So long!....for a week

We are heading to Garden City, SC, for a week! I am so excited! I personally haven't been to the beach since I was pregnant w/ Ben, which was....gosh....5 years ago! I can't wait to see the kids playing on the beach and watching Lukey's first beach experience! I so need a vacay from work and just everyday life it's not even funny!
We'll be back next Sat. and hopefully I'll have lots of cute pictures to post!
Have a great week!

Ben is funny, he just says funny, random things. I want to start writing down funny stuff he is saying or else I will forget. I actually want to start writing down funny stuff all my kids say. I know Madeline has said plenty of stuff that I just knew I would remember and of course I have forgotten. So here are some things Ben has been saying lately....

We had some whipped cream left over from sundaes we made for Father's Day and he had some pudding for dessert last night and told me he wanted to put some "wooden" cream on his pudding.

Also last night he had taken his shirt off and I asked him what he did with it and he said "I put it in my dirty cloths "hamster".

One last thing that stands out is he has a shirt with a guy on a surfboard and at first he really thought and would argue with you that it was a snail on a pickle. What a funny little guy!

Little Fishes

We headed to Austin, Tx late last week and over the weekend, for Matt's brothers high school graduation. We had a great visit and Madeline and Ben had a blast swimming almost the entire time!

We didn't take Lukey along for the this trip, he stayed with my parents, but he will definitley be joining us the next visit.

Luke wanted to help his daddy cut the grass the other night, so badly!
One day little guy, one day!

Well, Ben is still sick. This is going on day 5 for him. I can't recall him ever being this sick before. Thursday night it started with the vomiting and continued that night and into the next day. Then the diarrhea kicked in. Then the fever. The whole time he has been lying around doing nothing. Totally unlike him. He has been drinking and has had a few nibbles of food here and there. Yesterday morning he perked up and ate some breakfest, but then he was back on the couch complaining of his tummy hurting and the diarrhea started back up. Guess were he is now, yep on the couch asleep. He is a sick little boy, I tell ya! Thankfully no one else has gotten sick(yet)!
Not being able to get out of the house for the last few days, is not good for mama either. I get depressed. I have a tendancy towards depression anyway, but being cooped up is not good for me mentally. By the 5th day I don't want to shower or clean or cook or do much of anything but lay on the couch.
Most importantly though I just want my boy to get better! If he's not better by tomorrow, we may have to make a trip to the doctor, which I have been putting off cause I know I will just get the "It's a virus" and be out $25 for the copay. I'm hoping he will be a new boy tomorrow and we won't have to even worry about it!
If you think about it, just say a prayer for my little guy!

Friday night after work I went grocery shopping because we were in a bad way. I usually have to go twice since we run out of something or another. Saturday morning Ben woke up and wanted some cereal for breakfest and looked in the frig and goes,
"Mama you got milk, I'm so proud of you!!"

Ahh, it's so nice when you can make your kids proud huh?

Here is my boy. My funny, adorable little man, who loves to laugh and watch his big sister and brother. Who loves balls and shoes. Who is starting to babble and to dance. Who loves to eat and loves his daddy! He has completed our family and I can not imagine or remember our life without him in it!

I love you Lukey-Boo.
