I Heart Faces- Pout

Meeting Margie Sue

This weekend Ava and I went to meet Margie Sue for the first time, but first we watched Geogia's LA on Broadway show. Here she is! She did a great job!
These aren't the best pictures, but here are the girls in their new big sister Tee's Ava and I made them.

Beautiful Margie Sue! I didn't get a great shot because my batteries were running on very low batteries. This always makes my pictures come out fuzzy. I was also interupting her sleep, so she doesn't look to pleased that I was trying to snap her picture.

Here's another one of Georgia! You did a great job! Ava and I loved watching your performance!

Window Shots

Here are the kids discovering me in the window.....

as I was snapping pictures of them playing outside.

Candid Shots Outside

Hello Everybody! We started our Saturday morning at the doctors office. Brendan has been sick with a cold and last night it turned into asthma and weezing, so now he is on a nebulizer and an antibiotic for an ear infection, but it was so gorgeous out today that I thought the fresh air could only benefit him, so Paul spent some time outside with the kids this afternoon.
Brendan loves to push arouns this toy shopping cart!

More Playground Pictures

I like this picture, but it came out blurry, (that is why I have it in black and white-to mask some of the blurriness) but his expression is so cute!

Ava with that bunny.


This morning, after church we went to the playground for the first time this year. Brendan had so much fun! Here they are playing on a leftover snowbank. I guess that they are getting in their last snow play of the year. (hopefully!)
Brendan just loved the wide open spaces! We have a small backyard, so all of this space is new to him!

A little girl had her pet bunny at the park getting some sunshine. Ava gave the bunny, named Jellybean a lot of attention!

A new tire swing!



I found a lot of great printout activities at crayola.com yesterday! We printed out a stack and got busy. Look at all we made, and we still have a more to do today!

Ice Hills

A few days ago we had very high winds and the wind blew piles of ice up on the shore of the river leaving these ice hills everywhere. It was very neat to see! You can see Paul checking it out.
Nature's Art!

I thought it was very neat how they ended up in these neat piles. Very Cool! Apparently this doesn't happen very often so i'm glad we were able to see it!

Monday, March 9, 2009


Yesterday was beautiful. It felt great spent some time outdoors and we took a nice walk in the sunshine. The only downside of our walk was when Brendan fell in a mud puddle, but he didn't seem to mind!
Its great to be swinging again!

The river opened up without the help of the icebreaker! The windmills are up on Wolfe Island! If everything goes as planned they will soon on this side of the river as well!

Poor Brendan covered in mud! Below you can see him hurrying home to get some fresh pants!
