I really need to get better at this

Okay so it came to my attention that I have not updated my blog in a really long time I am going to try and be better about this. So we will start fresh today.
Things have been a bit crazy with the Smith family. My schedule has changed yet again and I am now part time with the hospital and part time with the business. GMS has over 200 clients now and it keeps getting busier and busier. I am so excited to participate in the growth of our business. I love going to court and seeing how the business works. I look forward to doing more. I found out that I can possibly get my SSW by taking 2-3 classes. The crappy thing is I have to go back to school but the good thing is its only 2-3 classes which I can do in one semester. I will hopefully be doing this in the summer we will have to see.
The twins are doing fantastic they are now in Pre-School and loving every minute of it. I have to say sending them to school has been a big change more for me than them. I can't believe that my babies are old enough for school.
Maddi is still tall and skinny. She is such a happy and loving little girl. She loves animals and has all ready convinced me to keep a stray cat she found. This is the newest edition to the family and her name is Princess Kitty Lynn Lynn Smith. I have finally talked Maddi into just calling her Princess for short. Maddi loves to write and play with barbies. She is so much fun!

Gaige gets bigger and bigger every day! He loves superheros and dinosaurs he probably knows more about dinosaurs than I do including the correct names for them. He has just taken a interest in word search puzzles. He is a very smart and sweet boy! Gaige is quite the little ham and continually makes me laugh.

Mike is doing great he is still at Sherwin Williams. He just got another mini bike for his birthday this is number 3 It will be a good summer project for him, and hopefully we will be able to take it to the salt this year.

Lets see what else has gone on....Oh yeah I turned the big 30 in January I do have to say it was kind of depressing but I am over it now and embracing my age, after all its only a number. looking back 30 seemed so old until now and I am thinking my life has just begun. I look forward to the many adventures I will have in the future.
well that is all for now. Hope everyone is well. I will post some new pictures soon.

Yep its been a while

So its been quite a while since I last posted something. I have really struggled to blog lately I am not sure why but it has been really hard to keep up with such a busy schedule and find time to blog. Things here have been quite crazy lately. We have all most finished up the house we now have painted the whole house except our bedroom, we re did the bathroom, put new hardwood floors in the den, patched up some things with the kids room and now if it ever stops raining we will try to start on the outside. We have some work to do on our patio, we are attempting a garden this year hopefully we can get it tilled up soon! That is just the house stuff, I am working about 20-25 hours a week with the business (GMS) and it is really starting to grow fast! I love that job and look forward to eventually starting graduate school. I am currently going to court for the business and teaching the Love and Logic parenting class. I am finding I really enjoy the teaching part which I was a little skeptial about at first but it has turned out to be quite enjoyable! Besides work we have been busy with the

Twins who just turned 4 on May 9th I still can't wrap my mind around how fast time has gone wasn't it just yesterday that I was stuck on bed rest in the hospital??????? They have grown up to be some pretty amazing kids! I am so blessed to have them in my life! Not a day goes by that they don't put a smile on my face!
Gaige is now a giant yes I truly mean this he measured in at 43.5 inches (off the charts) and 47 lbs (100th percentile) our pediatrician basically told me that he would be taller then me by the time he was 8 at the rate he is growing ( not that it takes much to get taller than me) he loves superheros, playing out side on the swing set, riding his bike or skateboard and any other thing that boys do. He is so happy and carefree I just love his little personality.
Maddi Lynn Lynn is now measuring 40 inches (98 percentile) and she has finally made it to a whole whopping 33 lbs (10 percentile) she is just a little string bean. She is such a girly girl she loves the color pink and if she had her way that would be the only color she wears yet at the same time she loves to play in the dirt. Maddi is now really into barbies, zoo zoo pets, riding her bike/skateboard, and playing on her swing set. She is such a feisty little thing I just can't believe some of the things that comes out of her mouth ( she sounds just like me) Yet at the same time she is such a shy little thing and very sensitive. I have to admit it is so fun having a little girl that likes to go shopping with her mama and get her nails done etc...
I truly am so luck to have a boy and a girl it really is the best of both worlds!
Well I guess I will end for now until next time.......

