Easter this year was fabulous! On Saturday, we went 4 wheeling with all my family. I was very worried what the weather was going to be like, cuz it was supposed to snow!! Well, we went out to cherry creek, and the weather was great!!! We rode 4 wheelers, had a camp fire and roasted hot dogs for dinner, had an amazing 3$ game of "lawn darts" which was sooo much fun and the kids of corse played in the sand!! I always love Easter weekend! then when we woke up on Sunday morning the Easter Bunny had visited......and brought 6 inches of new snow with him!!! The kids got a new summer outfit, which they couldn't wear due to all the snow, and lots and lots of candy!!! The kids had fun and will be snacking on candy for all of spring break!!!
Yes I am a little late to post this, but oh well!! Ien turned 30 on March 30th. So it was his GOLDEN BIRTHDAY!!!! I wanted to make it a super special day for him, so I thought for weeks what to do.....well......I couldn't think of anything specific!!! I suprised him by showing up to his 5th grade class and brought donuts for all the kids, and had the class sing to him, then I made cafe rio's pulled pork burritos for dinner, and had dinner at my mom's house with all my family. The kids gave him some exercise bands and I gave him an autographed photo of Troy Palomalu from the Steelers. (I think he liked it......) He said he had a fabulous day, so I sure hope so!!! I had to work thenight before, and when I got home, I of corse, gave him a kiss. well I said "wow! i've never kissed a 30 year old before!" He thought this was pretty funny....atleast I can still make him last after 9 years together!!! Happy Birthday babe!!! We all love you!!!
So we took my sweet "little" Caden to the dr's today for his 6 month check...yes I know it's a little late, but only about 3 weeks.... ;) I have always said he is my biggest baby, well he didn't let me down once again!!! He is 19 lbs (75%!!) and 27 inches (60%!!) What can I say, I must be feeding him something good!! Speaking of feeding him, he has started on baby food...and LOVES it!! It doesn't matter if it is peas or peaches, he'll skarf it down and smile the whole time!! What a sweet "little man" we have been blessed with! Cassi also went to the dr's for her kindergarten check up....yes I will now have 2 kids in school....wow!!! She has always been my little one, and she still is. She was 41 lbs (40%!!) and 3 feet 6 inches (20%!!) We have always said she needs to be in a little body, cuz she is such a firecracker!!! Love you kiddos
The day has finally arrived!!! Ien is now officially Mr. Richins Fifth Grade Teacher! Today is his first day, and he is set and ready to go. We are so excited for him, and are so proud of him and his accomplishments! Any child would be lucky to have him as their teacher. We love you Mr. Richins and you're going to do great!!!
Happy Valentines Day to everyone!!! just had to say that since the "Love" day is almost here.
So my Corbin has decided he wants to be a baby again. He has started wanting me to call him baby instead of big boy. My silly boy has been climbing into the baby's swing and bouncer also! I turn around and he is sitting in one or the other of them.......silly boy!! I keep telling him he is my big boy and not a baby anymore, so hopefully it's just a stage and he grows out of it soon....I don't think my swing or bouncer will hold him much longer!!
Now here are my thoughts about the "LOVE" day coming up soon.........
L is for how Lucky I am to have such an amazing husband and wonderful kids!
O is for how Obviously blessed my life has been!
V is for how Very Very lucky I am to be married to such an amazing man!
E is for how Exciting every day of my life is with my fabulous family!
I love you Ien, Maesyn, Cassidy, Corbin, Caden and everyone else important in my life!
(be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you every single day, because you never know what the future may hold)
well the first 2 weeks of 2010 have been eventful. Caden went to his 4 month check, and sure enough he weighed 16 lbs. 6 oz--75%, and 26 inches long--75%!!! he is definately my biggest baby! (I think the next biggest was in like the 40%!) Maesyn got her report card for the second term, with straight E's! She is on reading level O, which her teacher said in second grade if they end at J then they are on track.....so she is way beyond that! Cassi knows almost every letter of the alphebet by site and can count to 30 with no help! Corbin is still just a total 2 year old boy! The other day he told me i had a snake in my hair......here's the story.......any one who knows me knows that often times I have a zig-zag part in my hair. Well, corby decided he was going to brush my hair, and when he saw my part, he started saying "ssssss", which is snake to him! So what can I say, i guess I have a snake in my hair!!!
Ien started back to work today......well sort of! His teaching job doesn't start until feb. 22, or when ever the teacher he's replacing has her baby, but the principal wants him to start coming to the school to do various stuff like tutoring, sub teaching, preparing ect. But he does get paid for the days he goes in!!! I told him the other day that I think he should stay unemployed because I've just loved him being home....but our savings account thinks differently!! ;) I'm excited to go part time hopefully soon, we'll see what happens! Sorry this is so long, but 2010 has been full of fun for us, hopefully it continues for the rest of the year!!!
my sweet Caden is 4 months old today!! I can't believe it has been that long since he was born! We haven't been to his 4 month check yet.....but Ien stood on the scale with him and he was about 16 pounds!!! WOW!!! he definately isn't starving is he?!?! Well, we are so happy he is in our family and that he is happy and healthy! Love you Cade!!
