Just a blog....

I am doing a "not 30 pictures" day post today. I will never get you caught up on what we are up to if I wait 30 days and I would HATE for you to miss that ;)

We have started the madness at this house- REMODELING! At the moment I have about 20-something boxes of hardwood sitting in my living room. I have 4 gallons of paint in my kitchen along with a bag full of misc. supplies. I finally finished my front door yesterday (and when I typed this I remembered I didn't paint it down the side because I had to close it so it really isn't finished..... grrrr) I have 2 new lights in my kitchen. And I have so much more to do it ain't even funny! We are doing everything that I have wanted done for 5 years- and even though I have a sense of "we are doing this for SOMEBODY ELSE" I am still thrilled to see it finished. (JD was thrilled until he saw how rapidly the money was being spent.... the thrill left him and was replaced with a nervous twitch :)-

The kids are great! Kaylee and Kaden are in a race to see who grows the fastest- good thing it warmed up because they are busting at the seams in their winter clothes. I had a dress that I put up for next year because it was so big on Kaylee (even the sleeves were too long) and I just happened to think of this growth spurt and let her try it on.... it fits.... and would have been too short for next winter!
Kaden wore a pair of shorts yesterday that Kyle could still wear LAST YEAR! (Kyle will be 6 in a few months- Kaden turns 2 next month) And Kyle- well- he can actually wear some size 5's now! The doctor even commented that Kyle should be really nice to Kaden because it isn't going to be long until Kaden is the "bigger" brother!

I am off to the big city of Scottsboro today to eat for Juliah's birthday. She is precious and I hope she has a good time. She is so busy with school, etc. that we don't get to see her much. I stay on the look-out for a her a boyfriend and have YET to find someone whom I think is worthy of her. If you have a resume of any potential guys- you may run them by me for approval ;)

Happy gorgeous Friday! I hope we all get to run around in the sunshine! (I actually took the kids dirt-bike for a run yesterday.... ummmm..... Kyle must have gotten his riding skills from me...... that was scary!)

We had a "new spring outfit" photo shoot. You can only imagine how well these kids cooperated..... if I could only learn how to USE photoshop I could transfer heads and make it appear that my darling children all looked at the camera and smiled at the same time!!!
One of the better ones.....

How the rest of them turned out.....
