It Was Time

for Sy's first haircut.
Personally, I love his curls. But the "she" and "her" comments were starting to be said, (not that he looks at all girly!) so it was time to get the scissors out!
 We were both a bit nervous as I strapped him into the highchair this morning.
 I mean, this is one active little boy!
 Wow! That hair was looooooong!
Goodbye curls....
(Oh, and that sucker that he's holding? Didn't help my cause AT ALL!)
 It was a little touch and go for a while. When he got hair in his mouth he started screaming and gagging, but we both made it through.
 Having a haircut turned him into a little boy! I know it had to be done, but I think it's going to take a while to get used to!

It's Sarah's Birthday!

My sweet Sarah turns 11 today!
She wanted a pink poodle cake so we found one online and I copied it for her.
 I had many little helpers to eat any wandering marshmallows and lick all the frosting knives.
(They are always so helpful! hehe!)
She loves it!
 But I'm not surprised!
She's such an easy-to-please sweetheart! She has a happy heart and a loving nature. I hope the world is always as kind to her as she is to others. 

Happy 11th Birthday, my Sarah!

We awoke to a bonus snow day!
 At first, Josiah was not impressed.
 But it wasn't long before he joined in the fun!
 They made a snowman,
 and Megan even made a snow bunny!
 Everybody joined in a big snowball fight.

What a fun start to Spring!

Other Conversations Heard on St. Patty's

Leah- "Today is Patrick's Day. We have to wear green"
 Why are we wearing green, Leah?
Leah- "Because that's what color pants Patrick wears! Tomorrow is going to be Spongebob Day. Then we have to wear brown." 
Brown? Why brown?
Leah- "Because that's what color pants he wears! Then it's going to be Tangled Day. Then we will have to wear purple!"
 Abby- "Sarah said we have to wear green today or Patrick won't like us!"
Ethan- "It's not that he won't like us, it's that he'll pinch us!"
Sarah- "I didn't say that! I said I'll pinch you!"

Leah, On Wearing Green

Me to Leah- "You have to wear green today because it's Saint Patrick's Day!"
 Leah (worried)- "But I don't want to be Patrick!"
Me- "What? You're not going to be Patrick!"
 Leah, ignoring me- "So when do we get to go to Patrick's?"
Me- "Ummmm..."
 Leah, continuing- "Patrick is in the Spongebob movie...."
 Happy Saint Patrick's Day!
(where we won't be visiting Patrick!)

4 Months

Can it be?
Has it really been 4 months since Anna came to join us?
Anna's red curls

  Isn't it funny how that is with babies? That you can't believe the time goes so quickly and yet it feels like they've been here forever?
This past month wasn't a totally easy one. Most of us got sick, including Anna. She handled the fever amazingly well and managed to stay pretty happy through it all!

She's playing with toys and hanging out in her Exersaucer.
She's very attached to her mommy!!
She weighs exactly 14 pounds.
She loves to "talk".
 She's a total sweetheart!

Celebrating Meg

Last night we celebrated Megan's latest achievement:
being inducted into National Honor Society.
 Scott and I joined her for the evening celebration. Baby Anna wasn't thrilled at being left behind, but she survived! Becoming a member of NHS is quite the accomplishment at the kids' school! To be accepted you must truly excel in all the necessary areas.
 No problem for this girl!
She deserved to be celebrated!

The Change of Seasons

The snow that fell this morning is quickly melting. Tulips are poking up through the dirt. 
And basketball came to an end.
Megan joined the season late, but was able to play with the JV team. She did great and had lots of fun!
 Seth was a key player for his team. He had a great last game where he scored 14 points!

It's official! Spring is coming!

On to baseball!
