The babies

Since Addi is in school, the little girls have been getting a lot of attention. Let me just say that these girls are such a joy. They love each other but like most sisters can fight and annoy each other, which to be honest is kind of funny sometimes.

My Sydnee is such a sweet-heart. Since she is 4 and her speech isn't very good we will be taking her to speech therapy to help. She is so smart and does know what things are but has a hard time pronouncing them which does cause frustration for both her and I.

I just love this picture of her at the playground.

Kim kim is something else. She definitly knows that she is the baby and gets away with it. She's bossy to her sisters, she has attitude, but she loves sitting with me and Aaron watching movies, being sweet, and is just plain silly.

Who doesn't like bubbles?!

They both have thier daddy's smile.

4th of July watching Dad and Addi set off some fireworks.

Yes, she dressed herself that day.

This summer I was asked to join a mud volleyball team for charity. The charity is to help prevent school drop-outs and support the surrounding schools and community. What a great cause to support! The event is every August and this year it was held Buffalo Springs Lake.

Our Team name was 'Mud In Mud Out' Must of us work at AT&T and were very pumped that morning.

 Of course, I picked number 5 for my girls and my name was 'Chica Loca'

This was after our first game (which we played a total of 5)

 Me and one of my besties Natalie

Let me tell you, it is not easy to play in mud and water. This was our last game, we had lost all 4 before this one.

Aaron surprised me and brought the little girls out to watch and play in the mud.

Needless to say they had a blast getting dirty!

I didn't realize how muddy we got until the pictures were uploaded.

 We were starting to get pretty down that we hadn't won a game all day and then our last game we kicked some butt and won! We had a team mud fight, some adult beverages, laughs, and a great Saturday!

Tiger Royals

My baby brother Carson had his very first football game today. We all went out to support him and the Friendship Tiger Royals. Watching these little guys play is super fun and cute. He still has some learning to do but he did try 100%

He plays as a safety and here is a picture with his coach.

 Picture isn't so great since they were staring right into the sun and it was 80 outside.

 Aww there he is number 80 waiting to play. They won 18-6 woohoo!

 Again, I am so proud of Carson and I'm really excited to watch him every game this season. 

1st Grade

My sweet Addison started 1st grade this year.

 I so love her humor and imagination. Here she is as a robot.
 It seems like it was just yesterday that she was a sweet bright eyed baby and now she is becoming such a big girl :)

 Yep, we have to get a goofy 'first day of school' photo.

Before I know it she will be in High School!

 Super Hero Addi! Where does she come up with this stuff? LOL

Holiday Planning in July

Yes, I know I am about 5 months early however with working full time, 5 little ladies, and a tight budget I need to get my ducks in a row. Of course since I have found the amazing world of Pintrest the ideas are flowing!

This year for the girls we are going to do clothes since they have wwwaaayyy too many toys to begin with. Aaron is a little more tricky but I will get that figured out lol. For friends and family Im going to be doing some homemade gift baskets because personally I think that is more sentimental, don't you?

For the past few years, I have done a friend's Thanksgiving the beginning of November and this year will be no different. I like to be the one that not only hosts but I love doing the majority of the cooking. Of course, this year Aaron has convinced me to just do the turkey, stuffing, and potatoes and have everyone else bring the other dishes. This should help with the 'Holiday Nazi' I always become. Hey, what can I say, I love hosting and have being able to entertain. (I most get that from my Nana) 

I've also decided to do a Ladies Only Cookie Exchange the beginning of December. I love the idea of exchanging recipes, eating finger foods, and of course WINE!

Here are some ideas I've found on Pintrest already:
Pinned Image

Just cut a cream cheese block on the diagonal to have the pieces to make a tree shape.  Then add some bell pepper decorations and some pepper jelly (and Wheat Thins of course), and you have acute appetizer!
Christmas Tree Cheese

Applesauce & Cinnamon Ornament/Gift Tags. Super fun and they smell amazing!!

I'll be doing a weekly Pintrest finds so stay tuned!

Kindle Fire

For Christmas my husband gave me a Kindle Fire. I was absolutly thrilled because I had been wanting one for a long time. I liked the iPad but couldn't fathom paying $600+ for one.

It fits in my purse so I can take it to work and I love all the apps I can get on it. My girls love playing Angry birds and other little apps that I have downloaded on it. I have read a few books on it but mostly I read my magazines to save on growing a huge collection!

Only downsides that I have experiance is that even though it is a Android OS you can only get Amazon approved android apps and some videos will not play. However, for the price of $199 and the size I think its a awesome buy!

WOOO!  Has is been a crazy 8 months here in the Klein house. From moving, stitches, Holidays, loss of our puppy, family visits, and working, there hasn't been much time to blog. So if you have kept checking up to see if I have updated then I am thankful to you for sticking around :)

A pref recap:

Shelby and Kenzie are doing great is school as always and are super excited about summer.

Addison is improving on reading and spelling and is ready to finally be in a numbered grade. She will be 6 on May 2nd and growing into a gorgeous girl.

Sydnee is still very shy and sometimes we worry about her speech and not being up to her age level. That is a different post.

Kimber is talking up a storm, in love with baby dolls, and just turned 2 on April 18th. We didnt do much for her this year because she is only 2 and just had a family day.

Our poor Devon (german shepard) was unfortunatly hit by a car after we had moved into our new home in November and we have missed her ever since. She was only 6 months old however in January we were blessed to recieve two new german shepard puppies, a brother and sister named Dakota and Durango. They are 4 months old and getting big and have been a great addition to our family.

As for me I am still working hard and making the best of every day and trying to do all that God has planned for us. So stay tuned I have some reviews Ill be doing, tons of pictures and great topics Ill be writing :)
