Impromptu Jam Session

Impromptu Jam Session
 
I love watching the kids play.  We got the older boys guitars and a microphone and amp for Christmas.  Anyways it was out of batteries and I had replaced them because I thought Micah would really like it.
 
 
Sure enough, I was right
 
I forget how this happened exactly, I assume Noah brought out the microphone and got Micah set up.  He was singing (Rarararara) lol
 
He loves his big brother

 Then E came out to join us. No group is complete unless someone is wearing a cape
 
In these photos Eli reminds me of a real rocker.  Goof ball

And this was our Impromptu Jam Session, it was fun.  I hope we have another one soon.

Playing Vet

 
We are back to school full time as of yesterday & I decided to set up one fun activity to do a day with Micah.
 
In the morning I got out his patients, an ear checker, a nose sucker and a thermometer.  The older boys were busy and Micah was interested but spent a lot of time just chasing around the light on the floor from the ear checker.
 
 
I put everthing up and laid him down for nap.  when I got him up, I noticed Eli had gotten everything out again...and more
 
He got band aids (duck dynasty of course) a hair brush, thermometer, q-tips and the ear checker thing.

 
The Q-Tips did make me nervous but I decided to sit down and just watch them play, that way I could intervene if needed

 
This time, he was much more involved, he is checking the ear here (you cant really see the tool)

 
Taking penguins temp

 
It was cute & fun and I was glad to revisit the vet office in play.

Funny Joke

Yesterday I went out back to care for my 16 rabbits.  I came back in to the back door and tried to open it.  It was locked "This is odd" I thought.  I went to the front door, the boys were out on the front porch.  It was locked too. "What is going on" I thought.  About this time, I look at Noah and say "Did you lock the door?" confused.  He said "yes, but don't worry I have the key"
 
 
 
And he holds up, the key to the Pearland house.  The wrong key.
 
 
I said "Noah, that is not the right key"
"Yes it is mom, it fits"
"It may fit, but it wont open it" 
 
Well it didn't open, and we sat out side from 2:30 to 7:00 when Wes got home.
 
Luckily I keep a dirty car.  We found a cup and used to hose so the baby had plenty of water & we hosed him down.  Awesome day for Wes to work late.
 
I go inside to my phone and I had 11 missed calls and text messages along the lines of "are you guys still alive?"

Then I go to give the baby a bath and someone had locked MY bedroom door.  I about lost it.  My door was quickly unlocked.

Lesson learned, everyone has a key now.

Here is Noah recapping the whole thing for you

......been too gone for too long

Yes we have.  I just recently got internet back and I don't really know where to start catching up on the blog.  I had been pretty regular on my postings.  I will do a quick (somewhat) recap.
 
 
 
I took the kids to a smoothie shop for a smoothie and there was the poster on the wall.  Eli was refusing to drink a shake because he was worried that after drinking it he would look like the man on the poster.  I assured him that he would not, and I had to have the man who made the smoothies reassure him as well. Eli said "they should really take that down, I bet he scares a lot of people who come in here"  lol.


 
Eli turned 6 and I was going to make him a cool cake.  FAIL.  the good thing?  It tasted awesome
 
We took the boys and a friend to pleasure pier, where they had a blast
