There's a rhinoceros in my refrigerator...

Now doesn't that sound like a great name for a Dr. Suess book? I thought so,too! I have always really liked Dr. Suess books and now I think I must be able to identify with his way of thinking...the longer I am raising my boys the more I am convinced that Dr. Suess must have had at least 3;-). Really, it is the only way he could come up with such crazy stories! My boys do the most outrageous things, but this was probably one of the most comical. Truly, I was surprised to open my fridge to see a rhino guarding the garlic and the hershey's chocolate! I had to take a picture;-).
To all those parents of boys...

Birthday ending

Okay, last post for the day...and maybe for a while;-). The girls got to come back to the house to have pizza,cake,and ice cream. We all had a great time!

The whirlwind...continued

The baptism service was amazing , Mimi was able to come and all of the kids came in to see Zoe' be baptized. This , of course, produced many questions about why one is batized and whether or not they could do it;-). An excellent oppurtunity for James and I to share the Gospel with them again.
We also had quite a few friends over and we've been visiting others...yes, other people are actually brave/crazy enough to invite a family of 8 into their home;-). They actually have 6 children as well and we had a wonderful time with them!Unfortunately, we got no pics of the twelve kids running around...maybe next time!
We began school at the beginning of August and have been busy trying to get in the "groove" of things around here again.
Last night we were able to celebrate Gabi's 10th(I know, I can't believe it either!) birthday with her best friend. They have birthdays only 4 days apart, very handy when you are best friends! So, the moms got to take the girls out to Build A was very cool! I think we had as much fun as they did. It was a bitter sweet time though, we found out yesterday that they will be moving;-(. We know that the Lord has something great for them though...they are such a wonderful family, we will miss them. Here are the pictures from the Build A Bear adventure. Enjoy!!!

August...the month of whirlwinds

The entire month is almost passed and yet I feel as if I've hardly stepped foot in the first day of August!! Where has it gone? Well, here is a small clue ...

Swimming...of course!

...and soccer try outs;-)

...Zoe' was baptized...
