So I was going thru my phone pics recently and was laughing at how silly my kids are, and cute!! Aren't they just the cutest kids you ever did see? I'm not bias at all. Ha, ha. So here are some fun random pictures of my fun random kiddos. PS I heart my iphone!!

 Smarty Pants Claire
 Penguin and the Princess
 Kael said he wanted to take a picture with mommy, and of course Claire had to get in on the action
 Bucket Head! Apparently I would do the same thing when I was her age. I'll have to scan a picture to compare, everybody says she looks just like me
So Kael was a dinosaur for Halloween and I made his costume this year. Probably not going to do that again. It was a lot of work. But seeing how excited he was to wear it and the fact that he wore it for like two weeks after was all worth it. And this picture. Ha ha, so I'm a little embarrassed that I'm putting this on here but it makes me laugh every time I look at it. It reminds me how much of a nerd I am.... Yup still a really big nerd. But my kids love me. 
 Look at that awesome hair!! She has soooo much of it and this is usually what she looks like at the end of the day
 Oh Kael, he is such a silly boy. I love this kid so much. He came out of his room dressed like this one night. Don't you just love that pose. (ignore the messy in the background, that's my house at the end of each day, awesome huh? Gotta love kids)
 Claire wanted to sit on Kael's lap and Kael thought he was such a big boy!! 
 Doesn't this face just melt your heart? Ugh he is getting so big.
 They were so good for my one day when I took them to the store, I just couldn't resist giving them an awesome treat. Sonic ice cream shakes, what better treat is there?
 Kael loves to dress up. I would be a little worried but my youngest brother would do the same thing.
And After playing really hard and destroying my house Claire crashed while in the process of climbing off the couch. She was seriously in the middle of climbing down and then she wasn't moving. I looked over and she was dead asleep. Ha, ha all with a mac n cheese noodle from lunch still stuck to her leg.
This girl parties hard and crashes even harder. 
She alone can destroy my better and faster then Kael, Chase and myself all put together. 

I love my kids! They are such rotten brats but I love them all the same. I only hope that each day I can strive to be the best mother I can be for them. It's never too late to try to be better.

Its time...

So I've made the desicion to make my family blog private. I know, lame right? Such a pain. Well the main reason I started this blog back in 2007 was so I could turn it into a book at the end of the year for my scrapbooks. I don't scrapbook. I wish I did, so I could give each of my kids their own book when they get married. My mother in-law finished Chase's the summer before we got married and my mom has most of mine done. And one of these days she will have the time to finish it, he he. But anywho, the important thing, to me anyways, is that it's there to be pasted on. My dad didn't get a book from his mom but he got a box full of all these cool things she saved, from pictures to tapes from his mission.My mom's mom I think has the same thing but hers is just a box of pictures. She gave all her kids special items a while ago. I think it's so important to pass things on to your kids that has their history. Family history is so much fun when their are stories and pictures to go along with the names. Anyways, MY was to make a scrapbook for the family and by pass the time consuming project of printing pictures, decorating pages, yadda yadda. Well then it occurred to me that who is to decide which child gets what book. So after festering over for literally three and a half years (since we had Kael) I have figured it out. I am going to make a family BlogScrapbook for each year and each kid will have a REAL scrapbook that hopefully I can finish before they get married. Quite a task!! Especially since I'm already almost four years behind. But I think it's important that each kid have his own, and it gives me an excuse to scrapbook. I really do like to do it but I don't wantit to be a HUGE project. My goal, is to get the last five years of our FAMILY blogbook done this year! I've just finished year one!! So the reason I'm going private? Since this is a PERSONAL blog it should be a little more private. Anywho, leave me comment with your email if you still want to follow our families happenings. I'm going to make the comments private so you don't have to worry about anybody getting you email. Anyone is invited to follow us. I'll wait for a little bit before I officially go private because I know not everyone looks at their blogs every day, or week for that matter.
Here's on old easter picture I found... Remember my bald, rolly poly little boy. This was Kael's first time coloring eggs. Don't I look awesome. bahahaha! I looked like I just rolled out of bed.
Happy Easters ya'll!!
