Last week was spring break, so I didn't have to teach at all. It was so nice. My sister Laurie was in town from Colorado too. We did something fun almost every day. Here was one of the days. We went to Cabella's.(I think that is how you spell it???) If you have never been there and you have little kids....well scratch that, because I like it as much as the if you have never been there you must go. We were there probably 3 or more hours.
Here is the crew of kids we had there.
These 4 girls are always dancing around and when we take picture they seem to always do a dancing pose. Linds tried to pose them but it didn't work out too well.
Here is them on their own. Chase of course poses by showing his muscles.

He likes to wear a hat only when Morgan has a flower in her least now he doesn't want to wear flowers. He sure is cute.
My sisters and me. This is only 3 of the 8. My sister in law Robin was there too, but we didn't get her in any of the pictures.
I love this one of Morgan
I asked her to stand there and at first I did a close up of her with the animals in the background and then I looked down at her feet to see a perfect 1st position. She truly takes after her mom.
Me and my baby boy...except he says, "I not a baby, I a big guy."

More posing by these girls.
Five kids in the shopping cart.
My cute kids.
You can't see the polar bear in the back ground very well but they are pretending to be a bear.
Oh yeah I forgot to mention that going to Cabella's is free. So there is another reason to go there. We will probably be going there again soon so maybe we will see you there. Ha ha...

You all probably thought I wasn't blogging anymore but here I am. I can't believe how long it has been since my last post. Well we are all alive and well. Morgan is 4 years old now. She takes ballet class and dances all over the house and is constantly dressing at least 4 outfits a day. Peter thinks I have corrupted her with the dancing...maybe I have but it sure makes me proud. Chase is 2 and all boy. He loves to be like his dad. He is often saying, "I want daddy home to hold me." He still loves to snuggle which I love so much. Morgan and Chase play so well together, it is so much fun for me to see. Pete is in school and at the end of the summer he will be taking the MCAT. He is very busy, but is doing so well in all his classes. I am so proud of him. As for me just busy with the kids and teaching dance. I will be starting next week on making about 75 life will just be getting busier.

Morgan and Chase both got umbrellas for Christmas and have been waiting for it to start raining so here is there first time out in the rain.

Yep that is right Chase got potty trained in January. It only took about 1 week for him to stop pooping in his underwear and probably only 4 cold showers(well actually only 1 cold shower and after that I just did luke warm bath water).
For the month of February we lived at Paul and Jacquie's house with Rylee and Calvin. It was nice having them around and my kids just love them. So here are a few shots from then.
Rylee always painted Morgan's nails and of course Chase wanted his too. Only it had to be a boy color.
I love this picture. They are so cute.
Calvin is 14 and is taller then me now. What a cutie.
I love this picture he was so happy Calvin let him wear his hat.
After Chase got a hair cut.
I have the best looking family...
That smile makes me melt. I was giving him a hair cut and he is so good. He sits there so Patiently while I take so long to cut his hair.
