I just finished making peanut butter cookies. I switched it up a little and tried to make it a little healthier by adding a secret ingredient. I was a little worried that they would taste funny, but they're actually really good. I'm very pleased, but I do need to tweak it just a little for texture's sake. I think I need to take the day off! I have discovered that I like baking (when I'm not being bombarded by children), so that can be relaxing at least. I need to get a new camera so we can take more pictures. I only have Scott's iPhone to work with.  :(

Here are some attempts at a group photo... They're hard to work with!

Quick Post

I figured out that regular napping will help me survive my weekend routes. It's a little tough, but it's a good thing the kids all sleep at the same time or I might die. I think I'll survive tough. Scott and I watched Twilight last night. It was really good! I was pretty indifferent about seeing it, but I'm glad we got it because I ended up really enjoying it. I might actually try to read the books. Who knows? We're planning on getting Netflix again in a couple weeks and that means I can rent all the seasons of the Biggest Loser. I just started watching it this season and have become a little addicted. I was a bit sad because the finale is next week, but now I get to check out the old seasons and see what they were like. Yay! Tomorrow night (while we watch the Biggest Loser) I'm supposed to be Lynn's hair stylist. She gets to go to a fun dance in Tennessee and I'm supposed to make her look beautiful I guess. we tried and up-do last week and now we're going to see what we can do with it down. Fun fun! I better go... getting sleepy.

Work and Play

I just finished my first week of delivering papers. So far it's working out. The kids have been playing at my grandma's house everyday while I'm out on my route. They have a pretty good time with their new swing set and bouncer. This weekend nearly killed me though. Today, I've been up since 4am! The kids just went to sleep so I plan on taking a nap myself in a few minutes. Hopefully I can ignore all the distractions.

Ian got his first 2 teeth the other day! If I hadn't been checking them on a regular basis I would have never known. He wasn't fussy or anything. It was amazing! Just one more thing to prove he is the best baby ever! Haha... not that the girls are horrible... Abby apparently also just popped out 2 more teeth. She was crabby though so I could tell something was going on. Oh well, hopefully it will be over soon.

Here are some pictures of them with their new toys!

I'm happy to say that we finally got the internet. It's been weird adjusting to looking at things on an actual computer instead of an iPhone though. A lot has changed since my last post I guess, so i don't even know where to begin! Emma and Abby are talking like crazy and Ian, at 6.5 months, is almost sitting up. He is the happiest, most content baby I have ever seen! We've been enjoying the weather with trips to the zoo and Henry's Ark. Fun Fun Fun! They love the animals. 

I'm starting my new job tomorrow. It's not much of a job really, but I got a paper route. So it's a little extra money and very flexible. I can even take the kids with me if necessary. That's my kind of job! We are going to be trying to save money and get on track financially - for us, that really means no eating out! So if anyone has any healthy, easy, kid-friendly recipes let me know! We're trying to eat a little better and it's working (for Scott). He's lost about 30 lbs in the last 6 months or so! I can't think of anything to write right now so i give up. Here's a picture!!
