3 Little Mokeys Jumpin on the Bed

There's nobuddy like a brother!
Pay calls them his little buddies, too cute.

Gettin Crafty!

So with Aaron being gone and leaving us a lot of time on our hands, yeah right, we have decided to get crafty. The kids slept at Aaron's mom's house and my mom and I had a craft night. We made some pillows, flip flops, some cute pictures to hang in the kids rooms, painted Haylee's bedroom furniture, and I made all four of the kids journals. I still have some more stuff to finish too. I found 3 old trunks at the DI that I need to clean up and put to use, we are in dire need of extra storage. I also have some vinyl to have made and put to use. The kids have really enjoyed the crafts, Haylee has really gotten into scrapbooking and all that jazz, and she is really enjoying her room. By the way not all of that stuff was done in one night but within the last month and a half.

So not a whole lot has been going on at our house. We are officially home now, we have moved back in and are no longer staying at my mom's. It has been nice but stressful at the same time. The kids are still doing gymnastics and they still love it. They are getting really good at alot of stuff, their teachers are amazing with them. It is really cute too, I thought that they would be a little competitive, like their parents, but they have been really good and encourage eachother. I love it I think I will keep Payton in during the school year and Haylee will go back to ballet. Aaron is supposed to be home around Thanksgiving, but we found out that he will be back in the states by the end of Aug and home to stay by the end of Sept, which is very exciting. I am really excited and a little nervous at the same time. It will be challenging but very worth it. We are playing around with the idea of moving to Idaho, there is a security job up there that he is looking at, but we are also looking into church security and some other stuff out here too. It will be interesting either way. But I am looking forward to having him home and getting settled in to family life again. I'm not telling the kids, I am going to surprise them, if Aaron will go along with me. But that is it for now, we are pretty boring people!

Payton discovred his first loose tooth yesterday, he is so excited. We were driving home and turns over to Haylee and says "Thanks for punching me in the mouth, no my tooth is loose." He meant it too, itwasnt sarcasm. He is excited to lose a tooth, he is too funny. I hate it they are growing up so fast.

Happy Birthday McCoy!!!

Tomorrow is McCoy's birthday, he is already 2, I can't believe it! We had his party tonight and I think it was pretty fun. We went over to the little park behind La Frontera and had dinner and cake, and just let the kids play while we sat around and talked. My sister took pictures and I will post them when I get them. Thanks to everyone that came and made it special, thank you for all the cute toys and clothes. We appreciate it and we love you all! Sorry it was such short notice, we'll be more organized next time.

Here is this week in a nutshell. It went by very quickly, we did the same old same old. I found that I the milk blister is gone and has been replaced with thrush, so far Emmet doesnt have it. So I am trying to get rid of that with a cream and an herb, I am praying it works as planned. But for right now nursing is killing me but I am trying to endure and get through it. Wednesday we went to the zoo, the 1st through the 3rd is military appreciation so we go and get in for free. It was fun I took my sister and her daughter and my other sister Madi with us, we got there right as it opened and was done by lunch. It worked out great because we beat the heat. We went to gymnastics yesterday, they love it. I am so glad that I signed them up for the summer, I think it will be really good for them. Today McCoy has been throwing up all day. Emmet has been crying all day and I have a massive headache. It has been interesting today. Haylee and Payton did get to go to the ten for ten movie and got to see Up. They loved it!! While they were there the babies and I went to the DI and found some awesome stuff. This weekend will go by quickly also, it's the 4th, I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend. I hope we dont bore everyone to death.
