The Stairs

One of the first major renovation projects dad has done in the new house...

Say Hi Meggie!

 It was our plain old halfwall staircase that we knew.... okay... I KNEW... dad had to get to work on immediately.

It cost a pretty penny but was very well worth it.

One day, these stairs will have wood instead of carpet on them. The look I'm trying to achieve for the house is rustic, traditional farmhouse. I'll post the after pics soon. Stay tuned.

Before we moved in, our PC took a dump. Then the kids broke the ancient laptop we were relying on for our everyday use. Daddy just got a new laptop and I haven't bribed my computer smart brother yet to install all the fancy gadgets on it, including Photoshop! So... until then.... you'll have to put up with my ugly so-so pics.

We have a zoo!!!

Elizabeth gets her pet chinchilla. She named him HARRY STYLES after her boy crush in the band 1 DIRECTION. Gotta admit, he is kinda cute.

Back To School

The kids started the 2012-2013 school year. Here's the rundown...

Brianna-8th Grade
Elizabeth-5th Grade
Emily-4th Grade
Matthew-2nd Grade
Ben-Happy @ home with Mommy

 It's impossible to get a good pic with everyone smiling when there's this many kids!

Elizabeth and her best friend.

Matthew and his cousin Vivian are in the same class!


And Emily got Elizabeth's teacher from last year.

We enrolled Megan in preschool. This is her 2nd week. She is loving it!!! I'm super excited about the kids teachers this year. No complaints.

Without the help of Nana and Nina packing up the house, I'm sure we'd still be living between two houses, which isn't any fun at all!
Each day I came home from work, I'd find that more and more of the house got packed up.

Megan Finally Turns 4- a month late!

Megan turned 4 right before we got the keys to new house. With all the new house chaos, we decided to postpone her bday party til after the move-in. So we pretended she was still three for another month! Poor kid, right?! She'll learn the truth someday I'm sure and be completely traumatized by the fact that mom and dad made her three years old for 13 months! Then, she'll probably turn around and do the same darn thing to her 5th kid, haha.

Mooooving Slowly!

We finally got the internet up and running at the new house! My apologies for the delay. Start expecting more blog posts!!! For now, my bed is calling me for a quick nap... I've been helping daddy unpack and move boxes around. I'm exhausted. I leave you with a pic from a mom/dad date night last night to the Temecula wineries. It was a nice, relaxing mom's day for me!

Can't think of a good title right now....

I got a headache/toothache. And I'm in the middle of cooking dinner, and perusing Pinterest, and watching 19 Kids and Counting with Elizabeth and Emily, and yelling at other kids, but I still wanted to share the happenings around here with you, so....

Happy Birthday, Brianna!

Sorry for the lack of blogging. Our home computer took a dump! Not sure when it will be back up and running. For now, we're relying on the 1 laptop which always seems to be in the hands of one of the kids.

The plague, Big Bear, Happy Bday Elizabeth

Two weeks ago, I thought I was gonna die. Okay, maybe I'm being a little dramatic. You know what?! I'm NOT being dramatic in the least! I had pneumonia and I swear I thought death was right around the corner! And to top that...four out of six of the kids were also sick w/ coughs and fevers as high as 102 degrees. Thank God for my Nina who graciously took the 2 healthy ones out of the house for the weekend.

One Smart Kitten

Don't forget to click on the post under this for more pics of the nursery.

I'm so embarrassed to even blog about this but it had to be documented!!!! I am sometimes blonde. I sometimes do corny things. I behave like an airhead, sometimes.

The Nursery Reveal- Part 2

So here are some more pics that I promised (better late than never).
Sarah showing how hard we're working, haha.

Ben likes to help daddy but loud noises scare him!
