Hello Ladybug, please stay and eat all of our aphids, you are more than welcome to invite your friends to come over and eat too, we have plenty.

And this is Kate, we love to play cards, you know go fish, crazy eights etc etc. Usually she has to lay all of her cards down in front of her for all to see, so, for her birthday I found this cool card holder and this was supposed to help her keep her cards more to herself , this is how it goes -
Kate "do you have any sammy the sloths (diego - go fish)"
Me "No, go fish"
Kate after she picks up a card "oh! I got rescue pack"

Not Ambitious enough....yet....

So Kate and I had this conversation yesterday.

Kate: I know lets get a baby brother (she kind of says it cute, like bruder)

Me : And what would you call him?

Kate: Xander

Me: Oh, thats nice

Kate: I know lets give this one back to Jesus and get a bruder

Me: Which one?

Kate: Sara

Well lets just say Eric and I aren't quite ready yet for another, which we are actually convinced would be a boy, and unfortunately for Kate we love Sara too much to send her back.

But in the event you were wondering what it would be like to have 5 kids, one a year here are some pics from when I watched Brooke's kids last week. Including my kids the ages were 5, 4, 2 (almost 3), 1 (almost 2) and 11 months. I think it could be possible but maybe not recommended, I am definitely not that ambitious, poor Baylie, I never quite got around to feeding her with all the other chaos. I hope the kids had fun because it was fun, Brooke's kids like to play hard and that suits us because mine do too, check out Sara wrestling Luke and Kate wrestling both.

The choas? well I think my baby would like me better, unfortunately Baylie wasn't to thrilled with me but thats because I don't get to hang out with Brooke too much these days and so she doesn't really know me, plus she had just woken up and was hungry but I was in the midst of feeding the other kids, mopping up spilt drink and trying to keep my little streaker kid under control. Note: see Sara taking off her pants? Its her new thing to strip herself of pants and diaper and so we are making an attempt at potty training because thats the only other option when you aren't wearing a diaper.

The Grill is on

The weather is warm to say the least, its staying light outside longer and this can only mean one thing, summer is on its way, and so we are eating ourselves some summer foods. I can't say I am great with the grill but I am trying and there is nothing better than eating grilled food. Last night we had Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs, I made them a few times last year but these were the best I've ever made, if you want to try them I substitute zucchini for the pineapple and marinade it along with the chicken and mushrooms, I used cremini mushrooms which is why I think they were extra tasty and I used Oscar Meyer turkey bacon instead of regular. I think the change in bacon really made the recipe better as the regular stuff is quite fatty which causes the grill to flame up a lot and char the veggies but I felt like the leaner turkey bacon let all the food really cook well. Alright enough of this foodie post, hope you try these yummy bites, if you don't have a grill your welcome to come eat with us, just let me know.

Kate - Happy 4th birthday!
March 17th
We love you so much. You're fun and feisty, a little tom boy, cute as can be and just a little girly. Sara loves it when you read her stories and play with her, we love it when you make her giggle. You are such a great big sister. The bravest little 4yr old ever and extra smart. Thank-you for being so patient and forgiving with your parents, we prayed and waited for so long for a sweet baby and you were the answer to our prayers.
