I'm a blog SLACKER!!!

So, I'm a blog slacker, what can I say. I really actually LOVE keeping a blog but it seems like life has just been a little nuts lately and I have never been able to catch up. We spent most of the summer in England with my family which was GREAT. Due to that though I've been either trying to get ready for that or trying to get back into the swing of life here. Anyway I REALLY want to start blogging again on here and on both of my other blogs. The only problem is that I said I would have a booth at the kids school craft fair so now I need to get busy making lots of wood crafts. The good part about that is that I will be able to add some more things on to my craft blog, YAY :) Anyway I will catch up little by little eventually so watch this space :)

It's been a while

Well I really haven't been very good at blogging due to a few different things which include laziness, busyness, forgetfulness, life's drama and many other things. I'm not sure if anyone even follows my blog anymore or really ever did, hahaha ;) The main reason I actually started my blog was so I could keep some kind of journal and so my family and friends would be able to know what was going on with me and my crazy little family. So, I'm going to attempt to try and catch up and get better at blogging again. I guess we'll see how it goes but I am going to try and trying is what matters most, right? :)

Food Glorious Food

So for the past few months I have found a new love which is cooking/baking. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE looking at recipes and making lots of yummy new things. Anyway due to this new love I have decided to make a new blog. Last year I made a new craft blog which I plan on starting up again when the weather is nicer. I kind of stopped crafting once I was pregnant and had a new baby but I really wanted to get started again.

Anyway today I started my new cooking blog which is Food Glorious Food and I'm sooo excited about it. I'm not the most skilled cook but I'm learning every day. Mostly this blog is a way for me to document the new recipes I've tried and love and to share those recipes with my friends and anyone else who wants to check them out. Most of the recipes I've found through blogs and recipe books so I will link to wherever I have found them from. If anyone wants to take a look feel free, I added what I made today already, both things were YUMMY so enjoy :)

Funny girl

This little girl sure is quite the monkey. Not that I should be surprised that I ended up with monkey's but these monkey's sure do keep me busy, especially this one right now. She is ALL over the place and into EVERYTHING.
This day she decided to get into the diaper cream and put it all over her face and hands, nice?!?!
This day she decided to paint her own nails. You can't really see it that well on this picture, plus I had taken most of it off by the time I took this picture.

Oh Hadley, thanks for keeping my life busy and NEVER dull, you're GREAT ;)

6 months and brothers

I love when my kids get their 6 month pictures. They're old enough that they can smile really big and are just so happy. We got Austin's 6 month pictures the same day Spencer got his 5 year old pictures. Spencer is all about having his picture taken with his brother so of course we had to do that too. My boys are so handsome :)

5 years old, CRAZY!!!

I can't believe it's been 5 years since my little man Spencer joined our family. Life sure hasn't been dull since then but I wouldn't have it any other way. Even though this little man is a total nutter and can be a monkey at times he really has me wrapped around his finger. Ever since I knew I was having a boy I just couldn't wait to meet him and snuggle him up. I think an extra soft spot was formed while looking at him one day and I could see my brother Peter, that was so lovely. Spencer really is a special boy, he has a huge smile like his sister Sydney and even though he can be a cheeky little monkey I'm so thankful he joined our family.

He will be starting kindergarten this fall and he really can't wait. He's a lot like Maddie when it comes to learning things. He loves to learn and he taught himself all the sounds and even how to read. He's not shy AT ALL and will try anything. He just wants to be as big as everyone else which is sometimes scary when he's trying to do things he really shouldn't. I'm truly surprised he hasn't broken anything yet with all the things he tries to do. He certainly is ALL boy and I'm glad he's my little boy because I love my Spence-dog SOOO much :)

Here are a couple of pictures from Spencer's 5 year old photo shoot, what a handsome boy if I do say so myself :)

My handsome little man/cow

I had to add these pictures because Austin just looked so cute. I especially love the cow pictures. We found this cow hat when the girls were babies and our friend got these cow onesies for Austin. This little man is just too cute :)

More random pictures

I don't know what was going on here. It was the first night that Hadley slept in her toddler bed. I don't know whether Syd was trying to stop her getting out of the room but this is how I found them when I went to check if Hadley has stayed in her bed.
This is a picture off Maddie's camera from when we went to the dollar store on day. What a little poser :)
Here's Hadley and her cousin Kue or "Kue Baller" as Hadley calls him. They're so cute!
Another picture from Maddie's camera. We were on the way to Steve's parents house, what nutters :)

Family pictures

It's been a LONG time since we've taken family pictures so I thought it would be fun to try when we went to take Maddie to get her 9 year old pictures. I didn't have very high expectations because I know how it is when I take the 5 kids and try and get their pictures taken. Anyway I was so happy when there ended up being some pretty good pictures of all of us. It's crazy to actually look at these pictures and see how big our little family really is. I love my family so much and am so grateful to have been blessed with such crazy but GREAT kids :)
I had to add this picture. It was the last one and all the kids were ready to be done. Hadley was "trying" to help Austin be happy, it wasn't working too well as you can tell.
Here's some of Maddie's 9 year old pictures. She always takes great photo's which is nice.

New Years Eve

We spent New Years Eve with our GREAT friends the Staker's and the Layton's. We always so much fun with them so it was a fun night to just get together, catch up and eat LOTS of yummy food. All of us apart from Steve were starting another biggest loser competition the next day so we chowed down on the all the yummy goodness. I stole these pictures from Kristy's blog. I liked the one of the boys playing Wii, Allan was really getting in to it, it was pretty funny.
