Happy Birthday Mom!!

So the 26th is my mom's 50th birthday so this weekend we went to E-ville out to eat, to see Avatar at the imax theater in 3-D (btw it was pretty awesome) and then we went to the casino for a little while. It was a nice time. We hardly get to see each other without six kids running around (between mine and my sisters kids). Just thought you guys might want to see how awesome we all looked in our 3-D glasses. Caution: Do not go to this movie if you are trying to look cool because I don't think it is possible to look cool in these glasses. Lol. We got a good laugh out of each other. Mom and Dad

My sister April and her husband Josh

Keith and I- I am looking super sweet in the glasses. Hehe. Here are a couple of other cute pics of my little guys I wanted to share.

Anyways that is what has been going on around here lately. I should have a phone interview for the job I am hoping to get. Cross your fingers it goes well. By the way I am not getting any closer to finding a babysitter for that one day a week so I would be happy to hear any suggestions any of you might have. Hope you have a good week.....

Suggestions Please...

I am thinking about going back to work part time if things work out like I hope. I have been wanting to get a part time job since Connor was born but then I had Sam and then things have just been to hectic to worry about it. Out of the blue last night a woman from Jasper called me to see if I would be interested in a job at the Urgent Care Clinic there. It is only 1 day a week and every 3rd weekend which is right up my alley. I am not wanting to leave my kids and go back to work full time but I would love to get out of the house some. My main concern though is what am I going to do with my kids this one day a week? Any suggestions? I am looking to find someone who could come to the house this one day a week and stay with the kids. Do any of you know anyone who does anything like that? It is hard to get excited about going to work when you have to worry about your kids. I think that is why I have never looked to hard yet. Let me know if any of you know anyone who may be interested....

Hanging Out!!

So I love the snow and I don't even mind it hanging around. I think its so pretty and if I don't have anywhere to go at least this way Mags has been able to stay home and keep me company for a couple extra days. I do mind the snow however when I have to go places and over the last couple days I have been running around town like crazy. It makes me nervous to drive on it. I am pretty sure we are going to be the old couple where the woman never drives she just sits in passenger seat and complains about her husbands driving the whole time. Haha. Keith's grandparents decided they were moving home from the Legends and are in the process of moving back today. There were lots of preparation having to go into getting them back home and that is my where I come in. I have made arrangements to get them a cook to come to their house 2x a day and a nurse to come in 3x daily to make sure her meds are all in order. It has just became a bigger job now days than I can take on by myself and for their own safety it has to be this way. . Hopefully this will make them happy and everything will work out for the best.

Ok so my kids have had the colds and stuff and are finally getting over it. PTL. Now Connor has Pink Eye in both of his eyes. Someone tell me when you put those drops in does it hurt? Bc he literally cried for an hour after we put them in. It is bad enough that we have to hold him down to put the drops in but then he screams like he is in pain. I can't wait for this to clear up. Anyone have any tips on getting these drops in less traumatically please let me know.

Other than that I am just kind of trying to stay warm and remind myself that my kids won't be little forever so even though I am not allowed to put up the vacuum ever (bc my son is still obsessed with it- it's almost become like a piece of furniture bc it is always out in the living room), my house has toys scattered throughout, and I feel slightly crazy half the time I am going to look back on this someday and want these days back.

Here are just a few pics of what's been going on around here lately.... This is what my husband looks like after supper everyday. Asleep in the chair. The real physical labor of the coal mine really wears him out. You may notice the toy vacuum next to Keith's arm. (Not only does Connor play with the real one all the time he and Sam have their own toy ones as well. Lol)

Sam taking a quick dip.
Connor and the monkey towel. The only towel he will use.

Just goofing around.

Connor and his bf Nolan. How funny is it that Nolan always wants to wear this power ranger costume and these yellow gloves. He calls them his Mustard gloves. They are trouble x 2 but boys will be boys and they sure do have fun.
Anyways hope everyone is having a good week.

Happy Valentines Day!!

So this is obviously from our wedding almost 9 years ago. It came from my album of proofs bc guess what I really have no idea what I did with my wedding pictures. (I am guessing I put them in the basement in a box. What a wife. I can't even find my wedding pics. They kind of got put on the back burner when all our wedding pictures slowly got replaced by baby pictures.) I am not a real wedding person anyways. I kind of wish now we would have went somewhere beachy and got married. I never cared to much about what kind of flowers or what color dresses or any of that kind of thing. Yes I am really a woman just not one that ever was dreaming of a wedding. I don't even know why I got on that topic so anyways....
Here it is Valentines Day and I am thinking of some reasons why I am such a lucky lady. Here are some reasons I am lucky to have Mr. Keith Lynch as my husband.
He is sooo handsome.
He changes a mean poopy diaper.
He worries about me and the kids all the time.
He thinks my muffin top is sexy.
He tells me all the time it looks like I am losing weight (even though I usually have not and I am pretty sure he know it).
He always lets me be right. Because he knows I am. Lol.
He works hard and provides for our family and allows me to stay home with the kids.
He can make the bed really nice.
He lets me have the remote when we get in bed.
He always asks me if I want to drive before we go somewhere bc he knows he scares me when he drives.
He assures me someday we will go on a vacation. ( You know just the 2 of us)
He thinks PMS last 3 weeks of the month and you have 1 good week.
He tells me I look pretty when he comes home from work and I haven't had a shower and am still in my PJ's.
He is the best dad. When he comes home from work he chases the kids around and wrestles them for a while bc he knows I need a break.
He is dealing with the fact that he will never be my dad. (You know how you say well my dad would have done it this way.)
Anyways.... I could go on all day. I look at our wedding picture and think how much we have changed over the past decade. I hate to get sappy and I try to not do feelings but the one thing that hasn't changed is how much I love him. Happy Valentines Day.
