So, despite not making the short list, we still had a good time. He played. He ate. He napped. He ran away from Cael. He got clobbered by an overly-friendly George.
You get no photo due to SD card issues. Picture is there. Can't get it onto the computer. Figures. That's just kind of how this week has gone... Maybe tomorrow will be my day?!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Thanks in advance! (The bluebirds thank you too!)
We went to spend the day just south of town where Grandma Margaret & Grandpa Scott have some land. They have a good chunk of land with a camper and a shed to take shelter in for the time being. We needed the shelter this weekend. It was cold and windy!!!! Didn't bother the kiddos one bit. They played in the camper, out of the camper, took a walk, played in the shed, planted seedlings with Grandpa Scott...
I don't know what they were planting here but they sure were happy about it!
And just to add to our fun day out, Jason discovered a new hunting ground for choke cherries. But, shhhhhhh... He's not telling!

Well, at this appointment he gets to pee in a cup (fun). He also gets a finger stick (interesting). When the hematocrit is too low, he gets another finger stick (slightly less interesting). Then he gets 5 (yes, five) immunizations (not at all interesting- rather upsetting, truth be told). Cael then gets his five (really). When Brennen's hemoglobin comes back too low as well, we get to go to the lab. Brennen gets his blood drawn. He's completely unimpressed by this point to put it mildly, despite the promise of a blizzard from Dairy Queen.
He was such a good boy and was a brave as he could be. A cotton-candy blizzard in hand soothed the day's trauma. Two bites later, he was overcome by a nap and his siblings happily finished his treat on the drive home.
(The lab results were fine. He's just got to eat more spinach... Yeah, right!)
See the three dots on his side (down from the little boy armpit)? Those are the owies that worry me. How does a four year old get three puncture wounds there without coming to me for consoling? He can't even tell me where they came from...
There's the tongue (inherited from his daddy's family). Whenever he's happy or concentrating or drinking or, really, anytime, it's hanging out.
Another cupcake (leftover from the birthday). What a mess!
He loves grilled cheese. (Thanks for reminding me, Michelle!)
I don't think of myself as a "teddy-bear" person, but these little bears make me laugh! They remind me of Cael & Bret- little buddies!
Looks a lot like a light sunburn all over with no bumps. His skin looks a little mottled, like a newborn whose body can't seem to regulate temperature quite yet. He's his usual happy self despite cutting 2 teeth.
So, what do YOU think it is?
