Raw{e} Desserts

I'm joining Sailor and Company for the Raw{e} theme of the week Desserts!

I have participated in this before on my other blog, Because He Gave, and even posted a picture this week. 

But, as I was going through getting ready to edit our 4th of July pictures I ran across this one and I am wishing I would have used it instead. 
So, I decided to post it on this -almost forgotten- blog.

Record breaking Winter wonderland!

Did you expect this post? 
If you're in the Dallas area you could pretty much assume that I would have to blog about our record breaking snow fall, right?

The Weather Channel reported that the DFW area got over 12 inches of snow!!! Breaking all records in the past 111 years that records have been being kept for the weather. 
So cool!! 
Yesterday when the girls woke up to the winter wonderland outside they were dressed and playing outside before 8 am!
When I went upstairs I found them all sitting on the window seat in their room staring out the window at the beauty!
Audrey said 'look mommy! Ice!' 
I said 'ice? oh you mean snow. Thats snow, Audrey!'
Audrey 'Oh, snow!!' 

Here are the pictures from first thing in the morning.

Then, when Grandma and Grandpa got home they went down there and built a snowman with them!


After all the fun from yesterday we woke up to MORE snow having fallen!


As we're looking outside and watching it all start to melt away, we're trying to remember to soak all this in because there's a good chance....this will never happen again in any of our lifetimes.  

And-because I just can't resist- I wonder how Obama feels right about now about that whole Global Warming theory...stuck inside the White House with over 3 feet of record breaking snow fall there in DC. Ha!

Out of the mouths of babes...

My friend Peggy reminded me that I needed to be making a written record of all the cute things my kids are saying, or doing, these days. We'll be able to look back and have a good laugh when they're older. For now, I usually just put them as my Facebook status updates. Here are a few from the past week or so....

this morning: Audrey was sneaking a piece of candy. When I saw what she had done she looked at me, gasped and turned her face the other direction,lol. Then I said 'Audrey did you get a piece of candy? You have to ask mommy first' she turned back to me and with candy drool pouring out she said 'mommy i ha pee cany pee?' who could resist that request?!


Yesterday: since I cant laugh about this outloud, I'm putting it on here. :) Audrey was upset I wasnt letting her do something so she said "youre mean mom!" (something shes heard her sisters say to each other, as much as try not to let that happen) and I looked at her and said Audrey... ready to scold her and she scrunched her and said "no! no!" knowing that is what was about to come out of my mouth.


Dec 30th: Audrey: Mommy, Bubby tuck. Me: Huh? Audrey: Bubby tuck!! I turn around to see Owen has gotten himself stuck under the dining table.

Earlier that day: Me: Girls what is Owen playing with? Girls: Jesus

Dec 22nd: Whew! back from finishing Christmas shopping with all 4 kids! They were all great, the 2 year old being the best. Go figure. We saw (from the food court above) Santa and Audrey was all into seeing him but when we walked past him downstairs she freaked out and covered her eyes saying "I cared! (scared)" good thing we ha...d no plans to actually pay money and visit him, lol.

  Ok, so this one isnt out of the mouth of a babe, (well a baby at least, I call him a babe, LOL), but here is one about Derek...

Dec 4th: I think Derek has lost track of time. Earlier he said 'If I fell off your parents roof I would be fine. Im a skateboarder.' First parents live in a very tall 2 story house. Secondly, I reminded him 'yeah, you were a skateboarder....LIKE 10 YEARS AGO!!!!' bwahahahahaha! What a hard dose of reality, realizing youre getting old!

OMGOSH! Just walked into my bedroom to find that Audrey had climbed into Owens crib where he was playing. Didnt know she was capable of that....yikes!

4 months already!?!

Where has the time gone?! Mr Owen is already 4 months old!! Hes getting so big! Hes rolling both ways. We're not used to this because none of the girls rolled over from their back to their bellies for a really long time. They were all too fat I think, lol. Owen is big, they were fat. Within the past week he has started scooting everywhere. Its the weirdest thing because hes still so young. I put him down on the ground and the next thing I know....hes scooted somewhere else. I don't really think he realizes what he's doing quite yet. Other then turning himself around, I do think he does that intentionally. The pushing himself backwards across the floor, not so much. Hes also sitting a lot more securely now as well.
At his check up he weighed in at a whopping 17 lbs 6.5 oz and was 26.5 inches tall. He's still a big boy. And ohhh sooo cute! I could just eat him up. Most of the time ;) Hes full of smiles and has the greatest personality. I think one of my favorite things right now is when Audrey wakes up in the morning and comes in our bed and she asks to hold 'Bubby' (as he is affectionatly called around here). The funny thing about this...hes almost as big as her! She only weighs 5 lbs more then he does!

My little sitter. Isnt he just the cutest thing!?

We're getting ready for Christmas around here. Dont forget to check out our new blog about what else we're up to!
