Summer is here and we survived another school year. We even made it through the crazy month of May! Hooray! Ezra got baptized and is obviously trying to be better and more helpful. He still slips up, but I can see him trying. The day after his baptism he offered to make my breakfast. I really need to get that kid to some cooking classes or something! Loo is still a handful, but she makes everybody laugh and adds so much joy to scripture reading time!

We don't have set plans for summer except girls camp AND scout camp. At least that starts next week and then in two weeks that craziness will be behind us. I get to go up to girls camp to help with dinner! I've NEVER been to girls camp. I listened to my mom and sister too much and decided to stay away from it all. Maybe some day I'll be cool enough to actuallly be called into young women's. For now I'll enjoy having one of the best callings ever...primary music leader!! My third time to have this calling and I'm still in awe of how these primary songs can teach such plain and precious truths in a way somebody as simple as I can understand. I love them! I love getting to feel the spirit as the kids learn and sing the songs with me!

For Ezra's baptism we were asked to do the special number. I asked ma to write a little interlude to combine the songs Faith and God's Love. Taylor, cagey and Mookie sang. They did good, but Jeebs said he could only hear Mookie. Great. We tried :)

It's been a little while

We are so close to the end of the school year and I can't wait! The kids are ready, I'm ready, errybody is ready! We had to wait so long for spring break that I think I wanna just throw in he towel. I need to register Taylor for high school. Yikes.

February is almost over. It's still snowing and that's ok. Tomorrow will be March and I'll be sick of it, but for today...I'll allow it.

We've had puke after puke and cold after cold. I would say that pretty much sums up February. I guess i need to get out and find an adventure. Every day I think we should go do something exciting and then every day the laundry, the solitude of my house and the struggle that is getting loo to stay asleep all night calls me back to reality.

Also, what should we do for spring break? I'm thinking...nothing.

thankfully January is over!

I've said it before and I'll say it again, January is the Monday of the year! But, it's over! I didn't blog a single time...that has to be a record since I started blogging. It was cold and snowy and just as January should be. I just wish we could push christmas back to the end of January to help get us through!

We did celebrate Yang's birthday with not one, but two cakes.  

Taylor likes to post with both babies...

and... I got a shiplap wall...but that was this month, not last :)

Christmas!!! and 15 years

Our Christmas was wonderfully relaxing and calm. I decided I wouldn't stress about everything being perfect for my kids and just try and enjoy myself. If I hadn't felt so bad it would've worked like a charm. Everybody has been sick and after taking care of sick kids, cleaning up vomit and getting to bed late so many nights my body started sinking. I think it has all come to a head today. My throat was hurting last night and all I could think about was that annoying commercial with the sleeping little girl thinking to herself "it'll hurt if I swallow, it'll hurt if I swallow, it'll hurt if I, MOMMY!"

But here are the pics of Christmas that didn't make the instagram cut:

Mookie came in before everybody else while we were getting clothes on...side eye. She's been sick for a while so we'll forgive her this time.

Ezra got so many legos...he loves them, but it makes me want to cry. I hate legos so much!

This is just too cute not to share again. I love them looking at each other. Loo got a new stroller and baby doll to push around. Annnndd new shoes and clothes because she loves shoes.

Cindy Loo trying to fit in this car just like the Grinch. And Mooks looking a little too much like her momma...I know you're all thinking it.

And this is kind of backwards, but we have a new Christmas Eve tradition...CHUBBY'S!! I don't love Chubby's, but my kids do and now they're in Saratoga Springs!! Just so nice to have something new :) Merry Christmas ya filthy animals! 

OH and Jeebs and I have been married for 15 freakin' years now. Weird.

Hello December, I'm not ready

Santa Claus can come now :) We have our fireplace!! Hopefully the drywall guys will come finish it by Friday.
It's now December and I am still recovering from Thanksgiving. I only took a few pics...I was too worn out from cooking every food in the land!!

Loo has slipped back into not sleeping through the the recovery process is slower. I love Christmas, but I'm not really ready for all the work of decorating and shopping. I just want to enjoy the season because it is the best time of the year and it always go by way too fast.

And lastly...muscles. It's my blog and I'll flex if I want to, flex if I want to. You would flex too if you had muscles on you :) (gotta sing it) Now I've got to go make Christmas treats.
