Right before Christmas my mom and dad came down for the weekend to lend a little hand.  My dad brought a truck load of insulation and sheetrock so that we could start finishing part of our basement to add a little room and my mom and I decided to leave the babies behind and take the older girls for a much needed girls weekend out.  We left the boys, got babysitters for the babies and headed to a fun hotel about 2 hours away.  They have this really fun water park that we had a blast at.  We shopped, at out, and went swimming until our hearts were content.  The girls had so much fun and I enjoyed my weekend with them.  Matt ended up getting really sick so my dad and some friends ended up hanging most of the sheetrock.  Thank you to everyone who made that weekend possible for me and the girls.  And a special thanks to Mom and Dad....We love you! :)

Here are a few pictures of us at the water park.

Life as we know it!

Well, this has been our life in a "NUTSHELL" for the past few months.  Pure CrAzYnEsS....!!!!  This picture sums it up.....(from right to left) Lexie is screaming, Rylee sucking her thumb, Maddox trying to escape, Alyssa posing, Shilah picking her nose, and Brooklynn playing her gameboy and ignoring everyone else.  Don't you just love it?

MIssing In Action

Okay...  I have obviously been missing in action for a long time.  So much has happened over the past few months and I have been super busy.  I know, no excuses.  I just wanted to let everyone know (if there is even any one still interested in our blog), that I am coming back and get ready for some fun updates on our family!
