It has lately been taking 2 or 3 days for photos to arrive from my stupid Cingular phone (this one arrived two days after it was sent!) . Which is going to make it easier to bear the fact that stupid Blogger doesn't support photos being sent from Unicel, my new cell provider. Still, it's sad because that's why I signed up for the unlimited photo package!
Meanwhile, since we're between providers for a couple of days, there are 5 working cell phones in this house. Obscene, isn't it? Just think of the children somewhere in the world without even ONE cell phone! A mere three years ago I was vowing never to have one.
Now, I think I'm going to conference call myself from a few of my cell phones or something. Because I can. Also because I am too wound up to sleep.

Somehow we got a whim to go to the home show tonight (driving two hours to spend about 90 minutes there...), and this was probably Ethan's favorite exhibit. Dream on, kid.
I've missed a few days with the photos. Work, getting new cell phones, making plans, etc. March is going to be a crazy busy month.

Ethan and I kept busy this evening choosing photos and writing messages to send to his party friends. I know, we're a little late, but at least it is getting done. I found this cool site that lets you create a custom postcard and mail it online. The 4 x 6 postcards we're making are only 84 cents, which includes printing the photo and postage. I may never buy a card again.
Cliff's dad did the weaving. Pretty cool, huh?
P.S. Lateness of posts not exactly our fault...Monday's and Tuesday's messages didn't transmit.

Grandparents party last weekend, parents Thursday night, cousins this weekend, church today, friends tomorrow, grandparents next weekend...when will it all end?? Fortunately, he agreed to ask his friends to bring books to donate to Children's Home Society instead of presents. I highly recommend this! Last year, we had the kids bring cans for the food bank. We don't have as many toys to store in our not-that-big house, and taking in all the cans to be weighed was a blast.

He doesn't call it that any more, but when we told him he could go anywhere for birthday dinner, this was his choice. It was a great evening except for hitting a large bird (hawk? owl?) on the highway, which scared us to death and tore off a windshield wiper. We didn't even have time to slow down.
Happy birthday, Sweetie!

Sometimes Ethan finds Samantha's pop music a little puzzling. She has this funny song, he told us, with a guy who sings, I'm 264 my shirt, and I'm 264 my car, and I'm 264 your party.... "What's 264?" he wants to know. At least she mostly listens to old enough stuff that we can figure out the lyrics.

Here's a Jan. 31 make-up photo...
Child skates slowly up to Becky holding this pose. She takes his picture, assuming that is the idea.
"Do you know why I'm doing this? I wasn't just posing for a picture. I really am that good."
It's true. Jan. 31 was a bust.
