Ready For Summer!

I get so excited about summer when the weather starts getting nice and warm... I think of the beach, flip-flops, pedicures, relaxing by the pool, outdoor dining, green grass, margaritas, open sunroofs and can't wait for it to be here. Given Houston summers, I know by June, the excitement will have worn off and I'll be irritated that I sweat off my self tanner in a day. BUT for now, I am looking forward to all the fun things that we will do with the babies.

  5. Hi my name is Kim, I am really good friends with Jackie Bates. I know you don't know me and this is totally random but I just wanted to let you know that I click on your blog from time to time and really enjoy seeing how your five adorable little tots are growing... They are so cute and I applaud your super mommy skills! Take care!

  6. I guess many other people say that, but I can see how much they have grown. And they look more and more individual. I don't know, but I just guess they are forming more individual and as they're developing, they can show it, too.
    And of course they're CUTE, there's no doubt about it :))

  13. Hi, I came across your blog through a friend's blog last night...and before I knew it I had read every post! Oh goodness what a busy life you have! Congrats on your happy healthy little ones. They are all so perfect! I really really don't know how you do it....I only have 1 baby, she is 13months and I have the utmost respect for you. Judging from all your posts you are such a positive person with a happy outlook on life and deserve all the happiness that has come your way! I will pray for smooth sailing and calmness in your home as your little ones become more mobile. Thanks for sharing your story!! You are touching lives all over...even way over here in Seattle, WA :)

  17. I stumbled across your blog today and I have to say I'm hooked! Your children are so adorable. What an amazing time you did documenting your pregnancy, they will so appreciate that some day. I just had to say how cute your little ones are and how in awe I am. What a wonderful job you and your husband are doing. I can't wait for your next post (I'm sure you have tons of free time LOL) to see how they are doing. Really, they are so amazing....but you know that.

  19. Hi Ellen,

    I'm Missy, I came out to help feed the babies right around Christmas I think? I have wanted to come back so much but with 4 kids of my own, life has gotten in the way :(

    I do have a slew of baby boy clothes if you are in need. If so, please email me back and I can bring them by.

    Thanks!

  20. Ellen, Love the swimsuit pictures. They are getting so big. I barely recognize Sydney with all that hair. We're loving Alaska. The weather is finally great and the mountains are beautiful. Give them all a kiss for me and enjoy the summer.
