My parents

They are wonderful parents.
Awesome Grandparents. I love how much time they spend with my kids and the effort they make to spend those times with them.
I can always count on them.
They make me feel special.
I love that they still call me Squirt.
The list can go on and on.
I'm feeling a little sentimental today and wanted my Mom and Dad to know how much I love them and appreciate them.

Love Squirt

(Now everyone knows my name)

Is anybody there? Hello to all my blog lookers(can I say that, oh well I just did.) Maybe people are too afraid to comment. I'm trying to be a better commenter on other blogs. I hope everyone feels comfortable to drop us a line. Even if you don't have a blog it is still possible.
I'm interested to see who's reading about us.

New things

I was bored of the old template so decided a blog facelift was in order. Get used to seeing different backgrounds. I get bored easily.

We had a great weekend. And Quinten's halloween birthday bash was a success. The kids had a great time cookie decorating, mini trick or treating (pretty cold in my Wonder Woman costume) and movie watching complete with popcorn which then came with quite the mess. It was great to see all the parents getting into dressing up.

I leave you with a sampling of pictures.

What a great day!

I have such a wonderful husband. Let me start off by saying last year's birthday wasn't the best. I had just had Spencer and got really sick which landed me back at the urgent care for a couple of days of iv antibiotics. A very painful way to spend a 30th birthday.
This year Chris surprised me with a day shopping with some friends, lunch, a pedicure and supper. I had all these plans for the day, as Quinten's party is tonight. I thought we were going out as a family and then to kids klub. Chris had arranged the day, with some help from Joy, Kathy, Karri and my Dad. A very big thank you to my friends and family for the awesome day. I felt like a queen. Then the evening was topped off with great food with great friends. I can't express in words how happy and excited I was. When I opened my card from Chris I cried. He is so thoughtful. I love you Sweets!

Baby hair no more

Spencer went for his first hair cut today. Not much to say about it. No tears during the cut, only laughs. She even used the clippers. He doesn't look as baby like. Although he is still my baby, and will be for awhile.

Another wee one

We had Quinten and Spencer's annual check ups. Spencer also had to have is weight checked because of the weight loss and drop on the charts. My doc isn't super concerned but wants us to keep feeding Spencer lots and then come back in 2 months to have another look. And that is a big deal for our doctor to do a follow up. He was saying Spencer shouldn't be less then the last time he weighed him. Which was almost 4 months ago. He also hasn't gained at all in the last month. Which is wierd to us. We've been feeding him tons. I feel like I'm shoving the food at him. I'm not concerned about it. He's a happy kid, who loves to eat. Sometimes more than his siblings.
Quinten is 26 1/2 pounds and 35 inches. Spencer 17lbs 10 oz and 28 3/4 inches.
I would like to know the secret to eating whatever one wants and not gaining anything. Not good for a baby but good for me. :)
Have a great night.

Little things excite me

We've been doing yearly pictures of the kids well for about 5 years now. Okay more often in the first 2 years but whatever. In the past we've gone to Sears, which ends up costing us what seems like a fortune. I figured we could try doing it ourselves, so off we traipsed to Fish Creek park. We got some good ones of Quinks and Spencer, and Taylor but we didn't go planning for her yearly ones. She gets school pictures. Anyway, I put the pics into photo shop made my own wallets and such. I have to say I am very impressed at how they turned out and the cost is amazing. What would have probably cost us $200, if not more, cost us $22. I think we ordered 26 sheets. So you see that is what has got me excited this evening. I love when a plan works out. I'll leave you with a sample, although I think the actual printed copies look better.

Have a great weekend!

Happy Birthday Quinks!

Well the last of the kids birthday's is today. Happy Birthday to my middle baby Quinten! Today he is 3 years old. We will be having his party in a couple of weeks.

Quinks you are a special kid. You make us laugh, are sensitive, yet goofy. We love who you aare becoming and look forward to see you grow and learn over the next year.

I get pretty sentimental at this time of year. I know that is so shocking to most of you. :) I know I'm done at 3 but it is kind of sad that there won't be anymore little Lobbsters added to our family. I am very lucky to have the 3 I've got. They are great kids even when they are fighting.

I'm very thankful for them and my great husband.

What are you thankful for today?

Taylor has reached the age that she notices what commercials are all about. If we see something she'll let us know that was on a commercial on tv. Today I found her with a straw in an orange trying to drink it. I was informed that she wanted some orange juice and that's how they do it on the commercial. Great not only do I need to sensor what shows she watches but now commercials? At least she hasn't tried shaving lately or anything serious. Or even asking for all the toys on tv. It could be worse.
