Home Sweet Home

My parents are home!! They are back from Chile where they served a mission. I can't tell you how happy I am to finally have them safe home. It was pretty scary for a while there because about a month after they got to Conception they experieced a 8.8 massive earthquake. Their apartment was on the 11th floor so as you can imagine we were extremely worried when we heard the news .My mom says it was by far the most terrifiying thing she's ever been through. I still remember that day being sick to my stomach not knowing if they were ok. I'm so happy that they are home now and I'm very grateful for their service and what a great example they are to our family.

A year and half ago right before they left. It's crazy how so much as changed but at the same time having them home now feels like they never left.

Other random news. Pierce is now 10 months and he is almost walking like a pro. He loves all the attention he can get and he thinks he pretty cool when he walks. He is growing up so fast but he is still my sweet baby who loves to cuddle.

We bought a scooter a little while ago. We got it for Mike to commute to work. It's pretty funny seeing him on it. He looks a little ridiculous but hey we are saving a ton on gas money. We joked that he is going to start tagging along with some motorcyle packs and cruise the open roaad. The kids think it's the coolest thing. They now have to go outside every morning and send him off.

I'm excited to go out for a date night on this sweet ride but we havn't even been on it together yet. However these two have. It was hilarious watching them. I just hope I get a turn sometime soon.

So for the last few days I have been watching my brother's three kids and then today I had the two kids that I babysit once a week. Yahh kinda crazy. I've been feeling a lot like the crazy kid lady. Kids everywhere you look. But really we had such a fun weekend and I'm not going to lie I was nervous about today but it went really good. The kids had so much fun playing together. The favorite thing to do is play hide and seek. They pretty much do it all day long. Meal times were kind of a joke but besides that it was great. Plus magic happened and all 8 kids napped together so I was still able to have my alone time to help keep me sane:)

They all dressed up and we had a dance party. Note to self I am in serious need of dress ups. Mike's old do rags aren't cutting it anymore. Photobucket

These two had a blast together. Pierce was so interested in Pace, he would follow him everywhere. Even though Pierce would try and steal everything he played with they still remain best friends.

Friday before I had Dan's kids was Cow Appreciation Day at Chick Fila. I love that place!! We had so much fun. I dressed up the kids and went down there and got free meals. It was amazing! The things I'd do for free food.

I'm ashamed to say it but I did double dip in the free food. Mike wanted to go too so we went there and to a movie for date night.
