So, we're heading to Seattle this weekend. Driving 14 hours each way, staying in a hotel for 4 nights with 4 kids under 4. No one can ever accuse us of being boring. Crazy, yes. Boring, no. The next several days will be spent getting maintenance done on the van, cleaning it, cleaning the house so it will be clean when we get home on thanksgiving and packing an insane amount of stuff for the 6 of us. Should be fun!

The cold has come. Bring on the fuzzy pants and cream of wheat!

And winter guard. That has come, too. It's looking like it's going to be a great season!

Another Sub Day

It was another subbing day. I quite enjoy taking Clint's classes, especially on days when it's mostly marching band kids. Which is every day. It'd be nice if we could do this a few days a month. Getting out is so nice and doing it in a way that makes money instead if spending it is even better!  Craig stayed home to take Sophie to preschool and swap kids & cars about 10:15 when there's a prep and lunch break. I came home, fed the babies, started laundry, dishes, baby stuff, made lunch, picked up Sophie from preschool and got everyone settled at home before heading back to finish the day. Came home, discussed the baby shower, fed babies, got them settled for naps, read with Sophie, made an important phone call, and took. a. nap. It wasn't long and did require encouraging Sophie to play a reading game but it happened. It's now 6:15 and we're all snuggled in my bed. The laundry isn't done, dishes aren't done, my bathroom didn't get cleaned today and dinner is in the fridge. No guilt at all. Best of all: babies will want to eat soon which means I may get another hour lounge feeding in bed. Bring on the HGTV!

Tomorrow is a much-anticipated UCGC directors meeting and clinic. I'm excited about the clinic and our season. It's already going well! :-D

Just a few notes.

-Halloween week was fun. The big girls enjoyed dressing up- An Intergalactic Ice Queen (Ambassador Troi from Star Trek TNG) and Dorothy- and the babies tolerated it. They were my flying monkeys and I was the wicked witch. Totally fitting. Sophie. Got to wear her costume to ballet class and had a ball doing that. I was in St. George for the state marching band competition on Halloween so they went to errands and had a fun evening with the cousins.

- The last competition of the season was a great one. Wasn't our best performance but the band got 1st in musical performance and 2nd in music general effect. I'm quite proud to be working with this group. Up next: winter guard 2015.

- Babies are 5 months! Still not sleeping through the night but they are cute, scooting, rolling, eating apple sauce & squash and all ours. :) Their baby cousin, Emma, still out-weighs them by at least a pound.
