Happy birthday Bob

Bob just turned the big 42!!! We went out for supper with some friends to our favourite Mexican restaurant....Los Cucos. They sang happy birthday to Bob and then smeared whipped cream in his face. He was really happy about that.
We came home and sang happy birthday and did cake and presents.

Rain rain go away...

Spencer, Sydney and Caden LOVE the rain. Spencer runs around like mad in it and the little ones run around looking up saying "rain" and signing it with big smiles.
Peyton on the other hand HATES the rain. She puts her head down and cries calling "mommy - mommy".

Little minions

This is what I walked in to this morning when I went in to get the "babies" up.
Caden has torn a huge hole in his crib tent now. He can fit out the hole to wreak havoc.
I don't know how Sydney had her crib rail down on one side and crooked.
They were all so proud of themselves. The baby monitor was even disconnected and thrown on the floor again. Before they threw it on the floor they used it to make tons of little dents in the walls and remove the paint in those spots.
Notice the crooked drawers? Bob has fixed them too many times to count now.
I must have done something really bad to deserve this!!!!
I am going to try and sew up the instigators crib tent and see if that helps. lol

Mud bugs

Its crawfish season here in Texas. We had a feast of it today. They are so good too. Its just so much trouble trying to get to the little morsel of meat. What is particularly gross is removing the "poop tube" that is full of poop. After you get around that issue they are really very good.

Sugar and spice and everything nice

Girls are so much fun!! I painted the girls toe nails last night for the first time. They love them too. They keep looking and them and saying "pretty toes". Its just too cute.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day from all of us.
The kids had a ball doing their craft and Caden didn't even mind doing his handprint this time. He HATED it and screamed at Christmas when we tried.

We took the kids to feed the "duckies" today. They LOVE to do that. Of course I think the babies eat more of the bread then they actually let the ducks have.
Then we walked and ran around the pond. The babies all getting so good at staying close and not running away. (at least not too far away)
They pick the dandelions and think they are beautiful.

Going to the zoo zoo zoo

Took the kids to the zoo yesterday to meet Bob after work. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Took us two hours to get there .......... normally a 45 minute trip. It is spring break and I guess EVERYONE had the same idea as me.
We were stuck in traffic and turned the corner only to see about a million or so cars still ahead of us and Spencer comes out with "Jesus Christ Mommy, look at all those cars". Funny, that is just what I was thinking!!!!
We had a great time at the zoo once we finally made it. The kids ate oreo cookies for supper, much better than the sandwiches and fruit that I brought for them.

Well, Caden has figured out how to unzip his crib tent. I put the babies to bed yesterday for their afternoon nap and all I could hear was laughing and yelling and jumping and banging and then the baby monitor was all static. I went upstairs to yell at them and make them go to sleep and I had a hard time opening the door. The problem was clothes......everywhere. Caden had unzipped his crib tent and thrown all the clothes all over the floor. Peyton was his evil accomplice. Sydney was only innocent because she can't reach the dresser from her crib.
He had also taken all the drawers out and they were scattered on the floor. He was quite proud of himself for his accomplishment too.
Today his crib tent is safety pinned shut. Lets see how long it takes him to figure that out.


Bob and I took the kids to the rodeo on Wednesday. A feat worthy of rodeo competitors!! They all did great considering we were out for about 12 hours. Its so nice now that the "babies" are getting a little older. They will actually listen to you SOMETIMES which makes outings much better.
They all loved the animals and the rides. Sydney kept signing and saying chicken all day. Spencer wanted to stay and watch the chicken hatch. Caden loved the petting zoo. Peyton is just like mommy and her favorite was the fried oreos. lol
Spencer really enjoyed the big rides too. His favorite was the water slide with daddy, he was just beaming when he got off. Mommy also got to take him on her favorite ride, the snowball.

Soccer game

Well, Bob survived Spencer's first soccer game all by himself. He took the babies to child watch at the YMCA and even did picture day.
He said that Spencer didn't want to play soccer though.......he wanted to play in child watch. Gotta love kids!

sick and tired

The kids were all sick and I am tired. Peyton and Caden started with the flu and then Spencer and Sydney got it. Poor Spencer got the worst of it with a temperature of 105.9 I got sick and could hardly move on Thursday. It was just more fun than I can describe looking after all the kids while sick.
Everyone seems to be on the mend now.
