Our First Game - In Pictures

Our First Game was last Saturday and it was HOT!!! 

I'm talking about "Fry an Egg on the Pavement" HOT!! Except... we were the eggs out there frying!  Our girls were troopers though, and did a great job despite the heat.  

We had a few little mishaps during our half time performance, but overall they did an awesome job.  I am very proud.  For most, this is their first year cheering.

Below are some of the pictures from the game......

Flying Fairies and Giant Ants -

Last night as I lay in bed at 2:00 a.m! I could not get to sleep.  
I wasn't the only one having that problem, my youngest two, in bed with me, were also restless, moving around and whispering in between my repeated Shushes.  I finally sent them to their rooms, but still failed to go to sleep. After a bit I got up to check on them, and found them both in Emily's room, laughing, giggling, and having a good ole time.

Aaaahhhh...... The joys of Motherhood.  When we take on our role as mother and provider, we find ourselves doing and saying things we never thought we would.  It opens a new world to us of things we thought we would never see.  Such as poop in hair.  I'll explain below....

Who Says You Can't Eat Your Cake and Enjoy It Too?

Oh how time does fly.

My baby girl just turned 14.  It is still so hard to believe that I have two teenagers.  Not to mention a preteen and a 9 year old.

For Lauren's birthday we went to my mom's house and swam.  They fixed burgers on the grill, and we had homemade ice-cream.  I made Lauren's favorite cake......chocolate cake with chocolate icing......yum! 

We let the kids swim for a bit, then had them come in for the cake....

Lauren REALLY enjoyed her cake!
