Toodie Ta!

This year in 4-K Emmy's class theme for the year was nursery rhymes. Today they had a program at the school to demonstrate some things they learned. I was so impressed with all their costumes, they were so cute! This post is mostly for family as you may not want to see all the videos that Emmy is in, however, if you get a chance, please watch the first video. It is truly hilarious!


In this video, Emmy is a monkey with bangs hanging in her eyes. I zero in on her for most of it. Sorry in advance about the shaking. Some parts I couldn't stop laughing!

Emmy is the one with the dish and spoon costume and blue skirt on.

Stay tuned for the rest of the program if I could just get it uploaded!!!!

The Great Easter Egg Hunt....

Our church has a big Easter Egg Hunt each year. The girls, of course, know exactly what to do, but it's always fun to see what the littlest one will do. This year it was Rhett's turn to train to be a good Easter Egg hunter. And with that, he decided that he could care less. He actually had a very good system...let all the other kids find the candy, and then steal from them. Well, it was the most efficient way to get candy...




This is the one Egg Rhett picked up.



Lydia ducks into the bushes for some eggs.



Emmy in a break out run to get the eggs.



We made cupcakes in an ice cream cone and Rhett loved them (truthfully, he loves all food).



Okay, here is a cute picture of Emmy and Rhett, until you notice Rhett scoping out Emmy's candy.



Here, Rhett decides which piece of candy he's going for and Emmy suddenly realizes that Rhett is not just sitting beside her for her company.



About the only picture I got of the girls looking towards the camera. Too many eggs to look for instead. Notice Emmy's look of contentment!



This was taken shortly after the hunt, Cinderella is pooped!

Happy Easter....Not So Happy Easter Pictures!

Oh the torture of taking Easter pictures! Rhett is at the stage where he wants to go where he wants to go and that is that. And the girls are so tired of smiling by the time we get him to look at the camera that it's hard to get a good picture of any of them. So, here are a few of the ridiculous amount of pictures that I took. Oh, and it was not just in one day, let me assure you.

Peer Pressure At Five!

I noticed when Emmy started going to school that she would come home and tell me that so and so had this or that and could she have this or that. It was the first time Emmy took notice of other people and what they were wearing or doing. And....so it begins...peer pressure. Emmy wears lipstick to school everyday because every other girl in her class does and therefore, so does Lydia. The list goes on and on, but the latest is hair and earrings. There is a little girl who goes to our church who is also in Emmy's class at school. This particularly cute little girl has short hair that is stacked in the back and short in the front as well as earrings. Well, Emmy has been begging me for weeks now to get her hair cut like the little girl and get earrings. Emmy and Lydia have both got their hair cut, and after going to church on Wednesday, we came to church on Sunday to see yet another little girl in the church now has her hair like the rest of them. It has become such a joke in our church that when Jim used it in a sermon illustration on Sunday, the crowd went wild. Anyway, this is what the finished product looks like. Earrings are still on the "to do" list.

Mr. Mischievous!

Jim's mom has always told us that Jim didn't deserve the kids we have (Emmy and Lydia), for he was well known for his antics as a child. Well, though I don't think Rhett is to the level of Jim yet, he is close enough for me! I feel like he is a Tasmanian devil on a cartoon. He blows into a room and disaster follows where ever he goes!



Oh how Rhett loves to climb...EVERYTHING!







Emmy can't even get her homework done for Rhett climbing on her.




Markers....I hate markers! My kids love to body paint themselves by way of markers. Well, of course the girls left some markers unattended for a certain little brother to find. I was so glad to find out that he was a little artist. Look at his work on the table, and don't worry, he didn't miss himself.




Here he is modeling a bathrobe.




But how can you get mad at a face like this?

The Rhettster is the big 01

February 26th was Rhett's first birthday, which we enjoyed spending in Charlotte with friends and family. It's hard to believe it's been a year, but I am so looking foward to getting to know Rhett's personality better as he grows.

Rhett started out the day with climbing in his sisters' stroller. Climbing, what a fun stage that is...



Later that night we went to watch Calvin's basketball game. Rhett loved it and watched most of the game.



This is Rhett on his first piece of cake...



This is Rhett's second piece of cake...



This is Rhett's third piece of cake, yes I said third...



And this is the finished product. His belly hardly fit in the chair after all that!



Where would a 1 year old be without his super hero pjs?

"Mommy, Can We Play Out In The No (Snow)?" -Lydia

Well, surprise, surprise.....it snowed, and snow it did! We got at least 6 inches last night of wonderful powdered snow. The kids (Jim included) are still out there as I write traipsing around Smyrna. Here's a few pictures from this morning.

Jim decided to get the ski's out this morning and test them out while taking the girls for a ride.



I pulled Rhett around on the sled while he giggled and he even went sledding for the first time. This is the most I could get him to look up, he was too interested in the white stuff.
