High Reading

This morning the crazies decided to be rebels and put their chairs on the couch so they could "be higher up".


At least while sitting up higher they were reading which I love.

The Easter What?

What makes my girls run away and cry?



I suppose there are MANY MANY things that cause this, but this time it was the Easter Bunny. (This is Isaac on his lap.)


We went to the mall and tried to go sit on his lap. I don't know who I was fooling, because there was NO way on earth you were going to get the crazies to sit with him. Actually, there was no way that you could get them within 10 feet from him. They stayed far far away!

But they did like these bears who sang and danced.



Annie was definitely into it!!

Totally!

This ad is freakin hilarious!!!

First Years

I wanted to make something to see the growth of the kids during their first year. I wasn't so good at taking pics of the twins when they were babies. I don't think any of their pics were taken on their month birthday, but they were at least taken sometime in that month. I was better with Ty, but there were still pics not on her day. Oh well, it does the job for me and now I need to print and put in their books!
And don't mind the horrible picture taking. Some of the pics were taken on a crappy camera.

OMG!!!

Can I just say that two of my crazies have the worst luck! Between the two of them I am sure that we will see a hospital visit or two in our day.
I've mentioned that Ty is the biggest klutz of all time, but Annie just has plain old bad luck. She is the one that gets hurt so you can visibly see it and it makes you cringe.
My heart breaks every time she gets hurt and I look at her and am reminded that she had to go through that pain.
I don't know if you remember this owie moment.
I'm here to document another disaster.
While riding bikes, she lost control on a turn and Dan wasn't there to catch her. Don't worry, her face caught her fall--AGAIN.



This was about an hour after it happened and she had some pain reliever, some ice cream, and a movie to help it get better!


My poor baby. I feel so so bad for her.
Don't worry she is sucking it up and I don't blame her!!!!
Oh and this is Jo Jo when she didn't get any medicine. She was fine once she got her ice cream though!

Spring

It isn't even the first day of spring yet and we have been sleeping with our windows open.
The past couple of days we have had the air conditioner on in the evening when the sun comes in the front windows.
We have been wearing short sleeve shirts and shorts and loving the weather outside.
Spring here isn't too shabby!

Wow!

Babe,
You're getting up there aren't you!?! I hope that you have a wonderfully, tremendously, fantastic birthday! You are an amazing man and I love you dearly! I hope that you have a great year.

I love you so so much.

This Week....

The past week has been quite the week. The crazies have driven me to my wits end. I seriously thought about shipping them away for awhile, but I know once they are gone I will miss them terribly. Who couldn't miss this (even though they aren't suppose to be in there)?


The twins have pretty much lost their hearing. They don't hear one word of what I say. Oh but they most definitely hear me when I tell them "no movies at all today", "want a snack", or "lets go to the park".
They are also CONSTANTLY talking. Nobody has a chance to say anything with them around! They are always telling/making up stories. Maybe we have some authors on our hands!
They do play well together (for the most part)!



Then there is Ty.... She is definitely one in a million.



I think she thinks that she is ready for a big girl bed, since that is the first place she goes when we get done with family prayer.


She LOVES shoes. She will sometimes get mine out, but most the time she just loves to have her shoes on. And she makes sure that everyone knows that she is wearing them.


Just recently she started to always want a jacket or sweater on. Even on days like today when we didn't need one, she had to have it on.



If the twins leave her alone, she can play by herself for an hour or more.



She is cranky and likes to have her way. Don't ask me why she throws some of the tantrums she throws, but she is good at it. She had one this week that lasted for 1/2 an hour. I am not even sure how or why it started, but she eventually calmed down.






I am not sure why this week was such a bad one, but at least it is almost over! Hopefully next week will be better. At least there were a couple of good moments!

Sleep and Food

A few nights ago the girls kept coming out of their bedroom thinking of excuses to not go to bed. They finally came out and said that they couldn't sleep and asked if they could sleep in our bed. We agreed and the house was quiet the rest of the evening.
When we went to put them in their own beds I started to laugh.
Any wonder why they couldn't sleep?


At least they were comfy in our bed!


Ty is never in a good mood at night.
Dan gave her what was left of the chips to calm her down and she was in heaven.

Change

We (and when I say 'we' I mean 'I') decided to make a little change to Annie. I just thought it would be fun and different.
Before


After



She was watching the whole thing in the mirror and before I was even done, she was laughing and saying how weird she looked. She loves it though and is so excited to show people especially her Daddy!
I didn't do anything with my Jo Jo because I once again caught her with some scissors (she didn't cut anything), but I just know that one of these days she is going to get to her hair again.
Oh what am I going to do with that crazy child of mine?

Dan My Man!

Dan,
I just wanted to say how proud I am of you.
I love you so much and I know how hard you worked for this.
I'm grateful to have you in my life and extremely grateful that you work hard to support all of us.
I hope that the next stage goes by just as fast.
You'll be awesome!

And by the way...


You're HOT!!!

P.S. Nice gifts guys! You know who you are.

Our Fun Filled Weekend

We had visitors this past weekend.
They all came to support Dan with his work.
My parents and Morgan and her fam stayed at the Palms hotel. They got pretty lucky with their upgraded rooms. A Suite and Penthouse? Are you serious!
Some of us went to the Shark Reef and had a good time.
Oaks and Jo Jo were the only older kids that went. It was so weird to only have one child to look after.
So calm and relaxing!


Dan even took me out on a date while his family watched the crazies. It was nice and definitely needed.
It was a fun weekend and I'm so thankful for all of you who came to visit! It meant a lot to Dan.
