Maurer's Annual Hayride

The Maurer Family hosted their annual hayride last Sunday and we enjoyed the fun of riding through the country side with good friends! The kids weren't too sure about getting on the trailer at first but once we were going they enjoyed seeing the cows and waving to people that we passed.
Ready for the ride!

Our silly clowns

With three two year olds it is NEVER a dull moment! The other day they were playing in the play room and came out dressed like this:
The three silly clowns!
They just knew they were being cute and silly!

We went to the homecoming parade last week and came home with enough candy to keep our kids on a sugar high for a week or more! Collin enjoyed running for the candy and filling his bag, even with the pushing and shoving from the "big" kids. He waved at the floats and would jump up and down when he got a piece of candy to put in his bag. Bryce and Addison were happy sitting back and letting their cousins fill their bags with candy.

Friday night we sat under the lights of the football field to watch the cubs win! I can't say that Addison and Bryce sat much, they prefered to move from one person to the next until the homecoming court took the field. Addison sat and watched them take the field and told me "pretty"! Collin on the other hand sat and watched most of the game, he occasionally changed laps but stayed focused on the field. He would cheer and get excited when the cubs scored and when the band came out he said "march".

Thanks Karla & Sue for helping keep our little ones entertained and we hope you didn't miss too much of the game!

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Lane, Wyatt and Reid

We had a lot of fun helping the Janner Triplets celebrate their 4th birthday! We rode a "real" train, drove the gator, and hit a pinata and went home with a lot of candy.

Collin had fun driving everyone around in circles

Cub Football

Friday night we cheered on the cubs at the football game against Waller. The kids did great and really enjoyed watching the game, cheerleaders, band and drill team. Mommy packed plenty of snacks to keep everyone happy but by half time we were ready to go.

School Fundraiser

We have attended this fundraiser many times in the past for our nephews and niece but this was our first fundraiser as parents of SPCDS children. Steven worked a shift driving a gator to help transport people to and from their vehicles. Since Steven was working I had the help of Granny, Grandpa, and Myrna to keep up with the kids. We had a good time eating, playing games, and watching the big kids sing.

Cupcakes and more cupcakes!

This week we had the kids school fundraiser and all of the parents are asked to help by bringing something for the bake sale. The frisky frogs parents were asked to bring 1 dozen homemade cupcakes per child so that meant we needed 3 dozen homemade cupcakes. I had big plans to make cute homemade frog cupcakes until I realized I just didn't have that kind of time. When I got home at 6:30pm Wednesday evening I started making our cupcakes and by 11:00pm that night, with the help of Steven, Alan and Myrna, we had them individually placed on plates and wrapped with celophane. By 9:00pm I was questioning why I didn't do what any good mother would do and just buy cupcakes and wrap them. Thursday was the fundraiser and I drop the kids and their cupcakes off in the drive thru (the cars behind me probably wondered if I would ever stop unloading kids and boxes of cupcakes). There are lots of advantages and disadvantages to having multiples but I would say this is one of those times that it requires a lot of extra work on our part and our life can be a little overwhelming! A big THANKS to Steven, Alan and Myrna for helping me get this done, with out them who knows what time I would have finished!
