Almost back to Normal!

We made it home on Tuesday and had all the kiddos back home by 7:00pm. It was so good to get hugs and kisses from the boys. But they were so sick. Kyle has been so pitiful this week. Today is the first day he has actually played and not been whiny. Caleb you would not even know he has Strep.
Yesterday I had to go run a few errands with ALL the kids. So I get everyone loaded up and we head out. We are on our way to the bank when Kyle coughs and then throws up in the car. Caleb out of reflux he throws up too. Lucky I was close to home so I just came on home and put them in the tub. Oh but before he left Caleb had a horrible diaper and when I laid him down to change him it went all over the carpet and up his back. It was a rough morning but we made it through the day and poor Kyle cried himself to sleep last night cause his ear was hurting. :(
Eventful days like yesterday make me a better mommy I do believe. I hate it when they are that pitiful and helpless.

Today is a much better day the boys are so much better and playing. Just hoping Kyle will eat today. I am sorry for all the graphics earlier but I just wanted to document the day. Hahaha like I will forget it.
Hope you all have a great day!

Heading Home!

So glad to be heading home to Alabama today!  Found out this morning that the boys woke up with fever and headaches.  So off to the Doctor my in laws went with the boys.  She just called and Caleb has Strep and Kyle has an ear infection.  So this trip has been good for us but not for my in laws.  I am glad the boys did get to go to the Zoo yesterday and have fun with Mawmaw and Pappy riding the tractor there and seeing all the animals! On the other hand the child that I was most worried about was Adeline and I talked to my mom this morning and she has been an Angel! 

Time has flown by while we have been here but today it is running slow. Hoping I can have some pictures posted here afterwhile from our trip!

Missing my Babies

We have had a great day but are so ready to see our kids.  We visited Universal Studios today and have laughed at how much we have screamed like kids riding the Mummy and the Rip Rock It. But it has been such a easy day.  It is amazing all the things we can do when we don't have to work around kids naps and them needing to potty and eat.  hahaha  In the past three days we have seen enough tattoos and butts we are not wanting to see anymore.  hahaha
Tomorrow we head back home.  So Alabama we are coming back around 4 watch out we are revived parents.  :)

Have a good night I am off to bed!

Orlando Anniversary Trip

We are having a good time here in Orlando. We arrived Saturday about 2:30 and took an expensive taxi ride to the hotel. We got unloaded and off to find something. We ended up going to a Titanic Dinner Experience here on International Blvd. I highly recommend for adults. The food was very good and the experience was so much fun. We were afraid we would miss our Trolley back but we didn't. Haha
Sunday we got up and went to church at Maingate Church of Chirst (inside Baymont Inn and Suites Celebration hotel) we had a wonderful service and actually met people from Lawrenceburg that my parents knew. Haha After church we headed to Universal Island of Adventure to see Harry Potter World. But we could not get into the Harry Potter World until 2:20 due to the amount of people. So we did a few other things in Jurassic Park and Poesiedion's journey. Then Off to Harry Potter we went. Had a awesome time riding the Forbidden Journey and the Dragons, walking Hogsmeade and eating at the Three Broomsticks. We had our Butter Beer which tasted like cream soda (for non Harry Potter Fans it is not real beer). We got back to our hotel and crashed!!
So Today is a new adventure will post later!!

A new day of....

Today is a new day of last minute errands and packing for our trip. It is so funny at how much stuff the kids need at this stage just to go to grandparents houses. Hahaha that or they are just rotten and will be even more rotten when they get back home. We will definitely have to DETOX the boys when they come home Tuesday night.

Caleb was helping me yesterday pack alittle bit and he said "where are you going?" I told him "you and Kyle are going to maw maw and Pappy's and Addie is going to Granmommy and Pops house me and daddy are going to go ride on an Airplane." he said "I go to mommy". He was so upset cause he was not going. :( so I promised a surprise and I better come back with one!! ;) I love my kids an will really miss them. They are at such a fun age and make me laugh when things make me sad. Children truly do put a smile one my face.

Well, I am now waiting for the boys to fall asleep so I can sneak out of their room and finish up laundry and eveything else I find to do. :)

1 MORE DAY!!!! oh I am so excited I won't be able to sleep tonight.

2 more DAYS

Andy and I set out for a 4 day Vacation/ Anniversary trip with no kids on Saturday. So today I have been finalizing hotels and trying to get transportation figured out without it costing us a fortune to get around Orlando. So I think we will use the trolley most of the time and I guess a taxi to get to church on Sunday. We will be visiting Universal Studios and Island of Adventure on this trip. We are really excited and so ready to go. Just hoping that we both feel better before we leave, we both have head colds. :(

I can already tell that I am really going to miss my kids but it will be good for us both to get away from everyday life and just have fun. Andy and I realized that we both have not been on a roller coaster in like 10 years so we will see just how sore I will be. Hahaha.

I still have lots of packing and laundry to finish up of course with 5 of us there is always laundry and cleaning around here.

Busy Busy Busy

We are constantly on the go it seems. Monday consisted of laundry then leaving to take stuff to Kids Market (a two week consignment sale), getting Adeline's medicine refilled which took an hour to do. My sweet mother in law came and watched all three kids for me.
Today has consisted of taking the boys to mother's day out, grocery shopping, delivering AVON and cleaning my house.
Andy and I are leaving on a 4 day trip to Orlando so packing will be my priorty the rest of the week. The boys are staying with Andy's parents and Adeline is staying with my parents so there is lots of packing to be done before Saturday. Packing for three different places will be a little challenging. Hahaha

Hoping the week slows down so that I can get everything done. I need the house to be show ready JUST IN CASE someone wants to look at it. This house selling business is getting old but we have got to get a bigger house.
I guess that is all for now I need to get back to cleaning and laundry. :)

Today is Andy's Birthday! So a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you ANDY. I love you.

We will be going to Cracker Barrel for breakfast which is also my other kitchen with maids (we eat there A LOT). This time we are going to celebrate mine, Andy's and my Brother-in-law David's birthday because the whole month of January we had sickness or snow everytime we planned to get together for David and mine.

Today will hold lots of possibilities from looking at a new car for Andy to looking at Campers. It Saturday so we may do both. Haha.
Hope you all have a good day that are reading this morning.

Keeping up with Life

Well today I started my first ever Blog. I wanted some way to document what our family was up to on a day to day basis and this was a way I could instead of always on Facebook. :)

So.... Welcome to the Journey in the Norris World! Hope you enjoy the Adventures we will be taking. I still don't have everything set up yet but give me time I do have three little ones.

We are headed to Chuckie Cheese tonight for Miss. Hannah Hastings birthday party. (Caleb says it is his party). Haha
