A day in the life of Crazy

It's been so long I don't know where to start. So I will start with now and maybe I will fill in the blank... someday.  Travis is the SRO (School Resource Office) so he as all of Christmas brake off.  Which I am so grateful for.  I love having him around and so do our kids.  He has never been able to take time off just because, we usually have plans or going on vacation but this time NOTHING.  It has been a crazy year at at the SO and he hasn't been able to take any time off all year and now he has a hole bunch that he will lose if he doesn't use it. So we have sat around with nothing to do. We have slept in everyday and now with our kids getting older they like to sleep in too!! It as been so nice!!

 Today I made 5 batches of play-dough I thought it would keep the kids entertained so I could get something done but by the time I got it all done and cleaned up the kids were done playing and had moved on to the next thing.  I thought it was a good idea but it didn't play out the way I thought it would. The kids had fun but I didn't get anything done. Story of my life!

Christmas was good. We have really tried to cut back we want to get out of debt this is the first year we have been about to buy Christmas with cash.  To some that doesn't sound like much but to us with 6 children and my desire to stay home for the time being, it is really hard. Someday I will work but right now I want to be home and to honest I will never really work. I want to always be there for my kids and even more for my husband.  On occasion Travis will come home and need to run to Fillmore or he might have 10 minutes to grab a drink, I want to be able to drop everything and go with him. He is so important to me and I want it to always stay that way.
 I am really loving where I am at in my life right now.  My babies are 3 and my oldest is 13.  The day after Christmas we left the kids home and took of to have lunch with some friend was great.  Travis and I can have adult time and not have to worry about leaving the babies home. Janie is so much help she is 11 and the best baby sitter in the world seriously... There are not a lot of adults that I would dare leave 2 sets of twins but for an hour of so she is awesome! The lord has a plan for me and I am still trying to figure it out. I might never know for sure but I do know the lord as a lot of faith in me. I can't seem to figure out why he thinks I can manage all this craziness! I love my kids so much.  They are amazing kids and I know the lord loves them even more than me.  I can feel all the responsibility the lord as given me and I pray everyday that I can live up to challenge.

So we are getting more and more excited. Janie who I thought would be so excited is I think a little overwhelmed just like the rest of us. A couple of months after I had our boys Travis and I took Tayt and Janie to the movie after the movie we stopped for ice cream. All they could say is "this is so fun without the twins." I think my older two kids are a little worried they will be put in the back ground again and I really don't want that to happen. I think that is why they aren't as excited as we had hoped for. My boys have no clue what is about to change. The other night the twins came and sat on the couch by me. Lately they have been hitting me on my belly to get my attention. Jared started to hit me and I told them they had to be soft and not hit the babies. Next thing they stated to rub my belly and then kissing it. It was so cute just then Dave stands up and says"mom will you kiss the babies in my belly?" I just laughed and kissed his belly. Travis is getting more excited we have started to talk about names we have some we like but none that Travis likes together. I like AVA and AVERY but Travis thinks its to close together but then I remind him my dad is a twin and they are DAVE and DAN. We will have to see we aren't DUE till AUG. 20th but I am hopping to make it to AUG. 6thish :) That would make me 38 weeks and that is when I can have them in Delta. So I only have about 17 weeks. That doesn't sound every long!! I am going to say one more thing I have had alot of people congratulate us and I am so grateful for them but, if I have one more person come up to me and give me a hug and tell me that they feel sorry for me I am going to scream. Don't feel sorry for us we are blessed more then we could have ever imagined and I am so grateful for being able to have not just one set of twins but two. Our Heavenly Father has a plan that we might not be able to see it yet but I know that he has one. I have faith that as long as I am trying to be the best mother I can and doing all I can to raise my kids in the gospel that he will give us more blessing then we could have ever imagined. So don't feel bad for us we are a little over whelmed but THIS TO SHALL PASS!!! And the Lord never gives anyone more then they can handle!!!

O my

I had my ultrasound yesterday and.... I am have TWINS again. Holy cow I have heard of people that have two sets of twins but I have never seen any of them. Do they just go into hiding till they turn four. :) I hope not cause I wouldn't survive sitting around my house waiting for my kids to grow up. I think I only got like three hours of sleep last night between already being uncomfortable and not knowing where to start even thinking about having twins again. Travis works SO HARD so I can stay home with our kids and to think we are adding two more let alone TWO GIRLS. I'm afraid that I will never see him. Although by the time they get here he my not want to be around anyway lol. I guess looking at the bright side we kinda all ready know what to expect. Really I don't know what is harder to wrap my mind around that I'm have twins again or that I'm going to have 6 KIDS and I'm not even 30. Wish us luck!!!!!!

Count Down to CHRISTMAS!!
We made these for FHE I wasn't really sure that Tayt would want to or that it would be easy enough for the twin BUT we had so much fun. Travis had to work so he came home for a minute but for the most part it was just me and the kids. We decorated the tree first Tayt didn't really want to help so he watched. But after we made our Christmas chains we watch the classic "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" the old version. The twins loved it, we have watched it just about every day since. The Twins laugh so hard when the dog is dress up as a reindeer.

My cute boys the are so fun!!!

Janie wanted to show off the tree it's not much of a tree but he is sure proud of it!!!


Jared didn't want anything to do with Santa he stood behind me the hole time it was so funny. I even tried to offer him candy if he would sit on his lap he wanted nothing to do with him.

Dave on the other hand could have sat there all day. He told Santa about his new shoes about how he wants a bideo game (video game). He told Santa that his brother wants horses. I finally told him we needed to go he didn't want to, it was cute.
Janie was cute she told Santa she wanted a DSi so she could play games and take pictures. She is so sweet I don't know what I would do with out her.

Tayt was kinda shy which I thought was funny he isn't normally that way. He also wants a DSi and a puppy. My little brother Jace, his dog had puppy's, they are way cute so I gave in and told him he could have one if he could take care of it for a hole week. We'll see what happens?!?!

You are a great dad although (I knew you would be before we got married) you love our kids and show them how much you love them everyday. You work so hard so I can stay home with our kids.
Thank you for all that you do for us.
