Zachary is sick...

So Zachary has been sick today. Aubrey has declared that she is allergic to throwup.  I said, "I think I am too!" I will spare you with the pictures.

Don't leave it where he can get it...

I don't know how many times I say this a day.  And this is the result of them not listening to me.
Thanks, guys!  
He is pretty cute though.

Is this stealing?

What do these have in common?
These are all things that I left with from the grocery store!
Yes, they paid me to take all those items!  Awesome, Right!
Here is the proof!  Saved 105%

Listening Points!

One of the BEST things that I have come up with.  My kids LOVE points.  So if they "Listen" to me the first time I ask them to do something they get a point.  You would think that I was handing out money or candy or something really really great.  Benjamin even turned down a cookie after dinner last night for a "point".  We have been doing this for about a week with no way of charting the "points".  So after a couple of minutes on Excel.  They now have a chart.  And it is nothing short of a miracle.  Let's see how long I can ride this wave.
 Here is the chart.
Here are the stickers.
Here is what they do when you put them together.  Yes two of my point hunger children emptied and put away all of the dishes. For a point each.  Cheap labor.

Derby Time...

I just went on a fun trip to the Kentucky Derby.  I know who would have thought that was something I would want to do.  Well I had a great time.  It was a girl cousin get together.  My in-laws put the whole thing together.  There were three of Dan's cousins that came up from Tennessee and I came over from Denver to Louisville where my in-laws live.  Friday was beautiful weather.  Saturday not so much. It rained all day.  So we opted to play dress up, take pictures and then go to the Derby in Jeans and ponchos!

We are still here...

I know it has been a long time since I've posted anything.  I have indeed finished the Easter dresses and several other projects and trips.  Here are a few pictures of our goings-on's.
Going to the park!

Making treats!

Eating treats!
Going to the Zoo!
We went to the zoo with two of my good friends and their kiddos.  All together we had 3 moms and  11 kids!  We were the the side show! 
We had a great time!  And we are looking forward to many more trips to the zoo!
 Then we ventured out to a park were we tried to fly kites and had our face painted.
Benjamin is also trying to Rollerblade.
That is about it for now.
