He went to Urgent Care and got it stitched up. He said it was pretty deep, Could open the flaps and move his whole leg around seeing all his tendons and muscle. Thank goodness the brick didn't cut through those or he'd be in the OR.
Fam--remember Trevor's gash?? Travis had to call Trev and he told him he thought about Trev the whole time!
Girlies chillin on the couch. So we thought this was a solid plan-kids upstairs, they have their blankets and pillows, bowl of popcorn and water cups--they are set! But they kept coming down stairs needing something or other, so I have no idea if the movie we watched was good or not. But hey, eating popcorn in your PJ's and relaxing with friends is always a great night in my opinion!
Walking back to the car, there were some train tracks that were closed down. I wish that big old building wasn't behind them because the picture is soooo cute!

It's taken me 3 hrs to post this--and no my day hasn't gotten any better, but I'm sure glad I took these pictures to remind me how much I love these little kids--and that they truly are worth it.
This one is my ultimate favorite. Nothing bad about the entire house, only negative is that it's on a busy street in Summergrove. BUT it does have a fenced back yard...and a million parks around the neighborhood to ride bikes at. Gorgeous inside! I love it!!! This is my 2nd fav. The only bummer is we'd have to replace the carpet and pain the huge enormous walls from a dreary gray...but other than that, I love the location the best!
This is my 3rd. Not a fabulous neighborhood, but has 3 stories and a fabulous middle deck with a great backyard! Great hardwood floors on the main--move in ready.

Kaylin and Ethan spent Saturday with Aunt Jo Jo. When I came to pick them up they were watching Bambi. Aunt Joanna told me this:
Background--Bambi's mom gave him the last leaf on a tree
Kaylin: What did she give him?
Aunt Jo Jo: A leaf, you know they eat green things
Kaylin: But not all green things-- like crayons, they would choke!
We have those Vitamin C Halls in the car that are different flavors. The kids love them.
Ethan: Mom, can I swallow these?
Mom: No, honey, I don't want you to choke.
Ethan: (famous line) Why?
Mom: Well when you choke, you can't breathe and we'd have to take you the hospital and I really don't want you to die...(yeah you may think that's extreme, but you have to take extreme measures to get this kid to listen)
Ethan thought about this for a while....he responds:
Yeah, I don't want to die mom, then I'd go to heaven with Danen and Jesus way up in the sky! I won't swallow this.
Check!! Lesson learned! :)
We are eating popcorn one night...
Ethan, pointing to his tooth: Mom somethings wrong way back here.
Mom: Did you get a popcorn seed stuck in your teeth?
Ethan: No, it's a shell. Sea shells are sharp!
So yeah, the house is quiet-which is so nice because I have a screaming headache, Aidrian is cuter than ever, rolling around, talking...so I'm like, Oooh let's get the camera! As soon as I hit record--all heck breaks loose.
If you already have a headache, I advise you to turn your volume off. This video is funny to me now, only because I don't currently have a headache and I wanted to show a glimpse of what Sunday afternoons are like in the Clarke house. Ethan has no pants and wants to wrestle, Kaylin is growling at her dad, trying to be scarier than him, and Aidrian is trying to enjoy time with mom! ;)

Little Missy is now 4 months old! She is darling, babbles, coos, laughs, giggles, blows bubbles and jams her fists in her mouth constantly.
Still loves her tummy time, but finds it difficult when Ethan's always in her face (see the red shirt tothe right-yeah that's him!) But I caught a pic with out him slamming her down, thought it was too cute not to post. I think she looks like the Who girl in the Grinch. Love that "deer in the headlight" look, all my kids have it as babes. Love it. Today was actually a little chilly. We went to the park so I decked her out in a warm jumpsuit. So cute.

You may have dreams that your husband is in jail and you do something bad to land in the same prison (although- a nice prison with couches and a "lounge feel") to have him be let out on parole and you have to flirt with fat slimey guards to let you escape!

We have been memorizing the Articles of Faith at bedtime. Kaylin knows 1 and 2. Ethan is working on #2. We had to record this because this is how he says #2...
I apologize for those of you who aren't mormon, you won't know what I'm talking about, but it's still cute!

Is your bed not comfy or big enough? Just roll over and find a cozy spot on the floor next to it! (Bring your own blanket)
I showed Ethan these pics and he said, "Oh, why did I sleep there? That's silly mommy."
I like this picture best with out the flash, cuz it just goes to show how incredibly dark it is in there. No windows, lighted only by candlelight.
We had a little birthday bash before we went to the resturant. Yummy cupcakes! (with blowing helpers!--they decorated them too)
Happy Birthday AJ! So glad we could spend it with you!! We love you!!!

3 months Photo Session--
So my mom asked for a recent pic of Aidrian...I thought, I just did her photos!! Oh--3 months ago...I guess I'm quite the slacker for being a photographer! I got some great ones of her cute little face, so I thought I'd post my favorites! This one is definately #1~

Her 2nd injury was falling off the bed! I've never seen her roll yet...I put her on the bed by the huge laundry pile I was sorting, went into the laundry room to get another load and BOOM! She had rolled off the bed! I think she landed the best way possible though, a little ball on her back. She cried pretty hard but then fell fast asleep. What a sweetie.
Happy Girl--she loves to smile and has found a real true giggle. She's one noisy little thing, but of course only when it's quiet...
