Special Days for Michael June 12, 2009

We are doing fun things here and there this summer instead of Michael going to camp. He kept asking to go bowling and finally I took him. He had so much fun! Check out his skills!

Michael's PreK Graduation June 9, 2009















































































Michael did such a wonderful job at his graduation. He recited his lines loud and clear.."
Cockle Doodle Doo, Cockle Doodle Doo, I'm the rockin' rooster baby, Tell me, who are you! We were so proud of him and he was definitely proud of himself! I was definitely fighting back the tears!

June 4, 2009



You have Mia posing as if she is on America's Next Top Model and then you have Veronica dialing and talking on her pretend phone. I hope to get a shot of Veronica trying to hold the phone to her ear with her shoulder. It cracks me up every time she does it. The girls are just growing up so fast!

More from the Pow Wow May 24, 2009




Yes, that is a fox, not alive of course!

The Pow Wow! May 24, 2009





We were introduced to the "Pow Wow" by a friend this year. The Indians sold their goods, entertained us and exposed us to a part of our heritage.

Fun At the Zoo! May 20, 2009






Mia wasn't able to come on this zoo trip, but next time will be her turn.
We had a great time! I had to put the picture of the polar bear up. I think this was my best photo of a polar actually doing something. Michael was right up front getting a great look. Michael also got to have a pony ride! Veronica, crazy girl, kept chasing the animals in the petting zoo. She wanted to look right into their faces. Isabella was just along for the ride. This time next year she will be running around the petting zoo also!

Mia and Isabella May 18, 2009







I have no idea what these two were watching, but whatever it was kept them quiet so that I could get a few things done!



New Family Business..RUN by Training Station May 15, 2009













































So we now have our 5th kid.."the sneaker store" as the kids call it. Phil is working everyday and very hard. This is the one kid he gets to take care of all by himself. His customer service is great and business is good. If you need sneakers, come on in. He will take care of you. There is another picture here..It's a model of the upcoming gym called The Training Station. That will be our 6th kid.

Big Brother and Tiny Sister May 9, 2009


Michael always wants to hold Miss Isabella..the rules are sit on the couch and you can hold her. He realizes more and more everyday that he is the oldest and is allowed to do some things that his sisters are not. He sometimes has the nerve to imitate Isabella's cry. Boy oh boy! I tell him, "there is only one baby in this house and it isn't you!" He just says, "okay, okay"!

Mia and the Paper Glasses May 7, 2009














Here we go again with the Paper Glasses. This is one of Mia's highlights from school. You know she had a great day when she comes home smiling from ear to ear because she has on her glasses! Mia's teachers didn't really how happy these made her.

C'mon Mommy! May 6, 2009


Veronica is really trying to motivate me to get off my duff and exercise. I really want to, but I can't do much of anything until everyone else goes to sleep and I have the whole first floor to myself! The kids try and step with me, so that's not going to work. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way!

Isabella May 5, 2009


I really like this picture!

Veronica and Isabella May 5, 2009


Veronica loves Isabella. She is always trying to kiss her and in this picture, really trying to entertain her. Phil makes fun of Veronica with that hair of hers. Whenever I braid her hair, she sleeps on it and she wakes up looking like Coolio. She is still cute to me!

Isabella loses her...May 3, 2009















....battle with the sandman. I think I was sitting at the computer and she was watching Barney. Veronica has already gone down for nap, so there were no interruptions. She is very comfortable in her Bumbo seat. Everyone should have a Bumbo!

Mia, The Entertainer and Isabella April 27th, 2009



Mia is so great to Isabella! She entertains her by singing to her and talking to her like other adult have. You know, with the baby talk. It's so funny and Isabella just smiles and laugh. There she is sitting up in the Bumbo chair. She looks just like Veronica in that chair.

Having Fun at the Carnival! April 26, 2009





video It was about 90 degrees on this day, but we had so much fun. Mia loved the roller coaster and Michael loved the ferris wheel. Veronica even rode on the Ferris wheel with her Daddy and her sister. I can't wait until they are older to enjoy more carnivals and amusement parks.

Dying Eggs for Easter April 10, 2009




Michael and I picked a day that Mia was at school to dye eggs for Easter. He did such a good job dipping and flipping and not making a mess. Then when Mia came home we let her put a stickers on the eggs. She was happy with that responsibility. Transformer eggs are fantastic!
