Update from Colorado and Merry Christmas

Yes, we are in Colorado for Christmas this year!! Madison and Parker got letters from Santa...He knows that we are in Colorado. Yeppee!!

Our Christmas Cards have been sent out announcing some very important information the Feagans Family is holding. Check out the card below for our announcement!!!

Yes, our card announces the upcoming birth of baby #4. I am due July 13th. I have an August baby so this should not be too bad :) As of right now I am feeling extremely exhausted, and I have been much more sick with this pregnancy. I am looking forward to the 2nd trimester so I am feeling better. As with 2 out of the 3 other children we will not be finding out what the gender of this baby will be but I am already feeling like this one is a girl.
We must be sensitive to the little ears in our family when talking about what we "think" we are having. I was nearly 99.9% sure that Lincoln was a girl, and we expressed this to everyone. Needless to say I think Madison was brokenhearted when she found out he was a BOY.
I will be posting photos of our vacation in the days to come!! Check back......

Where Have I Been?

Well, I have been to the doctor, a bunch.....for the kids and me. It seems that we had a virus going through our home. It did not start just after Halloween, no that was just me being lazy and not posting.

A little family update:

Daniel: We are thanking God daily that he still has a job since there were some lay off's that recently happened at his company. He is still running 3 out of town jobs. Luckily he has not been out of town for them too much. Just day trips here and there.

Me: I have been making bows and binkie cords. I plan to see the bows and the binkie cords and give the profit to our church building fund. I have taken the winter off from lessons. My mom is still watching the boys on Mondays and I get a break to do Mommy stuff and help out in Madison's 1st grade class.

Madison: She is loving 1st grade. She has been having spelling test now for some time and I don't think she has missed one word...GO MADISON!! She is very excited for Santa to come. She is getting taller and more beautiful by the day :)

Parker: Parker is finishing up his last week of school and I am sure that he will be upset when he doesn't get to go. He wants to be just like Sissy. He has taken the roll of "Big Brother" to a whole new level. He is a protector of his little brother and helps him through out the day, making sure that he gets pushed in at the table, helping Lincoln find his shoes, playing with him and calling him his "Buddy." It is priceless to see them together.

Lincoln: He is growing up sooo fast! He is saying 3-4 word sentences. He is a lover. He wants to be with his brother ALL the time. Lincoln is very busy and he is starting to talk and explain things like Parker does. It is so funny to hear them talking to each other. They have their own little "talk" it is like listening to 2 old men tell stories!!

With Thanksgiving just passed and Christmas around the corner we are such a blessed family. We have the greatest families and friends a family could ask for :)

Since I have been sooo lazy, Merry Christmas if I don't get back on here to blog :)

Trick or Treat?

Ok, so I know I am a few days late but I wanted to show off my cuties!!
Madison, the dancing Zebra, We made this costume. I made the tutu, the tail and I sewed the heart on the shirt...GO ME!!

The Tail

Parker, the Monster but often called himself a dragon.

Lincoln, will always be Mommies Monkey. He was the first one to climb on top of my kitchen table!

Hope you enjoy!

One more thing....

The weather here in Missouri is CRAZY, our Halloween night is usually rainy and cold, they year Parker didn't wear the hood of his costume most of the night because he was so hot. True fall weather will not be back until Thursday or Friday of this week.

"I have to go to my soccer practice."

Do you know how often we hear this in one week at our house?

Parker LOVES soccer....No really, he LOVES it.

That is all the talk around our house these days!!

Below are some photos of Parker, his team and his silly brother!

What is it with kids when they do this streach or move, as Parker calls it...

their little foot goes in the air?

I know this one is a little blurry but I think it truly captures how happy he is out there playing (or running the cones)!

I am done getting hit by careless drivers please avoid my van...... Thanks!!

Yes, I have been in 2 car accidents in the past 2 weeks. They have all been THEIR fault.

Last week, a man(of course I had to point this out) hit my parked van when he was backing into a NON parking spot. I was not sitting in my car and he didn't look like he cared until I started walking his way. Then he grabbed his cell phone and said I am calling the police. I told him to just hold his horses and let me look at the damage before we call the police, fire department and ambulance because your your carelessness...... Really, there was no damage but next time watch out......

Yesterday, I was the middle car in the accident. From the front their was a blue car (I knew the passengers, how crazy is that?), MY CAR, a black VW and a RED car who was flying thought the intersection to make the red light. The car was stopped in front of me because they were waiting for another car to turn into Starbucks (I knew there was a reason I didn't care for Starbucks). They could not turn because of a semi trying to get out of the parking lot.

So please watch out..... :)

Works for ME! Wednesday

With little time in the morning and no desire to pack Madison's lunch the night before I had to come up with a way to help me have more time in the morning to get 3 kids ready and out the door.

So this is what I do....

1. Make the

2. Pour into individual cups.....

3. Stack in fridge.

This allows me to just grab them and throw them in her sack lunch. It also helps the environment by not using a bunch of baggies. I use these reusable containers for everything in her lunch. You can also use them for pudding, applesauce, dividing a big bag of fruit snacks....the list goes on and on! Enjoy!

Today I did it.....I bought my first cloth diaper. We are thinking about the change for L-Train.

I put it on him after I got home today. At first he squatted down and then looked at me like I was crazy that I put that thing on him.

Later in the evening I gave him a bath and put him back into a disposal diaper. I did not put any jammies on him since I was calling the others in for baths and I knew he would be in the bathroom getting wet.

Later in the evening (still unclothed) I hear grunting in the back of the house. Not such a big deal when Madison's door is closed but I saw it open so I thought he was in her room getting into something he should not be in. As I am walking down the hall I hear the sound and the word "potty" coming from our room.

Lincoln had pulled off his diaper and was sitting on the potty!!!

Now this would be a wonderful post IF I could also report that he did something in the potty....but it looked like this.....

So does pulling his diaper off and sitting on the potty mean that we can start training? Parker was just weeks over 2 when he was potty trained. Maybe the cloth diapers are a good choice for him right now :)

I do not support Obama. Over all this video is sad.....but he should not rely on someone else to feed him his speach.....

post signature

Nine words I use.....definations do not apply to me :)


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3)Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.

(4)Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome' ..... that will bring on a 'whatever').

(8)Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F*cK YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I got it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself.

Big Cedar Lodge

We went on a little family vacation before Madison had to head back to school.
I was at Bass Pro not too long ago and I was approached by an employee that wanted to sell me a weekend at Big Cedar Lodge for $49. WOW, a weekend in a hotel and access to BCL for a whole weekend. That was a deal :)
However, for this family of 5 to get all packed up and spend a weekend somewhere it has to be more than 2 days if we are driving over 4 hours.

So that being said he had a bigger offer (of course) 3 nights/4 days, sounds good was a BLAST!

We paid $249 for this package. Oh and the catch.....we had to sit and go through a membership deal.....I was really surprised that there was not more pressure to buy. We said "NO" and we took the $200 in Big Cedar Bucks and we ran out the door!
So we ended up paying $49 for the extended time.
Below are some photos of what we did with our $$!

How Sweet is this?
