the fun never ends

we've been in our tiny little temporary house for 2 weeks now...and it's been fun times 2 (or 4) :) 
The first week we were all battling a cold, so we didn't do much, but this week has been a little more exciting and fun- we've kept ourselves a little busier and we've been enjoying a few of the perks to living in town. It's been a little harder to keep the kiddos entertained, though, in a small place, so, we've had to get a little creative...
 the twinnies have even had to get new jammies, because their room is a lot warmer than the basement. Surprisingly, though, they seem to be sleeping fairly well- even without their dark little basement cave. Naps aren't as good as they used to be, but bedtime doesn't seem to be as affected. 
I think out of everyone, Hailey has been enjoying the closer quarters more than anyone else. She's had a lot of fun playing with the babies and playing "matching" with them :) She's been a good little helper and a joy to have around. Nap time and rest time have been kinda difficult, since Hailey and Jack share a room and I have been missing my little amount of alone time that I get each day, but so far it hasn't been too bad. We've kept our peace- for the most part :) 
 some of the best parts of the house have been the m's getting cuter and cuter. Maysen's been giving lots of hugs to everyone, especially her little sister :) It's so cute. Maelle's not a huge fan of it, but she giggles through it, most of the time. Hailey and Jack, on the other hand, love it. Both of the girls have been starting to say a few more words, too. Their personalities get crazier and crazier as the days go by and we love to watch them learn new stuff, even if it's crazy and wild and gets them in a lot of trouble!! 
Our little temporary house has been fun. It's been adventurous. It's been a big test of my patience and love. Today the kids and I tried to make muffins and the kitchen is so small and there is so little counter space that we had oats and flour all over, a spilled cup of coffee, a drowned cell phone and ended our super fun time of muffin making with time outs for everyone- mommy included :) I think that the next few months will be a time of growing on mommy's part and a little bit of fun on the kiddos part. 


  1. Howdy! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do
    you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site
    looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.
    I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix
    this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.

    Many thanks!

  2. i've been reading all about your moving with much interest! we will be moving in june, and i keep wondering how the boys will handle it. we know where we're going and gus and gideon are both familiar with the house (there uncle lives there right now) but its very different from our house now, and there's going to be a lot of remodeling to do. any tips on moving with active kidos?! haha :)

    1. take any and all help offered :) It was horrible and chaotic trying to pack with all of them running around. I used a lot of videos to keep the older ones entertained and used treats to bribe them to play with the babies when I needed a few minutes to pack up stuff. We also sent them all away for 2 days and packed up their bedrooms when they weren't there- made it a lot easier to throw out the junk and other stuff they had accumulated that I wasn't gonna take with us :) I packed a lot when they were already in bed, too. I also got my neighbor's to watch them for most of the day when we moved, so they weren't in the way...the first few days were pretty hard on both of the older 2, because they didn't get why they weren't in their same house, anymore. But, I don't htink they miss it all, now. Good Luck! It'll be fun :) and remodeling with little ones is probably gonna be a whole new adventure :) sure is cute to see little boys following their daddy's around with tools, "helping" them, though :)
