The last 24 hours

This is a glimpse into our last 24 hours. It didn't go well, hence the two buckets with the kids on the couch. All beds have been changed, clean sheets are back on the beds, bathrooms are clean, bedrooms are clean and everyone is in their own bed. It was a long night and tonight I look forward to sleeping all night long. My next picture will be a happy one.

Spring Break 2012

We just got back from a wonderful weekend at the beach. It didn't rain or snow, which it had just days before we got there. It was even 61 degrees on Saturday!!

On our way home the rain started to fall :/

We all needed to get away and feel the warmth of the sun and sand in our toes. I can't wait until its consistently warm and dry :) Happy Spring Break!!

First full day of spring.....

This what we woke up too. And it continued all day long and it still continues all night long. We only had a 2 hour delay. I'm hoping for cancelled school tomorrow. Happy spring :)

McKinley's first play date

McKinley had her first play date this morning. Her bff is Ella and she is 6 months older than McKinley. Ella's big sister Sarah is besties with Reagan and they have known each other since they were babies. They have also been in the same class since pre school. The girls had a blast and we look forward to watching our kids grow up together. We just love this family!!

Happy Birthday to my better half....Timmy!!

I love this man so much! He is such a great husband and father. We are truly blessed to have this man in our lives. Happy Birthday Tim!! We have celebrated your birthday 14 times as a couple, that just blows my mind. Oh, and this is how our picture's usually turn out....we can blame it on McKinley this time, she started it. I love this funny bunch :)

Reagan got her own TV.

Reagan's Papa Kim gave her this little portable television and it's also a radio. Its turned into quit the novelty item in our home. Its only black & white and has just two channels, well three if you count that it picks up the baby video monitor. The two channels it does get are nw32tv, a CW affiliate and the other channel is the church channel or that is what we call it. Reagan loves to adjust the antenna, and fiddle with the nobs. No remote, no color, no cartoons, no dvd or wii hook up, just a tiny tv with a few channels. Reagan watched an old western called Silverado for about 10 minutes, then a sermon on the church channel for a few minutes and then she was done. McKinley wanted her own turn and watched for as long it took to take the picture.

I shared with Reagan that the first TV I had in my home as a little girl was built by her Granddad. It had no remote and two dials to turn in order to change the channels. She now thinks her Granddad can build anything.....I love that!

Today was the second day we had sun and 60 degrees!! I wore capris and the kids didn't need jackets. It has been so fun to watch McKinley explore the outside as an independent walker. I can't wait for summer!!

Reagan colored a picture and named it "sea bridge". The Bush Barn Art Center is sponsoring a youth showcase for all students K-12 in our area. Reagan entered her picture and next Saturday we find out if she won an award. Either way we are so proud of her! She loves art and we try to foster and support her in her creativity.

Morning snuggles

This is how most mornings start in our home. Me on the couch feeding McKinley a bottle of warm whole milk. Its so nice that the morning sun has been greeting us. Have a happy weekend everyone!!

Photo booth fun

I found a whole bunch of pictures on my photo stream. This is one of the silliest and maybe my favorite one. It's just so funny, you can't help but laugh or at least giggle.

Oh and I finally changed out the Christmas layout design, your welcome. I wish there was an easy way to change my blog from my iPad. I would also like to be able to upload pictures to my blog from my iPad. Right now I am just sending one picture in an email. Another time I will figure that out. Happy weekend everyone :)

My new obsession

Scrabble Flash is really fun and a highly addicting game. The oldest 3 in our family love this game. Reagan is getting very good and I hope it is also building on what she already knows. I will stop and play a quick game in between making lunch or unloading the dishwasher but it always turns into a longer game. Thank you to our great friends, the Donaldson' rock!!
