Playing With Mommy's Camera

Yesterday my sister posted random pictures of her kids. The ones of Avery were some that she had taken of herself when she saw her mommy's camera just lying there. Well....last night when I was putting pictures on the computer I saw that Ashlyn had done the same thing. We always knew that Ashlyn and Avery are two peas in a pod but good gracious....they even do the same sneaky things when they're apart. :) Here are some pictures Ash took of herself and if you want to see Avery's you can visit my sister's blog by clicking here and scroll down to her Feb. 27th entry!

I don't know where she got the double chin from! : )

Clifford at the Book Fair

Last night we went to the Book Fair at Roebuck Elementary School. It's always a lot of fun because we get to go in and pick out new books to buy and then go in the gym to have pizza, cupcakes, and drink. Clifford the Big Red Dog made a visit to the Book Fair! He was so nice and stopped to have a picture made with Ashlyn. We then got in line for our food and of course Ashlyn had to have a RED cupcake in honor of Clifford! She pretty much had it from head to toe by the time she was finished eating it. Maybe next time she won't wear khaki pants!! :)

Abe Him Lincoln

Ashlyn was so proud of herself when she got in the car one day last week. She had learned about Abraham Lincoln that day and did a dot to dot of his face. She told me all about it and then said she'd show me the picture. Well...I was a little confused as to why she wrote "Abe Him Lincoln" on her paper. She explained that Mrs. Harris wrote "Abe Lincoln" on the board for them to copy but that she was so smart to remember how to spell "Him" so she could write his whole name all by herself....Abe Him Lincoln! : )

Sunday Afternoon at the Park

The appointment center for Coldwell Banker called today at 12:00 and wanted to schedule an appointment to show our house TODAY between 1:30 and 2:30. If anyone needs any tips on speed cleaning and great places to hide things just call me. : ) I'm a pro! Since we have to take our dog, Karma, with us when they are showing the house we decided to go to the park for a while. We didn't stay too long because the wind was CRAZY! My hair was in my face the entire time! I did manage to snap a few pics though!!

By the way...all of the lights were still on in our house when we got home. The agents always go through and turn the overhead lights off. I don't think the people even came!! :( Oh well!!

Saturday Birthday Fun!!!

Wow! Two birthday parties in one day. Ashlyn was in hog heaven...what more can a child ask for? First we went to Lauren's party at Chuck E. Cheese and then on to my sister's house for Quinn's first birthday party! Quinn loved her cupcake and couldn't seem to get enough. She was just shoveling it in! It was fun watching her with her new toys she got too. If kids would just stay one year old! :) She is so much fun right now and is the happiest baby ever!

We had a great time seeing Amy, Christopher, Chelsea, Lauren, and Caleb at Chuck E. Cheese! We don't get to see them as much as we used to and it's extra special when we can get together.

So...we definitely had a fun day! I hope Lauren and Quinn both have a fantastic year!!

Here is a little slideshow of our day!

Square Dancing in Roebuck

Last week we had a PE program to attend at Roebuck Elementary School. It wasn't anything like I expected it to be. We've been to several programs over the last few years and we have always gone in, taken a seat, and watched. Not this time!! This year just happened to be parent participation year. Thank goodness Morgan and Madyson went with me because we learned to square dance. Well...they all learned to square dance. I'm pretty sure if I asked my knee surgeon he would say no to square dancing!! So, I just stood back and watched as Ashlyn showed us what she has been learning in PE. Here's a picture of Madyson and Ashlyn dancing...

The Queen of Volleyball

I sat and watched Morgan play yesterday at her volleyball tournament and I was just amazed. Amazed that someone in this family, other than Chad, can play some kind of sport!: ) She's really good and this is only her first year. I'm seeing volleyball scholarships in her future.....I hope!! : ) She played about 8 games yesterday and gave it her all each time. I'm so proud of her!!! Here are a few pics of the tournament...
