green EVERYWHERE!...

Last week I told Clate all about the little leprechaun man who would turn things green and pinch him if he wasn't wearing green. He was pretty excited to see what I was talking about. This morning, he woke up and ran upstairs in his underwear to ask me if today was the day that the leprechaun was coming. I said yes, and he said, "Oh, I better wear my green shirt then!" He ran downstairs and got dressed before he got pinched! As soon as the girls woke up I started making breakfast. Clate couldn't believe it that when I started to scramble the eggs, they turned green. His first response was, "Ewww, I'm not going to eat those!" When I convinced him that they would probably taste the same as regular eggs and that the leprechaun had just turned them green, he was excited! He asked me if it was a green chicken that laid those eggs. I told him I wasn't sure, but I had never seen a green chicken before. Both Clate and Halle were shocked when they saw me pooring white milk into their cups, but when it hit the cup it turned green too. They were both very excited to drink green milk. Breakfast was a lot of fun!
It was also Clate's turn to take treats to preschool! Luckily, the leprechaun brought some green cookies and milk for him to take, because I was just going to send him with pickles and green grapes! Apparently, the milk was a big hit at preschool too!
Happy St. Patty's day!

Cute or Not So Cute???

Cute Chloe.

Not so cute Chloe.

Chloe had this little patch of hair on the back of her head...a mullet of all things. Business in the front, party in the back. Some would say, "Oh, it's so cute..." It wasn't cute. There was nothing cute about it. It drove me nuts for too long. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore and I had to cut it off, but before starting with the scissors, I had to get these pics.

Does anyone think this was cute???

March already???

I haven't felt like blogging this year...so I haven't, but I know I need to so I am going to try to do a little better...maybe once a month or so :)

ANYWAY...In January, we finished our remodel that we started in November...and we LOVE it! We about doubled our living space and got really soft carpet, so we're feeling pretty good! We also played in the snow alot!

In Feb, I turned 32!!! Yipee! My kids discovered their love for coloring! They've been coloring, obviously, for a while now, but lately they'll color ALL the time! Clate has even started coloring in the lines and using more colors than just red! I hope he can still be a Cougar fan considering his love of red...we'll see.

I decided to join facebook. I find it very interesting. I think it's exciting to find people from back in the day, even the back in the more recent days, but once I get an update of most people, I'm good for another 10 years or so. Is that bad? However, for some of the people I have found, I look forward to keeping up with them!
