During our stay there, Jen was nice enough to take a family picture of us, since all we ever seem to do is get pictures of the kids :)
All in all, it was a nice trip, and I was very thankful to have friends and family around me, and VERY thankful that I didn't have to cook or clean :)

Also, Rudy and Gracie weighed/measured them selves: Rudy has grown 2 inches since June, and Gracie is 5'4" and weighs 120 pounds. The kids have all grown like tomatoes this year (my dentist once said kids grown like tomatoes - in the warmest months). I'm so happy seeing them look and feel so healthy!!

And of course, Yasmin had a perfect labor and delivery, and she was so gorgeous when I saw her in the hospital. I'm leaving her alone for a few weeks as she's inundated with family, but I know I'll have my time soon :)
After talking to Rudy for a while, it appears that he found a fire-ant nest. We had him Benadryled to the limit, plus oatmeal baths and ointments, and 3 days later, they all blistered. I took him to school the next day, and Angie informed me that he "HAS A RASH, and we're SURE it's contagious. He has to leave." Seriously, how ignorant can you be??? And this woman is in charge of my child's safety? Hell no! Due to divine providence, Ms. Haney opened her own day care last week, and Rudy has been blissfully running into her 'school' every day.

"Gracie's butt smells like ASSoline!!!"
None of us corrected him because we were all laughing so hard, and now we all use that phrase. I'm so proud.

At lunch yesterday, Rudy, out of the blue, says "Apple Hall is BAD". Naturally, my response was: "Wha??" He explained that when you drink apple-hall, your brains come out of your head.
I'm amazed at this child's grasp on reality.

Happy to say, there's not much new to report. Christmas was nice - Rudy got a HUGE amount of Lincoln Logs, and yet, his favorite toy is a last-minute purchase of a 3 dollar figurine of the Red Power Ranger. Gracie got, as she says, 6 thousand Pokemon cards. And Doni got some plastic toys to chew on (although he regularly chooses to chew on the Lincoln Logs).
For New Years Eve, we went to the downtown mall for First Night as usual - it was cold, but very nice, as the city did thier fireworks at 9pm this year. We saw the Swordsmen (2 guys who did a skit on how to be romantic men - while swordsplaying), and Brett Leake (a comedian). My favorite part from the comedian (there were lot) was, as he was discussing how we should all think about things a little deeper: "I was driving down the road one day, when a Salvation Army 18-wheeler semi truck passed me. And I thought........Hey, who gave them that? I want my belt back!" The guy was a trip! Also, had severe muscular dystrophy, and had to be physically moved from his wheel chair to the seat on the stage. He commented that as his M.D. was getting worse, and he was walking down the street, jerking and having to pause now and then, a child walked up to him and asked him why he was snapping in and out like that. His response?.......... "I'm a Transformer! Once I get around the corner I'll be a dunebuggy and I'll be OFF!" Cool guy. So, he mentioned that his mom took care of the family - his dad has MD, he has MD, and his brother has MD. Am I the only person who didn't know MD was hereditary?
