A Collage of Thoughts




WHO DO YOU THINK WILL BE OUR NEXT SUPER- MODEL?

Those pictures were taken last week while at our family reunion with Ben's mom, brothers, and sister. We had a good time and the cousins really loved being together. We've got quite a handful now. Most of the adults were done by the third day but we finished the week with gusto anyway. We were at a LBJ Lake which was a great place to be. They had good grass, which is not an assumption anyone should make (You know what happens when you assume!), and we were right on the lake front. It was great.

My last comment has to do with drinking. There are some things that are okay to drink and some that are not okay to drink. For instance, you probably should not drink any chemicals. That would do some damage! You should not drink a gallon of milk, either. Have you ever seen anyone keep it down? But I have heard that some things are okay to drink. Alcohol, per say, could be a drink of choice... or even V8, which, to be honest, I have never tried. I've also heard that urine is actually very sanitary and would not cause damage to one's internals. And so, I hope this is the case. For in the bath tonight my son peed into the hands of my youngest child and she drank it. Who's idea this was, I can only guess. I was completely disgusted. How revolting! Nevertheless,I am thankful for that particular piece of information otherwise, I really would have freaked out! Please let me know asap if I am incorrect on this information. It may be too late...

Seriously, i'm loving these stories. Can you tell me stories everyday. Hey, i just invited Ry and Tar - you also must write in our book - "The family story book"- you could add some of all the incredible adventure stories your children act out everyday!! Oh, and you can be on Oprah too.

goodbye forever izzy. once you drink pee, you are dead to me.im sorry that you wont be able to have your daddy walk you down the isle...or even get potty trained and wear big girl panties, for that matter. i will see you in heaven precious little one.

tara said...

eric and i saw on the discovery channel, some people lost out in africa had to drink their own pee and, im sorry to say started to kill them...i think they said you shouldnt put back in your body the bacteria and that your body purposely flushed out...but i dont think one shot of pee would do that sort of thing. now if she was chugging...who can say.

tara said...

p.s. izzies hair is looking as cute as ever! :)

Rizzle said...

Umm, mom, I don't think you should turn a blind eye to this problem by saying that your grandkids are precious. The issue at hand is that your "precious" kids are drinking peepee. That is, in some countries, sinful.

Robby and Lynsey said...

You're kids are all so beautiful! A little gross? sure ... but hey - what's a little pee now and again. (Seriously - do you make this stuff up????) :)

arwen said...

i like how your pictures illustrate the personalities of your children(or 2 real kids and a pretend kid that drinks pee, as it may be)
at the top we have pretty little Emma, sweet as can be (we know the truth... i remember her as a toddler...)
in the middle is dirty little pee drinker Izzy: messy, but still cute as can be.
and finally, we have Aiden: the monster mastermind of it all...
wonderful picture choice. simply wonderful.

please don't be mad at me for saying these things about your children. I like your kids. i especially like aiden cause he used to hide peanut butter in his bed...

Lori Ann said...

Ha, Ha, Ha!
I love it.
BTW, Emma looks so grown up. I can't believe how much she has changed.

jocelyn said...

That's disgusting. But understandable, I guess. It looks a little like lemonade.

Urine, the drink of choice when lost at sea in a little dingy boat. Maybe Izzy is just gaining some experience for a life on the sea.

Jess said...

Jen said...

I appreciated all your camera work. It wasn't very helpful for you to get sick, though. I actually had to pick up my own camera!

Hey, everyone. andy's in a drawing class. wanna know what he's been drawing?

RoniZee said...

Forget the pee story, didn't anyone else notice that she said there was a lot of "good grass" at the family reunion? What was it, a reunion of hippies? What's next, a crack whore reunion?

(Am I allowed to say "whore" on here?)

Nana Lesa said...

Well, I think the pee drinking episode may top any of the stories I have about their father....but I will have to think about it. (Be afraid, Ben, be very afraid!!) Seriously....your kids are great and I agree with Marmme - they are sweet, precious (and a little gross!)

Andz said...

Why is it that every time I am around your kids I puke a kidney? Obviously it may be from their hygiene issues.

I am happy to show the portrait of Jen that I drew. I love the emotion in this one.

dodyb said...

Jen did your arm get tired? You must have held it there a long time. :)

Chezam said...

So your family is THAT kind of family... posing nude for in-laws and what not. I'm curious however, how did this event occur? Were you watching and screaming down the hallway on your way to stop the drinking as it happened in slow motion before your very eyes? Or was this a freak thing where you turn your head and see a boy aiming, a girl lifting her cupped hands, and your scream is stuck in your throat as she slurps it up? Or did Emma report?

John Ellison said...

Wow...where to start. I guess with the pee...I've heard you can recycle your pee 7 times before you fully deplete all the extra nutrients and such from it. Not sure who or why they figured this out, just what I heard. Definitely gross. Great stories Jen! Miss you all tons!

John

Jen said...

It was definately an Emma report! She's so good at it.

Thanks John. I don't think Izzy took her vitamins that day so maybe it was like a supplement...

tara said...

lol supplement. good one.
