Going to night shift

Well, I just posted a bunch more pictures of the kids, including some of Ani's birthday party last week. I am staying up late tonight in an attempt to roll over to night shift. My first night is tomorrow night. I am not really looking forward to it, mostly because I will not get to see the kids very much. The good part is we have a vacation planned at the end of May, so I can make up for it then I guess. Unfortunately, you probably wont see much for new pictures until after I get to see the light of day again in about a month. So, much love to you all, enjoy the pictures!

Scooter time

Finally, we have him ON the scooter instead of pushing the scooter! Virgel was pushing him around and he finally agreed that is was a little bit more fun. I think we are still a little time away from him powering the scooter on his own!

Brother was playing on her toys so, fair is fair. We are struggling with sharing these days. Neither one likes it, except when they are the one getting to play with something. It didn't take long before Ruston wanted his car back. It was easy to tell when he went running to his car yelling "MINE"

Ahhh, Dirt!

Finally, he gets to play in dirt. He really is all boy. Ani has no interest in playing in the dirt and he was as happy as he could be. Hopefully we will plant some grass soon. Well, it will make me happy. Maybe I should leave a little spot of dirt for my boy!

Ani wont go anywhere these days with out a baby in her arms. Hey, anyone volunteer to come brush that hair. Yikes, what a mess. Here is one more Nebraska thing we have learned - it is windy here.

Outside finally. Still wearing jackets, but at least outside.

I told you Ruston liked that make up kit. This isn't the last time we caught him putting the lip gloss all over his cheeks. He is so proud of himself!


Presents, originally uploaded by jodifurr.

Finally, she gets to open the presents. Princess Barbies with matching horses, a chest of dress up clothes, an Aurora dress up outfit, a makeup kit (Ruston likes that one to) and a Barbie doll house. All in all a pretty good haul! And a good birthday.

In a box

I bought a canister of helium for balloons and Ani actually fit inside. It is hard to see the size, but it is really small! I was even able to close the lid.

Make a wish

Time for cake. Ani picked out this cake all on her own. I had a hard time figuring out where to put the candles! She blew them all out on her first try. Then I had to figure out how to cut it!!! That was the hard part. As you can see Ruston showed up for the food! Mamaw kept him entertained during the party. She enjoyed being at Ani's birthday party for the first time.

Pin the patch on the pirate

Spin them around three times and see where they go. They were pretty cute. There were a couple of cheaters among the group, they got the patch right where it was suppose to go. Hummm. suspicious!!!

Treasure chests

All of the princesses had treasure chests with jewels to decorate them with. They had a lot of fun. After they were decorated it was time to fill them with TREASURE. Pirates had hidden golden coins all through the living room for them to find. They had a lot of fun hunting for them. I think the main Pirate (me) hid some of them a little bit to well. We had to help them out just a little!

Princesses and Priates

Happy Birthday Ani!!! You are 5. I can't believe it. You are such a big girl. We had a Pirate and Princess party. We only had one pirate and unfortunately he was a crying pirate. His sister was a crying princess as well - the one sitting next to him. They didn't stay long, their dad had to take them home. The rest of the princess had a good time! It was so fun having them all dress up in the same dress.

Ruston has the best laugh ever and just loves to be tickled! Of course, that means he gets tickled a LOT!
