What the hell.....why not start to blog everyday and document all the wonderful, and not so wonderful things that happen in my life.
Doug is putting together our playground fence outside!! This will save my sanity and house this summer. Right now...there is only a gate and 2 poles up. But soon..I will be able to take the kids outside by myself! There won't be any running away from me and trying to visit the neighbors. It's going to cover 200 square feet (i think) so the kids have plenty of room to run and play!! I am so excited for this project to get done!!!!
The little guys have hit there terrible two's at 21 months. If i say no to them....they say it back to me. If I put them in the corner....they all go sit in the corner together. I spend the whole two minute taking the other two out...while keeping the bad on in. The worst thing about this age is the team work that they've accomplished. One taking me into the kitchen and the others diving behind the couch to play with the plugs. One little guy asks for a snack and the second and third rip off their diapers and streak through the house. I know it will get worse before it gets better but I am determined to have a good summer!!! Potty training is coming up and to be honest...I'd rather poke my eyes out with a dull knife but it needs to be done. They are already getting naked....why not have them pee while they are at it? Any advice anyone has on that subject would be greatly appreciated!!!!

I'm in the middle of painting my kitchen. Barn red. Yep....finally I'm getting some color into this house!!! I will post pics when it's complete.
My Aunt gave me matching curtains, bedspread and a shower curtain for my bedroom. Its a very nice gesture.....but they are bright yellow with pink flowers. All made out of the exact same material. The curtains blend right into the bedspread that have decorative pillows that all look exactely the same!!!! Plus.....sun glasses are required when looking directly intot the room. It's bright.
The little guys are talking so much more now. They are learning what animals are what and what they say. "If you happy and you know it" is their favorite activity right now and as long as I keep their pj's on backwards.....nap time isn't a disaster anymore.
Aaron...again...got straight A's on his report card. So proud of him!!! Baseball is starting back up but almost all of his practices have been cancelled due to rain. We are still fighting over his lack of ambition to do his chores. He has no problem doing them....as long as I remind him. I'm over it. Just do it!!! (sorry nike for stealing your logo.....it works)
I've been watching too much TV but I'm stuck at home all the time and this is what I have to do. I have a new obsession with Gordon Ramsey. I just think he's brilliant!!! Still love dancing with the stars and American idol. ABC's Thursday night is amazing with ugly betty, grey's and private practice. Hate when they involve children though. Drives me bonkers!!! Aaron and I watch Survivor together and say that's out weekly vacation. (I hate coach and want to stab him)
Hopefully the post will come more often now!! maybe someday I'll get good enough to post pics to my blogs. Just don't have the ambition yet.

Today was the party for my grandparents 62nd wedding anniversary!!! Every year they take the whole family (today it was 20) to the Villa Grande in Butler, Pa. The babies were horrible due to bad timing of naps and pure stubborness. All in all.....it was a nice time. Here is a pic of my grandparents. It's not the best...but like I said...horrible little boys at the time. I did put a nicer pic of my granparents at a previous party. They are party animals!!!

After the little ones went to bed...Aaron and Doug watched football and doing the male bonding while I tried to recoup. I did catch Doug sleep eating....twice!! He woke up both times with banana bread in his hands. It was pretty funny!!!
Hopefully today will be better. We are going to the farm to celebrate my dad's birthday. Happy Birthday Dad!!!

Doug and I moved the family up to Eau Claire to a beautiful new home!!! I gave up my machinist job to stay home with Aaron and the babies and Doug is a Butcher. Aaron is nine and in the 3rd grade. He is super funny and so mature for his age. He just got straight A's for the second time in a row! He plays baseball and football and wants to play basketball. Coby, Micah and Peyton will be 17 months on the 15Th of Jan. They are walking, running, eating, starting to talk and unfortunately biting. It is so fun to watch them play together. Each one does have his own personality. Peyton is the oldest. He is bashful yet defiant. Micah is the middle trip and he is the cuddle bug but likes to push his brothers to the ground. Coby is the baby and is the most eager to learn new things, but so much that he gets into everything to check them out!!
I hope this blog will help me keep everyone up to date about life in my home...(don't get too much time to visit).
