It's been a little busy around here!

Thursday, March 18th

Matt called at 6 a.m. and asked if I could come get Drew ready for school because Ashley was going into labor. Yahoo!! finally a baby is going to come. {no labor pictures of Ashley}

Drew was off to school. I came back home to do some work for the company. Back to Matt's house to meet Drew's bus at noon. Just as I'm explaining to Drew and Charlie how they're coming to Grandma's and I'll get them McDonalds for lunch and the Princess Frog movie and Drew can play video games all he wants at grandmas....Jenn calls. Her doctor is putting her in the hospital, but Jordan's at work, could I take her?

I kind of paniced for a few moments then I remembered Ron's Mom. So off to get the original Grandma Marx to see if she could help me with Drew and Charlie for a little bit. We drove through Mc Donalds and picked up grandma great, and headed to jenn's house. Video games would be at Jenn's house instead of Grandmas. Jenn gets settled into the hospital.

Finally I leave the hospital, pick up Drew and Charlie and get Grandma Marx back home so she can attend to a humanitarian night.

Drew and Charlie enjoying popcorn and the Princess and the Frog movie. Pizza has been ordered.

At 8 p.m. I start waterproofing Scott's bed with plastic since I have the kids and no night-time supplies. They can wear some old t-shirts for bed time.

Just as the bed is ready we get word that their new brother is born and they can come meet him.

Drew and Charlie meet Parker at 10 p.m. They think he's pretty cute.

Charlie unwrapped the blanket to check out his toes.
After meeting Parker, Drew and Charlie realize just what a busy day they had had with all the things their mom doesn't usually allow: video games, pizza, capri suns, fruit roll ups, ice cream cones, they were exausted and fell asleep in their own beds a few moments after this picture.

I arrive back at the hospital just after midnight. It's now March 19th.

Jenn's been put on oxygen.

At last, there's a new grandson....again.

Cute new family
