|WE ARE SEVEN!!!|
|7 years ago today I evicted these 3, hahaha!|
|This morning : )|
|Pretty much the start and end of every picture taking session, sigh!|
|The boys with their beloved mama Elda. The boys spent a full 3 weeks with her this summer (Phil & I joined them the last week of their stay). They loved it and didn't seem to miss us too much, ha!|
|In Santa Cruz|
|With cousin Natalie|
|We tried to do a little photo shoot but the kids weren't having it and the lighting was bad. |
But we still got a few good ones : )
|Looking at those crazy boys|
|In Davis we recruited cousin Korina to take family pictures of us.|
|The boys love their tia Janet|
|This photo shoot was like pulling teeth. It was over 90 degrees which for the boys this photo shoot might as well have been in the middle of a volcano! They were so hot and complained every chance they got so I'm surprised we got any decent pics of them, ha!|
|We tried, ha!|
|Out to dinner with mama Sue and papa Ed on our last day in Davis!|
|CTE, first day!|
|On our way to school! |
We walk or bike to school everyday, it's only half a mile from our house.
I love that we live so close and don't have to deal with cars, carseats, and parking to get to school.
|The teacher said she did not have a chance to move Caleb's name tag to another table. I was worried they would misbehave being together. They were fine of course and two days later Caleb was moved to another table were ironically he got into a scuffle with the boy he was put next to. I guess they were sword fighting with their pencils and they ended up stabbing each other. No one fessed up as to who started it first. Eli said he saw that the other boy started it. I want to believe him but maybe he's just standing in solidarity with his brother, ha!|
|Let start learning!|
|Multiples Illuminated the sequel!|
Read my review to the first book, click here.
|CET are 6 years and 11 months old!|
|Looking for snakes bc last time one scared us here!|
|Even the California sea lions are moving to Oregon, ha!|
|Riding the trolley with C.|
|When my kid tells me he can't find something.|
|When my kid asks me to snuggle : )|
|Pretty much sums up life with triplet boys, ha!|
|The start of the fun!|
|The pile is taller than my child!|
|Unhelpful kitty buried in the undies pile : )|
|With socks as cute as those how could you not love doing laundry!|
|An example of how my kids leave their clothes, |
probably my grease monkey Caleb wore this one, ha!
|My stain remover of choice. |
I recommend spraying and letting the clothes sit for 10min-2 hours before washing.
For stubborn stains I'd leave over night but not more than that because it might leave holes in your clothes (I've learned the hard way).
|On the left you can see that after spraying and washing some haze of the stain is still there. My tougher stain remover method is using a drop of blue Dawn and spraying with more oxyclean. Then scrub with an old toothbrush. Let sit a couple hours to overnight then wash again.|
This method has gotten 99% of stains out that I've dealt with. The only thing that I still have trouble with is pen marks, please share your secrets if you know how to get those out (and don't tell me rubbing alcohol cause that hasn't work that well for me although it has faded the mark but not completely erased it). And dear friends and family, if you are reading this please don't give my children pens to play with! Pens are my worst enemy!!!
|It'g gotta be original blue Dawn, nothing else! |
This stuff is strong, they use it on birds after oil spills!
|Ta Da! Stain free! |
The best feeling ever for an OCD laundry obsessed mama!!
|The Oregon coast is so breathtaking.|
|Eli made a cute little kite at camp, I was surprised it actually flew!|
|E was snackin'|
|We had to dig a pretty big hole! |
Good thing we had help from our friends : )
|Identical triplets buried alive!|
