Teeth, Teeth and More Teeth!!

Or lack of teeth, I guess! =) About 2 weeks ago Dash lost one of his top teeth. Just yesterday Erna was riding off of a bike ramp in our driveway, but she didn't quite enough speed to make it all the way over. She flipped over and landed on her face! Her legs and knees are all scratched up and her upper lip is scabbed and red. Poor baby! But she looks soooo cute and her other top tooth is very, very wiggly. She hasn't stopped flashing her new toothless smile and whenever you see it you can't help but smiling too.

Both of the toothless kids! Are they adorable or what?!

Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's day Mommy! (A 2 days late) I hope that you had a great day and I meant to post this on Sunday. You are the best, most amazing, patient(most of the time) loving, caring, thoughtful, sympathetic, smiley, happy, playful, smart, mommy ever in a million years and I love you soooooo much.  Thank you for all the work you do around the house laundry, cleaning, teaching, cooking, driving us around, doing projects with us, making our birthdays special, packing to go on trips, lesson plans...... But most importantly thank you for loving God with all your heart and leading us on the right path through his word, I have learned so much about loving God and serving others and relying on the true Savior through you. You aren't perfect or always a good role model but I still love you sooooooooo much. It is just one of those things you can't put into a word. I love you Mommy.

Happy Birthday to my Sweet 10 yr old

We are so blessed to be the parents of Oggie.  He is such a sweet boy.  He has such a gift of taking care of others.  He is amazingly tender with his baby sister.  He loves books and music, but also being active and playing sports. We see God working in his heart and he has a desire to learn more about Jesus.  He is a deep thinker and has asked us many questions regarding the Bible and what faith is.  We are looking forward to what God has planned for him this next year.  Happy birthday sweet boy!

Today is a big day for Dash!! His top right tooth has been loose for days now, and it was finally ready to pull! Mommy is very brave, I highly doubt I could pull bloody, fleshy teeth out of somebody's mouth!  So now Mr. Toothless is walking around the house showing everyone his new toothless smile! :) We love you buddy!!!!

Easter and other Hennhouse happenings......

I have been planning to write a post since we got back from Minneapolis in March but as you can tell, I just hadn't gotten around to it. With that being said, it's good to be back to writing again.  We went to Minneapolis in March and had a BLAST! We got to see our cousins, including little baby Bebo, who is just the sweetest little thing!

We all stayed in an empty house with only 2 bedrooms but it couldn't have been more fun.We were very greatful for a place(thanks to good friends of my Auntie L's) to stay where we could all be together and just hang out. With all the cousins jam-packed in there we were all bumping into each other and running around and being just plain crazy! There was this looooong staircase that all the kids were sliding down on their rears until somebody got hurt and then that game was done.

 So the kids found other things to do such as....playing legos with a beloved cousin
                            Or coloring pretty pictures to hang on the fridge at home.......(By the way, even though almost everybody loves the Packers in our family, some family members a.k.a.Mom, Dash, Bear LOVE the Vikings. And since we were in Minnesota, Dash decided that is was the perfect time to don the purple vikings shirt, and I agree.)
                      Pausing for photos on the dangerous stairway.......
              Holding little Squeakers................
                 Taking more random pictures................
                     Or maybe watch a short movie. As you can tell, we just adore our cousins. The next day we hung out at the mall and that was no short 2 hour trip to the mall, this was an all day thing. There were 10 adults and 9 kids so each parent took 2 kids or so and we called it good.
 This is most likely the only thing Oggie really enjoys at the mall. He probably spent and hour or so in there!
 The girls had a great time at the American Girl Doll store.
And Dad had a amazing time with his dear friend Mr. Chicken.
Just messing! There was this costume and magic trick store and this was in the doorway. I couldn't miss the chance of getting dad's picture next to this waaaaay larger that life sized chicken! :)
 Me, Oggie, and Dash all got to climb on this huge(4 stories) climbing structure. None of us are afraid of heights so we made it to the top. Such fun!

We had a fantastic time with our family and can't wait to see them again!

We came back home and had no major things going on. I was in a play so my family came and saw me in that. I had sooo much fun doing it and the play turned out really well.

  We went to our Grandparents house for Easter and dyed eggs, hunted for easter baskets and stuffed ourselves silly with ham and green beans and potatoes all made by my grandparents! yum!

 We went on a walk to the Rose Garden and it was wonderful to see all the new life popping up all over. Spring!

It was fun dying easter eggs, but it was even more fun eating them!!

  All in all, we have had a great past month or so. We had our friends over who just brought home their little girl from Ethiopia, and have been taking advantage of this warm weather and playing a lot outside.
Signing off :)
