This will be the handkerchief doll the prince makes for his sister
This will be the 2 blankets the prince makes for the twins (tied fleece) This will be the pajama pants I am making for everyone. I made some when the prince was little but that was a long time ago, we will see how they turn out :)
Daddy is making shirts (iron-on emblems) for everyone to wear with their pajama pants for Christmas eve and then they can be worn out in the world. The twins are making bookmarks, and I am not sure what the princess is going to be making this year. The two big kids will get a couple of store bought presents but we really want them to realize what this season is all about: giving not receiving and praising God for sending his son!

We went to dance class and found out that her creative movement class will be performing at the Mcallum in June and the costume deposit was already due. I don't know where I have been-(oh wait I was chasing my screaming 2 year-old boys around the dance studio. the past two weeks I haven't had to bring them because the nurse has been here she is so wonderful)-that I didn't know about the performance. So after dance we planned on driving out to yellow mart in Indio to get a cub scout uniform for a very excited cub scout. There was major construction that I had to park very far away and carry the princess through the mud and we had to enter through the back service entrance-it was crazy, I am so glad I didn't have the boys with me!
So they didn't have his size-only youth XL, that would definitely not fit him! So, devastated we left and drove to little Caesars for 2 $5 pizzas and cash back so I could drive back to the dance studio and pay for the costume. Then we had to rush back home before the wonderful nurse had to leave at 6. We got home at 5:50-awfully close! Then the munchkin threw up for the 3rd time today. I think I have figured it out I think it is a combination of teeth pain and we need to change our air filter. He is our air filter sensor, when he starts throwing up-it's time to change the filter. I would prefer that he let us know another way :)
Well that was our Crazy, Crazy day today. I know that many of you will breath a sigh of relief that this day didn't happen to you :) Oh, and I am trying to keep on top of updating my blog, soon maybe I can update and be able to comment on your blogs-I do read every one's blogs-just so you know.
Prince: cough, cough, sniffle
Mom: go get a tissue and I will help you blow your nose (Yes he is almost seven, but the boy HATES to blow his nose and wouldn't if I didn't make him. )
Prince: (after we have taken care of the nose) can I sleep in your bed?
Mom: okay, get in
Prince: Cough, cough My nose is running
Mom: go get a tissue and I'll give you some cough medicine
Mom spills cough syrup on her pants, feet and floor
Return the prince to his bed after I clean up my mess and change my clothes
The bulldozer makes noise when the Prince walks into his room
Prince: Mom, I am still coughing (He is right in front of my face)
Mom: you'll be fine here get in bed with me
(as I roll over I realize that I didn't quite clean my foot good enough so up I walk into the bathroom to wash my foot)
Prince: Mom, I can't sleep. I want to go read my cub scout book
Mom: No, it's too early, go to sleep.
Mom rolls over again only to realize that the other foot is still sticky, so up to clean it.
Prince: my nose is running
Mom: go get a tissue
Prince: the floor is sticky in here where you spilled the cough medicine
Mom: Okay thank you, I'll take care of it later
Brad gets up to use the restroom
Noise coming from the boys room
everyone back in bed
Prince: Mom, I can't sleep
Mom: take a deep breath and let it out slowly, do that 3 times.
Brad's alarm goes off he pushes the sleep button
Brad gets up and now the boys are crying
Mom fetches a bottle and feeds the munchkin while the bulldozer cries.
Brad leaves for work
Bulldozer empties toy buckets in the boys room while Mom lays on their bed
Princess wakes up. first thing said"I don't want to be asleep anymore"
Prince wakes up. first thing said "Did I miss anything??"
Boys were already awake so we all emerged into the living room to begin our very fabulous day
which started with the munchkin throwing up- he is teething and can't stand the pain.
I set the timer for 5 minutes and told the two big kids they had to be dressed, faces washed, teeth brushed before the timer dinged. If they weren't ready they were leaving the house as is. ( they had already been asked to get ready and didn't listen.) Well the timer worked so well. When it went off the prince said "My shoes aren't on-can I put my shoes on?" Princess said the same thing. I told them that the shoes not being on was fine. I was amazed that they did it. I did not have the energy to discuss anything this morning.
I nurse coming today at 10am-6pm to help with the boys. (It's respite care) and Brad has school today but he got off work today at 8:45 so he is here for a little while. I do have parent teacher conference today and the princess has dance lessons this afternoon. I think we will make it though.

The Prince wanted slashes on his
Pinky's (The Princess) Pumpkin
The Princess was sleeping beauty with "New Hair", as she called it
and then another. We let this monkey wear his new leg braces(AFO's) and we held his hands and he walked up to the houses (well stepped). It was so cute.
Daddy wasn't available for this family night he had a lot of homework to do-this one was a couple weeks ago, it was terribly hard to help four kids make pizza but they had fun. The Prince put both sauces-red and pesto, he also put chicken, tomatoes, and any sort of topping I had out. It was so cute and so yummy. It took forever for me to clean up because first I made the pesto sauce from the basil in the backyard. I was going to make my own pizza dough but I ended up buying it at Trader Joe's, thank goodness for that. It is really neat because the kids gets excited now when we say " It's Friday, It's Family Night!" The Princess says "Yeah, Family Night!!!"
