What a day!!

I know that posts without pictures are no fun!! But I cant upload pictures everyday.

Today was fun for the kids! We walked Cayden to school today. Well Cayden and Kennadi rode their bikes and I pushed the stroller. They always have fun doing it, and I love to watch them. They amaze me. I watch Cayden on his big bike with no training wheels and he impresses me so much. He is really a big kid now. He rides his bike and has no problems. He gets nervous sometimes and just lets himself crash...ha ha but he always catches himself. He has always been a cautious kid. Then there is Kennadi, who scares me so much with how fearless she is. And it shows while she is riding down the street with her training wheeled princess bike. She goes down curbs and tries to go up them, and she goes down hills at full speed and is yelling WEEEEEE the whole way. Ya cayden would die if he started down a hill going that fast. She is crazy! My heart jumps everytime she looks like she is about to tip over, but she just leans up and straightens out. Its so funny to watch how different the kids are. Raised the same, but are completely different. I love these children so much.

It was so funny yesterday when I picked Cayden up from school. Kennadi was with grandma at dance class, so it was just me and the boys going to St. George. Cayden was telling me about his day at school when he told me about him and his little best friend, Connor, at recess. They had decided to run to the tree where the girls were playing. I guess one little girl yelled to them and told them to go away. Cayden yelled back NO to her, and she said "go away or do you wanna be kissed?" cayden replied " I sure do!" and then took off!
I had to laugh so hard at this little story he told me. They way he told me and all the little details he included. It was so funny! I cant believe they are already at it in Kindergarten. Cracks me up. :)

One more thing then I am done for the day :) I look at these big brown eyes that Quaid has, and I just cant believe it!! It may seem like not a big deal, but I have blue eyes, all my siblings and parents have blue eyes, and both of my other kids have blue eyes. It seems to me like all my life I have always looked into other peoples eyes and they have been blue. WIth the exception of cord I guess, and I think thats why I was so attracted to him. I loved the big brown eyes!! Dont get my wrong, I love that my older kids have eyes like me, because thats really all they have from me :) But I am loving these brown eyes on this baby! Its adorable, I cant quit looking into them! Just had to have a post about these brown eyes.

Girls night tonight!!! And its much needed. I am so happy that I have a few people that I can go and do things like this with. I am very thankful for them, especially since I went through a period of time where I really had no close friends to do things like this with. So now I am thankful everyday for these few people in my life :)

Alright I will quit with all the emotions...and go back to cleaning my house!

Thought I would hurry and mention and here pretty soon I am going to be putting my blog as private for many reason! I want to feel safe about the info and pictures I put on here, but I still want friends, family, and even just acquaintances to be able to keep and see what our family is up to :) So, if you want to be able to view the blog, leave me your email address in a comment (if you have already not given it to me on facebook) Thanks!

Also, I am one of those people who love to look at a few certain peoples blogs just because they are so crafty and fun and cute! So if your one of those as well, your invited too :) And thanks for the inspiration!

Valentines day, and Quaids 5 months!!

So, I made it through my week of having cord out of town! And it actually went way better than I thought it would. I got to stay up at night and read in bed, which I LOVE doing but cant do when he is here. So even though I didnt like having him gone, that was something that was kinda fun for a week :) He came home on friday and we had all weekend and monday to just hang out and do what we wanted. To bad it rained and was not good weather all weekend!!

So I thought I would post a picture of my valentines day presents from my great husband! He is so sweet, and surprised me very much this year!!! I love the things he got for me. Including the rose :)

Also, on the 15th by baby boy turned 5 months old!! I cant believe he is this old already. The time has flown by, and been so much fun!! I have loved every minute with all three of my kids, but the third baby is really just so much fun. Everything is more relaxed and we kind of know what to do and expect, so we just get to play and hold onto every second, because I know how fast they fly by!! I love this little brown eyed boy so much! He has brought so much love and joy into our family. I am thankful everyday that I get to hold and squeeze him all day everyday. Being a mommy is so much fun, especially since I have these sweet, wonderful, funny, adorable kids to spend my days with!
Of course while I was trying to get a couple snaps of Quaid on his 5 month old day, Kennadi had to hold him and cuddle him for a while. This little girl loves her baby brother more than I ever expected. And when I pull the camera out (which I should be doing more often) She runs over to take picture with the babe.

Gotta Keep UP!

Just thought I would add a few pictures! Lets face it, I am not so great at keeping the blog updated. But since I never did a post on new years resolutions, I will mention that it is one of them! I really want to be better and taking a few minutes a couple times a week and posting a thing or two. I have also not been on top of loading my pictures from my camera to my computer, so these pictures of just a few of the more recent ones we have!!
Of course, the kids are all growing so fast that its ridiculous! Every day each of them do new things and are just so much fun. They keep me going and they are the reason that everything gets done around here. If it werent for them, I wouldnt clean, because nothing would be messy, and I wouldnt cook, because they are who I am usually cooking for. So they give me purpose :) Which is wonderful!!
SO for now, this is all. I will update soon :)
