Time in the Basement

Due to the storms passing through our area the family got to spend time in our lovely, unfinished, wet basement. Daniel didn't seem to mind at all. Rachel had all kinds of questions. Sarah nursed.

Another Daniel-ism

Recently, Daniel was playing with Daddy's tape measure. He tried to measure my head and told me, "I'm measuring you to see how old you are."

Digital camera update: After Daniel washed our newest digital camera in the dishwater, Rachel lost our older, more expensive one. Since the federal government was so kind as to return some of our own money to us in the form of an economic stimulus check, we got a new camera! I'm kicking myself for ordering it from Best Buy... you would think I would have learned my lesson from the laptop fiasco. Their website said this camera had a rechargeable battery and it was included. It was not. I called to complain. They sent me a rechargeable battery - problem is that the camera will not charge the battery with the USB cord, which means I now have a nice rechargeable battery and no way to charge it. When I called again to complain, their website had been fixed, and a note was made on my complaint that there was nothing to fix on the website (as if it had been right all along!!! If it was correct in the first place, why did they agree to send me a battery???) So, I'm waiting on someone else to call me about the matter.

The bottom line is that I can actually start posting pictures again!!! Just not right now :)

Overheard at dinner

Rachel and her friend Bryce had just asked to be excused from dinner and were told yes. Daniel was pushing back from the table to join them outside when I told him, "No. Say, 'May I be excused please?'" He looked at me very seriously and said, "Yes."

To answer my comment on Daniel's post below about what tomorrow has in store, now he tells my glasses, hair, nose and teeth, "I lub you, glasses" and so on. Then they snore and evidently go to sleep. The snore has turned into somewhat of a pig snort - it cracks us both up :)
