"mom, it's a flood!"

So, the kids wanted a bubble bath. Nothing unusual there.

I had to start the dishwasher. If i can hear them, they're safe and out of trouble, right? I am a slow learner.

When I returned about 3 minutes later, the kids had soaked the floor and were out of the tub skating on the slippery tile.

"Mom, it's a flood! A bubble celebration!"

Where does she come up with her lines? Anyway, good times at the g house :)

ella's pretend b-day

ella woke up and said, "i want today to be my birthday." So we made a cake, sang a song, and bought her a load of presents. Okay, so we didn't do presents, but she got the special treatment all day.

You may not be able to see it but ella sculpted an E to put on
"grandma's" head. She also said that the figurine is wearing a baseball outfit.
Mom, don't feel bad that you look like a snowman. You should see her rendition of me preganant.

Dash Gillespie

Dash Gillespie

A little non-traditional but i've almost got kyle convinced.

What do you think?

The middle name is up for grabs.

He is still holding out for Grant Morgan Gillespie. Dug is holding out for Luke William Gillespie. I personally think dug just wants to use his starwar lines.

See if it grows on you.

kate the climber

Kate perfected the art of the escape in Utah.

My parent's new cat: FES (Foreign Exchange Student). He plays fetch like a puppy and the girls LOVE him.
