The goings on.

I don't know why I feel like I can't do a post without a picture! I haven't posted in awhile because my camera broke...which really stinks because it's not that old. Maybe I shouldn't have dropped it so much. So I need to get a new one before our trip to Greece in March. Any opinions on which brand is a really good one? I need a hardy one, seeing how I've been through 3 cameras in 3 years. I need help picking a good one. So it's weird to post without a picture and kind of boring but here's what's been happening in the Harris household....

1. Last night, Gage was really upset about something that happened at school. When he gets upset, he pukes. Last time he did it, a couple of weeks ago, he puked all over the floor in his room and I got really upset with him. I mean, he's eleven for heavens sake! Please walk 20 steps to the toilet! I cleaned it up but I was not happy. I told him that next time HE was cleaning it up. I'm a mean mom, I know. So I was gone last night and he barfed in his sisters room. He didn't want to get in trouble so he cleaned it up by himself. Not good. He poured Febreeze all over the vomit and then vacuumed it up!!! This morning, I go to vacuum the front room and it's not picking up right...which is odd because I have a really nice Dyson vacuum that works awesome. There is also this odd smell coming from the vacuum. So I look under and see all the dried barf all in the bottom of the vacuum!! Not a good way to start the day. Bless his heart. I love that kid but ...seriously!!!????

2. On top of that mess, Delly decided she wanted to eat a chocolate pudding in MY BED! I had just washed all the bedding..sheets, blankets, comforter, pillowcases...the works. I love getting into bed at night into freshly washed bedding. Well, she had pudding everywhere!! Even on the walls. So today I try to get the stains out. Kids are fun!

Happy New Year!!!

We all gathered at Mombee's again this year to bring in the new year. Eric made his famous homemade pizza for us to chow down on. It was dee-lish!!! We played games, then we played some more games, Andy and Annalee announced their engagement, we played more games....

then we ate some more, then we played some more. Before we knew it, it was time for the countdown to 2008! All the kids actually made it to midnight this year...except for Delly.

It was a great way to start 2008!!!!
