It all pretty much speaks for itself. I think our life is too good :) During those times when I'm stressed and angry about the messes and the craziness, I need to step back and remember how truly blessed I am to be the mother to these 5 amazing little kids. My prayers were answered times 10 to have the family I have..... I should never ever be allowed to be ornery.
*Nixon cut his own hair,...and was VERY embarased and ashamed. Nic had to "fix" it that night and Nixon was thinking he was going to get his old hair back, not get more cut off! He cried and cried. We just had to assure him that he was going to look like Chase and Hudson :)
* My kids LOVE to help me cook. I wish I had time to do more of it. It's always a battle of who gets to pour in the next ingredient. Camryn keeps telling me she wants to learn how.
*Kendyl and Nixon have these 2 friends, Gwen & Boston Shirley. The boys are at the same preschool and the girls are both at Legacy. They have become good friends since we started carpooling. We've had lots of playdates and they are all peas in a pod.

Volunteering at the school has gotten harder and harder since I now have a mobile baby and a needy toddler. I love going on field trips with my kids so I decided I'd just have to make it work. It was a little tough being in charge of 6 kids PLUS my babies on a bus ride and a day at the planetarium, but it was a lot of fun. The kids were SO SO nice to little Nixon. He was so happy and pumped all day. I was almost emotional as I watched the 3rd grade girls and boys on the bus giving Nixon high fives and making him feel like he was the coolest kid on the bus. And of course, Camryn and Brooklyn chased Nixon around and helped me tremendously, even though they were on a field trip with their class.
