Quiet is never good...I thought we had finally got to a point where Brecks could go play on his own without getting into trouble....So as i was putting the dishes away really enjoying the quietness of it, I then realized it was a bit too quiet! So as I walked past the bathroom to little MJ's room I saw him painting his nails...and everything else! There was nail polish everywhere! He climbed on to the sink and got into the medicine cabinet. When I came in fuming he sat there nicely and said "Oh look prettys!" Way to lighten the moment bud.

Back in September Mark taught JJ how to ride her bike without any training wheels! I was so nervous that she was going to eat it, but to my surprise she got on that bike and rode it like it was nothing new! I am amazed at her ability to catch on to things!

In the morning waiting for the bus.
Her first day getting off the bus....I was so excited to see her. Almost like she had been gone for like a week! Her bus driver is Miss Lorella..and JJ LOVES her so much! Lorella calls her, her little cutie petuttie.
Brecken really missed her all day..So while we where waiting for her he kept saying "Oh Bus!" He was really distraught about the whole situation.
Blue eyes..she just hung out in the stroller...my sweet girl.
My friend sent this poem on JJ's first day and it really sums it up!
My sister is five
It's her first day of school.
We wait for the bus,
and everything's cool.
Then the tears!
Gushy things pour form the nose
(gobs and gobs)!
I did my best to calm her
and help her to stay calm.
I said, "She'll be back this afternoon!
So please stop crying Mom!"
I really didn't think it would be that hard to put my baby on a bus to school...but then as we were waiting all of these thoughts and fears overwhelmed me! Thoughts like what if there is a fire, natural disaster, what if some one steals her... I have lost a sense of control..I can't be there to help her if kids are mean...What if they make fun of her...I have to put my trust in the Lord to protect her from here because I can't very well go to school with her. (Although I did contemplate it!)
She came home from school alive..no harm done..and was even excited to go the next day! The first few weeks were really hard though because whenever she would get home it was a crying fest until she went to bed just because she was so tired from being at school all day.
Oh and I did actually follow the bus to school..just to make sure she got off ok! And I may have wrote in permanent marker what bus number was hers..just so she got only on that bus...ok so what I am a freak!
Brecks didn't want to get his picture taken..that stinker
Who knew that cat toys are way better than kid toys?? New to me..but the kids LOVED this little tunnel!

I love this little smiley girl! She melts my heart everyday!

My three...My little mommie...my little mark...and my little sweetie
I love when peek a boo is still fun even though the curtain is see through! It makes it so much more fun to see their faces when they think u can't see them!
He found a portal..perfect size for his index finger!
