Uncle Walter and Aunt Jodie came for a quick visit this weekend. They brought out a trampoline that mom and dad found on E-bay for $3.75.

We had fun with Walter and Jodie. We had a few nice meals at home. Cooked them some farm fresh eggs for breakfast with biscuits and some of my canned apple butter.

OK kids, Its bath time everybody into the wash stall. I'll get the hose!

Its has been so nice these past few days. Almost hit the 70's outside. Notice, no jackets!

What do you think the chances are it will stay this way through their upcoming two weeks at home with mommy? Not good huh? I'll probably have four muchkins helping me bake cookies and with other inside activities. Just think how clean they will get their rooms. Yeah right! Wake up mommy, your dreaming!

Robbie Rooster - Taken December 2006

Here is Robbie Rooster and some of his "chicks". Pun intended. (We did not name the rooster after our son, he was already named when we got him - Just coincidence.)

The small chick is one of the surviving chicks that hatched back in September. She and two others survived Stitch's chicken buffet day. Stitch ate the mom and four of the babies. BAD DOG!

Girls' Sleepover

The girls finally had their sleepover on Friday. All the girls had forgotten about it on the actual planned date the week prior. So I got to remake the doll cake. The purple and pink is the first verison. The orange is the second cake. The second one was requested to be yellow. But a mixup with the coloring had us deciding orange would be fine.

To moms delight the girls were all asleep by 11:00 p.m. Much better than the all-niter the boys pulled!

Funny Story - Ashlee

OK, so no pic for this one, but funny kid antic to share...

We were riding along in the mini-van and the kids were watching an old mickey cartoon collection we bought from Costco sometime ago. The video talks about the history of Mickey Mouse etc. Ashlee says, "Mom, when you were a little girl was Mickey black and white?" I was appalled, you may as well have asked me if dinosaurs were alive when I was little!

Then I thought for a moment... In cartoons Mickey was color... But come to think of it... If I was watching Mickey on TV, it WAS black and white!!!! I'M OLD!

This is Aimee with a friend, Allie at a bridal shower we went to on Sunday. We think Allie looks like she could be Aimee's little sister. Allie thinks Aimee is great!

Ryan at the Mall

Ryan loves the mall play area!

He gets excited when we drive into the mall parking lot. After we get done at the play area, we go window shopping. Of course his favorite store is Build-A-Bear Workshop. That's the only store I have to steer him from entering.

He walks so "big" when he's in charge at the mall.

By the time we drive back to the house, he's ready for naptime!

Here are a few more pictures on the play area.
