Mother's Day Flowers...


So Saturday we went to a Beautiful Flower Garden... Each Kid was going to pick one flower for me and we were going to make the most beautiful bouquet. This year we were told we could not pick but we could walk around and enjoy the flowers... While I was walking around and watching the kids play and run away from the sweet dog I thought about my mom and how much she would LOVE these flowers. I started to take pics of all of the pretty ones and decided I would make her a flower book. Cuz she LOVES flowers:) When we left with out flowers in our laps my kids expressed how sad they were to not have picked me any flowers. Just knowing that made my heart beam! I am sure every mother thinks this but I am so blessed and LUCKY to have such sweet and thoughtful kids. They are seriously my Life's TREASURES.

Even Sweet Lily cheered Logan on!

april 2015 update

The kids are in love with Lily... Londyn will never let her cry. or not be held. She always screams "Li....Leeee!" while holding her. And the other day Lincoln was holding her and I heard him tell Lauryn that Lily is going to be famous one day. And Lauryn said... Yea... she is." I told them I didn't want her to be famous.I just wanted her to be a good girl and Lincoln said..."mom she's going to be a good girl, but shes going to be famous cuz she's so beautiful. LOL! So sweet! Last week she turned 6 months.

So Louie is 3... he has been 3 for a couple of weeks... Every day he gets better. Kinder and his temper tantrums are getting easier. He keeps looking big to me. He is so sweet when he is not mad. And Lately Louie is looking so grown up to me. Makes me sad. Time gets faster and faster...

Londyn's favorite saying these days. "Is there anything I can do for you?" She takes after her Big sister and is a great cleaner. She really Loves her friends. Reese, Avaley, Mary, Rachel and of coarse Louie. Shes transitioning to always wanting to be with me to wanting to have more play dates. She's also alot more spunkier lately.

Lincoln is Lincoln. FUN. Thinks he can take on his big brother Logan and doesn't understand why he has to help clean. He also really wants to play baseball. I need to make sure to sign up in the fall.

Lauryn is growing up so fast too. she's taking sewing class from holly. and still is in love with her violin. she comes home every day talking about all of the drama the girls are in her class. shes funny. 

Logan... all about his friends these days. Airsoft and wanting to get a phone. doing well in his boyscouts and is doing really well in cleaning the kitchen and doing yard work.  I signed all 3 up in the summer triathalon excited to see them work hard.

Michael... works hard. HE sure loves his family.So grateful he is ours. 

Me... Im still at my top pregnancy weight and baby is not much of a baby...  I have about 60 lbs to get down to prebaby  like before Logan weight and it doesn't sound fun. 

Starting my running goals today. Goal mwf 1 mile. I miss Kayla. We were slow together. We ran like elephants. We laughed hard.  We got each other. Now it's going to be me trying to dig deep. Ps. She just had a baby and is starting to run again. Proud of her. 

I'll stop rambling. On my next post going to blog my running goals etc.

Lily is 6 months!

Can you believe our Little sweet heart is 6 months!!! She is our little mini crawler! She sits up strong and loves to chew on her toys. She LOVES to SMILE! She makes everyone happy just by her sweet baby breath and smiles. SHE LOVES HER MAMMA!! Will only sleep when I am holding her and she wants to be held all day and all night. I don't mind she's the sweetest... she kindof likes rice cereal... will not take a binki anymore or a bottle... The KIDS fight over her. THEY all want to hold her and they all want to be the first to wake her up. She's so sweet and so perfect for us. We love you Miss Sweet Lily Mae.

Louie's 3rd Birthday

We celebrated Louie's Birthday by 1st Michael and I took him to build a bear. JUST HIM and Lily. He got an elephant and was funny. I think he felt a little awkward. He kept telling us to "Shhhh!" every time we would talk to him:) He was cute he kept finding things that his Na-Nee would Like. He  LOVES Londyn. For his birthday we went to the Gentry zoo. It was fun. Michael was sick so he was sitting in the passenger side and I drove around the zoo with Louie in my lap. All the kids had a lot of fun. All of us were scared when the animals would get so close. Linkie even cried! lol!

Louie LOVES Londyn! They play so well and he always wants her to be near. His favorite food is spaghetti, hotdogs, bananas, and tangerines. He loves ELEPHANTS! Loves his animals that he plays with all day! Loves Wat-Wat. Loves dancing. Loves saying... "Oh Tuttles!" Loves all types of Candy. He still drinks with his bottles and sleeps with his brothers. He is still in Diapers... He is our Head Strong boy. He has practically destroyed our home with all of his art work on the walls. SIGH! He is our big heart little guy that never lets anyone be mean to Londyn. Its really cute and funny to me that he loves her so much... We sure love you little buddy. We love your puppy hair and your tight hugs. We will not miss your Temper Tantrums... your bites, your hits and your screams... I think this year will be alot better. We love you buddy!
