Yesterday we celebrated Franja by having a shower for Annie. Despite the fact the I had to wrong address on the invites, everyone came and I think had a grand old time. The food was yummy, and Annie got a load of happy baby loot.

The baby shower was also alive with little people. Christopher had a blast with chatting with his little friends and thinking he was a big boy.

Check out this site. I kid you not, Zita is a more popular name that Anja (in the US). Way to go on originality, Annie!! Although, I don't know how trustworthy it is . . . it says there are zero PeterXavier's!!
For Christopher's birthday, his loving aunt and uncle got him a pet frog. I think they underestimated the effect that this little pet would have on our entire household. The kids love him -- I think PeterXavier would sleep with him at night if I let him. But this little frog has led this little family on quite the adventure. For starters, we are already on frog number 2. Don't ask me what happened to the first one, because no one know. He's just gone. vanished.

The other thing about our frog friend is that he his a very finicky eater. Worse than my kids. He'll only eat moving food. So the meal worms that you purchase by the 50 count and then die, he won't eat. This means that my husband is running out to the pet store for live crickets every other day. So this morning, tired of going cricket hunting every night, (did I mention that the kids like to catch frog food?) he has now decided to breed beetles for the frog.

I can't wait until little Franja is old enough for pets. I'm going to drop a doozy of a creature on old Nana and Martin.

I think I believe in global warming now. This is crazy weather. Thank goodness for uncles with swimming pools!! Annie, my mom, and I took the kidders over to swim today. The water was the temperature of an average August day, but today, that was refreshing.

Andrew is going to take the kids to dulcimers at the fountain tonight and let them get nice and soggy. I think these "dog days" of summer should be renamed the "water days" because that is the only way to survive.

Don't melt!

I can't believe it has been over a week since I last posted. I apologize to all of my readers!! I hope you haven't abandon me.

We had a wonderfully successful garage sale at my mom's today. Hooray for people who paid me money for my junk. I love you all.

Tomorrow, Andrew is in the chili cookoff at Sportsman's Warehouse. Come vote for his awesome chili!!

And that is all I have to say for today, because I am tired. Soon, I will post pictures of my silly monkeys on their new bikes. Good night!
