Time flies

It must since I haven't blogged since March 2. Where has the month gone? Well, it's been spent busy here. We went to St. Louis where we visited the Butterfly house, Magic House and the Zoo. After that we went on up to Chicago for a day so I could mark off one of my new year's resolutions and see the Vivian Mair Photography exhibit. It's a little like going home for me when I go to Chicago. I love it and just can't get enough of the life that thrives in that city!
As I was there I took the time to just take some pictures and I managed to take the best one I've probably ever taken. I can't wait to show it to you.

There was St. Patrick's Day, which is always a favorite around here and it turned out to be a nice day, so a picnic at the parade with my youngest and Patrick. Lexi wore the little white shamrock shirt that Grandma made her last year. It was soo cute... then it got grape juice spilled all down and I was crushed, but I've recently discovered an amazing stain cleaner. I used it at my sister's house to get red jell-o out of Zoe's pink/white Easter Dress. The shirt is now wearable again with no signs of grape juice. So, here it is....

Then came Spring Break, or Spring Recess, which was spent coloring on sidewalks, riding on bikes, time spent at parks and shooting guns at Grandpa's house and even a special trip to the movie theater to watch Yogi Bear. It was a good week. I admit I was a little nervous to have the girls both together again under the same roof for 24 hours a day once again for a week. It went great! Yes, they fought and teased and made each other cry, but then they played and they wrestled and they giggled and that was even better! I can't wait for summer now!

Pictures of all to be posted soon.So, that's what I've been doing, what about you?

School Fundraiser take 4

Yes, that's right. We've done 4 fundraisers for Zoe's school. I wonder what they are thinking. Where does this money go to and why aren't our taxes enough? Any one else wonder that? And are we supposed to just have different people for each fundraiser? Again, hitting up the same people for each one. I tell you it's getting to where people have got to dread seeing me and Zoe coming. Anyways... this fundraiser at least got her some great prizes. Here they are. The video is great. It's of the dancing pig. It's soo funny, but soo loud! the girls love it though.

Plus the best thing about this fundraiser was the prize she worked so hard to get.... sell 15 discount cards and win a limo ride to Cici's pizza! Well, she's going to the pizza buffet- "in a really long car". Way to go!
