Doesnt Cooper look so thrilled to be taking a picture with the girls?? :)

Brynlee Mae...getting so big!

Wow today was a great day, so nice outside! It was perfect weather for snowmen and snowballs!

And of course a nice enough day for a few photos!

Got snow?!?!......

Well if you don't we sure do! Crazy how we went from no snow to TONS of snow. I love winter, so do Chad and the kids...but I could've started out with 2 in...then 2 more inches...etc etc. Oh well it is ND after all! Plus it makes me feel all nice and cozy!

Heres a pic of the kids enjoying the first snow fall of the year...Kobey looks like shes asking me why shes standing there with that kid! Ha!

Safe travels for those of you traveling this weekend...I hope my parents are able to fly out Thursday morning...anywho Happy Thanksgiving!

First Day of School...

Whew! We all made it through the first day of school! I can NOT believe I have two kids in school. It makes me feel kinda old...not having any kids in daycare anymore (this is kind of mean but then I see some people that are alot older than me and have their oldest just starting kindergarten and it makes me feel a little better, ya know that I will be the young mom like my mom was...hehe), but I LOVE not having a daycare bill during the school year!!

Cooper has the same teacher as Kobey did her kindergarten year. She loved Mrs. Baumgarten and I know Cooper will too! Thanks Erin for making my kids' first year a little easier on me! We're so lucky to have you as a teacher and a friend!!

Cooper told us this morning that he did not sleep a wink last night...just to nervous he said, but he quickly got over it. Chad tried to hold his hand crossing the street today and he said "dad quit it". Sigh...hes growing up! Then lets move on to Kobey Jean...she gave me the "omg mother...quit taking pictures of me and get out of my room you're embarrassing me" look. I knew exactly what she meant and quickly left! :)

I have so many pictures that I should upload from this summer, but theres just not enough time in a day...or tonight. I am typing right now and trying to watch the Real Housewives of New Jersey. I can NOT get enough of all things Jersey...neither can Chad. I know he doesnt like to admit it but he watches these shows with me every night!!

Lets see what else is going on in our lives...nothing other than school now which is really nice. It slows us down big time. Gives us much more of a set schedule thats for sure. Thursday night we have family pictures. Im really excited because I found the coolest place to take our pictures....but I wish I was 15 lbs lighter! Hmmm...maybe Miss Ria could liquify me enough to make me appear 15 lbs lighter!! Maybe?!?!?!

Ok I have to go now...I cant miss another minute of this show down thats gonna go down tonight on Real Housewives!!!

Summer Fun...

Finally we have had some great summer weather! I swear it seems like we haven't had a summer like this in so so long! We've totally been taking advantage of this weather too. The kids have turned into little fish this summer. That pool is definetly hands down the best money we've spent in a long time. :)

Even dad got in on the fun! (We have a hard time getting him to swim with us for some reason...can you say party pooper?!)

Kobey Jean & Gracie Rae...

Well its Monday night and I am soooooo EXCITED to watch the new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey!! Anybody else watch it?? I am addicted! Even Chad watches it with me. Seriously he does. Teresa on that show is my fav...well one of my favs, Caroline comes in at a close 2nd. I just love Teresa cause shes so stinkin when she was talking about tattoos..she was asked if she'd ever get one and this was her response and I quote "would you put a bumper sticker on a Bentley?". Love it! She makes me chuckle!
Ok well my kids are upstairs yelling for me to get them some stuff nose medicine...poor things woke up today with head colds. I sure hope they can both play T-ball and softball tomorrow morning! We are getting ready to end the season.
All for now...maybe more in a few weeks...if you're lucky! ;)

One more pic...

Just had to add one more. They will NOT sit this close to one another very often so I had to take advantage of it!

Fun on a Tuesday night...

I took a break from cooking supper to see what they were all doing outside. Good thing I brought my camera with! :)

Even grandpa stopped by to say hi! I love seeing him with my kids. He is the greatest man I know (Chad comes in at a close 2nd)! Love this pic of them!! *SIGH*

Time goes by way too fast....

Seriously...time does go by way too fast! I was going through old pictures and ran across this one of the kids 3 summers ago. Look at how little they were! I mean I know they are growing up and they are obviously getting taller etc etc, but its like I cant believe it! *SIGH*
I wish they were both this little again.....

I love to read my sister-in-laws blog. She writes like everyday, sooo unlike me! Wish I could but Im just not good at putting my thoughts in writting. Anyways, I found this "saying" on her blog and I feel really lucky because Chad is this total package and he reminds me of it everyday! Oh how I love him sooo! I just told him the other day I think I love him more today then I did on the day we got married. Is that possible?! I think...NO I KNOW it is!
I Love You Chaddie!
Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot
Who calls you back when you hang up on him
Who will stay awake just to watch you sleep
Wait for the guy who kisses your forehead
Who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats
Who holds your hand in front of his friends
Wait for the one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you
Who turns to his friends and says ...."thats her."
Oh and PS...I posted TWO days in a row! Hows that Jen??

Ya ya ya....

Thats what I say to my friend Jen...everytime she comes home it gets brought up one way or another that I NEVER ever post anything! And everytime she gives me grief what do I do?? I go and post something within the next day or two just for her! Doesn't that make you feel special Jenny with a Y!! :)

I can't just write something and not post pics right? (Ya know whats weird, everytime Jen is home we never take pics with eachother! Hmmm I think thats going to be my mission next time we are together!) Anywho... So below are some pictures that I took the beginning of March of my kids along with my brothers baby girl. Isn't she just the cutest?!?! My kids are totally in love with her! As am I, so fun to be around a baby girl. I swear everyone I know for the past year or so has had nothing but boys! Enjoy!
