So here we are...

So here we are....

A week into Summer vacation and this mommy is already going BANANAS!!!! I am SOOOOO ready to have a break away from this NASTY desert! I am really tired of the hot and the yuck of dirt.

My girls have spent the week playing with friends- at MY house! trashing MY house and eating MY food! Oh sorry was that a LOTTA selfish. I like MY quiet and MY time alone to just veg. Well that is no longer with the girls all home. They want their friends over here ALL the time! and when I tell them NO- The WORLD HAS ENDED as they know it and the fits begin!!!! Why can't I ever have MY friends over- thats what I hear and WHY ????? WHY WHY WHY WHY???? It is already REALLY OLD.

Can you tell I am already over this? Really I am. I wish they could just conform to ME and do as I want all the time and NEVER ask WHY! They just dont get that we can just pick up and go to the pool anytime we want. We cant just come and go. Delaney is still little and needs the momma and some nursin'. They just dont get that part.

Really I have tried to make this week fun for them. We had our Legoland trip.... playing in the sprinklers, watching movies, staying up late. We even let friends sleep over this week, anyone who knows my hubby knows he doesnt let that happen, normally!

Well I guess that is all for my rant today. Maybe this is just a rough start and it will get better. I AM HOPING thats what it is!

We dropped a LOAD of money!

Matthew and Kelsee riding a ride together- Kelsee had the control! YIKES!

OK so I MADE Matthew take this picture with me! He is NOT a picture people but I was taking ALL the pics and I do enjoy a picture every now and then! =)

Matthew was skipping with Haylee and Kelsee. It was so cute..... SHH he has NO IDEA I even took this picture, let alone am Posting it for all to see!

Delaney was a DREAM baby. She kept busy while her and I were waiting for the crew to ride a ride, by playing with the sunscreen.

And Matthew talked to her and kept her company while I waited with the girls for a ride.

My girls waiting for a ride... there was ALOT of waiting in lines. We only rode 3 rides while we were there. =)
Although we had to drop a LOAD of money it was a fun trip! A great way to start the summer. It was a fun surprise for the girls and a good way to spend time as a family.

Summer is FINALLY Here!

These are just a few of the fun pics we took the day school got out!

The girls are finally out of school. As a mommy I am not sure whether to be happy or not really. Ya know its nice not to have to get up so early, but then what do you do with 4 girls all summer long????? Keeping them busy in 29 palms is a real chore! But we are going to try our hardest.

We started summer off with a bang! My sister in law and 2 neices came to visit for Curstians graduation Thurs. We played at the park, watched movies, went to the pool, went bowling and had fun!

Curstian graduated from 29 Palms High school on thursday night. She is the first of Matthew's girls. We only have 4 more of these to go to! I have to say 29Palms is CRAZY! Wow. It was so loud... not really a thing to take a small baby who is COMPLETELY exhausted to. Delaney had not slept but 20 minutes ALL DAY Thursday. She woke up at 7am and didnt go to bed that nite til 930pm. I WAS SOOOOO tired myself. The picture of us together will probably be the last for a VERY LONGGGG time!

Delaney had her first experience at the Pool! She was looking so cute in . The water was FREEZING! Poor Sydney's teeth were chattering. It was only about 85 degrees and the water was probably only 65 or so.

I am looking forward to the summer- of fun! with my girls. Hopefully we will be able to spend LOTS of time away from here- oh wait did I say that outloud??? I GOTTA GET AWAY!

My "new to me" desk

Sydney with the
desks (the 1 on the right is the new one)

Hey there! I just had to show you my new to me desk. I got it for $10 off the 29 Palms Yard Sale site out here. It's like Craigs List. I found out about it through my friend, Whitney (thanks!) I have gotten some great things. I just got a bath seat for Delaney today for $2. I have gotten NEW DVD movies for $2 Not to mention all the stuff I have SOLD on there too! It is even better than ebay! I dont have to mail anything or loose money from paypal and ebay fees.

So when I got this desk It was the fake wood color with black accents trim. There were water marks and scratches on the top. I decided to paint it on top. So with my neighbor friends help... This is the result! I love it. It is so big. Check out the comparison to the old desk. I have all these big idesa but never follow thru..... until now! I am proud of myself for not letting my ADD get the best of me.

*I dont really have ADD, my friend just says I do =)*

My sweet baby

My big 7 month old!
What a precious face.... even dirty =)

Check out that grin! I went in to check on her while she was "napping" and found this.

She was hanging out in Haylee's room like a big girl.

She has fallen asleep on the floor a few times lately. Getting tuckered out by watching her favorite TV channel... Sprout.

I had no idea she was even sleeping. I was in doing the dishes and came out into the livingroom and found this precious sight. I just wanted to squeeze her!

Where has the time gone? Tomorrow, June 3rd, my baby will be 7 months old!

I cant believe it myself. She is growing more and more each day. It is so fun to watch her now interact with her sisters. To do the lowcrawl to reach something that she wants. To cuddle with her daddy and grab your face to kiss you, ok so it is more of a wanna suck your face off thing but it is cute none the less. =) She is now saying Daddddda. Yes he gets the first word although I, ME am the one home with her 24/7! WHHHHY????? Where's the love?

Delaney is eating, and LOVING by the way, baby food. She loves her bumbo seat and has figured out how to contort herself to just about climbing out of it. She loves to play in her Jumperoo and watch the fishy swim in our 55 gallon fish tank. Her latest thing is falling asleep watching Sprout and Noggin.
But most of all- she loves her mommy. =) I went to the store the other day while she was sleeping. She was home with Matthew. When I got home and walked in the door she started to cry. She stopped when I closed the door and walked over by her. Then I got up to go get something out of the car I had forgotten and she started to SCREAM! She was so mad. It made me smile to know that my little baby loves the momma.

I have truly been blessed as a mom with some wonderful girls. I couldn't make it thru somedays without the help of Haylee and Sydney... and even Kelsee. They are such big helpers at holding, changing and even feeding now. I am a lucky mommy!

I am looking foward to the special relationships between all my girls. They are great friends and love each other.
