That's What I Get For Eavesdropping

A few days ago, I was in a really fowl mood. I know that's hard for some of you to believe, but trust me it happens. It was late in the evening, I had just given the kids dinner, and pretty much was grumpy the whole time. I don't even remember what I was frustrated about, but I was taking it out on the kids. In the midst of all this, Mike called to say he was on his way home. I was glad because I was feeling really tired and needed the help putting the kids to bed. I also think I was getting sick. Anyway Mike got home, but then ended up getting a page that he had to respond to, so I took the kids in and helped them brush their teeth etc. Usually one of us goes up with them, reads a few books, helps them say prayers and tucks them in. I was feeling too grumpy and sick and Mike was still on the phone, so I told them to just go up, say prayers, get into bed and I would be up in a minute. I layed down on the couch and listened. Abbie said her prayer and got into bed and Landon immediately started calling down because I had "forgotten" to help him say his. He was getting pretty upset and I heard Abbie say "I'll help you Landon." I didn't think he would let her because he usually only wants me to help him do stuff, but he tearfully said "Ok Abbie." I walked to the bottom of the stairs to listen thinking I would hear something pretty funny. This is what I heard " Please bless that Mommy won't be grumpy tomorrow..." Yea, not so funny. Mike thought it was hilarious though. I offically award myself the 'Worst Mom of the Year Award'

Nine Years.....Holy Crap!

Happy Anniversary Mike! I'd like to say that each year keeps getting better and better, but we have three small (and somewhat crazy) kids, two years left in residency and lots of student loans and you know what.....

I wouldn't change it for anything! Thanks for working so hard for us. I love you so much!!!

Happy Birthday America, oh yeah...and Mike!

Mike always chooses to celebrate his birthday by shooting off illegal fireworks. (roman candle)

Bottle rockets.....

....and this is what the kids thought of them.

These kids (and I) sure love their daddy. Mike was able to be home with us all day on his B-day.

This was Landons first time holding a sparkler. He liked it, but kept saying that it was "spitting on me." This is such a classic Landon face!

Abbie and her friend Olivia at the fireworks later that night.

Landon and his friend Sage. I asked him once if Sage is his girlfriend and he said "No, Abbie is."
We really had such a good 4th this year. I was beyond happy that Mike didn't get called in, and we were able to have a lot of fun with friends and just being together with the kids. I love this country, and I love my family! Hope everyone else had a great 4th too!
