This week I have been trying to establish some sort of normalcy for my days home with the kids. Joel and I just realized that all the family visits have prolonged us from discovering what life with 3 kids is really like. IT IS NUTS! I actually managed to get 2 errands done today and drink a cup of coffee (without wearing it). I feel so acomplished. Asher and Anna have been so good at working with me as we trudge through the days. Joel and I have established date days with them so they can get some positive one on one time. They each get one date a month with one parent. Joel and Asher had a date last weekend and Anna and I go out this weekend..then next month we switch. This is our second month doing it and the kids aboslutely LOVE it. They can't wait for their dates, and actually Joel and I love it too. and speaking of dates, Joel and I got to go on one for our 7th anniversary. We had a wonderful lesuirely dinner at a beautiful restaurant in the mountains where we got to eat our food when it was hot and take out time without children crawling everywhere. We have been so blessed in 7 years. Here are some good pictures of the lovely blessings.

A Kodak moment

Asher loving on Jesse. Jesse gets smothered to death by both of them but he never seems to mind.

Anna's big boo-boo. She face planted on the cement after slipping on some tree nuts. She was miserable and somehow this bandaid helped.

  1. Wow, you have three kids now, that is amazing...and they are all growing so fast.

  2. LOVE the first picture!!

    Great idea about the dates. We'll have to copy you :)

    I took Hannah shopping today for "supplies" for her birthday party. I kept telling her that it was for a special project that I'm doing. I don't want her knowing she is having a birthday party because I know she'll keep asking me about it! AND when she asked me (over and over and over) when baby Levi was coming I would always say "after your Happy Birthday." It's going to be a long month of August. I know she will ask me about Levi coming at least three times a day!!
