Weekend with the kids...

The last weekend in January, Michael went skiing with three other guys in New Mexico.  One of the other guys was Rusty, my best friend Chandra's husband...got all that?  Anyway, Chandra, me and all our kids spent the weekend together while our husbands were away.  It was crazy!!!!!!!!  But, I'm glad we did it together and not alone!  Piper loves babies right now and she would have carried little Miss Evelyn around the whole time if we let her!  Don't let her sweet smile fool you in these pictures though!  She was ornery towards Lilly! (big sigh...mothering has been tough with this little-big miss, but that's another novel for another day!) We didn't get a picture of Briggs and Sophia!  She loves him and he's scared to death of her!  Ha!!  That might just be a perfect match!!!  haha!


Briggs painted for the first time ever last week.  He did good until the end and his hair was blue!

Snow Day!

It snowed in Oklahoma for the first time this winter; with the exception of that very minimal dusting we had last month!  Anyway, Piper was suppose to attend a Valentine's Party at her school today even though she normally goes on Thursday.  She was too excited about the snow that she didn't want to go!  I even tried bribing her into going for the candy and she said no!  Ha!  She's nuts, but I wasn't going to force her into going!  She did have a ball in the snow for 30 minutes!  She, unlike her brother, never complained and had a big smile on her face the entire time.  He cried the entire 10 minutes we were out there!  Once Piper was done, she never asked to go back out again!  She's wearing actual snow boots and a pair of ski bibs that are a wee bit too short for her long body but they worked for her today!  She has been talking about snow ever since it got cold!

She has been cracking me up with her funny things lately.  She says "actually" a lot and things that seem big to me.  I'm just waiting to hear her say, "In conclusion..."  Ha!  Today, she said, "Mom, you know I don't like boys?  You know why I don't like boys? (me shaking my head) Because I love, LOVE boys! (followed with lots of giggles!)  I'm leaving now to purchase locks for the doors and bars for her windows...Gee!  

Library Fun

Two times a month they have "Music with Susan" at the Edmond library and Piper loves it!  The only thing is, you have to call on the 1st and the 15th of each month to sign up so my brain has to remember; otherwise, we cannot attend.  Space is limited!  And, it's not geared for children as young as Briggs but he has fun!  These are the pictures from our very first time to attend.  (Granted, you cannot see my children's faces, but look carefully and you will see them!)  And, please note that Piper's hair has grown long enough we can put it in a ponytail.  This is a BIG deal in our house!  She wants long hair and understands that she cannot have it as long as Rapunzel's hair!  Ha!  During this music class, everything is to the beat of a song they are singing or listening to on CD.  It's fun for my little ones who like to get their groove on!

And this is what she looked like after nap that day!!!  Ha!!!
