Happy Birthday Aunt Helen!!!

Happy birhtday to my aunt Helen. Her birthday is tomorrow but I will not get up early enough to get this on my blog before having to go to work so I will put it up tonight. I have always loved aunt Helen so. I was always envious of her children...she understood fashion, brand name clothes, hairstyles where as my mom did not. As an adult I realize of how little importance that is but to my young eyes She was so cool!!! and still is....I remember anytime we went to silver dollar city or dog patch Helen is who took us(just not my mom and dad's cup of tea). She was so crafty christmas tree each year is covered with ornaments she year she sent me some to paint and instructed me on how to do it. I tried to paint my Santa exactly like the one she had painted for us. She made wonderful homemade suckers for each holiday and mailed them to all her neices and nephews. I always know exactly how old Helen is because she is 20 years older than me.....She is a jewel and I wish her a Happy day!!!I love you!

Sigie's new goose egg. She fell again and this time hit the right side of her head. Thank goodness no stitiches needed.

Astrid, Ingrid and Sigrid are working hard on anniversary cards for Uncle Greg and Auntie Erin. They will be married for one year on the 15th.

Thank God for Sisters

I knew Erin would rather have a picture of the girls posted than one of her but I still might get one of her up there yet. I just wanted everyone to know how lucky I am to have Erin for my little sis. Who else would spend 4 hours in a car and stay up 24 hours straight just to take care of her three nieces. And then wouldn't even take the money left for her. I started back to work Weds. and Eric and Gigi started to work Friday....Poppa was working the Bargains Galore on 64 (but he volunteered to keep all the girls anyway). For three days in August the child care center I work at closes and we do continuing education....well all of us who work there take our kids there so it puts us in just a little bit of a bind. But I have a little sis who always comes to my rescue. She says the girls were really good for her but I worry she is just saying that. I know Greg played Hide-n-seek with them and that is one of their favorite games. Erin said Sigie even tried to play. She would lay on the floor and count and then go hide. When Ingie counts instead of saying "Ready or not here I come".....she says "here I'm not here I am".....I love to watch the girls play this and occassionally get in on the fun myself. I hear someone calling "Momma Momma"....that is my cue to go.

Sigie's teething ring

The girls and I went to the pool on Wednesday. It sure was hot but they wanted to swim one last time before summer was over. Sigie and I tried to stay in the shade.....

summer is almost over

Here is Astrid and Ingrid at Rotary Ann, the rest stop, on the way home from Auntie Hey's. Sigie won't stay still long enough for me to get a picture of all three of them together.
