My life as a Mommy of 4 little boys

Since the birthday party

It seems like things have been nonstop around here since the boys party.  Still can't believe Casen is 6 now and Landon's birthday just passed and he's 8!!!  Where does the time go?  

We've been having some pretty bad storms and really horrible wind lately.  Last Sunday night/early Monday morning we had a horrible storm come through that caused a lot of damage around us.  Luckily, the only damage to our house was a few shingles were blown loose then with the wind the rest of the week they are blown up now but those are easy fixes, no structural damage, thankfully.  The power was out to the boys school that day so they stayed home which just threw my entire week out of whack.  

Tuesday, the 12th, was Landon's 8th birthday!!!  He has turned into such an awesome little kid, love him so much!  He had a really good birthday.  He got to take cookies to school to share with friends then that afternoon Casen had practice but after that we had dinner at Cici's.  He chose it because it was his school's night and he knew they would get money from it.  Then we came home and he opened his presents from us and we sang happy birthday and blew out candles but he was so stuffed from Cici's that he couldn't even eat a cupcake lol.  He played for just a little bit then it was bedtime.  He told us it was the best birthday <3 

The rest of the week was a blur of practices, games and then Saturday was my birthday.  We never do anything for our birthdays (mine and mark's).  But my Aunt called me Thurs night to surprise me with something I wanted more than anything to the Kenny Chesney concert at Cowboys Stadium.  But not only tickets, but an awesome parking pass (we were 3 rows away from the stadium itself) and suite passes.  It was the best birthday ever! Her and Vic even kept the boys for us so me and Mark were able to go and have an even better time knowing they were with her and you can't stay with Aunt Gigi and NOT have an amazing time.  I can never thank them enough for the awesome present...everything about it was just perfect.  We had so much fun, and so did the boys.  A birthday I will never forget, that's for sure.  Turned 25, 31wks pregnant with JuneBug and then that :)

Sunday was recovery day for everyone, we just laid around the house in pjs all day.  The boys were still exhausted, as were we, it was nice to not have anything to do that day.  Then, on Monday, Landon's class (well all of 1st and 2nd grade) had a musical performance at the high school.  It was so cute and he was so into it, knew all his moves and was just having a blast up there...he is NOT shy at all.  After that he had a game where he played awesome.  Their entire team played hard and held the other team off until the last inning they got 3 runs at their last at bat so we lost :(  But they played a great game!  Go Cubs!!!!

There are pics on Facebook of all of that that has been going on lately :)
