I've Been Tagged!

Thanks Ang, I love thinking about weird facts about myself. I will try to come up with 7, its not that I don't have any, just which ones would I like to share.

Some random or weird facts:
  1. I love a neat house and try to keep one with 4 kids, but my office/kids craft/music room is one big pile of mess. Maybe because it has an identity problem.
  2. I took guitar lessons for 5 years (in elementary school) and can't play one note now.
  3. I once made 100 free throws in a row at HHS.
  4. I have been pregnant and/or nursing since 1999.
  5. I had too many projects and other things on my To Do List, I threw it away (I was getting stressed).
  6. I enjoy being a chauffeur to 4 kids, if I wasn't busy I would lose my mind.
  7. I have read 17 books this year.
Everyone I know with blogs have already been tagged. If you are reading this and you have a blog I don't know about let me know. I love reading them, and feeling connected.

Family Fun

I know it has been awhile. I have no excuse, just very busy. I thought I would give you insight into my world for one week (things we have every week). Sunday...a.m. church; p.m. dinner at Hughes house; Monday...p.m. Harrison acting; Tuesday...a.m. Dylan-Mother's Day Out(MDO); p.m. Layla gymnastics; Wednesday...a.m. Dylan gymnastics; p.m. Awana Church; Thursday...a.m. Dylan MDO; p.m. Harrison piano lessons and Game Night at our house; Friday...p.m. Movie Night at our house; Saturday...see the following

We recently went to our next door neighbor's daughter's 2nd birthday party. They had a county fair in there front yard, petting zoo, games, bump n jump, hot dogs, popcorn, and cupcakes. The kids had so much fun...photos below.







The following pictures are when we went to the Lock and Dam Park. It was so nice outside and the kids were very hungry and tired after. We ate at CJ's Burger, the best burger and fries in Russellville. The kids call it the place that has root beer and a jukebox. It is an experience in its self according to them.





For Amos' birthday we went to the Mid-America Museum, he had been wanting to see the Body's Exhibit. Amos' dad and Myra met us there. The kids had a ball and Amos enjoyed the exhibit. I opted not to go in with the 2 younger kids; besides I didn't really want to see it. Then we ate at On the Border (I probably would have not enjoyed lunch if I had went in), it was a "good fun" family day.

Dylan has had a hard time adjusting to playing by herself while Layla and Harrison are at school. She usually picks one toy or stuffed animal and plays with it all day. Her most recent toy is a unicorn whom she named Acorn. I am not sure where she came up with the name. I think it is very creative.


Cute picture of my 7 month old, 22 lbs of mess. He has a bit of a temper, if you don't do the right thing and do it quickly, he will let you know. He can get up on all fours, but does not know what to do from there. It won't be long and I will have to get out the gates.
