Sunny Days are Here Again!


025-2

Okay I know I have been a bad blogger lately but the weather has been so beautiful and we have been playing outside non stop! I have a feeling my blog will be neglected a little this summer..lol. It seems like the only time I have to blog lately is late at night and I have been so exhausted that I have just went straight to bed. Today was gorgeous, around 75 degrees here.I was on the road all day taking Kaleb to meet his Dad in Lexington Kentucky. It is spring break this week so his dad arranged a few fun things to do . They are going to Atlanta on Wednesday to watch the Atlanta Falcons play and then flying to Chicago on Thursday to watch the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat play. Kaleb was excited, he is a big basketball fan and he got to take a friend with him so I am sure they will have a great time.

After I got home this afternoon, I played outside with the kids all evening. We just bought an older dresser off of a co-worker and John spent the afternoon sanding it down and staining it. Kaleb needed a new dresser so we found this one at a great price and decided to refinish it. It is solid wood and a nice piece of furniture so hopefully it will turn out okay. The three panels in the middle open and there are three drawers that pull out. Pretty neat hu? Kind of reminds me of the Brady Bunch a little..lol! But not to worry , it will be the updated Brady Bunch dresser when we are done!!

Oh and the funniest thing happened after I was home. Out of the blue Ayla looked at me and said, "Mom you are out of control", and I said, "What do you mean I am out of control", as to which she replied, "Look at all of those clothes in the closet, you are out of control"... I started laughing because I knew she was probably repeating what her Daddy had said as he was getting her dressed this morning. So I had Ayla repeat what she had said to John and he started laughing...BUSTED!! I told him it wasn't really as bad as it looks, I have a system with Ayla's closet, he just doesn't know what it is (wink, wink).

So Brennan has been in dire need of a hair cut lately, John took him to the barber shop yesterday afternoon and as soon as he sat him in the chair he threw a fit. The barber refused to cut his hair so John brought him home and cut his hair all by himself and he didn't even move. So here is his new hair cut, isn't he handsome? I could just smother him with kisses all day and all night..lol!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend, is anyone watching March Madness? We are huge basketball fans so we are watching every chance we get! So far our team is still in it. Oh and actually West Virginia won the Big East Championship last week!! Today while I was in Kentucky, almost everyone I saw was wearing blue and white. I didn't realize until later that they were playing tonight so then it made sense. Kentucky has some die hard fans, I know that. We are fans of Kentucky too because one of their players, William Patterson is from West Virginia!

Have a great Sunday!

Today was our first pretty day in forever, too! Unfortunately Libbi was sick, so we were stuck inside all day :(
Brennan's haircut is adorable...maybe your husband should set up shop - ha! Ayla is too funny...I worry about the day Libbi starts repeating things her daddy has said about my shopping :))

LOL "mom are you out of control?" I am dying! that is so funny!!!! But that picture of Brennan made me stop and goo and awww! His haircut is adorable. He is adorable! John did a great job! I need to get Jacob's hair cut so bad. Aaron is just hounding me about it, but I just can't yet. I am sure that I will be giving in soon. It is kind of getting out of control. :)
