We Come Like a Hurricane

We arrived in RI last night - by packed out minivan - to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas with the Violets.

And this is what ensued:

First snow of the season.
Selah ripped off half of her nail in a filing cabinet.
Paul flooded my parents' toilet.
Adden threw up all night long. (First time ever, I might add:)

Is this for real?

I am laughing now. (After the cleanup, a nap, a shower, and the impression that Adden just might be okay after all.)

Too funny. Here's hoping for less drama the rest of the week:)

Also, has RI even heard of child labor laws?
Selah, as an administrative assistant you get 15 minute breaks every 4 hours. Know your rights.

WOW!!! Sounds like a great way to begin celebrating with the family! May the rest of your visit be blessed with some rest and relaxation and be a lot less eventful! :) Enjoy the time with your family!!

Someone had been DESTROYING the toilets at work. I now suspect it was Paul, and not Muggles!

Sorry for ratting Paul's trouble out to the dev team @ MPS ,but I couldn't resist. I tried to ,but I couldn't, and I only tweeted it, didn't encourage Drew to e-mail everyone. I'm sure Paul has totalled at least 1 toilet for real in the last year anyway, even if this wasn't it. :)

rob, not sure if we'll let you off the hook or not. paul will have to be the judge.

today was much much better, thank God!
