halloween and other misc.

the biggest news: Jo's test results came back fine! we were really worried, as he is only 10 pounds heavier then our 2 year old, and the same height as our just turned 5 yr. old (he's 6 yrs, 7 months) We still have to go to a urologist next week and we are still waiting on a sonogram of his kidneys to be scheduled. We are def. breathing easier as a result of that news. We have been monitoring his fluid intake recently tho, and he is only drinking around 10 ounces total during the day, and that may be pushing it... I don't understand how he could be only taking that little fluid in.
The boys have finally settled on Halloween costumes. I found a picachu costume on ebay (love them!) and we re-thought the whole star wars thing. T will be ash catchum, Jo pickachu, M cubone and van will be treecko. my kids are obsessed with pokemon, and it will be fun (and something new) to scrapbook, so I am excited about this choice!
other then that, life goes on as boring as ever. I start an afternoon babysitting job tomorrow, a 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 from 12-6 every M,T,W,F. It will be long hours, but hopefully the boys (mine and hers) can get along and make this work. I am off to finish cleaning the house before van wakes up from nap. we have soccer practice this afternoon, then we will head to the tech soccer game for the elementary schools night w/ the hokies.
(they are giving away free hokie crocs to the first 100 people, and T is convinced he NEEDS a pair. why the school feels the need to announce this to kids is beyond me...) and with that...

  1. I am so thrilled to hear Jonas is okay! :)
    We are in the throws of Halloween preparations, too. Brian wants to be Young Link from Super Smash Brothers. I am not sure how I am going to pull that one off.
    Thank you for the wonderful letters and pictures of Sullivan! The boys LOVE them. Brian carried his around saying "AWWW the baby is so cute!" Evan said in a manly way..."I am putting mine in my wallet." Adam put his proudly in his Pokemon card pouch.(He has a little pencil pouch he keeps his cards in, Van is really special to him to have made the pouch :)
    We love and miss you all!
