The babes are 6 months...and I'm still alive! j/k Honestly, it's really not as hard as it may seem. We have days that are difficult, but most of the time we do fine. These babies are so sweet and happy and our whole family feels blessed to have them. They had their 6 month appt. on the 25th and are still so tiny on the growth charts. Owen weighed in at 16.2 and Lily 15.9. They are in the 30th percentile for weight and 57th for height.

Every year the girls bring home a flyer for the local high school's cheer clinic, and every year I say, "maybe next year girls." This year I decided to let them do it. It consisted of a few days of cheer practice and some sideline cheering and halftime performance at Fridays game. My parents are in town and watched the babies and Ava for me while I took the girls to the game. The girls were a little disappointed to find out that they only got to cheer in one game, but now they are wanting to do another clinic when basketball season arrives.

The kiddos and I loaded up the MV and headed to Vegas for the night. Paul is nearly off his probationary period with LVFR and so we wanted to go and check out his station and meet all his coworkers. The girls thought it was fun to see daddy at work. We checked out every nook and cranny of Station 1-the largest in all of Vegas. I've been putting off going for quite some time, just because it's a long drive with 5 kids, not to mention staying in a hotel by myself with all of them. It turned out great though. We all had a great time. Valet and a bellman do wonders. We even got upgraded to a suite. Paul met up with us the next morning. We spent the day at the pool and then headed home.

Both Anna and Lainie are playing soccer this season. (Forgot to snap a few of Anna's game, will do that one of these Saturdays.) This is Lainie's first game and first year.I was quite nervous for her to play...I thought for sure she would tire out quickly and play with her hair on the field-after all she is our little princess. She did great though. I found her clapping and cheering on the other girls while she was on the field, she thought it was great fun. I'm not sure this is her "thing" but as long as she enjoys herself, that is fine for me.
