We had a fun weekend, on Saturday we got a fire pit to put in our backyard. It wasn't the best weather but we made it worked. Next weekend we will be prepared with smores.

My mom's puppy Mia was enjoying herself, she had exausted Meadow and was proud of it.

Ivy picked out a warm outfit... she wanted to wear her "jammy dress" over her pants.

A little gas never hurt in getting things going....

Here are my boys hanging out and eating dinner. Babe,what happened to the fire? More gas?

My husband and I enjoying a nice evening by the fire.

It was very nice, this willl be one of many fires this summer, and you are all invited!!

Happy Birthday!!

Bennett turned eight this last Thursday so we had a party for him this weekend. I can't believe he is that big already.... I remember the first time I met him, it was at the movie theaters and he had just turned five a few weeks before. I was so nervous to meet him! Sean and I had been dating just a couple of weeks and I wanted so bad for Bennett to think I was fun. He was a little shy at first but in the end, Bennett and I have a great relationship and I love him so much!! The past 3 years have been a total blast. I have learned so much from this boy.... I know all about the cool video games, and the ones that are lame; I know how to launch missiles so they will annihilate the opponent's base, and how to make a base that is indestructible, I also know that Spongebob is the funniest cartoon ever! In the 3 years I have known Bennett I have learned that he is a kind-hearted boy and just wants everyone to play and have fun all the time. Well anyways enough with the sentimental stuff, here is what went down this weekend.

We had a party at grandma and grandpa's house with all the aunts, uncles, and cousins. Here are some pictures of his birthday.
Bennett and and Ivy, "you know you love your little sis!"
An "ugly stick" fishing pole, can't wait to go this summer!
An awesome helicopter, team "Bennett and dad" will totally destroy the other guys with this baby!
And of course, dad and Kayli had to get a couple games for the PSP. You can tell by his face he already knows what it is.
Happy Birthday!
Here are the girly girls:)
...and Mykell with her little cousin.
After the party the boys had to show off their collection of weapons....

and here is my husband ....... still pretending he is ready for war. You can see Bennett's legs in the background, he is SO over the war picture posing and is onto is PSP playing. You look REALLY tough babe!

Well, I hope you enjoyed your party little man... you totally crack this family up!! Happy 8th birthday Benjo!!

Another great weekend

I cannot believe Cole is six weeks already!! He is getting sooooo big. And I have started work again, so that is why it has been such a long time since the last post. Working 2 hours a day doesn't seem like it would be a huge change, but it is! My husband, the kids , and I had a really fun night this last Saturday! First we went to Petsmart to get an electric fence for Meadow, our neighbors will appreciate it greatly! Then we have a very nice dinner at McDonalds and got the kids happy meals which had CD's for the prize. As we are driving home we are listening to the kids version of "Take you there" and the kids are just loving it! They are jammin' out with their paper microphones, and Sean and I are thinking, "we never thought we would see the day where, on a Saturday night, we would be listening to kids bop music laughing our heads off and enjoying every minute of it. We then got a movie and I went to the store and bought junk food. This was bad! I never buy candy....... ever, but I bought cookies, Swedish fish, M & Ms, Reisins, popcorn, Root boeer, Sour patch kids, it was ridiculous. We moved the couches around and made our own little "movie theater." A very nice family night it was. Bennett told us all the funny parts of the movie and Ivy was way more interested in the treats. S he couldn't decide what to eat first so she shoved several things in her mouth.

It was a very relaxing, entertaining weekend with the kids, I always look forward to time with my family. Sometimes we get so caught up in all the things we have to do, it is nice sometimes to leave the house unkept and just enjoy the memories you are making :)
