Pics from Our Week

I love having a gas stove! I never thought I'd like it more than an electric, but when I set my loaves of bread on the top, they rise sky-high! It cooks faster too! I bought a 2# bag of yeast a year and two months ago and keep it in the freezer, taking out a little to thaw every couple of weeks. That $7 bag has gone a long way and will probably last a few more months even though I bake a lot!

Playing outside on a warm Sunday afternoon. We love having our own yard! Jer even tried riding the fourwheeler by himself. He used to always say "I kared" (I'm scared) but he enjoys it now!

The moon on January 10th at sunset was supposed to be the biggest moon of 2009.

One of Ali's friends got a huge, blow-up jumping pit for Christmas so we went to her house to try it out. (It's set up indoors)

This gorgeous blanket was made by my roomie in college, Ashley Parker. She's made all of the kids one and they are amazing!

Justus got to go swimming for the first time this week. He's our only non-water-loving kid so far and he usually only takes a one or two minute bath and cries, but he didn't seem to mind the pool too much. He's trying to figure out who's holding him. (Photo cropped since I don't want any friends mad at me for putting pics of them in their swimsuits up on my blog!)

My kids sure love to swim!

Always wrestling around together! Yes, Jer has a hair thing in his hair. He enjoys trying out having a pigtail now and then!

The beautiful, real gold locket my hubby surprised me with as a Christmas gift. It has space for 4 photos.

Lovin' his exersaucer these days!

Our little darling

Justus tries rice cereal. He didn't make as many funny faces as our other kids. He is such an eater! He scarfs it down twice a day now!

I am curious what your kids birth dates are if you don't mind. I believe our kids are about the same age.
mine are 3/20/05- W
8/9/06-Super N
& 4/9/08- Baby J
Just another mom with 3 under 3!
Take Care!

Cute pictures! I wish we would get some days in the 50s :) Enjoy them!

On the 3 3 and under I thought it wasn't so bad when the baby couldn't move. Then the baby started to move and then it was hard for a long time, but now that he is 19 months it is a lot easier. Maybe that also has to do with the fact that I am now 6 months past my 5 consecutive years of pregnancy and nursing!

Hang in there, you are doing great!

We saw that same huge moon rising here in MN on Saturday night. It was beautiful!

Justus has the greatest expressions!

You have no snow! I'm jealous!

I am jealous that you get to go outside. We have foot upon foot of snow and temperatures falling into the single digits and below! Okay, baby J is a week older than H...when did you put him in the saucer? I've been trying to remember when I can take it out. I think she'd LOVE it.
