The Lean Mean Mowin' Machines

Jason has a t-shirt that says "The Lean Mean Mowin' Machine" that my parents had picked up for him somewhere. This describes him perfectly b/c he is TOTALLY anal about our yard! Now look who is following (literally) in his footsteps!

Braden has decided that the lawnmower is too loud so he wears "earmuffs," as he calls them.

They actually mowed the lawn last Thursday before the 2+ inch snow on Sunday- go figure- That's Illinois weather for ya!

Allison's Crazy Faces

Allison has this crazy face that she makes where she squinches up her eyes very tight - sometimes if she is objecting to something and sometimes I think just to be silly! Excuse the sweet potatoes all over her face- she doesn't like the "orange" vegetables so it is all I can do to get it in her mouth without her swatting the spoon away. Some of you may know that Braden recently had to have his tongue clipped b/c he was tongue tied. I feel pretty safe in saying that this baby won't have to have that surgery- she can lick the bottom of her chin if she tries! And no, she doesn't have more than 2 teeth- the first picture looks like she has some in the back, but just two teeth- AND STILL NO HAIR!

cont'd picts from last post

Obviously I am not the best blogger, so I couldn't figure out how to get all the picts on one post. This is continued from last post!

Yea for warmer weather!!!!!

We are finally starting to have warmer weather and we are SO THANKFUL for it!!! It is so nice to be able to get out of the house. I never realized how much I liked warm weather until I had a little boy who needed to run (outside the house)!

We met one of Braden's best buddies at the park today (with his mom, who is one of my best buddies, and has a little boy the same age as Allison) and the boys had a great time playing together and just enjoying the sunshine!

Most of you that read this may already know that Jason has a couple of interviews this week, but in case you are just finding out- please keep him in your prayers!

2 Teeth and a 3 Year Old Birthday Party!

So I have decided to start a blog - AGAIN! We'll see how long I make it! This may be boring to most, but a few will find our daily life and the SUPER CUTE picts of our kids intersting.

My kiddos are growing fast- Braden just had his 3rd Birthday! We had his party at the Little Gym (thanks to Mom and Dad) and he loved it! We had 15 kids and I am so glad they were not at my house- it was great- we just arrived, had a birthday party and left- no set up, no mess, and no clean up!

Sweet baby Allison is struggling with teeth- she officially has 2 (click on the picture if you don't see them)! Now if she could just get some hair for all the bows that are waiting...
