Rodeo Time!

View Album

Down here in Texas, it is a prerequisite to go the the Rodeo at least once every couple of years or they will kick you out!  This year we     went  early and spent a day with grandma!

Movies only a parent could love...and hopefully you too.

Maybe at your lunch at the office or when you're trying to dodge a meeting and have some time to kill, you can check out some movies.  I have edited some photos and movie clips with music (sometime that is the best part so make sure you can hear it)  

I know that some are the type as they say only a parent can love, but we sure do love them so just humor us.  They shouldn't be too bad.  

Say hello to our 5 little monkeys!

For some of our friends, and even more unfortunately,  for some of our family it has been too long since we have been in touch.  That said, I'm sure we have a lot of catching up to do including the introduction or the re-introduction of our short stuffs. 

Benjamin as the oldest is now four years old and reserves the right and sole responsibility of picking on his sisters, and will ward off anyone else who tries.  He sure takes good care of them.  

Then the twins, Aubrey and Claire are going to be three in April.  As two, they hold their own together and yet have very separate attitudes, likes and dislikes.  

Almost a year ago Julia joined forces with the girls and left Benjamin and I to stick together as the only manly men in the house.  

We are now expecting one more.  Yes we checked twice to make sure it was only one more.  This time the nurse thinks it is a boy...preliminary ultra sounds only, but I could sure use another vote around here.  

So do the math real quick... in September we will have five children four and under for a couple of months at least.  We are very blessed and grateful.  Amie is an unbelievable women with patience, love and happiness abounding.   We have been married almost nine years and just like most of you have stories that will make your sides hurt from laughing.  And I can say most of those have happened in the past four years.  We look forward to sharing with you some of the ones that are to come.  

Please leave comments, we would love to hear from you.  

Happy Easter!

Last night the Easter Bunny came and left baskets of goodies including little bunnies for each of the kids.  Then early this morning Benjamin woke us up and said, "look what Santa brought!"  So cute right? Only that today is Easter! He is a little behind with the holidays.

Yesterday we colored Easter Eggs.  That was a great hit.  The kids loved the "magic".

This afternoon we had three families over this afternoon and had the best time. All together there were 8 adults and 8 kids (and three babies in the oven).  We ate our weight in ham, sweet potatoes, rolls, and salad, not to mention all the desert!  Then we shared a lesson of Easter while the eggs were hidden and then we let the crazies out to find the eggs and more importantly the candy.  We had a great Easter, hope yours was great too.  

Here we go

So much to little time. That and we have just started this blog stuff for our selves at least. We love visiting our friends and families, but haven't jumped on the bandwagon until now. This year is going to be amazing we already know, so it's a good time to start keeping a record if for no other reason than to keep us grounded.
