I'm back and i've got pictures

I took a little break from my continuous posting because we actually had no functioning computers in the house for a few days. No, I'm not lying, my house actually had no computer, 27 computer programming books, but no computer. So much for NaBloPoMo; the desktop is terminally ill, and the laptop charger got left in Vicksburg for a few days (long story). We had the charger back Sunday night, no excuse, and yesterday, I acquired corneal abrasion #5 courtesy of Eli (I was just holding him in my lap, and he flung his little arm around, which scraped a fingernail across my eyeball). I know, you are thinking, how in the world is that possible that in the period of 2 1/2 yrs. a person could have 5 corneal abrasions. Well, Jamie's theory is that I have something wrong with my blinking reflex, maybe so. Whatever it is, I'm tired of it. Imagine having a burning paper cut on your eye, and of course your eyes blink all of the time irritating and restarting the burning each time. Sorry, I had to get that off of my chest, I have been bottling up my anger toward my eye ball and had to get it out. My eye is feeling better now, still blurred, but not stinging and watering like crazy.

I promised some pictures a while back, so here are a few.

This was Eli's first time down the slide the other day.
Eli's first time on the clown car; its missing all of it's face pieces, the clown car that is : ( He was really concentratingEli is always happy when he is outside. When I open the door to let Rickey out, and he doesn't get to go outside he gets pretty angry.

Car seats are a cool fun toy when they are not in the car.Friday, after Joel got off of work, we sped to Lake Charles to the Barbe High football game. We had been planning to go to a game all season to see Mavanie march, but hadn't made to one yet. We made just in time to see her march. It was fun despite the bitterly cold wind.Kailey had a good time painting at Memaw and Granddad's house.
At the mall in Lake CharlesSunday evening Jamie, the babies, and I went out to Baker to hang out with Becca (college roommate) who was in town for Thanksgiving. It was great to hang out with her and her family, and meet her super cute baby girl Marianna! This is the only picture that I got that had all 5 babies in it. It was so good to see Becca after almost 4 years!

And no, my camera is not from 1995 with floppy disk memory and half a mega pixel. These are from my phone so the quality is horrible. It is just so much easier to take pictures with my phone rather than toting around our big camera that take beautiful pictures.


  1. Are you frickin' kidding me? This is your 5th corneal abrasion?! That's crazy painful! Your poor eyes. I think you should wear big scuba goggles to protect your vision. Then you can have scuba vision and all of the girls will want to do it too. You could be the new fashion icon of the decade! Imagine the posibilities! ;-)

    Really though, I hope your eye gets better and stays in tact from here on out. Ouch!

  2. Aw, hope your eyeball gets better soon. Tell Eli to quit beating you up, your going to have to start standing up for yourself. Haha!

  3. I thought about the goggles on the 3rd cut :) Joel offered to pick me up some no prescription contacts on the way home from work. I didn't do the contacts, but I'm having second thoughts.

  4. You seriously made me cringe thinking about a papercut on my eye! Ow!
    The pictures are so cute even the ones from your phone. I love how serious Eli is on the clown car. So cute!

  5. goggles might be good! Good painting kailey! Joel looks buff in the picture. Wish I could have been there to see you all and Becca.
