Long time comin'

I just looked at my blog and realized I haven't posted in, oh, around 17 days! WHAT? That just doesn't happen. Unless, of course, you have four kids and your life--between church and kids and school functions and PTO's and other craziness-- just suddenly becomes complete and total CHAOS! I don't know where 17 days went, but I don't believe they were actually here. Somebody's playing tricks on me, because I have no recollection of that many days passing. But judging from all the chicken scratch all over my calendar, it's not likely I'm going to remember the NEXT 17 days or so, either. So, having said that, here is a very brief synopsis of those days (thank goodness for digital cameras, or I'd really have NO memory whatsoever!)...
*B wanted me to take a picture of him with a pillow on his head, so I did. End of story.
*Daddy took the kids to Mesa for a couple of days to visit Nanna and Uncle Jerry, and visited the Phoenix Zoo while there.
*We headed to Tucson to Adam and Samantha's house (thanks, you guys!) for a birthday party for Grandpa Pollock (I didn't know til I got there, but this was also a par-tay for ME (take a peek at the cake--my name is on it--woo hoo!!).
*Let's see, what else...Daddy's been bringing home "little" pet bugs for the kids. They get attached to them and even name them (don't get me started). These bugs are ugly and gross, but my kids seem to enjoy them. Whatever.
*The pic of L with the hoodie on is just there cuz I thought he looked like ET. Can you say, "Phone home?"
That's it in a nutshell. I've got costumes to sew and parent teacher conferences to attend and field trips to chaperone and school festivals to help with, just to name a few, so I'm outta here. Ciao. Enjoy the pictures!

Those bugs are SICK! But Hallie's face in two of the pictures are hilarious and sooo Hallie. Me and Alyssa were laughing so hard!

That bug on Hallie's finger is massive!! I can't believe she is actually touching it. Brave girl.
Also, that pic of Ben with the pillow on his head is so weird, but so cute because Ben is so dang cute.
I love your family and can't wait to see the whole clan in a few weeks!
