Busy Day

Yesterday was nothing too special, but we had a little bit of "extras" in it. We got to have little Oliver over for a few hours. My girls honestly cannot get enough of him. They held his hands, got him toys, gave him his binky, gave him loves, and even started eating him. I am not sure Kimmy will want us to babysit again!
The boys didn't have preschool yesterday so we had their friend Cami over to play. They were up on Aiden's bed escaping the sharks in the water. I love when they use their imaginations! Andrew would say the theme music from Jaws, you know, "da da, da da, daaa da" and scream SHARK! Then they would run and get on the bed, barely escaping the jaws of death!
During the day I tried to keep the house some-what clean (slightly impossible with 7 kids in the house) for Young Womens. We had a scrapbook night at my house. We had a lot more show up than I thought, so we were a little crammed in our craft room, but I think the girls had fun.

Trent and I ended the night by trying to catch up on some of our Tivo'd shows. We made it through one episode and called it quits. By the end of the day we don't even have the energy to watch TV...

I'm sure you use all your energy tending 7 kids--we admire you for it. You deserve a good night's rest--hope you get it. It's so fun to see your kids in action--keep blogging!!!!

Your the simply the best. If Oliver could talk, I'm sure he would say that he had such a fun time with you and especially your girls. He was so happy to be with you guys! Thanks again...I SO owe you!

Seriously...how do you do it? I call it a good day to get a shower in before 2 P.M. and I only have three kids and no visitors. You amaze me!

You are amazing. The pictures of your girls with Oliver are dang cute...although I am not sure if you can call him "little Oliver" next to your little ones. He almost has them beat!!

looks like a whirlwind. That's pretty bad if you don't even have energy to watch TV! You poor guys.

Sarah said...

I love the game your kids made up ~ that sounds like something I would have done as a kid. And Oliver really is almost the size of your girls! They are all so cute. And, I am jealous of your craft room... :)

Oliver looks like a king with his concubine women wooing over him. "Bring me some warm milk and my binky!"
