Playin a little catch up...again!

So I of course neglected my blog...just like I'm neglecting many things in life right now...not because I want to, but because having 6 young kids in a tiny home in a place where I haven't yet made friends well, at least friends that i can just dump my kids off at their house (except the ever amazing Kiri, but she's pregnant and I'm not that mean), so other than keeping these kids ailve, entertained, and somewhat involved, I don't get a whole lot of anything else done.  Just today, after living here for 5 months, have I started to decorate a bit.  I'm just REALLY tired of decorating rentals and taking it down a few months later, but I'm also more tired of living in ugly, plain rentals all the time.  So I'm going to work with what little space I have here, and make it cute, uncluttered (which is INSANELY harder than it seems to unclutter 1000 sq ft with 8 people's crap), and LOVE IT!   What I DO a LOT of is this......
 I sit around and make Tru laugh.  It's SO hard for me to put him down when I get him to sleep.  It's got to be the most calming thing int he world to snuggle a chubby sleeping baby....but I need more time to do it!
Also, we had a 10th birthday for Bostone!   He wanted a sports party again...which is this mom's dream party. Just take a bunch of kids and drinks and popsicles to a park with a baseball, soccer ball and football, then they come back and eat cake!  This kid is so awesome.  He's learning to roll his eyes at us, and to put up a bit of a fight when he doesn't want to clean his room, but overall, he's a pretty easy and loving kid.  He's always had a smile that makes everyone else smile.  It's so contagious, as many of his teachers have told us.  He's a gem and I can't believe we've had him for a decade!!!!
 Back to Tru Barrymore.  This was when he was somewhere around 2 or 3 months and just chillin in the "bath" (our laundry sink that he has now outgrown).  Everyone LOVES to come in when Tru takes his bath  It's so much fun to watch him giggle and kick.

 We also had Tru's baby blessing last month and the Bollwinkles.   Grandma Mulder and Gramscile were both able to come.  It was a great evening....even though I was anxious to see what name Jase said since we've been throwing Benson, Anderson and LeGrande out there.
                                                        All of my favorite men ever!!!!
                 Truman and his favorite Grandpa. I need more pictures of this.  These two have a little cuddle or giggle time most everyday.  They're best buddies.
 And us with Tru.  Even though I DREAD cameras for a year or so after each baby, when I look back I LOVE the baby blessing pictures.   Just something great about another one in the books with this guy!






 These two are so great at playing together most of the time. I loved this day when they were playing store and doing some grocery shopping.  They're so great at sharing with each other.  Things only get rough when Pearce realizes he can tease her...then she'l let out a great yell, which she has...a great yell!
