And yet, no picture of the boat.

Be thankful there are any pictures. I was knocked-out sick on Tuesday, and Rich got a hold of my camera. There was a knife involved. My camera made it through all right, but I decided I'd better change the batteries before he tried to replace them on his own again.

And then I told him that I thought I heard someone nosing around out by his boat and that distracted him for a few hours.

So, after I put the new batteries in the camera, I could take a look and see what pictures were snapped in the last few months. There were six. These five and an unflattering shot of Wilson.

First picture: Greeley smacking around a bunch of balloons with a broom stick. Mom said she's noticed that the pictures on my wall are always crooked. She's right.

Second picture: After we pulled down the crepe paper streamers from Atlee's surprise party, I wanted to share with all of you how I felt that Strawberry Shortcake and her gang had t.p.'d my living room.

Third picture: Atlee celebrated potato day at her school. That's what they called St. Patrick's Day. Each student had to bring in a potato and they measured and charted and did all manner of things scientific. We sent cupcakes for the green-taste testing portion of the day.

Fourth picture: Rich's fancy pants dinner prepared the night I was sick.

It did look pretty fancy pants.

Fifth picture: A new feature here at Gettysburg Family...

"What did Emerson destroy this week? "

This week was the crock pot. Although second place so far goes to him dumping a half a gallon of milk all over the dining room floor. Amateur mistake. I really and truly can't believe I actually left the milk down. Not like that matters. Since he can open doors. Any and all doors.


Hi, I'm Natalie. said...

The streamers are fantastic - lol =)

What a wonderfully creative idea to t.p. the living room. Was that done to clean up the spilled milk?

Oh God, he can open doors?! Have you considered duct taping mittens on his hands? That should slow him down.

What exactly was the fancy dinner? I couldn't see it.

In the broomstick picture, I was just waiting for it to connect with Em's face.

WOW! We've missed a lot. How could Wilson have an unflattering picture?

LOVE the "what the boy distroyed" pic. Why couldn't it be the boat instead of a the crock pot?? I guess there's still time for that.
