Mick took me out to breakfast this morning for Valentine's day! It was fun, the kids had a good time and we got to enjoy a nice breakfast before church. Funny thing tho...we walk into church and both kids ask for donuts!!! Um no! We just left Bob Evans!! LOL
Emily in her big girl bed! We got a call today from my sister, that she and her fiance were buying a new bed and wanted to know if we would like their old one for Luke. Of course, we said YES! SOOOOO, we spent the afternoon re-arranging furniture and bedrooms. The crib is now in the attic (yes, I teared up while taking it apart) But, it was short lived, as little miss was soooooo excited for her new-to-her bed! She inherited Luke's old toddler bed, and Luke got a new full size bed!
The pics are out of order....this was her dressed up today....She was a dancing princess! LOVE IT! And, yes, Luke is still wearing his Scooby-Doo football shirt pretty much every day! LOL
Luke and Em in Luke's new bed. He will be getting new bedding, but since this was a surprise to us today, we had to make due with what we had on hand. So...he has a set of mommy and daddy's flannel sheets and a comforter that was mine before Mick and I met! He wants to paint the headboard and foot board this Spring, so I will probably stall on getting new bedding until he chooses his colors. Emily wants a Tinkerbell blanket and pillow for her bed, so I am watching for sales at Joanne's so I can make one for her little bed. FUN, FUN!! Let's see if anyone gets any sleep tonight!
Been awhile since I blogged anything. Sorry, Facebook pretty much took the place of my blog. But, as I was looking thru old posts today, I realized that I missed being able to look back at my life with a click of the mouse. So, here I am updating, and hoping to stay faithful to my blog once again.
We had a wonderful, family filled Christmas, and a quiet New Year's Eve. With the children, of course Christmas was a blast! Emily loved telling everyone that it was Baby Jesus' birthday. That made Mommy's heart melt the whole season. Luke had a great time, helping his sister with all of her new toys and playing with daddy building GeoTrax in the basement. We cleared out an area in the playroom in the basement and made it all GeoTrax, I will post a pic next time, so you can see it! It is awesome!! We got to spend alot of time with my brother and his fiance who were here for 2 weeks over Christmas, the kids had a great time with Uncle Mike and Aunt Kristen!
Em and Uncle Mike
Uncle Mike and Luke showing off their muscles!
Emily playing with her baby doll (new Christmas toys!!) She was putting make-up on her baby!
Luke, playing football with daddy. How big is he getting??!! I know. My 4 year old is amazing and fun and loves his daddy right now! Makes mommy jealous, but I know it makes daddy feel great!
Emily at her cousin's birthday party tonight. Drew turned 3!!!!
Emily in her boots this morning...love this!!!!
Luke and Emily playing "sleigh rides" with an end table turned upside down...
Since we are back from "the sick", life is going better! After my last post, I ended up in the hospital for a few hours with breathing problems, and severe nausea. After I was all better, Emily came down with it and Mick got it again! It was a complete mess in my house for 2 weeks! It was the longest 2 weeks of my life!
The kids had a blast on Halloween, I will post those pics next. Emily was Minnie Mouse and Luke was Spiderman. They got tons of candy and were on sugar hi's for like 10 days! Life is back to normal here, I was back to Jazzercise this week, went to Beth Moore with my gal pals last weekend, had my mom's b-day party on Wednesday and then our nephew's party tonight. Mick and I teach Sunday school tomorrow, so that will be fun! Nothing too exciting, although we are in the midst of planning a super cool birthday party for a pretty neat 4 year old that lives here! ;0)
