Filler Post and Filler Children

I spent the weekend in a Minneapolis hotel room with 1 husband, 3 children and 2 double beds.

I am tired.

But my little brother is now married, so it was all worth it.  I have many stories and pictures to share, but for now I will just provide the following updates for those of you on the edge of your seats:

Toes:  I went with french.  I was all set to ask for a blue flower, but the pedicurist and I had a bit of a language barrier so I decided to just make it easier on both of us and go with a one-word request.  Of course then I got home and saw all the comments suggesting pink!  (Note to self:  Submit blog post requesting pedicure advice sooner than 10 minutes before leaving for said pedicure.)

Dress:  I got it from Von Maur, a local department store here in town - but I'm sure you could find it Macy's or Nordstrom's or Dillards or whatever your local department store happens to be named.  The brand was Maggy London.

And now for something completely different, my kids are famous!  Last week they were "filler children" in a local news piece about chiropractic care for babies.  My three kids are on the swings and are the examples of "non-adjusted" children - oh, how fitting that description is.  My favorite part is when the doctor being interviewed says chiropractic care is not recommended for children with down syndrome and then the camera cuts in for a close-up of Ashley saying "Whoo hoo!".  As if we didn't get enough questions about her. 

Click here to see my little ones in all their glory:

You might want to shield your eyes from the brightness of Aidan's shirt.  And don't look at his high-waters.  And don't pay attention to that dead staked tree behind the young sapling - we're going to pull it out eventually, I swear.

Hilarious - your kids are now famous! And you'll have to show pics of the toes, let us see how it turned out!

So funny. Don't think I'm going to rush out and let people mash on my kids' spines.

I can't wait to see how your pedicure turned out.

LOL! Your kids are adorable!

My youngest saw a chiropractor after falling on his head off a climber at daycare. Insurance didn't want to cover it. They won't cover it for babies "just because". You need to have a medical reason.

I want to see pics of the toes.

LOL, your kids looks like they had a blast. So did they newscasters just walk up to your house and ask to film your kids in the yard?? And Ashley's "whoohoo" was perfect, LOL.

I had to watch this video after reading your commentary. I wouldn't have thought twice about seeing it but for the hilarious things you pointed out. Thanks for the laugh. :)

And yeah for famous kids and dead trees :)
