March Update

Tummy Time! Bella hates to spend time on her tummy but we were having a good day so I had to get the camera! She's now 3 1/2 months old. Where does the time go? She smiling, laughing, and babbling! She still rarely takes more than power naps during the day but she does sleep well at night!

Emma and Allyssa participated in their school's Science Fair last week. They did an experiment titled 'Boiling Ice?" where they observed and reported the results of adding ice to boiling water. They each received a participation ribbon and had a great time!

Jake has become a little Puzzle Master! He has already gotten bored with the 25 piece puzzles and moved on to the 60 and 100 piece ones! During the day, the floor is just littered in various puzzles! The ones that have stumped him are the lenticular puzzles with dual images. They are pretty tough!

Hello Spring????

It has been unseasonably warm all year long. We've had trees and flowers blooming for weeks and it's only the beginning of March! It's been a busy (as usual) month for us already.
Allyssa is finishing up her basketball season tomorrow. She had a very successful talent show where she sang 'Amazing Grace' Girls Scout cookie season is wrapping up after this weekend. Allyssa has sold over 270 boxes and is still going!
Emma has sold over 100 boxes and passed up her goal of 75 boxes.
Jake is fighting another cold and as his 3rd birthday approaches he is already starting to act like a 3 year old. He is full of spunk and energy and is hard to keep up with sometimes! Bella is now 3 months old and is smiling and even laughing a little. She's sleeping through the night some nights but still refuses to take more than power naps during the day. Since her tummy troubles have cleared up she has decided to boycott the bottle so she is pretty much goes wherever I go, even to cookie booths!

Bill started his new position and is dealing with the extra stress that comes with it!
Our newest addition is a full size van. We recently bought a 15 passenger Club Wagon. The thing is huge but I can actually drive it (and park it!) For those who have seen the movie "RV" you'll love this... The kids have nick-named it "The Big 'Ol Rolling Turd!" Even Jake sings the song from the movie "Big 'ol rolling turd comin' through, coming though!" If you haven't seen the movie... rent it! It is hilarious!
