Feature Friday!

So its Friday! Hooray! And I thought to help me catch up on so much "back postings" that I *should* have done, I will start doing a feature story each Friday! (In the hopes that I will catch up somehow- now the only problem is where to begin?! *sigh)

So I think I will start with Scout Crossovers first seeing as I believe that was the first major event to happen since my *falling out* <--Ugh it sounds soooo horrible!

So now.. I bring you... Feature Friday: Scout Crossover!

(did you happen to notice that I started each paragraph with so? Haha.. I noticed too but instead of editing and taking it out- I thought I would leave it in, you know, so the future me could see my lack of skills! Wink)

Scouting has been a big thing in our family lately. With both Chugo and Kata in it its hard for it to NOT be a big thing. Chugo had just started scouts in May of 08. The crossover was in Feb. 09. Yes dates blah blah.. my point in telling you this timeframe is that within the 9mos since starting scouts he earned all 20 webelos activity badges and received the heavy shoulder award! I was so proud of him. He had so much catching up to do with the other boys and did it in no time!

For those of you who aren't familiar with the scouting world... Crossing over means leaving Cub Scouts and entering into Boy Scouts. They had a big ceremony called the Blue and Gold. After dinner and cake (yum!) They had the crossover ceremony and it was so wonderful to see Chugo entering into this new arena. He was so proud of himself that I had one of those, "Omg don't be a tard and cry" moments that we so often find ourselves in as Mothers.

With out further ado I give you Chugo... The Boy Scout Boy Wonder!

Sigh... I dunno how many times I am going to have to promise to make time for this.. but here we go again... round two.. BING

I'm back!
I'd like to say for good, but well my track record isn't looking so hot. It has been quite some time since my last post and about a bazillion things have happened since then!

for example:

Chugo made his First Communion, crossed over to boy scouts and is now starting up baseball.
Kata got his tonsils out and is in scouts and also has started baseball
(baseball is seems keeps up busy almost every evening during the week and on the weekends too!)
Moose and Bus have hit the 18 mos milestone YAY! they were also baptized in Feb!

My parents came for the holidays and stayed through the winter- just having left a couple weeks ago! :( It was so wonderful to have all the extra hands around the house thats for sure!

AND... drum roll please... the super gates have been taken down and the twins have free range of the living room and dining room! The place has become somewhat of a large playroom I have to admit. I do try to clean it up umpteen times during the day but I swear as soon as I turn my back its a mess again! (I know you twin mommies will feel my pain on this one!) We have also had to hide the dining room chairs seeing as our wee monkeys have discovered climbing! I have never baby proofed a house as I did with these two boys! (It amazes me how many safety items are on the market these days- I never would have even guessed the uses of half of them- or even thought they were needed until we took down the gates... and now.. They are MUST HAVES! lol)

But really- its been wonderful. I love to see them growing and coming into their own little people! They are like day and night as far as personalities- which is great as far as helping us to tell them apart!

Well that is about all the time I have for the moment. I will attempt to catch up on each of the aboved mentioned events- Seeing as we have some great pictures of them all!
But until then... I VOW... yes VOW.. to get back on here. I think I need the support!
