Babies don't sleep on vacation either!

So, here I am at 1:34 a.m., not able to sleep on a couch.

No, Cindy and I didn't have a fight. We are on vacation and have a house at the coast. Violet and Lilly are sharing a room, Cindy and I have a room and Jen has a room upstairs.

For some reason Lilly won't stop crying. I think she is hungry, but she had a bunch of milk and continues to cry. So instead of leaving her in with Violet, so we have two exhausted kids today, I told Cindy to take Lilly to our room and I would find a place to crash.

So far, the couch isn't working. I figure if I stay up and get tired enough, it will work. :)

Now, mind you this isn't complaining. Nope, I mean if this is going to happen, when better than on a night where I don't have to be back to work for another six days? Perfect if you ask me. I am actually enjoying the little silence I get between muffled cries.

Oh, and Cindy got a nap today. So while she is probably tired, it isn't like she is operating on four hours of sleep. All in all, things aren't bad.

But I am up at this hour updating the blog, because it's quiet. :)

Now I think I will read. I bought two books today at the outlet mall.

I will post pictures and videos during the week, and do some updates.

Happy Easter

Cindy has informed me that I have to update this blog more often. I have been updating my Facebook pace like a fiend -- I can do it from my phone, which is very nice -- but I have been neglecting this. I may see if I can find a tool that will allow me to update this with my iPhone too.

Anyway, Cindy remains defiant that she will not get on Facebook. I think she has a page, but will not check or update it. Way to be with the times, Ms. Computer Nerd!

Today we went to church and had a nice meal out at the Marsh's. Larry is talking about expanding his real estate empire again, either by buying a house in California (again) or some other property in the Colton area. I am trying to sell him my house, so let's see how that goes.

I'm not holding my breath.

Here is a picture of the girls this morning before church. These were the dresses they wore for Carrie's wedding, and I think this is the last time Violet will get into the dress -- it was a pretty tight fit.

Things are stressful at work, but I keep reminding myself it's a part-time job. :)

I will try to update this more often when we are on vacation with photos (we are going to the coast later this week!).

Hope you had a good Easter. He is risen!

1 a.m. Update: Really trying to catch up on laundry. We straightened the garage between 10:30 and 11:30 p.m. (the girls were sleeping), and there was one last load of laundry to do. I opted to stay up and do it. Anyway, this evening I took this video of Violet reading and thought you might like it.

Palm Sunday Concert

video

Today is Palm Sunday. So Violet and her Sunday School pals did a concert in church this morning. I took a video from too far away, sorry.

Anyway, enjoy.
