"Mom, our seats can be used as a flotation device!"

Who knew that the emergency airplane instructions could be entertaining. So colorful for the kids to look at. I hurried to sneak this shot. It was so funny!

Rainy Day in Oregon=Chuck E. Cheese

The kids were dying to get out of the house, so we headed to germ infested Chuck E. Cheese! They loved it, of course. Kaden used 35 tokens in 3 minutes. I still think Disneyland is cheaper. What do you get when you add Spring break+ 6 birthday parties going on+ rain (big surprise). You do the math. Kid overload!!

For Grammie & Papa

So here you go! The many sleeping positions Kole has to offer. I took plenty of pictures, but I sifted through for the good ones. I could not give this little guy enough kisses. He's so yummy, and I miss him already. Enjoy!

Ride 'em Cowgirl!

All I have to say is Southwest airlines no longer does preboard for families with children. Try telling that to a mother who stood in the preboard line with two squirmy kids. I'm annoyed, mad, and now I'm off my soap box! Just a word of caution next time you book your dream vacation...beware of Southworst.

Product Endorsment

Okay, I am dying...this product is AMAZING!! If a water softener is not in your budget, and you have hard water, I promise water spots can go away. I am a freak about water spots, especially on the shower door. Yuck! Well, I bought this stuff for my dishwasher and decided to give it a try on my shower door. I have used everything known to man and nothing did the job. Just use 1/4 cup of this stuff with 16oz. of water in a spray bottle, and KAZAM! No kidding, they disappear. I need to be in a commercial or something. You definitely need some kind of a scrub brush to agitate the spots, but I swear by it. If you can't get it to work, I will come to your house and do it for you. They also have a website of other uses. It's called lemishine, and I found it at walmart. It's, and you won't be let down. Happy cleaning.

Our Family Miracle

My big sis had a cute baby boy yesterday. All I have to say is my sister is a CHAMP! There were a few complications, but he finally decided to grace us with his presence. Well worth the wait. Even if it did take him 17 years to get here. He's the luckiest little guy to go home to his 2 big sisters and brother. They better hold him while they can, because Aunty April is coming! I can't wait to meet him. He was 7lbs, 6 oz., and 21 1/2 inches long. I love you sissy!

One year older, but not much bigger!

I think the only thing that grew was her hair. This is so funny! We took this picture at Ali's birthday party. One year later, same stoller, pretty much the same size. She also had her 2 year check-up today. We were all hoping for 20 lbs, but she came up one pound short. Yes, my 2 year old weighs 19 pounds. The doctor is very pleased with her growth. She's following the growth curve, but she's way below it. I'm just happy that she gained anything at all. 3 pounds in 6 months, yesss!

Aliyah's Tinkerbell Party

Here are the pictures from Ali's party. She was loving it! She soaked up all the attention she could get on her birthday. All she wanted to do was sit and eat her front of her Tinkerbell cake. I also made magic wands out of star shaped rice krispy treats dipped in white chocolate with sprinkles. It was a lot of work, but well worth the cute smile she gave me. Aliyah is such a little pixie that I couldn't resist doing the tinkerbell thing.

Our Angel Turns 2!!

I can't believe she's 2! Although most of these pictures hide her sas, her attitude, and her emotional breakdowns, I still have to admit that I can't imagine a single day without her. Happy Birthday Aliyah. We love you more and more everyday.
