New playhouse from Poppa and Mimi...



Unfinished basement playroom which strongly resembles a daycare...

You just never know what might be going on around here...


Leaving you with a smile from sweet boy...

Wow!

How did a month get away from me without updating the blog? Oh wait, let me think about that for a few seconds...what have we been doing? I am sure there is some good reason...wait, it's coming to me...oh that's right...how could I forget...WE MOVED! Yes, again! Although, we are sincerely hoping and praying this is our long-term move.

Took the boys to the KSU game last night. I know this sounds insane but it is WAY easier to take 3 boys to the ball games (football and b-ball) this year than it was to take just the twins last year. They have grown up so much this past year. Isaac made 4 laps around the concorse tonight. Jorden needs to step it up as he only got 3 laps in before we left. Luke was perfect, of course! And, I had the pleasure, at one point in the evening, of dueling poopers in the stadium bathrooms. That's an experience that everyone should get to enjoy.

I hope to get back in the habit of blogging. The boys are hysterical right now with the things they do and say. Isaac's favorite new word? Never. That's right, never. Such as "never tell me no, mommy", "never do that, Bubba", "never make me take nap, mommy", "never get the 'pankin 'poon, mommy" (did you catch that one?). He says it with such conviction that it is mighty difficult to maintain a straight face. And, Jorden, oh sweet, stubborn, becoming increasingly defiant Jorden loves to repeat his momma. Bonner is now referred to as "that idiot dog" by that little boy after his momma hollered that at him when he ran off at our new house. Seriously, though, it could've been a lot worse than that considering the recent weeks...guess I am thankful that's the phrase he chose to repeat as opposed to the many others that have been uttered around here.

I'll leave you with some pictures from the past few weeks. I'll write it out in black-and-white now b/c I will attempt to seriously repress the move week somewhere deep in to the recesses of my mind. Hopefully, it will get tucked away with things like the insanity of the first weeks of life with twins, breastfeeding, latrine duty at Girl Scout camp and other items that I try to forget. Let's just say with 12-14 inches of snow, artic cold air and three sick children, move week is now fondly referred to as the move from hell.

Move Day! We were waiting for the semi to arrive that morning!





This could be my new best friend...he came over and played with the boys for 1.5 hours while I worked in garage.


Happiest baby!







Tickle, tickle... (or maybe that is strangle, strangle??)

I swear he gets it from his father.

Big boy beds!

Hmmm, I seem to recall taking this picture once before. Oh wait, that's right...I did. Luke is the spitting image of Jorden in this picture!


Happy boy!


Nightly wrestling match...Jereme says he is very close to losing considering how freakishly strong the twins are.


Find me three cuter boys than this...I dare you!

What's a girl to do?

What do you do when you have 2 boys pooping in different baths yelling to be wiped and the baby has a blow-out diaper? Did I mention the hubs is gone tonight??? How is it that he is always gone in these moments???????????

Where do the days go? They sure don't go fast b/c I am busy keeping a clean house or preparing fabulous meals. Luke is a smiling, sometimes giggling and cooing baby these days. He.Is.Such.A.Good.Baby! Love that boy! The little boys are doing so great, too!!




Getting ready to go for a train ride!


Who is that person with Jorden? She doesn't ever appear in pictures!

State of health care...

I just can't let this one go.

Take a stab at what a routine delivery by c-section will cost you these days? And, for the record we were at the hospital for 48 hours. 48 hours, people, and the total amount billed to my insurance (thus far, that is!)???

$21,754.06

You gotta be kiddin' me. And, golly gee, I just can't figure out for the life of me why everyone can't afford health insurance and it's just a puzzle on why our health care and insurance system is completely WHACK and CORRUPT!!!
Luke...terrified.


LOVE these boys!!


This cat had a death wish. It let Jorden carry him everywhere at the Pumpkin Patch!










And, two weeks later, here is Luke still terrified. Of course, if you saw what went on in this house, you'd be terrified, too...
