when i drop old stuff off at the resale shop, i let kayleigh pick out a clip or bow. she was not going to bend on getting this one yesterday, lol! she loves it, and i'm sure she'll wear it often, haha!

norah got some bad road rash today. she dove face first on to the back patio from the kitchen. it was so scary, but she screamed for a good minute and then was fine. her face and hands are covered with gashes and scrapes, though. poor thing.

see? she gets over things pretty quick! :)


my biggest complaint about living here is john's schedule. him working every other weekend sucks. we had a big weekend planned, since he worked last weekend, and with fevers and the weather getting too chilly, they were a bust. so we just hung out yesterday not doing much of anything. seems to be the theme lately (and so not us!). i can't wait. kayleigh only has 11 more days of school & then we can start doing things during the week again. yippee!

ethan's so funny. he thinks anything is 3d as long as he wears his glasses now, lol!


friday and saturday norah had a fever, so i pretty much sat around all day holding her because she was miserable. today she seems much better. here's a snap friday night of norah taking a nap with ethan's little foot. uploaded to the laptop, so probably off in color & exposure, lol.

today after kayleigh got out of school we all went to see monsters vs aliens in 3d. it was super fun, but yikes - expenisve, lol. everyone loved it, and there were only two other people in the theater. my kinda movie day!



my baby's got sauce! she is such a stinker & loves dressing herself. pretty insisrant on it most of the time. around bedtime i was folding laundry & she just would not let go of etan's pj pants. so .... she out them on & went right to sleep, lol.

still uploading from the laptop, so likely under exposed .... :) cruddy day outside today. kayleigh's after school activity even got cancelled. they can handle snow here, but not rain? lol!



a framer for sure, lol! i was playing with my speedlight before dinner & this was the only one i forgot to delete .... so, being the only photo of the day, here it is, lol! it's probably under exposed. i'm on the laptop uploading & it's way brighter than my desktop.

lunch of champions. a "pat's philly steak" with fried onions from denver, and some tastycakes (fwiw, i did not eat them all - i only had one each ... but i am sure i COULD eat it all, lol!). ethan didn't eat his steak, so it's totally my lunch for tomorrow!

and so the bulge begins!

just a couple near SOOC from today just resized & sharpened for web (2nd one cropped). :) this sandbox was one of the best investments we ever made. :)



i was surprised to find these on my card, because i didn't remember taking any pictures yesterday. we had a busy day. we checked out a birth center, but decided we'll be sticking with home birth.

who doesn't love a game of peek-a-boo behind the couch? :)

easter was fun. it rained so we did our egg hunt inside. i think this is the only picture with all three kids in it, and before the other two got dressed. :)



saturday we were going to go to colorado springs. the weather looked pretty crappy, so we decided to stick close to home & hit the science museum instead. the rain cleared on the way, so we changed plans & went to the zoo. :) as you can see, it was very busy, lol!
