It's Official~ I've gone CRAZY!

I've fallen in love with this little kitty! And I really loath cats....well maybe not now. The kids have always wanted one and I have always put my foot down about it. I'm not fond of cats... I think they are gross. But then little Aqua came over one day and stole my heart. She is sooo cute. And the kids just love her too. John isn't so thrilled about it, in fact, he had to feel my forhead yesterday to make sure I was feeling alright when I agreed to keep and take care of this orphan kitty.
Olivia named her Aqua because of her pretty blue eyes! She has always wanted to name a kitty so we pretty much made her year.
So... I'm alittle crazy, but how can you turn away a face like that! :)

Chloe and Macie turn 2!

What can I say~ I'm thrilled that we made it through two years! I have really enjoyed this past year with them. I thought I would never say this, but I don't want them to get older. It's happening too fast for me! They are so fun right now; Chloe is quite the independent spirit, having to do everything for herself and a bit of a bully and then there is Macie, a free spirit, very loving, but very mischievous. I just love them sooo much. It's so wonderful waking up to their smiling faces everyday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY girls, I love you.
And a special note: To my hubby, thank you for being by my side through this adventure, you truly are the BEST!

Celebrating Jayben's 7th Birthday

I cannot believe my baby boy is seven. Wow, time sure is flying by. Today we had a little party for him and it was a lot of fun. We played fun games, but the hit of the party was the marshmallow shooters. John made them from PVC pipe and the kids had tons of fun! It was fun to see Jayben with all his friends from school~his interaction with them. I don't get a lot of opportunity to volunteer in his class at school because I'm home with the twins so I miss seeing him interact with them so I really enjoyed that.
Just a few fun facts about Jayben. He is such a sweet boy~ often times I find him with the twins reading to them or playing with them. You can just tell how much he loves them. His favorite color is green. His favorite food is pizza. His favorite thing to do is play with friends and ride his bike. Jayben is not a morning person and he can sleep just about anywhere. Jayben loves to dance; one time at his uncle's reception he stayed out on the dance floor the entire night. The boy can dance! Jayben is such a joy to have around and I feel so blessed to have him in our family. Happy Birthday bud.
