Is there anything cuter than this? I submit that there is not!

We moved into the new house. And I really LOVE this house. I know I have my work cut out for me. It needs a little work - just cosmetic - but I'm real excited about doing all of that. At first we had issues with the kids completely adjusting but I think they really like their new house too and their new school. So needless to say I still have a bazillion boxes everywhere to sort through so I will only post outside photos for now.
Side view of driveway - carport curves to the right and the small building is a workshop (500-600 sq ft) which we hope to someday convert to a little apartment
Back yard has an adorable playhouse for the kids which by the way has electricity and air conditioning.

Birthday waffles - wish I could say that they were lovingly homemade. I did however think loving thoughts as I warmed them in the toaster
One of the gifts Grandma Mikey sent. Can you tell Jack enjoys having his picture taken
This of course was not at the top of my list of favorite places but hey you only turn 6 once and the kids seemed to really enjoy themselves
Back home for cake and icecream - Good Times
Our family certainly would not be the same without this little boy. He has brought much joy and entertainment . And who could resist those beautiful blue eyes!

They also threw candy and I'm pretty sure we have enough that we won't need to buy any for Halloween
Featuring the ULL Band but even more entertaining were the floats with the Sorority's and Fraternity's. They had music blasting and the floats were bouncing and apparently the music we listened to in Jr High and High School is making a comeback. Maybe its just because they are classics.
Here we are loaded down with beads and Jack holding the flag that the cheerleaders threw to him
Can you tell what Payton's favorite catch was
The kids with the loot
OK yes I am a dental hygienist and yes that is my almost one year old with a sucker in his mouth -- it made him really happy (and quiet)

Payton: Can I have a drink of your soda
Me: Because I'm being selfish
Payton: I thought you were allergic to shellfish
Me: I'm being selfish not shellfish - it means I don't want to share
A few minutes later I was presented with a picture that Jack drew with "No (a picture of a fish)" and a frowny face which Jack informed me was him

After work - off to teach class. I think I somehow managed to convince myself that if I exercised it wouldn't matter how much food I consumed. Which for some reason taking the day off of my diet for my birthday has progressively turned into a week long event
So I ate and I ate like I was never going to see food again even though I knew that cake and Rocky Road Icecream were waiting for me at home.
When we got home the boys could hardly contain themselves they were sure that the next gift would make a blog entry for sure.
Yes my friends --- a Snuggie ( not to be confused with the Slanket)
I laughed so hard when I opened this and I loved the fact that my kids knew it would make me laugh and of course blog about it.
So now I can enjoy the comforting warmth of a blanket and still be able to find my hands..... Check out all the things I can do with my Snuggie
I can use a remote control and still be nice and warm
I can hold my beautiful baby
And it's so nice and big that I can cover all of my children at once
Not pictured: I can eat a snack, I can read a book, I can talk on the phone, I can read a newspaper and so many many more ...........
So thank you all for the Birthday Wishes!!

Yes it makes me a little nervous to know that we had 11 people in a 8 passenger car but we somehow survived and still liked eachother after.
One of the "hot" spots to visit is Avery Island - home of the Tabasco hot sauce factory. Here you learn all about the history of how Tabasco came to be. "Tabasco" means "Land of the hot and humid" and the kids all agreed (thanks to Nathan bringing to our attention) that Louisiana should really be called Tabasco.
We also went on a swamp tour: Ryan and our tour guide
Just a few things seen on the tour.........
Our next stop was Red Stick or better known as Baton Rouge. We drove over to Baton Rouge so our visitors could go on the longest bridge and say they crossed the Mississippi. If I didn't know how to spell Mississippi before the trip I do now. Listening to 6 children repeat over and over M-i-s-s-i-s-s-i-p-p-i over and over was the highlight of the drive.
We are so glad that Amy and the kids and Mikey came to visit. Hopefully more people will feel the urge to make a road trip too!!!
