Slow Fast-Beth's Driving Lesson

OMG, so this was the craziest car ride I have ever taken.....almost. Beth was re-learning the fine art of driving a 5 speed so she could take Sam's car back down to the Valley. Needless to say, it was a very long drive to pick up a pizza. When asked how many times she stalled, I looked at all my fingers and then moved on to my toes and still lost track!!! :) We did make it home 45 minutes after we left, which the pizza place was only 4 miles away...LOL...I don't know the last time I laughed that hard. Thanks Beth.....love ya!

Under My Breath



While arguing with Garrett to get into the shower, he decided to throw a tantrum, and in the midst of our disagreement on how often kids should shower he fell backwards into the shower and pulled the shower curtain down as well. Under my breath I mumbled some "not so nice words" and then waited to see if he was laughing or crying. When I saw that he was laughing and the disaster he created, I decided that it was funny and he decided to take his shower. It all worked out.

Cool at the Zoo

Today we went to the zoo. We got a zoo membership as a gift and were so excited to go check it out. It was toasty warm outside and the kids and I really enjoyed ourselves. I even think we'll go back again on Friday!!!

Easter 2008

While this was an enjoyable day, complete with laughter, good food, silly antics, tears and tantrums, we have decided that we probably will not have a money egg hunt next year!!!

Coco Puff Chaos




Okay so this is one of those moments where you don't know if you want to laugh or cry and you certainly entertain the idea of making them eat their food from the floor. Garrett has broken more dishes and spilled more food/drinks than any one child in an entire lifetime. This wasn't just a spill....it was more of a coco puff explosion. The pictures don't even begin to explain the madness!

The Bark Bark Video

This is Christopher acting like a puppy with his puppy hat from Aunt Peggy and Uncle Don. I've saved this video because it's so dang funny. It doesn't matter how many times I watch it, I still laugh. I know everyone thinks THEIR baby is the cutest thing on the planet, but it's really true with mine. LOL. I'm also using this one as a test to see if I'm smart enough to make the video thing work. My blogging lessons have only covered so much territory! :)

Valentine's Day 2008




This was a special day. I bought the kids each a new Webkinz since their other Webkinz was going to expire. They were so excited. I picked each kid a Webkin that I thought was special and just for them. We went to Denny's for dinner and then came home to watch a movie. It was a wonderful night.

Woodland Lake Park

It was a warm, fantastic January day.....while the snow was finally melting in Taylor, we forgot it was a different story in Pinetop. We decided to go to the park and when we got there found the playground covered in snow. It was still fun, nevertheless and took that opportunity to feed the ducks, go for a walk and just enjoy the day. The kids were so good and we had so much fun that we decided to go to McDonalds afterward and play some more. It was definitely a fantastic day!!!
