Halloween FHE, Dinner, and Carving Pumpkins

For this weeks FHE, Jeff and I planned a spooky dinner and then did that fun story about the dead man's remains. The kids loved it! They were so grossed out if was really funny! We played scary halloween sounds in the background and turned out all the lights too. Later, we carved pumpkins and had some dessert. It was a great night.

Week One with Four Kids!

So this was an exciting week for us...4 kids in the car, 4 kids to feed, 4 kids to bath, 4 kids to get to sleep, 4 kids to play with...you get the idea. Luckily, my mom was able to come visit this whole week and help me. Everytime I have a new baby, I am reminded of how great my mother is...there is NOTHING she won't do for me. She sewed, swept, cooked dinner, made cookies with my kids, did the laudry, grocery shopped and BEST of ALL...she is the most fun to be with, to visit with, to share a good laugh with. She listens to all my worries and reassures me. She hears me gush over my babies one minute and snap at them the next--and never judges me--just knows me. I love her! So THANK YOU MOM! I look at my little ones and I love them so much it almost hurts....and then I think to myself "that is how she felt about us...how she still feels about us" and I am so grateful! So here are some pics of our first week as a family of 6!
Kayli Bear so CUTE!

Napping in the window!
Can you IMAGINE---I said to Jeff what if they were all real?
He didn't like that thought! Martie likes him to take care of her
babies when he is taking care of Kayli. haha
Eveybody has had "baby" on the brain lately. Martie
is constantly asking the boys to play house with her.
Trav doesn't look too pleased. I love it!

Kayli Elizabeth was born on Thursday morning. She was an itty-bitty thing weighing only 6lbs 9oz. She is super sweet and we are so blessed to have her. The kids just love her lots and were so excited. Here are some pics.
