easter eggs

we colored our easter eggs this morning. it was fun, but messy. the kids are anxious for the easter bunny to come. he actually comes to our house tonight, (so that we can focus on the true meaning of easter on sunday. ) it also makes it easier to get ready for church.

St. Patty's Day

this is the first year i have actually celebrated st. patrick's day. we all dressed in green so we wouldn't get pinched. we had green jello, green applesauce, green beans, and shamrock shaped grilled cheese sandwiches, and green rice crispy treats. the kids loved it, so i think it will become tradition. we're not irish, but it was fun!

skiing for the first time

kaylee was a little hesitant to start the day, but she can't hide her excitement.
andrew getting ready to start out for a day of skiing.

jeff even had a good time (although he won't admit it. )

kaylee surprised us all and apparently was quite a natural. look at that snowplow!

andrew in action! he did so good for a kid who is only 4!

the gang taking a little break

don't you love the hair? he looks like a true ski bum!

kaylee decided she loved skiing, even though she had basicially made up her mind before they went that she wasn't going to. She was the last one to want to leave.

Trash Digger

This is my little trash digger. I ate a pudding and then I put it in the trash. Will made the delicious discovery and as you can see, he licked it clean. Now I just need to search the house to see where else he may have gotten it.

Well we finally jumped on the band-wagon. I have enjoyed looking at my friends and family blogs so much, that why not do my own. No guarantees as to how often I will keep it up, it seems life is already busy. But it will still be fun anyway. Maybe it will be motivation to take pictures more often, and maybe write down some of the funny things in our lives.

The kiddos

Kaylee (8) playing baketball this year. She improved so much, and is showing promise of becoming a great player. She's got her dad's long skinny arms, which are great for defense.

Andrew (4) playing with his knights' castle. He is such a character, never a normal smile in any of his pictures.

Will (21 months) we think he has a serious problem!
