Merry Freaking Christmas!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful 2009! I know we have! I love my kids so much and this year I really wanted to try and capture their personalities in my picture for my card. I always have so many crazy ideas and can't always pull them off by myself and this year for my card I had amazing friend and photographer, Stacie (you must go to her blog and check out the pictures in large scale!) help me pull all my ideas from my head and get my Christmas card accomplished! She also put together the groupings of the kids to hang more pictures on my walls!

I hope these pictures make you smile or even giggle a little when you see them!

I am still Here!!!!

I am so overwhelmed that I have not updated in sooooo long. This is my journal and I would like to print it after Christmas so just a heads up I am slowly trying to catch up! This post will stay at the top because I put things in order so just keep scrolling down (if you are interested)!

We are doing great just so extremely busy and any down time I have I have not been at the computer...

Cute things Dylan has said to me TODAY: mom why do girls like me sooo much? Oh maybe it is because I am so funny do you think so mom? and When I fell down trick or treating mom I started to cry and daddy said how about some candy so I had a piece and it totally made me feel better so I think whenever anyone gets hurt we should give them candy immediately!

Kate thinks she is a princess and I always catch her singing, dancing and checking herself out in the mirror! She has a very strong opinion about her clothing and hair and likes her schedule in the morning: up potty eat get dressed no being lazy for her!

Dylan 6th Birthday

We were so lucky to have Paige and Tracie visit us for Dylan's Birthday! Tracie was a life savor in helping me pull everything off!

Audrey came over and painted all the kids faces for Dylan. Originally we were just going to do tigers but some of the kids started requesting other animals and Audrey couldn't say no- they turned out AWESOME!

My cupcake obsession! Cute huh?! They look a lot like the pictures in Hello Cupcake!

I think everyone had a wonderful time! They got the ears and tails to go with their faces and we did a craft and some games. Tracie made an awesome BINGO game with pictures of animals and we found the noise they make and made a CD for them to hear the noise and guess the animal. Thanks to everyone who came we love celebrating with all our friends and family!

My big 6 year old

Happy Birthday my sweet Dyl! He wanted an "animal" party so I took it and ran! We did an animal Safari party and Audrey came and painted all the kids faces. We gave them tails and ears to match! (More pictures to come, I have been a total slacker lately)! We used this picture of him in the invite- he said it was a little scary but not as scary as some of the others we picked as to not make anyone cry!

Dylan is very sweet, smart, loving, and athletic! He is so obedient, loves school and gets along with everyone in his class. He is an awesome big brother always helping Kate and including her in everything he does. He had field day at his school the other day and gave up some of his turns to let his sister have a turn without me saying anything! I love you so much Dylan and I am excited to have a fun summer with you! A wonderful mothers day having his birthday fall on it this year!

Dylan Soccer Pictures

This is Dylans last time he gets to play with the Dragonflies. We are so sad to leave all these wonderful families of all his girl team mates! Next season we will have a new coach and be on a team of all boys.

I should of zoomed in a little more those pictures captured Dylan and the use of his tongue when he plays soccer. He loves playing defense and protecting the goal (they don't really play with goalies yet)

Grant and him had a huge collision- I can not believe I got it with my camera!

More of that Tongue!
He is so comfortable with Coach Jeff. I am placing a couple pictures to show how sweet my little boy is!

Happy very late Easter!

We took these pictures at least two weeks before Easter hoping to get Easter cards in the mail before Easter and now it is a week after and they are still not done... Wonderful Debbie helped me make Kate's dress that she absolutely loves and I got Dylan's outfit at the Polo outlet-this is the second go around of shirts I had originally gotten him pink and boy did I hear it from Marc and all his brothers! Anyway :) we went to my friend Stacie's house to use all her natural light and nice walls and I am pretty sure it is my fault (or should I say Kate's) for her going into labor at 3:30 in the morning and getting the phone call so her kids could come over! Kate was not being very cooperative and poor Stacie was on her hands and knees trying to make her smile and stay in one spot! I will post more pictures later-very funny! Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and don't keep checking your mailbox for my Easter card because I do not think it is going to happen:( but I already have 20 copies of this picture so if you want one let me know!

