It's not that I don't have anything interesting to say. I just that I don't have time to say it. So here's to a new hobby, which I undoubtedly have no time to pursue. . .
Here's a rundown. . .
5 kids- Cadence 12, Zack 11, Carlie 9, Cooper 7, Stockton 6
We live in Woods Cross in a great house in a great neighborhood
Our kids are learning to speak French
We do sports
We do dance
We do princesses and Super heroes
I do Magical Celebrations
JJ does Transamerica
We do up and down
But we manage to get back to middle ground- most of the time.
So what does life look like for us?

The first Saturday of summer break couldn't be more perfect. Waffles for breakfast, the morning spent at the pool, and the rest of the day spent outside doing yard work while the kids are running around with all the cute neighbors. I love this weather, I love this neighborhood, and I love my family! This is what it's all about.
Right now I'm taking a break with my sweet Stockton who seems to be okay with me catching up on this lifeless blog. Have you met Stockton? If not, you should. He is four months old and such a sweetie. He looks like his brother Zack if you ask me, just a whole lot skinnier. He's the first of the skinny kind of babies we've had. But what this by lacks in weight, he more than makes up for in length. He has blue eyes that are undoubtedly a gift from the Hansen side of the family. His hair has still got us guessing, but I think he will be blonde, at least for a while. He is such a snugly and sweet boy. I love that when I come over to pick him up he looks like I just made his day. Then I hold him and he lays his head on my shoulder, I think just to tell me he loves me. He is the perfect baby to have in the fifth slot. He is very patient when I can't get to him right away. And his cry is almost as cute as his laugh! He has the cutest little whimper. And the laugh. He really gets going sometimes, especially when the kids talk to him.
Nine months is a long time to wonder about all the details of a new baby. The hair, the eyes, skin tone, personality. Then they get here and they are who they are, which is exactly who they are supposed to be. Is that vague?

I am behind and I better fix that or all the fun things we've been doing will be lost with the introduction of our new little star! So I'm off. . .

I sometimes get a little teary-eyed when I see an ad where the kids are looking and smiling and not pulling weird faces. I know that to ever get a picture like that, it would take hundreds and hundreds of photos and hundreds and hundreds of hours of editing, although I'm pretty sure the most skilled of photo editors would agree that working with my turkeys would be a lost cause. (Even though I do think they are pretty cute.)

This was a little petting zoo that consisted of two goats, a giant rabbit, a chicken and a duck.
The goats were cute,
And so was the giant rabbit.
But the feathered friends took flight while these guys were in the petting zoo. Watching them chase a duck around a little classroom was probably the best part.
Never mind, I forgot about the cotton candy.
Me in all my fluffiness.
Cotton candy does gross things to little kids.
