Bye-Bye

This week I'm saying bye-bye to several of the last vestiges of babies in my home.  Craigslist is where I'm selling some booster seats, baby storage items, a gliding ottoman and other things we no longer use and have long since run out of space to store.  I also had a chance to donate some things to our local Goodwill.

Every last little bit of money we earn from these little sales is designated to the purchase of a wooden playset for the backyard!  Even the recent birthday money (thank you, Grandma & Grandpa).  I would love to find a used one to purchase, and I'm certainly going to need help putting it together.

I also had to say "Bye" to my mother who was in town mostly since Christmas.  I miss her already!  She is such an encouragement to me, my personal cheerleader and makes anything seem possible. 

We love you and miss you.

Seriously Sweet!

Our little girl is FIVE!

Faith wanted a Candy Land party.
(Faith is always the red gingerbread character)




It was so fun to see the children's faces and hear the comments as they arrived and saw the candy displays.

The candy made such colorful decoration!















We made "candy" necklaces with Fruit Loops and fruit gummy rings.



Everyone got to fill their tote at the "Candy Buffet."



We had other activities and fun, the boys all played outside (with hoses, digging in the dirt, etc) and my computer just took too long uploading additional pictures.  I'll update more soon!

I just love my five-year-old girlie!

Brave Little Caleb


We were back at our mall for some indoor fun lately and Caleb said he wanted to try the Jumping.


To say he loved it and was oh-so-proud is putting it mildly!



Big sister showed him the "ropes."

Big Brother was wore himself out!

We're still enjoying the winter weather!

  All three enjoy getting outdoors.

Jake is facinated by icicles.

Tastes Good!

Faith enjoys making paths in the fresh snow.

But she loves to taste it, too!

Caleb was SO proud of the snowman - he kissed it!

So proud!

He even gave the snowman a 'high-five."

The deck shows signs of many little visitors - we have refilled the bird feeder and even tossed out breadcrumbs for them.

See the lovely cardinal - and his mate?



And indoors my paperwhites remind me that spring will come.
