It was 6 years ago on a Sunday morning that we welcomed Brendan into our family. About 5:30a.m. my water must have broke into a very small trickle. So I called the doctor, we had breakfast and then headed to the hospital. Brendan was born just before noon. What a joy he has brought to our family.

Today was a quiet day for the most part when it came to the boys, so I knew something would happen sooner or later. When Mike got home from work all the boys ran into the room to say "Hi" to him. Then they usually go back into the playroom, but not tonight....
Tonight, Brendan started crying. I didn't think to much of it (my boys will cry for a short while and then continue playing without needing me.), then Brendan started scream really loud, so I dropped my sewing(which I have plenty of) and found him with blood pouring out of his forehead. Okay, maybe it wasn't pouring, but it was dripping very quickly. So I yelled at Mike and had him take over. I'm not very logical in these situations, I always think it's alot worst than it is.
So to make the long story a bit shorter. Mike and I butterflyed the gash so we could have supper and then Mike took Brendan to Urgent Care. I talked with Mike about a hour ago, and he said that Brendan needed some stitches. They still aren't home, so I don't know how he did at Urgent Care. I will update with photo later.

So the color was going to be a suspense. Well a few days later, I got a phone call from Mike
Mike: You want to hear about my laugh of the day
Mike: I got my christmas present today
me: Oh you did, from who???
Mike: From you. I got my ipod. Guess what color it is???
Mike: hot pink
I busted out laughing. Of course the listing as an AS IS or refunds. So what do I do with a hot pink ipod when you have all boys!!!! I already have one.
That's when ebay comes back into the picture. I relisted it 4 days ago and I received an additional $40 on top of what I paid for it. That was easy money.

NOW the story gets interesting, this afternoon, Connor got ahold of that bar of soap and decided to take a big bite out of it!!!! At first Mike and I were shocked and just laughed at him, then he start spitting out bits and pieces of soap. Then he started blowing bubbles --- just kidding. Actually, Connor threw up on Mike.
I looked up Ivory soap online after Mike had asked me if ivory soap was made by Dove. (He thought I could title this blog "A new type of Dove Bar") I saw some amazing carving that were made out of bars of soap. Take a look for yourself: http://www.ivory.com/PureFun_IvoryProjects_AmazingSoapCarvings.htm
This being said I think I should start "The Stunt of the Week" with my boys. There is usually something that happens over the course the week that would be worth mentioning. So hopefully my boys will live up to this and I can keep you all entertained.

Okay I have to admit I like or should I say liked to watch the Price is Right. I am watching it right for the first time since Drew Carey took over hosting the show. IT'S NOT THE SAME. I would rather watch reruns with Bob Barker. The show is very "dry" with Carey as the host. What do the rest of you think????
I really need to change the channel back to Rachel Ray....except that Drew Carey is a guest on the show today.

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.
3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog for the rules.
Okay so my middle name is SUZANNE...here is goes.
"S" - Soccer Mom: i think it's just starting seeing how the first of my boys is playing. I think it will be lots of fun to go to the games and cheer on my boys. Who knows I could be doing this for the next 18 years. WOW!!!
"U" - Unique: per my husband, he says "You're one of a kind" Okay whatever....
"Z" - BuZy: yeah I know that this doesn't start with Z but I couldn't think of anything else. Do I need to say more? Like the rest of you with kids, life is just plain buzy.
"A" - Angry: It sometimes the way I feel when my boys are doing one of their many naughty acts. Then I need to remember that boys will be boys and I need to help them correct their behaviors
"N" - Naughty Nick: This is the nickname of one of my boys. You may know this already from previous blogs, but in case you don't, that how I refer to Austin. The rest of the kids also have nicknames: Brendan is Whiny Willie, Lucas is Sensitive Sally, and Connor is still growing into a nickname.
"N" - Needed: I don't think my family would manage without me. I don't think Mike would make it to too many functions without me reminding him when and where we need to be.
"E" - Effort: most of the time it takes more effort than I would like to make sure I do my devotions each day. I will admit there are many days that I run out of time. I need to make more of an effort.
Okay I think that's it. Now I don't know enough people that blog(who haven't already been tagged) for each of the letters in my middle name so here are the few I do know.
I tag: Mini Me, Confessions in Caledonia, The Church Lady.

