Still here, just BUSY!

Well, I have just posted a bunch of pictures of the kids. Hopefully, that will help. Sorry it has been so long. We have been so busy and working a ton. I have been very busy with work and working most days on the weekends. So, that doesn't leave a lot of time for, well anything including blogging. I will be going on nightshift for a month soon, so you can expect to not see much from me for all of April. We have been getting ready for Ani's 5th birthday party. I can't believe she is already going to be 5! I called and started her registration for school last week. It seems like yesterday, she was that tiny baby in my arms. I know before I know it she will be grown. She wants to have a party, so we are planning one for the 30th. She keeps asking when it is time for her party. Hope to see pictures of that soon!!!

Dressing by herself

Yup, I have a lot of work to do. This is what my beautiful daughter decided to wear. I told her it was cold and she had to wear something warmer. So, she sort of got it. She put on what I told her, then what she wanted over the top. For a total of three shirts! Stubborn doesn't even begin to describe it!

Catchin' the butterflies. They had a great time playing. Ruston couldn't catch very many so he would pick them off of the floor.

I know this isn't an exciting picture for you, but if you knew what we have gone through waiting for this driveway, it would be. We were thrilled to see that they were working on the driveway when we woke up. Soon the concrete truck was on its way. No more driving in the mud, no more mud in the garage, no more muddy shoes. Of course, it all would have been a little better if we had a little grass. That is next !

Ruston loves playing with his trains. I am not sure where the hat came in. Maybe it has something to do with being born in Florida???

Happy Valentines Day

Mamaw got both the kids heart balloon for Valentine's Day. They loved them. They both had a great day at school and at the Valentine's parties. They were both on sugar highs when they got home. We finally had to hide the candy!

Playing together

Picaso or Ruston???

Yep, Ruston. He likes to color a LOT! The walls are his favorite. Thank goodness for Magic Erasers. This was only his first artistic expression. He has since colored this very wall - to a larger scale - three times. Now you are thinking, take the crayons away. I have, they have them hidden. I am sure of it. He keeps finding one. I think he stashed them. We have been a week with no more drawings, maybe I have them all!

Ruston has discovered Elmo. This was Ani's Elmo that he now loves. He was giving it rides through the house. I asked him what he had he said E -L - M - O !

Mamaw bought Ani a new baby at Wal-Mart and she loves it. Of course, Ariel is her favorite. She has taken it to school everyday and reads to it every nights. Too, cute. She asked me to take a picture of her with it!

Someone has learned to give kisses. He and sister love each other. They will hate to see this picture in their teenage years when they are fighting. I think I will make a big one and hang it up in their rooms to make sure they remember that they really do love each other!

He is too cute. Just lounging on the couch watch cartoons. Of course, when he found out I was taking his picture, he had to say Cheese.
