EDITED TO ADD LAST PARAGRAPH AND PICTURE
There is a raging debate on a friend's blog about the correct way to hang toilet paper roll. Why this is important, I have no idea since, as everyone knows, over the top is the way to go. (Take that, Keetha!) Anyway, I have a much more urgent question: What do you do when your TP roll looks like THIS:
Yup. We're out of toilet paper. I know this is shocking to all you June Cleaver-types who have Y2K stockpiles of TP to last until Jesus returns, but that's not how we roll. (Snort, snort. I didn't even mean to be punny. It's a gift.) So we here in the Swan house are either praying for the Lord's return because I KNOW He's got enough TP for eternity or for Stephen to come back from taekwondo class and, more importantly, Wal-Mart. In the meantime, we're thankful that Katy is potty training so that we have some flushable toddler wipes on hand. :)
Other thrilling news? Ken and Sarah are back from Virginia! Katy and Caleb were so glad to have Grandpa and Grandma back. Those of you whose family is very distant may find us a bit spoiled, but we really miss our family when they're gone, even if we get to see them a few times a week. We see them that often because we like them! In this picture, Grandpa took the kiddos (one at a time) on a tractor ride. We're so glad you're home!
The last bit of news is sad. Katy was playing in the yard at my Papaw's house when she picked up a toy with a hornet or yellow jacket nest inside. She got 5 pretty serious stings and a few "bites." She was brave, but it was still painful -- for Mommy and Katy. Here's a picture of us attempting to be brave.
