May 26th

Bennett's last day of school. I cannot believe how fast that school year went. Especially since Christmas. I feel like we were just celebrating Christmas and now the school year is over! We got so lucky this year and got the greatest teacher. We love her so much! It is fun because my very favorite picture of all time was my second grade teacher too, Mrs. Payne.

May 24th

We celebrated my mom's birthday a day early.

The cake was delish.

Her favorite, homemade German Chocolate!

May 23rd

Our first dance recital! Loved every minute of it!

May 17th

My baby's first haircut.

May 16th

We love the balls at The Little Gym!

May 15th

Lining them up! I love watching these kids play. They play and play for hours!

May 14th

Cortland is such a sweet little guy. I am totally in love with him. Every square inch of this fella!

May 13th

Melt my heart.

May 11th

These three love taking baths together.

I will be so sad, when they are too old to do this anymore!

May 10th

I made cookie bouquets for my mom and grandmas!

May 9th

A memorable day for our family!

May 8th

Practing my cookie boquets!

May 7th

Every one loves this thing. Not just Bennett.

May 5th

This little guy is doing so well sitting up. It won't be long before he is crawling all over the place!

May 4th

My sister in law "know's someone" as they say. She know's someone that has some connection with Yankee candles and she gets to go to these sales like twice a year. This year I decided I would take advantage of it. I got 6 candles or so, and as much as I use them, that will not last long enough. I love this smell. I actually love everything pomegranate!

May 3rd

A fun party with the E side.
Bennett lucks out with so many parties every year!

May 2nd

Bennett had his birthday party with friends today. We were going to only have about 10 people, but then I thought what the heck let's invite everyone! We had a good turn out and they had fun!This is our little neighbor girl. She is so cute I can't stand it. She is fun to have around.

May 1st

We like making treats around here. Especially ones that the kids can help make. They loved making these and they were pretty tasty too. They are super easy and I am sure everyone has made them before, but just in case you haven't here is the recipe!
6 cups corn flakes
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1.5 cups peanut butter
1T vanilla

April 27

Gosh, I cannot stand how cute he is. I cannot even glance his way without going over to him and squeezing him like crazy, kissing him like crazy and chewing on those cheeks like there is no tomorrow!

April 25

Happy Birthday my sweet first born.

April 24

The spring fling at Bennett's school is always so fun. The kids LOVE it!

April 23

Grandma taco brought us some twinkies to celebrate my birthday today.

The kids loved it. So fun and thoughtful.

April 22

I seem to never have my own cup. All the kids do and they each drink from their own cups, but every one thinks my cup is a free for all, the community cup.
Not good when you have sick kids running around, or laying around I should say.

April 21

My sweet friend noticed on facebook that I wrote a post on
having sick kids and ended up by saying Calgon!
I didn't even know they made it anymore.
She brought me two boxes with a sweet card.
She has no idea how much that means to me.
You know you don't feel well when SHE sits on the couch and does not move or say a word. I did 16 loads of laundry this day. Fun times around here I tell ya.

It hit Cortland probably the hardest and then Maddox and then Jadeyn. Andy and I had it off and on throughout the two weeks. I think Bennett may have brought it home from school. He had some issues at the beginning of the week and then was fine.
The three middles kiddos on the other are having a really hard time.

April 19

We are just a bunch of sickos around here.

These things have become my best friends lately.

Please oh please let us never have this sickness again.

April 18

Had to give a shout out to B on his birthday.

They were here this year for his birthday.

He loves the camera.
Can you tell!

April 17

He will even share if you would like.

April 16

This boy loves him some oranges. They are the little cutie ones so it makes it easier on mom. This child should have a super great immune system with all the vitamin C he is getting.

April 15

The new table. Jadeyn was down stairs for a long time and
I knew she had to be doing something important.
For sure she was.
She decided all her dollies were hungry and she fed them dinner.
How cute is this.

April 14

Tummy time

April 13

My mom has every other Monday off. It is so nice to have her come over.
This is how she spends a lot of the time while the kids are awake.
They can not get enough of her.
All over her all the time.

April 12

Happy Easter!

April 11

I love these girls. It makes up for not having a sister.

Not only did I get Andy but I got a few sisters in the deal.

{a few meaning 9}

April 10

This picture takes me breath away.

So beautiful.

April 8

Love this one.

April 7

The second grade production of When the Circus comes to town.
I have to say the flame swallower was pretty darn fantastic.
This was so cute


April 6

I love these two boys.

Is there anything better than snuggling with a squishy baby?

I'd say not.

April 3

Our last resort.
This girl stopped twirling right when she got her hair cut
and now she is back at it with a vengence.
It is so sad. Our last alternative is a mitten.

April 2

Craft time is a favorite time in our home.

Safety first.

March 31

I am a little, ah, let's say pleased with my boy. I could not ask for anything better in a son.

March 30

A fifth child never has a dull moment is
never left alone and is loved by all.
Maybe a little too much.

March 29

Uncle Jake comes to visit.

Lots of games, lots of food and lots of fun.

March 28

Love this girl and her hair.

March 27

We have a milk man. And we love him.

March 25

He really likes sweet potatoes. So does jadeyn and maddox.

March 24

We love this game.

It is a regular when the E's are here.

Loves to color. All. the. time.
