Fianlly got pictures to load!

So, I have not been able to get pictures to load for several weeks, which has been driving me crazy! There has been so much going on and no way to share it. Here are many pics to let you catch up on our lives here once again.

We were down to my younger sister's house at the beginning of the month for her little man's baby dedication and to celebrate mom's day and some birthdays. As usual, we had a great time and the kids traveled great which was an added blessing! This is a pic of me and my sister.


Here is my big man and the little man. I love that!

We went for a walk on some cool trails near their house. All the boys, except my sister's youngest sitting by the river.

Super dad headed back to the house, he has one baby strapped on there.

The big man was part of a spring concert. At one point, they got to play kazoos. I think that was the highlight.

We got a new cat and her two babies. They are all so sweet and the boys have been having a blast with them all. Here is the little man who is holding Sally, who may or may not be a girl. The black one we have is Trigger, who may or may not be a boy.

KK, are those eyes beautiful or what?

The little man with KR, I believe. Those girls love their brothers!

I am not entirely sure who is who here to be completely honest.

The girls started on food, which has been an adventure! They were definitely acting hungrier so we got them started but they are so hard to feed as they are very wiggly. They were not too impressed at first. This is KK.
KR


they can sit up now if they lean on their hands. They are also trying very hard to crawl! I will post some video later. They are 6 months now.

The big man graduated from Kindergarten! I can not believe how fast the year went. He was so excited and we were so proud of him.

The middle man with KR.

I ended up hurting my back very badly about two weeks ago. No one thing, just an accumulation of things. I was really out of commission and could barely hold myself up or walk and definitely couldn't hold my kids. My mother-in-law was a huge help for one whole day and then my parents came and stayed through the rest of the week. I am extremely grateful to all of them for their help. I do not know what I would have done with out it. Here is my mom with the girls.

I often find them all tangled up together. KR, KK

While here, my dad helped me out in a huge way! He made a shelf for me for all our books. They have been in boxes for two years with no where to put them. The shelf turned out exactly how I wanted it! He did an awesome job! Thanks again Dad!


The boys were playing in the barn the other day and I caught the middle man standing in this ray of sun coming through the barn window.

The big man, whose is very proud of this pic.

A little of this and a little of that

Here are just a few random pics from our days here. The big man adores his little sisters. Here he is hanging out with KK. THey both were pretty pleased with the situation.

Our middle mangot a second wave of the flu bug that hit our house last month. He got very sick! Here he had fallen asleep one afternoon that he was feeling pretty rough.

Both Grandmas and Grandpas love to get time holding the babies. Here are the girls with one of their grandmas. KK on left, KR on right

Here is KR fast asleep. When they are ready to sleep it doesn't matter where they are, they just crash.

Here is my super, multitasking man! Twins have stretched him in this way. He does such a great job with all the kids. In case you can't tell he is bottle feeding one and burping the other. He won't claim to have mastered multitasking in any way but I am proud of him!
