Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! As you can tell, we wish we were Irish around here! :)

Kristin, Tom, Lydia, Erynn, and Colin

All I want for Easter?!?

Well, it happened. Lydia had her first real accident. It happened at school and was slightly traumatic, but everyone is okay. She was playing at recess and collided with Phillip (we are glad you are okay!), knocking out her two top front teeth. Thankfully they were her baby teeth and had been slightly loose anyway. She is having some troubles talking without lisping or whistling and was definitely sore this afternoon, but all in all she is doing well. Aunt Cari, the dentist, took a look and said she looks fine...we will just have to watch her permanent teeth as they come in. Everyone was pretty amazed at how brave she tears until she was home with me. Mostly she was worried about how she was going to look. Poor kid...although she was told the tooth fairy should be very nice to her. Any predictions on what the tooth fairy is gonna bring?!? :)

One more for tonight...

This is my new favorite picture of Colin. It shows just what a happy boy he usually is! Besides, how can you NOT love those chubby cheeks?! :)

Colin's new trick

Colin just started holding his own bottle. I love when my kids start doing this only because I hate having my hands occupied. I don't know...I just love when they can start feeding themselves! :)

Oh boy...

Okay, so let me just say that I seriously love this girl, but sheesh...somedays she makes me crazy. Her bedtime somehow got out of wack this week and she was refusing to go to bed. Saturday night it was almost 10:00 before she finally gave up and fell asleep. We worry about her only because when she gets an idea in her head, she is going to do excatly what she wants to...and there is little stopping her! This picture is just her attitude showing through. She was saying "NO! Don't take my picture, mommy!" It's gonna be an interesting ride with this one!

Rover Joe

After weeks and weeks of wondering when Rover Joe (the Kindergarten mascot) was coming to our house for a weekend, he finally made it here! Each child in Lydia's class gets to take Rover Joe home for a weekend and then write in a journal the adventures they have with him. I think that Lydia was starting to get anxious that Mrs. Wilson was never going to draw her name out for her turn! She even told me that Mrs. Wilson draws the sticks (with the names on them) from the middle so during playtime she would find her stick and move it to the middle. I am proud of the keen observation, but not so much about her stacking the deck in her favor. :) Anyway, Rover Joe spent time playing outside, made the weekly trip to Hardee's on Saturday morning and even watched the Duke basketball game. Who knew he was a fan! :) It was a great weekend and now Lydia can stop stressing out about it!

So this is one of Erynn's classmates playing outside at school. It was one of the few nice days we have had around here this Spring.
