Swimming - New session

Well, to begin with...I apologize for being a blog slacker this past week. We really didn't do anything worth telling about or taking pictures of. Unless of course you count my trip down our stairs on Saturday...If you do, you'll have to just ask :)

Tonight marked the first night of a new session in Swim Lessons. The boys were sooooo excited to start going again. As you know, they are now eels! And much to my surprise, they start working on things in the deep end as eels!!! They both did awesome!

Revenge is on my mind...

My parents just came back from Punta Cana, and brought the boys these little drums....and boy do they like them! We listened to them for a looooonnnnngggg time last night after we got home from their house. I've decided to start plotting revenge on them (my parents) might not be today or tommorrow, but soon. So beware Mom & Dad!!!

Happy Birthday Figley Girls!

We went to Avery and Adelyn Figley's birthday party this past Saturday night. The girls birthdays are only 8 days apart, so they do their birthday parties together (for now).

All the kids gathered around the girls as they opened their presents Singing Happy Birthday

One of Avery's gifts was a Tea Set...I'm not sure if Nick was just thirsty and saw a cup, or if he really was participating in the tea party! Regardless, Daddy was not happy! :)

After the Birthday festivities, some of us stuck around...the kids (and there were a lot of them) watched a movie, while the adults played a couple games of "Catch Phrase" Girls vs Guys, and the Girls won again!!
Happy Birthday Avery and Adi!

Trey's Dance Moves

Video definitely doesn't do this justice, but I just had to share it! Trey decided to break out his killer dance moves last night for us. He OBVIOUSLY got his moves from his Dad (I'm sticking to that story!)

Do my boys know how to relax or what?

Nick's Pictures of Mommy

Yesterday, Nick walked into the living room with the camera (not sure how he got it...) and wanted to take pictures of me to put on the 'puter...and you can imagine how excited I was to do this.. So I let him take the pictures in hopes that he would just forget about the computer part. Not a chance! He insisted that I put them on. Well there were several more, but these were the only two where you could make out a person.

Trey's Flashback

I've always thought this was such a sweet picture of Trey. I look back through all of these old pictures, and wish we had a blog back then to share with everyone! Have a great weekend!

Swim Update

The boys had their last night of swimming lessons tonight. They had quite an audience! All 4 grandparents were there, great grandma Betty, Uncle Steve...and of course Mommy & Daddy. They both graduated from Pike to Eel! Afterwards we all went to Bob Evans for supper. Sadly, forgotten camera = no pictures.

Grandma & Grandpa's House

One of my Christmas gifts from Bill was an automatic starter for my vehicle. I just had to call and make the appointment to have it installed. Ironically, I had it done yesterday, on the warmest day of the year :) The boys and I spent the day at my parents house while they were doing this. Here are some pictures from the afternoon:

Nick loves to help with anything, so he was sweeping the floor. I don't think my Mom minded this at all! Some brotherly love

Uncle Steve was hanging out with us too!

And finally a picture of Grandpa Jim, Nick, Grandma Cathy, and Trey

Elmo is Exhausting!

This picture is a couple months old, but I realized I didn't post it. Trey fell asleep "reading" his Elmo book

Sunday Morning Breakfast

I took this picture at the Rambler's Roost this morning during breakfast. How perfect that there is a rooster right beside Bill's head in the background! Of course there are roosters everywhere in this place - it might freak you out if you think about it too much. Trey hit his head on the edge of the table, and they made an icepack for him. We're VIP's...don't be jealous! haha!
