Out of the Winter Slumber.. Finally!

Neighborhood friend and S race to the Eggs at out neighborhood Easter egg rally. It was a blast. E at the egg in the bucket game.

All the kids were really good sports. This was the first year the E was in the "big kid" group. He had a challenging time but in the end. We all got chocolate and that is want REALLY mattered!

Baseball and T-ball season has started. Both E and S are on teams with black shirts this year. I have heard that we can expect some sweaty kids once the weather heats up. Fun!? All I am concerned with lately is that ALL our Saturdays are now full of driving all over Hershey's many ball fields. This will be my weekend life through June.

We had a great visit from friends from Morgantown last weekend. They even help us remove and unwanted (little furry) guest. Now those are the kind of guests you invite back!! THANKS!

Short Sick Month

We are looking forward to this month being over.

First it was SNOW,


and more SNOW....then we ALL got sick. Ugh!

But it hasn't all been bad. We have enjoyed some yummy Swedish treats in the form of Odd's homemade selmor.

We had a great Dress-Up Tea Party Birthday for our Ms. S! So many dresses, so little time!

The mermaid cake by request!

Plus there is ALWAYS hockey.....

I love chesse crackers!

Today was the PTO event at Fudruckers. It was packed of course. We waited and waited with a full house of Elementary School folk. Everyone on the under ten-set was begging for quarters to go to the arcade. E' discovered PacMan to my surprising pleasure, for nostalgias sake I had to let him play.
It was a mad house and it was totally fun. I love the randomness of little kids. Talking with one of my best mommy-friends. and suddenly a little pip-squeak says in a strong voice
"I love cheese crackers."
Sure...why not.

Sick Boy and Two Teeth

I got home for my crazy Bunco girls night (I'm one wild and crazy Momma?!) and I hear the always dreaded late-night moan from my little boys room. Oh no!

He was sick. Very sick...change the sheets and take this bucket back to bed sick. Poor guy.

Poof.... there goes the weekend!

Now in our umtheth hour of ToonDisney. We have another surprise.

Toothless wonder! S has lost her 6th tooth. Her second in the last 2 days. This is revenge of the tooth fairy. S is thrilled, of course!

S- like to build. Her current favorite material is marbles. Lots of marbles. She spent hours over the last few mornings building pyramids. It weirds me out a little bit but I also have to admit that I am a little proud of her dedication and patience. She has more steady patience then any little person. Maybe it is all the years of living with her overwhelmingly impatience big brother. I need to learn some of this simple skill for my little girl. Patience is a virtue, right?

Baby is on it's way!!!

My little sister has had the longest pregnancy EVER!!!! (according to her)

She was ready to have the whole bloating, sick, uncomfortable-ness part of the pregnancy over about 8 months ago. While I never felt her pain, I feel for her. She is my only sister after all!

We are all waiting ever so anxiously for baby boy to join our family party today so we can finally meet him and my dear sister can have a brake. And then of course she is expected to go back to being a full-time mom, organizing, school teaching fool, wonderful wife, daughter and sister that she is!

L maybe you should stay in the hospital for the WHOLE 48 hours! ;-)

Come on baby! Get on out and join the party!

Our new ice skating pond in the 'hood

Skating today on our little holding pond. Very cold outside but the weather was great for an out door skating party. I even got to make like a swede and bring out the cold weather picnic. It was great the house was only a block away. The hot chocolate and grill cheese was still warm. Now I need to get some skates to join the party too!

Kids back in school

Alarm blaring at 6:30 and E climbs on me at 6:45. Suddenly it is 7:30, we are all still in bed. Snoring.
Breakfast, bus, school..
But S still hasn't finished eating, dressing, or finished the homework from before the holidays. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Good thing we still had the morning before S had school. phew

But when S came home from school this evening my belly-laugh came to me too.

It is the greatest kids drawing "Trip to Grammy and Poppy's" for the holidays (in a wacky car with twelve wheels and one window). You gotta love the attention to detail, the trees, the clouds, all our smiling faces and my "brown" hair. perfect.

I guess EVERYDAY is NOT happening!

It is day 3 of 2010 and I have already missed a day of my blog. BOOOO on me!

OK...moving on.
I missed telling you on Jan. 2 that we took the tree down after my belly-laugh of the day, Robbing the Tree.

Robbing the tree is the coolest way to end the holiday season that has ever been invented. First,I took everything out for the Christmas tree but the lights, the candy, and some special "poppers" we had made before Christmas.

Then we let the kids clean out the tree in the style of pin the tail on the donkey. It was so much fun to play with the kids.

We took down the rest of the decorations today with the party music channel playing in the background. Then we had a kick butt session of Wii Active and Lego Rock Band. I love the Hives, by the way. Thank Rock Band for the introduction.

Today's belly laugh...Kids trying to distract us from Sunday Morning on CBS by stuffing their pajama bottoms with towels and chanting "looooook at my butt, looook at my butt!" Comedy at its finest.

Janurary 1

Here it begins. 2010 started very well. Got the kids to bed a little after 11PM, got in my new PJs, washed the make-up off my face, and just got the TV on to watch the ball fall in NYC. Pretty good.

This morning I made plans...
2010 Year of Taking Responsibility

I have to take responsibility for myself, my health, my family, and my future. No one is to blame but me.

I hope my family and friends will hold me accountable.

I can report on my first belly-laugh. The Stalebr Lego Rock Band: Meghan taking lead vocals, Odd on guitar, Elliot on drums, and Sofia on the big bass. BIG FUN! I see this becoming the new family fun time!
