Logan was sick at the beginning of the week again. Now he's got a little raw spot under one side of his nose from wiping it too much. And then today he was laying on the floor watching Blue's Clues before school and the dog ran by him, or I should say ON him, and gave him a big scratch across his cheek. So his face looks all kinds of banged up. Poor kid.
Oh yeah, we finally got a replacement for Logan's dead fish. This one is all black, the same type of fish that Lemonhead is, and Logan named him Mr. Bean because his belly looks like a big jellybean. I'm glad to say that he is still alive after a week.
I've had a couple of people ask about the layoffs at Microsoft and the security of Chris' job. We are very happy to say that (for at least the next year) his job is not in any kind of jeopardy. Praise God! I spent a little while yesterday morning crying and praying like a mad woman until he called me and let me know it was all going to be okay. They are unfortunately going to cut raises after reviews this year though to help with costs. But we'll take a raise cut over a job loss any day!
Tonight Chris is attending an event at a friend's church in Seattle, so he won't be home until pretty late. So it's just me and my boys tonight with a pizza and a copy of Kung Fu Panda (Logan picked it out even though they've seen it a million times before, how can kids do that?!). We've got a pretty relaxing weekend planned: a lot of sitting at home doing nothing!!
We hope everybody has a great weekend and I promise to try and update this more often. Try being the operative word there.

1. Band-aids and a kiss really DO make it feel better.
2. The words "no" and "stop" are foreign to a child. Unless of course they're the ones screaming them at you.
3. The human body can function just fine on 3 hours of sleep a night.
4. You can watch Blue's Clues 863 times before going clinically insane, but the Doodle-Bops only takes 7.
5. The box that the $75 toy came in will see more playtime than the actual toy itself.
6. The best way to get crayon off of the wall is with a Mr Clean Magic Eraser.
7. A shower is a privilage, not a right.
8. A child's favorite game is tag, especially when it's played in the grocery store parking lot and you're "it".
9. Always bring your own magazine to the emergency room. Their selection is never that good.
10. "I love you, Mommy" will make your heart ache everytime you hear it.

I've always loved taking pictures and finally got my dream camera last April thanks to my amazing husband. Family and friends always ask me to do their photos and I always try to fit it in. I wish I had more time. There were actually 3 weddings that I had the opportunity to shoot this spring, but ALL of them are taking place around the time Sawyer will be arriving. So I'll just have to settle for attending them as a guest.
It always seems like as soon as I get back into my photography, another addition to our growing family comes along and puts it on hold again. Which really is OK with me, because it's just another subject to take million photos of.

This is Lemonhead, one of Brandon's fish. He's bright yellow but it's hard to tell in this pic. He was picked because of his cool "mohawk" fin.
The spotty fish on the left is Logan's other fish, Sheldon. The white fish with the red head is Brandon's 2nd fish, Robin.

We had to take Logan to the emergency room for breathing treatments. I ended up staying for 2 nights with him in the hospital. It was so sad. 3/06
Auntie came to visit and snuggled with Logan. He didn't like his hospital "cage" crib. 3/06
When he doesn't feel good, he can drop into a deep sleep where ever he is. This time it was watching TV with Chester. 4/07
