We are the Bears Shufflin' Crew………….

We are the Bears Shufflin' Crew
Shufflin' on down, doin' it for you.
We're so bad we know we're good.
Blowin' your mind like we knew we would.
You know we're just struttin' for fun
Struttin' our stuff for everyone.
We're not here to start no trouble.
We're just here to do the Super Bowl Shuffle.

Super Bowl Shuffle - video powered by Metacafe

Yep that is right, get ready for the next Super Bowl Champs, the Chicago Bears.

I really wanted it to be the Patriots vs the Bears, but I'll take the Colts. The last time the Bears won the Super Bowl we lived in Chicago. To this day I can sing the Super Bowl Shuffle almost word for word. I had a Refrigerator Perry shirt that I wore. We had Bears day at school to celebrate. My parents have a video of me not only zsinging the Super Bowl shuffle, but actually doing all the moves jsut like the players.

First the kids…..

JJ was 2 month old on Thurs. We went to the doctor and he said that everything was fine. Here were his stats:

Height - 23.5 inches which is in the 72% for kids his age
Weight - 10lbs 0ozs which is in the 15% for kids his age

We go see the surgeon for our check up tomorrow. He is doing a lot better. He has shots on Friday, so it made him a little cranky and irritable this weekend.

Breanna was 1 1/2 on Sat. She didn't have to go to the doctor, but here are her stats.

Height - 32 inches which is in the 70% for kids her age
Weight - 21lbs 8ozs, which is in the 14% for kids her age.

Second we are moving…….
A few details on the house. It is about 1800 sq feet. There are 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bath. The kids bathroom is pretty big. There is a kitchen large enough to put the table in. The living room has two sections, one that may be used as a dining room, but we are going to use it as a place in the living room for the kids toys. Their bedrooms are VERY large. There use to be a screened in porch on the back of the house, they took that out and extended the house out. So the bedrooms on the back of the house have a bit extra room in them. It has a two car garage and the backyard has a storage building in it.
Finally it is a lot closer to mom and dads house. We are about 4.5 miles east of them and about 1 mile south.
We will be making the actual move the weekend of Feb 17th-18th. Here is a map and picture of the outside of the house. I am going to go over there and take some pictures of the inside of the house this week sometime I'll send those later this week.

We had a great weekend last weekend. Melissa and Frank came for a visit. We had a great time with them. Frank is just sooooo nice. He seems to fit in with the rest of us, which sometime isn't that easy to do. I am impressed he just jumped right in there and was playing with the kids and laughing and joking with us. Melissa seemed to be very happy. Breanna loved playing around with him. He gets the sister stamp of approval from me. Jay even liked him, and Jay doesn't always like people.

We had some family pictures taken this weekend. We had planned on having Grandma and Grandad here to take pictures, but the weather had other plans. They couldn't come because of the weather that we had over the weekend. We will have some more pictures taken the next time we can get them here.

On a side note…I may have broken my toe this morning (a true McClain tradition) walking through a dark house. I kicked a chair walking through the kitchen. Trying to be quiet so I would not wake sleeping children. I have taken my shoe off since I have been at work and my toe is nice and large and a little blue. I have already broken that toe once, so I know ya just tape it to the one next to it and go on.

The song made me laugh!

I'm so glad you found a new place and one you seem to love already!
The pictures are all just soooo great. It made me laugh that there is a picture of your parents with the grandkids but not one of your parents with you and melissa. Though I am sure one was taken and you just didn't post it! Hope your toe gets better.
