Spring Break

We are on Spring Break this week, can you tell?!? Go figure, but really who can complain about 10 days off!?
We kicked off the week with a little breakfast treat. I had made these once before and the kids gobbled them up, so I thought it would be a fun first day of break treat. Mine didn't turn out as pretty as hers. They were yummy though!

I also took Connor roller skating for his first time. The school sponsors a skate a couple of times a year, but we don't usually go because it is on a school night. He was excited, but after standing up once and wobbling he sat down and was ready to take off the skates and go home. I convinced him he'd get better and we weren't giving up! After one circle, I wasn't sure I was going to make it! I was just about sweating from holding him up and my back was hurting! Thank goodness for these amazing inventions!! It helped him and he got so much better! He can't wait to go back!
I may have a slight obsession with baking, right now it is with cake balls. I had 120+ in the freezer to decorate this week. I am no professional and if you look close, they really aren't that pretty. However, I love making them. It is almost therapeutic for me. They taste delicious too!
This batch we are delivering today when we go visit this sweet guy! He is the newest addition to our "teacher mom" play group. Luke Ryan was born on Friday and we can't wait to meet him. He makes the 8th boy, dominating the 3 girls!
No major plans for break just playing, cleaning, organizing, baking, and hopefully a little relaxing too!

Connor is officially 6!

We had a little celebration for Connor's birthday today. Just us and the grandparents. Very low key and enjoyable for all! Connor woke up this morning to crepe paper on his door and balloons blocking his way down the steps. He picked pancakes for breakfast and we just hung out around the house all morning. Once the company arrived, he wanted to get right to it!
Lookin' good!
  He was quite surprised by with a Kindle fire from us. Hopefully this will prevent my phone and ipad from disappearing so much! He seemed to love it. I now have to learn more about how to use it!
 What is a birthday without legos!?

He wanted chocolate cupcakes, so I put a pinterest twist on them and turned them into shamrocks. I thought they turned out pretty cute and the girls were really impressed!! 

We had a great weekend and I can't believe my baby is 6. He is growing up before my eyes and I don't want to forget a moment of it!

Birthday Week Kick-off

At our house, we celebrate birthday week and sometimes more! This year, we gave Connor the choice of a family party, like we have always done or to pick 2 friends and go to Monster Jam. Really?!? Like we had to ask : ) So Monster Jam was the weekend before his actual birthday and it kicked off the festivities! He wanted to take two boys from his class, one of which is a neighbor. The neighbor said he'd go with their other son, so here they are enjoying the dust in the arena! 
 Ken was good about taking and sending pictures, I preferred the pink truck!! As you can see, she turned out to not such a good driver. Are they stereotyping women drivers as part of the show?!?

 The boys seemed to enjoy the girl getting shot out of the canon best! They came back to our house and it is all they could talk about. One of them said, "She got shot out of the canon and didn't even died!"
 After the show we celebrated with the boys and our neighborhood family with pizza, cake, and ice cream. Easy for me and they all loved it!



Connor told Ken the next morning that it was a really nice birthday = success.

New Year, New Goals

I want to update the blog more often. I want to share more of what we are doing. I want to go backwards and give updates, but instead I am going to start fresh. 

I wish I new more about technology to make my blog and postings cuter and fancier, but I don't. And right now, I don't have that kind of time to spend learning. 

After all, when we look back at the blog, we care about pictures and happenings, not all the "extras".

Here are the munchkins on Christmas Eve...growing like weeds! Hopefully you'll be able to see their personalities start to shine through!

So here's to more updates in 2013! We'll see how long I can keep it up!

Happy Easter!

I know, it's been awhile.

Hoping to get back into it, but I can't make any promises.

We decorated eggs this morning after watching Special Agent Oso decorate his. The kids were really excited and did a good job. They only got slightly impatient when the yellow didn't color fast enough!


Maybe tomorrow I'll actually post pictures in their Easter clothes ; )
Happy Easter to you all!

Christmas Program

I know I've mentioned a few times how cute this little boy is. Little boy!?! Take a look at this handsome guy. Where did my baby go?
Connor had his Preschool Christmas Program this week and when I told him he needed to dress up, he immediately asked if he could wear a tie. Sure we had two days to shop for an outfit, but we were getting him a tie. He may never want to wear a tie again! I sent the boys on errands and put it on their list : ) I think they did great or as Connor said, "mom, I think this may bring a tear to your eye" as he tried his clothes on.

(here he is giving his dad a thumbs up as he enters the stage)

He melts my heart everyday. And I love how he takes everything he does so seriously.

This is going to be one magical Christmas!

9 years!

Today Ken and I celebrate our 9 year anniversary!! I can't believe it has been 9 years. My how we've grown-up together!!! I looked back to see if I have ever blogged about our anniversary before. This is the only time I did. It made me smile because obviously I had no idea our future would hold twins...so here's to many more unpredictable years.

As the kids are yelling or driving us slightly crazy we always say to each other slightly sarcastically aren't we blessed. It is so true though, we are so lucky to have each other and 3 healthy, beautiful children.
