Gingerbread House

Our first attempt at decorating a gingerbread house. It might not look like the picture we wanted it to look like but, in a mommy's eyes it's PERFECT. Spike was just so excited to be doing this. Al throughout the process he kept saying, "Mommy, this is so fun!" and. "I'm having so much fun doing this, Mommy!" It made it all worthwhile.

We even talked daddy into helping!

The finished product!

Ok, so it's not totally complete until the vehicle is parked in front!!!!!!

Mommy's Handsome Boys!

Here's Spike and Slick, as Pastor Paul calls them, on our way to church this past Sunday morning. They like to have their hair done on Sundays and Spike has to make sure to see Pastor Paul to show him his SPIKE!

Wisconsin Day 2- Off to the horse farm!

Uh-Oh's not to sure of the horses!

But he sure liked the puppy, Anne!

This is how close Spike came,
He was WAY more interested in...

Wisconsin Day 1

Here's what we did on the first day of our trip to Wisconsin!
We had lunch in the park and then Grandma Vawter let us feed the ducks. There sure were a lot of duck! It was really fun!

"You can have the food, but don't you DARE take my truck!"

"Here ducky, you can have my cheese curl!"

A little boy after mommy's heart!

Spike and I had a few minutes while brother was still napping today. We decided to make a batch of cookies. Such a fun time for me. Of course, the kitchen is a big mess when we're through, bit it's worth it!

And of course you can't make cookies with out sampling the batter!

To Infinity And BEYOND!

That's right! Buzz Lightyear himself was in town tonight! And we had the pleasure to meet him in person! The boys just loved it! Didn't get much dinner eaten because they were just too busy watching him! Such a fun time for them!

Busy, busy day!

Community Day in town brought some fun activities today. We went to the parade. That was exciting for the kids.
Spike, obviously enjoying the parade!

Take notice to Tuff's sunglasses here!

Now look at them. It was so hot, that they "sweated" right down his nose. They are resting on his lip! Didn't seem to bother him though, he just kept right on watching.

After the parade, we went home to swim for a while. Spike has been asking to swim since we closed the pool last fall. It was fun to get in there again and I'm planning to be in everyday from now until September. They both loved it and wanted to stay in! Of course, I didn't get pictures of that today, so we'll save that for another day!

After swimming for a while, we grabbed a bite to eat then went back to the Community Day to catch firework show! Ben and I enjoyed it, but the is how Spike spent the evening!That is until he fell FAST ASLEEP! Snoring even!

Tuff was very relaxed and seemed to enjoy them!

Over all, a FUN day for all!

The boys...

Life is ever so exciting, and then you throw in three boys and three ice cream sundaes... We went to Friendly's tonight while mommy was out with her girlfriends from church. It is amazing that we made it out with only a little chocolate on our faces...
We are enjoying very nice spring weather this last week, with temperatures in the high 70/low 80's. The boys and Shannan have been living out in the driveway watching our neighbors' addition going up... Hope you all are enjoying your spring as well...

Elmo is the only one willing to ride along these days! Look out, only 13 more years and he'll be on the road! OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!

This is it for Tuff. We don't want any more broken bones for a VERY LONG time!

Singing with a mouth full of food...

I could barely contain myself when "Spike" broke out into song at the dinner table tonight with his mouth full of toast! He is singing his rendition of "Zaccheus". Enjoy!!!

Candid moments at the dinner table! This is "Tuff" after eating a bowl of oranges(hence the drool) saying "cheese". He is always this happy, especially when he thinks he is going to be going to Aunt Kelli's house!!!

Captain Underpants!

Shannan sent "Spike" up to get a new pair of underpants this afternoon, and this is what he came downstairs with... I guess he thought his underpants would make a good hat... 'nuf said...

More Mommy time anyone?

My kids have been adjusting well to my extra hours at work these past two weeks. I think tonight, they'd had enough. This was taken at 11:00 tonight. I couldn't tell you the last time my kids were not in their beds at that time of night. Spike is out cold. I was still trying to get Tuff to settle down when daddy took the picture. He was just playing right beside me like this for about an hour. Tuff was in bed until I went to put Spike down. He woke up and that was the beginning of a very long two hour struggle. When Tuff got up, Spike thought he needed to be up too. The rest is history!
Between extra hours at work, Dr appointments, regular commitments and everyday life, my time with the kids has been lacking the quality they need. Overall, they've been very flexible, I just think tonight was their limit. If I would hold one, the other would cry and back and forth we went. Who can blame them? I am feeling the same way. Thankfully daddy doesn't have to work tomorrow so we are planning to do some family things and hopefully this will help us all! They are in bed and asleep as I write this and hopefully will be there for the remainder of the night. That's where I'm headed too! Good night to all!
