Daddy's gonna love this!

Yesterday before school, Ashton was quietly eating his breakfast and decided to slip away to the garage to play-we found him with about 15 drawers open in the tool chest. If you know Russ, you know that he is very organized when it comes to his garage and there is a place for EVERYTHING and it's labeled! Ashton must have thought it needed a little reorganizing! :)

Milkin' it for all it's worth!

Well, we decided to give the whole "holding your own bottle" a try this past weekend. . .the twins did great! It's been a time saver when there's only one adult to feed the little ones! They are really getting big and they are even eating some BIG people food. Suprise, suprise, they have a sweet tooth, just like their daddy. Last week, Mimi bought all the kids cupcakes and everyone loved them and then yesterday the boys ate cinammon rolls and bread from Calico County. What a treat!

Big Week!

So I haven't posted anything in a while but we have had a LOT going on! I will start with the most exciting news. Harper has finally rolled over!!!!! Most babies roll over way before 10 months. I was so worried that something was wrong. Turns out that all it took to get him rolling was Little Henry moving!!! Not moving forward but moving backward! Russ and I couldn't be more excited! The twins doctor told us last month that they were not developing as fast as she hoped. I guess that got them going because they have made up for a lot of lost time in the last couple of weeks.
I sure don't want to leave out Ashton's big news either. My rough and tough boy woke up on Saturday morning with a black eye. How he did that in his sleep is beyond me! I don't know why I should be surprised, he is the kid that had a cast up to his hip at the age of 1 due to a broken femur!!! He is going to be an amazing football player!

Our new house!

Russ and I have finally found a house that we BOTH love. Seems we have been looking for a while for a bigger house...Lord knows we need it with all these kids. It seemed that every house I liked, he didn't. All the houses he liked, I didn't.

Well Rachel decided to take action and she found a house that she thought we would both like. There was only one problem.....the house wasn't for sale. I know, BIG problem! Well everyone knows how Rachel is. She just went to the couple and asked if they might consider selling their home. They were NOT interested and wouldn't return her calls but she stayed on them for over a month. She finally convinced them it was in there best interest to move. How she did this I have no idea. Russ and I went around the house and both fell in love. Before Rachel could even get our house listed, she sold it! Go figure! If anyone knows of a better realtor than Rachel Brown, please tell me! I just can't believe they are out there! (Thanks a bunch Rach! We love you!) are a couple of pictures! Can you tell that I am excited?

3 Boys in the Tub!

Well we had a really big night...all the boys took a bath together. This helped me out A LOT!!! Unfortunately, Harper wasn't really happy about it. Henry and Ashton thought it was great but my sweet, sensative Harper didn't like it. I have to toughen him up. He is so sensitive, which is funny because he is the biggest of them all.
