A quick update

We had a ton of company the last week and we miss them a lot! So now that it is just us again, It's game on! Jared is getting ready for finals and studying away as usual. He is doing great and looking forward to this being his last year in a class room! After finals he will start studying for the boards and then take them the end of June. Avery is so much fun! She still likes to dress up and play with her beloved "polish" (that is the name she gave her doll) She is still into art and anything to do with crafts. She loves to sit and help me make bows. Lincoln is a mess!! He loves to kick,throw,and jump off everything! He knows when he is in trouble because he will come over and give me a hug and kiss my arm:) How do you get mad at that?! He talks all the time and can now carry on a small conversation with you, which are turning out to be pretty interesting. I am still making bows and trying to keep up with Ave and Linc. We are enjoying the beautiful things DC has to offer in the spring,like the cherry blossoms. We are all looking forward to our beach trips this summer and going to the pool:)


Last Thursday the weather was sooo nice. We spent the whole day outside, we walked all around looking at all the flowers and everything that comes with spring. Then we met our friends at the park for some more fun. When we got home it was time for some sidewalk chalk to brighten things up in our court yard! Needless to say, we had no problem with the kids falling asleep that night.

Where Are You Summer?????

It's killing the kids being back in the cold. They had so much fun in the warm weather and swimming. Poor Avery keeps looking out the back sliding door saying,"But the sun is out?????" I just love her!!

Oh Yeah, Easter

So we were driving home from Florida and arrived in North Carolina at Aunt Kathys Saturday night. Totally spaced Easter!!! So ya, mother of the year right here. Thank goodness Aunt Kathy had an egg hunt all ready with tons of candy and swiss chocolate for me!!! Woo Hoo!!! Avery was Princess Arora A.K.A. Sleeping Beauty for the big hunt. Jared is Missing in action as he and Richard were, I'm sure, solving the worlds problems together. Kathy also bought this nemo cupcake that had like 2 pounds of frosting on it for the kids. Of course they loved it!! Thanks Aunt Kathy and Uncle Richard!!!

Mitch The Monkey

So I bought this cute pattern a while ago so I could finally use my new sewing machine. This is my first project and thank goodness my mom was here to help me!! So after a few un-pickings and a lot of rice and stuffing later, Mitch the monkey was done!! Not to shabby if I do say so myself. Now to make a lamb and a cute mouse.

Spring Break 2008

We had the best time ever!!! The kids had such a great time, and I have to admit it was nice to have family there to take the kids!!!!! Thank you Grandma and Papa!!!!
