I Had Good Intentions

I went to Sam's to pick up some food and snacks today. My intentions were to get healthy items, but my pregnancy hormones led me astray and this is what ended up in the cart.

And no, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you, that IS in fact a 6 pound bag of Gummi Bears.

Little Girls & Fangs

I had to post these pics. The girls got these things out of a little machine at a local restaurant. Even though we don't do scary things for Halloween, the girls thought these were too funny. And I have to admit, my mom and I laughed pretty hard, till I had tears running down my cheeks. I guess you had to be there, haha.

Getting Ready For 5

We have been working a lot over the past week to make room for these sweet, new babies. I guess I thought it would be a little easier than it's been :). We currently only have 3 bedrooms until we find a new home for our growing family. Which means that Ella, Reese & Charlotte will be sharing a room....moving Ella in with the twins was a little crazy.

We had some tears, and a lot of questions, but in the end everyone was ok! The first night was a little wild, but tonight is the 2nd night, and they did great. Although instead of going right to sleep, we are hearing a lot of little giggles in there, which I have to admit, fills my heart.

I will say it again, we are about to have 5 girls that are 4 & under!! I still can't believe it sometimes, it seems surreal. But then I feel some kicks and a couple contractions, and reality sets back in. Wow, life will be a little wild for a bit, but oh are we excited. I get nervous about it sometimes, but I am ready, I think :). I keep looking at these little sleepers & clothes, and I just can't wait to meet these girls. They are going to be too sweet.

I have been having a lot more contractions and have been put on some meds to calm them down a bit. Everything is fine, just a little preterm labor. We still plan on making it another 3-4 weeks, hopefully. Ooohhhh, I can't wait to kiss their little faces!!

The New Mr. & Mrs. And One Cute Flower Girl

Well the wedding went great, everything went just as planned. It was awesome to stand by mom as she married Bob, they are a sweet couple. Ella was the Flower Girl, she looked absolutely darling. She was a little worn out by the end of the night, but she had a lot of fun. Here are a few random pics.

Mom Is Walking Down The Aisle

My mom is getting married tomorrow!! We are so excited for her & Bob. They are such a sweet couple and I don't know anyone who deserves this day more than my mom. She is truly an amazing woman. We are so happy to have Bob join the family, and are so thankful that he and my mom found each other. So in honor of the wedding, Oct. 11th, here is a list of the top 11 things I love most about my mom.

1. She is the strongest woman I know. I pray that I have the same strength and courage for my family that she had for us.

2. She is a giver. Not only to people she loves, but also to people she barely knows.

3. Speaking of giving, she not only donates clothes to Goodwill, but also to the local Elsa's as well.

4. Ladies nights at Elsa's and Brio's Patio. Enough said.

5. We pretty much know exactly what the other is thinking without even saying anything, and it's usually funny.

6. She is an amazing listener. I can't even count the times that I have cried and talked while she just listened. I can't even imagine what I would do without her there to talk to.

7. She loves our girls as if they were her own. It is unconditional. And our girls cherish her, when Grandma is around, not much else matters.

8. She is the true definition of a mother. There is nothing she hasn't, or wouldn't do for my brothers and I. She has always been there for us, and has always stood by us, no matter what. She is always there to guide and support, and has been the "glue" that held us together.

9. Even though some people might call it stalking, she's doesn't mind that I call her like 100 times a day.

10. Her hilarious sense of humor. I have laughed till I cried countless times with her. Like recently when I was trying to fit my swollen feet into wedding shoes at David's Bridal...not ideal, but really, really funny.

11. She has not only been an amazing mother my whole life, but my best friend. The woman I can confide in, and laugh with. The woman I look up to.

Congrats Mom! I love you!

Does anyone know of any night time kids devotionals that you would recommend? We are looking for a new one for Ella (4.5), and just wondering which ones you all really like. I would love some suggestions. Thanks!!

So Ready For Fall!!

This past weekend we took the girls to a Pumpkin Patch near by to pick up some Fall goodies. They also had a petting zoo which the girls absolutely loved. It was such a beautiful day, and the cool weather made all of us super excited for Fall. We baked some pumpkin cookies & carved the pumpkins when we got back home, good family time.

First, absolutely love this pic, he loves his little girls. Here is Charlotte & Daddy looking at some animals at the petting zoo.
Picking out a Pumpkin was such a big decision!

Eric did all the dirty work, the girls didn't like the insides of the pumpkins on their hands.

The Pumpkins turned out great! When we lit them up, the girls thought it was the best thing ever. They ask every night to "turn on the pumpkins!"
