Scouts motto: Always be Prepared

Keeping the scout motto in mind of Be Prepared last Saturday our family took a trip to the local nursery for 2 reasons. 1. We knew it would be hard to pick out the flowers to plant in our yard after Sophie arrived & 2. Knowing we would be in the hospital for mother's day, we wanted to get a little something for Grandma Fergy's Mom's Day gift ahead of time. We told Phoebe she could pick any flower to give to grandma Fergy which she was super excited to do.
Normally we try to be prepared for our next baby about 1 month before they are scheduled to arrive. This time however we were a little slow, as in 2 days before she was scheduled to come, before this pink & green nursery was ready for one cute lil' occupant.  We chose the colors based on what scrap materials I used to make her baby quilt from.  I then looked online for cute, simple and unique art pieces I could create to finish out the cute look of her room.
Overall, I am very excited with how cute everything turned out; I just hope she likes it when she gets to finally see it herself!

Scripture Study

Last Sunday Phoebe had the opportunity once again to participate in the opening exercises of her primary's sharing time by giving the scripture.  She was really excited to do this and once again she did a really excellent job and we were super proud to witness the big girl my baby Phoebs is growing up to be. 

Forced Fergy Family Fun Night

Last Friday we decided to once last fun outing as the Fergy Five so we all packed up and headed to he mall for dinner and fun.  Unfortunately Cory was not in the mood for fun family play because had received the news that his office didn't win the bid to design a new DAs office downtown so that is where the forced fun part come into our night of  Fergy fun. 
On a happier note Phoebe was excited to pick out her own dinner. As you can see in the picture she got a kids meal from Hot Dog on a Stick. We told her if she ate all of her over priced kids meal she could ride on the carousel, so she immediately began stuff her face & pick out which horse she wanted to ride!
After dinner and the carousel we took all the kids down to play in the mall's Dino Play land. Josh & Cami LOVED playing with a globe that turned and stood and played with it half of the night, the other half of the night they stood in front of the slides so eventually they go repacked and came shopping with me while Phoebs continued to run around and play in Dino land.
After all the kids were done playing and shopping we made one more stop in the mall to visit one of Phoebs' most favorite spots...the water fountain.  I gave her the only 2 pennies I had in my purse and she excitedly tossed them into he fountain.  She then asked us to get them back so she could do it again.  We tried to explain to her that we don;t take money out of the fountain, but she was pretty upset so we called it a night and  headed packed up and headed  home to rest from all our Fergy Family Fun night
Hopefully our wee ones had fun celebrating one of our last fun outings as the Fergy Five.

Ready or not Summer here we Come

In the last couple of weeks the Fegy kiddos have been so anxious for summer fun. We have bought some of   their summer clothes, shoes and accessories.  The twiners LOVE their new flipflop and everyday they search them out and bring them to me to put on or try to put them on their selves.
It has been truly wonderful for me to be able to send the little ones out to play because #1 they are not dependent on me for entertainment and #2 they play so hard that they sleep like little angles.
Have I ever mentioned that the twiners LOVE bath time. They immediately run into any bathroom  if they see an open door and bang on the tub so you know they want to take a bath. If you tell them no bath or are just too slow, the twins have learned to just help themselves to bath time.
