Fun with Paint

Mommy has been feeling so bad for these poor children stick inside that she decided to buy some face paint from Silly Farm. They sell all kinds of different paint and other neat items to make up your face and body. I just love their site!! I have a feeling I'm going to break the bank shopping there (and this bank isn't rich). The kids were so excited when our paints showed up in the mail that they were all arguing over who was going to get painted first. Well.. I am not artistic what-so-ever but I watched a few videos and decided to give it a shot. Here are a few pictures of the end results (after of course we had some smudges here and there). Did I mention how hard it is to get little children to sit still?

Summer Time

I can't believe the school year has gone and now it's summer! It has been unbelievably hot with lots of smoke filling the air for days now. The boys are in swim lessons, which they have canceled the last few days because of the air quality. We have all been couped up in the house for too long and everyone is getting on each others nerves. I have decided to go back to school for the first time in 18 years and I'm nervous as heck. I've always wanted to be a nurse and I figure my time is running out now that I'm pushing 40, so I better get on it! It's been amazing how much the time is flying and these kids are aging. My little Morgan is going to be a Junior this year and will be celebrating her Sweet 16. Garrett will be 8, Landon 5 and Abby 3!! It seems like we just brought her home from China and she was only 11mo's. She is starting to talk so much more now and doesn't hesitate to tell you when she wants something (to eat)! lol. That girl loves to eat!!!

My sister just had a beautiful baby girl and named her Madelayne. Poor girl labored for over 20 hrs and then ended up with a c-section. I felt so bad for her but she was just glad to finally be able to meet her daughter, she was ready for it! There was only one person allowed in the surgery room and I was soo honored that she chose me. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget!! Thank you Lisa, for allowing me to witness such a beautiful event. I just can't get enough of my little Maddie!
