Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Zeke's-In-The-Tub!

One of Lindsay's chores today was to brush Zeke. While brushing him, she thought that it was time for him to get a bath since it has been a while. Zeke stays indoors all the time so he does not get dirty but Lindsay thought it was time for him to get freshened up a bit. Luckily, he does not fight us while getting washed - just a lot of meowing. After drying himself all off, Zeke is looking his finest . . . not bad for being almost 15 years old.

Wii Want To Wish You A . . .

to family and friends. . .

. . . and a special Valentine from Lindsay and Caleb to all kids, and big kids at heart -


I think the Wii Valentine is funny so I had to include it too. Who is going to be player 1 and player 2 has caused many arguments between our kids. Where's the love?? When mom & dad play Wii instead!!
P.S. This is my 100th post, but who's counting?! :)

Yoga Class

Now offering an 8 week beginning yoga class in our home for those, regardless of age, shape or size, who want to experience the many benefits of experience or flexibility required. This beginning class will teach each student yoga fundamentals such as alignments, breathing, flexibility and relaxation techniques.

Our instructor is a compassionate and knowledgeable professional who loves what she does. Class size is limited so
pre-registration is necessary.
Yoga mats will be provided.

As you can see, the class is almost full. I was told that the chimpanzee is an excellent instructor. Lindsay had the "studio" set up one day and asked me to take a picture. I thought it was so cute how she thought to use paper for their mats. I smile every time I look at this picture. I love it when they are creative and use their imagination.

Lindsay's Birthday Slumber Party

Lindsay had a slumber party for her 11th birthday last weekend. She had 5 of her friends come and celebrate with her. This was the first year that I did not plan any games for the evening. In years past, I always had games planned for the kids to play at their parties. This year, I told myself and Lindsay that they were old enough to entertain themselves. That's less stress for me!
The girls were funny to listen to. They all pretended to have different accents from around the world and they talked like that for most of the night. For example, Emily was from Australia, Savannah was from England and Sierra was from Kentucky. Sierra had the whole "redneck thang goen on". It was hilarious!!! They played Wii for awhile, had a few imagination stories they acted out, watched the American Girl Kit movie, among a few other things that kept them entertained. They sang to Lindsay as she blew out her candles from her cookies and Lindsay loved all of her gifts.
I told Lindsay ahead of time that she was NOT going to stay up all night. If it was up to her, she would since she is a night owl like me. So the girls went in the spare bedroom around midnight to watch some Disney, play games on their DS and talk. At 1 am I told them to turn everything off and it was time for bed. I was pretty proud of them because they were asleep shortly after 1:30. I did, however, have to play a prank on them. I got out the trusty fart machine. I put it in the room and as they were in bed with the lights off, I pushed the remote from the front room and FFFFAAART!!! (Oh the simple things that crack me up). The girls were blaming each other, laughing and saying "Gross!" I waited a minute and pushed the button again, FEERT. (Just so you know, I am laughing as I am typing this because I am imagining this in my head!) This time, Lindsay realized that it was the fart machine and they all started looking for the thing as I am constantly pushing the button, pushing the button, pushing the button!! Oh, what fun!
The next morning they slept in until 8. We had pancakes for breakfast and then it was time for the party end. Lindsay had a wonderful time and we hope that everyone else did too.
