That was strange. . ..

Had grand intentions of updating this pathetic blog today, until our whole house shook. Tremors from an earthquake in Virginia! So, in the midst of all the chaos and uncertainty the kids had a huge mess of toys out, my pictures weren't posting correctly, and I had forgotten to start my crock-pot dinner! So, this is my update, short, sweet and to the point!

Ezekiel's 3rd Birthday (April 2, 2011)

Brotherly Love

Zeke adores Silas, but they do NOT usually play well together! They have their moments, but they are few and far between. Hoping one day these two will be each other protectors, rather than instigators!

This is a rare sight in our house!


This is what happens when you have a big sister. . . .

School Days

Zeke practicing his "letters."

He was very excited he figured out a word he was sounding out-I just happened to capture his expression.


She really isn't this miserable looking all the time. . .

But she does get rather intent on her work.

When you get a haircut. . . .


All Ready To Go!

Zeke is extremely cooperative during his haircuts.
Silas used to scream and cry during his haircuts at this age!
Glad we aren't fighting that battle again.

Bathtime after his haircut. . .

Looking good little man!

Time Well Spent

Matt was away for an Winter over-nighter with our teens at the beginning of February. It was an all-nighter and tubing event, so we both decided it didn't make sense for our whole family to attempt that together! My mom was willing to drive down from PA to keep me company and help me keep my sanity. We had a crazy but enjoyable time with the kids, and my mom and I even managed to sneak in a BBC chick-flick after the kids went to bed. . .accompanied by icecream of course. We had a good time together!

Cuddling with Mom-Mom on Dad's comfy recliner

Getting ready to make and decorate sugar cookies for Valentine's Day. I told my mom I would NOT have attempted this chaos of 3 small children gathered around one cooking area without an extra pair of hands. So . . . she took pictures and laughed A LOT!

Zeke and flour--NOT the greatest combination in the world!

Everyone loves licking the beaters

She looks like she is in PAIN!
This picture makes me laugh--Ezekiel looks just as concerned as I do!

First batch out of the oven


Now, on to the decorating. . .mom braved helping little man

He actually did pretty well. . .

SO proud of his cookie!
Meticulously placing one sprinkle at a time
