Narek, NA-REK!

Okay, who remembers the earlier post about the "abnormal happenings" that were occurring in my house? You know - the self jumping bouncer, and the microwave turned Johnny 5... "No Disassemble!" Anyone, anyone?
Anyway, things had quieted down on the home front, and I had finally talked myself into all sorts of wishful thinking, when there was yet another episode. About a week ago, Rob and I were in bed - totally asleep (seeing as how it was 3:08 am) when suddenly our bedroom lights turned themselves on. There were a few seconds of total confusion on my part, and then absolute fear sank in. All I could say in my completely horrified voice was, "Rob?!" He shot up, looked around the room, and then the lights turned themselves off again. They were on for maybe a total of fifteen seconds, but I think that's the most afraid I've ever been. It took EVERYTHING in me to go and check on my sleeping babies. I then climbed back to bed, and lay there, HORRIFIED for a good hour trying to go back to sleep. I assumed that Rob shared my fear - but seeing as how he was already snoring by the time I got back into bed showed me otherwise. Then there was the next morning when I said, "remember how the lights went on last night?" Assuming it had been on his mind as much as mine - and he responded, " Huh? Oh yeah! That was kind of weird."
The next night I was really nervous that it would happen again. I slept as close to Rob as possible, but got a bit scared when I woke up, looked at the clock, and it was exactly 3:08 am.

"Old MacDonald had a farm" is one of Maddie's favorite songs to sing, so imagine her delight when we visited the petting zoo. We had fun and bruises with Maggie, and got to meet Liam for the first time. I think the kids had a ball, even though Jude spent most of the afternoon snorting.

I'd like to take a quick second to thank all of you that sent emails, cards, and flowers after Stefanie's blog post yesterday. As many of you know, she announced that I had been replaced by a new friend, Lindsay Lohan. This being because Stefanie and Lindsay "apparently" exchanged glances at the gym yesterday. I guess that if I'm going to be replaced by anyone, Lindsay Lohan is fair competition (although I'm sure she doesn't have my wit and/or sparkling personality - she's got me in number of celebrity friends).
So, to prove herself, Stefanie and I decided to go to the gym at 6:30 this morning to meet up with this new "BFF" of Stef's. Not only was there no Lindsay Lohan - there was no Stefanie either. Lies, I tell you - ALL LIES! There were a few "Lindsay possibilities" but when I got closer I realized that they were really just sixty year old women that loved plastic surgery...ick! Anyway, I'm sure Stefanie will come crawling back this afternoon, so don't worry about me my dear friends - I will survive. I mean, I still have Mary and Tara - but Stef only has imaginary Hollywood types that live in her fantasies. Oh yeah, and Stefanie - I'm having a party tonight at 9:00 on the 9th hole at the Thanksgiving Point Golf Course. I'll see ya there, chump.

Piece of Cake

Don't worry, Trina...this was AFTER your cake was put in the oven. These are just bowl leftovers.

Jude's Birthday

No, Jude's not one yet, but he's had several "earth-days" this summer. Here they are celebrating. Maddie sings the song, gives presents (in this case it was my guitar capo - which he is holding) and of course, they MUST wear hats. Happy 463rd "earth-day-to-you" Jude.

I have about a gazillion things I wanted to post today, but I'm going to bypass all of those, and just get to this...seeing as how it's the most important. My friend Stef did this celebrity look alike thing on her blog, so I decided to give it a whirl. I scanned my picture, and just as we ALL figured, Drew Barrymore popped up (to be honest, sometimes the resemblance even freaks me out.) But does anything else about my "celebrity-look-alikes" seem odd? Is there something my parents aren't telling me?

This Little Piggy

Jude is seven and a half months old now. He's completely mobile - loves to crawl, pull himself up onto everything, and is slowly learning to walk along side of the couch. Yet, the kid still doesn't talk. And when I say talk, I don't mean, "hey mom and dad - I'm going out for a burger.." I mean no ramblings, no babblings, nothing. The only reason we know he has vocal cords is the fact that he laughs all the time. He has however, decided to take up snorting.
