Mom's birthday was a week ago, and we all got together for her party yesterday.  She wanted legos for her present, so the kids could have fun :)  I love grandmas

We also had a very mild day at the kite festival this year.  There was hardly any wind until the end where it was like 30 mph!  Here is Lydia waiting for wind...

and here's Alex, he can't get his kite down the winds are so strong!  Dave had to help.

Winter in springtime

We have had a good snowstorm every week for the past month, so for the most part we're still inside playing :)

Autumn & Lydia are acting out their favorite barbie movie (princess and the pop star).  I'm not super familiar with it, but I'm pretty sure the root beer bottle is supposed to be the magic microphone...

Alex & Lydia all dressed up for their sock hop at school.  They both still love to get into character

I found this in Alex's backpack the other day.  "Alex please come to Diggers funeral.  Its at the second reeses.  It will mean a lot to me.  Love, Cami"
I asked him how the funeral went and he said it was postponed, due to snow.  The next day they couldn't find Digger (digger is a worm), I told him he had gone to a better place.

Lydia wrote this for me, she wanted to write I love Kindergarten... but got confused about how it was spelled, so changed it to Kendra.  I'll take seconds, no problem :)
"I luve Kendra my mom she is vere nise"

Finally, here's my volleyball team I played on for the last few months.  It was really fun, and hard.  They all play really well.  We had a tournament at the end and I was all giddy and excited just like in school.  I'm glad I could play.

face painting

I decided I should learn how to face paint :)  It's a useful skill that would really come in handy at fundraisers and birthday parties (right?)  Actually, I did it just for fun.
I'm not an artist, so these are a little rough.  But I thought it was awesome that I had such willing victims!

First, my favorite, the frog :)



Then I let the kids practice on me... the balloons got a little out of control :)

And this is up to interpretation, it started as a dolphin, then maybe a penguin?
anyone out there good at face painting, and can give us some pointers?
