Pinewood Derby Anyone!!!

Jacob is his second year of Cub Scouts. They had their annual Pinewood Derby yesterday. Jacob didn't win, but we had fun anyways. I can't believe I didn't get one pic of him with his car. What a bad momma!!

The girls entered the sibling race. There was only one other sibling that participated and of course she won.

But they all had fun spending the whole entire day from 10am to 2pm at the church where they hold the meetings.

Collage for daycare-project & sick kids :(

Here the collage I made for Lukas's project for daycare. I included some pics of him as a baby, in the summer at his bday party (at the lake), and of course the new valentine pics.
Today I took Lukas and Payton to the doctor. Payton was up last night quite a bit complaining of an earache and she had a fever also. So I knew I needed to get her checked out. Surprisingly the doctor's office was open today. So we got in at 2pm, and what do you know, Payton has a double ear infection and Lukas has bronchitis. They are both on antibiotics now and hopefully they will
get better soon.

Citizen Soldier

We have gotten quite a bit of snow here. It has also been very very very cold. Brrrrr!!!!

I have been trying a different hair style for now too.

I am growing to love this song. It is called Citizen Soldier by 3 Doors Down. I hadn't heard it prior to going to the movies last week. There was a big commercial advertising the Army and National Guards, playing this song. Lillian and Jacob were singing, it while hearing it for only the second time, today when we went to the movies again to see Hotel for Dogs. It was a really cute movie. Payton on the other hand, just like her mom, was crying in the middle of the movie. The dogs got taken to the pound. She must really be a dog lover.

One from the Valentine Card picture section. . . . . . .

Love the new movie theatre!!

Lillian, Jacob, Payton, me and Erick took the kids to the movies last night. Lillian and Jacob had gift certs burning a hole in their pockets. So we went to see Bedtime Stories. The kids had a good time and the movie was really good. Of course, I had to take some pics too.

Random thoughts . . . . .

#1--I know that Lukas is obsessed with Mickey Mouse. Which seems really weird cause I always loved Pooh.

#2--I just finished reading Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I absolutely loved it. I can't wait to read the next one in the series, which is New Moon.

#3--I start my spring semester at school on Monday. I am getting nervous, even though I have already been there for one semester already. New classes, new teachers, new classmates oh how nerve racking.

#4--Lillian and Jacob's next grade cards come home soon. Hope they are going to get some good grades. (better than progress reports anyways)

#5--I hate laundry and dishes!!! They never are totally done.

#6--I need to get a YMCA membership so my family will get some exercise.

#7--I need a new wardrobe. I am getting sick of the same clothes.

#8--I need new linoleum in the bathroom. Can't wait to get it changed.

#9--I can't wait for spring.

#10--I need to start taking more videos and pics of my big kids. They are getting so big so fast.
