I'm sure you're happy to hear that we're still sick. And yes, as long as we're sick YOU'RE going to have to hear about it. I figure if I'm miserable I might as well make everyone aware of it...

But despite being sick we managed to have a pretty fun weekend. Chase didn't work on Saturday which was glorious! We started off the morning with haircuts for the boys (including Miles). Chase sat each of them in his lap and buzzed 'em before turning the razor on himself. It was traumatic for Cameron (isn't everything?) but Miles was mostly curious. I think they all turned out so cute!

After the haircuts was the obligatory trip to Costco at lunch time. Sure Costco is crazy on Saturdays but it's worth it to get filled up on all of the yummy samples. Plus we really needed 12 cans of chicken broth, 48 nutrigrain bars, 184 diapers, 40 capri sun drinks, 10 scallops, 3 lbs. of chips, 9 mangos and 2 gallons of milk.

We capped off the day with a trip to play putt-putt. Now, you may think that being in Dallas it was a nice balmy evening of golf, but I assure you this was not the case! It was SO COLD! What were we thinking?! But it did end up being fun! Cameron miraculously got a hole-in-one almost everytime. I'll let you figure out how THAT happened...

Lastly, Alyssa reminded me that I haven't posted any pictures of the outside of our house. Here they are! We love our house. Yes, it does have a very '70's look to it, but I really like it. Plus, we somehow ended up with the greenest grass in all of Texas. Seriously, look at it! It's practically glowing, while our neighbors all have brown grass. I suspect that this has something to do with the fact that our house has the storm drain behind it, which means that we are the lowest lying point in our neighborhood. So basically everyone else is paying to water their grass and the water ends up in our lawn. Sweet.

Enjoy, and happy Sunday night. I'm not even talking about the Superbowl...Poor Bears...

Sorry about da Bears. More sorry about all the people that paid mucho dinero for tickets only to sit in the rain (including my aunt, unlce and cousins)! But they are die hard Colts fans, so at least they got the win. Anyway, cute house, reminds me of the Brady Bunch and cute boys. Owen won't be needing a haircut until he's at least 2.
