Stacey (my best friend) and I took a break and went to Chicago for a week (well almost a week). We had a fun time! I will have to post in stages to get it all in. So this is day one!!!She is super happy to be getting out of town!! We left super early and arrived at 11am. And we were HUNGRY! So Aunt Jan (that's Stacey's aunt but she has been mine since I 1st went up there 12 years ago!) took us to a super yummy burger place called Village something arather. Then we got to her house and dropped our stuff off and headed into town.

We went to a store kind of like trader joes only it was HUGE and cheap. We got dinner there. Then we went to Tom's Farm Market. We got some Pumpkin donuts that were to die for! OH my goodness. I LOVE pumpkin stuff.
They had these blue pumpkin that were more of an off whiteish color. But it was fun. This is Stacey showing the "blue pumpkin"

This is us being!

Stacey was helping her self to this pumpkin baby!

Our cute little happy family! (don't you love the tree)

Next up is our shopping and brat trip. That's right I ate a brat and Will was so mad he wasn't there to see it.......

Happy birthday baby girl!

Today my sweet baby girl is 6! I can't believe how fast it has gone by! She is in Kinder and loving it. She has gotten sassier (is that a word and even possible?) But she is wonderful and we LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE her! On her 1st b-day! She ate so much cake that she threw up! The girl LOVES cake. In fact she loves sweets. She has a sweet tooth like her mama. (I need to make a call to her Mama cause she is also sassy, cranky, oppinated, bossy....JUST LIKE HER MAMA;) ) LOVE this one of her! She is also super girly JUST LIKE HER MAMA!

She is loves to be on stage (umm. just like her mama!) This was taken after her 1st play

And here she is with her mama!! :) I think she looks like me (her mama!)

Even if she is a little hard to handle at times she is super loving and so much fun to have around. She is very helpful with the little boys. And Bob loves playing with her. (they will play "mom and dad" or "puppy" all day or until Bob can't take her bossing him again!)

Kenzie brings so much spunk to our family and we Love every second of it!!

-Happy 6th birthday baby girl! We love you very much and can't wait to see all the fun things you have in store for us!-

10 years worth of stuff!

I have 1 day left in my 20's. I can't believe it! It seems like just yesterday I was turning 19 or even 25 (I cried that day). So it's really hard to believe that I will be 30! 30?!?!!? just doesn't sound right. So I asked myself what the heck happened to the last 10 years? So here is what I have done in my 20's (I list them mostly so I feel better about leaving them)

I married the BEST man ever!

Had 4 babies

Helped and supported my husband with two businesses.

Found out I have a seizure disorder

Gained and lost a LOT of weight (I would put it all down but NO thanks!)

Gone on LOTS of trips and vacations

Moved 9 times. (I HATE moving)

Finally stopped bitting my nails (this is a new thing in the last few months. Hope it stays!)

I have lost and gained friends

Still have the same best friend from High school

Tried to grow my hair out many times only to get bored and cut it

Become an auntie to 11

Cleaned up more puke then I can count

Wiped away many tears

Stayed up all night with sick babies

Changed more diapers then I ever thought I would

Learned to sew

Learned to scrapbook better

gave birth without drugs (something I NEVER thought I would do)

went 6 years without a cell phone (I only have one now cause the kids are in school and they school may need to call me. I don't even know the number:) )

Learned to cook, kind of still working on it

Planned 18 birthday parties and many other parties. I LOVE parties

Learned to can and I actually like it

Potty trained 3 kids

Starting to enjoy working out

Learned to live for the small things

cuddled some sweet babies when they couldn't sleep or a sweet little girl who had a friend move away so she cried herself to sleep (I can see this happening a lot later on with BIGGER things)

Stayed overnight in the hospital

Joined the PTA (kind of weird)

Also I am on the site counsil

Thinking back on the last 10 year I say I have done a lot and can't believe I fit that much in. I am sure I am missing a lot. I guess I am kind of excited to see what the next 10 years have in store for me. I hope maybe a baby or two. Maybe even one more move (and not in Tucson!) maybe....We shall see together...So ready or not 30 here I come!

Bob is 3!

On Sept 28 Bob turned 3!! And he is super excited to be 3.

He weighs 29 pounds (25%)

and is in the 5% of height (not a shock)

The kid is on the go all day! If he sits still for just a minute or two he will fall asleep (I have pictures of him sleeping in all kinds of weird spots around the house)

He follows me around all day and LOVES to help with laundry and mopping

When the car didn't start he asked "why isn't the car loading?" It was super cute and we told him and car is not like a movie it doesn't load it starts

Favorite movies are Rio, Yogi bear, and anything Mickey Mouse

Favorite Charactor is Mickey Mouse

Favorite toys are trains, legos, cars, and dress up clothes (that his sister puts on him)

Favorite Food "mango ball" Mac and cheese (he calls footballs mango balls and so he calls velveta mac and cheese that), yogurt, granola, peanut butter sandwiches, and protein shakes

Favorite animal is a monkey

He loves "stinky truck" which is the trash man and so Tuesday is his favorite day cause it's trash day

He tell Will "Daddy you're my best friend" anytime he wants something cause he knows he will get it if he say that

He thinks he needs a paci still and will tell us he "just needs a taste of Henry's"

We have had to go to the ER 3 times this year. 2 times for a cut on the head to super glue shut and once cause he tried to pick up a scorpion. (I think I lost a few years and that is why I found one grey hair!)

Bob is such a sweet boy and is quick to say sorry. He doesn't like to hurt your feelings and will try to fix the wrong ASAP. He loves his brothers and sister and will let Kenzie put any kind of dress up on she wants. He will also play any silly game she comes up with. But if she gets too bossy he will let her know and he'll start yelling. So don't cross him! He comes in our bed almost every night (I know I said I won't do it but the kid won't stay in after 3am) He is so much fun to be around and I love him so much. I am so glad to be his mommy! I still can't believe how silly and funny he is at such a young age. Can't wait to see what's next with this little guy.
