If you haven't noticed from my lack of posting it has been a really busy couple of weeks in the Skellenger home. We have been getting ready for school to start. Austin started her first week of Charter yesterday as is so far enjoying herself. She started her first day of college last week and is doing good so far. Sommer got her acceptance letter to attend River City Middle School this week and she gets her schedule and locker combo tomorrow. She is really excited to start this new adventure. I hope she really enjoys her new school and new surroundings.

My Dad stopped by on Saturday and took my son with him camping (pictures to come) he looked like he had so much fun. His uncle was a little worried because he is pretty notorious for being the wild one but I guess he behaved himself pretty well. I have to say though that it was pretty hard to have him so far away with no cell service to check up on him I missed him more than I thought.

We have a curtain right by our port-a-crib downstairs before today no one has noticed it being there. When I walked back into the room from doing the dishes I found Lucy curled up in my curtain asleep she was so cute I just had to take a picture.

This is a picture of the kids watching their favorite show "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" The theme song gets their attention and quiets them down so quickly that we end up rewinding it to listen to the song a couple times while I get bottles or breakfast ready... It helps keep the peace, Thank you Mickey Mouse!

I just finished a bag of cheetos and the kids thought that it looked pretty interesting they were fighting over it for 10 minutes, it just kept going around the circle.

So Lindsey came over and showed me how to use my Light Shop program so I have been paying with some of the functions on it. This is one of my first ones that I worked on and I love it. I love how her eyes look!

P365 (August 22, 2010)Daven figured out that he can look over the side of the port-a-crib now I think it is just about time to lower it so that he can't Houdini out of it.

Lucy looking cute!

This is actually a picture Lindsey took of Rose but I loved it and wanted to post it for today.

P365 (August 19, 2010)Daven does not like to be cradled to sleep anymore but likes to be with you, so he usually ends up falling asleep in the weirdest positions. In this picture he is sleeping upright on my lap, he is so funny!

Happy Sweet Sixteen

Well, Austin is officially sixteen now. We had a big party this weekend. and get this she wanted to go camping for her birthday... How funny. She had a lot of fun though. We had about 5 girls stay the night with us (they all slept out in a tent). I guess they all had a good time 2 of them stayed longer than they originally anticipated. We all did have a good time but man is that a lot of work... cooking and cleaning for that many people! I am still pretty tired from the whole weekend I think I am finally not so tired.The babies had their six month check up too. Everyone is doing really well the doctor is pleased with how everyone is doing. The weight and measurements were:
Lucy wt: 17.6 ht: 26in
Daven wt: 15.13 ht: 25.5in
Rosalee wt: 15.8 ht: 25in

I cannot believe how big they are getting, and Lucy oh my goodness she has always been the bigger one of the three but I never anticipated nearly 2 pounds over the other two. They have been so much fun to watch this week. The girls are so close to crawling. They both get up on their hands and knees and rock back and forth. Lucy does a "combat crawl" to get where she wants if its close, if its and little farther away she will roll to get there. Daven likes to stand up whenever he can.

Daven was helping us put up Austin's tent, I noticed that he was running his fingers through the dirt, which was cute the next time I looked at him he had dirt all over his mouth... I couldn't help but laugh and take a picture.

Nana and Papa holding Lucy and Rosalee while Austin opens gifts on Saturday.

P365 (August 15, 2010)The last day of camp the kids playing in their toys by the fire.

P365 (August 16, 2010)Rosalee was tired of eating by spoon so I put a pile of it on her tray and she enjoyed eating it that way much more... I wonder why :)

P365 (August 17, 2010)This was taken today by Sommer while I was taking a nap, she had all the kids playing on the floor she must have done something funny because Lucy is laughing pretty hard.

My Tiny Boxs

I remember my Mom always saying when we were kids "I am going to put you in a little box so you never get any bigger" I always laughed at her when she said that and thought she was funny. Now I understand the reality of it! My kids are getting so big. They hold their own bottles, sit on their own (well Lucy is working on that), eat baby food... Oh how I wish I would have taken my mom's advise and put them in a little box to keep them small. :)

Rosalee went shopping with Grandma Nancy, Sommer, and I on Sunday. while we were shopping at Kohls Rose sat in the cart but she refused to put her legs through the holes... She was so stinking cute I just had to snap a picture.
