wordless wednesday - Christmas

6 months old

I don't like saying how old he is out loud because that only makes me think about how fast time flew by and if the first six months went by that fast, it will only go faster until he's a year. :(

We all just adore our little Trey. He's so ticklish and happy all the time. I probably said it about my other boys, but this time I really mean it... I don't think there could be a better baby... ever!

Enjoy the picture overload. :)
Not the cutest angle, but I love his smile

One of the first times he discovered his feet

Playing with Aunt Vannessa

My poor boys haven't been able to play much in the snow this winter because I'm a wimp and don't want to go outside and freeze. Luckily Aunt Vannessa came over for a while and helped them have some freezing cold fun!

Snowflake Ornaments

For Easton's class Christmas Party I volunteered to bring a craft for the kids to make and found a cute idea for making snowflake ornaments. I think they turned out so cute!

The top one is the one Aunt Vannessa made while she was at our house and the second in this picture is the one Easton made at school. (One of the best in his class :)
I had Cole and Peyton make some at home so I could take them to the school for examples. I didn't tell them what to do, just put the objects, glitter and glue on the table and let them have at it. :)

These are the 3 Peyton made all by himself! I didn't help him with glue or glitter. I was so amazed at what he did. If you notice in the top one, he even did little dots of glitter glue! He's only 2!

These are the 3 Cole made. I absolutely love the one with only buttons. So cute!!

Family Pictures

We had our family pictures taken in November. I really love how they turned out! I'm only putting a few here but if you want to look at more I put some on Facebook.

Unfortunately we didn't get any pictures of Trey by himself. He did really good while doing the pictures of all of us but then he fell asleep and got really mad when I tried to wake him up. Just like his dad. :)

A great Christmas idea for your hubby...

There's this blog I follow and LOVE! She is so creative and has so many great ideas for dates and romance with your husband. She just posted the absolutely cutest idea for a homemade present for your husband and I love it so I wanted to share it.

Check it out! Date of the Month Club from Love, Actually

P.S. She has at the bottom that you can purchase (for $9.99) everything she's already done, which I'm not suggesting, unless of course you'd like to. If any of you are going to make it, let me know, maybe we can help each other out and not pay the money, cause I'm not going to pay anyways, even though that would be nice.

Feeling lucky?

Let me start by saying I am NOT posting this for me to try and win anything, I just want someone I know to win something that I got to review.

I have been a regular poster for 3 Boys & a Dog for a couple months now. I regularly write the Freebie Friday post. I also get the chance to do some reviews.

I reviewed a fun Mealtime Manners Placemat, which I was VERY skeptical of at first, but ended up really liking. Anyways, along with the review is a giveaway. (I won't describe the placemat since that would just be redundant, it's all on the post here.)

You can win a placemat. (It's only $5, but hey, who doesn't like winning something?) To win the placemat you don't have to be a follower, subscriber or do anything on twitter (although you can do those for more entries). For one entry you just have to say what your biggest struggle is at mealtime. Just click here. It's kind of long, just scroll down.

I just wanted to share because I'd love for someone I know to win it! :) So just go do the first entry and then you can forget all about it. There are hardly any entries, so chances are real good. And for you that don't have kids, you can still enter - use it for TJ or Curtiss ;) until you have kids - or my boys would like another. (But I promise that wasn't why I wrote this! Promise!)

Are you kidding me?

I've scheduled family pictures for us soon and was trying to make sure our clothes looked okay together. I had everyone put on the clothes I had picked out and asked them to just stand together while we took a couple pictures, just so I could see how they looked. Never once did any of us say "smile". I think we may have just counted to three and taken the picture. In every single one of these pictures the boys are looking at the camera, smiling and looking adorable! What in the world? If you've read any of my other posts, you know I have the hardest time getting all 4 to look at the camera, let alone smile at the same time. Good grief! I can only hope they're as cooperative when we get pictures taken.

Just ignore Seth's dorky and yucky looking faces!!

All 4 looking and smiling. P.S. I'm super annoyed at Seth being lame, because otherwise this would have been my new favorite picture!
Picture that Easton took, but the other 3 are looking at the camera

4 super adorable looking boys! Bugged I didn't fix my hair a little, because this picture would have been cute too.

Wordful Wednesday - First Taste

The pictures aren't the best, I was trying to take them while feeding him.
He was so excited when he saw me actually aiming the spoon towards him instead of me. And he did very well for his first time trying it. Too bad it makes me sad he's actually old enough to be trying it.

Wordless Wednesday - Halloween

These 3 pictures show just how difficult it is get a good one of all 4 boys at the same time. Or maybe it's just me needing to get better photography skills.

Easton and Trey look good (I think this was the last one we took and Cole said Trey was getting too heavy)
Easton and Cole look decent
Hmm... maybe Peyton looks alright
Puppy (What all 4 boys have been their first Halloween :)
I realized the sun and lighting was bad as I was taking the picture, but didn't want to go thru the hassle of moving the boys.
