Project 365 - Day 85 to Day 88

I fell behind again, but this time, the reason was completely out of my hands! Our internet went out and didn't get fixed until late last night. I figure I'll catch up again all right here!

First, Thursday night I went out. Daddy got to spend some quality time with his kids. I guess they were bored or something, because when I got home, I was greeted with this!

Catey is getting really mobile. She's figured out how to army crawl, get up on her hands and knees, and even get to sitting from laying. Her new favorite thing to do is sit under the coffee table. I think she thinks her little hide out. *Please don't mind her mess shirt, she just got done eating mac & cheese before this pic*

Saturday night we had a bon fire here. The kids had a blast. Abby got a little chilly while eating her Smore, so she decided to warm her buns!

Again, at the bon fire, Jake was kicking back relaxing, watching the fire. He was just too cute not to get a pic of! Gotta love the chocolatey, ketchupiness of his face! lol

Project 365 - Day 84

Today, the kids wanted to be a bit artsy. I let them get out the crayon and marker box to color some coloring box. I was talking on the phone to my mom and not paying exactly close attention. Next thing I know Emma comes over to me like this! I was like "Emma, we don't eat markers, why were you eating it?" She said "I wasn't eating it!" I was like "Well, what were you doing, why do you have it all over your mouth!? Wait, were you putting on lipstick?!" She just flashed her big ole ornery grin. Oy, I'm in trouble with this one!

Project 365 - Day 83

Today is another pic of Catey Bug. I've made all the kids a crocheted animal. We always call Catelyn, Catey Bug, so I figured it was fitting to make her a bug! Here she is enjoying it!

And here it is up close! I think it's pretty cute!

Project 365 - Day 82

Last night was Catey's first spaghetti dinner! She was such a mess, but loved every minute! As you can see here, she was shoveling it in by the fist fulls!

Project 365 - Day 81

Nothing better on a Summer day than eating some melon. Even better is when you share it with your little brother!

Project 365 - Day 80

Today, Jacob decided it'd be a good idea to get a little hand fan caught up in Emma's long curly hair. I tried to get it undone without cutting, but there was just a little bit that would not come out. I didn't want the poor thing to go around with a short chunk in her long locks, not to mention she was over due for a cut and wanted it done. So I chopped it off. She looks so cute now! Below is the before and after!!

BEFORE: Notice how upset she was about Jake getting that stuck in her hair!

AFTER: She's so happy and loves her new cut!

Project 365 - Day 79

It just warms my heart to see these two best friends together! Especially when they get along. They can be so lovey with each other!

There is no friend, like your sister.

Project 365 - Day 78

Well, today is the big day I mentioned earlier in the week. My big girl has her first day of school. It's her 2nd year of Pre-K, but still, what first day of school isn't a big event! So here's 2 pics to celebrate the big event!

Project 365 - Day 77

Mommy's glasses are so cool. *rolls eyes* At least Jake thinks so. He begged to try them on, then after he thoroughly enjoyed the drunken effect, refused to give them back!

Project 365 - Day 76

Today was one of those days where Emma was in one of those moods. It's always tough when she's like this. I decided why not try to lighten it up a bit by putting a very fitting shirt on her! Seriously, this shirt and that face could not sum her up better!!!

Project 365 - Day 75

It's hard to believe that these 2 cuties are a little more than a year apart in age! The good thing about them being that close is that they get along so well. I mean, just look at them sitting there in their diapers, having a good time with each other!

Project 365 - Day 74

The other night we decided to make S'mores for a snack. The kids loved them! Not only are they good to eat, but their fun to play with too!

Project 365 - Day 68 Through Day 73

I'm so sorry for my near week long hiatus. It's been a very busy week for us, especially from Thursday through today! But I'm finally back at it and I'm going to try to be more consistent again. We have a big event coming up this week that I want to make sure I get up on the day!

Anyway, since I missed out on 6 days of pictures, I'm going to put up 6 pictures here to catch up. A bunch of randomness that's been going on here lately!

My Great Aunt made this really cute little hat that she sent to Abby a few years back. The kids have taken it and made it one of their "dress up" hats. Emma decided to come out and model it off! What a cutie!

Another of the dress up bests! The dynamic duo at work again!

Catey bug LOVES bath time. She giggles and laugh the whole time playing in the tub!

Jake was getting mad at me for whatever reason. I happened to have my camera in hand at the time. Snapped the pic and then laughed at the results. Needless to say, that cheered his foul mood!

Look at our other babies! Their getting so big! It's fun to go out and watch them now, romp and play and all. That's what the kids do a lot now! Here's 4 of our 5 babies, the 5th was hiding in the shed there, but it looks identical to the gray and white one. The 2 gray and whites look identical to momma!

Ballroom dancing anyone?! Em and Jake got all dressed up today to go visit Great Grandma. While they were waiting for everyone else to get ready, they decided to dance around the room!

Project 365 - Day 67

At the birthday party we went to Saturday, the kids all got wonderful treat bags. Jake decided to try everything on from it. He's just too cool!

Project 365 - Day 66

I know I'm biased, but is this not the cutest baby! I mean really! She's getting so big and getting down sippy cups. She happened to find her brother's on the floor and confiscated it. That face just screams "Victory!"

Project 365 - Day 65

You caught me, I fell behind again. But we had a busy weekend. Unfortunately I didn't get any pics of the things we did. I do have a few from the few days before and one from today! Enjoy me catching up!

Doesn't he look just like his daddy! Especially with that hat on. I think he'll be a hat boy like his dad!

Project 365 - Day 64

As you know already, Jake has made the transition over to a big boy bed. Unfortunately he was stuck with an unmatching, random set of bedding. It was ok for a bit, but I thought he needed his own set. Luckily I found this set that will match his new room when it gets done. Of course, the 3 big kids had to try it out!

Project 365 - Day 63

The girls decided to make a Daddy-Tent. That is, throw a blanket over daddy like he's a tent. Jake thought they were loony!

Wednesday, August 5, 2009

Project 365 - Day 62

Today was a beach trip! The kids loved it! All of them were little fish and little sand sculptors. Jake especially liked throwing the sand as you can see!

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

Project 365 - Day 61

Aunt Keli came to visit! The kids absolutely love their Aunt Keli! As you can imagine, excitement ensued. Then, just because they love her so much, they all took a good picture with her! YAY!

Project 365 - Day 60

After all the fun and excitement playing with their friends yesterday, the kids were really tuckered out. This morning, I got woke up a few times with kids coming into my bed! Jake and Emma decided they were ready to get up, but Abby and Catey were still tired. I thought this was just too cute because they were wearing matching dresses, cuddling with each other! (They all fell asleep in their clothes on the short ride home!)

Project 365 - Day 59

We had an awesome day hanging out with our friends yesterday! The kids especially had a blast swimming, playing, and jumping on the trampoline. Abby and Emma have done it before, along with their friend Sammi, but Jake decided to climb up on it too. He had a blast!

Project 365 - Day 58

I know, I got behind a few days again. Long weekend, but it was fun. I'll catch up today!

Catey is so silly! She loves this bouncer my friend gave me! Every time I took a pic of her in it, she was laughing and making silly faces at me!
