A Little March update...

This year the leprechaun came again on St Pattys day and left us donuts...and as you can see...they were MUCH enjoyed!!!!  Unfortunately, the boys were just getting over yet another COLD...so we attempted to go to a tent/parade for music...and well...that was a bust.  So we just hung out at home and nursed them back to health...



Last week my mom was in town as was able to watch the boys for us for a few days...it was SO nice having her here....we had so much fun!!  And luckily everyone was healthy! Here are a few pictures of the gang dying eggs...Little Marshall was SO into it...he cried when it was over!  And his hands...were bright yellow.  The eggs turned out cute too...




 Saturday we headed out to the Palatine Jaycees Egg Hunt.  The boys had a blast...and we all enjoyed the sun :)  Here are a few pictures of the hunt and the loot...afterwards we went out for lunch and had hotdogs and ice cream...what a GREAT day!



 Here we are with our friends Ellen and Anna







 This is AS CLOSE...as Brayden would get to the bunny...
 But Marshall...could not get enough of him!!!

Before Grandma left we had a little hunt inside and enjoyed our Easter goodies from her...





 She also brought us a fort building kit...what a blast!  Brayden told us he was going to live in there for a week and not shower....we looked forward to the vacation...but it only lasted 2 minutes :)
More to come soon I hope...I have been LIVING IT up this week, as I am on Spring Break and the boys and I have been busy having LOTS of FUN!!!!!

February Happenings...

As I am sure most of you heard...we had some MAJOR snow dumping here the last few weeks, but thankfully...today RAIN came and the snow is WASHING away!!!  Whooohoooo....don't get me wrong, I like the snow a little (like a little...) and I tried to embrace the good times with the kids...but I am OVER it now...bring on SPRING!  Here are a few pics of the kids in the snow...
Our fruity snowman (we had to use fruit for the eyes and nose)

 Aaron and Brayden built an igloo

Thawing out...


Darth Vader...



This is Marshall's "I know I just did something wrong and you caught me face" he is seriously such a funny boy that LOVES to try to push everyone's buttons...


Working...We have been BUSY fixing everything....I tell you what, being a workerman is a hard job!  Especially when Brayden AKA Fix it Felix is the foreman!
