while we were busy...

while we were busy doing this...
 and this...
 they were across the yard doing this...
 that hardly seems fair.  especially when the temperatures are finely well into the 90's. 
but they did clean the playroom first.  and straighten up their rooms.  and sorta wash tony's car. 
 i am super excited that tony was working on the other two gates.  they look fantastic!
 not to mention how excited i am that i was able to take these tiles from their boring square to a rectangle just perfect for a brick-patterned back splash in the laundry room. 
and really i am relieved that they were able to kick back and cheer us on.  they had a rough little week, these little foopers did. 

maybe you aren't familiar with the term foop?  that is the kid version of the shart.  we spent the better part of the week dealing with foop, a little puke and a great deal of coughing.  both kids decided to explode out of their...well you know where it comes from.  interestingly enough, a foop smells far worse than either a poop or a fart.  especially at 12:30 am.  even worse at 3:30 the next morning.  oh, and worse yet when you are showering the other fooper and the foop just lets loose.  steamy foop might be the worse yet. 

too much?

these little belly bugs travel in families you know.  uggh. 

thankfully we are all on the mend now!

So sorry to hear you all had the foop! That is no good at all. Three days left to live it up and we never got to the MOST important day of all. Oh well, we WILL get to our day of "P's" I have no doubt. :)

BAHAHAHhHAHA!! I love it :) They were troopers this week! and I reallllyyy hope their belly bugs do not travel to family friends/sitter friends! I do not know if I could handle fooping during my first week of teaching! It was great fun getting to spend time withthe wee ones despite their struggles to feel a little bit healthy and chipper the last two days! I cannot wait to see what your brick pattern looks like as a finished product! How exciting! Have a great last week before school officially starts!
