I know I am way behind on my blogging. I have been busy transplanting burning bushes and hydrangeas in my front yard. This was our first time to the Katy Trail with the kids. We went with the McCains. Chelsea and I pulled the Laurens behind us. For those of you that don't know about the McCains they were the first family we met when we came to Missouri. They also have four children pretty close to the same ages as our kids. Their last child is also named Lauren. They moved to Missouri for the same reason we did so Dad could go to Chiropractic school. We love to hang out with them, we always have a lot of fun.
Over the girls spring break we made it out to the St Louis Zoo. We met up with some friends and the kids had a great time. Most of the animals were out even though it was chilly. We only had to plug our nose once when we walked through the penguins home!
We can't believe Jake is 5 now! He will be going to Kindergarten this year. Jake has been such a busy boy. He swears when he gets older Dad is going to buy him a monster truck! Yellow of course! Jake has mastered climbing our back tree. I have caught him many times climbing to the top to tie kite strings to see them blow in the wind. I wish he had a little more fear for my sake. I bought a jogging stroller for one of my neighbors the other day at costco. I went in the house for a few minutes to put some things away. When I came back out Jake had pulled the box out of the back of the car. Remember we have a large bike rack that has to be moved every time you open the rear hatch. I caught him in our neighbors' driveway across the street with the box propped up on his skate board. I asked him what he was doing! Jakes reply was "Delivering the package Mom, duh!" Those were his exact words! I have to give it to him that it was very inventive to use the skate board! I never have to worry about him with 3 girls around and no brothers. He is all boy!!
Katelynd had her 5th grade play this past month. She was the "Yellow rose of Texas." They practiced long and hard for this play. Katelynd did a great job with her lines! All of the songs they performed were great. They even had motions to go with the music, it was quite entertaining!
Just a little web site to keep our family and friends informed. Out in our new Hometown of O'Fallon, Missouri. We just all keep growing up and getting older. I am a mother of 4 fun loving active children. They sure keep me busy and I love every minute of it. We all have adjusted well out here in Missouri. Thank goodness we haven't seen any tornadoes though. Jason is very busy with Chiropractic school so I have been put in charge of the blog. I think he did that on purpose to teach me how to use the computer. Our family is so very blessed we love just to be with each other and having a little fun. Now we just try to get Dad to talk about other things besides Gross Anatomy and how our body works. But we love him all the same. We think of all of you often and miss you all(now i talk like a missourian).
Jason's step-mother Nancy gave this to me before we moved. I just refinished it! It was a dark oak in color. I just stripped it to the natural wood and sanded it really good. I love it!
Jason gave a facelift to Jakes car!
This Red truck was made for Jason by his Dad about 28 years ago. His dad Jimmy is very artisitic and cut the wood and built this truck. Jason loved his red truck he always played with it, rode it and wrecked it. Now his PaPa Jimmy and MeMa Nancy have givin' it to Jacob to enjoy. Jacob plays with this Monster truck all the time, when I see him play with it makes me think if that is the way Jason played and imagined too. So Jason decided to give it a facelift. Jake got to pick the color! We are just waiting to put on the flames!

Jason Loved to play with this car
Jake's New Truck
Here's the new and improved truck. We should have painted it white or the same color as our walls because Jake can't keep it off of them.
Dad Hanging out on his Day Off!!!
