What a great dad!

For the past while Mickell has been telling me that she really wants dad to bring her some boards home so she can build something. She called him up at work the other day and he told her that on Saturday they would go buy some boards and figure out something they could build. After talking to him on the phone she came up with the idea to build an airplane. On Saturday we all went over to Lowe's and picked out some boards, nails, and a hammer for both Dylan and Mickell. When we got home Dylan quickly drew up some "blueprints" and David helped them sort of plan out how they were going to build the airplane. The kids helped with everything and were acutally really really good at hammering in the nails...well, Dylan and Mickell were really good at it and Ty just had fun pretending. David made a propeller and a steering wheel for each side of the airplane so they could both play in it at the same time. It might not look like much, but they had such a wonderful day and were so proud of all their hard work. I'm so grateful that David is such a great dad and that he would spend his day helping them to create something so fun.

Happy 7th Birthday Dylan

I can't believe that my oldest child is already seven years old! Time passes by way too fast for my liking. Dylan is such a great kid and he had such a fun birthday. I think the highlight of his day was getting an Indiana Jones little lego set. He loves little legos and he loves the Indiana Jones wii game, so mix them together and you have the ultimate gift for him. I'm so glad that he had a fun day.

Ty LOVED the birthday cake!
Mickell was really excited that it was Dylan's birthday. She spent a lot of time during the afternoon making him a special birthday card and even put $0.27 of her own money in the card. So cute!!

Christmas 2008

It's been a while since I made a post and I figured it was about time I tried to catch up on things. The holidays seemed like a whirlwind...always a million places to go and too many things to get ready for. I was glad when Christmas finally arrived. The kids were SO excited and had such a wonderful day. We just hung out and took it easy all day and had a lot of fun together as a family. A lot of us have been sick on and off since Christmas though, so we are just barely getting back to normal and trying to get back in the swing of things!
