Off to Cowboy Country

Tomorrow I leave to go here for this with them.

I will miss by babies and my husband while I sit through meetings all day (even on Sunday!)

No blogging until I return!

But I will leave you with one picture.

Yesterday I got BANGS!

I look forward to your comments on the new style

Sick Day

Today I had a sick day.

I spent ALL day in bed.

What there really any doubt that I wouldn't eventually end up this crud since my whole family has had it?

But of course it had to hit me days before I leave on a business trip...

Alligator bait

Today at school Ben's class read There's an Alligator Under My Bed by Mercer Mayer.

His teacher then asked him what he would use for alligator bait.

Ben's answers:

Eggs, Pizza and Strawberries

Of course!!!

Indian Lake, here we come!

Papa is going to put his boat in the lake this summer and we are all ready with our new lifejackets!!!

Super Hero

When Ben wears these jammies he runs around saying

"I'm Fatman!"

Obviously he has not noticed that it is a bat on the front and back

Bend it like Bennett

Have you seen the movie Bend it like Beckham?


Then I guess only Matt will appreciate the title of my post!

Anyway, on Saturday Mr. J. Bennett had his first day of soccer practice! From 9-9:45 Ben and about 20 other 2 and 3 year olds ran their hearts out while trying to score goals. It was pretty adorable!

Ben loved it! Like some kids would lose focus and run off and do their own thing, Ben was so engaged the whole time.

Ella had a chance to run around on the field before practice started. She was so upset when Matt took her off they he had to take her to McDonalds to make her feel better

The class had a lot more parent participation than I had expected. Seriously, by 9:15 I was exhausted!

Oh how I love my little soccer player! Can't wait for next Saturday!

Here comes Peter Cottontail

If you like lots of pictures, including ones of the most unrealistic Easter Bunny you have ever seen, then you will LOVE this post. Unfortunately, you will have to wait until the very end to see the bunny (I am going to keep you in suspense!)

Last weekend we headed to Canton to spend Easter with my family. On Saturday we headed over to my sister's house so the kids could enjoy the day with their cousins.

First on the agenda.... bike rides to the playground (for the big kids)! (the little ones had to settle for the stroller)

Later Saturday evening, everyone assembled at my parents for Easter dinner and an Easter basket hunt. Here the kids are assembling to hear Papa give the instructions for the hunt.
My parents took pictures of locations in their house and put them on bunny shaped cutouts. The kids had to follow the picture clues to eventually find their Easter baskets.

Ben and Ella woke up on Sunday morning to find that the Easter Bunny had left them ANOTHER Easter Basket!

Ben was so excited to see that the bunny brought him Buzz Lightyear!

And Ella's favorite gift..... her new "Little Mermaid" glasses!

We then met up with the Weber's again for Brunch at Shady.

And now for the moment you have been waiting for! Ben and Ella meet the Ella meet the Easter Bunny! This picture really doesn't do it justice. It was a TERRIBLE looking bunny!

Then it was time for the Easter egg hunt on the golf course!

Although we had a great weekend, we ended it with two sick kids, and then a few days later a sick daddy and a sick Gigi!
