Well, I'd have to say #6 looks just like Daddy too! What do you think? I found this picture on my husbands phone and thought it was so funny I just had to post it.
Here's me nursing in the dental chair. I think now, I've nursed just about everywhere! ha! Even with the protective eye wear on. major drilling being done ha.
Landen and I read the book, "It Looked Like Spilt Milk" then went outside and tried to make things out of clouds. This here is an elephant, with his trunk facing up...at least that is what Landen says. See it? He really does have an imagination:)I could just stare at her all day and night!
I had a special date with Landen. I think one on one is so important. My kids really do enjoy the time alone. The girls have been going with their Daddy and I've been taking the boys.
We shared a milk shake, played "our song" he even got up to dance for me. He opened the door and held my hand. I told him that if I wasn't married to Daddy I'd marry him. He looked at me and said, "I want to marry someone that looks like you, but with make-up always on." He made it very clear that he doesn't like me without make-up. ha!
My date with Austin. We actually didn't spend much time together on our date since he left me far behind! We ran the 5k Turkey Trot. Something we do every Thanksgiving. Only time I run. ha! Not really, but I need to run more! I can't just run a 5k all out when I'm not conditioned like I use to. I seriously couldn't walk for 3 days ha! He did very well finishing 69th out of 400.
My friend came over and did some newborn pictures for us. I had this great idea of hanging Fallon from a tree....
didn't work out so well.
She did a great job. Fallon 3weeks!


She had this idea of stacking mattresses but said only if we had enough and was ready to just do normal shots...but when I set my mind to something I will do whatever it takes to make it happen...even if that means hauling 5 kids, a newborn and a very sore Mommy to the store to buy 4 baby mattresses for a picture, I will! ha! THEN...haul 5 kids, a newborn and a sore Mommy back to the store to return them.
Please enjoy this picture at my expense:) and the one on my header:)
backyard...
Fallon's 1st Thanksgiving...
We helped serve at a shelter for Thanksgiving...Here's Austin helping with the Turkey's....
Fallon's 1st time on a swing...
Me trying to run to prepare for the 5k
Funny thing is I locked my keys in the car (ok, not funny) but just as I called my roadside assistance to come unlock it the whistle blew. I was running while talking. The man on the phone said, "you should have a tow truck there in the next 20min to unlock your car, will you be there?" I said," if I can finish a 5k in 20 min I will." It made for good modivation anyway. Thank God Austin made good time!Crafts to keep the little ones busy during school...We got a lot of our information on Thanksgiving from the Vision Forum blog. We also got the catalog and I want to order everything for the kids for Christmas in there! Amazing books etc...
Landen's job at the shelter was putting whipped cream on the pumpkin pie. He would smile proud as he helped serve.I helped do the dishes with these two girls drying. Never too young to serve! Even Fallon played her part of serving by just laying in her carrier. So many lonely people that stopped to look at her. I walked around with her and talked to people as she slept in my arms. Just letting them love on her brought a smile to their face:)


So thankful for a hard working husband who loves me despite my craziness and these 6 amazing children we were blessed with! God is so good! Then we went to my sisters to eat....
Fallon: Are these all my relatives?More of the family serving...
We came home and Daddy read some Thanksgiving stories. We read about the Pilgrims and their journey to Scrooby etc. Faith sang a hymn by the fire and we enjoyed hot cider while I cried about being so sore. ha! (note to self: your not young anymore! Must be in shape to run 5k) We finished up the night watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving!
