Nothing too exciting to report here.Bracelets went out yesterday.After I sealed them all I found one little bundle sitting all by it's lonesome ... could not go back and unseal them all.Looked and felt as though each package did indeed have bracelets in them,the question is,were they all the right order amounts?So please,if anyone doesn't get what they ordered let me know.The computer continues to put me into crazy head spins and by the time I processed all the orders I was so not thinking clearly.Speaking of computer induced crazy head spins,I'll make this brief.Am I capable of brief you ask ... maybe.The day flew by.Mark was home at I think 1 am or so last night.I was long in bed seeing that Saturday is our long early morning run.Jess did 12 and I did 8 and we finished about the same time.Gives you an idea of my pace.At this rate I'll be lucky to complete the marathon by dusk.Hell or high water I'll finish though.My monies on hell.Tonight Matt's mom came.She is here until Monday morning.She was up north for a week long class on dyslexia.There was a day that involved talk on ADD/ADHD ... I'll be picking her brain for any pointers for Mr.Joe,that's for sure.We all had a really nice evening together.Good food and good company.Jess,Matt,Jean,Taylor and Mark finished the night off with Bananagrams.Fun game if you can spell,which is what took me out of the game from the get go.Sheer torture for me.Church and miscellaneous stuff tomorrow.I leave you with some randomness.A few pictures mainly.One,as you can easily tell,is super blurry.I couldn't get my camera out and properly ready,before possibly losing the shot all together .. do you see it?Zoey up on her knees?Wow ... that is another amazing first.Captured,not pretty but at least captured on film.The picture of Joe ...classic Joe.My boys,especially Joe, are so into dress up.On any given day they are donning one costume or another.This costume,worthy of a picture.The rest ... just Zoey being Zoey.There's a video from my camera.Wanted you to see her "dancing".Didn't have time to edit it down.Feel free to skip it after you see her dancing at the beginning.The rest is cute,but a little long and SUPER noisy.Ignore my grating voice and Jake's incessant xylophone playing.Pause the blog music if you want to hear ... I say skip the noise cuz it's serious noise.That's all I got.Not bad.Not exactly brief but not bad. video

I see I am not the only late night owl tonight. I soooo should be finishing up my packing. Zoey dances EXACTLY like Ella. How cute are they? And way to go getting up on her knees!!!I really enjoyed just seeing her in action. Wish you were going to UT with me. It would be fun!! Hopefully I can somehow join you guys when Lacey and Jax are down in a couple of weeks.

OMG, she's on her knees!! So exciting. Go Zoey go!

Lacey said...

I so can't wait to see you guys. My family far away. I'm thinking probably the 17th or 18th, or even that Sunday. The 19th they have a Dodger game and the 20th we head to the Magic Kingdom. Let me know if any of those days are better than the other.

Heather this is Ray that is not noise that is the Dodgers,Cardnial game. Zoey is just to cutie I love the pix and I like the one when she is on her knees way to go Zoey. The where she is asleep is the best, I love to watch Jax sleep before I go to work. So peace full.

it is so exciting to see her on her knees. The next step, standing. Woohoo what an accomplishment. Love the picture of her in the crib.

I just LOVE to see her 'dancing' and doing so well. Thank you for sharing your amazing family!

Oh my god she is just so adorable! Love the way she rolls from A to B, she definately knows how to get there, thats fantastic! I can't wait for my little girl to be stiing up so well on her own, I know it seems to be taking a long time especially when I see some of the other kids doing so well so early on, but patience is something I've definately learnt in this 1 year, and whenever she's ready will be fine by me.
Love the video Zoey's a real entertainer :)

So fun to see the video...Zoey is just precious, I love how she hugged on her dolly and then chucked her! Heather, how exciting that she is getting on her knees...Zoey you are doing so great!!!

I cracked up at the costume darning Joe and the incessant xylophone playing by Jake...such familiarity to our home...you gotta love boys! :)

Hiya! Yeah, it's a great video. You can click on it in the corner where it says YouTube and it will take you to the site--from there on the right hand side there is a code that says 'embed'--you can copy and paste that in blogger and it should bring up the video when you post. Just make sure you get the whole code--I always mess that up...lol

LOVE the bracelets and I just want to snuggle Zoey!!!

Received our bracelets today, all were there. Love them. Also love the pictures of Miss Zoey - she is getting to be such a big girl and what accomplishments! We've watched the video of her "dancing" several times.

Could you post your "absolute last day" for donations for your and Jess' Nike marathon. I know you had mentioned it in one of your blogs, but I can't find it. I was thinking it was some time in September, but....

Continued prayers for all -

So I must comment on Joe....what a fabulous costume!! I have to say Heather, I looked at this picture for a couple of minutes and memories of my Colin raced through my head. Such a big smile on my face!! Full of energy and entertainment I see in your boy!!!

Princess Zoey is coming along by leaps and bounds. What a precious angel you have, well actually you have 6!! Do hope we can get together sometime. xoxo