My sweet Husband

Marc turned 33 on April 15th and at the end of the month he passed his PE exam which is a huge deal for him and his career! We love him so much and appreciate all he does for us as a family! He is so good with the kids and play swith them all the time. He is constantly asking me what else he can do to help me and always telling me how much he loves me!

Kate and her own obsessions...

Lotion-can I say anything else?! Except maybe I have washed her hair multiple times a day this week for the amount of lotion she has rubbed into her scalp! We have gotten really good at laying on the counter and using the sink!

Stone Family (bunch of goofs)

My moms Maiden name is Stone and we don't all get together as much as we should. This gathering came together because one of my moms Uncles passed away. It was Pete's birthday and of course we had to celebrate! Kate always picks the boys to hang out with!

My Uncle Ron thinks he is so funny! He knew immediately that I would be posting these pictures on my blog and couldn't help himself. He lives in Florida with his family but when I was in high school he and his wife owned an auto body shop that was close to my school and they so kindly offered me a job. I had lots of fun hanging out with him and Jeanine and Tyler when he was born. We went on lots of trips together boating for long weekends. Sure miss you guys!

Our Day

We had a busy morning today. Got Dylan to his last day of school for spring break, came home got Kate and I ready picked him back up to take him to a new pediatric dentist that is in the building I work in. We arrived early and Dylan had his first xrays taken and thought that was pretty cool. He went right on back with the hygienist and wanted me to wait in the waiting room. Everything is great no cavities and Kate's teeth look awesome as well.

I switched Dentists to try and save us a little money. Being in the dental field we do not have insurance so a lot of Dentists give professional discounts and as sad as I am to leave our current Dentists we were only getting 10% off which has been nice but I thought I would just try these guys and hope for more. I went to make him his next app. and pulled out my wallet to pay and they did not charge me anything! I was shocked! I thought maybe 30% off! I teared up a little bit so nice and we so appreciate it!

My mom had meet us there (her day off) and we headed over to have lunch at Chili's. It had been a fun and productive morning and when we got back to school Dylan was so excited! He said this had been the funnest day ever and ran off to show his class his extra set of xrays they gave him so he could keep them.

The day continues to get busier! Poor Kate will probably only get about a n hour and a half nap and then off to Warren's house she will go so I can help at Dylan's school for the book fair and then we have student led parent teacher conferences. I am excited to see what Dylan has been learning and how they do this. It is an adventure for all of us!

I have a lot of fun things planned for spring break next week if any one wants to join let me know! I am so thankful for kind and generous people and for my sweet Dylan how the littlest things can totally make his day! I hope he will remember his childhood and continue to be such a happy go lucky kid!

Little Helper

Weird pictures I know but what my tiny girl did brought tears to my eyes! I was in the shower and Kate was finishing up her oatmeal by herself in the kitchen. I got out and we had to rush to get out the door. I went into the kitchen to make sure she finished and I could not find her bowl anywhere! I immediately thought that d*** dog got up on my table and took off with her bowl! We left the house and later that afternoon after I had laid Kate down for a nap I went to load dishes in an empty dishwasher and I found this! My 2 year old had loaded the dishes all by herself! What a thoughtful good girl! I know two pictures are a little over kill but what can I say I am a proud Mama!

Happy (late) St. Patricks Day

We love Holidays especially when we are dictated on what to wear and what to eat! The weather here has been amazing in the 70s! Lots of trips to the park and playing outside! Friday we had Marc's family over for corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and carrots. I also made a blue cheese fondue dip that was very good! Wendy made rolls and Grandma and Kerrie made a yummy dessert! We had lots of fun! Dylan is so proud that he can jump off the porch and touch our flag!
Don't you just love Kate's hairbow? At 5 the night before St Patty's day I called a friend and asked her if she would make me a felt shamrock so at 10 that night I was picking it up and glueing it on to a clip! I am a little nuts I know! Thank you so much Steph you are the best! I owe you one!
