We are so blessed to be Americans!

Just the thud from the chair would have been enough to scare the kids. But the fact that I wasn't saying anything (because I was trying so hard not to cuss!) scared them even more. Ellery and Bay ran over to me yelling Mommy. Then, so hilarious... Taite stands up on the bench and cried at the top of her lungs, I quote
"Oh my Goodness! My Mudder is dead! Daddyyyyyyyy!"
Her sympathy did not last long though, because the next morning I still had no voice really and was trying to tell her something. She couldn't hear me well enough and said "what?" several times.
Her comments always bring me such happiness. This little girl is adorable beyond words with her sweet personality. I asked her this afternoon, "How did you get SO cute?" She replied simply, "From my Oma...she makes me cute!"

So we started out by having dinner, these girls are so much fun. I LOVE being with my kids. Elle and Bailey both have such strong fun personalities, I have so much fun with them.
Then it was off to the game. We had some free tickets, but when we got to the ticket window, the lady said that the "reserved" seating was all full and I would have to pay. I don't know why our "free tickets" weren't just as valid for the lesser seating, but whatever we just wanted to go in so badly and the ticket lady didn't budge.
I thought it was pretty cool because as we walked around to the gate, someone from Silver Hawks management chased me down and gave me my money back and apologized for our "free" seats costing me money. I thought that was very cool...made a fan out of me!
So into the game we go. The girls are definitely my daughters, they wanted to understand the game SO badly. It was just like at home, they want to get into the game just like Matt and I. They asked a MiLLiOn questions. What is this, why did he do that, what does that mean, why can't he just always throw a strike, who swings and misses, what if the ump is wrong, can you skip a base, is there any pushing, can you climb the fence, why isn't it called 4th base......all actual questions! Still my favorite was "a ball, of course he threw a ball...duh!"

They all jam and dance around in their seats, it is truly hilarious! Their favorite song, by far is the Immigrant Song, they literally start screaming when it comes on. This just cracks me up. I told Ellery to take some pics of our Zeppelin fun the other day, here is what we do driving around good old Plymouth!
Bailey is a bit of a head banger!
We can't even get out of the car until the song is over!
Yep all of my kids have so much fun, except.....
He'll get over it though....he'll have to! Just ask anyone who has ever lived with me, my love of good tunes is serious stuff! (All of my old Roomies are groaning right now!) Put it this way, I put off my induction date with Cyrus for an extra week so that I could still go to the Eric Clapton (another of my loves) concert with my Mom. That is love and it was worth every extra ounce that Cy grew that week and all the discomfort of my 9 months preggo self trying to squeeze into a stadium seat!
Now go put on some good music everyone

Photography these days is pretty great. So many people seem to be so talented with a camera. I have been coveting some of the pictures that so many of my friends have of their kids and family. I would LOVE to get some taken of our crew, but I just can't bring myself to pay the pretty price that seems to go along with it. I have a strict budget and I can't seem to fit that in, not at half of my monthly food budget anyway.
Anyway, the kids were all dressed and ready for church and looked so cute I thought we'd take some WAY amature pictures in our flower garden! So here are my kiddos, all spit shined and ready to go. I don't know how to pose them or anything, so I just kept taking as many as I could as fast as I could and see what would turn out! I just sat there and watched them so they didn't really know when I was taking a picture or not.
It was a great time! Beth bought the girls these cute dresses and even Cy a pink shirt and tie. When I put it on him, he freaked out! "No pink! No pink! Don't like!"
It was awesome and we are so happy for them! They are perfect together! My camera had an awful time, half of my pictures are totally blurry so here is what I did manage to get.

Look who is 6 months old!! Wow, how time flies by. Gus is pure heaven! He is so fun and so full of smiles all the time.
He is still our tall bean pole. When I had his check up he was 19lbs (65%) and 29 1/4 inches tall (off of the chart) then his head was 17 1/2 (also the 65%)He is sitting up, trying to crawl and getting into everything already. I just want to go wake him up and squeeze him one more time! I LOVE this kid!
Taite- Mommy can we go to the park
I was putting on some mascara the other day and I was startled by Taite yelling...
T-"NO!!! Mommy stop please!"
M-"Taite, what is the matter?"
T- "I don't want your eyes to pop!"
M- "Honey it is just fine, my eyes will not pop." as I resume.
T- "Stop!" she taps the mascara "The TV say this will make your eyes POP! Please don't hurt your pretty eyes!"
She must have seen some commercial, I can't think of one that promises to make your eyes pop, but that is what she got from it!
Taite is a little obsessed with anything princess! She had SO much fun and is now obsessed with her real live princess experience watching her Aunt Beth get married last weekend! She was in heaven seeing Beth in her beautiful white dress! So she says to me today...
"Mommy, when are we going to have your wedding?"
I said, "Honey, Daddy and I already got married!" pointing to our wedding picture.
She got the absolute saddest, most heartbroken look on her face and said,
"You didn't wait for me?"
I tried to explain that we got married before we had any kids. This did not help.
"I want to see you marry Daddy, the handsome Prince! Did Oma get to go? I need to be there."
She literally cried for 20 minutes.
In the car today, Ellery and Bailey were saying how unfair it is that girls don't get to play football. I started to tell them that Jenna Lisonbee and I used to play with the boys at recess. I said, "My friend Jenna and I,"
I was rudely cut off by Taite saying, "Oh Mom......you don't have any friends!"
