|Happy Birthday, Maddie!|
After cake, we went outside and did the last experiment which was exploding mentos and diet coke. :-) The kids thought it was hilarious!
After the last experiment, all the kids started playing and next thing we knew, Kylie was on the ground screaming. Turns out, she cut her head on something (we think maybe the playset) and she really did a number on it. Luckily, one of the parents at the party was an EMT so he really helped us out! She was a trooper and was smiling by the time we got ready to go.
|Here's what it looked like when we got it all cleaned up at home.|
The next day, we went to get the mattress for Kylie's new bed! It was delivered later in the month and she was so excited. We managed to cram it into the van but the kids had to duck a bit. :-) They thought it was hilarious...
|These were the brownies I made for the superbowl party we went to that night! I had to take a picture. :-)|
|Silliness at work - these are my coworkers Deirdre and Sara doing some exercise in our office. :-)|
That week, I had a hair appointment and I decided, a little last minute, to go pretty dark!! I'd been thinking about doing it for a while and figured, why not!? It's faded a bit since then but it's still a lot darker than it's ever been!

|Our crazy girl!|
A Sunday dinner with Nana, Grandad, Andrea, Sean and Savannah...
|Check out all the kids having fun doing puzzles and playing iPads. :-)|
|He was so proud|
|... and showed all his friends at the bus stop that morning|
The kids and Waylon did really well while I was gone. They hung out with Nana and Grandad and went to see a movie. So much fun with Daddy!
That week, we had an impromtpu dinner with the Gebhardts. They brought cupcakes with candles already in them so the kids wanted to light them and sing Happy Birthday to themselves! :-)
|Kylie picked her own outfit!!|
That Thursday, daycare called and told us that Kylie had pink eye and couldn't return to school Friday. She and I both were fighting a cold, so we took a 'sick' day together. Neither of us felt horrible so it was a nice day together. It did us both some good to rest though.
|Picnic lunch in the house - she looks so sick, right??|
|She did take a long nap and wasn't happy about waking up to get Noah off the bus - how pitiful is that face?!|
|Smiling later though!|
That afternoon, Savannah came to stay with us for the night. The kids were so excited about that, also! Last minute, our neighbors invited us to come over so we decided to go for a bit. It turned out to be a huge gathering of kids and the kids loved it. We had dinner there and ice cream sundaes for dessert.
We came home around 7, made popcorn and the kids watched a movie.
We weren't quite sure how bedtime would go with Savannah since it was her first time staying over at our house but she did great - went straight to bed and slept great. Up only once in the night but went right back to bed! We were so happy that it went well - this opens all sorts of new opportunities! :-)
|Happy kids at breakfast!|
We had butterflies that had grown from caterpilliars that the Weavers had given us for Christmas so we decided to let them go that day with Savannah there. It was a beautiful day so we played outside until Sean came to pick her up.
Noah has been doing so great with reading and writing - he's really come so far since he started Kindergarten - in fact, we just had a parent teacher conference today and he's either right on track or past where he should be at this point! We are so proud of him.
|"I love you Kylie and you Daddy and Mommy"|
|Grammy-Kylie day at Marbles|
That weekend, Grammy took the kids to the lake to spend the weekend there with Papa also and we had a weekend alone and painted our bedroom! It was fun to do a project like that together again - it's been a while since we've done something like that together -- but that was technically March so that comes up next!! :-)
