Busy Week

No time or energy to blog lately....we've been a tad busy with our new little guy. It takes some adjusting to having a toddler in the house again. :-)

Randy's office held a shower for us last Wednesday (photos to follow once I receive them from his office). His assistant arranged the whole shower while we were in China. She even filled out a new wish list (of her choosing) for us at WM! lol The theme was red/white/blue (like Max's room). Randy's co-workers were so kind to us...we received many nice toys and clothes for Max. We also received a much needed car seat for our 2nd car.

One of the ladies gave Max some of the punch which was made with sprite and orange sherbet. When I saw him drinking it, I quickly changed exchanged it with a sippy cup of water. Not sure why, but it just didn't seem like something he should be drinking.

We left the shower and went straight to piano practice. Just seconds prior to arriving at the piano teacher's home, Max began throwing up....ALL of the orange sherbet punch! What a way to break in a new car seat! I quickly parked the car, sent the girls inside, grabbed a slimy Max and sat him on the driveway, and began cleaning the car and car seat. What a mess! I used every diaper wipe I had, and even an extra couple of diapers to clean up the car seat (not to mention everything that leaked out onto the van seat. Max was FURIOUS because I had to strip him down to his diaper....he screamed all the way home (and even while I worked at home to continue cleaning the car). Once I had him clean and clothed again, he was in a better mood and we went back to pick up the sisters.
I was so worried that the car and his seat would remain smelly, but thanks to Febreeze, there are no lingering odors. :-)
These are fun times!!

No pics of the shower yet, but here are a few from this past week.

Cute pictures!!

There's always a bright side!! At least it was during daylight. And it was only orange sherbet (versus corn or something!!) At least you were not in the middle of Wal-Mart or a restaurant. And at least you had wipes handy!!! :-)

Enjoy toddlerhood again!! My littlest guy is already climbing to the top of the playset. Goodness, where does the time go?

He is sooo cute!!!

Bleck on the barf. Been there done that. Febreeze is wonderful stuff. The other thing to do is to get one of those smelly car deodarizers that hang. Get Vanilla! It works wonders!

It was precious getting to see your little guy in person! I feel as if I know you, and we've only met twice. One of these days, we'll have time to visit. When our kiddos are teen leaders at camp, maybe...

Have a wonderful summer enjoying your blessings!

Lois, how sweet that they hosted the shower for you! (& so sorry that the throw-up followed the shower - ewwww.) I sure got a kick out of Max when we saw you at Camp, and it was so nice to finally meet you! I also snuck peeks at your daughters; they just seem like wonderful girls.

We're still recuperating at our house ~ hope your week goes well!

or rather, should I say when "all" our children are old enough to be teen leaders at China camp? Wasn't one of your girls a teen leader this week?
