Sunday school

I captured this on my phone today, pretty cute, one of our 2-3 yr olds took Mr.Travis a book to read and the next minute they were all gathered around to listen.

Annoying Parents

Just said a prayer for the annoying obnoxious parents at my kids basketball game, did I mention he was SEVEN and this is Parks and Rec? Not sure how anyone volunteers to coach, no way they could pay me to volunteer to be yelled at by the obnoxious annoying rude parents. I said a prayer for the coaches too and for me to control my tongue and not say anything back, so hard..

Grandma Susie is 60 today!!

Mardi Gras Ball

These Stout friends invited us to join them at a Mardi Gras Ball 5 days ago and we could not pass up the offer. I text one my sitters that day and she agreed to watch my babes and lent me a cute dress! Jenny showed off her moves and some singing as well, it was such a blast, what a fun couple. Sad I didn't have my camera there b/c the ladies and gentlemen looked gorgeous and the masks were incredible.

The kids got into it as well, they each designed their own mask with lots of sequins and feathers (hard to see from the pic).

My girlfriend Jenny Foltz made me the most amazing mask, I only asked her 12h before, it was so perfect, thank you!!!

between my oldest and youngest boys

50 bucks a tooth!

Monroe was so proud she lost her tooth at school on Thursday. I had attempted a Lindsay and tried to pull it out myself after blood and tears I did not succeed. She had a sleepover with a friend that night so the tooth fairy delivererd. By the time I picked her up she had lost her 3 dollars, but Grayson came through very generously and had given her 50 dollars out of her piggy bank. She hesitantly gave back the 50 and Grayson hesitantly took it and I think everyone was in tears by the time we left, gotta love the day after sleepovers!

Sweet slumber

hope you don't feel violated of me taking pictures of sweet beckham, how could you resist?? Don't worry Shannon, I didn't leave the room while he was on his tummy, don't you love that little bum in the air?

So his eyes opened for maybe these 2 seconds, (at least I was camera ready) the entire time I had him, I felt kind of jipped.

100th day of school

We were winded after blowing up only a few balloons so we had to bust out the air compressor Trav just got for his birthday,

=100 balloons on a paper bag, hopefully she doesn't have to sit down, could be dangerous.

Happy 35th Trav! I keep teasing him he will be advanced paternal age, we call pregnant moms 35 and over AMA or advanced maternal age. I found this pic of him wearing the empathy belly when we were in childbirth class 8 yrs ago. Still a keeper at 35.
