Mud Puddle

With the weather being so nice, the kids spent some time playing outside while travis was working on the yard. They were enjoying playing with the hose and decided that they should make a big puddle. It turned out to be quite gigantic and they were covered in mud!! The both kept saying it was the best day of their lives...until travis sprayed them down with the hose and then sent them in for a bath :)

Accident with the doll house

Xander decided that it would be fun to climb up the doll house....It is a really tall doll house...probably a little taller than Ellie. The doll house ended up falling over on him. He ended up splitting his eye lid open. Luckily he didn't need stitches, but it swelled up pretty good and he looked like a boxer! :)

Playing in the dirt!

Travis and I were in the front yard, doing some much needed spring clean up of the yard. Xander spent the day outside with us and loved to sit and play in the dirt...It was so cute to see him!!

Xander's Chair!!

My parents got this chair for Ellie when she was about Xander's age!! It has been a wonderful chair. He loves to go sit in his chair and eat a snack, or read is so cute!

Locks of Love

Ellie has wanted to donate her hair to Locks of Love for about 1 1/2 years. I told her that was fine and we would do it when her hair got long enough. Funny got long enough, but I loved it so much I hoped that she would forget donating her hair. She didn't forget. So I told her I would go online and find out what we needed to do. I guess I took to long, because the other night, she googled "locks of love" and found out everything we needed to know!! A very determined girl!! So we did it!! She felt really proud of herself and we were really proud as well!

Doesn't she look so cute!!
