Wow! Gas is $1.99 a gallon. I filled up for $30 tonight! I'm gonna enjoy it while it lasts. (It has already gone down another 50 cents now.)

Trampoline fun

Kennedy was excited to share her new birthday trampoline with her brother and sister tonight. So, after bath time, we decided to set it up in our livingroom and let the kids jump 'til their hearts were content! (Real intention... to tire them out.) Boy, did they JUMP, LAUGH, and HAVE FUN! (Oh and YES, we are trying to see how much STUFF we can fit into our one little livingroom. Eventually, it will be moved out to the garage that we are slowly turning into a game room for the kids.)
Now they are all sweaty and in need of another bath. Didn't think that one out logically. What is a mom to do?

"He's so handsome."

Who says Baby #3 doesn't get photographed?
I followed this little guy around to capture these fun memories.
His sisters think he is so handsome.

Miss Kennedy would like to introduce you to her new birthday betta fish. She named him Finney. She makes sure he is fed three times a day. What a responsible girl!

Princess Cinderkennedy is F-O-U-R!

Kennedy counted down the days until her 4th birthday. She had a very fun-filled special day with family, friends, gymnastics, AND Disney on Ice. Her request was to have a "Princess Ariel" birthday party at TRICKS gymnastics. Wish granted. Seeing the smile on her face was worth weathering the RAIN.

Kristin, her gymnastic coach, was more than wonderful. The kids were happy, the party was moving along, the adults were socializing, and I got to sit back and take pictures. All of Kennedy's little friends stretched, danced, played follow the leader, balanced, climbed, swung, bounced, tumbled, trampolined, etc. for the FIRST hour of the party. Shortly afterwards, we moved into the party room. There were cupcakes for all the kids and B-I-G kids to decorate. Yum... Kennedy was so excited!

Birthday girl was the leader.

Below are a few Disney on Ice snapshots from the morning show.

Happy birthday, sweet girl! We love you!

One smart kid coming right up

My sister-in-law, Lisa, e-mailed me tonight with my nephew Austin's first trimester progress report. Had to share this with someone.

"This screen shows a summary of student scores for their current classes and any assignments they have missed. Please note that there may be considerable delay in teachers entering scores."

Student Progress Summary
Student: Austin, 6th Grade

You GO, Austin! I AM SO PROUD OF YOU! Woot-woo! Keep up the good work! Auntie's doing the HAPPY DANCE!

Dirt cheap and civil duty

Never thought I would ever hear Americans say, "Gas is DIRT CHEAP right now. $2.27 a gallon." Remember when gasoline was only 95 cents a gallon? My civil duty is done.
