Families are like fudge... mostly sweet with a few nuts

On Saturday night we were invited to Corey's boss's house for a swim party. Corey forgot to tell me the swim part so we didn't bring any suits. The boys just swam in their shorts and Lexie just swam in her underwear. I know so white trash. Plus we didn't have any of their floaty stuff so I had to watch them extra careful. I was just in my regular clothes and I had the impression that I might have to jump in with my clothes on. That proved a good assessment because Gabe fell off the step and was barely above the water on his tip-toes. I was on the other side of the pool and the people standing over there were just staring at him. I ran over and had to save him. He was terrified and I saw that plainly in his little eyes. He clung to me for a little while, but all was good. I was sopping wet the rest of the party though. Good thing I didn't wear a white shirt. The kids had a blast though and the picture of Logan turned out awesome. Check out those eyes. The water really just brings them out. It was a great night to spend together as a family.
Logan is my little helper. He is willing to do anything that I ask him. He is so loving and mild mannered. He also can get his feelings hurt easily. And boy does he love his Grandma.
Gabe to put it mildly is WILD. He has always been moving and grooving since he was born. He is our stubborn child and is very aggresive. Always thinks he is the best at everything. He is the only one he even slightly resembles mom.
Lexie is our girly girl. She loves make-up and painting her fingernails. She has a mind of her own and thinks she can do what she wants when she wants. She is always the one who tests our authority as parents. But she loves her Dad and can wiggle out of just about anything.
What a sweetheart. Very quick to smile at anyone willing to make a fool out of themselves. She has become very attached to mom and I think mom really enjoys it. She requires A LOT of attention all the time. Mom really only gets a break while she is sleeping or being entertained by someone else. What a sweet addition to our growing family.
Our 5th and final miracle. Danni has already been such a joy to our family. Even with long nights and busy days she has blessed our lives. We are so excited to see what kind of person she will grow up to be.
