A little Bit of This & a Little Bit of That

Hello Hello!  Can you believe it's already the end of June?  Yikes, where does the time go?

Finally not a crazy long post with a million pictures to catch up on.  Here's what we've been up to:

Still lovin' on her brother every chance she can get.  Especially now, as she wasn't allowed to go near him last week when she had Hand-Foot-and-Mouth, yuck!  Also, yes, still wearing diapers, because I don't have the energy to potty train.  Although, I might not have a choice.

This weekend she has been enjoying getting herself dressed.  She came down this morning very certain that she would wear underwear today.  She wants it, I don't.  But I guess this might be the best time, as Reid is off Monday and Tuesday, so maybe???

An oldie, but a goodie.  This was from a few weeks ago when the Christensens had us over for a get together with former co-workers.  The kiddos enjoyed playing on their hammock!
 a couple of weekends ago there was a crazy storm Sunday morning.  It followed us in to Church. Luckily we made it inside before it hit and then it was done by the time church was over.
 Piles of hail
 Chillaxin' at it's finest!
 Lots of divide and conquer this summer, "You take the Bigs, I'll stay with the Littles"  Reid got to take the Bigs to Libby's t-ball.  He was able to help on the field and Sally snap a cute picture.
 Supporters of one another...most of the time
 It was also picture night!
 She has a great team and great coaches.  Fun to be on the same team as the Peyton siblings!
 Neighborhood Biker Gang
 After dinner park time with Daddy so Mommy could clean up in peace and put the little mister to bed.  Libby also wanted to show daddy her new trick--she can do the monkey bars solo!
 Tornado everywhere she goes
 Mason's been going through his 4 month sleep regression.  It's great fun.  Not really.  Paired with it is the fact he can roll.  Sally helped calm him and patted him back to sleep for his nap.  I think the worst is over and we're starting to head in the right direction. Hopefully!
 Rainy day painting nails.  Watching a quick show while we were waiting for them to dry
 Bob Books on the Kindle! Big Sister helping to sound out the words--benefits of a big family!
 The girls wanted to have another sale.  Complete with a yard sign this time.
 Daddy's a champ on the weekend, often helping out with errands.  He took the girls for a Target run after Mass, while I put Mason down for a nap!
 Helpers making Tater Tot Casserole, because it was Fall like weather last weekend
 I don't want to forget this stage of life.  As I'm sure in the not so distance future, I will long for these days.
 My hands might be quite full, but you should see my heart.  Most days go pretty well, until 5pm hits and daddy's stuck in traffic, dinner needs to be made, the girls are starting to pick on each other and Mason's ready to eat and go to bed.  Pretty much the perfect storm...
 Someone recently said to me, "It's one thing to hear you have 4 children, ages 8, 5.5, 2.5 and 1/3.  It's a whole 'nother to see it in person."
 We had a fun morning with friends!  9 children and 3 Mamas.  It went surprisingly well.  Not pictured were the babies, Mason & Mia.
"Squirrels? I'll get 'em with my gun!"

Father's Day 2017

Time keeps on flying by.  10 years ago we got engaged.  My oh my a lot has changed since then!

The girls are proud owners of fidget spinners.  Sally bought one for she and Libby and we got one for Emma so she didn't feel left out.  They're pretty fun.

No baby was injured on the filming of this video ;)

 "Wear my hat like Daddy's"
 This was Daddy's when he was little
 Watering her tomato plant
 Hollywood! Did I mention on here that the kiddos were on the Jason's show a while back?  Check out The Jason Show's facebook page and you can watch the clip on the kiddos at the park with him.
 Gray Grizzly, up to bat.  Go Libs Go
 Park a holics


Loves his tummy
 Libby styled my hair
 A gift from Kari, it finally fits!
 Look at that hair...the best thing I did for this girl was cut it
 My girl on 2nd
 A great read.  Enjoying our summer book study with church friends!
 In honor of Father's Day.  Sheila text this the other night.  I just love it.  That's my dad!  I'm right behind him, probably similar age to Sally and/or Libby!
 "and I sought for a man among them who should build up the wall and stand in the breach before me for the Lord." -Ezekiel 22:30

He is our strong and faithful leader.  We all adore him and are forever grateful for all that he sacrifices, to provide for us.  Our children are richly blessed because he is their father.  We love him, always!

Craigmile Crew, strong selfie game ;)

I think I'm caught up, yahoo!
