the last three months

have been full of long work hours and long work trips for Justin, and lots of school and homework for me. Not the usual trip after trip after trip like last year. But it's good. I like being busy though I'm looking forward to the summer as it's a chance to spend lots of one on one time with my kids. Ellie is very clingy the last couple months and throws lots of tantrums. She doesn't like when I leave her to go to school or the gym. So, well see what happens with school - my kids are the most important thing and I don't want them to have to sacrifice because I chose not to go to school when I should have. Hopefully once she starts school I can schedule classes during that time.

A few fun things to remember:

Skiing with Courage. Two whole runs on the big lift! The last half of the last run I had Cody between my legs and Ellie on my back. How's that for a leg workout? I tell you WHAT.

Playing hair salon with Braden. I really just needed this picture so I can trace circles around his cheeks with my mouse.

An attempt to redeem a bad day. Late night party at the park with hot chocolate.

"We are sitting in clean laundry with an umbrella watching a movie. Mom, it makes sense."

My mom's birthday lunch at their new condo. We have been helping with the painting and now my dad's putting in the wood floor. I wish I could go there everyday. I love a good re-model.

Playing at the Gateway with Erin, Levi, and Dana. They got us in the Children's museum for free but after an hour or so we couldn't stay inside anymore as it was such a pretty day.

Some kind of "scary" footprints at our house on March 17.



This is embarrassing.

You are the cutiest cute mom. A late night trip to the park to make up for a bad day. I'm making a mental note to be like that.

Looks like you guys are having a great time. I love the movie in the laundry basket and the trip to the park. Hope school is going well!

Well now I can blog stock you :) I absolutely loved my dress too :) and I'm glad you liked it. If Ellie doesn't turn out to be tall and thin like her mother than she sure can wear it!

yes we will be in Texas for awhile probably a little after the summer is over. Yes I would love to come to your pool b/c there are really weird people who stare in our complex....
