I'm back in bussiness

I have had a great and very busy August, unfortunately that means I haven't blogged like I would like to. I plan on writing a lot more now that things are calmed down. I look forward to writing down all the great things that I have seen and done this summer. I also took some great pictures(too few of them). I hope no one is too mad for my lack of content over the month of August. I promise September will be full of great posts, starting with a baby picture themed blog hop!

sick baby, cranky husband, crazy

Josh started working nights on Sunday and it's been a rough transition. We get less time together even though he's home, I have to try to keep the kids quiet, and the worse part of all is he has been REALLY cranky. He probably doesn't even realize it, but I have to try really hard not to be offended by the lack of conversation and signs of affection. I do look forward to Labor Day, that is when he should be on a normal schedule again. We also get a week long break from it starting the 23rd. We're taking the kids on their first camping trip.

On top of the cranky husband I have a sick little girl. She's been pretty pitiful for the last few days. She has thrown up once or twice each day and just sits around half asleep all day, not playing or even crying. This morning she fell asleep in the most uncomfortable looking position(see picture on left). I hope the doctor can give us some insight on how to help her.

The boys are the same as ever, full of energy, hungry, and messy. Logan is excited because he found his Tag pen and Mommy put new batteries in his leapster, but he still doesn't stay put for too long. Mommy doesn't sleep well without daddy, but I still manage to keep up with them and keep them quiet enough that Daddy can sleep. It's hard to get a moment to do anything. My house is destroyed, but instead of cleaning it, I took my spare moment to write this. You're welcome :)

Things around here are crazy, but I still feel like the luckiest woman in the world. I don't want to take any of this for granted. Even the tough times are a gift that I need to cherish. Thank you Lord for the crazy days that help us to appreciate the little things that we are given.

blog hop

I know I haven't posted anything in a while. That was because Mandy and her kids were here for a week. They left this morning. I will miss them, but the visit was such a success that I know they'll come back. I just wish that we could have raised more money to help them pay for the plane tickets. There are only a few more days left in the fund raiser, so if you have a few dollars to spare, please help out!
This weeks blog hop is FAVORITE PHOTOS. I decided to post some of my favorite pics that I took from Mandy's visit, there are quite a few great ones that other people took that I will post when they get them to me. I know there are some great pictures of the boys playing together on Al or Mandy's cameras. I didn't get any of those(I have a bad habit of forgetting to take pictures).

I love pics of the girls together. In the first one they are deciding who is going to grab the bottle.
In the second one Madi is imitating Natalie as she cries and Nat does NOT like her impression.

They are going to KILL me for posting this pic, but I love it. It's a good representation of how goofy and fun we are when the 3 of us hang out. Good times!

Happy blog hop everyone!

Mandy's here!

Mandy, Johnny, and Natalie got here yesterday afternoon! I'm so excited they are here. We still have a long way to go before we can refund the money for the plane tickets though. We still need your help! I will post pictures and info about their visit so far tomorrow, thanks to everyone who is willing to give a few dollars to a great family.
