I've been stalling...

So Im back from Seattle. I had a wonderful time with my family and seeing the beautiful NW again. I have been stalling to post because I dont have any pictures to post yet. My sisters camera broke so before I came she kept reminding me to bring mine so that we could take pictures. I was so paranoid about making sure that I packed it, I never once considered the fact that it may need to be charged. Typically when we go anywhere Curt is the one who makes sure all chargers are packed and it didnt cross my mind that I should take the charger. So I get to Seattle, so proud of myself that I remember the camera, whip it out, take 2 pictures and it dies!!!!!!!!!!!! I could not believe it! So immeadiately I call Curt to see if he will over night the charger because its so important that I take pictures. He went to mail it and found out that it would cost about $40 to over night it. Arrrrrrgh! So annoying....Curt then has this brilliant idea that I should just buy a disposable camera and we will just have the pictures put on a disk and I can do whatever I wish with them. I was reluctant but desperate so I took his advice. Im not sure that I have ever felt like a bigger nerd in my life. I felt like my 80yr old Grandma whipping out her wind up camera, saying, ok kids gather around...then trying to figure out how to turn on the flash and then starts to take the picture and has forgotten to wind it. I kid you not, I think my 1 year old nephew Jace thought we were joking when we heldthe camera up to our face and told him to smile. Everytime we did it he would look at us like...."what in the heck are you doing?, Is that a toy?" The first few times I took pictures, Julia would ask if she could see the picture on the back of the camera. We explained to her that this was a special camera that didnt have the picture on the back. She looked at us like, "HUH? What does that mean?"Its amazing the technology that kids are growing up in. They get to see pictures instantly and think its bizzare if the camera does not have that feature :) So needless to say I have not had time to go get the pictures developed....well, maybe I have had time but I keep forgetting or maybe I am just throughly embarassed to take my wind up camera into Costco.
So, cute story. Jana taught both of her kids sign language before they could talk, so ofcourse Julia doesnt use it anymore but Jace is really into it. Its so adorable. Anyways, Sunday morning Jana and I got to church and she realized that she had forgotten Jace's milk cup. That was a bummer but she figured he would be ok for a while. After church Jana and Justin had to stay for a while but I wanted to get home to watch the rest of the Seahawks game. I grabbed both of the kids, stuck them in the car and raced home. On our way the car was slient for a while and then all of a sudden Julia starts yelling at Jace, "Jace, NO!!!! Stop IT"....I was a bit confused as to why she was yelling at him because they were both being quiet . I asked her what was wrong and she said " Jace keeps asking for milk". I about died laughing.....of course I couldnt see him asking becuase he was signing for it but when he asks for his milk he will just stare at you and sign for it until he gets it. He must have been staring at her and she just got really annoyed with him. Kids!!! They are such a joy in life.....I have to go...my husband is patiently waiting for me at the door. I will post again shortly......

Howdy friends... I'm so glad that you're blogging! I know I can't say much since we've been rather delinquent bloggers... but it's good to hear how life is going now that you're so far away. Thanks for sharing the fun stories - so funny about the camera! I keep thinking of the little kids at the deaf school in Jamaica who were so amazed that the picture showed up on the back of the camera - funny to think it's the other way around here!
