Catching Up

There has been SO much going around here this last week! I'm glad it's over and we are starting a new week because I'm ready!
It was just yesterday I was in the gym filling out Kindergarten paperwork and crying! Now all the sudden they expect me to fill out paperwork for Middle School! I didn't cry while filling it out but there is still time because they have a day where you sign up for classes or walk around for middle's like Middle school round-up! HA!
Ian is really excited and I am really, really nervous! He can't hardly get his act together to be organized and get his homework in spelling/English done correctly! It is honestly stressing me out the whole spelling/English bit! Another rant for another day I suppose.
I really just can't comprehend the fact that my oldest is on his way to Middle School...

Eli is incognito!  You can't see him! Trust. Me.

 You know I do more outings with Eli than I ever did with any of my kids! If you tell the big boys I'll deny it all the way to the funny farm! This kid is spoiled rotten...I have a sneaking suspicion he is aware of that also! Frank had had the weekend off, which included Friday so we went to get ice cream/frozen yogurt with toppings while the big  boys were at school. Honestly though he is really cute it's hard to not spoil him! Anyone else run into that problem with their last child...swore up and down they'd never do stuff like that and then find themselves spoiling the kid rotten, only to wonder years later just where the hell it all went wrong??
I know you might be thinking to yourself what the heck is that, like I do every time I see it.  Well let me tell you...Pokémon make for strange bedfellows!  Back story...Pokémon is a brand of toy that was really big when I was young and it's now come full circle (as a form of torture I believe). Unfortunately for me, all of my boys have cards and other related paraphernalia related to this phenomenon ALL over my house.  As you can tell Eli's stuffed animal (don't ask the name) made it's way into my bed (please ignore the drool stains on my pillow...THAT'S a new scenario for me with braces...and really disturbing that it makes me more like Frank than I'd like to admit out loud Ssshhh!!). I tossed this guy aside for the night only to wake up with him staring eye to eye with me bright and early the next morning! GAH!
Hope everyone had a good week last week!


  1. why is it that 90% of children put their boots on the wrong feet. I mean it feels horrible.

    1. Karina I have no idea!! You'd think it would be so uncomfortable that they'd take the time to switch...and yet they don't.

Here is Ian...he's about 4-6 months old. I still get this look...what!?!Here is my son 8 years later! SOB! Time for birthday spankings from daddy! Quite fun!
Dru joined in the fun...they really do enjoy it when daddy holds the big brother down, easy target!
Lee really going for it...check his stance out!Even Eli got in on the fun...he didn't spank nearly as hard as the other brothers...of course he wasn't quite sure what was going on anyway...he just wanted to do it too!Ian and his birthday ice cream cake! He lives for ice cream cake! What a handsome fella!
He had a good day and got a gift he's been waiting for since he saw it and Grandpa Lee and Grandma Paulson's house on Christmas day....thank goodness they came through and got it for him! He got some money and some great outdoor games and items! He had a great day! I l…

Someone is FINALLY 4!!!

A good morning from Big brother Lee on Eli's birthday!  Mighty is so excited that something is going on!! Whatever it is its worth getting up for!
 My birthday boy!  Has 4 years really gone by so quickly!?!  This year his birthday was the day before Thanksgiving...I am NOT cooking a birthday dinner tonight!  We will be going to Pizza Hut and having a party there...Eli is SO excited and is so happy that his day is finally here!!  It's been a long year of everyone else having their birthdays and not him.
 Birthday boy, Mighty and Mom...a good picture I think
 This is my favorite picture of the day!
 Birthday spankings!!  Thank goodness it is only 4 and a pinch to grow an inch!
Happy birthday Sparky!

Goose Egg is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
