Missed March Madness so we are going for April!

It may be 12:25 am but I am going to blog anyway. Life has been pretty tough lately. Having the large family that we do, sickness is usually 3 or 4x as bad as with smaller families. The throwing up is almost more than I can stand at times. I am so grateful for older children that even pitch in with emptying bowls, staying up all hours with other little kids when mom and dad are exhausted. I have some cooking, others bathing children, and everyone helping out with chores. I don't know what I would do with out my wonderful children. We are now on our 3 round of the flu. Mylee has a very high fever and is still throwing up on day 3. She got a blessing today so all will be well very soon. It's very hard to watch a tiny one be so sick. I sure love that Heavenly Father sends blessing to us in our time of need.
We had sad new in the family. Kristine, Michael's wife's mother died a few day ago. Her and Michael flew out to Oregon for the family and should be back Sunday or Monday. I went out to their house to check on the kids and they were doing wonderful. The house was clean the kids were fed and we got to just kick back, eat rice crispy treats and watch "Twilight". I really like Sci-fi movies and this one was really fun to pick apart. Conference was so good! I loved every bit of it! It was a really good pick-me-up for these last days that seem so full of hardship and tribulations. Life is good. Hope all is well with everyone. We would love to hear from all of you.

Oh Where or Where have the Robinsons Gone?

Wow, too many crazy things have been put into such a small amount of time. Computer viruses, moving, computer crashing, laptop charger cord breaking, camera smashed, new camera broken. None of the children or hurt or gone or anything so I guess life is not that bad for Rick and I. School has been a challenge more than usual just because a lot of their school in on the computer. But I think that is fixed for a while anyway. I hope all has been well with you. I will start writing more. Have a great one. OH ,

I can't believe How Scatter Brained I can be!

Okay, so I am really happy that I figured out how to blog and put on pictures and we happen to just have a camera that works and the stuff to put the pics on the computer. Yah for me! But something had to go and ruin it all.

Rick and I and kids went to Nauvoo to help and see Grandpa Robinson get sealed to his parents in the temple. We were headed to see the sites on Sunday. I asked Rick to take out the diaper bag to the van (15 passenger hunk of a vehicle). For some reason he set it on the ground by the van. Our van was almost blocked in by another 15 pass van so Rick did some mighty fine maneuvering to get out of this drive way. He maneuvered right over the diaper bag and over the camera. So sad.

Then Rick surprised me with a new one for part of a late birthday/anniversary gift. It is better, prettier and just does more cool things. Even has a Charger so I don't have to keep buying batteries.

Make a long story not as long, I lost the charger somewhere. It is going to drive me crazy! I know I put it somewhere with Rick's phone charger so they " wouldn't get lost". AHHHHHH!!! So I decided to just start writing instead of only pictures. Turn it into a journal type thing along with a scrap book. I guess that is one way to start writing in a journal. So now with this blog we are going to get up close and personal at times!!! Hope to hear from all of you soon.

Park Day with Grandma Robinson and Kara

Aunt Kara was in charge of taming the tree monkeys.

Grandma said, "I'll give you three chances and if you don't behave.....".

We had to play patty-cake about 6 times in a row to get her to be happy.

Grandma lets the love shine through for her grandkids. Love you Grandma.

Kara is the best Aunt ever with the kids. She loves them, plays with them, and always tries to help to keep them happy in any way she can. We love you so much Aunt Kara.

Thanks Grandma and Kara for sharing our park day with us!

Teancum Is 7 !

This could be , perhaps, the sweetest kid ever. He turns 7 on October 25. Teancum is a very Happy-Go-Lucky kid. Not much phases him unless he is being teased. He helps everyone and anyone. He doesn't keep score with anyone and will usually forgive almost instantly. When he gets baptized next year , I think he won't have much to repent of ha ha. Good kid. Loves everyone. The best thing of all, he tells me I am the best mom in the whole universe. Isn't that all that really matters? I say...... Yes!
