New Furniture

As promised here are some quick pics of some of the stuff we got at NFM.  We did get a tv too,  but I am not taking a pic of the tv (this was really on Brent's want list, I could have found something else, BUT-ya know, sometimes you have to let the man win-hahaha)  I (we) had finally decided on some new patio furniture, but all they had out were some gas grills, guess it was a little early yet.  AND we were still a little nervous that the credit would "magically" disappear, so we went ahead and got a few other things on our "wants" list.

Bar Stools. 
These suckers are heavy and sturdy.  Hoping they last a LONG time.  My nephews aren't going to be to happy with us when they find out the don't swivel like our others!
Sofa Table. 
I like this a lot.  Its a little bigger than I anticipated (or remembered), but its still good.  Now just need to get up my pics and put a few little "something's" on the bottom shelf.  HOWEVER-its a lot easier to dust when there is nothing on it right??
Much to her brother's dismay we got Maddison a desk for her room.  She got to pick it out (with a definate price point), and this is what she picked. 
"I" really wanted her to get this cute white wood one, but this is what she wanted. She eagerly did her spelling homework on it last night.
After the desk pick out, you can only imagine the conversations taking place between the older brother and his parents.  So he also got something.  It was some wii game.  I think Indiana Jones maybe???  He was happy after that.

The kids didn't have school on the Monday that we went to NFM.  The kids were troopers the whole time we were there a while, ( 3 hours).  Thank goodness for escalators, strollers that look like cars, and movie projection screens that play Night at the Museum 2 repeatedly!!

We also spent the night in a hotel.  It was a really fun "getaway".

Mr. Helper

Brent was putting some non skid/mark mat "thing-y's" on our new bar stools tonight and Owen thought he needed to help. He came downstairs carrying his tools and toolbox. Oh-We really do have 2 other children, but they didn't think this was very exciting at all. Thus they are not in this video.

Ickies at Home

Sunday night G came up to me and said, "I don't think I feel very good...I want to go home!"  Oh boy...this was bad when he wants to leave his friends and a party with unlimited amounts of food to GO HOME.  We hit the road fast.  He came home and things get the idea.  Things started flowing.  (THAT IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW).  About 2am Maddison started in as well. ...They have been down since.  Today I kept them home from school ONE more day to be safe.  Still a little puny, but I want them to be fairly back to normal before I send them back to their GERM INFESTED SCHOOLS.  I know the schools can't help it, but from what I hear it sounds like they need to open the doors and windows for about 12 hours and air the rooms OUT. 

So that is what has been going on here...

ON A POSITIVE NOTE.  A couple of weeks ago we hit NFM to use up our credit.  IT WORKED and our furniture was delivered this morning.  Right on time.  The delivery gentlemen were very nice and polite.  I will post some pics soon.

Maddison Cheering

Here is a quick video of Maddison Cheering at the girls bb game during half time. She had a great time.
