seriously...

it's been a while since i posted and i always feel like i am doing well but the days just slip by so fast, it's amazing! i feel like we are on fast forward! my kids are getting older and bigger too fast and i inch closer to thirty everyday...but i am going to welcome 30 with open arms i tell you! i am just glad to make it that far!

last week blake was banging on the wall...as he is want to do sometimes and a picture frame fell off and clocked him on the forehead! it swelled up so fast! none of the other kids really ever had an injury like that...i was amazing how fast it swelled up and how nasty it looked! my mother in law (blessed woman) came to help me out with the other kids and with a Baby Einstein, a sucker and a pretzel (one in each hand) then we finally got some ice (read: frozen peas) on the owie and after about 15 minutes it looked much better...the next day it was way better...whew! i couldn't ever get a great picture of it...this is the day after....



blake and avery laying on the pillow from the futon..."snuggling" together

we've had some valentine decorations up for a little while now...i still have a heart garland i want to make but every time i go upstairs to do it during the day the kids knock over stuff...today's strategy was to give them felt they could cut themselves (ethan and avery..not blake), which they always like, and that worked for a while until blake started throwing safety pins and trying to grab my gingher scissors...hands off bubs!
(need to find something for that third hook....)



so we'll see if i can get it done....

Aww, goose-eggs are the worst! I think they seriously hurt us more than our kids :). Cute decorations!

I have really fallen in love with Valentine's decorations this year. Looks way cute Jen! The worse goose egg I've had with my kids was when Luke face planted at that one playgroup. It was HUGE right away as well. Yea for mother in laws!
