Snow Day!

We were sooo happy to have a snow day!!! It was the most wonderful day home with my kiddos. I decided to take some pics of our day.
The boys were lazy in their lounging clothes watchin' a movie in their room. They ALWAYS do this! EVERY. SINGLE. DAY!

They love playin' games on their ipod touch!

And then..there are the two littles...
And where are these two off to??(They were walking arm in arm)

They always have their hands on each other.

Love the hair girlies!

Yep, they do EVERYTHING together. :-)

I LOVE this picture. Melt my heart!(Doug asked me if Lily was wearing make-up..nope.)

And this one, too!
While our "Bubbas" were at basketball practice..we hung out some more!
These two are ALWAYS doing this...following each other around...
giggling..and looking for each other.

They hit the jackpot! Suckers! Hurry grab as many as you can before Momma comes!
Lily LOVES to climb up on the fire LJ just has to join her best bud!

I have no words...

Yep, this was just one day!
Everywhere I go, it seems that someone says..."Wow, have your hands full!" Doug and I look at one another and laugh. We do have our hands full. It isn't always easy. There are days when we're tired. When nothing seems to go right. When our house is a disaster...even though we've cleaned up the toys several times that day. When the laundry piles seem to reach the sky. When we wonder if we've even had an adult conversation....But...then..we thank GOD we have children that wear us out...that we have children that love us even when things go wrong, that we have 4 beautiful babies making the house a disaster, and that we had LOTS of fun playing with those little ones making the laundry dirty...and our conversations...are NEVER BORING!
I'm so thankful God CHOSE me!!!!!

Day out with the Grandies

For the past few years, Popaw Dennis has treated the guys to a day out at Entertrainment Junction...this year the ladies were invited too! ;-) (For the record..I think the guys were afraid to try to take the 6 kids by themselves this year. lol. JK!!)

We met up at our favorite diner in downtown Cincy.
The Grandies
Aren't they handsome? Best seats in the house!
Then we were off to see the trains!
Derek and Lolee
We began with two guys acting out "A Christmas Carol" and Tiny Tim was NONE OTHER than...
our Bryson Quinn!!
These three crack me up!
Lily Hope had a ball!! She LOVED this train!
Here are Momaw and Popaw with their clan!

Popaw topped off the day by treating us to Graeter's ice-cream! Yum!!

Thank you Momaw and Popaw for an amazing day!
