Isn't it ironic?

On the same day I came out of my room to this...



(All because I'm feeding Drew in my room when the girls get up and their Dad leaves before I'm done, they are hungry and apparently can't wait for Drew to be done eating)

I took Maddie, Kellyn, and Drew to the grocery store. An older couple was near us as I was sacking up the groceries. I loaded up the car and I took the cart back. The lady from the couple stopped me and said "Your children are marvelous. I had 5 and could never take them anywhere cause they didn't behave well." I didn't have the heart to tell her what I came out to this morning, or how Kellyn literally screamed the entire time we were at the vet yesterday cause she's scared of our dog, or dumped Maddie's potty out all over the floor. (Probably time for some made up fairy to take that thing away since she can go in the big toilet)
I guess on the bright side of things at least when we are out in public they obey and behave well. Different story at home these days....or I need something to occupy them while I'm feeding Drew!




Hi-ho, hi-ho.....

Well this guy is 9 weeks tomorrow...















Don't you love his faces??? So I guess it's about that time for me to go back to work. But great news, I took a job Friday that is a long term project (years) that I will be able to do 100% from home. So after my parents were so great to keep our older kids for most of last week, the 3 younger ones and I are back for this week. I need to do a little training just to make sure I do things how they like and then I'll be good to go. This is such a huge blessing since childcare in Newkirk isn't a lot of options, but I also still get to work from home. Maddie will just be happy cause it's less time I'm telling her to pick up all day! So God really scored a slam dunk on that one, we are so incredibly blessed!

Kellyn is 2!

Kellyn turned 2 last week! I can't believe she is already that old. We had a nice time at the playground and then just a little cake and ice cream at home! She did pretty good blowing out her candles. If you ask her how old she is she'll say 2....in her quietest voice!













Cooper's 6th Birthday

In the midst of playoffs our little boy turned 6! I can't believe I have a 6 year old. We had a little birthday party for him last Sunday, he wanted a Planes birthday, so just a friend, his sisters, and grandparents. It was a fine time had by all. We built and decorated planes, did Pilot's Licenses, had races, and target practice! Overall I think he had a good one!









District Champs!

Well it's bittersweet around the house cause basketball is over. We were hoping for at least one more weekend, but with a record of 14-11, the boys had the best season they've had since we've been in Newkirk. They won 1st Place at the Frontier tourney, 2nd Place at Ripley, 4th Place at Glencoe, had a 6 game winning streak toward the end including beating Pawnee (which is a huge deal); capped it off with a win for District Champs against #6 Sperry at Sperry. So that was a great year for all of them. I am especially sad because the Seniors that we are losing. Those boys moms and I have become very close, although they may not be in my stage of life, I always enjoy being with them, doing things for the boys, and most importantly the loving they give my kiddos! One will be sticking around cause she has a sophomore, one will take a year off cause her next one is just in 8th grade, and one will be gone, cause this Senior is her baby. (But she offered babysitting for my kids next year!) I think all the parents were pretty happy with how things went this year, there were so many great moments! So for now we'll look forward to what next year holds!

Valentine's Day

Well I may have almost forgot Cooper would need Valentine's for his class, but found some great lego inspiration on Pinterest and Pinkitzel had the candy in stock...so he took these babies to school!



He also felt we all needed to come to his little party at school....



While he was at school the girls and I made Dad a treat for him after his game....cause Valentine's day on a Friday in Feb means a basketball game!



The kids and I headed on to Edmond and we spent the evening with the Stevens girls, their Dad had to work too!









And we wrapped up Valentine's day with a family outing to Beauty and the Beast, all the kids did great!









The Belle dress made Kellyn look so old! It wasn't really in the plans for the 2 little ones to join us, but that's what happened! Hope everyone else had a great Valentine's day....now it's back to basketball! Playoffs start this weekend and I for one have some high hopes! So keep those fingers crossed!

We all survived!

Well my mom has been gone a week and we are all still alive, tired but alive! We went to 2 basketball games with the help of some great moms, made a day trip to Edmond for Drew's 2 week checkup, and slept some! At Drew's checkup we ran into a little problem, his bell didn't fall off. So while I was just waiting for it all to come off; it wasn't going to happen. The perks of going to your uncle is when he isn't sure he has another doc and urologist come to look. After a quick consult with a ped urologist they tried to cut the string, but it still didn't come off. So we were sent to the ped urologist at Children's, which lucky me my aunt took time out of her day to be with us. She has an office in the same building. So they had to use a ring cutter to cut off the plastic of the bell that remained. He is healing just fine now! We go back Wednesday for a checkup just to make sure things are good to go! So that was a little stressful, but all worked out fine! Here are a few pics from the past week!
