In an attempt to make up for my serious lapse in blogging fun, I've decided to inundate you with pictures. The first three are of my sweet baby girl. She wanted me to take her picture next to "Cindallella", as A calls it. While she posed she tried to give me her: Angry Face
Her sad face:
And her Happy Face. Do you see the difference? 'Cause I'm a bit puzzled, lol.
As part of our Valentine's date my hubby and I went to the Spaghetti Factory. In the parking lot I saw something I HAD to take a pic of for my boys. Methinks there are others that would enjoy it too :)
There's a little "board" filled with M&M's characters. On this you put one small candy (my bro used marshmallows) on each box.
One person goes away from the board while another picks which character will be Pete. Then the first guy comes back and begins taking one candy at a time in the hopes of clearing the board without picking Pete. If he/she picks Pete, the rest of the group yells out "Don't Eat Pete!" It's hilarious when you get my brother involved.
Here's the finished map. (And yes, I realize the picture is upside down.)
He had them running upstairs and down, doing jumping jacks, running around the couch.
And then opening presents :)
Here are the kids "helping" to put the race track together.
Those who couldn't wait to have some fun popped over to launch the Buzz Rocket.
Even the littlest managed to catch some air!
Later in the week our little family celebrated our D's birthday. It's always bittersweet, and I've thought more than once about stopping, but for now the kids seem to really enjoy it.
