how do you make it seem so easy?

I mean how do some of you moms blog so often? You are amazing! I have a friend who just moved and blogged while traveling! How? I can't even blog at home. Anyway, things have been getting back to what the new normal is, I guess? I mean everything is new. New house, new school, new baby, new job, new calling in church (enrichment leader). I'm even trying to make new foods. Chris was complaining that I have cooked the same food for 6 years. My argument - I COOK! Anyway, I am tired of my food too. My cousin has a cooking blog, you should try her creamy Italian chicken recipe. It is delicious! And it's a wonderful crock pot meal, I think those are the best. You should try some of her other recipes too, I also made pizza! Yum. The month so far:

The Papa's and Colter. They were here for the blessing. My mom was too but my camera seemed to be missing that whole weekend.While they were here we went to see the arch! It is just huge. And the kids pretended to like each other while we were there.

Canyon is playing T-ball this summer and while he is playing Sheridan rolls around in the dirt, literally. T-ball is funny. Just like any pee-wee sport all the kids chase the ball and half of the parents are standing on the field trying to keep the peace and some organization. Canyon has confused T-ball with soccer and tackle football both this season.
Sheridan and I stay home and make treats while canyon is at school. I know she is just the cutest girl but things have been a little more rough now that Canyon isn't home to blame things on.

This guy eats like a champ (maybe its all the rice krispie treats I'm eating). He may have started my smallest but he is quickly making up for it. At one month he was already 10-10. At that rate he will pass up his very big brother's growth rate very quickly. I love the little chubber.

Lacy you crack me up! The rest of us moms probably have less than three kids and certainly don't have a newborn!

We drove through St. Louis briefly (very briefly as we were running very behind schedule) on our way from Kansas City to Dayton, Ohio. We stayed with Brent and Michelle as our half way point to Rochester NY. We are living in Palmyra for 6 weeks while David works out here. We love it! We head back to KC in 6 weeks. We would love to see you guys on our way back!

The arch is HUGE. We definitely plan to go up the elevator on our way back! It was amazing!

Also, I love that your kids "pretended" to like each other. Too funny.

Love chunky babies. SO KISSABLE.

What a sweet baby! I love a chubba baby. I'm so proud of you for cooking at all. I haven't quite mastered that skill, so tell Chris to count his blessings. I guess I need to check out your cousins blog. The kids are cute, and getting big.

So once again, I feel no desire for a little baby ( don't worry, I still want to squeeze little Colter all up and give him all the love in the world - just not baby hungry ), but one look at Sheridan and Canyon and I'm super kid hungry. Yeah... I'll just skip the baby stage and take the 3 year old and up. I'm so excited to see you next month! =D

The kids are adorable! I miss all of you terribly. I love the chunky thighs on Colter. He's beautiful, and certainly has his very own look.
Are his feet as huge as they look?

Rita said...

How cute is your little Colter! I am for sure going to try your cousins recipe, it sounds yummy. I am with Jaymie I hardly cook, I need to try some new foods too.

Ok, I just want to squish little Colter!! He is adorable!! I can't believe how big all the kids are getting. They are all just so dang cute!! And Sheridan has so much hair!
As for my blogging on the road, we all know it's just a bunch of pictures not much on the witty side. Oh, well sometime I will have more time to come up with clever things to say. LOL! Nice to know someone is reading. : )
Miss you guys!!
ps Scott put his residency application in today. Cross you fingers for us.
