rain, rain go away

With all this rain we've been having lately, we've been doing lots of indoor things: baking cookies, cleaning house, playing princesses and catching up on Dora the Explorer. Also, yesterday we got to spend time at Judy and Ken's house and, visit with our good friends, the Thomas' (who are here from CO) It's been so nice to see them again and, Katie has had a great time playing with their girl, Patience (they also have 6 boys!). I realize all this rain is good for the ground and, Nevada has probably never been greener, however I'm starting to worry a little about our garden. The seeds that haven't come up yet aren't getting the chance to dry out and soak up any sun. Instead, they are sitting day after day in puddles of water... so, I'll be surprised if they make it! Anyhow, my parents came over for dinner and ice cream tonight. Here they are with the kids... it's so hard getting ALL of the kids to look at the camera at the same time AND smile! The kid's new favorite song is "rain, rain, go away... come back another day"!! And, Katie informed me yesterday that it's been raining "forty days and forty nights"... glad to know she's been listening to Mr Doug in Sunday school! I should've took it as a "sign" when Tys and Katie were trying to build Noah's ark with their daddy's wood a couple of weeks ago :)
