july has come to an end

gosh, it's been forever since i blogged. i always check everyone else's blog in the morning when i first get up but never post myself. let's see, i'm going to have to grab a calendar to see what we've done the past month. july is so crazy with 3 birthdays and our anniversary.

my dh celebrated his 37th birthday and we celebrated our 9th anniversary. we went out and had a nice dinner without the kidlets, but that's about it.

the twins had a birthday party at their school on july 18th, and i had a clown show up to surprise them. it was really cute, and the kids had a lot of fun. my friend made little clown cupcakes, the kids made clown hats, and wore cute little clown noses. they had fun :o)

we had the twins' real birthday party last friday night at the base pool. they had a blast with about 20 friends coming to celebrate their birthday. we didn't even bother opening all the presents at the pool that night. first of all, they would have been fighting over who got to open which presents. then they would have wanted to open everything all the way and play with all of them. lastly, we only had the pool for 2 hours and didn't want to pull the kids out of the pool to have them watch the boys open presents. PLUS, parenting magazine says it's okay to not open the gifts at the actual party. some may consider it tacky, but parenting magazine says it's appropriate.....there, you have it.....credible source :o) the next morning they had so much fun opening gifts. they are so spoiled rotten. they have so much stuff, we have nothing to get them for christmas....nothing. i don't know what we're going to do!!!!! i haven't downloaded all those pictures yet. they are on a different camera.......i'll get to it eventually.

caden and cam's teachers gave them these darling little japanese outfits for their birthday. cam doesn't like to wear his.....bennett loves to though! the pants are too long for him, so he just wears the robed shirt :o) he really hams it up for the camera these days!

that's all for now. i have to go feed these kids. bailey has a baseball game in 45 minutes, and i don't think my dh will be home in time to take him. speaking of sports.....caden and cam start soccer next monday, they will also start gymnastics next month. bennett will start mommy & me gymnastics next month too :o) bailey is still doing tennis. i am taking tennis with him right now too. my sore elbow and shoulder reminded me too add that to the blog.

my bootcamp is sucking! i work my ass off every day and am only getting minimal results! i know i've lost body fat and inches (all of my clothes are loose), but i've actually gained 2 pounds. i'm not happy about that.....oh well. i have 4 more weeks to go, then i'll do my own thing! i know i'll stick with it though, because i am addicted to going to the gym and getting a good workout :o)

sayonara for now!
