March in a nutshell

Sorry it's been so long. Things have been pretty crazy around here. Plus my blog has been accused of taking up schoolwork time. So I am taking another hiatus for two more weeks. I've got to get caught up with school and plan two girl's birthdays. So I'm going to need it. But I will post lots of pictures of the festivities once they are over. Here's some pictures to tied you over.My handsome admirer had these delivered to me. Aren't they beautiful! They are so bright and springy. I love it!

Oma took Monkey, me and my sisters to Disney on Ice. It was really neat and Monkey was in heaven. Those skaters have some amazing skills. My favorite was of course Peter Pan and Tinkerbell.

It was Grandma O's birthday this month and we are so glad she was feeling well enough to celebrate! She's been pretty sick for a few months, but she's fighting it. Go Grandma!

It was also Grandpa Thacker's birthday this month and Lexie made this book for him about his life in Castle Gate. It was pretty incredible. It must have taken a lot of work to put it together. He shared it with us as a family. Unfortunately Bug decided it was more fun to play in Grandma's drapes. If only she were as little as a bug.
Bug also loves to give the Bear a hug when she comes over. Such a sweet girl.
Monkey and cousin E decided to put on a bell parade. They got out all of Grandma's bells and handed them out to everyone we could convince to participate. We each had two or three bells to ring. It was pretty loud. Daddy could hear it outside the house. E came up with the idea to call out letters and if your name starts with that letter you got to ring your bell. Pretty smart thinking I must say. Thanks to everyone who participated. I know Monkey picked a few random winners. But you are all winners in my eyes for participating!
I love my Mother in law's flower garden. The crocuses are popping up and Monkey was so cute sitting there I had to take a picture.

Happy Spring everyone! I hope this bad weather turns sunny again soon. I'll see ya around the 11th of April.

I love Monkey's haircut. She seems so grown up. I can't believe that she turns 5 this year!

I was just going to say that Karen! I love her hair in these pictures, but I am sad I am missing watching her grow up. I can't wait to see you all soon!

Good luck with the birthdays!

David and Tiffany said...

Oh, and good luck with school. Keep hanging on! You're doing great!

Lexie said...

Thanks for the picture of Dad with his book. It was fun to see what it looked like and it looks like a happy time of year at your place. I agree with everyone else, M looks SO grown up!

I luv the pictures! Your girls are so darling and growing up so fast. What little beauties, just like their mom.

You have such a cute cute family!!

Tim, Katie, and Chase said...

I am so impressed you are doing school. I finished up when Chase was 4 months old, and those last 4 months were HARD- but at least he was still content sleeping in his bouncer while I did schoolwork! I can't imagine with two older ones. I am so jealous you went to Disney on Ice. That sounds fantastic!

Here's hoping spring decides to finally make an appearance... I think its about time!
