Monster Jam!! Woohoo!

Monster Jam was a monster success. Eli, McKenzie, Josh, Kyle, and I got to go see the monster trucks last night. They started off a little sluggish but after a junk food snack they became energized. They were up clapping and dancing and playing with their monster trucks they brought with them. They really did seem to enjoy themselves. Eli kept on talking about all the different trucks and who they were. You could just see him watch everything they were doing and his facial expressions were hysterical. If there was a big crash he would have his hand over his mouth in shock. It was a great time, for families with a lot of boys I believe we may be doing this for years to come.

The twins were lucky enough to get to stay home with Grandma McIntyre. They had a lot of fun playing and getting spoiled. They are still doing well and no Mom has not been able to switch them to big beds yet, I know it will come soon but just not ready. They are still causing havoc wherever we go. They are really enjoying coloring these days and enjoy sitting in the playroom to do this. (this is our designated coloring room) I did have one day someone trying to sneak coloring books and crayons into the kitchen. So when I took that away there was a major fit and little did I know I missed one crayon. I had a lovely brown line all over my white kitchen cabinets. Just a little extra art for the house.

Well we hope all is well and below are some pictures from Monster Jam!

This was our favorite truck that night.

Yes We Are Still Here

Sorry for the delay in posts but it has been a very hectic few weeks. With a very sick weekend and two play off games after that things have been a little crazy around here. Three of the five of us got a 24 hour bug of vomiting. It was not so much fun but at least it did not last too long and it was over the weekend. The big news is that Eli has been doing gymnastics since Christmas.

He loves it!!! He is very good at all the stuff he does, however he is a little impatient with the teachers. He just wants to keep on going and he gets frustrated when they make him slow down. He is doing really well and enjoys his alone time with one of us. After watching him with other 3 and 4 year olds I am seeing that he is getting so big. He is all of a sudden too tall for his 3T shirts, the pants have been short for a while. It is pretty sad that he is getting so big.

The twins are doing well, we are preparing for big boy beds. I say preparing because every time the day draws near that we said we are going to do it I back out. It is really taking a toll on me to think that my babies are getting that big. Yes they are ready, but I am not!! The twins are doing very well except for some temper tantrums here and there but we are doing well.

Attached are pictures from gymnastics, up next is Monster Jam so stay tuned for pictures, ok just kidding pictures for some reason are not working. I will try later.
