"Not Me" Monday!
Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
I did NOT ask Dave if I could use his dremel on my feet. My heels are definitely NOT rough like sandpaper from being barefoot as much as humanly possible. I have dainty, girly feet that are soft as a baby's butt. (By the way, Dave did NOT deny me of his dremel... in fear that I would burn up the motor.)
When taking our trip to the Indianapolis Zoo this week, we decided to stay on a very tight budget and spend next to no money. It was pretty easy, considering we already have a membership to the Zoo and we packed our own lunch. So when it was dinner time, we definitely did NOT drive right past a McDonald's that had 25 cent chicken nuggets and head straight towards a steakhouse where we spent $60 on our dinner. Noooo.... it would have cost us a mere $10 to eat at the McDonalds, we definitely would NOT have passed up that opportunity!
My 2-year-old definitely did NOT have a 45 minute pout fest one day this week. He would NEVER throw a fit over not getting a third cup of chocolate milk before 9:00 a.m.. He is NOT my most stubborn one of the bunch. My kids are very well behaved. Perfect Angels. He would NEVER do such a thing! His face tells the story of his innocence.... My husband has NOT been showing my kids Weird Al Yankovic videos on YouTube. Those songs are totally ridiculous and we only let our kids watch educational videos. The kids have NOT loved the dumb songs and begged to see more! My 2 year-old has NOT asked me 3 times today if we can "Pleeeeease watch 'Eat It' bideo".
I am married to the most crazy awesome man of my dreams! We are the best of friends and are nuts about each other after 11 years of marriage. The Lord has blessed us so far with 7 beautiful children! Dave is a Journalist for our local newspaper. I am a "stay-at-home" mother and I LOVE IT!!!
Ashton, 11 years old, is my laid back, easy going...dangerously smart guy!
Taelyn and Mariya
Taelyn and Mariya,8, are our first set of twins. They are identical twins and have so many similarities in personality as well! Taelyn (right) is my cute little loving drama queen...not to mention, my "mini me"! She has MOM written all over her. Mariya (left) is my kissable little sweetie. She is such an awesome big sis, and those boys have her wrapped around their little fingers! (They were born completely healthy at 38 weeks, weighing almost 6 lbs a piece.)
Bryson, 5 years old, is the spunky one of the bunch. He is my strong-willed, but oh so loving, comedian! 100% BOY from the word GO!
Nolan and Nevin
Nolan and Nevin, 3, are our second set of twins. They are fraternal twins and have quite a few differences in personalities. Nolan (right) is my old soul of the group. He is so quiet and gentle, but causes absolute chaos with his "stealth-like" ways! Nevin has rotten written ALL over his face. He is not nearly as onery as he comes off. He is a bit stubborn and we believe, he is actually suppose to be Bryson's twin. =) (They were born completely healthy at 36 weeks, Nolan weighing almost 6 lbs and Nevin weighing almost 7 lbs.)
Our newest little guy was born on April 8th, 2010. He is such a sweet baby and fills our hearts with joy! He is very loved and spoiled by every member of the family!
