Lunch Time!

Lunch Time!

So, Koen is now in a playgroup every Tuesday morning with four of his boys (one is missing, but his brother gladly stepped in)!  Yes, this picture represents the only quiet moment we had this morning!  I can’t tell you how thankful I’ll be when words are thrown out and not punches (I would literally turn my back and someone would be hitting, pinching or biting someone else)!  Two of the Five are even my own children (brothers, which make for all the more excitement)!  Even after all this, we still had a great time!  I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these boys!

Come on Down Momma T!

So Momma T, my mother, has always had this goal to take all of her children to “The Price is Right” and oh yes, she finally did it!  We actually flew out the day of the latest CA Earthquake, July 29th (yeah nothing was going to stop us)!  We flew out that Tuesday only to wake up at 2:45am Wednesday morning to wait in line there at CBS Studios!  We literally waited from 4am until we walked into the taping at 12:45pm!  Yes, it was a long wait, but we met some interesting people and were able to make our very “unique” t-shirts (yes, we used sharpies)!  From the moment the Tieman Fam walked through the studio doors (I wish you all could have seen), all guards were down!!  Yes, even Melissa started bustin some moves!  No, we weren’t called up and didn’t win one of the six or so vehicles up for grabs, but we did get our moment with Drew.  He complimented my mom on how young she looked for having so many children and asked Adam a few questions about his career as a Firefighter/Paramedic.  I actually saw a whole different side of Drew I never thought existed.  He was awesome!  To say the least, we had an amazing time and I am so thankful to have had that time to spend with my mom and siblings.  Oh, if you want to see us in the crowd, right behind the bidders, our taping will be shown on Sept. 26th!

Thanks mom for an amazing time.  We love you.

Watch Out World!

Maddie started the 1st Grade last Monday!  She loves her class and especially her teacher, Mrs. Horn!  She has so many great friends in her class!  I don’t think she’ll ever want to miss a day!

Peyton went back to Ms. Jodi’s today!  This is her second year with Ms. Jodi and she is so excited that she now gets to go four days instead of three.  She told me that she can’t go on Fridays because it is Sunday!  We love Ms. Peyton!
