Miss Avery and her sissies

A week ago, Avery and I went to visit Jo and Aunt Katy. Avery always has fun with Jo Jo. My cousin Mo was there with her kids.
Avery probably torturing the poor Burgler to death.

Oh yes, the Barbie jeep is back in full force people.

Lately my little miss Avery has been getting into quite a bit of trouble. Today she took the lotion and smothered it all over Layla and Mallory's hair...
You may not be able to tell, but she looks like a grease head


As does Layla...
Today she really played hard. We went over to my mom and dad's house and she ran through the sprinklers with Belle (their dog) and wore herself out. We got home, I made dinner, and by the time we sat down to eat, well, just see for yourself!

And I swear, I try very hard to get that hair out of her face, but she keeps pulling rubber bands/barretts out of her hair!! This was shortly after a bath though. Lucky she didn't get food in it. LOL. It's been fun so far this summer. We're looking forward to lots of play time with cousins and friends. See you all around!

Just a few updates

I took Layla and Mallory in for their 6 month check up on Friday. So far so good! They look "strong and healthy" the doc says. Mallory was 15lb 6oz, and Layla was 13lb 11oz, so she is falling a little behind lol. Now she is almost two pounds smaller then Mallory. I'm pretty sure it's because that kid is in constant motion! She wants to go go go! Layla is working on crawling, she wants to completely skip the scooting stage I guess, while Mal is scooting up a storm. She's got the army crawl going on pretty well.

So there you have it. My three girls are growing too fast! I'm dreading what it's going to be like in the house here in a short while when I have two babies crawling too fast for me to keep up with! My brother suggested I bunji them together so they can't go anywhere... was funny at first, but then I started thinking hmmm... Kidding. Here is a picture I took a while back of Avery and Maddie. Maddie came over to hang out for a day and we had lots of fun making cookies and taking baths. I've been wanting to post it but hadn't found the time, so here ya go! Happy summer everyone!

Maddie and Avery enjoying a chocolate chip cookie dough beater! mmmmTaking a bath, or as Avery likes to say, "momma, I washin"

Babies in Motion! Whaaaaat????

Layla is scooting, and what's to crawl really bad! Her and Mal are just over 5 months old. This is not what I want to be happening right now lol. Mallory rolls everywhere, but isn't really interested in crawling or scooting yet. Thank God!! I was really not looking forward to having two mobile babies in the house! As soon as I put Layla on the floor, she see's something she wants, and goes for it. Of course this usually results in a screaming baby because she can't quite get there as fast as she would like to!! Mal just sits there and a stares at her screaming sister and sucking her thumb most of the time lol. Here's a video, it's a little long, but I wanted to try to get all the kids in it! It is probably a little fuzzy too. Because of the length of it I had to compress it down quite a ways!

Letting the cat out of the bag!

This last weekend Chad, the kids and I went up to bumping lake with Katy, Mike, and their kids. We went to work on... OUR CABIN!! It's true. We went in with Katy and Mike and bought our Grandparents old run down cabin at Goose prairie. We weren't going to tell anyone until we signed the papers, but the papers are drawn up and ready to be signed, and I just can't stand it any longer lol. We had a lot of fun! It needs a ton of work. There are a lot of things needing fixing, but we are really lookign forward to getting it back into shape. The weekend was great because Chad got to spend all weekend with his family too! We took off Friday morning and got back Sunday night with no interruptions, that hasn't happened for a while in May for Chad!


Here are a few pictures of the cabin and us having fun in the cabin! Can you believe we slept 11 people in this tiny thing this weekend? It has a loft, and when we get it to the point where we feel comfortable sleeping up there, it'll be a lot better. But for now, sleeping on the main floor is all I'm willing to do!! There was a lot of Mice, a lot of Dirt lol, but we still had a LOT of fun! Can't wait to go up again!








Layla and Mallory had to spend most of their time in the play pen, we stole Eli's quite a bit because it was bigger (thanks Eli lol) They still had fun though!




This is the side of the tiny cabin. The 2x4s are for the winter to keep the snow from breaking the windows! Can you See Chad on top? lol.

Chad and Mike worked really hard on the roof putting ridge cap up and sealing some stuff off. So glad he was able to come and help!







There is a little creek that runs right next to the cabin, but it's going to be dried up here in about 2 weeks. So sad because the kids loved playing in it. Here's Chad and Avery throwing rocks in.





This is all the stuff we threw out of the loft!!! Lots of mouse nests, eeeewwww. Thanks Mike and Chad for getting rid of that stuff, I didn't want to touch it! lol






Mike and Chad in the loft window. Working hard!



This was our sleeping arrangement... KIDDING. We just put the kids in with us in the morning to play. It was a little too packed for sleeping lol.


The sun shining on Chad's face looks freaky hahah. here's Chad with his girls!

Here's a little shot of the front of the cabin. I'll keep you updated as we do more stuff. Avery is sitting here looking at the pictures as I put them up saying, "Momma, I go to the cabin!!" So glad she had fun. Looking forward to lots more fun in the future!



I think this picture is in no need of a caption... They got in plenty of trouble this weekend together LOL.
