The Kitchen is a Mess!

Well, we're at it again. We've finally gotten to the last room in the house that needs updating.......THE KITCHEN! This is the most major adventure yet. New cabinets, adding cabinets, new floor, additional outlets/wiring for lighting. We have been told that the cabinets will be in on Thursday......cross the fingers!! Darrin spent the last part of Spring Break tearing out what was left of the kitchen.....the sink and cupboards. It looks and smells like an abandoned home. The attached pic is where the sink and cabinets used to be.
We have been staying in Cheney with 'Button' and 'Papa' Willey. It's so nice of them to let us stay but I know that having a 2 year old who's into EVERYTHING and a baby who has just started crawling can be a bit overwhelming.
Wade, Brenda, Paige, and Gage Porter came into town this weekend. We had a nice time going out to dinner and then the zoo with the kids. Paige is in the first grade and Gage is just a week younger than Tucker......So fun seeing them grow.

We're Crawling!

Yay! On Sunday evening (March 18) we came home from a weekend in Belleville, KS and Sawyer finally crawled! She turned 9 months on the 15th. We couldn't believe it. It was as if she'd been doing it for weeks. Scoot, scoot, scoot right across the carpet.
We went to Belleville this weekend to support Lauren (Darrin's niece) at the state Junior Miss pageant. Sawyer was not feeling well on Saturday while in the hotel. She and I stayed in the room and missed the pageant because she was just so miserable. We came home on Sunday and she was acting fine.........evidently -- she figured out mobility!
Yesterday was the worst day...diareah every 5 minutes! ARRRGGG! We went to the doctor and were informed that this was going around, sometimes lasting 7 to 10 days! WE HOPE NOT! Time will tell. Needless to say, Sawyer hasn't had a lot of crawl time since Sunday. When she gets to feeling better I'm sure I'll be chasing her all over.

Tucker'isms' to Remember

There are so many things that a parent wants to remember forever.......the first step, tooth, words......well, Tucker has been talking for quite a while now (he's 2 1/2) and like I said he is our constant source of entertainment, mostly through some of the crazy things he says. This entry is all the many Tucker'isms' we've been blessed to hear the last 2 1/2 years. I'm sure I have forgotton a few and will continually need to update.
Grandpa = "Papa"
Grandma = "Button"
Saxophone = "Sakonone"
What does Willie say? = "Meow"
What does Simon say? = "Ruff Ruff"
What does Mommy say? = "No Tucker!"
What does Papa/Daddy say? = "(snoring sound)"
An answer to a yes/no question = "Yep", "Nope"
Daddy working with big kids? = "Daddy wookin' wif big digs?"

We're up and blogging!

Hello All,
This is our first experience blogging so I hope this works. I'm not exactly computer literate but my good friend Jimmy started blogging with the pending arrival of his triplets. What a great tool to share with family and friends who live far away.....or even those right across the
The Ross's are all doing great! Sawyer is almost ready to crawl and Tucker is our non-stop source of entertainment. We got rid of cable when he was born in order to save some cash and we've never missed it. He makes us laugh everyday......of course, when we're not yelling at him to stop climbing the furniture, sitting on the dog, or bringing out every possible toy only to not want any of them.
Sawyer is the most laid back, peaceful, happy child I have ever met. We are so happy to have been blessed with such beautiful children.
I will write more later. I just wanted to see if this would work or not:-)
