Be the change you want to see in the world...

Synopsis of Us

Lisa is au natural. She likes to have babies at home and drink slimy green liquids with large amounts of earth in them. She loves the quacks and we love her. If you are ailing, just call Lisa. She will doctor you up!

Melanie is a little bundle of energy. She's very peppy and always bouncing around. Do not drive with her. She tends to talk and visit and not watch the road. Cuts a mean hair-do!

Sarah is crazy! She loves Diet Pepsi (too much). The group photographer with many free photo shoots for her friends. Many questionable eating habits that we all ignore, hopefully they don't kill her.

Emily is an overachiever. She never sleeps and wakes up way too early so she can pratice music with her kids. She loves the earthy green drink too. Be careful, she will try to poison you with sugar-free goodies.

Jen is a dental hygienist. If you want to know which kind of gum to chew (to xylitol or not to xylitol, this is the question) she'll know.

Lana is full of crap! Literally, her house is full of crap! Yes, just stuff. If you ever need any random thing, pretty sure it's in her house... somewhere. Very competitive, don't coach children's athletics with her.

Adria is straightforward. She pretty much says it like it is. She is our community sex-ed advisor. Any questions, just ask her, she knows it all.

Marianne (one of the tall, leggy blonds) is amazing! She graduated from college while taking care of her four children and working to save the entire Chinese orphan population.

Marilyn is a perfectionist. She has to have everything at a ninety degree angle, if not, she's nervous. Hopefully this doesn't kill her. Likes to scrapbook, spends a large sum of money on this activity.

Stephanie (another tall, leggy blond) really likes to work out. Too much of a good thing is not a good thing. Nursing is her profession (not wet nursing).

Entertainment at the Park

We had a lot of fun at the park tonight, free entertainment, free ice cream, and lots of fun bouncy things to play on. The dinner was only $3.oo, it was a nice relaxing evening with friends! There were plenty of things for the kids to do so we actually got to sit and have some adult conversations - rarely happens these days. Brek was handing out money, so even Jack got in on that action. By the way Brek I need some!

We have a bunch of cute kids - Ben loved the cotton candy

Some of our kids waiting in line for the bungee run... They were so happy to play together you would have thought that they didn't just spend half the summer together out at the fields...
I told Em. I had better take a picture of this because no one would ever believe me that she actually ate sugar!!

Girls Night Out

Anyone wanting a girls night out for a chick flick? Tommorow night (tuesday) 7 p.m. at the theatre. Write something if you are coming so we can meet outside, or save ? seats.

I am leaving for China in 3 hours

OK gals, I am officially out of here! I am packed and repacked and didn't sleep a wink last night. I am having a nervous breakdown though. I am really having a mommy melt down about leaving Mia and Ashton. It is hard to be on the opposite side of the world as you kids. Something about being SO far away is just hard. SO I am asking a huge favor! Please , I know it may take lots of courage on your part to invite them to play for a couple hours (they are after all "diablo and diabla"), but if you have a morning where you don't have much going, could they maybe come over to your house to be hugged and kissed by one of the extraordinary housewives? You are all Mommies and are like sisters to me, so it would give me comfort knowing you are loving on them for me while I am away. Ok , I am off now to call Dr. Graham for some Zanax! Alicia's cell is... well maybe I shouldn't put it on the blog but just call my house or Lisa for Alicia's #. Thank you so much. OK..... I need medication!! I'M CALLING BREK

LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
