My "Tigers" are back

I tried to post this earlier this weekend, but I think my new camera makes the pictures larger or something. I really don't know. I just know I had to make them small to get them on here.
All that to say, the masters was this weekend and what a great game played. Here is my crew posing for me. Let me just say that I did not ask them to pose this way. I just told them I wanted to take their picture and this is what I got. I love GQ.

More Easter

I meant to get these out earlier this week, but my week ran away from me. We had our own Easter egg hunt. This may have been the first that we have done on our own. I know...we are lousy parents, but it all honesty it isn't about the festivities for Adam and I. Don't get me wrong they make great pictures, but it has always been more about Christ. So some years they get Easter baskets and we do the egg hunts and other years we don't. I am ok with that.

He was so excited to find his orange Easter eggs. (we gave each boy a different color)

Opening the goodies

#1 being himself

Here are some of the family shots from Easter Sunday. It was a great day to celebrate the risen Saviour.
Our official family shot. I am trying to get better at these, but in all honesty I hate looking at my after birth body. The boys

What a handsome crew!

Baby Dedication

We had the opportunity a few weeks ago to dedicate #4. We have done this with each child as a sign that they are not ours, but God's. We are just the vessel he used to help train and teach them about His love. It was very special for our family. We also had a lot of people who came to support us.

#4 is trying to grow up

Littlest brother is trying to get big quick. He will be sixth months old next Sunday. I can't believe that he has been around that long already. It feels like a blink and here we are. Here are the latest milestones.
He is getting up on all fours like he wants to crawl. He sees his brothers and wants to get involved so badly.
He finally was able to eat some cereal. I will say though he has only had it twice in his life, but eating food is huge. The second time around was much better than the first. The problem we have is him grabbing the spoon to feed himself. Again, growing up too fast.

If you give a mom a muffin

I found this on a friend of a friend's blog. (you like that) I found this absolutely hilarious and it fits when those of us with preschoolers.

"If You Give a Mom a Muffin"

If you give a mom a muffin,

She'll want a cup of coffee to go with it.

She'll pour herself some.

Her three year old will spill the coffee.

She'll wipe it up.

Wiping it up she'll find dirty socks.

She'll remember she has to do the laundry.
When she put the laundry in the washer,

She'll trip over a pair of boots and bump into the freezer.

Bumping into the freezer will remind her

She has to plan for dinner

She will get out a pound of hamburger.

She'll look for her cookbook.

The checkbook is in her purse

That is being dumped out by her two year old.

She'll smell something funny.

She'll change her two year old's diaper.

While she is changing the diaper the phone will ring.
Her five year old will answer and hang up.

She'll remember she want to phone a friend to have coffee.

Thinking of coffee will remind her

That she was going to have a cup.

And chances are...if she has a cup of coffee,

Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.
