The Baby Kisser!

We have a baby kisser in our house!!!
His name is...
and he kisses the baby about 100 times a day! And when he does I MUST say "You are a baby kisser!" If I don't say it he reminds me to!
Here's our baby kisser.

He's going to be SUCH a GREAT big brother!!!

James' Crazy Beard

Actually I am not even sure it can be called a beard offically. I do not know what to call it, except crazy! He has had some strange ones in the past but this one is right up there with the strangest! Are you ready to see it??? I would ask everyone who reads this to call him and tell him how ridiculous it is but that seems to encourage him to grow it even longer (believe me I have tried this tactic!). OK, here he is.

He's lucky that I love him SOOOO much. Maybe I should cut it off while he is sleeping?!?!?!?

Oh, and if you want to call Jamie's friend, Danielle, here is her phone number! Good luck to ya!

Quick post

I have to post a quick post because I just teased Val for not posting on her blog!

The boys are in the swing of things with school and Mike with football too.
Jamie wakes up at 6:00 every morning ready to go. He LOVES it. He is bummed out on weekends because he can't go to school.
Mike isn't quite that excited but he doesn't mind school. He really likes his Science teacher, Mr. Finnegan. He's "the coolest teacher in the world!
I miss my Kortney Loo like crazy. I wish she were here. It would even be worth wrestling her out of bed every morning!!

Here's some pics of the first day of school.

Note how dark it is in the pic of Jamie! The first day I woke him up and said "good morning" he opened his eyes, said "Mom, it's not morning, it's night time , and closed his eyes!

Also note the Syracuse attire on Mike!

Still trying to get used to Tropical storms, hurricanes, and tornados!!

We finally got too tired to wait for Ernesto any longer and fell asleep, about a half hour before he finally made landfall near Southport. We lost power overnight and this morning the yard was a MESS with branches but other than that (and being woken up several times by wind that sounded like it was going to take the roof off) it wasn't so bad.

Here's what the local paper had to say~

Ernesto came ashore around 11:30 p.m. Thursday near Southport as a strong tropical storm, according to the National Weather Service. The strongest wind gusts were 74 mph, reported at Johnnie Mercers Fishing Pier in Wrightsville Beach. The highest rainfall amount -- nearly 12 inches -- was reported at Surf City.The most common damage being reported this morning came from the wind, which downed branches and other debris. Heavy rain left some roads flooded early Friday, though only scattered pools of water remained this morning.

Piece of cake!! Even better news is that school was cancelled due to hazardous road conditions. I told Mike that school was closed so that kids could help their moms clean up their yards. He didn't believe me but cleaned up the yard anyways! What a good boy!

So to sum it all it all up,

12 inches of rain, a very looooong time waiting, and a few branches in the yard later and we are all fine!
