Oh What a Night!

Matt and I decided to tackle cleaning out the basement, which has been a nightmare since we moved in 1.5 years ago. It was time. So we've been working on it a little at a time in the evenings after the kids are in bed.. tonight we decided to work on it after dinner while the older kids played outside and Adah stayed with us in the basement. Things were going so well until it was too quiet outside. Any of you who have children know the silence I am talking about, the kind when you stop and say it's much too quiet something bad must be going on.

I went upstairs and peered out the kitchen window to see this......

I guess I didn't think about how all the rain we've had the past few days had affected the big dirt hole in the back on the yard. Matt dug out a huge tree root a couple weeks ago and we left it so we can plant a new tree there. But I didn't think the hole would fill with water and turn into a huge mud pool:)
The kids were slipping and sliding around on the mud and splashing around in the "pool" having an absolute blast. So instead of getting upset, because what can you do about it at this point? Matt and I went outside laughed with them for a while, took some pictures, and hosed them down. That part they didn't enjoy too much:)

Stair step kids

My little "stair steps"! I often get comments on my stair step kids so thought I'd take a photo of them in order. From top to bottom (Elijah (8), Anna (6), Levi (5), Micah (3), Adah (17 months).

It takes many pictures to get a keeper, here's the reality of trying to take a picture of 5 kids:)

Growing Belly*Updated*

13 weeks
22 weeks

31 weeks

Showing off my ever growing belly! It's been a while since I've allowed pictures of me to be taken, not only do I feel huge but my kids don't take the most flattering photos from their angle.

Daddy's Girl

Nothing sweeter than a little girl with curls snuggled against her daddy! I love these moments.
