1 Warm Day

Gracie has been asking for weeks to go to the park and even when it looked sunny it was way to cold or muddy to take it on.  But we got one warmer day and headed to the park to enjoy some much needed freedom to run.

literally loving every minute.  they only stopped 
for this picture because I bribed them with a treat.
also we did a bunch of side walk coloring
for some reason my daughter is under the impression 
that I can make and draw anything so when she 
asked for a rapunzel I thought well I can try
above she is in her tower with her very long hair
the hill with the water fall that just had to be added

Sweet Time

Like I mentioned we were spoiled having Daddy home for a week and he took in every minute.  Even while I made us a big breakfast the snuggles were endless.  They really need this daddy time.

On one of the days daddy was home we headed out to do something warm, something that made us feel like summer was someday going to come.  And yes we have been here before, but this time daddy got to come.  Gracie and Nolan loved it and loved showing daddy everything.

Hide & Seek

Once a day we have to play hide & seek, it's Gracie's favorite game.  Nolan has learned the art of covering his eyes and counting.  He has also learned how to peak, little bugger.

I love his little hands!

We were so excited that daddy was getting to spend a week with us.  This meant I got some one-on-one time with Gracie.  I took her to the Arts & Stark event to celebrate Heros.  

Or first stop was to get a our faces painted.  She was not really up for the super hero options so she asked for a purple and pink butterfly.  Luckily the very nice volunteer was more then happy to help and really talented.  Check it out!

She then made a crown.  Below the super hero is telling her what her super power was....

 Gracie with a couple super hero's.  Mr Hulk is daddy's favorite so we thought it would be fun!

1st Hair Cut

My little nol just had his first hair cut.  Not that the little guy had much hair but it had a plenty of long pieces &  a curly loop in the back I wanted gone.  This was nothing like Gracie's hair cut!  Nolan never sat still!

 a moving hair cut very interesting

I love this guy!

 hugging his stickers
 even getting use out of the box
 loving her new princess set
 these happy nappers are so annoying but 
I have gotten use to them.  the kids LOVE them!

My Little Dancing Girl

This is purely for the grandparents just so you can see how much this little girl really loves to dance.  She now makes me sit and watch as she performs.  Poor Nolan I see a future of Gracie making him be apart of these some how.

In the past couple of months I have been video taping the kids ALOT!  So, instead of posting each one when I am so far behind I have added them to  vimeo link and you can watch all of them or none of them, the choice is yours.  Yes there are some old ones but certain people seem to forget how to get back and see them so I am just making it a little easier, love ya!

so funny

My little man is just so crazy and never seems to surprise me.  On this day Nolan was taking an extra long nap and I went in to wake him up and found him like this, I actually had to cover my mouth as I burst out laughing and ran for my phone to show Troy.  hilarious

This past weekend I came up to get nolan from his bed and found this.  
how does he come up with this stuff.  so funny!
this comes from me...;)

love hate

At the beginning Nolan would sleep through the sound of the vacuum, it just didn't bother him.  Now he yells at it, will open the closet door where it is parked and talk to it.  On this day the relationship changed yet again.  After I got done vacuuming the living room this is what I found my sweet boy doing.
