You Are An ENFP



The Inspirer



You love being around people, and you are deeply committed to your friends.

You are also unconventional, irreverent, and unimpressed by authority and rules.

Incredibly perceptive, you can usually sense if someone has hidden motives.

You use lots of colorful language and expressions. You're quite the storyteller!



In love, you are quite the charmer. And you are definitely willing to risk your heart.

You often don't follow through with your flirting or professed feelings. And you do break a lot of hearts.



At work, you are driven but not a workaholic. You just always seem to enjoy what you do.

You would make an excellent entrepreneur, politician, or journalist.



How you see yourself: compassionate, unselfish, and understanding



When other people don't get you, they see you as: gushy, emotional, and unfocused

Thanks Crystal!

Reasons why we love Crystal. 1. She makes the best chocolate milk
2. She loves to play with the girls
3. She did my dishes when I didnt have time



We got to have Crystal come and stay this weekend while Jeffs mom was out of town. She was such a big help she took care of the kids for me so I could get the girls room done. (see post below) She also helped Jeff with the kids so I could go out with my friends. And she helped get the house put back together after the busy busy weekend. So Thanks so much Crystal! We love you!

Girls night out.


Between the four of us we have 11 kids so understandable we all needed a break. On Saturday we got gussied up and went to Iggys and had appetizers. Then we headed to Applebees for mini desert and then to Pizza Factory for real desert. It was loads of fun and I think we are going to try and do it again soon.

It still fits!.......Sort of



My friends and I decided it would be fun to try on our old prom dresses today which inevitably led to wedding dresses. So tonight after I put the kids to bed I decided to see if mine still fit.And as you can see from the pictures 3 kids later it still fits........as long as I dont have to breath:) But it did get zipped and I will admit I am still wearing it as I write this! I just couldnt help myself.

Sunday afternoon






We were just messing around after church yesterday taking some fun pictures. The girls wanted to all dress like Hawaii so we all had our luau garb on. I know the last few pics are blurry but I was taking them myself and I get a little distracted when Jeff is so close. I love his expression in the last picture.

Woops


In case you cant tell what this is a picture of, that is Ryan on the left side of the picture......between the bed and the wall. We were all

playing on the bed and all of the sudden we couldnt find Ryan. I know I should have just rescued him but he wasnt crying so I thought I would take a quick picture cause it was so funny.

So true!




Your 1996 Theme Song Is: Macarena by Los Del Rio



When I dance they call me macarena

And the boys, they say that I'm buena

They all want me, they can't have me

So they all come and dance beside me

Saturday



This is how we spent our Saturday as well as probably every other Saturday this summer. Ryan loved being outside under the tree in his bouncy toy and the girls just played and played and played.

YES!!!




One week a swimsuit and a $480 slide and Jessie is potty trained! She is going on her own and I dont even have to remind her. All it took was a HUGE bribe but I think it was completly worth it! I knew she was all potty trained today when I told her to go get a pull up for nap time and she ran into the potty and did a #2!!! I thought that was going to take us a few months to get down. I am sure there are still a few accidents in our future but I definately willnot be buying anymore diapers for Jessie. Way to go girl we are so proud of you!

Party



I decided it was time for a girls night in so I threw a Mary Kay party for my friends. It was a very fun and crazy time. Cassie really enjoyed it but I dont think Jessie got the concept of less is more.

A new toy for Ryan


Ryan likes sitting up so he can watch the girls so we got him a bouncy chair so he could watch them run around. He seems to really like it and it is really portable. It folds up so I can move it from room to room.

A good day

Well it is almost 9 PM. The kids are all sleeping and I will be in bed in about 20 minutes. The house is a mess but Jessie went pee pee on the toilet 3 times today and once in an aisle at Walmart. And I made a most yummy dinner but it took a little while to prepare. Flawless Sesame Chicken wwww.recipezaar.com/129598 I know the girls will remember a yummy dinner way better then a clean house years from now. I think today was a good day.

Major Development!

While I was putting Ryan down for a nap I told Jessie to run in and go potty.......and she did!! It is a small step but a really big deal. This was about the 15th time she had sat on the potty this morning so for her to actually put something in it was HUGE!

Look at Ryan

This is what Ryan has been practicing the last few weeks. I think I might have a crawler by the end of the month! UGH!
