Monday musings

One of the reasons I love Arizona so much; our gorgeous sunsets. This one I took through the branches of our Mesquite tree.

Things are a little slower, but mommy has caught yet another cold, it is so hard to have a compromised immune system, and I get sick more than the kids. Hopefully this cold will be short and I can get on with panning our spring garden, I did manage to do 4 loads of laundry, and daddy came home early today, not having to work his second job (he has three) because it was Presidents day today. He did some of Meghan's homeschooling with her today; Handwriting Without Tears, Beyond Speech Therapy, and she and I did her music, even though it was art day today.

I liked this one of Meghan, she can be so goofy, asking me to take pictures, then ducking and weaving to prevent it. LOL I caught her here. She keeps telling us she loves her sisters, they still push each other down, vie for attention, and bicker over who sits on the swing, but they do love one another. Well, Kara and Meghan do, we are not certain about Amanda yet.

Julia took some of pictures of the girls, I Photoshopped a couple of them, Julia does such a good job with her pictures. She and I both love taking them.

Our silly bag baby; Kara puts everything on her head, this bag was huge and open at the bottom, she will put leggings on her head and walk into walls too. We do not comprehend why Kara enjoys this, but it is pretty fun to watch. We keep all Ziploc bags out of her reach, she put them on and cannot remove them, pretty scary. I even go so far as to close them completely before I put them out of reach.

Kara loves to play with the mouse and she really looks like she knows what she is doing. After I snapped these pictures she threw the mouse and the keyboard off my decrepit desk.

Amanda has learned to climb on the sofa, and is exploring with her new found skill, the adrenaline rushes are wearing me out, she nearly falls off everything. Yikes.
Amanda on top of her new table, we use this for eating (sometimes) She is still yellow, we think we need to take her back to a doctor to be certain she is OK. She still has killer breath even after her teeth were worked on, the dentist said it could be from gum disease, but her gums look so much better. Truly, her breath is nauseating, it makes other folks want to put her down. Daddy and mommy hold her and love her despite the smell, she gets her teeth brushed more than the other girls though...

That poor top, she stretched it out beyond recognition, she truly is a little scamp, and adorable, sweet, funny, and hyperactive to the extreme.
This is her after I attempted to get her to drink water, she refuses to take liquids in a normal way, something else we worry about. Why a child would not drink fluids is beyond me, she will take a tablespoon at a time, but no more than that.

Kris, thanks for the pictures. I'm sorry I don't visit here as often as I should. Your girlies are so cute though I'm sure they are a handful. I hope you get feeling better, too. By the way tonight I got the Ukraine post-adoption report to print with NO problem at all (the problem before was that the cartridge was so low on ink!!)

The girls pictures are just priceless. I sure hope you get to feeling better. It sure has been a rough winter for so many. I dont know how you do it keeping up with three litttle girls while sick has to be so exhausting.
Will be praying for a fast recovery hope you and the girls get feeling better.
