I even had Madison in the beautiful white dress so we can get all the kids together... but she didn't want to cooperate so only the boys got pictures. I have to bribe them with candy in order to get them to stand still! I asked if there was a spider on my lens (to get him to look at the camera) and he gave me this look as if I was dumb!
The boys love each other! Everyone says Jacob looks like me and Ryan looks like Daddy... actually my mom told me he looks like Uncle Matt. She says his big blue eyes and goofy smile remind her of Matt! What do you think?
This is such a Ryan face. I gave up on the perfect candids of kids. It is too stressful for you and the kids. I decided it is more important to capture who they really are... and this... well this perfectly describes Ryan! Goofy, silly, and full of personality! Wow! He looks so serious here! I can't believe he is almost 4! (Well in like 6 months...but it is coming around quick! He looks like a little business man... next time I will have to throw in a suit case! He would look like a salesman... or maybe the future president!

Later on that day we did some crafts. I took alphabet letters and glued each letter of the alphabet onto a piece of paper. I gave Jacob some magazines and glue and told him to find pictures that start with the letter of the paper and glue them on. Jacob found the pictures and cut them out and Ryan glued them. I had more glue on my kitchen table then on the paper!
Here's Ryan and his silly face... never fails... get him in front of a camera and he has to make a goofy face! Here is an example of their beautiful artwork. If you are interested in purchasing this one of a kind piece I am willing to sell for the right price! (LOL)
Kylie came over to play today also and the girls got into my make-up. It was too cute. They were pretending to put make-up on each other! For those of you who say girls and boys aren't the same when raising them.... WHATEVER! I went to the grocery store and I always let each kid pick out one special treat for the month as a snack when they are good and Madison picked out a box of Disney Princess Cookies in a pink box! She's one years old..... SHE IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT THEN BOYS! She is all girl! Shoes, makeup, dolls..... yeah so not a boy.
I love this black and white photo of Kylie! She is so cute here!
Then Madison snuck into the pantry and brought me a big bowl of popcorn that we saved for feeding the ducks. She kept pointing at it and bringing it to me because she really wanted to eat some. So I decided to sit her and Kylie on the ground and let them be big girls and eat it. Then Madi took the bowl of popcorn and poured it on her head ... Yeah not my brightest idea. One year olds aren't "CLEAN!" It was funny!

Here is Jacob and Gavin... They are were hanging out on the couch watching Wall-E.
Here is one of Unckie Matt and Madi.... he is the bestest uncle! She just loves him.
Here is all the kids. It is so much fun because they all have someone around their age to play with. Sydnee has Paige, Gavin has Jacob, Ryan has Bristol, and Madi has Noble.... it is so perfect how this happened!
Jack hosted a seafood fest for the family... My kids actually ate shrimp and crab and LOVED it! I would never have guessed they would have ate it. Jack also made these incredible deviled eggs with bacon and jalapeno's inside. They were sooooooo good. I was disappointed because I didn't get my annual serving of Laury's spinach dip she makes every year (due to certain reasons.... JACK!!!) lol.
Here is Aunt Jessey with Josh. Brothers and sisters... I can't wait because one day this will be Jacob or Ryan with Madison!
Here is Noble... the newest addition to the family. He is the cutest baby! He is so sweet and so mellow. He has the chubbiest cheeks that make me one to just kiss them!

There are tons of pictures of the kids.
Madison got so spoiled on her birthday. I found this beautiful Battat Doll House at Other Mother's that costs $200 brand new and then you have to purchase the furniture and dolls separately. It is extremely sturdy and will be around for my grandkids one day. Other Mother's wanted $200.00 for it and I begged my husband to call them and talk them down in price. I was too afraid to ask myself.... Anyways they agreed to a price of $150.00. It is a great bargain. I got the matching garage and a house full of furniture that is about $30.00 per room brand new. Of course the gift she loved the most was a stuffed cow.... how ironic! Within two days he already had to go through the wash because she played with him so much and he got so much food on him!
Ryan wanted to dress up for her party. I have to show you how goofy he looks. Here he is in his spiderman costume wearing a pink party hat! I can't wait to show is girlfriend's one day!
Madison is definately grandma's girl! She refuses to come to me when grandma's around and if grandma leaves... she cries! It is so cute! I keep telling my mom to take her home for a weekend or two... Laugh out loud!

I got to sleep in this morning(yeah) :D and then Josh made me breakfast. We had eggs and hashbrowns (yum yum!) He is so sweet! I'm not sure what we are doing today. Probably nothing because he is working late and Josh and Madison haven't been feeling good. She has been running a fever in the evenings for about 3 days now.
I took some pictures of the kids today. They got a box of chocolates for breakfast... (yeah I know healthy!) Ryan was really whiny this morning so I got pictures of him and his perfect pout face. He learned that face the day he was born and over the last 3 years has tried to perfect it.
We spent most of our day in the playroom. The boys played on the computer and Madi and I played on her slide and with blocks. The boys refuse to let me take picture of them these days. I will have to re-train them I guess. They are so stubborn!
Anyways hope you all have a good Valentine's Day!
