All in a 5 Minute Window

Ever watch the show 24? I hate it but my husband loves it. I usually watch 35 seconds and then go to bed so I am quite familiar with how the show starts. Keiffer Sutherland comes on in his oh-so-manly and mysterious voice and says: "the following takes place between 9am and 10am" (or whatever time it may be). So, imagine me speaking in Keiffer's voice...or maybe just imagine him get the point. Ehem, here we go:
The following takes place between 1:40pm and 1:45pm.......
The location, the Ramsey kitchen (and also bathroom).
The kids have been fed lunch AND a snack.
"Caeden, Suzy are you hungry?"
Mom begins to make herself a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich.
Enter Caeden..."I want a peanut butter and jelly sandwhich, cut up like dinosaurs."
"Okay buddy."
Enter Suzy...."Mommy, I need to go potty!!!!"
Run to potty.
Caeden- "Mommy, I want some apple juice."
"Hang on, I'm helping Suzy, I'll be right there."
Suzy- "Mommy leave, close the door." okay.
Caeden- "Mommy.....I want some apple juuuuuuuice!!!!"
"Caeden, the apple juice isn't ready yet." Note frozen can of apple juice concentrate on counter.
Caeden- "But I'm thirstyyyyyyyyyyyy."
"Caeden, get some ice water and the apple juice will be ready soon."
Suzy- "Mommy, I'm done and I need a towel!"
Help Suzy get a towel and wipe the bottom...wash hands...back to Caeden.
Caeden- "But I can't get the ice!!!" Get Caeden's ice.
Caeden- "I want to get the water." Let Caeden get the water...the same way he COULD have gotten the ice.
Resume making sandwhiches.
"Suzy, do you want a sandwhich?"
Suzy- "No."
Finish sandwhiches.
Suzy- "Mommy, I want a sandwhich."
Start making Suzy a sandwhich.
Suzy- "My underwear are backwards!!!!" Turn Suzy's underwear right side out and give them back to her.
Resume making Suzy a sandwhich.
Caeden- "Mommy, I spilled my water!! My pants are cold!!!!" Help Caeden get his cold, wet pants off and pick up the ice.
"Suzy do you want your sandwhich cut in dinosaurs, like Caeden's?"
Suzy- "Yes."
Cut Suzy's sandwhich.
Suzy- "I don't want it cut up!!!!"

Is it time for bed yet?? :)

A Few Spring Pictures

We have been so enjoying this nice warm weather! On Saturday Gavin had a soccer game. He is just doing so well with it and seems to enjoy it a lot. Here's a few pics of the big game!!

The Nathan Update

I had my 25 week apt. yesterday and everything looks great! We had another ultrasound with the high risk doctor and Nathan is measuring right on track. He is almost 2 lbs. and actually about two days ahead of my due date (hey, I'll take whatever I can get here). We are so thankful to see him doing so well and just looking so forward to meeting this little man. I am going to TRY to get some ultrasound pictures up here but the scanner and I have had only brief and dare I say, fruitless encounters. He looks great though! I go back in four weeks for another ultrasound and my glucose screening. After that I will go every two weeks. Thanks so much for all of the prayers and encouraging words. You have confirmed, yet again, that we truly have the greatest friends and family in the world!

Hair Emergency!

Alright buddies, I NEED your advice!! Amy is coming home in a couple weeks (I am so freaking excited). Not only am I beyond pumped to see her but I am also pretty excited to get a hair cut since it's been well over six months since my last...sigh.
So here is my question...I am really tempted to go short again but my best friend is getting married in July and I am a bridesmaid. I will be 8 months pregnant and I'm worried that having really short hair will make me look even more humongous, ya know, my head will look too small for my body or something?
I really LOVED it when she cut it like in the picture but I can't go blonde this time obviously so my question is, what do we think of the cut without the blonde flair? Should I go that short or keep it longer??

The Almost Bad Word

Today our family went to Walmart. In all honesty, if there is ANY place that could bring a swear word to my would probably be Walmart. But today, I was not the offender. Today, it was Gavin.
We were all together, Mom with a cart of Easter basket goodies (well, a few anyway, apparently the economy has hit the Easter Bunny too)and Dad was pushing the cart with three little blonde children.
As we are leaving the area with all the toys the boys had been asking (also begging, pleading and bartering their souls) for a spiderman video game that you plug into the television. We, of course, had to turn them down, much to their total despair. As we were walking away from the game out it came..."SUCK".
Mike froze, I froze, we all froze.
Mike was the first to respond.
"Gavin what did you say?"
"SUCK!Suck, Suck, Suck!!!"
"Gavin Michael Ramsey, you know that we do NOT say that word. It is not nice."
"What word?"
(Insert Mike's loud gulp) "Suck. It isn't a nice word and we don't say it."
"But daddy, I didn't say that!" At this point his little eyes are so wide and innocent. And we now remember that Gavin sometimes has difficult pronouncing certain sounds like "tr" and "ch" and "th".
"Okay Gavin, show me what you are talking about."
He gently leads us over to the toy isle pointing happily to a row of CHALK. :)
