Bike Riding

Today we took the training wheels off of Emma's bike. She is so excited now to be able to "ride a two-wheeler". Way to go Emma!!

Today our Saturn hit 100,000 miles. We bought it in August of 2000. It was pretty cool to watch it turn.

Clay likes to take the girls out to do fun things so mom can get a break. This weekend, mom was away at a scrapbook retreat. I left at 1:00 pm on Friday to drive out to West Virginia with Betsy and Melinda. We didn't get back home until almost 5:00 pm on Sunday. It was awesome! I got 95 pages done!!

Bowling has become a new favorite for the girls. It may have something to do the the Wii. Emma usually scores around 215 on the Wii, but it real life it is not as easy. However, she still manages to get a couple of strikes.

This is Rebekah right after she bowled. And that is her ball STILL going down the alley. You could go get some fries at the counter and come back and her ball would still be rolling down the alley. What a cutie.

Sometimes in the bleak of winter, you have to take a moment to remember what makes you happy. Just the little things.

This makes me happy. My new collection of cobalt glass on the windowsill above the kitchen sink. As long as the sun is shining through the glass, I don't mind cleaning the piles of dishes.

Walking through a scrapbook store. All the scrapbook stores around here closed. It has been a long time since I have been inside an actual scrapbook store. It made me so happy to go and see all the pretty paper lined up in neat rows.

Sleeping children. That may be why I take so many pictures of Rebekah at nap time.

Fun with trash

You know how it is. Kids have more fun with boxes than they do with any toys you could buy them. Here is the proof. We must have done this for about an hour.
