last day of spring break

we have had great weather all week long for spring break, but the last day (and the first day of spring) turned out to be winterish out there.  so what do you do when it's in the 40s and cloudy?  you stay inside.  and you dye eggs. 

and you show off your new eggs for this year to go on the mantle. 

and then you say a prayer for the sunshine and warm weather to come back!

weekend fun

while the big one was busy hanging out with the boys, not sleeping, and pretending like the water at the lake wasn't cold,

the other two were pulling out a big win on senior night in starkvegas! it wasn't a BIG win.  but it was a win.  and for those of us who know what it's like to be a bulldog, a win is always a good thing! too bad coach didn't put wes in the game.  he was ready!

rainy, random tuesday

you see that solar system?  isn't it pretty?  i have to say that i was a little bit excited to finish the third and final solar system!!  ha!  although, it is kind of easy when the third time rolls around, and you know exactly how to go about it. reed made sure that each planet was painted just right, and he was quite proud of his work.  until.....he came home talking about another kid's project in which the sun was a lightbulb "that actually turns on and the planets spin around it!"  yeah well.  mama's never been known for that right side of the brain stuff.  at least he knows his planets!

G's birthday was in february, and we could not let it go by without some baskin robbins. 

i like to shoot, but i do not like the cold.  so, i'm quite thankful for poppas that will take my people into the woods.  apparently william let a big one get away back in january, but maybe he can get his revenge next winter!

i looked outside the other day to find a backyard X games competition going on. 

wes and knox are the daring middle children, and i'm not sure that they should be allowed to hang out together.  wes might be needing his 5 set of stitches if they keep this up!  but they did at least grab a baseball helmet.  safety first!  

after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, i finally bought a new dishwasher.  i do hate to spend money on appliances.  joyless spending.  anyway, we had magnets of the united states and word magnets on our old dishwasher, and reed was putting them all on our new one.  this was his first sentence.  should i be worried?

happy march, y'all!!!
