Wyatt turns 6

Wyatt and Ella helped me make the cake
The kids get to pick out what they want for breakfast and dinner. Wyatt chose Cookie Crisp, probably because I never buy Cookie Crisp. I asked if it tasted just like having cookies for breakfast and he said it did.
When Wyatt went to bed Weston and I blew up a lot of balloons and covered the floor with them so when he woke up he would be surprised. Wyatt loves balloons. No Wyatt's room isn't pink. The night before his birthday the three little ones wanted to sleep together so they stole all the beds in the girls room. Brent woke up this morning to go hunting. He left the house around 4:30- 4:45 and the little kids heard him. So they woke up. I heard a lot of giggling and talking for quite some time. When I went back to tell them to go back to sleep all three of them were snuggled in one bed laughing. Such a great time! (Love being their mom!)

I bought these fun How to Train Your Dragon figures to put on Wyatt's cake. I knew he would love them! He loves things like this!
Birthday party games......Pin the tail on the donkey.
I told Trett to take a few pictures of us while we played pin the tail on the donkey. What donkeys behind did he think I was talking about?!?
Musical chairs. The kids loved this one. Good thing I asked Wyatt for some game ideas he came up with them all. We also did a treasure hunt to find a treasure at the end!
Wyatt' cake. I wanted to do a How to Train Your Dragon cake. So the blue stuff is suppose to be water since they are vikings and then just some figurines.

Lots of fun, gifts, friends, ice cream and cake! Thank you everyone! Happy Birthday Wyatt we love you!

My SWEET Friend

A few weekends ago I stayed home with a sick child while Brent took the other little cuties to a birthday party. When they all arrived back home later that night the kids came in excited and asking me if I had made that thing by the front door. What thing? You don't know mom are you tricking us? the kids kept asking. When I stepped out front I found this little gem! A sweet friend of mine made it for me! The sign also has another saying on the back for fall. So cute! I love it!! Thanks Tricia you are the greatest!!!

My new shoes

For about a good year every time I get out of bed in the morning I can hardly stand of my feet. I hobble around the house for a while and I am in a lot of pain. We have a lot of ceramic tile and Pergo flooring. Recently I told Brent I really would love to find a pair of supportive shoes just to wear in the house. I really don't want to wear my shoes that I wear to the stores and in the parking lot in the house. O.C.D. I guess and the thought of all that stuff I stepped in while I was out running errands being drug into the house bugged me. (Yes everyone else wears shoes in the house). Knowing all to well I probably would never get around to it and knowing if I found them I would probably come up with a reason why spending that much money on myself wasn't needed and somewhere else the money needed to be spent. Brent showed up on Saturday with these cuties! He said he thought they were perfect because they were lite and they were slip on so I could easily slip them off and on in the house or if I was going to go outside. Such a sweetie! But I couldn't help but worry about how much he spent. Knowing my next question he informed me they were having a 30% off sale and he also used a 25% off coupon. Such a sweetie!

Trett rides to school

Some friends of ours ride their bikes to school with their dad. We live really far from school so riding your bike to school is out of the question. Then on my way back from dropping some of the older kids off at school I saw our friends and their dads ridding with their boys to school. Trett also hears about it from his friends and tells me wishes he could go some time. Before we knew it he was invited to come along. I drop him off at their house and he rides into town with the other kids and their dad. They also live out of town. The ride to school is about four miles. He loves it! And yes we did get him a helmet.

The Tree House

Today after school Trett came into my room where I was folding laundry. He asked me if I would go with him up in the tree house to do homework. Would I?!? I would love to!!! Things like this are what makes being a mom so great! I also got double lucky, Ashtyn was there when we got there and I got to visit with both of them.

Sunday Football

Weston had a good time dressing up the kids in his football uniform and played a little football before church. And yes they are in their pajamas. They said that Wyatt was on the ground with helmet and all pads and couldn't get up because he had on so much big gear on. Then it didn't help that he was laughing hard. Wes loved the way Ella would point with her helmet on. I guess she too has seen a lot of football. Lots of fun! It makes me happy to see them having fun together!

This year Wyatt and Trett are in soccer. Ashtyn decided she didn't want to do it this year. I was okay with it because last year with four in sports I was exhausted! Then Ella wanted to play soccer but I told her she needed to be 5 to play. Who would have guess that Wyatt's practice was right next to field where all her little friends from primary were practicing. The girls are all her age.
