Precious Girls

Kaitlyn was lounging around on the couch one evening, and Natalie decided to join her.
I bought Kaitlyn a shirt and vest set.  She loves it!
She wants to wear the vest every day.  She can't quite figure out why the pink and yellow doesn't go with everything she owns.

Happy Green Day!

We like to make St Patty's Day fun around here.  Not because we have any Irish in our blood, but because it's another excuse for a family fun day!
I had to go to the store at 10pm on St Patty's Eve, just to make sure all the kids had something green to wear.  The kids take the threat of getting pinched very seriously!
We had a couple of guys here in the morning to fix our sink.  The kids were very quick to point out that they weren't wearing green!  Did I mention that they take wearing green very seriously?!?!
The kids wanted to take turns with the camera.  These pictures turned out okay.  The rest of them ended up with our heads getting cut completely out of the picture.
We make our traditional Corned Beef dinner with roasted red potatoes and green salad.  The kids got green apple Kool-Aid and lime ice cream jello cups, and Papa and Granny brought a key lime pie.
As the kids like to say.... Happy Green Day!

Altar service

Anthony grabbed my phone and snapped a picture of the kids praying together during altar service at church this morning.  Sweetest thing ever.  Melts this mama's heart!

Conversation with Kids

After I left for work last night, the kids came home after spending the night at Grandpa and Grandma Bauer's....

Anthony: "Did you guys eat dinner?"
Kaitlyn: "Yes."
Anthony: "What did you eat?"
Kaitlyn: "I can't remember what it was called.  It was a fast food place."
Anthony: "You don't remember if it was McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Taco Bell..."
Kaitlyn: "I can't remember the name.  All I know is, the sign had a big white tooth with some red lines around it."
Anthony decided he might need to Google this one!  This is what he found...
Anthony (showing her the picture): "Is this it?"
Kaitlyn: "Yeah, that's where we ate!"

Laughing, he let her know that it was actually a hat, not a tooth.
Pretty accurate description, I think!  So funny!

Fun evening with my little sis

My little sister came over to visit last night, and had dinner with us.  Sadly, we are both so busy, and don't get together as much as either of us would like.  It was great to spend time together!  Oh, and there's nothing quite like a good game of Super Mario Memory!
Stylin' with Aunt Melanie's shades!
One of these nights very soon, we are going to have to have a real game night, with real grown up games!  The kids had a blast though!

Playing on the stairs.... again!

Natalie loves to play on the stairs.  It drives us crazy!  We are constantly getting onto her about it.  She will spend all day going up and down the stairs if you let her.  The thing is, she wants to go up and down like the older kids, carry her toys and blankets, and not hold on to the banister.  Sometimes she does great.  Sometimes not so much!
Not an uncommon sight.... her, lying in a heap at the bottom of the stairs, with whatever it was she was carrying.  Thankfully, she usually only falls down the first flight- that happens to be carpeted, and is a little more careful down the second.
This particular day, she happened to just be playing on the bottom two steps, and had some soft padding to land on.
Such a crazy girl!

Little musician

The kids love to sit in the music room and sing while Anthony plays the guitar.  I love that the kids are so excited about music!
Kaitlyn really wants to learn to play, so Anthony's been trying to teach her a little bit.  I'm sure they'll be playing together before you know it.  She's quite the determined little girl!

A boy and his dog

Talon loves Kallie.  Kallie loves Talon.  She will put up with almost anything from him.  It's pretty sweet!

Blue-Eyed Girl

Hard to believe my baby is getting so big!  Sometimes I wish I could set the hour glass on its side, and stall time.  It just goes by way too fast!
