Its been too long!

I don’t even know where to start!  I guess I will be playing a lot of catch up.  What else is new?  For now, we are here…and alive.  And here is the proof!  And after this little project I remembered why I hardly ever take portraits of my own kids!  Thank heavens for Ciera who was there to help and keep me from having a nervous breakdown and throwing them all in the lake!  Ciera also took the photos of the girls and I…which I’m not gonna lie… I absolutely adore! Thanks Marge!

Adventures in oatmeal land

I’m pretty sure this sweet girl ate more than any baby I’ve ever seen at this age.  Unbelievable!  Maybe I will actually get a chunky baby yet!


I think she may have been as shocked as I was!

Anyone else think this might be a problem??? Oh boy!

A few more that I forgot!

I had fun catching some moments of Brinlee and Rylin while she was staying with us.  Things got a little crazy afterward and I didn’t get a chance to post these ones!  I was getting them ready for the day and they just looked so stinkin cute that I couldn’t resist!

and of course there was a little dancing to Parkers jams!  These kids really do crack me up!

The Man

Blythe is smiling a lot more now (thank heavens!)  She will smile and coo at Danny and I when she is happiest, which is usually right after she has eaten and been changed (girls got priorities!) 

But Parker is still the best at getting her to smile -

(this picture melts my heart)


I’ve been watching and I’ve noticed he has a system!  He tugs on her chubby little cheek and says

“are you gonna smile at me?” and just like that…she does.

Normally this wouldn’t be such an amazing feet, but for this sweet girl who has basically screamed for 3 months straight…it’s incredible!  Sometimes if she is getting grouchy and the cheek tug won’t work, he has to pull out the big guns and clap her tiny hands together…works every time!

What do you do…

When it’s 11am and you have a tornado of a house, a ton of dishes, children to bathe/dress, a lunch to pack, a baby to feed and a kid to get off to school?

Jump on the trampoline…in your jammies…eating chocolate chip pancakes with your hands.

Oh well, there is always tomorrow to be efficient right?

The Princess and the Frog

Its amazing what you can come up with to get kids out of the tub.  Brinlee and Rylin were having such a great time playing with ponies in the tub that I let them – until they started to prune beyond recognition and it was time to get Parker off to school.  I decided it was time to pull them out.  They disagreed.  Boy am I glad I decided to get these cute towels for the kids for Easter!  They love the new disney movie Princess and the Frog of course and this fit the bill perfectly!  Phew…that was a close one!

This week is going to be fun.  The kids are so excited (especially Brinlee) because Ry came on Saturday and she is spending the night for 4 nights!!!!  They have been having so much fun – minus the whole ‘stomach flu Ry throwing up this morning’ situation!  The girls have had so much fun and when I busted out the camera this evening while they were playing hoping to get a sweet picture for them to treasure for life…this is what I got.  Good thing they still have that “cute” factor going for them huh?
