A day at the beach...

We spent the early afternoon at the "beach" in the local dog park! It has a really pretty stream running through it, and the kids had a blast just getting their feet dirty. They brought their instruments, and played a little on the shore.












...and one random shot of Ashlyn Belle sleeping. Isn't she sweet????

Some pictures...

Watch out world, here comes Courtney and Avery!

My little Avi beans...
Ashi and Mosby pal around quite a bit. Actually, I think he is usually a pillow or a chair for her!

KING CAKE!

My fun friend from UT, Daren, lives in New Orleans, and sent us this cool King Cake for Mardi Gras! The kids were chomping at the bit to open the box!
Going through the loot...

It was such a cool package- it came with magazines about New Orleans and the Mardi Gras tradition, a mini-poster, a CD of some Mardi Gras music, some really cool Mardi Gras beads, a cup from the bakery that made the cake, and a HUGE King Cake!


The enclosed card read, "your kids will be bouncing off the walls after eating this..."
THANKS DAREN.... here's a preview! :)
Thanks for sending this! What a cool present!!!

My Birthday!

I had an amazing birthday! I turned 29... again.... on February 5th, and I was spoiled rotten! I awoke to the beautiful sounds of someone else unloading the dishwasher! The oldest 3 kids had gotten up before me, and were unloading the dishwasher as a surprise!

Then, we all got ready and went to the Avenues near our house. The kids all got a Webkin, and I bought myself 3 books and a flavored coffee from Borders! We came home, built a fire, and totally vegged out!!!!
I am reading my two new awesome books by Ayn Rand and also "Peace Like a River."

Avery and Stoney enjoyed some time on the computer...
Alex conned me into making us a pumpkin pie... His favorite!
And my wonderful husband brought us all some Red Lobster for dinner... It was too cold to go out to eat!
Notice who the last one at the table is... He is finishing off all the leftover food. ;)

My sweet husband also sent me some GORGEOUS flowers!!! With stems cut, I don't have to worry about keeping them from dying! :)

Avery is an Awesome Reader!!!

Avery is an incredible reader! She just turned 4 at the end of September, and I find her working on her reading by herself all the time!
