We were inspired by a stretch of warm sunny weather, and a clearance price, to buy a new BBQ. Because we were being cheap, Husband had to put it together.
It took a couple of hours with assistance.
Monkey assistance that is....
But it is gorgeous and shiny!!! We have taken to watching "Wheel of Fortune" before the kids go to bed, and the kids are very inspired by Vanna White. Travis thinks she is 'magic' because she can make the letters appear from nowhere. here is their best Vanna impression.

Four year old boys are sooo much fun!! Unpredictable, sweet, charming, hateful, wonderful...all in the span of 5 minutes. And can they ever run fast!!
-with Daddy looking sooo handsome!
-holding Tess...so proud.
-articulating his feelings, so furiously.
-looking sweet in great morning light.
-just being cute.
-holding the babies in his santa hat...he lived in it throughout the season.
-the girls are getting harder for him to hold!!
-getting ready for Christmas!!
And something 4 year old boy will do, that a 10 year-old boy probably won't do is scooter down the street screaming "I LOVE YOU MOM!!!"
He is so....Travis.

I'd love to include her friends in some photos, they were so sweet, but well with privacy issues......
We have had the most beautiful weather this last week, so we have been scootering like crazy, and trying to spend as much time outside as we can before it rains again...that is NOT my car by the way...

Journaling has never come easy for me...I just never have anything I feel the need to keep record of...and the things I REALLY feel compelled to get off my chest and onto paper, tend to need to be disposed of quickly. I am a list maker, but not a chronicler.
This last year has been a rough one. We had our experience with our monoamniotic twins, then my dad died November 16, and my grandmother the 21st. This has made me want something to give my kids to tell them, and remind them of their childhood. I hope I can keep it up....it's been fun so far. But today I had to do a flurry of cleaning so I could sit down and reward myself with a sparkling water( oh diet coke I miss you!!!) and a moment on the computer. I just have to remember I have carrots on for Tess and Lily!!
The babies and I spent the morning hunting thrift shops for a tea set for Alexa. She has invited a few friends over for a tea party tomorrow, and I wanted her to have a proper set...no luck. She is eight, so I didn't want to get her a toy one...and I have my grandmothers china she can use.
Argh!! My water just boiled away!! I hope I can salvage the carrots!

Thank you for the comments!! It is super fun to receive them...and it was just really nice. I couldn't figure out how to respond to them individually, but I will one day...Thanks again!!
Jack is 10...he is great. He hates to have his photo taken, but when the twins were born he was THE ONLY one of the kids that would let us take a photo of them at family day at the NICU, and it is a great one.

I stewed and stewed about a name for my blog, and finally asked Husband and the two older kids to think of something witty to describe me or our family. Well, the other two weren't so helpful, but Alexa came up with this..... so how could I resist??? I had to use it, and so this is how I came up with the link to my blog. I promise I am not quite that full of myself! But it did make me feel AWSOME!!!!
