Half a Christmas

Our Christmas tree is pretty pathetic this year! We couldn't put the ornaments on the bottom half of it because well, let's face the truth we own two crazy little monsters that eat ornaments for lunch.  We are not even sure if this poor bald tree will even make it till Christmas because the boys still won't leave it alone.  They have now figured out how to plug and unplug the lights which is just fabulous news.  Oh well at least we tried and have a picture to prove it!
I think we will still keep them.  Good thing they are cute little stinkers!

We Have A Little Thief On Our Hands

Today Ava came out of her Preschool walking funny. At first I thought she must of hurt her foot or something at recess.  When I got her in the car and asked her what had happened she proceeds to tell that she has something in her shoe that she wants to show me!?!  So when we got home I made her take off her shoe and this is what was inside....

A feather and a white bead!  No wonder she was walking funny! I wish I could say that this was her first offense, but it isn't she has done it two other times earlier in the year.  All of the items were small insignificant things to us, but to her they are treasures. I have given her the talk that we don't take things that aren't yours, but I guess it isn't sinking in.  I don't know if I should laugh or get mad at her.  Until we figure out what to do with our little thief you had better keep an eye on all of your fuzzies, feathers and buttons!

Let There Be Turkey

We finally have a home big enough to host Thanksgiving so we quickly got nominated to have it this year. The thought of it sounded great, but then I remembered that Chris works for Target and would not be around to help me at all!!! The week leading up to it was pretty crazy and I almost just told everyone that it wasn't going to happen, but somehow we pulled it off and the day was great.
Our Little Indian
Oh how I love these two crazies!

The kids table

Aunt Mellanie brought her cotton candy maker! The kids thought it was the best thing ever. She is for sure invited every year!
It was great to get everyone together, but wow I am so glad it is over! I am one tired Momma!

Lately I have been feeling guilty that I haven't been giving all my kids the same amount of attention.  I usually have one if not both boys crawling all over me.  I try to give the girls attention when the boys are asleep,  but then there isn't anytime for cleaning or a shower. Ava gets some alone time with me when Myla is at school and the boys are napping. Poor Myla,  I feel like she gets neglected a lot because she already knows how to do things on her own.  I wish I could just freeze moments during the day so that I can make sure that they all feel loved and cared for. I don't want people to think I am complaining because I am not.  I know how blessed I am to have these four kiddos I think I just need to vent.

This most likely is not a great post for people to read, but I want to remember,

He has the best belly laugh ever

When Daddy Comes Home

These two light up when Daddy comes home from work!  I love to sit back and watch how they follow him around and when ever Chris looks at them they both just start laughing. These two definitely love their Momma but they have a special kind of love for Daddy.

You might have noticed that Greyson has on Khales helmet  in the above picture.  He thinks he is hilarious in it and tries to pull it off of Khales head so he can wear it.

Khale doesn't seem to mind sharing I think he is just over joyed to get that sweaty thing off his head.

Not Much

Not Much has been happening around here lately.  It feels like all I do right now is feed babies and change dirty diapers.  I don't mean to sound like I am complaining  because I'm not that is literally all I ever do anymore. Well I guess there is a little room for all of the hugs and kisses and cuddles that I get from my kiddos.  Life is Good!

YIKES! I just realized that this picture is one of the only pictures that I have of Myla since Christmas! Sorry Myla! Mommy is going to take at least 5 pictures of you tomorrow.

Our 2011



Kinda sad that we don't have any pictures from February, but Mommy was on bed rest.
