The Tooth Fairy

Sweet Gameboy finally lost a tooth!!! It is so interesting to me how different our kids are. Princess lets her teeth hang on until she looks like Nanny McPhee. She wails and cries and is very relieved when Daddy pulls it out. Not Gameboy…he wants the tooth out and will wiggle it until it is loose. After the tooth fairy came, he pulled his second tooth out which wasn’t loose just to make money. We constantly have to keep reminding him to keep his hands out of his mouth. He sure looks grown up now.IMG_2295

We love you, Gameboy!!!

8 months old

Papa came to visit and took lots of great pictures of us. We had a nice time visiting with him.


Sarah Beth and Sydney Anne have spent lots of time on the floor. DSC_0508

Learning to crawl and playing with toys.


This is really fun, but sometimes it wears us out or we get frustrated.IMG_2279

We are getting teeth and chew on everything! DSC_0521

Sarah is working on her top two teeth and Sydney is working on her bottom two teeth. DSC_0518

End of the year CrAzInEsS!!

The school year is coming to a close and I have mixed emotions.  I looking forward to the relaxed days of summer and not living by a strict schedule, but I am going to miss my quiet time with just the babies.  My role shifts a bit from taxi driver to cruise director and the big kids  have high expectations.   I am not sure how I will measure up this summer, but I often feel torn between all my kids.  I am really trying to schedule lots of breakfasts with my sweetie and lunch dates with friends.  It is much easier to go out with 2 kids instead of 4.  Tomorrow I am using my spa gift certificate before it expires and I need to get my hair colored.  If I think about the summer, I get overwhelmed so I am going to take it one week at a time.  I think some hired help may be necessary too.    5.13                                                                                                                          Our schedules have been jam packed with end of the year madness.  Field days, teacher appreciation week, book fair, daily swim practice and t-ball.  Here’s a picture of Princess presenting her science project Measurement Man to the class.

The babies have been very good through all the craziness and have spent a lot of time in the stroller.5.13e  They really love to go out and see what’s going on. 5.13b 5.13a








But it’s Houston and hot and they are relieved to come home to the air conditioning.  Lately they spend lots of time on the floor.5.13c  5.13d








I hope you all are enjoying your last few weeks before summer.   I know I am.

Little Slugger

Gameboy is playing t-ball again for the 3rd year.  scan0003

I think he looks so cute in his uniform and has grown so much from his first year.

He isn’t playing in the dirt as much and he’s starting to understand the game.scan0004

He still loves to hit the ball and slide.  White pants have been a laundry nightmare. scan0005

We motivate him to run his fastest with a Snickers bar.  He’s kind of  like Po in Kung Fu panda.scan0006

His daddy helps coach the team and he loves hanging out with the boys.scan0007

Go Gameboy!  I can’t believe there are only 2 games left.  We are so proud of you.

Happy Mother’s Day

I am so lucky to have this lady for a mom!! scan0001

Don’t you like our matching haircuts?  My mom took such great care of me and we have a special relationship that is hard to describe.  I have so many fun memories of my childhood with her.  Making monster cookies, driving in the car to all my activities, marathon shopping trips looking for the best bargains and spending time together. scan0002

She is the first person I call with all my good news.  I love to get her opinions when decorating my house or buying clothes.  She has spent countless hours sewing for me.  She listens to me and encourages me.  My prayer is that I can be as good a mother as she has been to me.  I am so blessed.  Happy Mother’s Day Mom!  I love you.
