No Cable = More Smiles

Hubby and I decided to get rid of cable. It has been one of the best things we ever did. We have been talking about it for moths, but neither one of us took the initiative to do it. So, while hubby was in Nevada, I took back our cable boxes. (I called him to get his approval).
Wow, how much more family time we have had now! The kids and I have made more trips to the library, pool and beach. We are reading together more, playing more board games, and hanging outside meeting our neighbors! It has been fabulous! Here are some pictures of the kids playing monkey in the middle with hubby. I am sure we would have been in front of the TV this night if it would have been wonderful to have made this memory instead!

Little Guy was full of laughter!
Hey Tiger, get ready! Hurry Little Guy, daddy is going to tickle me!

Never mind, I got daddy now!

Helping Daddy

I am always so amazed at my hubby's patience with the boys. They asked him to hang a dry erase board in their room a few weeks ago. He took this time to teach them a little more about a drill and a hammer. Tiger wasn't as into as Little Guy, probably because he already knows how to use all those tools! Little Guy was in heaven. Tiger ended up teaching Little Guy right alongside Hubby.

Tiger, the pro!
Look at the concentration on Little Guy!

I love how they both put that tongue out while concentrating!

Green Eggs for breakfast

I love reading to my little ones! Little Guy wanted me to read Green Eggs and Ham. I think I enjoy those Dr. Seuss books more than the kids! Anyway, after reading it to him I asked if he would like to try green eggs for breakfast. He said, "YES!" He was so cute! He had eaten green eggs before at school, but he didn't get to "make" them. So, he begged to "make" them with me. I promised he would be able to help prepare them in the am. So here are some pics of our green eggs!

Little Guy would eat green eggs here OR there! He'd eat them anywhere!
Little Guy even talked the girls into it! He could not get Tiger to try them!

The Last Day of School

It is hard to believe summer is finally here! Our last day of school was May 22. I know, I am late what's new! Maybe now that summer is here I will have some more time for blogging!
We are so proud of our children! They did a great job at the program! Cutie is now a 4th grader, Tiger is a 2nd grader and Little Guy will go to Kindergarten! Wow! Where does the time go?
