best of 2011--APRIL vol. one

 A new egg coloring eggs colored with crayons. The crayon melts from the worked really well. The hot eggs were a bit hard to handle, but we would do it again!!

 Sunday afternoon nap...I had been dealing with Benjamin and she was crying, but by the time I got to her this is what I found. :( I felt so sad that she had cried herself to sleep...after snapping a pic, I picked her up and cuddled her before putting her back down to sleep.
 My chunky cutie!
 teeheehee...I just love chunky babies in bikinis...and the ruffle butt makes it even cuter!
 Noah perfecting his headstand!
 Benjamin attempting to copycat Noah's headstanding abilities! ;)
Just a happy girl in the morning!
 Can you believe this was April? We had some warm days in April and it gives me hope that our warm weather is just around the corner(though I would like to mention for every warm April day, I believe we had 2 cold May days!)
 Another warm April pic! I wish I had gotten a better pic of them in these outfits! I love these colors!
 Even sleeping she is beautiful(she doesn't get that from her mama!)
 Silly Noah...trying to escape the picture, but I got him anyway!
 Rice play is very good for tactile kids like Benjamin. I think he would play in rice for hours!!
 Time to start getting rid of the baby chubs! ;-) Pushups today, jumping jacks tomorrow!
 Time for some girly toys, perhaps?

 I took a series of pictures one evening of the boys just doing goofy stuff! Can't wait to scrapbook these!

 This is an awesome picture!
 Little bit goofy, maybe?
Snuggles with my middle child! :-)

best of 2011--MARCH vol. two

One of the highlights of March was spring break for Noah and we took a trip to
Cosi with our friends, Joshua and Mary(Joshua's Grammy). My mom was also here for the trip. Below are the pictures that I never managed to get blogged!

This is pretty much how it'd go if these two were news anchors!

These two have been buds a LONG time!

best of 2011--MARCH vol. one

Whew! We had a busy March! In no particular order, this is volume one of some of the pictures that didn't get blogged! Also, noteworthy and blogged are Noah's birthday, no more training wheels, and of course, this ultimate cuteness! ♥

We visited my Dad to help him when he broke his foot. We stayed with my best friend from high school, Deanna. The kids loved her and Emileigh and there is Taz in the pic!
If you know Benjamin, you know he HAS to have something to sleep with...we tried so many different animals and Woody won!
Grace really took to Deanna...but can you blame her. Deanna rocked her, talked to her, loved on her constantly!
My twins...born 5 years apart!
Granny visited us in March too! Love Benjamin's face in this one!

Benjamin burned his hand pretty bad in March...much the same as his broken finger, we aren't really sure how! My mom was here watching them and I was at work. She had just stoked the fire and went to get Grace who had crawled into the kitchen. Gone for one second and we think Benjamin grabbed the fire poker. She felt horrible, but it wasn't her fault at all. Benjamin knew not to touch it, I'm sure he just decided to test the limits at a bad time!

I got home from work pretty much right after it happened. He was hysterical and cried and cried for so long. :(
See, he didn't blame Granny! She made them those cute horses too!
oops! A little out of order! More from our trip to SC.
Emileigh with one of her birds!
So tired!

Benjamin loves Grace! I love how he is gripping her so tight!

And Grace is done wit the death grip hold! ;)

And this is what we mean by Benjamin is hot or cold! Happy one minute, but when things don't go his way...LOOK OUT! We continue to work on this area!
Just a sweet picture of a sweet girl!
