Livia was having trouble smiling naturally because of the lipstick!
Trey was feeling a little left out of all the picture taking!
As a tradition, I always make the kids candy leis...I usually do flowers too, but didn't have enough hands this year!
Then off to the ice cream shop for after recital ice cream (and corn dogs this night...they were all hungry!).
(by the way, Aurianna looks so old in this picture...ahhhh, she is growing up way to fast.)Livia was just tired...that girl stays up past her bed time of eight o'clock...and watch out! Trey didn't mind though...he was just enjoying his dog!

This is Livia's fix for not wanting to wear tights, but wanting to wear a skirt. Pants. It looks hilarious and I try to talk her out of it, but she thinks that it looks beautiful...my own little Fancy Nancy(Livia!).
I was in love with last week! Finally nice, spring days. The kids played outside endlessly! We got out the bikes, went to the park and covered all visible cement in chalk...it was bliss! Oh and my windows...they were all wide open...it just made me so happy inside! (sorry for all of the pictures on my blog...I kind of like to take a lot!!!)

(Yesterday(Friday), Livia turned on the water first thing in the morning and it kind of sputtered out when she first turned it on, she told me that she thinks that the leprechaun must of messed our water up when he was washing his hands!)

I am making these for my Visiting Teaching sisters this week! They are so cute!
and I am making these with the kids!
This looks like a cute project too!
There are many more...but I think that I will stick to these for right now! I hope you all have a wonderful St. Paddy's day tomorrow! Livia is so excited, she told me this morning..."Mom, we really need to catch that little Leprechaun, we need some GOLD!!!" I agree completely!!!

I have been in the mood....the mood to make some huge messes...and it has rubbed off onto my kids! This has been a good and a bad thing...the good, we have had a blast, the bad, it takes a lot of work to clean up a good, fun mess! We have baked, colored, play dohed, made forts and plenty of little messes in between! I got out all of the painting stuff the other day and let the kids go at it! They created some beautiful Spring pictures, hoping that Mother Nature would get a clue!
(Aurianna is so thrilled to have her picture taken once again!)
Yesterday, everyone took their messes into their own hands. I woke up to the sound of cheerful voices coming from the kitchen. I came down stairs (it was 6:45). The girls were on the counter mixing up their very own cookies. They had the cookbooks out and everything. I have no idea how long they had been up. And oh the mess...flour all over the floor and the chairs and the kids. It was one of those great mornings when an hour feels like it goes by in 15 minutes. But we did make it to school on time!
(For some reason Aurianna is wearing Livia's PJs)It had been a long day...Tad was finishing a paper (1 1/2 more classes to go!!!) and I was ready to snuggle up and watch a little Ugly Betty (I know I probably shouldn't be, but I am addicted). I guess the dog was feeling a little left out (maybe i should have let him paw paint!). I brought him in from out back and this is what I found...
My husband saved the day by bringing me a dozen red roses! Thanks honey! As for my mess making mood...I think tomorrow we will play with ublick!

This year I was happy to see that they were celebrating by having everyone dress up as their favorite character in their favorite book! My girls still wanted to pay their respects to the great Dr. by being a Who from Who Ville! (Livia had a blast getting ready!)
The kids all had a blast though! They invited Fancy Nancy, The Big Bad Wolf and the Hungry Caterpillar to come read their stories to the kids! They had a story book parade and everyone got a fun prize for coming dressed up!
They gave away prizes and Trey won! He got this
And all of the kids got to pick out their own book!
This is our cute librarian! She always does such cute things!
Trey looks more like Linus from Charlie Brown because he had a yucky wart removed off of his foot right before the party. He wouldn't let me put shoes on him and I had to find pants that were too short so that it didn't touch it. The wart wasn't really that big...but this is what we woke up to this morning
This was his head last October...the kid didn't even cry as they were numbing and stapling his head! The doctors were amazed! By the time he is done, he could be his own character in one of Dr. Seuss' books!

After the museum, we met everyone else at the pizza place! We had a blast catching up with everyone!
