Life with 3 kids is hard, real hard actually. Courtney is doing a fantastic job at juggling 3 little ones as well as a needy husband.

You're the best Courtney!!

Pedicure Place

Hannah has always loved getting money and filling her piggy bank. She asked me how to get more money and is learning the concept of work. She asked Grandma Brown if she could do work for her too.
This morning Hannah decided to start her own business, PEDICURE PLACE. Kevin asked her what makes her pedicures special and why should people go to her when there is so many other places they could go. Hannah decided she would give the "goodest" massages and make cookies for everyone.
She made signs... I just love them!
She has all the colors you could ever want, 30 different shades of pink!
Gavin provides the music
Hannah is open and waiting for customers. She shouts at the top of her lungs for all the neighbors to hear that she is open. She gave me a manicure and Gavin rubbed my back and shoulders, it was actually pretty good.

My Mom is 50!

My mom turned 50 this past Friday, or as she likes to say, "I'm 25 with 25 years experience." She just couldn't bring herself to say the "f" word... "FIFTY!"
I drove up Thursday night to my parent's house. She didn't know I was coming so when I walked in the door she was estatic! It felt good to give her the best present for her birthday, her most favorite thing in the world... a baby.
Someone "bra-ed" her house. Bras everywhere.

We went to her favorite restaurant for dinner with some of her best friends.
Luke loved watching the onion volcano.
On the way home I asked my mom if she had a good birthday. She said that it was a pretty good one, she was happy. Little did she know that when she got home...
Actually, to everyone's surprise, my Dad threw her a surprise birthday party!
She was so shocked, she had no idea. All the kids contributed to buy her a ticket to see Wicked, my Dad has to buy his own ticket, take her, and pay for their hotel. My poor Dad.
My Mom and all her girls...

-Happy 50th Birthday!

Luke's Blessing

Luke was blessed today. It was a wonderful event and so many family members were able to make it. It was a great day to reflect on all the wonderful blessing in our lives. Having this little baby is wonderful.*I can't believe how many kids I have!

Four Generations! Grandma Brown, Joyce, Kevin, and Luke
Marilyn is like another Grandma to Hannah, Gavin, and now Luke.

Grandpa Brown holding Luke... they share the same middle name!
I'm so grateful for my in-laws who helped so much! They are the BEST!

Our family friends came, the kids love playing with each other. I thought this was too cute to not blog it.
