Glad They Only Come One At a Time

We survived our adventure and I have to say I could not have done it without my super husband. Here are a few ways Christian helped out:

First, when in the car Christian would tell all the kids we were in a space ship and our mission was to attack all the aliens (the other vehicles). You should have heard the special effects Christian can do, I have to say I was quite impressed and I laughed even harder listening to Benton try and mimic his Daddy.

Second, Christian took the mornings on. They kids would yell at the bedroom door "CHRISTIAN, CHRISTIAN" and he would always get up and talk them in to being quiet until I got up.

Thirdly, the floors have never looked better than when Christian would sweep up our daily messes. I loved his help after dinner.

We are glad to be home and Benton is thrilled to have his mom back to himself!

One Week Down

When my parents would go out of town when I was little I was the one they would get the call about saying I was home sick. So I guess I deserve this. 2 babies sick with strep. We have been to the doctors twice within the last 24 hours and everyone at the clinic knows our story. I can tell they are wondering how we will survive, but we are thanks to good neighbors and friends. Wish us luck for the next 5 days!

Why We Will Be Busy...

Hello all! I realize I have posted in a while, so I thought I would give a quick update. We had a great Christmas and fun vacation in Arizona, which I will post pictures later.
Christian and I will be busy for the next 11 days watching some pretty cute kids. We will be having a Benton who is 1, a darling 2 year old girl, and two busy boys ages 3 and 4. There parents went on a cruise to Europe and we started our time here bright and early at 6:30 this morning. So far the day has consisted of: Benton discovered his nose has a hole in it, great fun for Mom! Then I found Benton and the little girl playing in the toilet water, yum. We have been through 2 meals, major messes, and I am now enjoying some quiet time as they are all down for a quick nap.
Wish us luck, and any suggestions would be great on how to keep up with them all!
