Fathers and Flapjacks at YW












Fathers and Flapjacks was a hit at yw Wed night! Pancakes and sausage for dinner started the evening and then we took the games outside. Relays with cardboard pancakes on spatulas, water from syrup bottles being squirted on flapjack fathers' faces and feeding dad's nilla wafers were among the big events.

I'm done with Preschool




On the last day of preschool, the kids did a circus for the parents! Austin is a tiger and is the blur jumping through the ring of fire and then he is the strong man with some air bag muscles stuffed up his shirt!

Blond to brunette, honor band, wii and new baby


So Whitney is going to honor band tomorrow playing her oboe! It's a big honor and she's excited.
Braden wants me to let everyone know he's a professional playing tennis on the wii!
Austin went to the dr. for an ear infection this week. While there, the dr. listened to Austin's heart and tummy with a stethascope. Suddenly wide-eyed Austin asked the dr., "What's in my stomach?" The Dr. answered by asking, "Did you eat breakfast? Probably your breakfast" Dr. walked out and Austin whispered, "Mommy, is there a baby in my stomach?" I believe this question is based on the fact that we went and saw Marley and Me where the Dr. in the movie was listening to the baby's heart beat in her stomach with a stethascope.
Also,...my hair is now dark brown!

My Little Sweetheart!

Have you ever had a sweetheart who carved your name in a tree? Well...I felt really lucky today when my little 5 year old asked for help with etching a heart into a tree at the park. After telling him that the twig he was trying to carve with wouldn't do the trick, I asked him why he wanted a heart. He answered, "It's for me and you, Mommy!" I'm not sure where he learned about this stunt, but five years of mischief and mishaps were all washed away with my melting heart.
