Play-Doh

video
I went to the gym and to run errands this afternoon and I returned to this! Michael had woken from his nap a little on the crabby side, but Stephen pulled out Play-Doh and they were having a BLAST! I LOVE this little guy!

Savannah Grace is REALLY talking! We try to get her to talk all the time, but she is so quite and Michael usually talks over her. She was in rare form (which is getting much more common) today and I was lucky to catch it on video!

One Oldie, Two Goodies!

Seriously, we might have a future on "So You Think You Can Dance!?"

And I had a request to post this one even though it was on Facebook a while ago...

Oh Sweet Spring!

Our children absolutely LOVE being outside, so Winter was pretty miserable for us and we couldn't be more grateful for the warm weather! I know some of these are repeats from Facebook, but I thought they were too cute not to share.

I cut Michael and Savannah loose in the yard last week with some finger paint and they had a great time painting-probably went through six big pieces of paper.

After the paint ran out, I traded paintbrushes for sponges and soapy water. They actually thought cleaning the paint mess was fun and the patio ended up cleaner then when we started!

Savannah found a "fow-er" and I showed them how to blow on the dandylion. The pictures speak for themselves.

March Pics




Here are a few random pictures from March...After the snow melted, we spent the rest of the month switching between rain and sun (or "Shun-shine"). Which was great, except that our poor yard has become a swamp! I let the kids out one morning when they were begging to go outside and this is the result...than heavens for play-clothes and Oxi-Clean!

Michael and Savannah love to be outside and play very well together. I think our yard is just big enough that they can play together when they want to, but also have plenty of room to play on their own.



Savannah carries the pumpkin bucket around constantly and collects anything and everything she comes across. Luckily for her, the people who lived here before us left so much random stuff in the yard that everyday is like a treasure hunt!



Michael likes playing baseball with Stephen, but has definitely not grasped the concept that he might actually have to move the glove to catch the ball! I love that you can see the ball hitting right in front of him and he doesn't even flinch!



In the past month, Savannah has grown several inches! Michael has grown too, but it is most noticeable with Savannah. The top of her head used to be at Michael's shoulder and now she is almost as tall as he is lol!

And this might be my favorite...in her dainty dress wearing daddy's cover!
