    Baby Shower

    No Comments


    The 4 youngest kids and I got to go to a baby shower for Joel and Megan and Baby Karl!
    We ate yummy food.
    We visited with extended family.
    We delivered the group gift from all of the Robertson crew.
    And the kids provided the entertainment while I followed them around and tried to prevent messes.

    We had soup and bread for dinner – everyone brought something to share and Jamie hosted and it was great. We had our get together a little early this year because of Diego’s surgery but it was kind of fun doing it that early.

    After eating we jumped right into the cousin gift exchange. It was fun to watch the kids give and receive and to see all of the personalities. This year we had Carter, Sydney, Lily, Caitlin, Kiah, and Ellie – lots of older kids. Our kids got a Hoverball, Remote Control Car, Frozen Book, Frozen Purse, Go Go Car, and Little Critter – – so much fun. Adults got to exchange gifts as well and Ben and I got a new game: RoboRally!

    Christmas Concert

    No Comments

    The kids LOVED singing at school on Friday! Cali is a real performer. Pack was excited to learn all the words to the Grinch and Benji was embarrassed because they had to sing Santa Baby. and I was a very poor photographer with lots of babies hanging on my arms…

    Ben finally went and got his eyes checked this month. He now has glasses to help him see distance and he is loving the new vision.

    The 3 Munchkins…

    No Comments

    My 3 Munchkins:


    I get up at 7am and send Benji and Packer out the door at 7:45. Ben leaves for work. I walk Cali and Mia to School at 9:00. Then it is just me and the 3 littles. Sometimes we watch TV, sometimes we nap, sometimes we don’t finish breakfast until 10am and then eat lunch at 11am. Lots of times we don’t go anywhere cause it’s to much work. Sometimes we color or paint or draw. Sometimes we play trains or cars. Lots of times they run around while I try and get chores done. Then Cali comes home at 12:00 and the day goes on.

    I love these little Cuties:

    Baby Bennett

    We got to baby sit the other day. Millie loved having someone smaller than her around – so did everyone else… Having Cousin Bennett over was lots of fun:

    Millie can’t get enough of the wiggle bikes – so so cute.


    The other kids enjoy racing around too, especially with wet and cold weather outside.



    Benji discovered the Michael Vey series.


    Raymond mastering the train with Dad and Grandpa.


    Packer being goofy, like usual:)



    I hope he stays this sweet…

    SOME of us met up for our yearly “off to Cabela’s” picture… Pete, Matt, and Emily met us there. Families are getting bigger and busier…

    We stood in line to see Santa and all of the kids asked him for a few things that they really want this Christmas!

    We spent a few minutes at the shooting gallery and in this huge Moose Chair.
