The Joys of Motherhood

Just wanted to share some special moments all the kids have had in the last few days. This is such a good pay off for some of the things us mothers have to deal with on a day to day basis. First off is Anthony. He is getting so big and I can't believe he is starting kindergardon in a few weeks. He has been trying so hard at riding a two wheeler and all his work finally has paid off! With a few scrapes and bruises, he has now gotten the hang of it. He is so proud of himself and we are so proud of him. His favirote thing to do is brake really fast so the back wheel skids and leaves a black mark. I have to remind him how he begged and pleaded to have Jr put his training wheels back on when he was having a hard time with just two wheels. Now you can't stop him!

Now, Lynndi is such a girly girl and loves to wear dresses and have her nails and hair done. Recently while de-junking I found a little purse that came with lipgloss. I thought that would be a cute little something special for her so I gave it to her. She went crazy! She wanted to try every color (there were 4) and didn't let her purse go out of sight. She doesn't quite no that you are just supposed to put it on your lips, put she sure doesn't mind practicing!

Sweet little Miranda is growing up so fast. She is such a daddy's girl and there are no complaints about that from dad! She had her first experience with baby food the other day, and suprisingly hated it! Although it made for great pictures, she spitted every single little bite I gave her out. All she wanted to do is chew on the spoon. She even started litteraly spitting anytime I put some in her mouth, getting it all over! We'll have to try again and get her liking food. She did however love saltine crackers I gave to her at my mom's, so maybe there is hope.

Remodel, Remodel, Remodel

Hey all! So I finally have started a family blog! I hope all you enjoy the updates of our crazy life. So, for the past 3 months all we have been doing is our kitchen remodel. Fun huh? We gutted our kitchen so for months we have been living on barbebue and microwaved food. We have done all of it ourselves, ( with the help of our dear mentor Dave!) so the process has been somewhat slow. But now that it is done I LOVE IT!!!! What a change it has made! I have been so impressed at how much Jr knows from plumbing to tiling, to everything in between. I do have a handy man that is for sure! I have included some before and after shots so you can see how far we've come.
