Here are some pictures of Alicia and her class at there Class play "The Cheetah And The Sloth". They also acted out some commercials in between the play. Alicia was in one of them. She did so good she even remember her lines.

Today at School Elizabeth will get recognized for her Academic Achievement, during Lunch time she will have a Pizza Lunch with the Principal. She has no idea it is a total surprise. I am so proud of her. She has worked so hard this School year.

The girls Birthday is just around the corner, they want to have it at the Skating Rink, they are so excited to have there friends come and skate with them. I cannot believe they are going to be nine. Time has flown by so fast I remember like it was yesterday when they were born.

Logan is doing awesome. Nora and Michelle came over yesterday for Therapy. They are trying to get him to climb up the stairs and Logan thinks it is the funniest thing when it is time to turn around to go down he will slide his but down the stairs one at a time and just laugh hysterically. I swear Logan was laughing all during Therapy yesterday I think he loves Nora she has never seen him so happy...

I thought I would post something quick, I am eating a lunchable right now because I am about to head out the door again. Logan had Therapy today he is doing good in Speech he is saying small words but spacing them out when he says them. He will say out "ou t". At least he is saying the word he will eventually put it all together.
In O.T. he was very cranky throwing toys and not listening. Of course he was up at 4am this morning talking to himself then started to cry because I was ignoring him and not coming to get him. He has been waking up this early a lot lately and I have no idea why. I have him on a Schedule every day and we stick to it minus a few missed naps during the day because we just don't have the time.
When Logan gets done eating we are going over to the girls School Alicia has another play today. I could not get any pictures from the play last week there were to many people and they were not in site. Today is just Alicia's class doing a play she is so excited.

Everyone is doing great around here we are having a big Bar B Que get together at our house on Saturday our neighbors and Friends from Richard's work are coming we expect a big turn out, so if you are in the area come on by we would love to have you.

I have been really busy with the kids and school stuff. Wednesday night the girls are both in a School Play called The Cheetah And The Sloth. I will try and get some good pictures. They also have another School play next week.
So they have been going to a lot of Dress Rehearsals, and I have been one busy Mom.
Logan had Speech and O.T. today he did very good, he has been going in the room by himself for the past few weeks and no crying. I think we have reached a mile stone here.

After Sacrament Sunday at Church I decided to take Logan to the Nursery to see how he would do. I stayed there for about 15 minuets and then I left to go to my class. He did great for about 45 minutes then he started to cry so I went in there and stayed the rest of the time. It was around 1pm and he started to throw a tantrum and it was also nap time that is probably why he started to cry. But the time he was in there was for a good period I was so happy he did so well for being his first time in there.

Alicia had a Doctor's Appt. today we are trying to find the right meds for her for her A.D.D. This will be our third time trying a different medication. He put her on Concerta so we will see what happens.

Here is a cute video of Logan laughing when the girls were rolling a slinky down the stairs. This was last week.

Sorry Mom and Dad I have not posted in a few days, I have been so busy with running around doing errands taking Logan to Therapy and trying to get the car fixed. Making sure the kids have what they need for School this week.
I went to Walmart to do some Grocery shopping on Saturday and while I was there I decided to get my Oil changed, well ever since then it has been leaking oil so this morning I took it in and they said the dish pan had oil in it and it was never cleaned. So this is why it is leaking so they cleaned the pan and supposedly this is the problem. I will have to keep an eye out and see if it worked.
Tomorrow Alicia has an Eye Doctors appt. She has been saying it is hard to see the Chalkboard.
Logan has O.T. in the morning, he normally has it on Tuesday's but the O.T. had to reschedule.
Friday I have a Doctors appointment it has been a year since my last Physical so I am going to have an E.K.G. some blood work done and some other tests.

I asked Richard to take the weekend off so we could spend some quality time together just me and him, We really need it. It has been awhile since we have done something by ourselves. I have been really stressed out lately with the kids and everything so I am really looking forward to it. My Mom is going to watch the kids for us. We are going to the movies to go see Iron Man and just do what ever afterwards.

I better get going Logan just woke up from his nap and it is time to eat. Thanks for checking in on us.

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Mom's out there.

These past few days have just been crazy, I can't even remember what I did. So I will tell you what I did this weekend. Saturday I had Logan's Respite Nurse over to watch all the kids while I went out and did a lot of running around. Richard worked this weekend but was able to make it home this morning. His knees have been bothering him and Elizabeth was not feeling well this morning so Alicia and I went to Church. They had a wonderful Sacrament where the primary sang, Alicia did such a great job. Then after Sacrament all of the women received a small bag of cookies. It was very nice. I came home and took an hour nap and we all just got back from going out to dinner. Richard came home with beautiful roses for me. It was so sweet. I love him dearly.
This week is another busy week with appointments. Hope everyone has a great week.

Yesterday Logan had Speech and Occupational Therapy in the Community. For the first time ever Logan went to both sessions all by him self while I waited in the waiting area, I was so excited he never cried and only asked for me twice. This is so huge we are moving in the right direction. I am trying to prepare him for Preschool when he starts in August. We will try this again next Tuesday and see how things go.

After School the girls had Church Activity and they were there for 2 hours and made crafts for Mothers Day, they made me a card it was so sweet. At School Alicia made a fake flower arrangement for me. Elizabeth will bring home her Mothers Day gift later in the week.

This morning Logan's D.S. from N.E.I.S. is coming over to work with him, we are going to show her how Logan can Crawl....

Everyone is doing pretty good around here, I am not sure if Logan is coming down with a cold or it's allergy's but he has a runny nose and is congested.

The girls have a Birthday Party to go to Saturday afternoon and I will have Logan's Respite Nurse over Saturday morning so she can watch the kids I have a ton of errands to do.

Thanks for checking in on our family.

What a weekend this has been so far. The girls had a friend sleep over last night and they did not fall asleep until 12:30 am and Logan decided to wake me up at 5:30am this morning so I am exhausted and my day has just begun...

Friday my Mom came over and we went shopping all day, I had alot of errands to do and mom came along for the ride. We got home after being gone all day so before I put him in his chair to eat I let him play on the floor and all of a sudden he gets on his knees and starts to crawl. He has been getting on his hands and knees in a crawling position alot these past few months but he just rocks back and forth and does not move forward, well Friday was the day he decided to try it out, I was able to get in on video. He sort of is crawling anyway.

Friday while I was out shopping I went to Toys R Us and picked up Logan a Little Tikes Table and Chair set with some wood blocks, When I got home and took everything out of the box and put him in his chair his face just lit up of excitement it was so priceless it was worth every penny of course being the Coupon Queen that I am after sales and coupons I only paid $26.00 and it was regularly $50.00, I was so proud of myself I did so good :)
Logan just loves to stack things and he his pretty good at. Now I can help him stand up and play at the table at the same time, make him work without him even knowing it :)
Oh and Logan has stopped calling me Mama and now calls me Mommy, it just melts my heart every time he says it.

Saturday the girls had there big day and they were Baptised and today they are being confirmed a member in Church today in Sacrament. The girls were so excited they received several gifts from friends and family. Tonight we are all going out to dinner to Olive Garden to celebrate.

Other than that it has pretty much been crazy around here.
