I thought I would pick some Summery, warm pictures for our FFF since it has been so cold here. These pictures were taken in the backyard by the pool and watergarden. Aiden loves to be out there every chance he can get. Smelling mommy's flowers
I'm not putting my hands in the water
mommy, I promise.

Just chillin mom.

Playing in the snow

The kiddos were out of school today due to ice and the little snow we got and daddy decided he would play hooky from work too so we decided to play in the snow and build Aiden's first snowman. Poor little guy looks like a marshmellow.

All of his clothes were layered and mismatched

and he didn't have any boots so we put his old leather

tennis shoes on.

House divided. Mom likes University of Louisville

so we have quite the multitude of cheering

in the house. I love my big blue eyed and brown

eyed babies.

He wasn't to sure about the snow at first

He helped daddy make his snowman

but when I put the oreos on for eyes and

the carrot on for his nose he flipped out and

was scared of

The gang minus daddy...Aiden had to keep

an eye on the snowman to make sure it

didn't get him. We had to keep the dog off of it

so she wouldn't eat the cookies.

The pond in the backyard that was frozen over...

poor fishies.

Don't ask...sometimes I worry about

this kid

Useing the neighbors driveway to sled down

I look at him in this picture and I just want to

pick him up and hug him to pieces.

Boring weekend and Dateline

We had a very boring, but much needed, relaxing weekend. Last week was not a very good week with Dominique being in the hospital with set in his knee and swelled it up the size of a balloon. After being admitted to the hospital and surgery he is now doing much better thank God. OH by the way they are pretty sure that he contacted this from being in a dirty gym while in training....God only knows what else could be contacted in there.

We spent our weekend just hanging out since it was to daggone cold out to do anything but stay warm in the house. We also had a going away get together for one of my nephew's who is going away for a few months. We will miss you Jacob but do your best and time will fly by.

So did anyone watch Dateline? what are your thoughts on it? It breaks my heart to think that they make Guatemala out to be a baby stealing country due to the few corrupt so called lawyers they have. What about all of us that went through legitimate agencies and waited and waited to bring our precious babies home?

This picture is quite scary but daddy says he

thinks we look cute. Mommy was a slacker

and didn't take her makeup off the night before.

Wanted to share something funny Aiden did the other day. We have been trying to teach Aiden how to say Love You so the other day Jody, my husband, was whispering to Aiden and said if you want to make mommy feel really good and make her smile turn around and tell her you love her. Aiden got this look on his face and turned and looked at me and smiled and said "Cheese". I guess he thought when we mentioned smiling that we were talking about pictures so he just said Cheese instead of attempting the Love you. We laughed so hard....such a goofy little guy.

I have posted this picture in my Christmas blog but I have to say it is definitely a favorite of mine. A picture of my oldest and youngest babies. The lights of my life, my reason for living, my reason for facing another day, my world, my EVERYTHING. I love you guys.

Kelsey got this towel wrap for Christmas and Aiden off course had to try it out. He is so goofy.

I think this is hilarious. Aiden is always doing something goofy with his racetrack...making ramps for the cars and things. He kept running the cars over daddy so daddy got the bright idea to lay Aiden under the track to see what he would do. The look on his face was priceless...he just layed there and laughed.

New Years.

Since we had cabin fever from being sick and the majority of the kids were feeling better we decided to take the kiddos to Great Wolf Lodge for New Years. They had a blast playing in the indoor water park and enjoying the New Years festivities the lodge offered. Kelsey, Aiden, and Clara's friend Lauren
hanging out in the bunk beds in their room
Looks like Dominique is molesting the
door...he was actually reading the
hotel policy....LOL.

These pictures are from both our Christmas at home and Christmas at my parents.Our Christmas trees with the kitty

The look on his face is priceless here. If you can't
tell what it is it is tickle me first he was
afraid of him but now he plays with him and trys
to mimic some of his

Ugghhhhh the fish tent that ate my living room and
my baby. I got the bright idea to get this for Aiden
but didn't realize how big it was. Aiden hung out
in here quite a bit when he was sick.
