Stopping by...

So this is going to be quick. I haven't posted in a couple of weeks and if things go the way that they look to go, I won't be posting for a couple of weeks, either. I had family in town all last week, and now I'm doing a freelance job on top of final essays and exams and doing grades over the next two weeks. So most of my spare time will be spent working. I know that like two people are upset with not getting more pictures, so here are my excuses. Just know that when I come back, there will be lots to update. We even got a gecko! It eats worms, which is super gross. :) Alright then, back to work for me.

So here's a bunch of stuff.

I've been MIA. Yep. I'm tired. And I haven't been blogging. So here's the last two weeks in review.

I spent five hours cleaning in one day about a week and a half ago. Frankie found ways to keep himself entertained. And don't worry, I don't clean like this more than a couple of times a year.

Frankie has loved watching our tomato plant this summer. I didn't get my garden in this year (I was too sick around planting time), so we've made do with the one plant. We recently pulled off our first two tomatoes, and they were delicious. I'm the only one that actually ate any, though - my boys are picky eaters. See how happy he looks?

Naked video games and eating cereal out of the bag. Naked Wii bowling preceded this round of Skate 2.

Swimming in the kiddie pool in the front yard; less mosquitoes out there, as well as more neighbors to laugh at us.

Jumping in the bounce house at the zoo. He didn't really get into it until other kids came around and jumped with him. He loved it.

Don't take my picture, yo.

Swimming in the pool at some of our bff's Dan & Annie's apartment complex. Unfortunately, this is the best picture I got. Frankie swam the entire length of the pool with assistance from his water wings. I think the kid is ready for swim lessons!

We went to our friends' house for the 4th; they also happen to live just a few blocks away. We love our 'hood and all of the friends we've made here. Frankie was loving his 4th of July hot dog with buddy Ezra. Delicious! (Ezzy is making his 'I just ate my 3rd hot dog' face.) Thanks for having us, Beth, Joel, and boyz!

Party host and party animal Joel set off some fireworks for the kids. Frankie was impressed with the show, but not so much with the noise.

Finally, I decided to take a nap this afternoon; as I said at the beginning, I've been TIRED lately. It might have been a bad idea - I woke up to find this happening:

Bridget now has a sexy lion cut. Juston figured that if he was cleaning the house, he might as well cut down on dog hair at the same time! Those 50 cent church bazaar clippers have sure come in handy.

Big belly, baby Ferb. 21 weeks, 4 days.

That's all for now. We did get some new sweet and cheap furniture from craigslist and a 'side of the road' operation nearby, so we'll post that soon.
