Happy 7th, Alli!

Alli had a smile from the minute she woke up on her birthday, even though she had to go to school! We ate dinner out, and stopped for some doughnuts, which Alli wanted instead of cake. We got her to stop dancing around the table at dinner long enough to take this picture. She is one of the few people I know who burns the calories before they're digested!

With all the birthday stuff, we put off coloring eggs until Sunday morning. Here are the girls in their pj's dipping the eggs. Hazel was content to watch for only a few minutes!

Once everyone got out of their pajamas, we took some pictures in front of our house.

Today was Alli and Mary's birthday party. We had a lot Easter fun. I was most excited about probably the lamest part, namely the napkins. They're carrots!

We ate bunny cupcakes that Alli and Mary decorated for the party.

Everyone played jelly bean tag and jumped in the "bunny sack" race!

Singing to the birthday girls

Happy Birthday, Arthur

Yesterday was Arthur's birthday. He turned 3. Now don't you all feel guilty for not sending a card.

Spring Break Fun

Now that we live in the frigid North, where I'm convinced that I will never be warm again, our spring break was cold and wet. We played with friends as much as possible, and one day we decided to go bowling.
Alli and Mary liked their bowling shoes.

Alli had an interesting technique. She took a running start, and then heaved the ball chest-pass style at the lane. It worked, she got a strike!

Mary did the best she can, since every ball was as big as she was!

Hazel helped Quinn out on some of his turns.

He beat us all, but come on, he had Hazel helping him! What a cheater.

Happy Birthday, Mary!

Mary turns 5 today! She is really excited to be a whole handful (like she wasn't before) and has been showing me all day how she is taller, her arms are longer today. You be the judge.

No excuses!

I'm done being lame. Let's just say that I have some great Christmas video I took with my camera, but don't know how to do anything with it (although I'm told it's easy). So I froze. Anyway, here are the girls, in case anyone forgot who we are.
