Nose In The Wrong Spot

This is the snowman that is standing in the entrance to our neighborhood.

Macie says: The nose is in the wrong spot.

100th Day

Macie's class celebrated the 100th day of school Friday and was supposed to bring 100 items from home. So we cut out and tied together 100 of Macie's feet. Macie got to measure how far 100 of her feet reached in her school. We did this at home as well..

I Want To Be A Heart Hero

Macie will be participating in Jump Rope For Heart again this year. It's an American Heart Association Event that will take place Feb 4th. Macie will be jumping to raise money for the children that need our help. We want to make a difference for at least one child. If you'd like to donate money you can do so by visiting Macie's page:

Or you can make your check payable to The American Heart Association..If you go this route let me know and I can pick it up.

Eli and I were watching Clifford this morning (our daily routine) and had this convo:
Eli: How did God make me?
me: With his hands.
Eli: Where did he get the parts?
me: ??????????

With Sweetness Comes A Little Bit Of Crazy

Today was another basketball game in which Macie had high hopes of making a basket. AND JUST SO HAPPENS SHE D-I-D! Her very first!! At about this time in the picture I hear Jason say: "It's goin in", then it's total pandemonium from there. I was jumping up and down, whooping and hollarin, like the over excited parent that I am, lose my balance and have to jump down from the bleachers to try and regain my balance - hahaha NO kidding!! So I missed every photo op after this moment. Macie was so very excited!! She raised both arms in the air, looked towards the ceiling as if sayin, "F-I-N-A-L-L-Y"!! Totally cute and I totally missed it, but thankful for this pic (which I thought I didn't get)..

Here's Macie receiving her gray star for "best offense".

Today was a totally awesome, & crazy day!
Outstanding job Macie!! :))

No words come to mind.

Sometimes I think these two are more twins than the two actual twins (Austin & Eli)

Tonight is the big nite!! The big premiere of the bunk beds..Slumber party in the boys room..It was gonna be the boys on the top bunk, but Eli said he was a lil scared and let Macie have his spot. The boys agreed weeks ago that Eli would have the bottom bunk and Austin would have the top.

How do babies get in your belly?

Several weeks ago Eli asked his aunt Amy ( how baby Henry got inside her belly. Her answer was God put it there. Well today Eli has been full of "the funnies". His first funny happened at lunch time when he told Austin not to sit by him "cause you ugly"...hahahaha It wouldn't be so funny if they didn't look alike. His second funny came a minute ago when he said he had a question about Amy's baby.
Eli: I have a question about Amy's belly.
me: Okay, what is it?
Eli: How did Amy's baby get in her belly? She never told me...
me:'s complicated!!
Eli: What's complicated?
After about 10 questions in a row I have to shut him down :)) I heard on the radio a few weeks ago the average 4 year old asks around 400 questions a day and I HAVE TWO 4 yr olds. Enough said!

Here's a pic of Macie's black eye. One of the boys headbutted her. As the days went on it looked worse. This pic was taken the day after it happened and it wasn't THAT bad, but bad enough to get her schools attention. Someone (adult) asked her about it, which wouldn't have freaked me out if I hadn't just sent in a Child Maltreatment form (required for the teaching program I'm gettin ready to apply for).. :))

Booger Mania

I've overdue for a gross post-so here ya go. The boys are going through a booger stage. For months, I have been finding dried boogers on the boys beds (headboards & footboards), nightstand, jeans (sometimes) and just recently the walls and my car windows. Those little dudes are like dried cement..So there you have it - my life in a nutshell..Hope I've made you chuckle or at least brought a smile to your face..Have a good one!

1st Basketball game

This morning started our basketball season. I ABSOLUTELY loved this tunnel deal.
*WARNING* I'm yelling in this video - so turn your volume down.
I tried to get her to do a cart wheel as she came out - but she didn't..There is more incentive to
do one for the next game :))

Trust me-I realize these pictures are crap, but just wanted to show you how close Macie came to scoring..She's still not aggressive, but we'll work on that. She seems to like it, so that's all that matters..After the game they get different colored stars and Macie got the only white star. That star represents "Christlikeness". Her coach told her this was a very important star and she's the only one that received it. This made her feel very special and she was thrilled! Thank you, Coach W.

The First Green Star

Before Christmas break Macie rec'd her first green star in basketball for memorizing the weekly bible verse
1 JOHN 1:5 (b)
God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all.

Excited to rec her 2nd star tonight. (These stars are ironed on their uniform shirt sleeves-btw)

Stay tuned for details and pictures of her 1st basketball game this year. I hear they really put on a show - from tunnels, to loud speaker name announcements to even SMOKE!!

To mention the boys - everyone is fine. Eli has been tellin me often "I'm the best mommy in the sea"..(We're big fans of spongebob).
