Ty's Basketball Season

Tyler has been playing basketball for the last several weeks. He has become one awesome player!
He takes the ball down the court like a pro
and he makes a basket almost every game.

Only one game left!
Shawn can't wait to get on that court too!
I sure love you Ty! You are one amazing boy! You are a good sport, team player, and you have been practicing so hard. You are a basketball star!

Easter 2008

We had a great Easter weekend again this year.
We put on our new Easter clothes and snapped a few pictures before heading out to church.
On Saturday we went to Grandma and Grandpa Z's to color easter eggs. We are so glad that they invite us each year to color the eggs. It's so much fun! But I have to say, the glitter was definitely the highlight!

Bret kept his designated spot warm as usual. . . Reading on the couch! :)
And Shawn was pretty brave to play with the toys and stay out of trouble most of the time.

Easter morning we discovered that the easter bunny had delivered again. Our baskets were loaded!
Shawn was in heaven. He's never had a yummier breakfast . . . 1 chocolate egg, 1 Reese's peanut butter cup, another chocolate egg, another chocolate egg. . .
Our family is truly Blessed!

Saint Patrick's Day

Green Eggs and Ham Anyone?

I was so excited to play a little trick on the kids. I made a plate of Green scrambled eggs and some ham,
and I handed it to each one of them when they came down for breakfast.

They all had a nervous look on their face when they saw it.

I have to admit . . . It didn't look very appetizing.

They were all relieved when I pulled out toast and grapefruit from behind the toaster. We ended the day with "game night". . . A little Clue and Charades!

It was a fun "lucky" day!

Art Expo

Westridge had its annual Art Expo last week. The theme was "My Favorite Things" and Jenny and Tyler both chose to do 'Sculptures'. So we took a night and made salt dough. Boy was it fun!

Tyler made this "thing" and told me it was a caterpillar but then the next thing I knew it was a fence so . . .

Jenny knew right away what her favorite thing was!
Can you tell what it is?
And Katy, my little artist, made this little snowman. . . She kind of got "pushed to the side" because Jenny and Tyler needed help completing their projects and then all of a sudden Katy had this adorable Snowman made. He was complete with a scarf (not pictured), earmuffs, gloves (not pictured), buttons and a carrot nose. Her creation was pretty incredible for being 5 years old. I know she got her artistic talent from Bret and Grandma Clark, because she sure as heck didn't get it from me!
Shawnee even got to play with us.
But he wasn't so sure about it . . .

Well, if you haven't guessed yet, Jenny loves football! That's all she and a few friends do at recess is play football with the boys. And of course, you should have guessed Tyler's favorite thing . . . CHEESE! So he gave up on the fence/caterpillar thing and made a "cheeseman"! Complete with cheese colored paint and holes! Way to go guys! That was a fun project to do together. I love you all!
