Anniversary, Sleepover and playtimes

Okay, so our anniversary was on the 16th. Jon got me some beautiful flowers! I just wanted to post a pic of them because I thought they were so pretty.
The last few days have been hectic but lots of fun. The Movie theater here have free movies on Wednesday's that show kid movies, so we packed up and went to the movies. The movie was Flushed Away, which was way cute. The kids were great, except for two bathroom breaks, and having to ask a total stranger to hold Jake because my hands were full but it's a good thing that there are nice people out there to help out. After the movie we went to the Bean's for lunch and Ashlyn packed her bags to have a sleepover at our house. Boy, were the kids excited! All evening they played and played and I finally turned off the lights and told them to go to bed and within minutes they were konked out on the floor in our basement! They looked soo cute I had to take some pics.

They woke up early in the morning, but let me sleep in while they watched some cartoons. Jon ended up getting called in and so he missed the whole evening which consisted of painting nails, putting on makeup, doing hair and playing with playdough. Hannah has already asked me when we can have another one and I just need to sleep first before I even THINK about another one. They were great though and I don't have any complaints! These other pics I took because I was going through the pictures and didn't find any pics of me with the kids so Hannah helped me out and took these pics! I think she did a pretty good job.

This ended our fun few days when the Beaners came over for dinner for enchildas, beans, rice and enchiladas! YUMMY!! And I made homemade oreo's (which I got off of Erica's blog)!

Got Milk?

Zach got the milk out, poured it into his cup and this is him with the finished product! Gotta love it!

Sometimes I feel like a COW

BEWARE...CONTENTS NOT APPROPRIATE! haha Okay, so I know what you are thinking....Oh you look great for having a baby a few months ago. haha That is not what I meant. Let's not get on that subject, sometimes I just feel like I am nursing ALL THE TIME! Hannah has this song from Sesame Street...I'm proud proud proud to be a cow, I give a lot of milk....That's me! Jake is such a chunker all he does is eat! haha And no...he won't take a bottle. Sleep is something very foreign to me, and I wonder how a person goes on such little sleep and I still really feel alright. Oh well! He is also teething, which means lots of crying. I tell you, it's a good thing he's a cutie! I love tylenol, orajel and teething tablets, when they work atleast! haha Our other newest obstacle is potty training. Zach is doing GREAT! He loves to stand up and pee and gets most of the pee in the potty but refuses to poo in the toilet! I still haven't gotten him to go ONCE! Everyday we have poop in the underwear..what to do, what to do. Nothing I guess it will just take time. This just reminds me how much I hate potty training. If anybody has any ideas, please share! Hannah is just SOO INTO Hannah Montana. For those of you who don't know who that is consider yourself lucky! She is this cute girl (Billy Ray Cyrus's daughter), and has this little tv show on disney about her and anyways, she sings and Hannah loves it! To be honest though, her songs are very catchy and I find myself knowing all the words to the songs and dancing around too. You know it's bad when your kids aren't around and you find yourself watching Hannah Montana and singing along with her. It's time when I catch myself doing this that I immediately scold myself and laugh.Our anniversary was on Monday, but Jon was gone all day so we went out to dinner on Tuesday night. The Beans watched our kids...ALL OF THEM! YEA!! NO KIDS!! It was great! I can't believe we have been married 8 years! Where has the time gone. Just when I think that, I look at my 3 kids and say...oh yea..there it is. I still feel like I just graduated from highschool, then I look at my 3 kids, the crow's feet and um..shall I say few extra pounds and I am getting older! I love it though, and woulnd't go back for anything.

Zach Vs. Jake

Okay, so I know we sent this to a few people but I thought it would be fun to put on here also. About a month or so ago we were looking at Jake and thought, WOW he looks sooo much like Zach. Well below are pics of the kiddos at approx. the same age. Zach is 3 months and Jake is only 5 or 6 weeks but I think they look sooo much alike! What do you guys think? And can you tell which is Zach and which is Jake?

Okay so I guess I should have told you who is who. Here you go! We dressed Jake is the same clothes as Zach had in these pics! How fun huh? And Amber, no I didn't cut off his mohawk yet, I just wet it down with water for the pic.
