Winning is Fun!

So, I won another blog giveaway! Over at Metropolitan Mama, I won a set of receiving blankets from aden and anais. Stephanie has a bunch of great giveaways going on over there, check them out! Thank you, thank you!

Big Daddy

Matt is taking a sales class and the teacher told the guys that they could win a $100 gift card if they took a picture of themselves doing something out of their comfort zone. He isn't exactly a sling guy (He is wearing Serena in the sling in the photo) and he hasn't taken all 4 kids out by himself yet, so this was definitely out of his comfort zone. I did have to tag along, to be able to document the event. He did a great job, I hope he wins!

Oh Brothers!

She really is an amazing sister, she didn't even cry.

Menu Plan Monday

I'm finally doing it! I've got my menu planned and most of the meals shopped for, it only took me about 3 days to plan. As always, meals are subject to change, but at least we've got somewhat of an idea for dinners for the week! Here is the blog I'm getting inspiration from, come and join in the fun!

Monday: Memorial Day Cheeseburgers, Broccoli (I like it roasted and everyone else likes it steamed)
Tuesday: Cheesy Potato Leek Soup, with some other vegetables hidden in the cheesiness...
Wednesday: BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches (Crock Pot), Salad
Thursday: Beef and Cheese Burritos, carrot and cucumber sticks
Friday: Chicken Divan (from the freezer)
Saturday: Leftovers, for the kids and I as Matt will be at a Men's Meat Meal
Sunday: Spaghetti (sauce made in the Crock Pot!)

The First Time

It happened today for the first time... all four kids crying at the same time. I've been kind of waiting for it to happen and finally it did, thankfully not in public. We were driving home from Sand City and for many reasons, all felt the need to unleash the beasts. Ezra only lasted a few seconds as he quickly realized the insanity of it all and was able to start laughing with me. Other than that time in the car, we had a fairly pleasant shopping trip down to REI, Target, and Costco! Whew!

Babies with Babies

Crash and Burn

Top Gun was on the other night and all the boys (Matt included) were super excited to watch the fighter jet scenes. They were standing on the bench flying their jets having a grand ol' time.

The music at the end of the movie was especially moving for Gianna.
