Another update on Riley and Hayden.

Riley and Hayden are having a great time! They have now been gone for four nights, I was thinking for sure at this point they would be crying and wanting to come home... Nope not the case. I can hear in their voice at times that they are missing us. Grandma and Grandpa are showing them a wonderful time!
Grandma Paula has taken them every where. They even went to the K.C Zoo and walked around for 4 1/2 hours! She did not even take a stroller! They have been swimming, the park and shopping. They are getting to visit with their Aunts that they don't get to see that often.

So the original plan was to pick them up on Friday, but they are having so much fun that Grandma and Grandpa want to take them down to the lake on Friday. So now we will pick them up on Monday. That will be 8 nights away! I just can not believe it. The most they have ever been away from us is two nights.

I sure am missing my little girls. The house seems to have the life sucked out of it! Jason is really missing them when he comes home from work, he is used to them running outside to greet him then rolling around on the floor together! I think it would be much easier if we were not home while they were gone. Like on a vacation so we were busy also. But being home without them here is just weird!

I am just so happy that the girls are having such a wonderful time!! I hope that these are some memory's that they will remember forever! I know that Grandma and Grandpa will!! :-)

Update on girls

I talked with Riley and Hayden today. Well Riley was so excited and having so much fun that she was talking 100 miles per minute! Hayden was going on and on about something I just could not make it out! It sounds like they are having lots and lots of fun! Grandma Paula sounds like she is having the time of her life with them! Plus it's an excuse for her to make chocolate cake and eat it! You know because she made it for the girls. ;-)
I know they are having lots of fun, but still missing them here!
We did go out to eat tonight for Kristen's B-day and it was a great time!!!

Again I want to thank Grandma and Grandpa for giving the girls an amazing time!!!!!! xoxoxoxox

Just one baby for a week.

Let me start this out by saying the last two weeks here at home have been very challenging with Riley and Hayden. I don't know if was them or if I have just been into a mood. So I felt at my wits end many days not knowing what the next day would bring.

Well yesterday Jason's Dad and Step Mom came by to visit us from K.C and out of the blue Paula asked if they could take Riley and Hayden back with them to K.C for the week, of course I said yes! And thought to myself did I really just hear that or am I dreaming. So the girls were all excited to go with Grandma and Grandpa!!!! I really need this break to have some time to spend with just Keegan and the girls needed time away from us.

Now it's so weird because even though the past two weeks have been hard and getting them to bed at night has been rough. I still after putting Keegan to bed last night went outside and started crying. It's very weird not having them around. It makes all the things that were stressing me out before seem so little. I kinda miss the fits they would throw or hearing 100 times we want chocolate milk!!

I am missing them more than ever and find myself just going into their room and looking around. I am going to get the most out of this week and enjoy myself. I know they are having a great time!!! Maybe getting really spoiled!!!

So God must have known that I really needed a break and sent them to my rescue!! So Grandma and Grampy I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking them and showing them a great time!!!

Riley and Hayden I miss you more than you know!!! I miss your smiles in the morning, Hayden I miss that laugh!! I even kinda miss the messes!! Mommy loves you very much and can not wait to see you! :-) (I even turned on Dora this morning so it seemed like you were home)
I hope you guys are having a wonderful time!


The best purchase ever!!!

If you don't already have a set of these they are a MUST!!!
I am talking about the front loader washer and dryer!! We have the LG Tramm set
OMG they are the biggest time saver of anything we have ever owned! I LOVE this set we have had it for about 5 months now and have no complaints! With having a family of 7 I am still able to keep way ahead on laundry. I love the steam wash on the washer your clothes come out so much cleaner. Laundry is no longer an issue around this house.
We always took all of Jason's work clothes to the cleaners because I did not have time to press his stuff well we no longer have to do so. Since the washer has the steam feature they come out looking like they were just pressed! So we are now saving money with this set. Also they use around 50% or something like that less water.

This was one of our best purchases. So if your going back and forth on getting a set stopping thinking about it and do it! You will thank yourself later!!!


Daddy's little helper!

This is one of my favorite pictures of all times!

What ever Jason is doing Keegan is right in the middle of it! He loves helping his Daddy. When I look at pictures like these it makes me fall in Love with Jason all over again!
Jason is such an incredibly awesome Dad! We are all so blessed to have him in our life!

New addition to our family!

We decided to get the kids a kitty. His name is skippy! Very playful kitty and very cute! He has adjusted well with all the kids and has come to realize that he has no control on what they are going to do to him.

He also has bright blue eyes like all the kids except Tiffany.

Attitude mixed with a lot of hair!

I was able to capture the great attitude and hair Riley has going on in the mornings! She is by far not a morning person at all!!!
This chicks hair is so wild in the mornings!

The Pool is finished!

The pool is finished and the kids LOVE it!!! After seeing all of them play it made putting up the pool 100% worth it!! Keegan loves to swim under water!

Proud to announce!

NO WE ARE NOT EXPECTING!! (although there has been many times Jason and I wish we were)

But I am no longer a Minivan driver!!!!!!!!!! Jason went and bought me a Chevy Suburban! It's huge! I LOVE IT!!! The color is Pewter which is one of my favorites! I am so excited about it. The van was wonderful while the kids were still in infant carseats, but the time has come to say good bye!! :)

I have always hated Minivans. I know it seems funny that little me likes to drive a huge vehicle like my new Suburban, but it's so much more comfy for me to drive.

I will post pics soon and also make some more post. I still have not figured out how to get my pictures to flicker. So I have to wait for Jason to do it. And lets just say he has not had a free minute. Between getting a new pool, car shopping and anything we might have been doing things have been CRAZY!!

Oh I found this Koozie the other day that I just started laughing in the store out loud.. It's so perfect for me..
It's says Every great idea I have gets me in trouble!

And I also found one for Jason it says Hold that thought and take it elsewhere! How perfect for him!!
