100th Post!

We were in Seattle last week to visit family and it was soo much fun!! We stayed at the in laws house and then half way though the week went to Carrie's (sis-in laws). My kids had soooo much fun seeing grandma and of course their cousins. All six of the cousins were there at the same time (3 boys 3 girls) These are some of the things we did;
Edmonds Beach
Swimming at the community pool
Bowling (the mom's got the same score as the kids....we weren't so good at the bowling thing)
Jetty Island (if you never been, I highly recommend it! WAY FUN!)
Watched Strictly Ballroom
Went to Mama Mia (LOVED IT, thanks Bets)
Chatted with the peeps
Thanks to everyone who helped me keep my kids in line when Aaron had to go home to work and I was busy with Landon. We had so much fun and we love you!!!

Doing the Happy Dance...

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Aaron/Dad/My honey, took the dreaded CPA exam the very day I went into labor with Landon (note: I went into labor 3 1/2 weeks early). Not only was it the very day Landon was born, but the very next hour AFTER he was born, he headed to take the test. Without much rest the night before (me waking him up every hour telling him my contractions were getting worse) and having a new child the hour before this huge test, naturally he was a bit distracted. He took the test anyway much to our dismay, and didn't think he did too well....

Well...we got the results yesterday and you will never believe.....

HE PASSED!!!!!! Honey we are soooooo proud of you!!!!! You are the smartest man ALIVE and you ROCK! Lets see someone else have a baby and pass the CPA on the same day!!!!! :0) We are just EXTATIC over here!! 1 down 3 to go!

I couldn't think of a good title, so "Stuff" will have to do. We have not been up to too much lately. I SERIOUSLY dread going anywhere with 3 kids. Yesterday I went to Safeway with the "bunch" and Syd and Wes almost didn't come out of the store alive, not to mention Landon was starving, so he was screaming!! YIKES!!

I have also been reading Breaking Dawn for like 3 days straight (finished on Tuesday) and let my poor kids fend for themselves. Well, not really but I didn't cook or clean or do much else other than read. I liked the book a lot, but am glad it's done so I can have my life back. So the book was addicting, fast moving, shocking. There was a different surprise around every corner, but it also was a little long. I recommend it though if you haven't read it! That is about it. We have been going to Dr appointments etc, and just doing the norm. Next weekend, we are off to Seattle....that will be a nice little trip to see fam!!!! Can't wait!
