Baby Smiles

I was lucky to get the few pics I did of Greyson smiling. I swear he sees the camera coming and turns the smiles off on purpose.

Karis had her kindergarten eye screening bright and early this morning.
She did great!

Morocco turned 13 this month!
He loves having the front door open and being able to sleep in the sun.

It was a...

Monical's type of day.

Monical's pizza is a family favorite!

5 weeks 1 day

Happy 7th Birthday, Brennan James Wayne!

We kept it low key today, since his birthday party is tomorrow afternoon with friends. He got to choose dinner which turned out to be Culvers. Yum!

It was warm enough to ship the kids outside after school! Love it! I'm sure the nice weather won't last long, but we'll take what we can get.

Dear Neighbors....

I got my hopes up a few days ago and thought you were moving. Instead you decided to put a bunch of crap right in front of your house (which is my living room view) and leave it there. Please do something about the toilet. It really disturbs me and I'm not quite sure what your intentions are.....

Couldn't you just eat him up?

This little guy LOVES sink time! (Aka Bath time)
More than anything he likes to be cuddled up in the towel afterwards.

My Poor Baby Girl

Ryanne's breathing is much much better today, but you can tell she still feels quite miserable.

Visit from Dubuque!

We had friends visit from Dubuque today. It's always great to get together and we don't get to do it as often as we'd like. The girls still outnumber the boys big time even with out newest addition.

The day turned crazy when Ryanne woke up from a nap and was having an awful time breathing. I ended up taking her to the ER where she was diagnosed with croup. Poor thing!

Karis & Ryanne love Erin! The feeling is mutual!
Next time we're together, we'll get a picture of all 10 kids!

Cloth Diapers

We've ventured into cloth diapers. Some might think I'm crazy and I just might be willing to agree at times, but it's actually much easier than I thought it would be. I am still using disposables when I am out of the house for long periods of time and overnights, but think that will end soon and we'll be doing all cloth. I'm actually waiting for a package of cloth diapers to arrive and we'll be set with our stash.

Laura at LoveEarth.LoveCloth made the Very Hungry Caterpillar diaper. We also have her making a batman diaper as well. Go Figure! She has a shop on Hyena Cart and will be doing her first stocking on April 14th!

Cloth diapers are soooo much different than they were way back when my mom used them with me. Heck, that was 33 years ago and she's got some horror stories to tell anyone who will listen.

Sink Time!

Greyson tolerates bath time a lot better than his 2 older sisters ever did.

Happy Birthday To Me......

I've got 6 of the greatest presents ever!

I do it!

Much easier when you have two puppies willing to clean up any messes than at a restaurant.... She's still pretty proud of herself though.

Road Trip!

We jumped in the car and headed down state to visit family for the weekend. The kids love spending time with their grandparents and cousins.

Greyson did great in the car until the last 30 minutes on the way home. Then he let it be known that he was tired of being in his seat and in the car and wanted to be home!
