Boys Birthday etc

I feel like I haven't posted a blog in forever.  The boys had their birthday a few weeks ago.  It was Sesame Street themed and they had a great time.  Thanks to all of our family that were able to make it.  We took them to the Dr a few days before their birthday and noticed soon after that Clayton had a horrible rash.  We still aren't sure if it was an allergic reaction to shots or something he caught at the Dr's office.  Cody came down with croup a few days later and now Clayton has it.  I think they are both over it now though. Lee gets mad that we take perfectly healthy babies to the Dr and come home with sick ones. This is the first time any of my kids had to take prescription drugs.  I thought Clayton was all better yesterday but wasn't totally sure.  I have been waiting to invite our neighbors back over to play.  I don't want her little ones to get sick too.  It is yucky stuff that croup.  Lee and I have been going crazy on Craigslist lately.  Our backyard looks like a playground, ha!  We got the boys a big climber w/slides, tire swing, jungle gym for Kaylee, etc.  We should probably stop now, there isn't much room for much else and we have a big yard and a big deck, but both are pretty littered with toys now!

Nice Weekend

I love it when we have a good weekend!  Got tons of stuff done around the house although no one but us would be able to tell.  We got the boys a really cool radio flyer wagon (real metal with rubber wheels and all) for 20 bucks on craigslist.  We took pics of Kaylee pulling the boys in it today.  I will post those later.  Last night Kaylee and I had a girl's night with her friend from school Kylie and her mom.  We saw Tooth Fairy.  It was cute.  During a hockey scene Kaylee started yelling "go horns!" and throwing up her longhorn fingers.  Good thing her Daddy didn't see that.  Joe and Susan came over for steaks tonight and were shocked to see the boys walking around like they were.  I guess it had been a while since they saw them.  And another week begins......

My daughter is hilarious!

So Kaylee put Tyson outside this morning.  I said "Kaylee, let Tyson in it is cold outside."  Kaylee says "He's a dog, Mom."  I said "what?"  Kaylee says "I wasn't speaking spanish!"  WHERE does she get this stuff?  Now I think this is all out of the blue.  Well today she was talking giberish a lot.  Finally I asked her why she was doing that and she told me she was speaking spanish.  Apparently she thinks she is bilingual.  So I asked her to say something in spanish and she just says a bunch of giberish and I asked her what she said..."I said, stop talking to me right now, I'm busy."  She had a nice playdate today with her friend Kylie from school.  They played so good together.  The boys are running all over this house now too.  They played football with their daddy tonight.  I really think Clayton is trying to run!  He will walk SO fast.  It is cute.  I need to figure out how to put video on here, so i can post some.

Black and Blue

I have been waiting for bruises on the boys head to go away so I can get a picture of them for their birthday invitation.  Well, the second I think they are starting to fade, one of them will do something else that makes him look black and blue.  These boys look like they beat their head against the floor.  I may just have to take the picture and try to edit the bruises out.  It doesn't help that my children have no pigmentation whatsoever.  Between Lee and I, they don't have much color to their skin.  Poor Babies.  Maybe if the sun ever comes out again we can spend some time outside and get a little tan going.  Probably not.  They will most like burn then peel, like me.

Alpha Mom

Lee called me an Alpha Mom today.  He calls me this a lot and so I wonder what it really means.  Is he complimenting me?  "You are such a great Mom that I am going to call you Alpha Mom."  NO!  He is actually making a sarcastic comment.   Now listen to what he calls me this for.  I gave some things to Kaylee's Mothers Day Out school, so they gave me a nice thank you in the newsletter.  I thought it was nice, but Lee said quit trying to be an Alpha Mom.  Geez!  SO, I was donating more things to them this week and I ASKED them to please NOT mention it in the newsletter.  I honestly felt rude telling the teachers that.  They were apologetic and that is not how I wanted them to feel at all.  Anyway, I don't listen to Lee anymore.  I will now take that as a compliment because I would rather be an Alpha Mom than not, so there, hmph.

Nutty Brown.....We were Nutty alright!

Not sure what we were thinking when we invited the Massey's to eat out at Nutty Brown with us. least they got dinner AND a show!  Clayton yelled A LOT for food.  I swear he had dinner before we got there, but the boy acted like he hadn't eaten in weeks.  Cody threw a bowl off the table and it broke in a million pieces.  Clayton grabbed several handfuls of mashed potatoes and smeared it all over his face.  Classy, very classy.  I will say we barely heard a peep out of Jack, Maddie, or Kaylee.  Oh and Jason was very upset that the All You Can Eat Catfish really meant "how long are you willing to wait".  Good Times.

Typical Saturday

Lee and I started the day with only two kids at home, the boys.  Kaylee was at her Grandparents house.  Short one kid makes us feel spontaneous, so we planned an outing to do some shopping.  We soon realized the boys with or without their big sister are still a handful to shop with, to say the least.  So we went home.  Kaylee came home later with the Grandparents and we had dinner at the Massey's (always a good time).  Clayton was hilarious at the dinner table!  The quiet one, usually, he was yelling at me to feed him more pasta from my plate.  I mean yelling.  It was so cute.  A quick update on the boys.  Cody is walking like a pro now, more than he crawls.  Clayton can walk, but has to be motivated and sometimes still wont do it.  They are relatively quiet boys compared to their big sister who had mastered many words by this age, but they are boys and also twins, so Dr said they may have their own language first, cool.  This is my first official blog.....stay tuned for more.
