#49 of 365: Toddler Techie

Yesterday Ellie was hitting the keys on the computer keyboard and when I asked her to stop, she said, "Mommy, I'm texting!" I was laughing and trying to figure out if she heard it from me?
Then, this morning, she had her leaptop out and it was "texting" and "blogging", lol. 
My little toddler techie:

#48 of 365: Blah

Today's special treat- freezing rain.... Blah!

#47 of 365: Baby Shower

I was so "tickled pink" (get it because I'm carrying a girl!) that two dear friends decided to throw me a baby shower! It was SO amazing and SO much fun! I cannot begin to describe all the gorgeous decorations they did, and the cake, and the diaper cakes, and my sweet friends who came to shower me, and I could go on forever!! I will do a blog post with pictures once I get them, but for Sunday's picture I picked one of these adorable Hershey Kisses that says, "It's a Girl!"

#46 of 365: The Valentines

The kids missed their Valentine's Day party due to bad weather and they were just crushed!
A couple great friends agreed to have their kids make my kids bags so they could still get their valentines. I picked them up yesterday and they were into them for HOURS!

Then when Zoe woke up this morning she and Ellie got them back out and were going through them AGAIN! She loves to ask me who each one is from.

 Ellie was most excited that some were candy!!

#44 of 365: Babies and Brains

I ordered some $1 books from a Scholastic sale. Most of the books ended up being for Cian and Zoe. Grace got one or two and I got 3 for homeschooling. Needless to say, Ellie was NOT happy that she didn't get any books. SO... I had to pretend the teaching/homeschool books were for HER.
When Daddy got home, she insisted he read HER NEW BOOK... about the brain...

#43 of 365: Off to Nanny's

The oldest three had a play we attended this morning about an hour away, so I asked them to pack their school bags for carschooling. Ellie, not to be left out, insisted she pack her schoolbag even though she was just going to play at Nanny's during the play. Here she is with her backpack full of toys and lovies:

Ellie and Daddy in their hoodies.
Cian in the background trying to play too, lol!

#38 of 365: Friday Piano Lessons

My favorite part of Fridays are the piano lessons! Cian takes piano and Grace takes voice. I love this picture of Cian's lesson! My favorite part is how his feet don't touch the floor. :-)

#35 of 365: One of these Things is not Like the Others

Because this is how we roll, LOL!
Today the kids all gathered on the couch while I was entering spelling words onto the computer. I hear, "take our picture, take our picture!" This is what they staged:

#34 of 365: Picture Day!

All the kids had their pictures taken today. The oldest 3 were scheduled for upcoming or recent birthdays and Ellie was the only one not scheduled which I was looking forward to, as every time she has gone for photos she has cried and fought me. Ironically, today she cried when I told her she was NOT getting her photos taken! She didn't want to be left out of anything the kids were doing! We had my favorite photographer and I explained Ellie's sadness and she snapped a few of Ellie as well. Of course, they were her best pictures EVER! I can't post them here since they are professional photos, but here's my iPhone pic of the kids in their outfits:

#33 of 365: Things Ellie Misses Today

I took this picture during the week. It has two things in it that Ellie keeps asking for today: her dad and the iPad. Brian is at soccer this weekend, so the kiddos miss him, especially Ellie, his partner in crime.
She has also lost her iPad privileges for today for waking up at 4 a.m. again and sticking her hands in the toilet. Yep, it's been a super fun day, lol! (Maybe not so much for Mommy!)

#32 of 365: No Leftovers Here

I made some mac and cheese for the kiddos tonight. This was Cian's third helping... I just gave him the pot at that point! ;-)
