Cailynn has her 1st TOOF!

During one of my many exploratory feel of the gums I finally felt was I was looking for! A TOOF! Cailynn got her first toofer! It does not even seem like she could possibly be old enough to have a tooth already! It was her bottom right. Unfortunately the little booger will not let me get a picture of her pearly edge of a tooth so this picture of her just being extremely so stinkin' cute will have to do!

Happy Easter 2009

If I had only one word to describe our Easter it would be WONDERFUL! Staying up until 3:00 A.M. that morning probably wasn't the best idea but the Easter Bunny had to wait until all the kids were soundly tucked away (which happened to be about 11:30 P.M. due to Christopher's excitement) and then the filling and dividing of the basket fun began! Before my eyes even began to get use to being shut I heard the morning commotion of "The Easter Bunny came! The Easter Bunny came!" So back up it was to see what the sneaky Easter Bunny left.

It only took about 2 seconds for the kids to take everything out of the baskets that had been so carefully put in them but all was fun!

After all that excitement it was time to get ready to go to church. Christopher was really excited to be going to church. He is an amazing little man. At the age of 5 he already has such a strong relationship with God. He really inspires me to get a better relationship with him myself. We met Terry, Kristen and Amberly at church and it was a really nice, fun service. I definitely see this as a new spiritual journey our family is heading down. Here is a picture of us outside after services.

After church we all came back to our house and the kids thoroughly enjoyed the Easter Egg Hunt! I don't know which one had more eggs but they enjoyed the hunt so much! After all the excitement it was time to sit down and enjoy our Easter Feast as Christopher called it. It was all mouth watering from the Honey Baked Ham to the Strawberry Pie!

We really had a wonderful 2009 Easter!

Green, Yellow, Blue, Pink Purple, oh my!

As the kids get older it seems like the fun just is beginning. Christopher always has this look of excitement, Carissa can't wait to do the next fun thing, and Cody just smiles and goes with the flow. We colored eggs today and I can truly say that it was one of the most fun times we have had doing a project with the kids. It could have been because there was extra help. It could have been that the kids were really into it. Whatever it was we had a BLAST!

Bad Boys! Bad Boys!

We got home yesterday and unloaded the kids. When we went around back the edivence of the Boys doings was APPARENT! Gary tells me to go around back and look at my rose bushes. So I go and ofcourse the boys (Tank and Gunner) follow like nothing is wrong. I took one look and gasped! All my beautiful bloomed roses are GONE. Poof Gone! There were a few petals of the missing roses on the ground.
Gary and I turned around and asked them which one did it. Neither fessed up at first but then Gunner let out the pee works. When he gets nervous he just pees! So I knew right there and then that he was the guilty one. We told him no and that these were OFF limits and he just peed some more. LOL
Every plant I have gotten these doggies have eaten. I wouldn't have thought roses taste good but apparently they taste as good as they smell. We have a few roses getting ready to bloom on each bush. So we will see what happens to them. My poor roses didn't even know what they had coming for them.

Bad Bad Boys!

Carrots for Cailynn

We tried carrots and YAY! Another one that agreed with her! I think our days of her getting extremely gassy are OVER! I say that with such a relief. Now don't get me wrong the girl can still pass the loudest gas out of all my children but now she does it with a smile on her face! I see her taking after Daddy already!

Giddy Up says Carissa

Today Carissa had her first ride on a horse! A can see this being the start of a new addiction for my sweet little princess. She is going to be the kid you ask "What did Mommy and Daddy get for you for your birthday little girl" and her reply is going to be "A New Horsey"!

I knew she was going to have NO fear and that is exactly what she had. She was so eager to just jump on the horse not caring how wild or crazy or big it was to her.

She wasn't too fond of the helmet but told her without it she wasn't riding. So the helmet made it through the whole ride! Her she is sporting the cute little helmet.

She was in heaven just going around and around.

Look at my very proud girl! She makes me so proud.
