Famous French Fries by Nanny G

it is sooooo cold here today.. only 55 out and it is supposed to be a low of 39!! Perfect for hunting as anthony says and perfect for Remy to want to stay outside forever. I am COLD!!! but at this point I would rather be chilly then hot. It's been almost a week since Nanny G left but so many eventful things happened while he was here I have yet another post about it! Since our shopping trips were limited we decided we were just going to have hamburgers on the grill and french fries. However, no french fries in the house but we did have some potatoes... check out Dad cutting up the potatoes to make fries and put in the Fry Daddy. He even made them for my mom the day after he got home:-) Baby steps....
and of course we needed the beer in the picture too!!!
and Anthony out by the grill.. notice the huge flame in the door...yea I thought the soffit was going to burn!!

going to watch the spartans... GO GREEN!!!

it takes two men to do this...???

Happy Monday? I was pretty tired myself, from switching to first shift and my dad left this morning:-( Knowing he did not want to go and we didnt want him to go either.. even though I am sure we got on each other's nerves a little bit but what do you expect of being together 24/7 for a month!!! Thank God that he was able to come down and help out and I "taught" him how to do grocery shopping, cleaning, cooking, even pick up dog poop!! which is the subject of the post.. not really going to dwell on that because I don't usually talk about poop.. but this is too funny. Before bedrest I usually had to do this task about once every 2-3 days (Remy uses the bathroom a lot!!) so after about a week of my dad being here I kindly asked him to do this. Now remember this is something I do by myself all the time and this is what happened when I asked a man to do it>>>>>>and here is Dad's vacuuming skills.. (surprisingly he didn't need anybody to hold the cord for him!!)

This is what I get when the Doc says to come off bedrest...

I'm back!!! and hopefully more consistent this time...since I have more to write about then Remy.. Wow, a lot has happened in the past few months so I do have some back tracking to do.. We are pregnant with twins!!! so my blog will soon be more about the upcoming events of the McDonald Multiples!! Just to summarize I have been on bedrest for 6 weeks ( I know I was going crazy) and thankfully my dad came down to help. He has been doing more than he has ever done..dishes, grocery shopping, cleaning, etc!! But on Wednesday anthony was able to go with me to the doctor for the first time... he was so excited and amazed at the babies moving. This was the high risk doctor and babies were healthy and he took me off bedrest. We get home around 6:30pm cook dinner and I was out on the computer doing some emails and I noticed that in the living room it was really quiet...not typical for Dad who is always asking a billion questions to anthony:-) and this is what I found..........

even Remy joined them!!! They were sound asleep. More to come.
