Funnies :)

Adalyn: "momma, are we gonna get to keep Titus forever? Cause he's SO cute! And can we keep you? Cause you're really sweet! But.... We don't really have to keep Miley.. Cause she's not really sweet to me...."

Ella kate was drawing a Christmas masterpiece when adalyn looked over and said, "oh, you did a great job ella kate! I love how you drawed that whistle-toe!" (Mistletoe) 🌲

Josiah isn't sure what he wants to be when he grows up. He just told me that it was a tie between being a taste tester or working at GameStop.. ‪#‎bigdreamer

I was snuggling Levi as he woke up from his nap. I kissed him and said, "oh, I love you!" He kissed me back, smiled at me and whispered, "I love daddy!"

Adalyn was on her 3rd wardrobe change for the day when Miley told her, "adalyn, that dress isn't going to look good with shorts on." Adalyn smiled and twirled around saying, "what? for real? I look AMAZING!!"

I'm clearly the greatest momma-chef ever. After trying a new Pinterest recipe, I serve all of my kids their perfect little dishes only to see them take a bite and turn their noses up. However, I look at my sweet firstborn who has gobbled up her entire bowl! I smile and ask her if she would like anymore, to which she replied, "ummmm no ma'am. I gagged the whole time I was eating it, but I didn't want to make you cry so I just kept swallowing it down."

Overheard a conversation tonight between a few of my kids...
One of my sweet daughters: "me and mom look just alike. we are both tall and skinny!"
Another one of my sweet daughters: "uhhhh.. Mom's not skinny."

I'm in the front yard with my kids when a lady parks her car at my driveway and walks up to me asking if she can apply at the daycare that I run at my house. I kid you not! The look on her face when I told her that these were all my kids and we homeschool, was priceless!


I have done an absolutely terrible job of keeping up with this blog. Life is busy and I need to make this more of an effort. The kids are growing at a rapid pace and they are saying and doing cute things by the minute and I try to share them on facebook or write them on a post-it, but then I need to transfer them to here so I can have them all in one place. phew... I am going to do my best to make 2015 a more productive blogging year.. fingers crossed. so lets start back with the holidays. the kids were asked to model some clothes for a friend of mine's precious boutique. they turned out so well, and I was so thankful to be given the images!
Christmas was great and busy, as usual. we spent time with both families and I think I took mostly video and not many pictures. This was Titus' first Christmas and the kids were more excited for him than he was :) I took video for all of Christmas eve and my video camera died during the middle of Christmas morning, so I switched to my camera. that's why I don't have pics from my inlaws on Christmas eve and no video of Christmas day with my parents. :(

Miley is 6

Miley, Miney Moe, Miney Hiney, Matilda Jane... our sweet 3rd born is 6!!!!
She is so witty. A firecracker. Full of life (and drama). A big dreamer. A snuggler. An all around easy, loving and beautiful little girl. She has no filter, and whatever she thinks in her head, she spills from her mouth. I may or may not have shed some tears from a few of those spills that she had to say about me. She bridges the gap perfectly between the big kids and the little kids. She can hang with the bigger ones, but can also play and entertain the littles. she loves being in charge of Levi and she idolizes Ella Kate.
She is a daddy's girl through and through, but I have never doubted her love for me. She smiles a lot and almost ALWAYS makes a humming sound when she smiles, like a sweet little HHHMMMMMMMM:) She loves her cousin Eve, drinking sprite, eating apples, carrots and cheese. She could sing and dance and put on a show all day, everyday. She can braid hair like a champ, loves barbies, make up and karaeoke. She carries a purse with her at all times and it is always full of random treasures that she is ready to give away. At one point at church, I saw a few little girls with little white door knobs. They looked familiar and as I gazed across the room, I realized that miley was passing them out. apparently, she took the knobs off of her dresser and was giving them to her friends:)
She always has sea shells, jewelry and money that she is dying to give away. I pray she never loses that passion of giving. She is an outside girl and although she is girly and prissy, she can get filthy in a skinny minute. She loves digging in the dirt making houses for fairies and habitats for the bugs that Levi finds. She is a great trampoline jumper and can swing super high. she hasn't mastered all of the monkey bars or riding without training wheels, but she is super duper close. She is an easy dresser... by far my easiest girl to get ready. She never cares how I fix her hair or what she wears. Although, she is starting to prefer jeans and shorts and less dresses and skirts. She is reading pretty good and is a whiz at math! The more that I type about her, the more that I want to go and wake her up from her bed and spend some time with her.
Miley, you are a JOY! Your daddy and I could not have picked a better middle girl than YOU! You have taught me more than you know and you make me want to stop and smell the roses more often. You notice things that most people overlook and you see them as beautiful. YOU are beautiful, miney moe! God has created a masterpiece in you. I love you so much! Happy Birthday.
