Days Go By

We are surviving over here, slowly but surely I am getting the hang of this thing called a family of 5! Lots of our time is just spent on the accomplishment of staying clean, staying happy and staying alive. Errands, projects, crafts, yes even some chores, and cooking gets put off. But the important things are getting done.

The two older boys play hard outside, play hard inside, and sometimes run me into the ground. Case is consistently sleeping about 7-9 hours at night and our next goal is to get a more scheduled nap time during the day. Spencer is the man and has temporarily taken some of my couponing over so that I don't have to stress about taking the kids. He is pretty good at it...I might have created a monster. My normal clothes are making sporadic reappearances in my wardrobe.

So yes, days go by. Happy days at that. This is my new normal (thanks to Karen for the sage advice years ago) and I am pretty content with it.

Here are some pictures from this week.

Case full and happy

Jack, one of many days of missed nap, passed out

Cole, happy, handsome and tan

Oh my gosh, I am famous, having been referenced on your awesome blog. And frankly I'm glad that I gave out one piece of good advice in my forty-something years of living.

Your boys are soo cute; Kristi and I love checking out your blog just to see their pictures. What a cool family you are.

How in the world did you get him to sleep so many hours a night, lol! You really are magical, I KNEW IT! Larissa, everyone of your little men are so darn cute, I love all the sweet pictures!

Case is so adorable! Just like Jack and Cole! I'm glad your slowly adjusting to 5. 5 was so hard for me. But Logan was a pain in the butt. I think now that I have six, I could have 10 and it wouldn't change anything. I'm glad I'm done though! I bet you are looking awesome! (We won't get evidence of that though, will we?)

Case is so very cute! The boys are sure growing up fast! You have such cute boys! I need to copy the Wild Waves video and send you a copy to show your boys, my daughter loves it! I love how Richelle would not come within feet of the mic!
