Aunt Karen

When it rains, it pours.  My Aunt Karen passed away last night.  The same day as Bobby's dad's funeral.  
Karen was one of my biggest cheerleaders.  She would come to my basketball games when I played close to her, she loved my children and found them entertaining (even though they seemed to be crazy wild any time we would visit her).  
I really don't care for this run we are on.  Though both Karen and Bob were not living the lives they wished they were in terms of health, we had hopes that they would both recover.  Two people, way too young to leave this world.  Karen, you will be missed.

Yesterday the world lost a great husband, father and grandfather. Bobby's dad left us way too soon.  My heart hurts for all the memories that will not be made but I smile thinking of all the ones that were. Rest in Peace Bob.

Tooth #3

The tooth was hanging on by a thread at bedtime. She tried to get it herself...nope. She tried letting her brother pull it....nope. Finally mom, the ultimate tooth puller plucked it out. No tears, only smiles!

Birthdays, Games, and School Oh My!

It's been a week since I posted!  We've been getting back in the routine of school and activities. We really enjoyed our Christmas break but it is nice to be back on our regular schedule. 

Ryan turned 11 on Monday!  We had family over and enjoyed pizza, cake and cracked up  listening to him guess what his presents were on his iPad. 

"I need a bib!"

Molly started gymnastics this week and really seemed to enjoy it. Loving this age of trying different activities to see what the kids like most. I'm afraid if she keeps growing gymnastics won't be the best fit...

Molly and Matthew also have their first basketball games this weekend. Molly was a little shy for her first game but by the last play was starting to come out of her shell.

Fun Toy

I picked this fun toy up after Christmas on clearance. It's Polymer clay and plastic accessories that you build into a snowman which slooooowly melts. You can do it over and over again and the kids love it!  These pics were taken over a few hours.
