I have great news My brother-in-law (Steve) and I have opened a photography business. you can see our work if you go to http://www.coffeehousephotography.com/ the site isn't all the way up but you can see the rough draft. don't try using the bar across this page it wont work you need to click on the website. We will work from Seattle to Portland. After taking the pictures on the calendar and exploring photography I have found a new love. Steve has been in the industry for sometime, he is a amazing photographer. With Molly having cancer and me having 6 kids we could always use the money. Also it is a great way for me to get out of the house and still do something for my family. Please pray for us as we start a new adventure.

This has been a hard week!! Wednesday Weston fell off the table and his front tooth fell out. I had just fed them all dinner and was washing the floor, when I saw him falling out of the corner of my eye. I looked over and he was on the floor screaming and blood was everywhere. I was terrified at first I couldn't tell where it was coming from and then I saw his beautiful little tooth on the ground. I couldn't believe it was the root and all. It is really hard being alone so much. Mike is always working on the house and the kids seem to be getting good at climbing and opening things. I called my mom that night crying. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed and when things like this happens it makes me feel like I am failing. I cannot turn my back for one second what one cannot figure out the other will. The dentist said he will be fine but toothless until his grown up teeth come in. It still makes me feel terrible when he smiles.
Thursday I went to the ear doctor and all the kids are getting ear tubes and adenoids removed. I am hoping they will once again sleep at night. It seems we have gone through all the antibiotics and they still wake up screaming at night and tell me ouchy. So tomorrow is the big day we are going to the surgery center at 6:30. I'll let you all know how it goes.

As for the family we are doing well. The kids have been extra fussy the last couple of days. And this afternoon I went in to get the kids and Weston had stripped off all his cloths and he was covered head to toe with poop. ahhhh I am really glad it is 8:00 at night and the day is finally over.
I know the foundation website is down for a few days. The donation and store will be down for a few days.
Thanks for reading,

so what have we been doing? Aniston has started using the potty and Scarlett gets it, but just hasn't pottied on it. We had a big bazaar this weekend and sold about 30 calendars but it is definitely slower this year since we have less volunteers selling them. So if you sold them last year contact me and I will give you a bunch it would really help.
The house is going well. the roof is on and we are going to start drying the house out. I am sad to say we have almost maxed out our budged and we will have to stop things. The rock wall in the front of the house cost way way more then we thought it would, $70,000. Mary and Marilyn are doing the best they can calling for donations but since it is the end of the year people have given as much as they can. We still need cabinets, appliances, wire for the electric, light fixtures, insulation, gutters, gravel, fill, and rock. We have came so fare to stop but we have no choice. If you know of anyone who could help with contacting business or have a contact yourself please call Mary. We are also in need of volunteers at the house. Frank and Jerry we are thankful for your commitment to us.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving

Cami you are the tiniest of all the babies. I have always worried about your weight but I never worried about your will. You were the first to walk. When I think of you I think of your laugh it is contagious. I think you are the happiest baby I have ever seen. You run through the house with your tiny curls and your long curly eye lashes. When you see me you immediately jump into my arms and beery your head under my chin and hug me tight. I feel how much love you have for me. It sometimes can give me goose bumps when I see how much you love me. My little pixie your mama loves you.
Belle when I first saw you there were tubs and cords all over. I wanted so badly to see and touch you. I felt I couldn’t comfort you enough. Your cries were louder and more powerful then the other babies so I often felt you were hurting.
When I got you home I saw how much calmer you were. As time went on I watched a caterpillar turn into a butterfly. You are beautiful and very smart. You love to talk and from what I can tell you are the leader. You have a take charge personality. Weston is definitely your soul twin. You two laugh and chase one another. I really have to be careful not to leave you alone because I find you biting or hitting. When I scold you look at me with your sweet face and smile. You are my strong willed girl and I absolutely adore you little Belly.
Mommy and Daddy were so happy we have a little boy. You are gentle and loving. You and Belle have a strong bond you two love to play chase. Out of all the kids you need me the most I never could have imagined the bond between a mother and her son thank you for choosing me as your mom. Your body is like daddy's however you look like my brother (whom I always have adored. )When I think of you I picture you running towards me with a big smile and your arms open. I will always love every tiny peace of you.
Darling Aniston You were the first baby mommy got to hold. When the nurse put you in my arms your tiny eyes opened and you looked strait into my soul. You know just what Mommy needed at that time. I felt so lost and overwhelmed but seeing you and being able to hold you made me feel much better.
You are the biggest of the quints and the first to be born. There is always the widest smile across your face. You are known to be a mama’s girl. Sometimes when I pick you up you will pat me on the back and I melt. Your eyes are bluer then the bluest sea’s. I have always felt I have known you forever.
I often picture you as a teenager with beautiful blond hair and a sweet demeanor. Always keep your sweetness and your smiling eyes. I love you little Annie
