"What lies behind us, and what lies before us are small matters

My friend,Theresa, came over this weekend and took a few videos for your entertainment:

Theresa also took four of the girls for the weekend, leaving me with only Elliot and Victoria! The house was eerily quiet. Thank you Theresa! I took my oldest and my youngest out for a special dinner at Red Lobster.

Elliot got his favorite, crab legs.

Victoria was fascinated by the claw. She mostly ate croutons with blue cheese dressing.

Thank you so much Theresa! I even got to take a nap, but I am sure missed them! I think they will sleep well tonight. Catherine is one tired cow-poke! 


  1. Please tell Isabella that I do home visits with an early intervention program and she's good enough to tag along with me any day! ;) What a natural talent she has. Wow. Better than some adults I see. :)

  2. And Catherine is out of her swimsuit :) She does look very pretty in her dress!

  3. Love your video footage!! How fun to hear everyone's voices. V and F are doing so well. I enjoyed seeing them in action.
    Isabella, you are a great helper!
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thank you very much for posting this video, picture are great but having the opportunity to listen to you is so special to me, feels like being part of your friends.

    Thank you again, Isabella has such a mature beautiful voice. I thought it was you or a friend of yours at the beginning!

  5. Isabella has a great speaking voice! She sounds so mature!! She's very good with the little ones, she would make a wonderful teacher!

  6. I love the videos! Reading your blog always brings a smile; your kids are all so amazing.

  7. Love it!
    They were working so hard and talking so well!! YEA!
    Isabella totally rocks! In pictures she comes across so elegant and mature and sweet and hearing her with the girls she really is! She really has a gift!

  8. What a wonderful big sister the little girls have! Loved the videos, thanks for sharing!

  9. That is SO COOL to see all your girls live!

    I vote for a video of little C next!

  10. I love seeing what your family is up to, and that little Victoria has captured my heart! Thanks for the videos. Isabella is a great helper, indeed. Amazing!

  11. Big sister did such an awesome job with the flash cards! I love her gentleness. I'd love to know where you got the box of the big flashcards if you don't mind sharing (the ones that Isabella was doing with the little ones).

    1. We got the flash cards on Amazon, they are a touch and feel kind and very sturdy.
