Big Day for Charlie

Charlie is offically done with nursing and isn't looking back! I am very thankful that I was able to nurse him this long like I did with Macy, but am glad to have a little bit more freedom. So, who wants to babysit now that Seth and I can go out without me hurrying back before bedtime??? Here are a few shots from today to commerate the big day.

Stuff from Yesterday

Seth went through a couple boxes before he was going to put them in the attic and in them were practically every toy he had ever played with as a child, so now Charlie is good to go on cars, Matchbox cars, He-man toys, planes, guns, and my personal favorite a Mr. T serving platter. Here he is with just a fraction of them. Also, there was this old cast iron tractor in the toys and Seth said it was old when he played with it, so I looked it up on Ebay and one in similar condition without the hitch was going for about $25, maybe it will be worth alot more when Charlie passes it down to his son to play with. In Macy related news, I was doing something in the kitchen and Macy was being awful quiet and then she came running out looking like this. Once again, she went through my makeup and was trying to master how to put mascara on.

My cousin's husband, Ryan, is a contestant! He was on last night and he is up to an offer of $200k and it continues on Wednesday. One the supporters on the side is my cousin, Valerie. My aunt (my dad's sister) is in the audience holding their daughter. Seth and I are excited to see how much he wins!

Updated- We just finished watching and Ryan won $97k!

Time for a change...

Summer inspired me to update my blog after she changed her banner. So instead of doing housework, I fooled around with photoshop and this is what I came up with. It was first attempt to make a banner, I will probably change it again when I figure more stuff out on it.

New Table and Old Baby

We got a new kitchen table and Charlie loves to crawl under it and push out all the chairs. Hopefully we got a tough enough table to withstand an exploring baby.Yesterday when we were going through the attic stuff I found my old baby doll from when I was little. Macy loves her baby dolls, so I gave her to Macy and with daddy's suggestion, she named her Kathryn. Baby Kathryn joins big sisters baby Lilly and baby Sally.

Updated: My dad sent me a picture of me (no, that is not a boy with a bad haircut) and baby Kathryn.

Neighborhood Walk

I took the kids out to explore the neighborhood. In our neighborhood there is a place called the tundra with a "lake" (it is more like a canal than a lake). It is a couple houses down and around the corner, so it is really close. First we stopped and fed the ducks, which the kids loved! We walked along the water, It continues on and then we stopped at the park. Which again they loved. Right next to the park is the elementary school, (in the neighboorhood, so it is within walking distance).On our way back we went up the gazebo on top of the hill (the thing a couple pictures up). I am excited to have a nice place to walk the kids in the neighborhood!
