Happy Birthday Cori-updated

13!! I can't believe I have a full fledged teenager in the house! Cori is growing up so fast. She is beautiful, creative, helpful! And loves to tease, laugh, and have fun.
I am so happy to be her mom. Happy Birthday Cori. I love you.
I found some special candles. It was quite funny to watch Cori trying to blow them out.

another trick

Gage is learning new things each day. Today his new trick is to climb up on the ice chest. He was calling for help, and then when I got the camera, he smiled really big. Funny kid.

the garage

Think boxes, toys, trash, and junk piled everywhere. Unable to walk from door to door without stepping and almost falling over tons of stuff. (Because I don't have a before picture.
Now be amazed!!
Pool Table and the nice free carpet we got from our nice family

The shelves that my wonderful husband built. They turned out great. Now on to really organizing them.

and the punching bag. I love this. When the kids hit, or get really mad we send them out to "HIT THE BAG!"

I am so motivated to get it really organized and fun in there. I will post pictures again as we progress.

Gage's new trick

Yep you guessed it. Turning on and off the TV and turning the volume WAY up. He doesn't even watch TV. Which makes even more funny to me that he is interested in turning it on. He pushed his cube chair up to the Tv and started playing. The boys weren't too thrilled when he turned on the Today show instead of Star Wars.

Father and Sons

Our yearly tradition while the boys are away the girls go play. The boys went to Father and Sons Friday night, so the girls and I went to dinner, then to Target, then to the grocery store for dessert and movies. The girls needed new shoes

They also each got a new outfit. Its very rare that they get new clothes that didn't belong to someone else first, so this was a fun night.

For some reason Cori got out of the store with two new shirts. Oh well, she needs it.

Fun Girls night.


its been so long since I updated. I am a slacker. So I plan to post a few things. I guess I will start with a couple cute pictures
