New Favorite Hobby

It just amazes me how far things have come since I was a kid. I love that I can let the kids paint in my living room floor and not have to worry about what else they may paint other than their paper! We love all of the Crayola Color Wonder's products, and the kids do too! Here are a few pix of them enjoying their new favorite hobby! :) Enjoy!
Can't you just see the mischief!!

Slippin' Slidin'

Well, my babies have finally learned how to slip and slide on their own!!
Before this year when we would set out the slippin' slide, we would have to take turns throwing them down the slide! (a total back-breaker)
They are getting so big and it just amazes me each and every day that these little angels are a part of me!
They can be so sweet sometimes and then when they aren't being sweet, the faces when they're mad makes me smile even more! I love them so much!

Catching Up... Part 2

Okay, so here's part two...
Me, Madison, Chandler, Maddie, My brother Andy, his wife Beth, their two kids, Kylie and Lexi, and My mother and my nephew Noah all took a trip to Disney World!!

This is Me, My brother and My two nieces Kylie and Lexi

This is When We First Arrived (BEFORE)

Well, lets just put it this way, the oldest child there was Chandler and he's only four... WE WON'T GO BACK UNTIL THEY'RE 10!!!

This was right before we left..(AFTER)

It was 95 degrees and 100% humidity! FUN FUN! Madison said it should have been considered child abuse taking them there in that kind of heat... but we did it, and we had fun! But we were very glad to go back to the condo and relax in some A/C. Maddie went to sleep at 4pm and slept until 8:30am the next morning!

Anyways, We did have a really good time and after a few days at Disney, Madison and I took the kids over to the beach for a couple of days and we really enjoyed it as well. Maddie the Movie Star

Already going thru the "i'm too embarrassed to be seen in public with my family stage" :)My Little Angel Napping...
Well, I guess that's enough for now.. it's hard to pick just a few pictures to show everyone but I think I summed it up pretty well. We cannot wait to go back to the beach with the kids, they had more fun there than anywhere else we went!

Catching Up... Part 1

This is exactly why I never blog... i'm too busy... now I have a million things to blog about and don't know where to start...

Okay so I guess i'll break this up into segments.

We took the kids to the park at trenton to play one Saturday and they had the best time ever! And I was able to get some cute pix of them having fun, too!

My Chandler just graduated from his class at daycare so he will be starting pre-K this fall.... (tear) (tear)

And Maddie will be graduating to the "big class" this fall as well... i'm so not ready for all these transitions!!

I had the most lovely Mother's day! My mom came in town and we all went to church together and took some pictures of our four generations...i'm so blessed! I love my mother to death, she's my best friend!!

Well that's a wrap for part 1, hopefully I can get the rest of the stuff up tomorrow.. the whole disney trip/beach trip/hangin out at the river and so on and so on....
