Life with my boys...

Isn't he a love?

Ricky loves life.
A picture we sent to dad ....whom he loves.....when he was out of town for work....      

 Does anyone see trouble here??????? AAAAHHHHH!
Yes, I'm still trying to figure out how to child proof for Stas! Who would have thought that childproofing meant getting rid of every piece of movable furniture. Even slightly movable.

Does anyone know this cartoon character? I don't know his name, saw him on TV. Cracks me up though....red hair and the same blue glasses. Not nearly as cute as my little red-head though.

Well, sort of a lame update, I know. But, I did it. 

Oooh, Ricky is on his 4th  (yes, you read that right!!!) round of strep. Was told it is time for those spongy adenoids to come out.....scary!!! I'm told they harbor the strep. This sounds dreadful.

Blessings to you and please pray for safety for Stas as he is a runner...and in to everything. Please pray for the families trying to bring their sweet children home from  Eastern Europe.


  1. Gretchen,
    This is a really cute post. I love all of the pictures of the boys. They are adorable.

  2. That wasn't lame Gretchen :) They are so adorable you really wouldn't even have to SAY anything...we could just look at your sweet boys ;)

    But WOWZER you have the GOOD washer and dryer, huh?....yeah. You should see mine. My washer stops working whenever it feels like it, so I have to lift the lid and drop it like 10 times in a row and then it starts again. Boo. I'm green with envy. And I'm sending a picture of yours to Rich at work...so he feels guilty ;)

    I don't know that cartoon...but it IS funny how much they look alike :)

  3. here was his reply:

    1 of the 7 deadly sins – ENVY….

  4. Hey Jodi, my washer bounces around like a mexican jumping washer on crack...I feel your pain...oh hi, gretchen...your boys sure are cute... get those dadgum adenoids OUT!! Love ya! Renee

  5. Sorry about the washers guys....truly. I feel blessed to have them....trust me.

  6. The boys just keep getting cuter!! Sounds like your days are full of busy boys and FUN! I love the cartoon character too...looks alot like Ricky!!

  7. I loved the update and like Jodi, could just look at pictures if that's all you had time to do. I know I shouldn't talk since it's been forever since I've posted anything on my blog but at least I finally got something up last night. Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall in Jodi's house? I loved Rich's response. They could probably take their act on the road. tee hee hee Are you guys thawing out yet? It's going to be 91 here on Monday and you can already guess who is NOT READY to see the thermometer reading that high yet.

  8. OH Gretchen...Ricky and Stas are SO stinking cute! I just want to squeeze them both :)

  9. Your boys are so precious! Happy Easter!
