I ran our half-marathon!!!  It was a perfect running day and we had a good time...despite the lack of food on the route...we were so slow that they were all out of stuff by the time we got to the stops!  But, we crossed the finish line and earned our medals!  We finished in just under 3 hours...BUT, we have a reason why we ran so slow!  For those who haven't heard, the fourth and final Fernihough is coming in November!  Yep, we are pregnant!  I was 9 1/2 weeks along when I ran the race, so we took it nice and slow!
