Another day in Paradise - picked up Sydney and Peyton from daycare (late) @ 4... I wanted to go to the gym at 530 to meet some friends for the Cardio Fushion Class... I pulled into my driveway at 500 - Sydney was screaming because I wouldn't hold her hand while I was driving and she almost threw her shoe out the window along with her socks... of course Ben said I shouldn't have the windows down that far... but Sydney wanted the window down... and hello... I wanted a quiet baby... and in the end... no one really got what they wanted... Ben had made spaghetti for dinner and it was almost finished when I got home. So I tried to get the babies calmed down and ready to eat so I could get to the gym.... well while I was upstairs trying to find my Reebok sports bra.... the world downstairs was shattering. I could hear screaming - Ben, Crying - the kids... so I didn't get to the gym - instead I played referee to a thirty something man, a tween and two wild and crazy toddlers.

Sydney in the far left corner, Peyton creeping up towards us (Courtni & I)
Peyton imitates the poopy pose with Courtni
Ahhh, someone is getting some love
Tastes great... What is this stuff? I think I could use a cup like this all the time mom... you don't mind cleaning up my spills - do you?

Please share you goldfish Sydney - Peyton's exact words
Playing in the sunshine at Grandma and Papa's house
Racing from the shed to mama all the while carrying a cup of apple juice
OOOhhh, who drop they orange?
I love me some sugar cookie chapstick
I'm a sweet sister, I share my chapstick and if you're lucky I'll let you use the chapstick too

Here let me help you Peyton, that's what sisters do... or could it be that she doesn't want to let go of the chapstick, cuz we all know that whoever holds the chapstick rules the world....

it's now 956 and I can still hear the kids, yes all three still wide awake. I've asked them to go to sleep like a billion times. I've gone into their room and put them into bed a bunch of times. I've asked Bianca to go to her own room and sleep... and still I hear three voices coming from one room.... tomorrow morning will be here quicker than I'd like... and I'm sure I'll have three grumpy kids -

Tomorrow Bianca has tryouts for soccer - We'll be out there to cheer her on, lucky girl...

Getting Ready to Welcome Devin

updated!!! Saturday we showered Andria with food, cake, games and gifts for her newest arrival - Devin - well he's arriving sometime in April - there is a bet on the date.... ~lol~

Bianca and I have been getting ready for the last few weeks, gathering decorations and goodies, and finally putting everything together on Friday night and Saturday morning.... I've been gone a lot the last month or so.. and I was very happy that it all came together so nicely.

MIL made Chiliquilas - everyone's favorite. We had regular salad and fruit salad - wow we went through almost two buckets of fruit - keepin everyone as healthy as we can. The Mango, Kiwi and grapes seemed to be the most popular fruit.

My sister Amy, sister in law Carmen & Cousin Joan all came over to help set up for the party - Thank you..
We got the best cake ever from my friend Adrianna - it was beautiful and tasted way to good to eat... but when you have a pregnant woman in the house... everything needs to be eaten ~wink wink~ I was very happy with everything. Andria's mom Linda was the mamarazzi.....Here are a few pictures from the party. I can't get blogger to upload any pics... ~pouts~ Check out Andria's blog for more pictures
