Gun Wars

Gun Wars

Daddy and Seth having a blast with Seth's Nerf guns!

Did I mention this took place during a math lesson today? Yep.....gun fights during math! I lovingly asked Greg how math would be incorporated into this gun war. He said that Seth was very rambunctious today and needed to exert his extra energy. "Ohhhhh, I seeeeee!"

It's hard to tell which one of them was having more fun, but, I have to say that Seth DID do a much better job of finishing up his math once he "exerted his extra energy"!

He Is Risen

We hope you all had a wonderful Resurrection Day. The Lord is risen indeed!

Thought I'd post an updated photo of the family, minus myself! I wasn't feeling well, so didn't dress for Easter. I'm bummed about the lack of quality in this photo, but at least it's a recent one! More to come......

From the Sabo family to yours.........have a wonderful day!

Balancing Act

Balancing ActWell, Daddy's up to his old tricks again. Once our babies reach about two months of age, Greg puts them to the test. He's done this with all of the children, and now, Genevieve has proven herself to be yet another silly Sabo! When Seth was a baby, he and Greg scored a few seconds of fame doing this very trick when one of our video clips landed on America's Funniest Home Videos.

And just for the record, no, he's never dropped a baby.........yet! ;-)

Boys Will Be Boys

Snacks Anyone?
*dog food
*toilet water (a la pee)
*deoderant (spring fresh, of course)
*blue marker (only non-washable will do)

These are the contents that have been consumed by Ethan in the last two days! After eating dog food and quenching his thirst from the toilet, we're convinced he should have been born a puppy..........he's as cute as one, anyway! Lord, help us...........

The First Time

Isn't it a funny thing when your baby sleeps through the night for the first time? On one hand, you're excited that the baby has finally slept through the night, but on the other hand, you're wondering all night why she hasn't awakened yet!

After many unpredictable nights with Genevieve, she finally slept through the night last night.

Me on the other hand....

I woke up at 2am, peeked at her, still asleep.

Woke up at 4am, peeked at her, still asleep but should be waking up at any moment.

Woke up at 5am....okay, time to feel her to make sure she's still breathing. Whew....still breathing.

Finally, at 6am I hear that sweet little cry that I had been waiting for since 2am.

Even after seven babies, that first "sleep through the night" still gets me! We'll see how she does tonight.  And how I do!

Genevieve is eight weeks old today! Wasn't she just born last Monday???

Thoughts, Observations, and Other Musings

Chloe (3) has this cute little purple, fuzzy purse that she carries around ALL DAY! She loves this purse. This purse was a stocking stuffer for Christmas. It's the ONLY present she still plays with everyday. I bought it at the Dollar Store........

A few months ago, while driving in the car, Seth (6) was telling us about his tooth. He asked me if I rememered when it used to be gray. I said yes! He then said that "God raised it from the dead..........."

All of our kids LOVE yogurt. We used to buy family packs of Yoplait yogurt until we made the switch to all natural yogurt. Well, yesterday I decided to buy Yoplait again because it was on sale AND I had a coupon. When Chloe (3) saw the yogurt in the fridge, she very excitedly said, "Yea, the upside down yogurt!"

Ethan's favorite phrase these days is "naughty boy". you think he's heard that once or twice in his life? He also favors the word "NO"...............

A couple of weeks ago, Seth (6) and Sophia (5) (partners in crime) were running through the kitchen. We have a NO RUNNING IN THE KITCHEN POLICY here! When I caught them, I rhetorically yelled, "How many times have I told you NOT to run in the kitchen? After a few seconds pause, Seth, with a calculating look on his face answered, "Nine?" The girls and I burst into laughter. So much for that lesson in discipline.........

We're so proud of Cheyenne.........she's been able to come up with a new word for the dictionary! While helping her with implied pronoun references in English, she invented the word "fraidiness" as a substitue for the word "afraid". We're so proud..........

(Disclaimer: She's really a VERY bright young lady.......we claim that she's suffering from cabin fever since we've been sick for so least we got a good laugh out of it!)

I just called Greg at work a bit ago and woke him up from his nap. Yes, you read me right......a work! Oh, the life of a firefighter.............

Celeste (12) makes the BEST pancakes. She infuses the batter with vanilla and a mashed banana. Then she makes a homemade strawberry puree to top the fresh whipped cream! YUM!

The other day we were all enjoying a handful of Cheez-its for our snack. After Seth (6) finished his, he walked back into the kitchen and said, "Mommy, we can't buy Cheez-its anymore!" When I asked him why, he replied, "Because Cheez-its aren't healthy!" Hey, WHO told Seth that Cheez-its aren't healthy.........

Baby Genevieve is almost eight weeks old. Just eight weeks! Both of my older girls are ALREADY ready for us to have another baby!!! And people say we're crazy..........

And, as I'm finishing up this post, Ethan (1) comes downstairs in underwear! Not his diaper, underwear! There they go again.........those little ones are trying to potty train him AGAIN! Sorry, Mommy's not ready yet for that! I'd better go get that diaper back on before he........well, you know where that's going........
