Becca's New Skirt

Ok I just made this skirt for Becca out of Colby's old pants. I just cut them below the knee holes, added the pink material and wa-la. It took me about 1 1/2 hrs. I had to do it for enrichment night next month. It's super easy, and pretty darn cute I think :)

What Summer Break is Over??

What the heck happened to summer break being forever? I guess I missed it somewhere!! Here is a quick update of our crazy life:

Chris is working hard as usual. They started working 10 hr days so he is exhausted when he gets home, but LOVES having 3 day weekends.
I just finished 3 summer classes last week, and am getting ready for the fall semester to start on the 23rd. I'm taking my last 3 classes and will be applying for the nursing program this fall.
Colby started his 1st day of 1st grade today. He was so excited to go back to school. He also started flag football practice this week.
Becca was ready to start school today, but has to wait a bit longer. Her pre-school screening is next week and then they will start after labor day. She got signed up for dance and gymnastics yesterday and starts that next week so she seems to be ok with waiting for school.
Macie, well she is just EVERYWHERE. We have starting potty training a little, so she has now starting potty training her babies as well. She puts them up there, tells them to go, then flushes the toilet and tells them good job and claps before getting them off. It is too funny!
Well that is the latest and the greatest on our family. Wish I was better on updating but oh well.

He really was more excited than he looks!!

Good Job Hawks!!

Colby had his last T-Ball game tonight. They had a great season, and he has really improved his game. Tonight his coach even pitched to them, rather than hitting off the tee, and he did pretty good. My cousin Justin was the Coach and his son Wyatt was on the team, so it was fun to watch them play together! We can't wait for Coach Pitch next year!

Becca's 4th Birthday

Becca had her birthday last week. Her theme was My Little Pony's. She had a great day, thanks to everyone who came and helped her celebrate!

Her Rainbow Dash cake

Aunt Lisa is an Elmo freak, and got her some Elmo tickle mittens! They are the cutest thing ever!!

This is what we got her. They LOVE it!!

Colby's Kindergarten Graduation

Colby graduated Kindergarten last Wednesday. He got student of the month, along with a math award. He has learned so much this past yr, we are so proud of him. He can't wait to be a 1st grader so he can ride on the merry-go-round (kindergartner's weren't allowed to)!

Our little graduate!!

He finally got student of the month. He has been not so patiently waiting for it!

His teacher Mrs Gomez, she is amazing!!

Becca's Spring Dance Recital

Becca had her recital a couple of weeks ago. She was so excited to dance on the "big stage as long as we sat close so she could see us". She did really good, and we are so proud of her. I can't believe how big she is getting.

She is the 2nd from the left

School Break

I have survived this semester, along with my family. I have about a 3 week break and I'm so excited so hopefully I will do something fun so I can have something to post!! For now it is going to have to be about all the things I need to get done around the house that have been put on the back burner.

Colby started T-ball again, and as soon as I get my head screwed back on straight and remember the dang camera I will post some pictures. He is doing SO good, it's amazing what the difference of a year makes!

Becca has her dance recital tomorrow so (if I remember the camera) I will post some pictures of that too. He is doing great and LOVES dance!

Macie is a little ball of fire. She is talking in sentences, and won't keep her diaper on!! I'm guessing she might be ready to try the potty, but we just took the bottle away 2 days ago, so 1 thing at a time. She is growing to fast as it is.

Chris is just working hard and really excited to be starting his new work schedule next week. They are going to 10 hr days so he will be off on Friday's now too. Which makes me excited too.

That's all for now, but check back soon and I might surprise you with an update :)

This year we stayed home for Easter because Chris was on call. We went to dinner at his parents and had a nice relaxing day.

Today was the last day of Spring Break, and such a nice one at that. We went for a ride in the rhino with some friends. It was SO pretty where we went to. The wild flowers were everywhere. The kids had a blast. It was nice to relax a little after a crazy week.

Cactus and Wild Flowers

I love that they were in the middle of the road too!!

They were wore out....and look at the sweetest big bro ever letting his sister lay on his lap!!

Out of touch

Well I started school a couple weeks ago and have been out of touch with life since then. Why didn't I pay more attention when I went to college the first time?? I'm taking math and anatomy and they are kicking my butt. I spend pretty much all of my time doing homework. Hopefully I will get the hang of it soon and figure out how to balance family, work, housework, and school. My hubby has been a great help with the kids and housework, he really is the BEST!! Well hopefully I will be able to post soon, or else it will probably be spring break!!
