so what do you do when you have a 4 day weekend?

 Well if you are Jason you play with fruit!!! I am telling you this kid played with our fruit for hours!! He made different towers, and designs. And other than a few bruises on our bananas there was no harm done :) and it was the best entertainment!
 He had to have a very steady hand, had to get everything just right......
 hmmm now where to put this last pear..
 ta da! the proud moment. and the masterpiece. not sure what to call it. but it sure was a lot of fun!
This is another of his masterpieces. We sure laughed for a long time over what can entertain that kid!

what we've been up to

 Well here are my two presidents!!! They made these cute little masks at school, and were SO excited to come home and show me, but the cutest part was they knew that they had to stand in front of the door and pose for a picture! they know me so well! and they are so adorable! I love them so much!
And here are my winterized babies! All wrapped snuggled in their caps! How CUTE are they? I totally love them they look ready for some serious cold weather and guess what.....we are getting it!

I've caught a cold!

So as crazy as it sounds, it is true, I have caught a cold IN MY THUMB!!!! I know you are all laughing hysterically right now, and I have to say, it sounds insane, but my thumb started hurting, like really bad, about 5 weeks ago, I can't really remember hurting it per say, I mean, I chopped wood, I did a lot of dishes (ok so dishes really can't hurt, but a girl can try) but nothing really stood out to say this is it!!! So I FINALLY went to the Dr. and he said that nothing is broke, and it doesn't seem as if the ligaments or tendons are torn, so what he thinks it is, is that there was a virus in my body that settled in the joints of my thumb! And my thumb was a little sore from something, possibly chopping wood, who knows, maybe vaccuming, (guess the kids better take over) so he gave me some antinflamitories (sp??) to take for the next month, but it could take up to 5 more months to get my thumb over its cold, Is this crazy???? I just want my thumb better, why can't I just soak it in nyquil???

No we are not totally in hibernation!! This has just been a rough winter on us! We have We have not been out and about since christmas and have not been able to visit with the family! And we miss you all. But as you all know, basketball is in full swing, and with 2 kids playing, that schedule is greuling. But we only have 3 more weeks then freedom, sweet freedom. Joey and Alli each practice 2 nights a week, and that doesn't include dance, swimming 2 times a week, scouts young men, and homework! then we have basketball games all day saturday! Its a crazy schedule. So when I have a chance to have little fun I jump at the chance. Joey was being very smart mouthed the other day, I know you are all shocked thinking 'not joey' but its true, it was joey, and I had made some very yummy very frosted cupcakes, and we were just sitting down to eat them, and I had had enough!!! so I went over to him and smashed my cupcake all over his face!! Well he didn't take it very well and it turned into a full fledged food fight between me and him and brian! I still think I won :)
