It's That Time Again

Yes, it's pageant time again! Kaylyn was beautiful and did great! She always has a fun time on pageant day. Me, I'm exhausted and glad it's over! Here are a few pics. Enjoy! (as usual my camera hates the lights and refuses to cooperate....or it could be the operator!)

Slumber Party!

The snow finally stopped around 2:30 on Friday and we decided to have Kaylyn's slumber party for her birthday as scheduled...the girls would just need to come earlier, before there was ice on the roads. Kaylyn was so happy! She had been talking about and planning her party for weeks! We ended up having 3 of her friends over and they had the best time. Let's just say my quaint little home was very lively that night! I was privileged enough to overhear (you know, because they don't talk very quietly at 2:00 am) some very interesting conversations...mainly about..dum-da-dum-dum....BOYS. And so it begins. Ugggghhh!
Playing Twister-Hopscotch

Feeding time at the zoo!
The cake. Kaylyn picked it out herself.
Presents, Presents, Presents!
No cell phone included. Yes, she's still on the cell phone kick. I can assure you there will be NO cell phone in her near future.

Snow Day...FINALLY!!

The Weather Man finally got it right! We got around 2 inches of snow Friday, which was plenty for the kids to play in, and was gone by mid-morning on Saturday....just the way I like it! The following two pictures were taken when the snow had just started.
This little girl got snow on her birthday! However, she wasn't too happy about it. She had a slumber party planned for Friday night and we thought we may need to reschedule the party due to the snow. In the end we did get to have the party, but she was so unhappy about the snow all day! She only played in it for a little while and then locked herself in her room and refused to come out to play. I think she thought if she gave the snow the "cold shoulder" it would go away! No such luck!

This guy had himself a good 'ol time! After I finally got him bundled up, (he hates wearing his coveralls for some reason) he played in the snow for hours! He didn't care how cold or wet he got. He just kept playing until he was completely worn out.

This picture was taken about 2 hours after the snow had started coming down.



I think he was still crying over having to wear his coveralls in this picture.

The fuss didn't last long!

One of the very few minutes playing in the snow.

Pouting about the snow.

Making snowballs.

Gathering snow for snowcream.

I had to leave to go pick up Kaylyn's birthday cake. This was a picture of my drive. BTW, Walmart was crazy that day. I'm talking worse than Christmas shopping! I was lucky to make it out of the place in one piece!
The beginnings of a snowman or one very large snowball! He decided to give up on the snowman after a little while.

About to plaster Mama with a snowball!

One happy little man and one pouty little girl! She did get happier once the snow stopped and we knew we would be able to have her slumber party that night, but she really wasn't too impressed with the snow. She said she didn't like being cold and wet! Can't say I blame her!

Luke's Valentine

Luke made this card at school today. I thought it was very cute! Can you tell he made it all by himself???

In other news, Luke has started doing math in school now. This was the conversation on the way home from school today:

Luke: "I had a good day today, I didn't get in trouble!!!
Me: "Good news! What did you do at school today?"
Luke: "We did our 'plus'.' I like doing plus'!
Me: "You like 'plus'?' What is 2 + 2?"
Luke: "I don't know. We don't do hard plus'! Duh!"
Me: "Sorry....my bad..."
