Random Silly Pictures

Ugh I am having the hardest time with the new photo uploader.  I can't seem to get text where I want it, and it shows up as a link (which it isn't)...ugh... can I go back to the other editor? Ok enough whining....  But here are a couple new ones.  The aren't related but they are all random fun things we have done in the last week.

Avery and her peanut butter.  She was so proud that she cut her own bread and made her own sandwich... and I thought she was awfully cute doing it.
This is Avery painting the window.  It seemed like a good idea at the time (yes it was made for windows) but it wasn't so fun when I spent an hour scraping it off.

Block Kids

Yesterday Harrison participated in a construction sponsored Lego contest. It was for kids kindergarten through 5th grade (yes Avery was irritated) and they got 100 Legos, 1 piece of string, 1 piece of tinfoil, and a rock then had one hour to build something related to the construction industry. He had a lot of fun, and I think he is already looking forward to next year. Along with the actual competition they had a lot of fun things for the kids to do. Face painting, snow cones, multiple construction vehicles that they could climb in and push buttons. And it was a gorgeous day! We have had such weird weather lately, it was nice to see the sun!

Ear piercing

So I really don't know where to start to get caught up so I am starting with today and will probably be adding non-chronological posts randomly until we are back to current.

So today Avery got her ears pierced. She asked to have them done a few months ago and we made a deal. I told her that it would hurt a bit (I probably made it sound worse than it would be)but whenever she thought it was worth it we would go. A few months passed, it would come up sometimes but she always said no she wasn't ready. Until last Wednesday. She stayed for all day school with her friends, all of which are already 5 and already have their ears pierced. That was enough. She came home and said "mom I want my ears pierced" and I said "remember it will hurt a bit" and she said "let's go before school tomorrow" and she didn't budge from that point on. I did make her wait until the weekend but this morning we went and put some holes in her ears. She is the proud owner of some fancy rainbow crystal daisies (they only had balls and stars when I got mine done) and she didn't cry or even flinch when they did it. {{big sigh}} She is growing up so fast these days....

I know I know....I'm behind.

I seem to have lost all concept of time lately. I missed posting a ton of things and now I am trying to figure out how to catch it all up. We went to Michigan in December and when we got back were insane trying to get everything done for school and Christmas. Then came Christmas and what ended up being wave one of sickness. The kids spent their entire Christmas break sick. Thank goodness Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Dan braved the virus house and came to visit. Then back to school craziness and wave two of sickness. Both Harrison and Will have been home for an entire week! I am very ready for normal to return... I will probably just post a bunch of random pictures to catch up and go from there.
