Easter 2011

The guys dying eggs Saturday night.

The boys work up around 7am Easter morning to find that the Easter bunny had left eggs in the backyard.

Brodie was the first to find his basket.

The boys getting ready to go fill their bags with Easter eggs.

Emily all bundled up and ready to head outside to watch her brothers.
Here she is later at Grandma and Grandpa's in her Easter dress. Jake and Emily playing. She loves when her brothers play with her.

Brodie and Drew are both playing T-ball this year. Thankfully they are on the same team. We have played 2 games and so far they really like it. Drew accidentally ran to third base instead of first base one time, but other than that they have done great. They both run for the ball when it is hit.

They play for the Cubs. Drew is #3 and Brodie is #6. Hopefully the weather warms up again before we have our next game.

Almost There

Emily is doing her best at trying to roll over. She gets clear up on one side.
But then always gets stuck on that darn shoulder.
So then she will try and turn the other way. Maybe it will work then. Nope. Well at least she is having fun trying!

First Phone Call

Brodie decided to write his phone number down and give it to one of his pre-school friends. I thought it was pretty funny when the little boy actually called (I didn't think he would). This was his first time talking to someone other than a family member. They talked for about 5 minutes, mostly about Yogi Bear the movie!

New Carpet

Just thought I would throw in a some pictures of our new carpet. We are really enjoying it. If you have been in our house you would remember how awful our old carpet was. It was here when we moved in and after 10 years and 5 children it was in pretty bad shape.

This is a picture of the night before it was installed. We let the kids enjoy dinner on the old carpet. New carpet = new rules. NO food or shoes allowed! Here is the pretty hardwood floor that was underneath. Some day I would love to have just the hardwood, but it isn't very practical for us right now.The squishy blue padding. And behold, fresh, clean carpet!So far we have made it almost 2 weeks without anything spilled. Just a few spots of spit up courtesy of Emily Joy.

First Track Meet

We kicked off the track season last night. It was a chilly evening for running. Jake ran in the 4x800, his team came in last :( and he also ran the mile. He ended up placing 12th out of 24 runners for the mile. It was hard watching all those kids run in the chilly weather.

This is just the beginning of the season though. We have 10 more meets left. Looking forward to seeing the kids improve.
