Well Grammy's house is sold! Ok, technically it isn't yet. They close on the house on March 6th! And Mr. Charlie's house just got two offers today! They will close on the one on Feb. 27th! Thank you God! (Now all we need is house for ourselves!)

Dora Undercover

I don't how familiar everyone is with Dora the Explorer, but Rose and Max love it so when we get movies from Blockbuster, we always end up with a Dora, (and something else for us older kids). This time my mom came back with, Dora Undercover. Dora has this alarm watch that buzzes every time Dora is near Swiper the Fox. The funny thing is Dora's alarm watch sounds exactly like our timer and so earlier this day we kept hearing this beeping sound and we started looking for the timer. It took us a long time to figure out that we were hearing Dora's little watch!

Not Fun

We have not had a very fun week since all nine of us have been hit by the stomach bug. Luckily it is a 24 hour thing so we are all slowly recovering. But for nine people to all get sick in a row in one week, is not fun. We all hope that by next Monday we can finally get back to school.
And my parents did put another offer on a house. This time we all think this is the house. Their Realitor is so sure that we are going to get it that she already took the house off the listings. The owners already signed the contract and now all we are waiting for is the bank to approve the offer. We will find out sometime in this upcoming week.

We love you all and really hope that none of you get sick!

Bye Bye Nemo!

This isn't very funny since it cost a lot to fix. But one of my younger siblings (younger then 8) accidentally sent a rubber Nemo exactly like the one in the picture, done the toilet. The plumber had to lift the whole toilet of the ground and fish Nemo out. I guess clogging the toilet with sticks and rubber fish runs in the family, because my mom clogged her toilet when she was little by dropping sticks down a pipe! After his poor adventure, Nemo was thrown away. But we still have the Nemo in the picture(There was two of them).

Cecilia's Birthday!

Holding Lauren

High School Musical theme and fun gifts

Max drew the picture he said it is Cecilia(Look above)

Time for cake!

We can't get enough of Lauren!

Happy Birthday 11 year old! January 7th was Cecilia's 11th birthday. We had a party with the family the night before and got more turns holding baby Lauren. She is really so sweet! Then on the seventh our good friends the McLain's came over for another party, (Can anyone guess what was her theme?) If you guessed High School Musical, you were right. She LOVES those movies! Cecilia has every song memorized of the first and second movies! I got the first movie for my birthday and Cecilia got High School Musical 2 for her birthday. Needless to say, she was thrilled! (I think she watched the first one more then me and she gave it to me!) She wanted a cookie cake so she double the recipe for Chocolate Chip cookies and bake it in a pane and ta-da! Cookie cake! (It was very tasty!)

Lauren Nicole!

On January 2nd 2009, Lauren Nicole Anthony, entered our world! She weighed 7lbs, 12oz and was about 19inch. long. My Aunt Jackie and our beautiful new cousin, Lauren, are both doing great! They came home last Sunday and for those of you who don't know this, they live on the road behind us so we see them quite often! I'm afraid I can't make the picture any bigger but from what you can see, isn't she gorgeous? We love you Lauren!!
