Random stuff


Hey there, did everyone have a good weekend?  We're doing pretty good here.  I'm launching into a new week with a positive attitude.  I'm really excited about Lance's private Speech Therapy session on Wednesday.  Anyway, here are some of our recent pictures. 

Clarice looking cute as always...

A basket I put together for a bridal shower I attended on this past Saturday...

Hope it's not too early for twinkle lights...

Don't bother with this one...I listened to the first four discs of the twelve disk audio version of the book.  It started out good, but just got to be too over the top scary...and this is a Young Adult book!

Yes, we have a whale in our living room...


I hope you all have a great week.  Talk to you soon!

Lance turns six


Well our big boy has turned six!  I am so thankful for Lance.  He is growing and developing more each day.  It is so exciting when he learns a new word that interests him and he goes up to me about ten times shouting it.  His recent favorite is one he picked up from a Mighty Machines video..."Rush Hour!"   :)

Here are a few recent pictures....


 And here are a few from his birthday party...



I love you Lance!

P.S...Lance has a private Speech Therapy appointment next week!  :)

Life Lately...Back to School


Now that Clarice is also going to school two days a week,  Lance now says, "Thank you for the schools" when he prays.   :)

When I picked up Clarice one afternoon this week I brought her a homemade chocolate chip oatmeal cookie.  I just hope this doesn't set some sort of precedent though...
  
I finally got around to bringing in Teacher Treats for CC's teachers...Nothing says "Thank You for taking care of my child" like a $5 Starbucks gift card!


Getting all the end-of-day sillies out...



As always, I'm making an effort to read to the kids.  The other day I also set out Clarice's animals and had her "read" them a story...too cute!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

CC's first week of preschool


Last week Clarice began preschool.  She will be there two days a week.  It is at the same place that we go to church, so she had no problems at all as she calmly walked past her hysterically crying friends.  I grinned and nodded my head as I looked at the other moms while explaining, "we go to church here."  ;)

Our only "problem" was that her backpack wasn't big enough.  I was able to get a cute one from Goodwill for only $1.88.  Here are some pictures of her with each of them so you decide...





 
I'm so excited for my sweet baby.  I know she'll enjoy spending a little time with her teachers and friends!  Talk to you all soon!

Clarice is two


We were so happy to celebrate Clarice's birthday this past weekend.  She enjoyed eating cake, hanging out with family, and being the life of her own party.  It has been fun to look back on two years worth of pictures too.  Here are a few...















 





Happy Birthday Clarice.  We love you so much!
