Me, I am stuck at home with the little ones. I love being home with my babies. I am alittle disappointed I couldn't go with them to see their reaction though. Hubby took the camera and has my orders to get good pictures. I miss them already. I am just telling myself its only until tomorrow.

We have never had any water in this room but its still a basement and there is still a small chance of it happening. So I am happy with a painted floor for now.
We will be adding an area rug in the room.
I still can not believe how much more inviting the room feels with the little work we have done to it. Its amazing what a little paint can do. The girls were super excited when we were checking out the floor last night to see if it was dry.
The big girls started running in circles and Maddison was dancing!
Oh and just to show you my cute little girl, Maddison!
Oh and if you can't tell by the picture the floor is tan with red, brown, black and dark tan sprinkles.

I am thinking a white curtain for that ugly window. What do you think?

I'll just keep this short and tell you it was an interesting experience. Trying to get 5 kids to smile and be alert when we needed them to was a challenge. The photographer did a wonderful job though. I am glad we did this.

Lastnight Jade and Abby had their Christmas program for School. My parents came to town and joined us for the Christmas music. The program started with a prayer and then the school band played. The band was only about 8 students! Then the wonderful hand bell group played the bells. Jade is one of the bell players. Once a week she stays after school for about an hour and practises bells. This is her second year and she loves it.
Jade getting ready to walk in playing her bells. They even have to wear gloves to protect the bells.

We have the girls' Christmas program tonight for school. They have the program at another location because of the size of the gym school. They wanted to walk the children over there today to practise. Its about a mile walk and they would have to cross Highway 210. A main road in this town and a busy one. Well now that a few of us made comments to the principle (yes, I was one of them) they are going to be bussed. FOR $1. Each child who wants to ride the bus had to pay a $1. You don't pay you don't ride. I guess that's part of going to a private school. You pay for every little thing possible.
Hubby has to go shopping yet for presents for his oldest son since we have Christmas with his on Christmas Eve Morning. Nothing like waiting until the last minute.
Oh I think I am just a bit crabby today so I will end my post here. Probably for the best!

My dad and brothers have their own M tractor!
Mason slept most of the time while we opened presents!
Maddison got a puppy! Its not real but it does bark.
Grandpa Roger got a new ford truck for his Christmas present from Grandma Robin! So we got him some jumper cables. They are also in the process of getting a new bathroom in their house we got grandma some new bath towels. There was a ton of presents and I think we got enough to cancel the rest of our presents but the girls did not agree.
Yesterday we traveled to my Uncle/ godfather's house. One of my cousins just turned 16 this last week and one my other cousin (they are brother and sister) graduated from College. So we took a drive to their house to help them celebrate. Its been a long time since I have been there. It was a couple hour drive. One of the neat things was I got to show Jade the church I was baptized at and also made my 1st communion at. Jade is working on her 1st communion preparation now so she thought that was neat. She was also baptised when she was 6 so she remembers it well. I then got to show everyone the house I lived in when I was a baby. Only Jade found it interesting. That I lived in a brown house from the day I came home from the hospital until I was in 3rd grade and my grandparents lived next door in a green house. My uncle then lived next to my grandparents. Only my Uncle is still there. It was a long drive and ended with a long night. We got home around 8:45pm but Maddison slept most of the way home so she insisted on a bath when we got home. She really wanted to take one at the party but I didn't think that would have been right to start giving my child a bath during a party. Even if it was my uncle's house. So anyways, Maddison was up until 11pm! It was also nice we were able to attend the party because my aunt/godmother was there and she hadn't met Maddison or Mason yet.

Are you ready?
This little guy I call my baby boy has his first tooth coming in. Yes, he really does!
Its on his lower left! I just love this picture of him!
Oh and just so you know I didn't forget and also so that you all don't forget today is my sister's birthday! And her baby Faith is 5 months old today! Yippie! What a great day! You can check out her blog here! Oh my goodness I did it! I did the link thing! So yeah, just click on here and it will take you to her blog. Wow, I learned something new today!
Ok now I have to go call my mother. She'll want to know about this tooth before someone comments they read my blog. She isn't a blog/ computer type of woman.

So we headed home and enjoyed some chips and salsa for a bedtime snack with our
