I have not been good at this blogging thing......

I have not been very good at this blogging thing. I really need to get my act together!!! First, I want to say that I cannot find the cord to my camera so I can post some updates of the kids. Once I find it I need to learn to load the pictures to my computer. I was reading through my blog... wow so much has happened in the past couple of years including another addition to our family! Yes, our sweet little Lauren is already 14 months old! She is soooo much fun and is so spoiled by her older brothers. We now live in the great metropolis of Hartsville, SC. We have been here for almost two years now!! Wow! How time flies!

The boys started school last week! It was a fun week! Spencer is on 1st grade and Trevor is in 3rd. They both have great teachers and are also on the same hallway at school. It is fun dropping them off in the morning and watching them walk into the school together. The other day, when I looked in my rear view mirror and saw them take each others hand and walk side by side into the school. Mmmmmmm, the things that warm a mother's heart! Well, Kevin is letting me know how late it is, so I will call it a night!

The Sun Room is Finally Tiled

Okay, I have no pictures to show off all of my hard work on the sun room, but I have to make a record that the floor is complete! Kevin and the boys went to Hartsville for a week and I stayed home because we have many unfinished projects around the house that need to be completed, plus I had to work. My goal was to tile the sun room while the kids were gone. When I watched DIY, it looked so easy so I figured I could do it as easily as it looked. Well after taking many trips to Home Depot and spending far more than I planned, the tile floor has been installed. I must say that it took me a lot longer than I had planned (they make it look so easy and quick on DIY), and now I have started the painting! The tile looks good (a few errors), however I did not measure to see if I would have enough of the tile that we had on hand. I did run out, however, luckily I started in the middle and worked my way out. I went with a darker tile for the borders and it looks like I deliberately created it that way. Each night when the kids go to bed I have started painting the sun room. Hopefully I will be done by next week.

Arrrgh... Look at all ye Pirates!

Each had to "walk the plank" by jumping off the deck onto the trampoline.

Trevor's 6th Birthday Pirate Party Bash

Captain Slashin Trevor

Trevor and Spencer with their own pirate chest full of loot!

The kids had to walk along the plank blind folded. As they walked the two people on the side crouched lower and lower. The person walking the plank felt like they were getting higher and higher and soon they would fall off the plank. It was so funny. The kids really thought that they were way up in the air.

The pirates got to "swab the deck".

Uncle Scott and Kevin were in Pirates in charge.

The Pirates had to try and sink each others boats with cannon balls.

Each had to "walk the plank" by jumping off the deck onto the trampoline.

Everyone came with their own pirate costume (made by grandma's and me).

Each pirate was instructed on a few basics of how to be a pirate and how to make it throught the "Pirate Boot Camp".

First... No Girls Allowed! Any girls caught on deck would have to walk the plank! Beards will do the trick... and maybe a mean pirate name. Evil Skull Avery, Slashin Tooth Bailyn and Peg Leg Julia.

All Pirates were given their rightful pirate names. Evil Eye Spencer, Swashy Bandit Beck and Captain Slashin Trevor.

Annual Pictures

Trevor 5 yrs.

Spencer 3 1/2 yrs

Vincent 11 mo.

It is a tradition that I take the boys every year and have their pictures made professionally. I figure that this is the least that I can do since I am not good at taking a lot of my own pictures (and seeing that my camera is broken now). I have decided to wait until the beginning of the summer to have the pictures made next year. They are always getting over some illness when I take their pictures in the early Spring, therefore they have dark rings under their eyes and are cranky with the photographer. NEVER AGAIN! I wasn't totally pleased with these pictures, but at least I got a good deal on the package that I bought.
