Busy Busy

I was totally hoping I could keep up on the blog!! My life is just so BUSY! Here is an update from our busy life...

Boston... He turned 1 in March... Can't believe it. He is now walking, getting into everything and has developed in to quite the little man. We are completely in love with him. The girls adore him. He loves blocks, trucks and balls.

Addyson- Our little character! She is so full of life and energy. She warms up to anyone within minutes, shes amazing. Addy is attending preschool and loves it. She knows her ABC's, can count to 15 and knows most of her colors (she likes to switch them up every now and then) She loves her grandmas, Auntie Mimi and mommy. She loves to shop, bake and do crafts.

Berkleigh- Little princess. Is doing great in preschool. She loves it as well. She can count to 101! She knows all colors/shapes/ letter and sounds. This week shes been learning addition and doing great at it. Its amazing what kids can learn in just a year. We've been very impressed with the girls school and how well they've done. We aren't sure our school plans for next year quite yet. Berkleigh is not old enough for kindergarden... missed the deadline by 26 days.. BOO. We feel she's more than ready for kindergarden.

Kevin is keeping busy with kids/work/school.. Now that the weather is nice he is keeping up on his golfing.

and finally me! I've been keeping busy with work, when I'm not there I'm enjoying every minute possible with my lil kiddos... I've been thinking a lot about of future and have decided to enroll back in school and continue to work towards my nursing degree. I'm very excited for the future and opportunities to come! I'm planning on starting to take classes again this summer and hope to be done in about 2.5 years. It's going to be a challenging time with kids, life and working full time and adding school in the mix, but I feel like taking the challenge!

Sorry I've been a bit of a slacker lately. Time has just flying by and I've been so busy with work, kids and life! So the last month here is what we've been up to!
Dec 1st was a big day for Addyson! She started preschool at Challenger and LOVES it! She is a bit more attached to me and I thought she would have a hard time being left.... boy was I wrong! She could of cared less, which was great, made it easy for me! Her teacher seems great, she has only about 7 kids in her class which is good for her. We are now on Christmas break and everyday she says is it time for me to go to school yet!?
Boston is 9 months and is on the move! He has mastered crawling and is getting into everything! He is also starting to pull himself up on the couch! His 2nd tooth has finally broke thru. I was afraid he was only going to have one tooth for a while! His first lower tooth erupted about 1 month ago and is in pretty well.. Hope this new one hurries! He loves to eat his puffs, yogurt melts and cheeto puffs.... He had his 9 mo check up last week and is 30" long (97%) weighs 18lbs (25%) and big head (96%) He is our growing boy!
and finally Berkleigh she is still doing great at school. She still loves it. A few weeks ago she earned her Alphabet crown.(earned by saying all letters and their sounds) She is VERY proud of her crown and we are very proud of her! Her teacher said she is one of the top in the class, which is great! She is also on Christmas break from school and ready to go back!

Christmas came a little early to us this year.... I decided to be on top of it and wrap a few presents early and put under tree... Well one morning the girls got up and thought it was Christmas and OPENED them! I was at work.. and kevin was ummm "resting". So we all learned a lesson from that. I DON'T put presents out too early and girls Don't open presents til Mommy or Daddy says it Christmas! At least it was only a few of the smaller gifts I had bought. They are wrapped back up and under the tree!

I think we are all ready for Christmas. Today I will finish wrapping and see what I've missed. Mr Claus has a big wooden kitchen to put together or it will be a very late Christmas eve! We are excited for all of festivities this weekend! It will be nice to spend time with all our families! We have had a very blessed year!

We got our family pictures taken back in Sep/Oct. I always like to do the pictures for the kids at 6months and every birthday and it had been forever since we had family pictures taken so.... I combined it all and got Family the girls 3rd and 4th birthday and Boston 6month pictures! It went great! I LOVE how the pictures turned out and I have never used a professional photographer I usually always go to Portrait Innovations, but I will def continue to use Annie with Let it Shine Photography!

Enjoy and everyone will be getting some soon since I got the CD today... let me know your favorites! And my next task is Christmas cards! Any suggestions on good websites?

Keeping up with the Crumleys...

I started this blog a few years ago... and we can see how that went! So I'm back at it! I want to be able to look back and remember all the events/timing with the kids and us as a family... Life seems to go so fast and this will be a great way to be able to look back and see all our great memories. Here is the latest with all of us:
Melissa- I'm one busy mama, but I absolutely enjoy every minute of it! I am working full-time at Lineberry Orthodontics, I work in the front office. I've worked there 3 years in January and enjoy it..(most of the time ;) When I'm not working away... I'm keeping busy with the kids.

Berkleigh is now 4 years old.. Everytime you ask her how old she is she says i'll be five on my next birthday then 6 then 7....etc.. She just turned 4 in September, but is ready for the next birthday already! She is our little sponge, she started pre-school in August and she LOVES it! She is going to Challenger, its a private school and is pretty close to the house. She goes on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30am-11:30am. Berkleigh has learned so much so far just in the short time, I went to school on her birthday and the teacher said that she had started reading words that day. Lately she has been spelling words too, yesterday she spelled Zoo and Please. She has also developed quite the vocabulary... We were trying home the other night and I told the girls we would get home put on our PJs then I would let them pick a book and I would read to them... Berkleigh says mom... "Use your imagination tell us a story!" haha! I just laughed.. She has made some friends too, Bella, is her "best friend" her other friends are Reese, Olivia and Isabella. We are very impressed with the school thus far. When Berkleigh is not at preschool she loves to play with her sister and brother.

Addyson is now 3... She is a mamas girl, she is finally okay in just the last few months of me leaving for work. Makes it nice to be able to leave and tell her I will be home later and for her to understand... It would break my heart to leave her crying! Addyson loves everything girl, she loves dress up, princesses, babies, purses and playdoh. She will be starting pre-school on Dec 1st and will also be attending Challenger on Tuesdays/Thursday. Kevin will get a few hour break to spend some quality time with Boston! I'm excited for Addyson to finally start pre-school, she was suppose to start the end of October, but they pushed it til December. I think it will be good for her to be able to do some independent things.
And then there is our little boy Boston...

Boston is now 8 months old! Man where did the time go? Seems like yesterday we were counting down until he was here. Boston is starting to be on the move! The last few weeks he has mastered the army crawl, he will be crawling in no time! (Uh Oh) Three on the go!!? Its been pretty easy with the girls but adding another mover to the mix, I'm a little worried. Boston loves his sisters, he also loves the animals. He is Mr. Smiley! He is also so happy and just smiley! Lately his "stranger danger" has kicked in a bit...but not too bad! He is gaining some wait, he is still on the smaller side of life last Dr. visit he weighed 17 lbs (12%) He has been eating a TON lately, so his 9 month check up will be interesting to see how much he gains. I bought some baby food at Babies R Us a few weeks ago, it was on sale I had never tried it with the girls its Organic Earths Best. They had some real interesting flavors ( spinach & potatoes, Peas & Brown Rice, Tomato Carrot) but he LOVES them. He ate two jars just during the day when Kevin had him! He has also gotten his first tooth! It appeared last Saturday (11/12) Lower left tooth, the 2nd lower one hasn't appeared just yet! His hair is also coming in pretty good, I cut it a few months back and since then its really come in! I'm sure we'll be visiting our favorite sister in law hair cutter soon!

And last but not least Kevin: He is still working at UPS as a supervisor. He took this semester off of school, but will be attending again in January. When he is not having daddy day care he enjoys his time playing football on the weekends with his work friends, going/watching BSU games and of course spending time with his lovely family!
