Well crap, there goes the Routan and T&C. I really don't like the T&C. But dh will be happy since now I'll only drag him to 3 dealerships.

Thanks for coming everyone! C had a fabulous time. : We had tea on the way home, blew bubbles as soon as the truck was unloaded, and then she played with the mama and baby ducks. I think she is making tea again right now, or sorting through crayons. I'm not sure which DS is happily babbling away and blowing raspberries on my leg :

I am currently downloading the 500 photos, so I will have cute pictures available soon. Plus a few good blackmail photos I think I believe DH even got a few of the mask thieves, Emans

Thanks we had fun yesterday barely made it to get E, but still lots of fun.


DoulaRN, can R still come Saturday? It's ok if she can't.



So in happy news D got the company to pay for a real hotel in August : The bummer is they will pay for that hotel, we can't use that money and go stay somewhere else. So on the one hand it's free (this is of course huge) but they don't provide anyone with a fridge or microwave and little miss M will only sleep in absolute silence. So be brainstorming feeding the kids for cheap and creating a silent space for M (will a portacrib fit in a bathroom ).

I just posted a link to the photos from yesterday at the other site. Let me know if the link doesn't work, or you want the other pictures also. I think they turned out pretty good.

Yay emans for the hotel! Will she sleep with a noise machine?

Blue, those are some great pics! I esp. love the one of S and E holding hands and C hugging Little S. I may have to order some of these!

Talked to dh about the van and he still wants to go check out the Routan and T&C. So tomorrow after he turns on my mom's swamp cooler, we're hitting the dealerships. Wish us luck! Also what color should we get? Dh is totally against red, but other than that is wide open to suggestions.

Mama of three.

We had a great time at the party yesterday! Thanks for inviting us blue! Sorry we had to leave early. H was really falling apart though by the time we got to the car. She was sound asleep before we even got to Central! It was great to see everyone. I've really got to try to make it to pg soon.

Good luck with the van elmh! Personally, I'd go with a lighter color - like silver, white, champagne, or a light blue or green. They don't show the dust we get around here nearly as much as darker colors do. And also, since dark colors absorb more heat, any attempt to reflect any heat is a plus!

Emans - I don't know if they will let you do this - but would they reserve a handicapped room for you instead of a regular one? They often have bigger bathrooms and you should be able to fit a portacrib in there. If she really needs her own quiet space it's an option.

Off to check out the birthday photos...

Cute pictures! I'm sorry we missed it. Both dd and I have the flu. Ugh. And dh is gone to CO for an interview. I'm starting to feel better today though.

Soooo, dh also has an interview on Tues morning for a job here. Well, Santa Fe, but we could stay here. The job is pretty good so I'd really appreciate thoughts/prayers for that one. I'm trying hard not to get my hopes up.

Wonderful news Comommy, we'll be sending lots of good job thoughts, call if you want to hang out with the kids anytime Sunday, we're free. The pool is kid swim temp, but not really adult temp yet.

Off to check out the pics.

Fingers totally crossed for you, comommy. Codaddy definitely needs to stay local so we don't lose you!

ASF - I read your post and immediately started singing "Schooools oooouuut, foooor the summer!" LOL

Emans - yeah for the room! Hey, with any luck M will be sleeping better by then. I know, I know, it's not that far away but N has really turned around in the last month or so and I'm impressed. If HE can start sleeping better, any baby can! LOL When we went to disney last year we did put the PnP in the bathroom, which sorta worked until we went to bed (at which point he just came in bed with us). The bathroom is fine at night, but it gets crazy loud in the morning (everyone taking showers makes the pipes really loud). Any way you can upgrade the room and just pay the difference??

Blue - the pics came out really well!! Thanks so much!

Elmh - I guess your DH just wants to see for himself how much the T&C sucks. So humor him, go look at it, and let the van speak for itself. LOL Just don't say "told ya so" within earshot


So I just saw my doctor a little while ago and he also thinks my tumor has come back. I'm getting an MRI asap (at UNMH, please help me, I can't handle their billing screwups!). I'm just really, really, concerned that if it's come back and I have to have surgery I won't be able to do my internship. That would really suck.

Big Hugs Crazy!!!!!!!! Hope its NOT what you think. That kind of stuff is not permitted in our group.

Eman- R is welcome really its a loose gathering. No cool games like at your party. Just hanging out really. But you better bring Miss M too.

Elm- I like red. My last three cars/vans were red.

ASF=YAY!!

COMommy- Toes and Fingers crossed !!!! Hope you feel better soon!!! I want to see you tomorrow.

Peace love- Glad you are feeling better.

Yeah Elm, that's awesome!!!!!!! Thanks for the good thoughts, everyone. My "ASAP" MRI isn't scheduled until June. I think I'm going to ask the doc to have me seen over at Pres. . .things always go much quicker and smoother over there.

Crazy, gotta love the medical field. Let's use that as a positive sign that it's not that serious.

Crazy, That's just crazy that it's not until June.

Details on the Odyssey: It's blue, has power doors on both sides and the windows on the sliding doors roll down making S very happy (she was always jealous of ours.) It's the mid-range van so somewhat fancy (for us at least) but not over the top fancy. Come to open gym on Monday and ya'll can see it.
