I know its been forever since I updated this blog. I’m not going to go on and on about it. I’m just going to try to do better 🙂

We HAVE been taking lots and lots of photos of the kids, and I thought that I would just start with something fun. A few weeks ago we went to the Dogwood festival. Every year our town throws a Spring festival, called the Dogwood. There are loads of booths selling everything from delicious eats to quirky crafts. We always get Kettle Corn. With four kids, we could drop a lot at the festival, so we decided to pick one thing that we could all enjoy together. We really enjoy family days, and want to try to keep it, NOT all about getting and buying fun, but enjoying the time we get to hang out together. I’m quite proud of this family date, I think I did well.

We got the biggest bag of Kettle Corn they have ($5.00) and then stroll through the sea of people and check out all the booths. It was sunny on Friday, and didn’t rain until the last day. Usually it rains more during the Dogwood. Hopefully it was a success to all the patrons that came in and set up their goods.

After seeing all we could, we took the kids out to get ice cream. I had a gift card so it only cost us 34 cents for 4 scoops of Ice cream!!  Grand total= $5.34 Not too shabby I think.

They have grown so much since the last post, and have such funny personalities. We are so blessed and really enjoy them a lot. Here are some fun pictures of our mini family day. Enjoy!


Buzz-Cut Day. April 21, 2010

So…it’s April. I’ve been neglecting this blog, I know. and I really have no good reason. so I’ll spare you the ” oh my gosh it’s been so long” schpeel. It’s my blog, so I don’t really need to apologize. right?

Actually, I was sitting at the computer doing business stuff (& trying to drown out Barney..ahhh! Why does he sing/talk?! It’s AWFUL!) and thought maybe I should put up some photos on my much forgotten blog.

We (meaning Jonathan, I’m mostly moral support) cut the boys hair, to save some money. I mean seriously, I’m not paying $15 for someone to buzz my kids’ head. forget it. If you do, more power to you. The boys are less than thrilled about it, and Naomi is always worried we are going to buzz her head next. So it’s a good deal of drama in our house on Buzz-cut day. But the result is worth it. Here are some photographs from this “fun” event. Enjoy.
