I also got my Gymboree order yesterday, I had gotten gym buck at our outlet store, and of course you cant use those at the outlet and since we don't have a regular store here I had to shop online. So I went online, got on their clearance, they had a line called butterfly, if any of you know me you know how I feel about butterflies (don't you say a word Sarah) so I found so so much cute stuff, I only had 1 gym buck but I got 4 shirts a dress a cute onsie dress thing denim shorts and a pair of socks, I added up all the prices on the tags $160. I spent $ 60 with shipping!! So cute, and the girls were just as excited as me, so they already want her to wear it so I'll take a few pictures!!

seems like my sweet boy was just born or 1 or 2 or 3 or I could keep going, I think you get the idea. I just feel like its kinda surreal, you know like all the anticipation to have a baby, when your going to go into labor, then it happens and your sitting in your hospital room looking down at this amazing little angel sent just to you, to love and teach and adore. Then it for me seems very surreal, like the big build up is over. That's kinda how I felt looking at Jake today, just not the its over part, just the wow how did we already get here feeling. This sweet boy of mine, is just one amazing kid, and I love him with all my heart and I am so so thankful that he's mine, I love you bud!
So without further ado;
The 11 things I love about you!!
1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE, (you get the idea right) that you run with me!!
2. I love that academically I don't have to worry about you, you are so smart and imaginative, it makes me so proud!
3. I love you play with your brothers and sisters, just like you would a friend, because I really think that when you are in that frame of mind that's what they are to you, a friend!!
4. I love that you play sports, and how hard you try, it makes me so proud!!
5. I love that you want to go on a mission, of course this makes me proud of you!
6. I love that you think things through, you aren't rash about your decisions.
7. I love that you love to go out camping and riding, we have such a blast!!
8. I love that you love to read, you just devour books, it runs in the family!!
9. I love that you do what I ask, and never complain!
10. I love that you are so willing to help your brothers and sisters, Just this morning as I was making your crepes you were still sleeping, and you heard MaKenna crying and you got up and came down and got her so she wouldn't be sad!!

Randy and I went to a funeral yesterday. Well, it hit Randy pretty hard, he didn't know him well, and well I didn't know him at all, but after listening to the speakers I think I would have liked the guy. But I think what kinda got me was the guy was only 45 yep, only 3 years older than my wonderful husband. Then he didn't die of natural causes or even self induced causes, it was an accident. Could happen to any of us, right? Well, we sat there and listened to the speakers, the speakers were his current wife, his ex wife, (a little weird I thought but whatever) and his children from the first marriage. Well, his kids, really everyone talked about how many wonderful memories they had with him, his children went on and on about how he always took them with him, they were always going camping or boating or hiking, just a very active dad in their lives. I was impressed and saddened that these kids lost such an amazing father, that their children will miss out on such an amazing grandfather, this world needs more people in the world like this.
So here i go, we walked out and Randy said to me, will my children speak of me like that, my answer, without a doubt of course they will, he loves his children more than life itself, plays with them takes them with him whenever he can, all that good stuff. Ok but now I'm thinking, what about me what would my children say about me, she always made me get my chores done before I could play or have desert or I wanted to quit piano and she wouldn't let me. Man that kinda freaks me out. I want my kids to remember how much I love them, how important they are to me. I don't want them to remember, that mom was the mean one, the one that made them do their jobs and get good grades and get homework done before they can play. So tonight instead of hurry hurry get jobs done and brush your teeth, say prayers and get to bed, I sat down and played a couple of games with my girls, sat and talked to Jake about what an awesome kid he is. I want my kids to remember that they as individuals are far more important to me than a clean house or perfectly made dinner, that its ok to grab take out, and not shower before bed, to play games, and laugh loud, and stay up past bed time. That its ok to hug them a little bit tighter and a little bit longer, because hey you never know, and what are they going to remember, I hope that I don't care if I look like a pig pen, but they are loved, that I took the time, that they mean more to me than any thing else in the whole world, that they are my everything!! I love you my sweet babies!

OK so Michales boat, kinda funny, she had to build a boat for physics, and it can only be out of cardboard freezer paper and duck tape, the project is worth 75 points if you build it get in it and try to make it across the pool you get all the points but if your boat makes it across and back without sinking you get 25 extra credit points, Michale, SANK!! LOL. We kinda thought that if she would have been in the middle instead of all the way to the back of her boat she would have made it, oh well lesson learned!!
