Our very first fort!

On Mother's Day, Jake took the boxes that our dishwasher and stove came in and made the kids their very first fort. They played for hours in the backyard, all by themselves! They ran through it, piled stuff on top of it, laid down in it, everything you can think of. So here's some pics of my little cuties having a great time!

Happy Mother's Day!

We had a great Mother's Day around here! My parent's were in town for the weekend and we had a fun visit. The kids gave Yia-Yia her Mother's Day gift which was adorable, but I can't post a pic yet because Granna hasn't received her gift yet and it is the same thing, but trust me it's way cute. My parents left early Sunday morning to head back home and I got to sleep in a little, which was nice! Jake got me some beautiful flowers, and the kiddos made some special gifts for me. The big kids made me a bouquet of hand print flowers in a flower pot. Charlie made a little decoupage flower vase pretty much all by himself! Our oven went out a few weeks ago, so we also got a new oven and cook top. And because we go through alot of dishes around here, we got a new dishwasher too! We can now watch TV at night,while the dishwasher runs, without having to turn the volume up so loud that it could actually wake the kids! Hope all the Momma's out there had a great day!

My flowers from Jake and my "flowers" from the big kids

All my goodies, aren't they too cute?

They were a ton of help

And didn't get in the way at all!

My little performers!

We had "Art Fest" at the kids school a few weeks ago. It is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Each class does a class project that is auctioned off, and each child does two pieces of art work that the parents can purchase. It is alot of fun! This year, the kids got to perform. They sang "The Itsy Bitsy Spider", a personal favorite in this household. I was nervous at how they would do on stage, in front of hundreds of people, but they did awesome! So here it is for your veiwing pleasure, the big kids very first public performance.

I've already told them, next time, they have to stand closer together!
