I hate when I have such great things to blog about, and I get busy or don't sit down and take the time to blog about them. Or start a blog and take forever to finish it. I have made a promise to myself, that I will get better at posting, my goal is 2 posts a week. There are soooo many things I want to blog. This is a perfect example about something I had started but didn't make myself finish. It should have been something I posted a MONTH ago, so without further a-do, I give you my Mother's Day 2009. We had a great day, we had the family over to our house for dinner. The day was beautiful, so we decided to take out the baby pool and slip n slide for the big kids. The pool, we thought was going to be a great idea, well it was for Cooper and Ella. Casen & Cole on the other hand, HATED the water. It was too cold for them. I felt horrible, they cried as soon as they touched the water, so I took a quick picture, and out they came. Then I thought, I know, I'll take a picture of them in their bathing suits in the grass. WRONG! The two that didn't like the water, didn't like the grass. Again, I just snapped a quick pic, and up into the arms of family they went. Here is the attempt to get a picture of me with the kids. We had to put a towel on the grass, for the ones that hated it. Last year I spent part of Mother's Day in the NICU with the babies, and the other half at home with Haiden & Kennedy. This year I was blessed to spend it at home with all 6 six of babies and my wonderful husband. It was a wonderful Day.
I am pre-warning you, the rest of the post is pics from the day. So you may go into picture overload, so don't say I didn't warn you!

Now that's certainly time way better spent than blogging. :0)

Ha! Too funny, the pics of the 2 kids that didn't like the water and grass. Do you do group baths with them? I do and so I think that has helped getting our girls used to the kiddie play pool. But yes, I think our girls didn't like the pool one day when the water was a bit cold. Cold water in an AZ summer? Ha! ;)

What a nice Mother's Day for you, with all of the kids home this year! Yay! Enjoy your summer! Oh, and you'll have to let me know how all of the advice on nap/food ideas/schedules. Hope it's working for you!

Those faces are just classic! Having such a great time but they always have that one unhappy moment! My kids just now got used to the grass, but they are definite water babies! Stopping by as a Multiple Mom! Obviously you have been spending your time wisely, so no apologies on the blog posts!
