Complete Randomness

On our computer, much like everyone else's, we have pictures from our computer as a slideshow. I get a kick out of looking over at the computer and seeing some random picture that makes me laugh and remember that day or moment in time. So, I thought it would be fun to just randomly pick pictures and post them for everyone's enjoyment.

I hope you smiled as much as I did. Have a good day!

Are you ready for more cuteness???

Okay, the cuteness here is the baby of course. I can never get enough of him when we are over there. He is just growing up so dang fast. It's hard to believe that he is already 4 months old. This was Erick most of the night. He was having so much fun playing games on the computer. I'm amazed at how computer literate a 3 year old is. It's funny how things change. When my kids were this age, there were no computers, and Erick doesn't know the world without them. Crazy!!!!

and how stinkin cute is that little guys face??? I just want to blow this picture up and print only that happy face....
Hayden was spreading the love. Hayden is going to go visit his "other family" here soon, and he is getting his fill of loving in. He is such a good loving and patient. We will truly miss Hayden while he is gone, but know he will have fun with his other brothers.

Yes, we have broken bones!!!!

I thought for sure Erick would be the first child to break a bone. Guess I was wrong. It was Haylee! She and Rick were rough housing and Rick tossed her off his back and she landed wrong on her wrist, and SNAP!!! We went to visit them on Saturday and I gave her a visor with some stickers to decorate. Here she is with her lovely creation and an adorable face to show it off with. Here is the before....I should have uploaded the pictures the other way....oh well.

Here she is with her broken wrist. I asked her if I could take a picture of her broken arm, and this is the look I got for the about silly!!!
Check out that face!!!

Here her and Erick are both dramaing....{is that a word???} it up for the camera. Silly, silly, silly kiddos. When the swelling goes down and she gets her cast, we will have pictures of the new cast.
Look for the next post where I will have adorable pictures of that little brother of theirs.

Grandma's beauty session with Haylee....

So, what do you think??? Haylee was 'trying' to make Grandma beautiful.
She is so stinkin cute and so much fun to have around.
As they were leaving to go home, Ali said, "Blog that now Andrea". Everyone always gets on my case that I 'blog' one is for my family....I will also 'blog' all of my lovely moments as well. I don't think it's Haylee's fault by any stretch of the means.....BUT Grandma does NOT look any more beautiful than when Haylee started. I think it's Grandma.....ha ha ha
Thanks so much for trying though Haylee. Grandma sure does love you!!!

Mother's Day Photos

How could I not have had a wonderful Mother's Day when I get to mother these 5 absolutely fun and loving kids? I couldn't imagine my life without these kids. They are my world!!!! There is nothing better in this world than that of being a mother!!! I LOVE being a mom!! Trevor, has been nominated as the designated BBQer. He did an awesome job again, as usual. Thanks Trevor. That's not a fun job on a hot day, so I really do appreciate you.
Amy snatched the camera and took a picture of herself and left me a little "message". I loved it.

I think these little toes are going to find themselves on my side bar as my favorite photo right now. How cute are baby feet?
Like I have said earlier in previous posts. I will never deny a photo opportunity with the kiddos. Haylee and Hayden were off somewhere else....
While Grandpa and I were at Target we scoured the dollar bins. We found some fun things in there for the babies. One of them was sidewalk chalk. We had fun outlining their bodies. You can see here Erick was spending the day in his undies....oh wait, what else is new???
Erick is absolutely in LOVE with Snow White. So while we were at Target waiting in line, I saw a Snow White toy....I won't use the term doll since it's for my grandson.....{big grin} you can see from the following picture...He LOVED it.
What an adorable face!!!!
It was a wonderful day. I came home from church to a dozen red roses from Heather, Trevor and Amy...a yummy smelling candle from Yankee Candles, and a fun container full of chocolate hugs and kisses. I couldn't have asked for a better day. Thanks kids for everything. It was wonderful.

Photos of the babies

How sweet are the next 2 pictures. Grandma's little helpers. Haylee said she loves to do the dishes....well who am I to discourage that??? She even wanted the apron and problem. Erick wanted to help too. So, he had to have the green apron. I have to tell you....he is a man that knows what he wants and goes after it. I love, love, love that about him.

Hayden enjoying a sinful treat that Heather brought home on Saturday..... Sprinkles Cupcakes....shame on you Heather. I think Hayden liked it what do you think???

Erick was having fun playing with his tricycle in the backyard and Haylee wanted to take a turn. This is Erick's reaction to her request....I would say that is a definite NO.

Haylee showing grandma her lack of front teeth. She has lost two teeth already.
I can't believe how fast Zachary is getting. Heather, Amy and Trevor were playing with him on the living room floor and he was loving all the attention. Here he is giggling at them. So stinking adorable.
It sure is fun to have them visit. I miss having them so close.

What a "Marathon" of a weekend.....

What an amazingly fun weekend I had!!! First it started on Friday night. Amy and I went to dinner and to see the movie X-Men: Origins Wolverine.....great movie. I want to see that one again it was that good. Then Saturday morning I had a Stampin Up meeting in Corona....that was a lot of fun. On Saturday night, I went to dinner and the movies AGAIN...this time with both daughters, we went and saw "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past"....another cute movie. A one timer, but cute. top off a great son Jeff ran his first marathon today. It was a half marathon and he ran it in 2 hours and 30 minutes exactly. We were there at the finish line to cheer him on.
You can see him running the last stretch there in the proud!!! Doesn't he look great for just running 13 miles???? I sure think so. He was pretty sweaty though.

Here he is with his proud wife.
Heather, Amy, and Trevor giving their support.

We asked someone to take a picture of all of us before we left. He is registered to run a full marathon, which is 26.2 miles at the end of the month in San Diego....Go Jeff Go... you can do it.

Talk about an inspirational experience. It was so much fun to be towards the finish line cheering on those runners coming through. There were all kinds of people, all ages, all sizes and shapes, running today. Makes us all want to start training for a marathon ourselves.
What a great weekend. Then we also had the kiddos over for dinner tonight. What a great way to end an amazing weekend. I will have to post pictures of the babes tomorrow. I need to go to bed to catch up with my rest from what was NOT a relaxing was fun....and that was better by far.
