Six kids

I was the mother of six kids for a week...my own two and then 4 of my nieces and nephews while their parents went to Chile for a week. Although it was a lot of work (especially because Blaine had an extremely busy work and school week and I felt like a SINGLE mother of 6 most of the time), it was also a lot of fun. To maintain my sanity I did paper plates and bowls all week, we ate lots of hot dogs, mac and cheese, spaghetti, and burritos. We went out quite a bit to the library, the park, the movies, the bounce place, and McDonalds play place. We made valentine's cookies, ordered pizza, watched High School Musical 3 and many other movies, and played, played, played. We had a dance party on our last night with the kids and I'm sure you'll agree that these kids have some serious rock moves. (Oh, and by the way...I took very few pictures this past week...who has time for pictures with so many kids???)

I'm glad to see that we aren't the only ones to use cousin dances to wear the kids down and take up some good energy. Two kids to 6 is a lot! Way to go in keeping your sanity and having fun at the same time!
