A future teacher maybe??

Hmmm, will she follow in my footsteps?  Unfortunately Will isn't paying a bit of attention to the story!

Will loves to play basketball

Will's new favorite thing to do is play basketball. Every time we are outside, he grabs a ball and practices dribbling and shooting.  He really is starting to get pretty good.  I think I am seeing the NBA in his future!  (Although he does need to grow several more feet!)  **Check out Will's new haircut**

Check out the perfect hand positions!

So I had to throw in a picture of Reese and Olivia since it has been forever since my last blog post!

This picture of Olivia was over the weekend when we had the kite out.  It was extremely windy - I am surprised that Olivia didn't fly away with the kite!

Say Cheese.........or not!

Do you know how hard it is to get a good Easter picture of 3 children?  Yeah, let me tell you that it is not easy.  Olivia did a good job for the most part (unless she was getting frustrated with her brother and sister)!  Reese wanted to cry or pout and Will didn't want to look at the camera. Below are some of the winners of today's pictures!

Good Pictures
(Unfortunately none of Will!)

Not so good pictures!

Don't you just love the look on Reese's face? Well, I guess there is always next year! Happy Easter everyone.

Bunny House

You know bunny house don't you?

What, you mean to tell me you have no idea what I am talking about?

Well, all day long Will would say over and over, "Bunny House?".   I'd ask him if he thought we were going to the Easter Bunny's house or if the bunnies were outside in our backyard (we have 2 resident bunnies that seem to love our backyard).  The answer would always be no with a huff and puff because I didn't know what he was talking about.  We had talked to the kids about going to an Easter egg hunt this afternoon and so I thought he was talking about that, but still no dice.  I have since given up even though he still talked all evening about bunny house. 

I'm clueless!!

Anyway, we did go to an egg hunt at Olivia's school this afternoon.  It was a fun 30 minutes of kids running around crazy trying to get as many eggs as possible. (Then seeing how much candy they could sneak into their mouth before getting caught!)  I stuck around with Reese and Will's age group (2 and under) which was very entertaining.  I would say 90% of the kids would pick an egg, open it, try to eat the candy without taking the paper off, then go find another egg.  It was cute how they were all about quality over quantity.  This was especially true for Will. He was so intent on eating every piece as soon as he got it that he ended up with only a few eggs. It was the extreme opposite for Olivia's age group!  They were all about trying to get as many eggs as possible.  Then uncovering the loot.

Loved the horsey ride!

One of Olivia's Christmas presents this year was a certificate to go on a carriage ride. She has been very patient for the weather to become warmer, so we would be able to enjoy it without the canopy up.  Last night proved to be the perfect night.  

We went downtown early enough to eat dinner at the Spaghetti Factory (which the kids love) and then head on over to the carriage rides.  Reese and Will talked all through dinner about going on the "horsey ride".

Our horse's name was Cheyenne.  After the carriage ride was over, all of the kids were able to pet her and scratch her neck.  We had such a great time and they are still talking about it today!

I am a slacker

Yes, you saw it here first - I am a slacker. 

I have totally neglected my blog and I feel rotten. 
I tried to come up with some great excuses, but I. have. none. *sigh* 

I was especially bummed when McMommy had a POW and I missed it!  

So I've decided to do a quick potpourri of random thoughts so I can pull this blog back into shape!

**I am training for a half marathon and it is kicking me in the behind.  I've done every single run, but I am exhausted by 8:00.  This week my long run is at it's highest (12 miles) and then it is downhill until the race.  There are only 3 1/2 weeks left and I am feeling pretty confident that I can reach my personal goal of finishing in under 2 hours and 15 minutes.  :)

**All kids really need, to have a great hour (or more) of fun, is a big box!

**I'm really getting tired of this wishy washy weather.  One day the kids are playing in shorts and t-shirts and the next day it is snowing. It is so annoying trying to uncover winter coats after I just unpacked spring clothes. Seriously, pick a temperature and stay with it.

**Reese has gotten attached to one of Olivia's baby dolls.  This can be a problem since all of a sudden, it is Olivia's favorite baby doll. We are trying to convince Olivia to pick out a new baby doll at the store and give Reese the old baby doll.  So far, she can't find one good enough to replace the old one! Here she is holding the infamous baby doll!  (Will decided to get into the picture with her as well!)

**Last week we went to the zoo and I captured this great shot of Olivia. She loved wearing the flower in her hair - even though it wasn't supposed to be picked!

**I just found out that I won a second giveaway at McMommy and Me!  Dare I say I'm feeling pretty lucky right now!! 

**So I signed up on twitter.  Not exactly sure why since I have no idea what I am doing! 

I think that is enough for now.  It is time for me to call it a night.  I have to get up early tomorrow morning to run!  Night all.
