Costumes: Complete

I honestly think this is the earliest I have ever been with the kid's costumes. I'm usually still scrambling a day or so before. I guess if I'm being completely honest I already had Ella and Brynlee's costumes, so I really only had to take care of Kaden. But, hey, it's all finished.

I'll post pictures later. Right now I have a sweet little newborn resting on my chest and I for sure don't want to interrupt that! Love it.

Happy weekend. I'll be hanging out at the Women's Expo... with 3, maybe 4 kids in tow. What's not to love about that?

For the last week I have been...

studying sites like this one and this one. Can you guess who Kaden wants to be for Halloween? Ahhh... a Mother's Love.

Sunday Preview

We'll be blessing little Ella this Sunday.
If you can make it we'd love to see you.

As for the "story"...

it's been 5 days so now I'm hazy on the details (let's blame it on the sleep deprivation).

But let me start and the rest of you can add details in the comments. It'll be like that game you play around the campfire- but in this version we should probably keep it strictly factual.

Once upon a Sunday a boy got up in front of the congregation because no one "his age had been up there for a while." Uhhh.... that's all I got who wants to finish this baby up??

***Ella's 3 weeks today. Can you believe it? Me neither.***

Yay for Church

Words that make for a very entertaining testimony meeting:

"Well, I'm attracted to her"

I was hiding away in the mother's lounge so I had no clue who said this, but you can bet I was on the edge of my rocker waiting to hear what else was to follow. So hilarious.

Lesson Learned

I took all 3 children to the doctor yesterday for well checks. Yes, the block between 1pm and 2pm was all mine! See, there are perks to having all your children born within 3 weeks of each other- like mass doctor visits. Anyway, Kaden asked if he was getting a shot and I said I wasn't sure if he would get a shot or not. He then tells me:

"I hope I get a shot so I can pick out a toy!" {he's a reward motivated child}

Then Brynns pipes up "I want a shock and a toy too!"

Ella was probably thinking the same thing.

The appointments all went well. Our children are healthy and developmentally on track, however disappointment ensued because the only person to walk out of the room with a shot, or shock, was mommy. Ironic, huh. I'm ready for tetanus or whooping cough, so bring it.

Kaden turns 5

and insists he's almost 6.
Someday he'll learn to just enjoy his age.
Could there be a happier boy?
That's what I love about Kaden excitement in everything!

You know you've got a great kid when he doesn't mind letting his little sister help with gifts after she throws a major tantrum.

Oh, Optimus Prime. He hit the Jackpot.

We've got cake pictures and birthday breakfast pictures on Jeremy's camera. I'll post them later.

An easy post since my page is lacking

Thanks to one of my favorite YW who now is married with a baby and a new house on the way {this is making me feel old} I've been tagged.
Seven random or weird facts.

1. I like to dip french fries in milkshakes, preferably Frosties.

2. My hair USED to be straight. It started getting wavy at 15 and gets curlier with every pregnancy.
3. I had Family Home Evening with Elder Bednar while I was at "Ricks".
4. I can't remember anything if it isn't written on my calendar.
5. In high school I drove a pink Ford aspire... yes it was humbling.
6. I'm usually pretty adventurous when it comes to eating, but I can't bring myself to try the sardines that Jeremy loves. I even try to make him eat them outside, but he usually stinks up the whole house by not listening to me.
7. I was a cub scout leader back in the day. Why they put a newly married, working girl, with no children, and who grew up with lots of sisters and only one older brother in charge of a bunch of 8-year old boys I'll never know. But I think we had fun together.

Last Pic

This is the picture the hospital took. I must say they have quite improved the shots since Kaden and Brynns had theirs done. Since this is already on the hospitals website I figured I'd post it here too.
{All pics from here one out will be on the family website, if I ever get around to unloading my camera}

Phone Call

I got a crazy call this morning.

Yeah, it was Ellen DeG reminding me to get my annual mammogram.... what? Thanks, to my brother for that one. However my chest is in enough pain right now that I don't think I need to add one more torture treatment. I always forget how rough the first few weeks of nursing are.