Then I checked the freezer, that's were we keep our oreos and there was only one package left in there instead of two...I bought 3 total because they were on sale last week. That made me go investigate into the matter more. I found three boys either eating oreos, hiding oreos, or evidence of oreos on their mouths.
Of course when I asked who got the oreos out of thr freezer in the first place no one would fess up. Why do my kids have to make it so diffcult by using that "I don't know" phrase. Life would be so much easier for me, as a parent, if I didn't have to spend so much time figuring out who's fault it was. It would also be easier on them...I would only have to spank one kid instead of all three.
I never really got a straight answer, but through process of elimination I think it was Austin aka Naughty Nick.

My response was "I just hope he's making friends now, much less worrying about who will be his friends in high school."
Over the past few days, the Mike's question keeps going over and over in my mind. Are Brendan's friends going to be the same as they are now??? How are his friends going to affect Brendan as he goes up??? Those are just a couple of the questions that keeps coming back to me. But then I need to remember that it's out of my hands, I need to have faith that God will lead his life down the right path.

Hi, I'm Brendan and I wanted to tell you about a fishing trip I took with my dad in August.
One day, my daddy got me up really early when it was still dark outside. I got changed, we had breakfast and got into daddy's truck. After we got into daddy's truck, we drove and drove and drove and daddy's had to go into the store to get something in case it was going to rain - daddy's left me in the truck because I was kinda sleepy. Then we got there and parked. We found a guy who had a lifejacket for me. then we got on the boat, and we waited and talked until two more guys came, they didn't take any kids though. Next we drove for a little while and waited for fish. Daddy caught a fish before I did.
It was a long time before I caught a fish. Some guy held the fishing pole while I reeled the fish in. It was almost as tall as I am. There was a guy who had a camera and he took my picture.
While all the other guys were catching fishes and one eel, I ate some donuts. I don't remember how many donuts I ate - maybe 4 or 5.
When we were done fishing we had to wash and cut the skin off the fish. After that it was time to go. On the way home we stopped for lunch.
Below are some of the pictures from the fishing trip.

This past Thurday night, after soccer practice got rained out, we headed to school for Brendan to drop off his school supplies and meet his teacher, Mrs. Wells one more time before the start of school.
I can't believe that Brendan is already starting school. Yes, he is my oldest and my first to go to school so it will be strange not having him around....but the house will be much more peaceful...and I think there will be alot less fighting.
Good luck to the teacher and students as they begin a new school year. God bless you all!!!!

I planned two party within 3 days; Mike's surprise party and Connor's 1st birthday party, so that it didn't seem strange that I was cleaning the house, trying to get extra things done around the house, and buying party supplies.
I do need to thank my dad for getting Mike away from the home on Saturday afternoon. He first had an idea to go golfing, but up ended up have Mike help out building a landscaping wall at my brother Brian's house. So after a long afternoon of working, Mike came home to a house full of people. I don't think he was so happy because he went right back outside. I followed him out to see what was wrong and found out that he had a headache. But after a shower and a little aspirin, he was feeling better.
He didn't have any idea!!!!! Of course he said looking back on the past few weeks, there were a few give aways, liking Cory and Lindsay leaving a message on my cell phone and I didn't get the message right away. But all and all I think it was a great night and alots of fun with our friends.
A few of our friend(Brent&Kerri, Tom&Brenda, Eric&Jami) made up this big giant birthday card for Mike with candy bars. Here's what it read:
There is a guy named , who is a , and has a of life. His throw him a party. With old age comes on the eyes, , and forgetfullness. Because of your old age, you may hear of from your friends. Don't (cry baby), because we've gathered for your special day. You may think we are , but we love you to pieces.
Some photos for his birthday. (will upload more tomorrow)
