How 'bout I use my camera once and a while!!

So I went up to Chicago last week to help out with my mom, and of course, I forgot my camera. But never fear- hooray for the phone cameras! So, here are some pics from the last few weeks.

My dad asked Laurel/Scoobs to put him some leftovers together.  As she was finishing up the plate, my dad said, "Don't do anything cute!"  Laurel looked at me and under her breath said, "Too late!" haha so this is the meatloaf face dinner for dad.
On Superbowl Sunday, I went over to my friend, Melanie's house and I put the boys in the only Blue and White things they have to suport our local Colts (it's amazing how 3 yrs later, I am now rooting for the colts... but only because the Bears weren't in the super bowl!).
Sorry it is blury, but I took this picture for my sister to make her feel better while she recoups right now.  So- if you're having a bad day, look at this picture and feel all better, because Henry's pretty cute :)

Ah, Grant. So curious, so observant, and so silly.  Can you tell what he's doing? That's right!!! He's trying to "pump." haha  Good luck with that, kid! 
Well, I decided to do something a bit productive today to take my mind off my family health problems right now.  I got dressed (haha... good thing for me...jk), blogged (which I am kinda sucking at), put Henry down for a nap, (ps... Grant is walking around the room behind me saying, "I'm tired! Wow, I'm tired! Oh- I'm tired." haha.. .nap time soon? maybe?) I also decided to vacuume the stairs for the first time in maybe a year. I know- gross... but our carpet is the kind where you can't tell you need to clean it!  My parents have this blue carpet, and though it's taken QUITE THE BEATING from all us kids over the years, at least you can see that cleaning the floor ONCE A DAY is a good idea.  Now, I am trying to find other things to do to keep my mind from thinking about stuff.  Maybe a trip to the mall? haha

Just a few

I have been really bad at taking pictures, so here are 3.  As for what we've been up to? Not much.  The first two pics are from this place called The Incredible Pizza Company.  It's just like chuck-e-cheese, but more geared towards EVERYONE in the family.  It was pretty awesome for a few reasons.  All you pay for is a one time flat rate for lunch/dinner.  It's a HUGE pizza buffet with salad and desert bars plus some other foods.  Then, you get a card with as much or as little money on it as you want.   They have different dining rooms- One was a theater style that was darker inside while they played a movie while you ate lunch.  We ate our lunch in the "High School Gym" and watched sports and stuff.  There were a few other themed dining rooms that were cool.  PLUS there was a really cool kids area that Grant LOVED!  


About a two weeks ago, I was getting ready for Church, and Grant was getting a little out of control.  So I stuck him in his crib until we were ready to go.  Two minutes later, he was by my side... yep! He learned how to climb out of his crib.  Then about a week later, I was nursing Henry, and Grant was being a little TOO quiet.  When I went to check on him, I found him BACK IN HIS CRIB and holding onto his blanket ready for a nap!  Haha... funny. Well, we finally upgraded to a big boy bed.  He loves his "favorite new bed." 

Enjoy :)
