Why Have A Big Family???

Why Have A Big Family??? Cause you always have a BIG CHEERING CROWD:Yes.....there are many perks to having a large family...but one of my favorites is having ALL the "other" kids watching and cheering for "the one" that is in the spot light for that moment!! I really LOVE watching my kids play sports....even though most of the time I'm still chasing down the two "littles" at every practice and game and rarely get to see much of it!!! might be thinking (not)..."What was Kristi wearing at her last baseball game for her son??" Well...since I just know you were thinkin it...let me show ya?? :)
Yes... just came out with ANOTHER fabulous tshirt!!! I literally ran by Gwen's house (she lives about a mile from awesome) and she had my new tshirt waiting for me (gotta love your girlfriends :) !!! I am sporting it ...Oh, and here's the BACK OF IT TOO:

So cute.... and you all can get one too by visiting more on the game:

**I so LOVE that my boy LOVES his baby sister so much that he WANTS her in the dug out with sweet: big girls enjoy swapping "silly bands" during the game which distracts ALL the players...not sure the coach appreciated this too much:

And...just when you are thinking "man...those kids are too cute"....Let me get REAL with ya and show ya WHAT ALSO happens on a daily basis.....LOTS OF SCREAMING from my two littles:
As you can see ABOVE...I caught LL in action!!! She LOVES to torture George and steal his favorite cars he's holding....Above I just happened to snap the picture just as she pulled one of her famous tricks of GRABBING the car out of his hand and turning to RUN....AND...he SCREAMS at the top of his 3 yr. old lungs!!! Yes....this is ALWAYS part of my EVERY day too....So...don't ever think for a moment that we're just all cute and all smiles all the time!! :) KNOW that my home is FILLED with LOTS of crying, fussing, and SCREAMING from my 5, 3 and 1 yr. old MOST of the time....PRAISING God that my 6 and 8 yr. old girls are MELLOW!! :) Oh, they can have their moments too....but they can't ever compare to the bottom 3!!! :) And, I wouldn't change a thing about ANY one of them!!! :)
Happy Monday to you all, kj

  5. yay for large, familial cheering sections! i used to call emma and jack "the littles", but now i have to call them "the middles". i guess lulu definitely needs a pal so i can have "the middles" AND "the littles".
