Everyone's thankful Miriam's post has changed!!!

Yeah Yeah Yeah, I am so sick of people telling me that they are sick of looking at the same post. So to appease all you naggy people this will be short and to the point.

We are heading to Oregon to spend Thanksgiving with Johns sisters and Father. Wish us all the luck. Actually pray for us..

The last vacation we went on it was basically a ring around the barf circle. One threw up and then the other saw it or smelt it and they threw up and the circle finally stopped at the fourth kid. FUN TIMES!!!! Thus is why we never travel during the day anymore. Benadryl and bedtime has helped us travel.

We are leaving Wed, in the MORNING and driving straight through. I bought Costco out of all their black 30 gallon trash bags and thought I'd be safe and emptied their gallon size ziplocks also.

People say that memories fade, well guess what? Until you have been in a car with four kids barfing, with no barf bags and having to ride the rest of the trip with windows down and clorox wipes shoved up your nose to disguise the smell I have nothing to say to you.

To make matters worse, Our windows on our so dependable vehicle don't roll up..... They roll down just fine but hey, if you didn't read the last blog entry on the whole birthday car times you might want to catch up. I'm just saying, there can be no barfing in the car when the windows don't work.....

Please continue to laugh in mockery, but also say a little prayer for us. John is working graves to top it off so I can feel the fun times rolling around the corner.

So about January or February I will get around to telling you how the trip went. Kee Kee Kee

Remember the prayer thing!!!! You can stand, sit, squat, run, I don't care, just pray... I think I am going to medicate myself this time!

Good luck with that. I don't think I'd do too well traveling with that going on. Your poor thing. I am glad to see your post change by the way.

It's going to all be worth it!

Wow, sounds like loads of fun. I didn't realize this trip was going to be so....graphic. At least you'll all have empty stomaches for Thanksgiving. There's always a silver lining.

Mmmmmm...barf and travelling....not a good combo. I hope you have fun, though!! I wish I was going on a vacation! :(

LOL, We had a trip like that once. We drove from Texas to Utah and we were in the car for 24 hours straight. Brooklyn threw up, Sam was a tiny baby and filled his carseat with what babies do best, poor Jake had to pee in a bottle and lets just say Kevin hit a few pot holes just right. I was still nursing sam. I would pump then feed him a bottle so I didn't have to take him out of his carseat. After that I had to get rid of the milk he didn't drink, so it didn't go sour. I would fill the bottle with water and swoosh it around. Well I was in the back seat and it was a minivan so I asked Kevin to roll his window down. Then I leaned forward and tossed it out his window. The wind blew every drop back in and all over Kevin. He was like "WHAT WAS THAT?" Poor guy! I could not stop laughing. Yea, we pretty much covered all of the bodily functions on that trip. Have a great time!

I'm glad you made it here and back safely. Thanks for coming! It was so nice to come home to a clean, organized house (which we promptly trashed) and the beautiful sign that now hangs in our kitchen. It's just what I would have chosen! You are so kind and thoughtful to do that! Hope to meet you in person again someday soon!

Hey! I know this is totally random, but Jenn Christensen found my blog and then I found yours through, her. Hope you don't mind, but I just had to peek in on you guys! I saw those pics of Josh and I just missed that little guy so much! Give him a big squeeze for me! Hope your holidays were merry and bright! So fun to catch up with you.
