Miss Tiny Hiney

Yes, I said tiny hiney. That has been Sarah's nickname since she was old enough to walk. The poor child has NEVER been able to keep a skirt, pants, etc. up on her skinny hips and rear. Tonight's classroom ballgame was no different! Bless her heart she couldn't hardly run for trying to keep her pants up, but she gets an "A" for effort. I'm not sure who had more fun; Sarah playing ball or J.T. cheering for her! They were all so stinking cute out there. We all had fun, and as we were leaving the gym Sarah informed us she was done doing ballet from now on she's doing basketball! Yikes! (We still have a ballet recital to get through in May and basketball season is over.) We'll have to discuss this further...

J.T. at play park

J.T. was feeling down because his "new best friend Sissy and new best friend Daddy" had gone back to school and work. So I thought a little playtime at the park would perk him up. He had a ball! At first he was leary of going down the slide, but he soon got warmed up and didn't want to leave. Here are some pictures I took of Mr. Man having a good time. He had so much fun he didn't want to leave to go pick up his "best friend, Sissy" from school! P.S.--We didn't mention to Sarah that while she was at school we were playing at the park ;-)

Let's go fly a kite!

Although it seems for the last month someone in our home has been sick with something or other, we were able to get outside at least once recently to fly kites. The kids and Chris flew the kites and, naturally, Mom (aka your's truly) was the photographer. That's okay, though, I had a really good time laughing at them having so much fun!

Poor Baby

Not only did Sarah get alot of nice presents for her birthday; she also got a nice case of haemophilus influenza! Yay. My baby girl is feeling pretty rough, and it just breaks my heart to see her so miserable. No matter how old my kids get; when they get sick, my world stops. I know it's not just us, though, just about everyone you talk to has been sick or is currently sick with something equally yucky. Bring on the warm weather, please! I don't know about anyone else, but I'm dreaming of a beach vacation...

Paintin' the!

Sarah chose the Paintin' Place for her party this year. You can see from the pictures she had a blast! Mommy didn't mind going there either ;-)

Our little girl is 6 years old!

Everyone told us, when Sarah was born, to enjoy every moment, because time flies. Well, truer words have never been spoken! It seems like only yesterday I heard her first little cry and held her for the first time. The very first words I spoke to my baby girl was, "It's okay sweet baby, Mommy's here. Mommy's gotcha."

I loved my kids before I ever laid eyes on them. Now Sarah is bigger, but she'll always be my baby (and I remind her of that often). Today when she gets an ouchie I still hug her up and tell her," Mommy's here. Mommy's gotcha." My love just grows for my family everyday!
