Here's Miss Kate showing us her true personality! She is our wild-woman!

Now this is entertainment! I left the kitchen for just a minute and came back to this! They love their brother!

TJ is such a cutie pie. He is a sweet mannered buddy!

Kate looking so lady like here!

I was so pleased. After working hard to weed out toys with broken and missing pieces, noisey toys, just plain annoying toys, and other general un-used toys, I was left with a beautifully organized play room closet.

Ahhhh . . . the pride,
the joy . . .

This morning when I awoke I thought, "I can't wait to let the kids play in the newly organized play room. Won't they love the un-cluttery feel of the room, now that they can find their best toys?"

After a few minutes of the four of them in the room, it became strangely quiet . . .

The big news around here is that Samuel has learned to ride a "big boy bike" with no training wheels! We are all seriously proud of him! Kiah's riding her trike more and even Kate's trying to get into the act by walking a scooter around the block!

It was fun to celebrate Brian's 33rd birthday this weekend. The kids and I "invented" a cake! Seeing as Brian doesn't like regular cake, we made one out of ice cream sandwiches. After cutting them in half, stacking them into the shape I wanted, I iced it and the kids helped to decorate it. We threw some candles on top and voila - ice cream sandwich cake! We pretty much just dug into it. The greatest part was that there were no plates to clear!

This is really just a test. I didn't intend to create a blog today, but since I did I figure I might as well try to figure out how to use one.
