Rock Star

Jonnie decided to leave us to go on tour with his band. Reeerrr, reeeer...(my best rendition of a guitar sound).

In case you were really worried he left us, it is actually rock star day at school. He has some loooong hair to get into a mohawk, but we did it! He was sooo excited! He even got to bring a can of pop, as well. Life is good (:

Spring has sprung

Yesterday it actually got to 65 degrees!! Here are the boys lovin every minute of it!

This was a dramatization of Spider man flying and having a crash landing. Sound effects and all.

We are HAPPY to be outside again!

New Glasses!

Alaina got new glasses! I think they are adorable on her (can I say that about a 10 year old). They do make her look so different and older in a way. We briefly talked about contacts, but she said, "No way!" Fine by me (:

I will post better pictures later-she took these herself.

She is also busy thinking of ways to make money. I swear she will be an entrepreneur someday. Her latest.....she made this book of nail designs. She had me choose which design I wanted and then painted my nails for $.25. It was hard to choose because some of the designs were pretty outrageous! Plus, it wouldn't look very professional at work. So, I chose the least crazy of the bunch and here is a pictures of them. I felt like I had to explain to everyone at work the next day that my beautiful daughter painted them for me (: They have all peeled off and she is awaiting my next choice.....Her other current project she is working on is making toilet paper sheets for toddlers learning to pee. I think between her cousins and brother she is immersed in all things potty lately. Anyway, she colored sheets of toilet paper with markers and then wets it down so it looks like water colors. They turn out quite beautiful and I am proud of the art part of it. Not sure she will be able to sell squares of toilet paper, however. She currently has an entire bag full of them. I think I am going to talk her into making a collage of them all and hang it on her wall-they really are beautiful!

She also has a new best friend that likes to take up a big portion of her bed (: Dex is sure a BIG baby-and we all love it!

Hope everyone had a great weekend. We were thrilled today as it was in the 50's!! Spring is finally on it's way-I couldn't stop smiling today!

I just thought I would share some pictures of our day yesterday. I picked up Tucker from his daycare to have a play date with Sawyer. We went to the gym in town and then to McDonald's for lunch-they were both so fun to hang out with!

Here they are right after I picked up Tucker-he wasn't real sure what we were going to do (:

The next pictures are of them at the gym-Tucker took a little while to warm up to it all, but then went up and down the slide about 100 times! After that they both just liked to run around (:

Here some of the parents made an obstacle course and the kids took turns trying to walk across it.

They worked up an appetite and they both wanted to go to McDonalds. It was funny because they both ate everything!

After this they both wanted to go play at the park. Uh, maybe next time (:

Quote of the day

When getting groceries today with Sawyer and as I was taking the groceries out of the cart, he patted my leg and said, "you doing great, mom" and smiled at me with such love. Just had to share that as I thought it was the sweetest ever!
