Say Monkey!

I think Marc has shared enough matching Christmas PJ pictures with everyone to know that I do like to put the kids in matching pj's from time to time.  Well, I saw these monkey pj's & knew that I had to get both the girl & boy ones for the kids to wear this summer.  They think it's kind of fun, so I guess Marc & I can use these pictures against them when they get older. :)

The Puppet Show...

Who knew that a cheesey little German Puppet show could make the kids stay quiet for 15 minutes?!?  They were extremely excited to go & the show was in English.  Ian kept looking back & pointing to things so I semi-staged this pic so the flash could go off.  He was very happy, Leah wasn't moving she was happy & mesmerized by this show.  

Yes, unmoving, quite kids!!

A very happy Ian...

After the show they had a Fairy Tale Village where the kids could do some crafts & Leah mad the bracelet she is wearing in the following picture & the kids jumped in the bouncy house.  They also had fruit out that made a nice afternoon snack.

Leah chose the banana.

Ian chose the apple.

Hope things are going well with all of you!

Easter is here!

Horray!  I found my camera.  Turns out it was in the bag with the extra Easter eggs, go figure.

So, here's a picture of the kids before they are going out to hunt for eggs at the Church easter hunt:

Ian's basket starting to fill up a little:

Leah found one to put in her basket:

Here is the one at the second Easter hunt we did on that day.  Ian got a hug from the bunny himself:

So, that's all for this time.  I do have a couple of birthday party pictures to post in the next day or two.  We have another birthday party to go to tomorrow, so I may just post all of those at the same time.

Easter is Coming!

Well, soon to our blog anyways.  I took LOTS of pictures this weekend & even got a good one of Ian with the Easter Bunny (Leah got shy).  Why aren't the up yet?  Well, I've managed to lose my camera.  So, I'll get them posted as soon as I find it. 

Hope everyone had a Blessed Holiday!


P.S.  I'm working on updating the look of our blog.  We're working on adding one of the pictures Marc took in Scotland with our blog designer, but I've done something wrong.  So, excuse the mess & I'll hopefully get it fixed soon!

The last few pictures...

Read my post on Spring first so you'll understand the rest of these pictures.  

Apparently blogger will only let me put 5 pictures in each post, so that's how we wound up with 3 posts today.  Hope everyone Enjoys the pictures as much as the kids enjoyed swinging & playing while I was trying to get the shots of them!

A few more pictures of the kids...

Read my post on Spring first so you'll understand the rest of these pictures.  

I took a couple after we got to playgroup so everyone could see how nicely Leah's hair is growing out after we cut it.

A few Spring Pictures...

At least, it feels like spring for a few days here.  Yesterday I got the kids out for play group & decided I'd better take a few pictures since Marc has been getting after me for not updating the blog lately.

The only other major development we've had here outside of a few days where we've actually reached 60 & sunshine here is that Leah is no longer wearing pull up diapers during the day!  Horray!  She decided this past weekend she wasn't going to wear them anymore, and has done pretty well so far.  A few accidents here & there, but most of the time she makes it to the bathroom first.  

So, here are a few of sunshine pics of the kids with their sunhats on:
