We’ve Been Having Fun

Life is pretty good right now. Lots of things are going right. We’ve all been sick for about three weeks (Allan and I think we’ve all had the flu) but we’re handling it well and pushing on through and having fun anyway.

I’d like some sleep, but even being tired I’m going to soak up the absolute craziness that is having four little kids. Life will never be so chaotic and crazy fun as it is right now. I am going to miss it so much!

I mean, I change at least 10 diapers a day, I make meals constantly, the dishes are literally never ending, even for an hour (and our dishwasher is broken so it’s all by hand, baby!) I’ve coughed enough the last month to last a lifetime, my back is killing me from carrying around a baby and toddler so much and the laundry breeds at night, but… it’s SO GREAT. I have so many people to love on every single day. 5 of them! Right here in my house. Smiles and laughter and cuddling and their little voices. I love it!

I told the girls to hold hands and hold up their chalk for a picture and got this:

Allan stayed home from work. He was on a conference call meeting in the front room so to keep the noise level down I took the older girls outside while the little two slept and we did our school in the yard.

We’re reading The Wizard of Oz (yet again) and I thought it’d be fun to dress up and act out the story.

It was a blast. And things got crazy.

  • I can tell you have really found your groove as a mom to 4. šŸ™‚ You guys are having a blast for sure. I have been thinking a lot lately too about how when my kids are older I will miss the craziness that is my life. It is something we tend to take for granted but our lives will never be this full. We are so blessed that God trusted us with these little people to love and raise aren't we?

    I do have a question for ya. Are the categories gone for good? I tend to look through your food category because I always need ideas for my kids meals and I am just wondering if the categories are gone for good.

  • Your family is the cutest!! I can totally hear Brooklyn laughing in that one picture with yall on the grass doing school together! šŸ˜‰ Oh and look at you in that witch costume!! šŸ™‚ I just love yall! šŸ™‚ Your family looks like you have the most fun ever…even in the midst of all the chaos! I needed a dose of your optimism today! šŸ˜‰ Love these pictures!

  • I pray y'all are on the mead. I love the Wizard of Oz and I think it's great that y'all act out the story. Sierra makes a cute Dorthy and Brooklyn a pretty fairy princess. Your witch costume is great!! I love your expression and your cool kick!

    Our house is chaos also with having a preteen and a preschooler. It's never a dull moment in our house but like I tell my husband everyday I love the noise and mayhem because I feel so blessed to be a mom after so many years of fertility issues.

  • Praying that you guys make a full recovery from the flu. We had it for 2 weeks also,and both girls were out sick for that time being. I was blessed that they shared it with me,no not really.lol
    Praying that the kiddos are protected from not recieving these germs. Its no fun and knocks the life out of you.

  • Love the Wizard of Oz photos – especially the one of Glinda running away from the kick-boxing Wicked Witch of the East. šŸ™‚ Looks like a very fun afternoon! Your children will never forget these fun days…or the incredible love they're surrounded by!

    Hope you're all feeling better soon!!

  • What a fun time! So glad you've found your groove as well, what a great feeling! And I hope you all feel better and kick that sickness to the curb for good, it's never fun. šŸ™‚
