Today has been another Crazy day...are there anything but crazy days in my life...I'm just not sure anymore. I had to take the girls to go get immunizations today. Shots...what a great way to spend my day. I got everybody up and out the door (somehow relatively quickly), we got to Stockton (45min from my house) and registered at the desk (10:45am), then we Waited and waited and waited. After 1 hr and 15 min with 5 hungry(snacks got old quickly) bored, and tired kiddos we get called back. Great...it's almost Over is all I can think about. Then they put us in a room, and we wait and wait some more. Aly got 1 shot, Megan got 1 shot, Paige got 1 shot, and Sierra got 3. I had to wake poor Sierra up from her nice little snooze, just so they could poke her 3 times. Load them all back in the car, look at the time (now 1:15pm) and off I go rushing to get home so we can go to Sneak a Peek at school. Thankfully I was able to get a hold of my mom and she came over to the house to watch the younger 3. I knew there was NO WAY they were going to be patient and polite anymore today. (that says something when I actually call my mom to come watch them) So again I rush out the door, walk across the street, go to the classrooms, talk to the teachers, and rush back home. So glad it's over...now to get dinner finished, clean up, get them all bathed and ready for their First Day of School! They start at 8:35am...this will be interesting. I see us walking over with several girls and possibly myself in jammies. lol
I am so NOT ready for tomorrow. I can't believe 2 of my babies will be at school. How will I get by with only 3 girls at home? It's so Hard to watch them grow up and go to school. I can't even think about when they will all be in school. Things will just be too quite and lonely. :)
On another note....we had Fun on Saturday for the girls Parties. Lots of friends and family showed up, and it was HOT! We played on the water slide (from Costco) and bbq'd. It was a lot of work, but nice when it was done. The girls got lots of Great stuff. Kayla is a big Pirates of the Caribbean girl (she loves her Jack Sparrow) and Paige wanted Barbie. So we had two cakes (which thankfully I didn't dump either one of these ones) and lots of Pirate's and Barbie stuff all over. Brad helped me out so much Saturday...from cleaning the kitchen, sweeping and mopping all the hardwood (and trust me there is a lot), getting the slide set up, and bbq'ing, I am most grateful to him and all his help. Sunday was just sitting on our butts all day and watching the girls on the slide.
Here's some pics from the day....
All my babies.
Showing some LOVE....
and even more LOVE. My heart just melts with these girls...=)
Enjoying the slide.
Having some Cake.

Exhausted girls from playing so hard..
Out of the Mouth of Babes:
We put the girls to bed last night and about 10 minutes later Megan comes down the stairs and sits on the bottom stair. Brad and I ask her what's wrong and she looks at us all sad and says..."Kayla called me a Crabby Patty". I literally busted out laughing and had to walk away I was laughing so hard. Brad walked over, put his arm around and said "It's ok...you are my Crabby Patty". That made her happy. Yeah...Sponge Bob is a hit in our house, as far as the girls are concerned.
My mom made this (I think it's the Mai Tai Wrap) and we put Megan in it to try it out...lol (Megan is 24lbs)
and can't wait till I get mine. =)
