Dear Children:

As of today you are puke and lice free. Thank you. If you noticed I have been listening to books on ipod for the last 3 weeks and ignoring all of you. This is not due to a lack of love; this is due to the fact that Jennifer had to go away for a little bit.

I am back now and oh how I have missed you. Let's catch up. Don't mind the skin falling off of my hands from the bleach that I have been using on everything. Hold my hand - it is OK.

Don't mind when I randomly shout out
"no make it stop".
Don't look at me like I am crazy. Promise - I am not.

Don't think it is bizzare when I start scratching my head uncontrollably and yell

"no - no -I know you are in there - GET OUT - you are not welcome on my head."

Thank you for not bringing home any new illnesses in the last 10 hours. Happy Holidays - It is good to be home

Love

Mom

A curious Night of Lights

Everyone was running around the house trying to find their "winter gear".  This crochet hat was the closest thing we had to it.  Number 4 was so excited to GO.  She didn't know where we were going; just that she was going to get out of the lice house. 
 (After being cooped in the house for 8 days we were bored out of our minds.  Number 4 now speaks in animal.  I don't know how to even type the noises she makes.  She has watched so much Dora and Diego this past week that she no longer uses the English language.  We are going to go along with it  - for now - and enjoy baby jaguar, owl, pig, dog, kitty, river dolphin, and horse.  Today started a new facet of the animal in her.  She now hunches and creeps around the house.  Kind of like an ape, but I think she is emulating baby jaguar (he seems to be her favorite)

The Cap and I had our picture taken.  Problem: I look large - and here I thought this jacket was super cute.  Darn.  Also,  I tried out the new bangs, and ........they haven't been tried out since.
This is the CUTEST picture of Number 4 that I have ever seen.  She looks frozen in time.
