Sponge Rollers

About a month ago Eliza wanted curly hair. I told her when I was a little girl my mom would put my hair in rollers and I would sleep in them then wake-up curly. I must've said that we should get some. Well, she's been begging me since to buy her some. So, on Saturday we invested in sponge rollers! I put her hair up after her bath on Saturday night while she watched a movie. the results on Sunday morning were perfect!!!! :)

***Happy #7 Samuel***

Sam had an extra fun birthday with the day off for President's Day! Eric took the day off, and Grandma & Anna were here for a visit. They went sledding, played Wii, watched movies, and had French Toast for breakfast! All his favorites!!

Sam really wanted a Star Wars t-shirt....he was so excited!

Last night we celebrated at Aunt Mary's with my family and all of his cousins. Such a fun night!!! Sam requested pitaschio cake....YUM!!! A true family favorite! We were all very excited that he chose it! :) And I loved making it!!!!

Blog, what blog??? :)

Okay, so I haven't posted for a LONG time. It kinda got to the point where I wasn't even sure where to start. Do I go back? Or do I just start from the here & now? I'm think the here & now! :)

SO, here is a picture that Sam took a few weeks ago of the kids...

first bike ride

Caroline had her first bike ride tonight when we all went to DQ for ice cream after dinner. Sam rode his bike, and the twins rode in the bike trailer. I'm sure this will be the first of many bike rides this summer!!! She loved it!

Princess Caroline

Eric decided to dress Caroline up this morning. She didn't seem to mind!

(Yes, she's playing Yahtzee...she's quite advanced! :))

Not sure what this face is all about, but it's funny!!!!

Caroline is 11 months now and has 12 teeth!! Only a few more weeks and we'll be having a birthday party for her! Crazy how fast this year has gone.

sam turns six

This weekend we had a few birthday parties for Sam. A small friend party with a few kids from the neighborhood on Saturday morning, a party with my family today after church, then another tonight with Grandpa, Gramma, & Aunt Hope.

We had a "Donut Party" yesterday. Sam loves donuts from Tim's Bakery, and I was looking for a simple party theme. So, complete with "Pin the Donuthole on the Donut" game and the "Donuthole Toss" (aka, tossing little bean bags into a pool intertube), it was a very easy party!! Oh, and Uncle Ben did his famous balloon art....always a huge hit with kids!

For Sunday's party, Sam insisted that I make the same farm cake I made for his 3rd birthday. That was fine with me because that's a yummy cake from scratch, and very easy to decorate....actually, Sam & Lora were the ones to decorate it.

Happy #6 Sammers!!!!!!
