Nick loses his 1st tooth & gets his orange belt!

Nick is 7 and in the 2nd grade and has been very patiently waiting to lose his first tooth. 
It finally happened!
 A visit from the tooth fairy! 
 Now he's just very patiently waiting to lose another!
 In May he also earned his orange belt in karate.
 Here he is showing his skills!
 He kicked through a board too!  He is super awesome!
 Congrats Nick!  Way to go! We are proud of you!

Jack turns 4!

On May 21st Jack turned 4!  We started the day out by singing happy birthday and blowing out candles in his cinnamon toast! 

 Then it was off to preschool. He picked to bring popsicles to pass out to all his friends!
 Then Dad, Mom and Elle picked him up for lunch at McDonalds and a trip to Chuck E. Cheese.
 (I love this pic of her, she is so fat she has rolls on her kneecap!)
 Jack is a very talented boy! 
He can pick both his nostrils with his tongue, thus he never needs a tissue!

 After school Hannah and Nick joined us for bowling! 
 This 4 year old LOVES bowling!
 And Dippin' Dots!
 Home for pizza, presents,
 cake & ice cream! 
 Even great big 4 year old get worn out with a day of too much fun!
Happy Birthday Jacker!  We love you so much! 
Thanks for being part of our family!

A: Awesome

T-ball & B-ball

Last Spring Nick and Jack played T-ball & coach pitch.  They loved it and had a great season!
 Jack especially loved it! (Can you tell?) He loved hitting the ball and running the bases and when he played outfield sometimes jumped the entire inning out of sheer excitement! :)  

 Nick also had a great time!  He is quite the batter and loved the treats the team always got after each game!

 Hannah played basketball.  She is an awesome defender and even scored a basket!  Often times she was the only girl on the court!  We are proud of her for trying so hard and being so brave and outgoing!

Go team Nigbur!

Swimming in IF

Over Spring Break we headed up to Idaho to see our cousins and attend Eliza's baptism.  We stayed at a fun hotel in Idaho Falls (the locals call it IF).  Elle went swimming for the first time and was VERY excited to wear her new suit! 
 I'm not sure she loved the water but was extremely tolerant of it and the splashing that took place.
 Mommy and baby!  Who is chubbier?
 The other kiddos of course loved the pool, they are little fish. 
 They also enjoyed the general craziness that occurs when a big group of cousins get together to play & swim!   
Happy Spring Break! Let's do it again next year!

Easter 2013

Hippity Hoppity Easter's on it's way! 
The kids had a lot of fun dying eggs this year. 
They spent a lot of time getting them just right!

 The Easter bunny brought lots of fun surprises in our baskets! 
Jack got new balls for the upcoming T-ball season!
 Nick got a new mitt for coach pitch. 
 He outgrew his old one and passed it down to Jack.
 Hannah needed a basketball for her upcoming games.
 And little Miss Elle needed lots of candy that her parents would steal from her!
 The boys got matching shirts!
 And the girls got matching dresses!
 Happy Easter!
