Spring program/carnival highlights

Hey mom I think I got this cup thing down

Roe rescued Tally and Snowflake her playdate kittens from Saylor, since I refuse to have any fake or real feline, of course she chose the kitten face paint as well.

Roe and Claire show off their face painting

Aroma of heaven

1 John
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world-the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.

I love to brag about our church, is that bad? Great music, people and talks. God I am so humbled by this verse in John. I am so guilty of being way too worldly. Today Mr.Sturm gave a great talk about aroma of or into heaven, cant remember for sure, but I will link it when it becomes avail. He gave some great examples of experiences we have that are a hint of what heaven will be like. Did I mention we had homemade cinnamon rolls too, when I get the recipe I will share.

Future daughter n law

I am always picking out mates for my kids, I know that is really weird. I've always thought Xander will make the best husband someday, he is so loving and sincere.

Jude may surpass, here I caught him feeding cheerios to Sophia, that is my kind of boy the one who shares his food.

Future diver

Xander had his last swimming lesson tonite and jumped off the diving board and swam to the side with no life jacket, got some footage, of course. This is huge for him, he hasn't exactly been my daredevil, I am sure a lot of it is his overprotective mother.


Toddler Girls' Circo® Keely Floral Peep-Toe Wedges - White
Had to get these shoes today from target for Roe, not that she needs shoes, but they are super cute, 9.99, and the name of the style is Keely. Is my name all the sudden popular now that I am 30? I never had a Keely key chain when I was a kid.

Good night, sleep tight?

I finally figured out what the good night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite means. Where exactly do I fit in here?

Lollipop land

I haven't mastered the background changing yet, but I thought this was kind of fun. Roe had her dance pictures and thought it would be cute to close her eyes and stick out her chest, yeah I think they wil turn out really nice.

Crunch time

Just 2 weeks until Monroe's dance recital and I was noticing yesterday at dance we've got some serious practicing to do. She agreed to practice as long as she could be Kendal and I was Hannah, notice how she isn't very patient with me, sooo surprising. Oh and this wouldn't be her dance costume its actually her halloween costume.

Some fabulous friends, the Snowdens, who on a side note need a blog to show off their beautiful children (no pressure), invited us over for a wine tasting. If you haven't ever participated it was super fun. Mandy had appetizer/dessert that complemented each wine. We actually loved most of them, but the wine winner of the night for the Says was

Word of the day- DOGGIES

Jude weighed in at 20#10oz and was 29.75 in tall at his 1 yr appt today. After discussing immunizations in depth with his ped he got 3 shots today and then proceeded to eat his bandaids off his legs. He has extended his vocab to include "doggies" "this" and "that" the last few days.

Weekend projects

Eating out

three amigos

posing outside famous daves

Roe passed out on the bar, no alcohol needed.
My parents visited last weekend and they love to eat out. The only problem is they live in Chicago and can choose from several restaurants, not so much around here, especially with kids. Food wasn't all that great, but sadly worth not having to cook or clean up after, and of course we had fun.

Cake fun

After swimming last nite, we treated Jude to Chipotle, a family favorite, and had a baby cake for him. We let he and the kids dive in, no utensils necassary. Im not sure who enjoyed it the most, it made me sick just watching. After his face, body and hair was covered with blue frosting, we headed for a bath another favorite. While I had him in the tub, Xander and Roe brought up there own cake creation with a candle in it pictured above, now I am definitely sick. They were so proud of this mushed up masterpiece and serenaded Jude once again singing Happy birthday.
