Yesterday was mayhem around here. After a very busy day Ward rushed home so the two of us could go to a meeting at 5:30 (He's never home at 5:30!). We dropped our kids off at my friend Charlotte's house, but we had to be back by 7:00 so Charlotte and I could go visiting some ladies in our neighborhood. Ward agreed to watch SIX LITTLE GIRLS while we went visiting. I was a little nervous, but when we got home at about 8:50, my house was immaculate. I am not exaggerating. The kitchen was spotless, the bedrooms all clean, the laundry was finished, even the fish had a new spit shined bowl. There were six little girls running around in nightgowns--not one of them upset in any way--except that we were home and they had to separate for the night (they really play well together), but Ward was no where to be found. I searched the house and finally found him in the basement on the phone with a patient who was in pain. After the kids were in bed he carried two filing cabinets to the basement and I wondered where he was hiding his cape. I am seriously the luckiest woman in the world.


McCady and her friend M got on the bus together the other day. I asked them to jump so I could practice some action shots. I was laughing so hard I could hardly stand it. McCady just jumped like a maniac. I had to include this.

MaLeah thinks she is so big. She gave Ward and me a timeout today because we were speaking excitedly about something that happened at work.

The other day Maiya made a huge mess. I stripped her down and put her in the tub. I turned the water on. First it was too cold, then it was too hot. Then she yelled, "It's not ticklish! It's not ticklish!"

Ward is pretty amazing-- of course he'd have to be to get you!

I love those pink nails-- and McCady might be a future basketball star with hops like that. They are all such beautiful girls (like their Mama) and the pictures are vibrant and fun like they are.

You have such an adorable family. I am very impressed with the amount of work load Ward and you can do in short periods of time. I was finally able to download the pictures of the Call family that you scanned for us. I can't believe you scanned all of those pictures. Thanks so much we had fun looking through them. I have to say we didn't look at all of them, However we enjoyed the ones we did look at. We are eternally grateful. You both are amazing and the girls are so dang cute.
