A girl and a Leapster

Olivia got a Leapster for Christmas and this has been a huge hit. Sophia loves it too and begs to play Olivia's. Olivia is not to keen on sharing it (which I really don't blame her) so Sophia resorted to playing it while Olivia was in school. This is how I found her Thursday....
I wanted to wait until Sophia's birthday to get her a Leapster of her own but she doesn't understand that concept so I gave in a bought her one yesterday -- especially since they have $10.00 price cut on them. Who knows what they would be in December!

It's official......

.......I give up! First we had the flood in the basement. Then today our dishwasher started leaking and tonight I get pulled over for "driving erratically" and I was literally less than 1 mile from our house and was about to turn on to our street. He said I was swerving and wanted to know if I'd had anything to drink. Of course that is a big negative as anyone that knows me knows I don't drink and if I did I would never, ever drink and drive. Period. Just wouldn't happen. I told him I was talking to the girls in the back but as I started thinking once I got home I was actually keeping an eye on him as he was right on my bumper and I thought he was going to run into me. Of course I never knew it was a cop behind me until he turned on his lights. Thankfully he just told me to be more careful and let me go. Now it is 11:30 pm and I just realized that we left the camera Olivia got for her birthday at the restaurant where we ate tonight. Normally that would have been in the car but she spent the night with some friends Monday and left it at their house so they returned the camera tonight. Hopefully the restaurant has the camera. Ugh.......

Flood update

Thanks for all your kind comments! They mean so much to us. As for the water, well it was gone about 2:00 that afternoon. Once the sump pump finally stopped my awesome father in law (yes he reads the blog but he is awesome so I'm not just saying that because he's reading ;-)) and brother in law came over to shop vac the rest of it out. Everything dried out quite nicely although it does smell musty in the basement. I'm sure it will smell like that for quite some time. My husband is so funny when it comes to cleaning up. He spent most of Saturday doing things with the basement stuff while I spent the entire weekend doing laundry. I had clothes stored in the basement for our yardsale this spring and a lot of it was water logged. I had to spin them before I could wash them. Now I think I am just going to donate them because most of it has been in 2 yardsales and hasn't sold yet. I did find a pair of Olivia's capris that I loved. They are 12 months. I tried them on the skinny little peanut and they fit her perfectly in the waist and are the perfect length for Bermuda shorts that have made a comeback this year. Thankfully our new exercise machine survived the flood and works great. Whew! We are expecting rain for the next several days but nothing like last week. Hopefully I can post a few pics tomorrow of my hubby's ummm how shall I say this.... drying of the stuff in the driveway...... It is quite original......

Water, water everywhere

To say we have water in our basement is an understatement! We had 6" of rain last night and our sump pump decided not to kick on and flooded our basement. Unfortunately when I called the insurance agent we found out that this is not covered on our policy and so most of the girls toys are lost as well as a few other things.

Well, I signed Olivia up to play t-ball this spring. She has had 3 practices so far and likes it. I was able to take some photos at Sunday's practice. She looks so cute out there! I love t-ball all the kids look so cute out there!
