blah bla blah's been a blogg-n while. I know so many of you could put me to shame with mother of 7, mother of 5 , mother of twins, mother of every kid one year apart of Three...wowie! I feel like the day is over before it's begun and all I have to show for it is my bed that is made. (It's the one thing that I HAVE to do if I do nothing else all day!!) Lately, I've been making great strides though...I at least get my work out clothes ON...some mornings I make it to the treadmill or break out my Turbo Jam video, most others I just pretend I worked out and hope my Mind Powers trick my brain into actually thinking I worked out.

So here's the latest: Charlie is sooooo cute and sooo fun! Smiling and giggling when we sing do a deer from the Sound of Music to him. Jack loves to sing him the song he wrote called "You're So Smart" which he repeats about 100 times. Max is a good helper always making sure Charlie has his binkie and reminds him to "shhhh" when we say prayers.

MAD MAX: he is crazy and into everything and climbs up everything and swings from everything and breaks everything and eats everything and must be NAKIE or in JAMMIES all day! But...capitol "B" we think he is the cutest and funniest and cuddliest little bug ever so we've decided not to ship him off just yet.

he's ticked that I made him take the plate of cookies back to the table.

So when I find the sweet crazy boy like this...I just leave him there.

JACK: has been the best big brother and is growing up WAY WAY too fast! He is shredding it on the slopes this year and is always looking for jumps and trees to ski through....ahhh a boy after my own heart. We've had fun skiing with him this year and it won't be long before Ted and I can't keep up with the Bonsai Bullet!

This is the new tunnel they built at Snowbird that leads you to some pretty difficult bowl skiing. Big mistake...Jack wasn't quite ready for that one! While you're in the tunnel they have some U2 playing and jack says "I'm not scared mom...this music is calming me down."

I am glad you are all still alive...I love that Max is mister mischief...That always keeps things interesting. Makay is on his way to the same future.

I like all your "blah blah blah" kind of reminds me of all the "blah blah" that goes on over here.
You are looking so great...the "mind" workouts are working wonders...LUCKY!

How dang cute are those boys!? Max is totally the second child with his mischievious little/big personality. Love it. And Charlie is going to have to grow up fast to keep up with his brothers. It makes me sick that Jack is skiing like that and I've never been. Maybe if I liked the cold. Keep having fun with those little ones. It goes way too fast.

We need to have Max over to play. He reminds me of Madison. Pajamas, Pajamas...all day long. I don't know why I bought her other clothes because they get no use. And sometimes it's just not worth the battle. With excerise...fake it til you make it!

Jen, it's so good to see what's going on with you and the kids. I've missed you! Don't you dare be hard on yourself. My bed's not made and I'm still working on the computer in my work out clothes that haven't yet seen the sweat. We all do our best ... and your best looks pretty darn amazing!

Love ya.

I love those boys! They are all boy it's almost scary, and your baby is adorable, those pictures of him are dang cute. I also think it's great that you let Max wear jammies to Costco, you're a good mom, my girls have asked to wear tutu's and princess dresses to the store and I just can't let them do it.