This is going to be a long one since I have not posted a thing since Halloween. Lets see where to begin I guess I will start with Mikes birthday This year he turned 33 we decided to have pizza and cake at our house with my dad, the Hayfords, and the Wymans. Mike's cake was in the shape of a Tabasco bottle. This was Gaiges idea since his daddy loves and I mean loves hot sauce. After cake we took all of the kids (and adults) and went bowling. It was so fun watching the kids bowl they would get so dang excited! I was awful at bowling and will have to admit that Gaige beat me and Maddi tied with me Yep my 3 year olds are better at bowling than I am. I will say I am pretty dang good at wii bowling but in the real world not so much. The next day we went to baby Taylor's first birthday party and then out to dinner with Mike's parents. This year I let the kids pick out what they wanted to get him and they chose these really cool lego race cars I thought they did pretty good.

Moving right along the following week was Thanksgiving we celebrated the actual Thanksgiving with Mikes family at his parents house and that evening I went to work. Then the following Saturday I made Thanksgiving for my family and friends. All in all it was a wonderful weekend. This was the kick start of the Holiday season and so far so good. I do have to say I love cooking for family and friends and I love to entertain shockingly we fit 12 people and a few stragglers in my house. The food was fabulous and so was the company.

So I am tired and will have to post more next is the Christmas Season and that one will take forever! Until next time.

Well Halloween for my family was about 3 days long. We started off by dressing up and going to my moms office and then to luch. The kids had a blast and it was so good to visit with my mom and actually spend some time with her. The next day the kids went Trick or Treating at Uncle Jakes office it was a blast and they made out like bandits! Then on Saturday we headed down to our usual spot Buna and Papa's and had dinner and snacks then went Trick or Treating with Lily and Kaylee of course it was raining so we only went to a few house but the kids had a good time after that we went back to Buna's and watched movies and ate some more! Over all Halloween was a blast! I am so glad our traditions have continued with my children. (when I was little I always went trick or treating with Melissa my best friend and now our kids are doing the same)

its not terrible 2's it ferocious 3's

So Yesterday I had to take my son to the doctor because as we were finishing up our Haloween craft day he decided to stick a bat window decal up his nose. He then panicked and told me that a bat was stuck in his nose I had no idea what he was talking about until he showed me the window decal and said that one of those is stuck in his nose. We ended up having to go into the doctor because I was unable to see or reach the item and his nose was bleeding worse than it should have. So in a panic I rushed him to the doctor ( i was worried if he sniffed too hard he would swallow that plastic and aspirate it or something.) Yes this is the way I always think Thanks to all of my years of working in the ER and now in a Pediatric ICU. We arrived at the doctor and they brought us back and the doctor safely removed the bat out of my son's nose. The reason it bled so much is because the plastic cut up the inside of Gaige's nose. This incident was not the first time he has stuck something up his nose.

Now on to ferocious 3's I love my kids don't get me wrong but whoever said it was terrible two's forgot to warn people about the ferocious 3's My kids weren't too bad at age 2 but now they give me a run for my money every day. Not only is this the age of great discovery it is the age of testing every boundary known to man. Between fights and curiosity i am constantly saying "no" . So parents be warned.

Gaige and Maddi are doing great they are learning tons and continue to surprise me everyday. They are very Happy busy kids. Gaige is now 41 inches tall and 43 lbs and Maddi is now 37 inches tall and 29lbs. They are now riding their big kid bikes and are continuing to learn their alphabet and numbers. they can count and sing the ABC's but are learning how to recognize them on paper.
We are now spending time at the library too. The kids love books and I am excited to feed their passion for reading. They obviously take after their mama in that department. My grandma Thornhill would have been proud. Well hope everyone is well I will post more after Halloween.

Where did September go????

Wow I can't believe we are allready into the month of October! Time is really getting away from me. The kids have started swimming lessons again and are quite the little swimmers! They love their teacher and have so much fun in the water. Gaige I think has a little crush on the teacher he always has to be by her and you can actually see him flirting with her. Its way cute! Since the last post we haven't done too much minus working on the house. We did celebrate Lily's 4th Birthday the other weekend and the kids had a blast trying to break the pinata. We also took the kids to see the "big planes" at hill air force base. I don't know who had more fun MIke or the kids! As summer is leaving us and Fall is moving in I am getting really excited for the Holidays! I look forward to doing our traditional Haloween activities like going to Black Island Farm and picking our Pumpkins and many other things. The only thing I don't like about this time of year is it is going to start getting cold and I am definatly a fair weathered person.
The business is picking up and we are at 60+ clients. Daddy is really excited. I am very proud of him and all of his hard work that has gone into this business. He really wants to help people.
Well that is all I can think of for right now. I will post pictures later. Hope everyone is doing well.
