I'll show you

Dear Mom,
Since you won't let me paint my own nails...well I'll show you just how creative I can be...See permanent marker works just as well as nail polish.
Love Lily

The Big 5

Eric turned 5 yesterday! Where in the world has the time gone? It's hard for me to believe that my Little Man has turned 5. He has had quite the fun time celebrating it too. He got to have a pizza and cupcake party at school with all his friends. And then he got to have a Lightening McQueen party with his friends from church.Everyone got to color and decorate their own car...Go swimming get lots of treats from the pinyataand eat yummy cake.
On Saturday we had a family party.Started off with opening presents.
Eric and I went out to lunch and then he got to go to Target and spend his "million dollars" that Grammy and Papa sent him. It's was so much fun having one on one time with Eric. He is such a sweet little boy. How did I get so lucky. After lunch we picked up Skip and Lily and went to the movies to see Toy Story 3- loved it! When we got to Chili's for dinner Eric asked me if he could get steak because he's 5 now and it was his birthday. So Eric and I shared a steak- little guy ate more of it then I did! The Chili's crew brought out a molten chocolate cake and sang to him. He kept trying to tell us it was his cake and we couldn't eat any of it- he even grabbed 2 spoons and started digging in. It was a really fun day, and I have been incredibly blessed with having Eric as my boy. He is forever telling me that he loves me. He helps me and has already told me that he will take care of the baby. He helps Lily and takes great care of her. He's even yelled at some boys at the pool who got to close to "his sister".
Love you Eric! Happy Birthday Bud!

Yes I have gained some weight...but it's good weight...it's a BABY!!!! Number 3 is cooking away and will be done in Dec of this year. I'm thinking it's a boy due to the months of morning sickness, but Eric and Lily insist that it is a baby sister...we'll see who's right

Lily's New Love

Lily has been asking forever for a bike. So I finally took her to good ol' walmart and got her a bike.
Eric was being very helpful in showing Lily how it's done...he was nice enough to ride in circles around her...
After 1 day of sitting on it- she figured it out and is now a pro. The only thing she wants to do any more is ride her bike.Plus now that she knows what she's doing- her and Eric love to race!

School is Out!

Yesterday was the last day of school! When I went to pick up Eric he came running towards me- as soon as he got close enough he yelled "Mom is it summer vacation now?!" To kick off the start of our fun summer I took the kids to a indoor play place called A Latte Fun. We were there for 3 1/2 hours. And just when we were getting ready to go- Mother Goose shows up to paint faces. So we stayed a little longer.I came home with a Superhero...and a bunny rabbit...(to bad the kids couldn't keep their hands off their faces till I could get home to the camera!)
Yea for sleeping in (that's 7:00 around here) and hanging out watching cartoons! Yea for not having to rush the kids out the door to get Eric to school on time! Yea for laying out at the pool! And yea for getting to hang out with my cute kids!
