Things I love

I love that Ben will Hug you back when you pick him up. There's nothing better then having him wrap his little arms around you and squeeze you back.

I love that Jacob will just come up to me out of no where and tell me "Mommy your the prettiest lady in the world even prettier then the church lady" I'm not sure who the church lady is but I'm prettier then her.

I love that Hailey is so excited to tell me about what she learned in school.

I love that if I've had a busy crazy week I'll come home and my wonderful hubby will have started the laundry for me

I love that Ben will sit in the middle of the floor and hum the tune to twinkle twinkle little star.

I love that Jacob will run up to me and say "mommy you didn't get a morning hug, or and afternoon hug or a night night hug." even though I already did I still take it anyway. a Mommy can never have too many hugs.

I love that Hailey will break into song, and uses it often to express herself just like her daddy.

I love that Ryan will see I'm over whelmed and unload the dishwasher even though its my job.

I love when Ben says "Momma" he sticks his lips out a certain way and looks so cute, and how he says "tant you" when you give him something, and the way he says "ot oh" over and over again

I love that Jacob can identify his numbers from 1-10 so now we can play things like go fish and crazy 8's

I love that Hailey tells me "I have to grow up and can't stop it, but I'll always be your buddy." I'm holding her to that one.

I love that even though we've been together 13 1/2 year (married for 11 1/2) Ryan still tells me several times a day that he loves me.

I love that Ben uses anything with buttons as a phone and yells "Hewwo" into it

I love that after years of fighting with her Hailey has finally decide she can comb her own hair.

I love the Imaginations my big kids have. When I listen to them play I just have to laugh.

Rustlers Rooste

Since this was the girls last night in town mom and dad met us over by the hotel and we went to Rustlers Roost. Good food, good company, good dancing.

The kids got these cool hats. So I made them all put it on so I could get pictures. Jacob didn't feel very good so that's why he looks grouchy in every picture.

I bribed Shell with Money to let me take her picture with it on. I never actually gave her the money but she still loves me anyway.

I wanted Ryan to go dance with me as I love to Country dance and never get too. And Hailey said I'll go dance with you mommy. So Hailey and I went and cut a rug.

Hotel Water Park

As we were waiting for the tram to take us to dinner I snapped some pictures of the girls with my kids. There all so cute.

Ryan's good friend Matt was throwing a birthday party at, so we took the kids and got a Hotel room. We are mean and Ben stayed the night with my parents So we wouldn't have to take him to the water park with us. But he enjoyed playing around to Hotel room with Jacob before dinner. We ended up with a really nice room. We were suppose to have a normal room with a roll away bed for the little kids to sleep, but they were out of roll aways so they ended up giving us a two room sweet with a kitchen. To bad we weren't there longer it would have been nice to enjoy it a little more.

Rock Band Country

So those who know me know I hate rock music and LOVE country music. I bought my hubby rock band for his birthday, and so I few weeks ago he bought me the Country Music version of rock band. Well the girls and I broke it in. It was the great the little kids even got involved.

Ben is addicted to the Wii. He's such a busy baby, but when anyone plays anything on the wii he climbs up on the coach and just sits quietly and watches. We joked that we should just leave it on all the time and then he won't be such a wild man. We even got Ryan to get in on the action.

Hay's first day of 2nd grade

Hailey started the second grade today. It was very hard for me. I'm not sure how it happened that she got so big. I have begged her to stop growing up. But she just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

After I posted this I thought I would add Hailey's pictures of her first Day of past years.

Amazing Jakes

The kids all love going to amazing Jake's. The big kids and the little kids. So we left Benners at home and I took the girls and the little kids and went to Amazing Jake's for the afternoon. Fun times.

Hailey loves the Hopper she rode it like 3 times. I'm not sure what they are riding but they sure look like they're having fun.

Gotta Love the teacups. I'm glad they're big enough to ride with out me. Anything that spins around makes me sick.

While the little kids rode the Carousal. The big girls stood in line forever to get to ride the bumper cars

They rode the train twice because they really wanted to ride in the front but they didn't make it the first time. Like the annoyed look on Hay's face? I had just told her we didn't have time and money to go bowling too so she was mad at me

The have added a mini golf coarse so we played a round. The kids all enjoyed it.

Jacob discovered it was just easier to pick the ball up and throw it then it was to try to hit it. So he played most of the round that way.

We were taking a soda break, and Jacob decided to take a picture of it wow is it bad of all of us.

I didn't have Ben to sling but somehow I still ended up with Hailey baby doll sling on.

I'm not sure what she was pouting about this time.

Mom and Dad met us there and had dinner with us.

Jacob asked for another piece of pizza so I left him with Shell and went to get it. But when I came back this is what I found. Poor baby. He'd played so hard he was just all tuckered out.
