Brad went in to get Millie and this is what he found.... She was just chillin with her foot kicked up on the side of her bassinet on her back! She sleeps on her stomach and now she rolls over and then can't get back to fall asleep, so she just hangs out and talks until someone comes for her!! Funny girl! Looks like it is officially time for her crib! She looks huge in there these days!


Summer is finally showing it's pretty little face!
Millie had her first pool experience! She liked it!
Jake pointing to the big slide that he went on over and over again... Too scary for me.

Summer fun!

It finally feels like summer! Today we went over to my sister's... I cleaned for her while the boys jumped on the tramp with sprinklers, played in the baby pool, and picked cherries until we had so many we didn't know what to do.... So we decided to sell them! They could not pick them fast enough! People were loving it! I told the boys they could spend their earnings on whatever they wanted but they chose to save it, and with a pile of money they are off to a great start! Good boys!!!
(Thanks Tiff! Your cut of it is a clean house when you get back from your trip!)

I told the kids that I would use their beautiful artwork in our house somewhere... We have a small wall in our house that the only way you see it is if you are walking out of one of their rooms, so what better place? I mean I love it and all but I don't really want to display it in our family room ya know! The kids loved it!


The kids are all very lucky to have such a great Dad! I love you Brad! Happy father's day!
We all love the famous secret family chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, and we use any holiday as an excuse to make it! YUMMY!!!

I stumbled upon these in the store today... They are pretty good. They taste a lot like regular chocolate but with a tiny coconut... I would even like more coconut flavor!

Jake finally let me take a picture.... It looks a lot better for sure!


Another rainy day....... The kids loved the wood letters I did for Millie.. So much in fact that they wanted to do some of their own!
I also let Jake and Xander make cookies all by themselves.. Not so pretty but pretty tasty!

Something funny!

Jake looked in the mirror this morning... And with the swelling moving around, now through his eyebrows and eye lids asked if he could wear a bag over his head today! I laughed so hard I snorted... He is starting to be one funny boy!! He WILL NOT let me take a picture of him, he told me "NO, you will just put it on your blog!" I will try and capture one, maybe while he sleeps?

Jake has been looking forward to his end of year field trip for several weeks now, they were going to a park with a huge new playground and water area. The plan was to go from 9 to noon, at 9:25 I got a call from Jake's teacher telling me Jake was hurt... My heart started to pound. She said he had slipped and fell, hit his nose, it was bleeding and that she thought Jake's nose was broken. I was in my pajama's and had just put Millie down for a nap, I quickly threw on some clothes, grabbed her out of her bed, and drove down to get him.
I got there and his teacher was holding him on a blanket with an ice-pack on his face, he looked delirious. I gathered him and his things and left for the hospital. I called his doctor to see what I should do and her nurse told me to come see them first so they could look at him first and then decide what to do. I got there and waited and waited, Jake kept falling asleep and snoring. I was starting to get more and more worried, every time I asked him something he said "I don't remember."
After we had spent an hour waiting the doctor finally came in and asked what happened, we told her and she was like "you need to go to the hospital now." She said that anytime there is a head trauma like that you need to head to the hospital. Would have been nice to know before we waited that long:(
So we immediately went over to primary children's hospital. Oooohhhh boy, the hospital might have been scarier then his nose. They made us sanitize our hands and wear masks to even enter.
Anyways, the doctor said she wanted to watch him for a little while because she said he had a concussion on top of the nose issue and he kept complaining that his stomach hurt so she wanted him to drink some fluids and make sure he could keep them down. She did not think his nose was broken but it is really swollen still so tomorrow when the swelling has gone down we will need to look at it again to make sure. Poor Jake. By this time it was 3:00 and the poor boy had not eaten since breakfast. I told him we could stop and get whatever he wanted, he chose sushi. So we got hotel for dogs and sushi and we are going to take the rest of the day and night easy.
I must say... Seeing all of those sick kids and primary children's makes you thank your lucky stars for healthy happy kids. So very sad.
