Little Guy Skateboarding

Here's Little Guy learning to himself. He wanted no help!

Mom, I can do it...I just have to get my foot on here.

See, there...both feet are on now...and I am standing!

He's rolling on down the driveway...making silly hand motions at all of us...because he can do it all by himself!

I had to post this picture of the boys. Tiger woke up today and tucked in his shirt and put on a belt. He has decided to start tucking in his shirts like the older boys! At our school the boys don't have to do that until 3rd grade! I just loved the shirt tucked in...looks so grown up! Little Guy put on Tiger's old baseball pants after school. He came downstairs and said:

Little Guy: Mom, look at me!
Me: Oh how adorable you look! Just like a real baseball player.
Little Guy: I know! I looked in the mirror!

I am so thankful for my boys...such sweethearts!

Complete Silliness

Cutie and her friends crack me up! I remember sleeping over at a friends home...we never tried to make ourselves look like this! They are so funny! Oh, to be young again!

Enjoying our Break!

The kids and I are still on Spring Break...enjoying every minute! Today Cutie, Little Guy and I made breakfast for everyone. It was so yummy...pancakes, hash browns, fried eggs and bacon! Good thing I ran this am! While we cooked, Tiger and his friend played the Wii. I think we will do a little gardening and then just hang by the pool! Oooohhhh, I can't wait for summer!

1 Cor. 15:55-57
Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Spring Break Fun Begins

Our Spring Break began on Friday! It was a cold day, so we took the kids for hot chocolate and to see "Hotel For Dogs" at the dollar theatre with friends. Little Guy wore his Superman suit all day. I think it may be the last time he wears it outside the home. When we arrived at the theatre he said, "mama, I am embarrassed...I want to change!" He was stuck in that suit all day because we didn't bring a change of clothes! He ended up being fine AND the center of it was a good day for all!

Gifts from CO

Tom's parents often send the children big boxes of goodies in the mail. The kids love when we come home from school and see a box that has been sent from CO! We can't get the door open fast enough to get inside to open it! Today another box arrived! Little Guy had the hardest time see, we had gotten home before the other he had to wait...2.5 hours. Waiting is so difficult when you are only 4 ( I mean 4&3/4!) You probably guessed that the first thing out of his mouth when the older kids got in the car from school! "Guess what! There is a box at home from Grandma and Grandpa Crider!" Lots of excitement in our car on the way home!
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa! The kids are enjoying everything you sent!

Levi was a little upset when he was told that he had to wait (again with the waiting) until AFTER dinner to have another piece of candy! His mood quickly changed when I told him he could have no more candy if he didn't change his attitude!

Little Guy Time

Little Guy and I love going to the park together to swing, just the two of us. He loves to spider swing with mama! I love it too. I can't believe he is going to five in less than a month. (sigh) time is really flying. I guess, he really isn't "little" anymore...but he will always be my Little Guy.

Pick the picture

Cutie wants a picture of the dogs blown up in her room. She loves her dogs so much! I can always find them on her lap. Her plan is to be a vet some day. I think she will be a great vet!
So, which one should we choose?#1,2,3 or 4? Oh, I'm thinking of turning the picture into black/white?!

Growing up way too fast

I took these pictures of Tiger after church the other day. I cannot believe how big he is getting. Where did the time go? He is suppose to be 3 not 71/2! He is growing up so fast!

This calls for celebration!

Little Guy is feeling much better this afternoon. (he wore his pjs all day) So, after we picked up Tiger from school, Tiger suggested we go to their favorite frozen yogurt place! Golden Spoon
Tiger: "Since Levi is feeling better, we should celebrate with ice cream!"
I am raising such smart boys!

Bedtime = Party Time

Hubby likes to tease the kids about bedtime. He told them a few weeks ago that after they go to bed, mom and dad party! We have ice cream, watch tv, listen to music and dance. So on our way home from dinner the other night, here was our conversation:

Hubby: Kids, when we get home, you need to get ready for bed.

Little Guy: NO FAIR!

Hubby: (has forgotten what he told the kids) Little Guy, what is no fair?

Little Guy: You and mom are going to stay up and dance and watch movies and kiss!

We all started laughing!

I asked the kids a few weeks ago, "If mommy was famous, what would mommy be famous for?"

Cutie: Singing

Tiger: Singing

Little Guy: Kissing Dada
