New pictures

Jenessa turns 6!

Pictures coming soon!

Jenessa turned 6 several days ago (I'm a little slow in posting). She woke up wanting the day to be like Christmas. She thought that Ryan shouldn't have to go to work and she didn't think she should have to do any school! Well, Ryan did have to go to work and unfortunately he also had meetings all evening. I told her that she only had to pick 2 school subjects to do that day (she picked math and phonics!)

Since Ryan had to work late but is able to come home for lunch, that is when we opened presents and had cake and ice cream. She was thrilled with her new stash of polly pockets (all three girls have played with them nearly nonstop all week!)

She was disappointed that we couldn't go out and do anything that evening. She kept suggesting things that I just couldn't do with all 4 kids by myself. However, the next evening she did have a party for her basketball team and Freedom Station (think Peter Piper Pizza or a really small version of Chuck E Cheese). She had a great time there playing the games. On Saturday she chose to go out to eat at Applebees. I don't know why my kids like that place, but I'm glad they do because I like it! (I had the Santa Fe Chicken Salad, yummy!)

I realized however while we were there that there is one thing that scares me more than going grocery shopping with 5 children and that is going to a restaurant with 5 children! Maybe in a few years in won't be so bad but our 1 year old and 3 year old are trouble! I'm sure it won't happen often, it already happens only on birthdays now.

Do dogs really eat alphabet soup?

Tonight Sienna asked me when we can feed our dogs alphabet soup! Now, for those of you who may not be PBS watchers that comment might be a bit confusing. But, my children have been watching too much T.V. lately...even if it is only PBS. There is a show called Martha Speaks where a dog ate alphabet soup and suddenly started talking like a human, so now her humans feed her alphabet soup all the time! So, I can just see Sienna's mind at work wondering if that would work with our dogs!

"You finally cooked something"

Yep, that was the comment I got yesterday as we sat down to eat dinner. Ryan had bought a roast, potatoes and carrots on Saturday and I put it in the oven Sunday before we left for church. I figured getting a roast in the oven was something I could handle! And yes, I had to do it by myself since Ryan has meetings before church. As we sat down to eat Kessiah said "You finally cooked something!" It did taste good to eat some real food (instead of spaghettios, mac & cheese, bread and butter, yogurt or my favorite...a bowl of cold cereal) I would love to eat more real food if I could get someone to come and make me some every day!

Logan went to nursery at church for the first time yesterday. He did great! Thankfully, they have 2 nursery classes (older and younger) so Logan's class is young and few! There were only 4 kids and 2 adults. Great ratio!

Unfortunately, my stomach has been a little queasy today. At least I'm having fewer and fewer queasy I'm mostly just tired!
