Witches

On Thursday we went out and saw the witches at Gardner Village. I fit right in with my current witchy attitude. Actually, the witches at GV seem a lot nicer than I am...
Me and My Hoard. Oliver is just considered one of us now.

The kids love their cousins and can't get enough of them. It is always fun to get this crew together.

And I love my sister-in-laws. What I am not loving is how I look in this pic. I look even fatter than I really am and that is pretty bad. I feel like Monica from Friends when everyone was making fun of how big she was in the videos and she replied, "The camera adds 10 lbs!" And Chandler says, "How many cameras were on you?" Ya, from the looks of it there were a few on me. And from the looks of it, the cameras have no affect on Heidi and Jamie.

We had lunch there. Always a fiasco feeding The Hoard.

And here is the whole group.
Annie, Jamie, Grandma Teri, Maisy, Josh. Andrew, Oakley, Aiden, Oliver, Morgan, Me, Heidi, and Jackson.

We ended the day with a pony ride courtesy of Grandma Teri. Most the kids loved it. Andrew threw one of his bipolar fits and was ornery the whole ride. Typical.
It was actually a great outing and I think we all had a great time. Thanks for the fun guys!

Amy, you're no witch---you should have on an angel costume as you are so good to blog and keep me up to date on the Hoard!!!

Amy I think I know why you've been so ornery... are you pregnant? He he he just kidding. You are a trooper to take your kids out in public. We just prefer the backyard. My kids can join society when they're older:).

Thursday was so much fun. Glad we were able to get together. I think I am the only one with the "witchy attitude". Love that our kids can't get enough of each other. There is nothing better!!

I love that line from Friends! I've actually used it too, when referring to pictures.

You need to be real with yourself. Maybe we should replay a few of our conversations from Thursday. First, I distinctly remember me telling you how good you looked as soon as I saw you - which was 100% truth. Second, I also remember you saying that you don't get out much with your kids. Whatever! I feel like you're always posting about the fun things you do with your kids. So you're officially not a witch, but a way fun mom. Third, you also mentioned that Oliver "isn't much more work", but another kid, is another kid and you seriously get the gold/platinum whatever award for birthing FIVE kids, and raising SIX!!!

Ouch! Raising 6 kids hu? If this post wasn't a slap to the face as to how bad of a mom I am and all that I'm missing out on, than Jamies comment sure was. I don't know that you'll ever have any idea as to how grateful I am to you and Trent for helping us out with Oliver the way you do. I appreciate not only that you watch him for me, but that you involve him in all the fun things you do with your kids. I know he wouldn't get that sort of treatment anywhere else and again, I am so grateful and will be eternally in debt to you guys. Unfortunately I am not as lucky as some to be able to work as a mom full time, but fortunately, I have amazing people like you guys that are so willing to help. Sorry to make this comment all about me, but maybe it was good to...I'm rethinking a lot of things.

P.s. Quick comparing yourself to others. Why would you want to be like anyone else when the way you are is pretty dang awesome. Duh!
