Ice Skating

Skylee has started taking ice skating lessons and they are going really well. She stays up on two feet and that is better than most right? As long as she is in the snow pants to pad the toosh we are happy.







Try to ignore me laughing towards the end when she almost falls video

hodgepodge of things.

Okay so here are a few other pics. Lenka decided to have a 3rd bday party for Jackson at Chuck E Cheese. 24 hours notice, but she pulled it off and the kids had fun. We saw Adam and his family there and it went well. You can tell the kids miss each other. Aww!

Happy Belated Easter

On Wed we did a little hunt at Abe and Levi's house with their Grandma Linda. I got some great photos of this. The kids had a great time. I must say Skylee was very good at finding the eggs. We had a bunch when it was all said and done. The kids had ice cream(thanks Lenka), dyed Easter Eggs, and decorated cup cakes. We couldn't stay very long since this was a work day for me, but we had a nice time.
The next morning I came home at 6am to find Skylee awake(woohoo) and she felt kind of hot. Of course I couldnt find a thermometer so I had Damien check her out and he said she was fine. Of course she was acting okay so I let it go. We had to go to her class that day for their easter egg hunt and she was very excited to go. We left the house and drove the 5 minutes to school. As we got there she became super clingy, and I asked her teacher if they could take her temp. It was 102! I can't believe how quick that came on. So she missed school on friday, and ran a high temp if you missed a dose of Motrin. She was well enough to go have dinner with Titi and see the new Hannah Montana movie. And a family egg hunt on Saturday. So finally monday we made it to the Dr and found out she had the flu. Other than the fever she had no other symptoms. And she didn't act like it was bothering her. Poor thing.
I came down with it a bit too, but nothing to write home about. So as soon as I can I will post some pics of the stuff we have been up to. Oh and I also have some video of Skylee at her ice skating lessons too.

Hunting Eggs at Abe's


Do you know how hard it was to get the kids to take this pic? All they could see were the eggs. Jackson wouldn't even take the pic. LOL

Learning the hard way

Ok so on Thursday Skylee and I went to meet Linda, Abe and Levi at Fastlanes for some lunch and fun. I don't know who had more fun Linda and I or the kids. They have these really addictive games that are funky claw machine candy types. I think Linda and I spent at least 10 minutes on the machine, helping the kids of course.
We weren't able to ride the go karts since they weren't on but we had a good time and some yummy lunch anyways.
Well recently I have had to tell Skylee not to stick things out the car window.
"Skylee, you can't stick your head out the window."
"bruno does it."
"you arent Bruno, and Mommy doesnt get noticed by the cops if Bruno does it. But I think they might notice the 4 yr old trying to hang out of the window"
**Skylee pouting***

So on the way home from Fastlanes Skylee requested her window down and I obliged. We are cruising and I hear this strange *tink tink* and it kind of sounded like I ran over something. Well immediately Skylee screeches in the back seat.

"MY HORSEY"
"Where is your horse?"
"BACK THERE. YOU HAVE TO GO BACK."
"Sorry kid, but you cant stop traffic on 71 to get anything, we will have to get a new one."
Apparently Horsey was getting some fresh air and fell out the window

It was really hard not to laugh, she was so upset but it brought back memories. I remember tossing my sister's pencil bag out the window once. We never did find it even though my dad turned around and made me look for it. So anyways we had to go directly to walmart to replace the stuffed horse. So one quick stop and $15 later we were feeling better, and only a smidge traumatized.
