the nienie porter

Today I am posting at my sister's blog while she posts on our brother's blog while he posts here, on my blog.
Extraordinary!

Last week
Lisa was in the hospital for two days after the birth of our baby girl, Margaret. That left me at home, taking care of the other four kids. Whew! What a job!

Saturday was the big day that Lisa and Margaret got to come home. We had to get the house ready for them!

We decided that we would have a home-made Saturday.


As in, I made my children clean my home.


Hugh was so cute while the kids worked. Couldn't you just eat that face?


Because she's a girl, I let Phoebe do her own make-up. She did a nice job. I know this sounds strict, but in our house girls can only wear make-up once they start going to pre-school. Call me old fashioned!


Once the house was clean, it was time for dinner. I made my signature meal: Top Ramen! It was so delicious.


The kids worked hard, so I decided to reward them with a little TV time.


We love educational programs!


While the kids watched the show, I snuck upstairs for a little dad-time. Here I am, soaking in the new jet-tub that I installed myself.


Dear Ms. Valentine Clark,

I thought about you all day, in your sexy maternity bra. I can't wait for you to be mine. All mine. Too bad we have to wait six weeks. (Doctor's orders!)

Anyway, I'm not the only one excited for you to come home...
