Hi It's been a while since i blogged. Let's see whats been going on.... We had our first bonfire of the summer on June 14. Fun times were had by all. It lasted until 4 a.m. and I had 10 kids (2 are mine) and Amy and Joe who all spent the night. The McNeely's showed back up at 9 a.m. with breakfast food! Yummy! We all hung out until about noon and everyone left. So the Van Hammonds had family nap time. The week following started with Ellie getting sick with Hand foot mouth disease. By Wednesday Taylor had some sort of stomach bug. She finally started feeling better by Sunday. She was bummed that she missed soccer. During all this mom and dad have been working non stop. So on Saturday when I had to work 2-10 I got sick and had to come home. (sick of being at work) I came home and Amy and Joe had us over for another fire. The girls slept over and tom and I got to sleep in. On Sunday I got the girls and came home and this little thing called Karma got the best of me. Yes I got that stomach bug that Taylor had earlier in the week. (I guess i shouldn't fake being sick!) So we didn't go to the Pool on Sunday like I said we would. Monday after work we went to the pool and had to leave early because someone pooped in the pool. The kids thought that was totally gross and funny. This weekend I think we are going to lay low and save our energy for the up coming weekend of the fourth. So if you need us we will be around this weekend. (I will more than likely be at my home away from home WORK!!!) Hope you all have a wonderful lazy weekend. N:)

Random Babble

Wow- I really think we need some more rain...J/K. So summer vacation has started and already I hear how bored Taylor is. So tonight she is sleeping over at her friend Maggie Reagan's. Would someone tell me where the time has gone? I can hardly believe that she is almost 9 years old. Sleeping over at friends houses. It is just to much sometimes. Ellie is 4. She is such a free loving spirit I think everyone should get an Ellie. I tell you it feels like I just had these girls yesterday. Today I went to my sisters house and saw Violet,( did i mention that i was there when she was born and cut the cord.) She is getting so big almost 4 months. She is rolling all around and smiling like nobodies business. Emlyn she was sleeping so I didn't get to see her but she is getting so big also. My godson Ben he is 2 and he finally isn't scared of me. Which makes me feel a little bit better about myself. Steph, Josh and Ben have just bought a new house which is very exciting for them and my kids. (they think that they will be sleeping over all the time.) I sometimes forget how lucky I am until I think of all the kids in my life and i know that i am. Another time I will let you know about all my friends kids and how great they all are. try to stay dry...:) N

My First Blog

So I thought to myself I think I am going to do a blog. Well here I am doing one. Not quite sure what to do or why to do one. I figure I really don't make enough time to talk to all the people I want to and share all the exciting things that go on here at the Van Hammond's. So I hope that I will be able to give updates to you. So wish me luck!! I hope you will all come back and check up on us once and a while... XOXO N :)
