Great mother's day gift idea

I would like to introduce my new best friend..."Roomba".

If you haven't heard of this wonderful invention...let me quickly fill you in. Roomba is a vacuum that moves around your house by itself! You just push a button and voila! it's magically off making your life better. AND when it's done it finds it's way back to the docking station to re-charge.

I got my new best friend for my birthday from my mom and mother-in-law.
The first night i used it was when i realized it's more than just a household help...it's a NANNY!

Bruce and i sat at the dinner table having wonderful conversation while the Roomba cleaned my floors and entertained my children. The boys followed "Rumbo" (as quade as named him) all around the house.

Oh, another perk of my new best friend is that the boys clean up their clutter due to the fear that "Rumbo" may vacuum it up! i'm telling you it's the best invention ever!!

little discoveries

With three boys around it's hard to keep track of them all, all the time.

This is what i found on the counter after dinner.

On April 13, 2010 Quade scored his first goal! Prior to that day quade loved to just run around the field and "pose" and pretend to be playing soccer...which was hilarious and great. He still does it.
BUT once he scored a goal something clicked and he is actually trying to kick the ball now.

The best part is that he is having fun and getting exercise!
(these are pics from that game, not necessarily of the goal...hard to capture that exact moment while entertaining a 2 yr old and feeding a 8 month old)

Since we've scaled back quade's time in school, we have more time at home, which has been good on so many levels.
In this instance it allowed me the opportunity to say "yes" when quade had the idea that morning that we needed to have a lemonade stand.

Price was his first customer
Once price was sugar-high on lemonade, he started marketing (aka yelling at our neighbors that ventured outside). They legitimately sold 2 glasses of lemonade. making $1.50

Watch out world! The Mac Brothers are coming!

Easter 2010

We were in San Antonio for Easter with Bruce's sister Sherri. Easter morning we were rushing to get 6 boys aged 5 and under to church on time...so the typically Easter day pics were taken in the parking lot at the restaurant we ate that day.
These are the boys that day.

boys don't do flowers

Fortunately i have come to accept and enjoy the fact that boys and flowers just aren't quite the same as girls and flowers. AND trying to get a cute pic of all 3 boys, looking at me, in cute matching monogrammed outfits with flowers in the background is impossible.

So what i do is just show up...and put them all in the same general area and take as many pics as i can...just capturing the stage of life i'm in and the fact that i have 3 sweet boys that don't need to smile to show personality.

could they look more bored?
um, yeah
love this one
the best pic of the day, thanks to some stranger who felt pity for me and tried to get their attention.
