Uncle Brian

It hit me like a ton of bricks that I have failed to mention Uncle Brian in our blog.  How on earth could I have left him out thus far? He is a tremendous Uncle to our three kids.   He wears them out while playing werestle mania in the basement (it's a real sight to see), he takes the boys off my hands when I need a breather, he is so sweet to Caroline, and he laughs the hardest at my Jack and Thomas stories. 

Oh yeah, all of this does not make up for the 20 plus years of torture growing up.  But it's a start!!!

What goes with Cinnamon Rolls? ...MILK!

It's a good thing Corey went to Sam's to get milk for the week because I made cinnamon rolls for the first time on Tuesday.   What compliments cinnamon rolls better than milk?  Yummy!

Desatin, No Problem!

Last week I stumbled onto a pile of creamy, white Desatin smeared all over the dinning room floor.  Hmmmmm.  I instantly knew who the culprit was due to the fact that both Thomas and Caroline were napping.  I quickly wiped up the mess and then I waited to see what Jack would do when he came back to the dining room and saw that the white goop was gone.  I know Jack all too well, and I knew that he was going to try to clean the mess up by himself before telling me about it.

Seconds later I peek upstairs to find the hall closet light on and I see Jack  looking for something.  I let him find what he is looking for and I waited in the kitchen for his next move.  Ah ha!  A new roll of paper towels came bounding down the stairs and Jack quickly came down after it.  He rounded the corner with his paper towels in hand and then stopped abruptly as he noticed the mess was gone.  I was spying on him from the hallway and trying so hard not to laugh out loud.  He had this quizzical expression on his face and before I knew it he was running toward me to tell me he 'accidently' made a mess and that he couldn't find the mess anymore.

I confessed that I cleaned it up first and that I was watching him to see how he was going to resolve the issue.  He then admitted that he had a rash on his bottom, applied the Desatin himself (which he has never done before for good reason), and then spilled a ton on Desatin on the floor and wanted to clean it up before I could get mad about it.  His words, not mine.  We both had a good laugh and then I had him go to the bathroom to wash his hands. Yuck.

Farewell Spring , Hello Summer!

 Thomas got his first haircut with the clippers! 
He looks so old and so much more like Jack!

 Katie turned the big 3-0! 
The high school gang got together to celebrate over dinner at Gram and Dun and drinks in Waldo!  We had such a fantastic time out on the town!
Thanks to Caitlin, Carrie, Katie and Molly for a fun evening!

 The Boddicker babes went to Grandpa Darby's pool for the first time this summer over Memorial Day Weekend.  Caroline looked pretty cute in her 3T swimsuit!

 Jack really wanted a T-Rex Takedown for his fourth Birthday! 
He saw this toy one time at Target and couldn't stop talking about it! 
Thank goodness Mom and Dad came through! 

The O'Shea and Boddicker babes celebrated Jack's Birthday! 
So typical that one Boddicker child  refused to face the camera!  Good work Caroline!

Jack turns 4!

Happy Fourth Birthday Jack!  We love you so much!  Life just would not be nearly as exciting or sweet without you!
 Dad, Mom, Thomas, Caroline & Baby # 4
