I have no excuse for not updating the blog other than life is busy...sorry Kay and Patti!
Ruby had a sleepover with her besties; Claire, Izzy, and Zoe. Oh the things I learned that night! I can not believe that 6 year olds are boy crazy already!?! Ruby assured me she didn't have a boyfriend. I assured her she should keep it that way until she is 20!
There was more glitter, barbies, and bows that night to last me for a while. They are all 110% girly girls! Screaming and all ;)
Ruby had her first concert. It was adorable!
This speaks volumes of the kid that Parker is. He is definitely where the party is at that is for sure! We have been playing baseball. They found all my catchers gear and gloves from the olden days and wanted me to teach them how to play. Parker can hit the ball being pitched to, throw, and catch! And........he is a lefty! Ruby and Phoenix are pretty good also. Phoenix has a wicked arm and coordination. Ruby is going to be the home run queen! Piper and Boston well, they are picking flowers in the outfield ;) They prefer to be the cheerleaders on the side! Everyone has their own talents right!?!
We celebrated Garrett's 3rd birthday!
SO.MANY.KIDS! There are 3 sets of multiples in this bunch!
We have played with lots of chalk and bubbles!
Piper is doing so well! Her personality has really started to come out and good lord does she have one! She is a jibber jabber queen and she has mastered the art of ignoring you when she doesn't want to do something you ask. She is such a sweet heart though and the master at picking toys up! Good lord the boys need to be thankful to the girls for picking up their slack!
Tis the season for graduation parties and birthday's! Nothing like sugar every.single.day on the weekend!
Mother's Day we spent at the zoo with Grandma Lulu and then met friends there as well.
Boston loves taking pictures with the 'me camera'. When he can see himself in the view finder on my phone. He thinks it is pretty neat it is pretty much a nightly request from him! He is a little spark plug! He is like a little ninja when it comes to sneaking sugar and treats! He can get in and out of the candy drawer in 0.2! I caught him the other day and he said 'but mommy you just weren't supposed to be looking!'. Little turd!
Parker is my little hemorrhoid epically in public he does not go to far from my side without having a mental breakdown!
We went to the farmers market this past weekend to see our friend Miss Rachel and get some goodies from her! The kids were worn out by the time we got there so I should have known the first trip of the season wasn't going to be all rainbows and piggy tails. We made it through, barely, but when we got to the car Boston had a stage 10 meltdown and we went straight home vs. doing the 972 things I had to do that day. That is the way the cookie crumbles though with 5 littles. So for everyone that always says 'your kids are so well behaved'. Thank you and they are for the MOST part but they definitely have their special moments. I should have video recorded it he was one hot tamale! They are learning though and I still stand by it is much easier with these 5 then it was with the 3 boys prior to the girls homecoming.
Ruby and I got our nails did. She got a mani and pedi and I got a pedi. I think this may have aided to her girlish ways a little to much-she asked almost every day if we can go back.
Phoenix is a womanizer! You should see him around the ladies holy cow he is such a show off! We were walking into the school the other day and there were 5 middle school girls walking past us and he just looked at him and batted his eyes and said 'hey ladies'. He gets them too they always gush and tell him how adorable he is! Creating a monster I tell you!
We have our favorite park in Ankeny that I take the kidlets to a couple times a week
And....I will leave you with little red hankie poo. I was baking a massive amount of cookies the other day and Phoenix put this on Hank and said 'mommy hank wants to steal all the cookies like little red riding hood!'
