Morgan tagged me...I'm supposed to name 10 things that bug we go:

1. Not being able to shower until 4 in the afternoon some days.
2. A messy car...I don't know why I can't stay on top of it, but it really grosses me out some days.
3. Paying bills.
4. When my kids are all having a "whiney day" all at the same time. (Patience, Patience, Patience)
5. Not having enough time to spend with my love. We are definitely stretched too thin right now.
6. My food not being hot enough.
7. Gossip.
8. when my feet get rough. (I LOVE pedicures)
9. food that I'm attracted to is so fattening...frustrating!
10. not being in physical shape that I'd like to be. ( I'm really trying now, and I feel so much better)

I tag: Ashlee Raisor, Ashlee Corrigan, Hillari, Cordie, Sunny Winter, Tayli Nelson, Brit Bethers, Jess (My sis), Karen (my sis in law), and Jenn (my cousin)

Happy Happy Birthday Daddy Dear....

Frank's Birthday was yesterday...and we celebrated with our own little family! We had cake and gifts and then we were going to go bowling, but since Frank has to be up at 5 and we were both so tired we decided to save bowling for this weekend. A few things that I love about this pic...Max's cute personally wrapped gift for Daddy-2 of his cars that he wanted to give to Daddy so that they can play! And also the candles...those are the only thing I forgot at the store, so Frank got to be 13 this year!
Happy Birthday Honey...we sure love you and appreciate everything you do for our family!

It was a glorious day last Friday the 9th of January. Samson gets to go to nights only with his brace for his clubfoot. It looks good as new. This first pic is off of my Dad's phone (kinda crappy quality), but it really is the only one that shows his clubfoot pretty good before it was casted. It's the left one with the hospital tag on it. (remember his poor head too) So SAD!

This is him last Friday with Dr. Holmes (Pediatric Orthopedic Specialist) and Sherry the coolest Assistant ever!!! Check out that beautiful and his doctor are AMAZING!

I just love my chunky happy boy!
p.s. he is now 22 pounds.

fun in the SNOW!

We had a lot of fun in the snow the other day. Mary watched the babes and I took the BIG kids out in the snow. Fun Fun!

Cecilia and Emmeline posing by a tree.
Max and Grace...funny little buddies!
I tried to take one of all of us, but Max came and tackled us at the last minute. Little stinker! This is the best I could get.

Thanks for the hot cocoa Mary!
