59: Another One Bites the Dust

We have had all kinds of sick rolling through our home for 2 weeks now. I thought we had it beat but this guy started running a fever last night. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will be short lived for him.

Day 58: The Beards are Back

Tonight is the night. I've been waiting, for what feels like, forEVAH. They are back, and I will be watching the redneck awesomeness as soon as the kids are in bed. I felt it was only fitting for today's photo to include our very own bearded mountain man. He's sick and wasn't too thrilled I was snapping at him. He's hanging with our eldest. Looking at toy magazines. Discussing what was circled and why it was circled. What was not circled and why it was not circled.

Day 57: Silver Linings

We took advantage of a Groupon that was about ready to expire tonight. We went and saw Silver Linings. I loved it and he loved it. We may have enjoyed it more than most since we were escaping the sick that's been plaguing us for 2 weeks.

Day 56: The Road to Recovery

This poor guy has been sick for 6 days. We figured out Saturday that it was strep throat. We were hoping for a speedy recovery once the medicine kicked in. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case :( I snapped this picture of him napping on my lap this afternoon. This is the ONE and ONLY nice thing about the sickies. Extra snuggles <3 p="">

Day 55: Sunday Funday

This was our Sunday morning. We cleaned. Then played. Now 2 little dudes are sleeping while the other's are out playing ball. The house is quiet except for a big fur ball yawning in my ear. Time for some Easter Heaven :)

Day 53: Bright Spot

This was quite possibly THEEE most beautiful rainbow I have ever seen. The picture from my phone doesn't do it justice. I have never seen colors so vibrant! It was a nice little bright spot in our otherwise gloomy, and rainy day.

Day 52: Jake

This picture isn't all that exciting but we are still recovering around here. This is his new buddy Jake. We've been waiting a while for him and are happy he's here to snuggle!

I found these bad boys a few day's after Halloween. On clearance. So I bought them all. Best.Purchase.Ever.

Day 49: Busted

I have a small obsession with this game. Mainly because I play with my far away brother. It makes me feel like I'm spending real time with him, and my far away nephews. My favorite part is when the boys let me know I'm going to be " Crying for my momma for 10 days " when I lose. Or my favorite one " You are so BUSTED". Those nephews of mine are pretty cool.

Day 48: Summer

 It was an emotional afternoon for me today. I said goodbye to an old friend and caught up with some I haven't seen in a long time. I came home to my loves all in their swimming suits. I needed a little summer today and in one way or another I got it.

Day 47: Prim

Meet Prim Dog. Her name is supposed to be Primrose but Dad affectionately refers to her as Primdog. She's a sweetie pie but a stinker, and is in dire need of a groom. This is her waiting for the big kids to get off the bus. I think this is her favorite part of the day.

Day 44: Video Monitor

I'm not sure how I made it through 3 kids without one of these. It's pretty amazing. I don't use it so much at night anymore, but mostly to spy on the kids when they are playing. These 2 were really cute this afternoon. They played for quite a while, in the crib that doesn't get used anymore :/  There was a lot of car driving, block throwing, ear pinching and jumpy jumpin going on.

Day 43: Slow Motion Football

The evening started with a game of football in his bedroom. This isn't something they are supposed to be doing. When caught they decided it would be a good idea to play some "slow motion football". Hoping, of course, that they wouldn't get caught. One LOUD crash, and a terrible scream later..... they got caught. I'm not entirely sure how he did it but he hurt his knee pretty good. Something about running into a wall. At least he's all better now.

Day 42: The Help

 She's getting pretty good at this making lunch stuff. The cool thing is she loves to do it. She will be a gourmet chef in no time!

Day 41: His box

This is his finished project. He's pretty impressed with his work! The only help I gave was the cutting of the mouth and curling of the ribbon.

Such a good Big Sister.

Day 39: A Masterpiece in the Making

We got started on his Valentine collection box today. First phase is done. Yellow and Red were his colors of choice. I'm interested to see how he chooses to finish it off!

Day 38: Happy Birthday!

It was Grandma's Birthday today. It was pretty amazing we got a picture with ALL 4 of them looking at the camera! Plus 3 out of  4 smiles :) Can you spy which one of them has been helping himself to some cake?

Day 36: Family Night

Today we had a family night. We went to a local indoor play place, ate INSIDE a restaurant, and exchanged a birthday gift. This little one had a lot of unexpected fun!

Day 35: E

Today, at school, he moved into a level E for reading. This is a HUGE deal for him! He was so proud of himself and he should be.

Day 34: Slowing it down

After all the fun yesterday, I am so happy to just take it easy today! M, and I, read every book in our arsenal this morning, and in a few hours we will witness football victory. Hopefully it won't be the Raven's wearing that big shiny ring!

Day 33: A great day for a partay!

We've been looking forward to this day for a long time! I believe it was a success!

60: Shoe Success!

Little Ms informed me this AM that she needed new flats. Hers had holes in them. So after school we went shopping. I love that she knows what she wants, is quick to make her decisions, and then is happy with what  she picked. I have another one that is the exact opposite. She hasn't taken these off...except to sleep...since we bought them. I'd say that is pretty successful shoe shopping!

Day 32: 6

Today is her day <3 p="">
