Pumpkin patch 2012

The boys didn’t have school last Friday due to conferences.  After we talked to their teachers, we headed out to the KC Pumpkin Patch.  It was so cold!

Get ready for a lot of pictures.

We spent the 4th at VillageFest and then had my parents over for KFC and fireworks.  The fourth of July may be one of my favorite holidays.

Happy Easter 2012!

Our day went like this:

  • Easter baskets at our house, along with an egg hunt

  • Church with my family
  • Easter baskets, egg hunt and a huge, delicious lunch with my parents

  • Easter baskets, drinks and desserts with Eric’s family

I do also have a picture of the boys with the Easter bunny to put on here but it requires taking the computer upstairs to connect it to the printer/scanner.  Tomorrow, maybe?

Easter eggs

I always feel like we dye our Easter eggs at the last minute and this year was no exception:)

Spring Break 2012

Our Spring Break consisted of:

  • Sleeping in really late almost every day
  • Playing outside a ton (the weather was BEAUTIFUL)
  • Going to see The Lorax
  • Taking a day trip to the Omaha Zoo
  • Going to Union Station to see a movie about the Titanic and the Titanic Exhibition
  • Having my car towed on the way home from Union Station and paying almost $1000 on repairs
  • Playing baseball at the park with friends

Besides the car repair stuff, we had a nice and relaxing long Spring Break.

Xmas ornaments 2011

I get the boys a new Christmas ornament every year.  I went with a sports theme this year:

I wish I would have recorded past year ornaments on here!

Christmas 2011

We started out a little worried about Christmas.  There was a bad stomach virus going around Kenny’s school  that we were praying we wouldn’t get.  We really didn’t want a repeat of Christmas 2009.  But, of course, Kenny got it on the 22nd.  We made it through the 23rd and 24th without anyone else having signs of getting sick so we celebrated with my family on Christmas Eve.

Getting ready for church:

Christmas Eve at my mom and dad’s house:

Christmas morning at our house: 

Santa may have forgotten to leave anything in the dogs’ stocking.  Oops.  We decided it was probably because they have been getting on our couch while we’re gone.  Luckily I had two bones for them in the cupboard that we were able to give them.

Christmas morning at my parents:

See the stockings in these pictures?  My Grandpa Bill and Grandma Dolly had one made for everyone back when I was little.  This year, my mom made ones for Kenny, Luke and Eric so that everyone now has one.  It took her a long time and they look great. 

Christmas Day with Eric’s mom, Amanda and AJ:

Remember how I said that we thought that we had escaped that stomach virus?  I ended up throwing up every hour on the hour Tuesday night and then Eric had a mild form of it.  I’m not going to say anything about Luke not getting it because I’m afraid I’ll jinx us:)  I’m just glad that it didn’t ruin our Christmas.  And I’m really hoping we didn’t pass it on to anyone else in the family.

Shepherd

Luke’s class had their annual Christmas story today.  Luke played the part of a shepherd, like he did last year.  I tried to get him to be something different this year, like a wise man or Joseph, but he stuck to his decision.  It turned out that none of the boys wanted to be Joseph so one of the girls jumped in and played the part.  

I can’t believe this is the last time we’ll have a child in this at our preschool.   

Here’s a picture of Luke as a shepherd last year.

And here is a 2008 picture of Kenny when he was also a shepherd.
