Make it stop!!

So last week my baby turned 4. (sigh)

This week one of my 11 year olds got her first...ZIT! What is happening around here? SERIOUSLY! MAKE IT STOP!!! Not only is she getting a couple of pimples but she is happy about it! She is in her room right now bragging to her twin sister. I just heard her say "Hey Riley, I'm maturing faster than you". Now, we know all about sibling rivalry around here, but come on! We don't need to race to adulthood!

First it's zits next it's... YIKES!! I'm on my way to walgreens to stock-up on clearasil!!

Birthday Boy

What happened to my baby???? Where did he go? Lucas turned 4 last weekend. I can't believe it. He thinks he is so grown up but I remind him all of the time that he will ALWAYS be my baby.
Same dimples. Same big blue eyes. Same sweet boy. Just a little bit bigger.
Happy Birthday Lucky!

My sister Amber had her baby...Brady Reed Garrett. Isn't he a cutie??? He makes #4 for her (only boy), #9 for our side of the family, and #20 on our in-laws side of the family(remember, we share in-laws). His big sisters love him as do his cousins!! We are so excited to have him in our family!

Halloween night

I finally found Macy a Princess Leia costume so Macy was thrilled! She wanted to dress up as a Star Wars Character just like the boys.
On Halloween night we went to a Trunk-orTreat party at church. And then finished off the evening by trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, We got way too much candy.

Riley and Tyler were hilarious hippies. I even made their bellbottoms. I actually had to hide them after Halloween because they kept wearing them to school! They loved them!

May the Force be with you!!!

Halloween with Grammy

A few nights before Halloween we went to Grammy's to celebrate. She had a cup cake-cake and chili dogs. YUMMY!
All of the kids dressed up in ther costumes. The twins were hippies. Gage was Darth Vader and Lucas was Yoda(a little bit blurry because he is swinging that green lightsaber). Macy was Dorothy because I couldn't find her the Princess Leia costume that she wanted. Carly was a punk rocker. Jenna was a witch and Georgia was "Tinkybell".
Grammy got everybody a pumpkin to carve. The kids' mostly designed there own but of course had help carving.
They turned out really cute!!!

Happy 9th Birthday October

Boys are awesome! They are so easy!! And Gage is no exception. All he wanted for a birthday party was to play flag football with all of his friends. So thats just what we did. And all we needed was... Football cupcakes, lots of snacks and a cooler full of gatorade...
A bunch of fun, hyper boys(about 16 of them)...
A park on a gorgeous day...

and A very patient, football- lovin' uncle Reed. (Thank you Reed!!)

Gage got an electric guitar for his birthday. He picked it out months ago and was promised he could have it if he learned to play several songs first on his acoustic.

Rock on Gage!! We love you!!!
