The First Track Meet of the Year....

This is Kayla's first year of being able to to track. She participated in the 100 meter, 400 meter and the long jump. She had a great time except during the 400, she was not anticipating the burring of her lungs and that gave her a good scare, but she kept going and placed 2nd.

The Big Weekend....

On Saturday my friend, Jennifer and I did the March of Dimes March for Babies in Salem. It was a 10k, but we didn't notice a few arrows and walked an extra 10 blocks. Oh well, we love those babies, we wanted to give our all to them! :)

Next, was Kayla's super secret, surprise sleepover 10th birthday party! (yes, that is a mouth full! )
Surprise, surprise, surprise!

One happy girl!

Pizza time!

Ahh, the BIG gift, much anticipated and much loved!

Everyone up, happy, alert and ready to go. I on the other hand only had 3 1/2 hours sleep, was tired, cranky, and in need of endless coffee and a nap!

LOL take two...

Looks like Barbie jumped on the bang wagon too!

I see absolutely NO resemblance! Just looks like any other Barbie and Ken doll, I wonder if this means they are back together? ;)

I would so be embarrassed if I was Rob!

The Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm.....

I think the photos explain it all. Kami was in heaven....all those flowers to smell, taste, and pick. Even if picking was a BIG no-no! Oops! Kori had a hard time, I think she may be suffering from allergies...not a good place to figure that out. Oops again! Kayla was soon bored with only seeing flower after flower, after flower and was disappointed that there were no blue tulips to be found....yes oops again, again. Kade found in fun to hide among the tulips, but soon sat on some, so that gave us another oops again, again, again, again? Now I have lost count! Over all it was a fun after school trip, hot, but fun. I hope we can do it year.

Happy Earth Day!

A tiskit a tasket...check out my baskets....

I decided to make the kids new Easter Baskets this year. I know, I know this post should have been weeks ago, but I must remind you I was in a allergy/drug induced coma and unable to do anything other then trudge thur the most minimal events of everyday life! But, the night before Easter, I whipped put my glue gun and went to work!
So, with the help of a lot of caffeine, my glue gun, some ribbon and a few scrap-book letters, new Easter Baskets emerged!
Each with their own little look....
And personalized, so there was no confusion in the morning....
I added in some Easter flair.....

here and there....

I really liked how they turned out.... I think next time we will make some for craft supplies.

Easter...and it was on the 12th!

So, you know what that means...12 on 12! Easter was not that eventful at our house this year, I was still recovering from my allergic reaction and the comatose effect the meds had on me. But we made it to church all dressed in our Sunday best and my parent's took the older two up to my aunt and uncle's.

1. Kori loved being the Easter Bunny!
2. The kid's Easter baskets all lined in a row.
3. What's Easter with out the jelly beans....and the sugar rush!
4. Kami helping Kori get her ears straight.
5. Our yummy Honey Bunny from Great Harvest, made of scrumptious honey wheat bread.
6. Ok, what can I say, the ears were a big hit in our house!
7. Ah, the dreaded group pic, I do try, but getting all four to look in the same direction and smile happily, it never happens.
8. Kami, in my shoes, of course!
9. Kayla
10. Kori
11. Some of the eggs the kids decorated.
12. One of my favorite parts of Easter, new outfits, all the way down to the shoes....I even got new shoes this year! :)
