Those were Caroline's words as we got out of the car
at 5:30 this morning. Ethan I just smiled sadly.
We knew what was coming even if she didn't.
Tonsillectomy patients don't feel as well after
the surgery as they do before. Here she is in the
hospital "room" with her gown on - and a big smile.

Well, it is time to catch up. I haven't posted a blog for a while. While staying at my mom's house, we wanted to have a little fun. We had a lot of fun. Maybe it wasn't the safest activity I've provided for my girls, but it was a blast. It turns out that a inflatable pool with a sprinkler on a trampoline will entertain four girls indefinitely.

This post is not for the weak of stomach. I had the girls in the bathtub this morning and Ethan was in the bathroom with them while I was in the kitchen. Suddenly heard Caroline squealing, "Ewww! Ewww! Ewww!" Then I heard Ethan asking, "What is it Caroline? Did Holly poop?" I don't know if he really expected that or was just joking, but she had. And what did he do? He called for me and scooted off to work. I discovered a bathtub full of two little girls, about eight or nine bath toys, and more than twenty little cocoa puff poop balls and one big turd. I have to say, it was one of the few times Caroline has willingly gotten out of the bathtub. The other times were other poop in the tub incidents. Yes, this has happened twice before. So as I scooped out the poop with a soup ladle (it will be replaced) and pondered the best way to sanitize the tub and bath toys, I thought, "Thanks Holly, for this wonderful gift at 7:30 in the morning." At least the day can only get better, right?
I'm so tired of poop!

Our life is hectic, but we found time to go out for an afternoon of fun to celebrate Caroline's fourth birthday. We went to lunch at "Ol' McDonald's," and after the girls ate their nuggets, they got to go explore the play area. It was fairly crowded that day, so we had a nice audience when Caroline decided to yell from the 15 feet above us, "Does Ol' McDonald's have a bathroom? 'Cause I need to go poop!" Then everyone got to watch Ethan and I coaching Caroline on how to get out of the tunnel maze without going down the slide that hurt her tummy. Holly added to the entertainment too. Every time she saw Ronald McDonald, Holly would say "Jesus!" The only thing we could figure out was that he had his hands held out in a similar pose to Jesus in one familiar painting. Bowling was fun, but at once slow and chaotic. The video will give you an idea of why. Fun times! On an interesting note, Ethan and I bowled on our first date! It was fun to go nine years later (almost exactly) with our two little girls!
Holly provided our cheering section and made sure that neither Ethan nor I scored above an 85. Normally Ethan beats the pants off me, but he only beat me by one this time. Check out Caroline in her snazzy bowling shoes!
