One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Visit from Grammie

My mom is in town visiting from Michigan -- and the kids are having a ton of fun! They absolutely love playing and reading with their Grammie.
She brought Noah a jacket for his birthday -- a little Carhart jacket advertising my dad's business. Just like the big boys wear!!!

Grammie was also here to witness a big event.... Evelyn's first real haircut. She had long straggly ends... and I have to admit... she had a little bit of a mullet -- so we got her hair evened out a little bit. She was so excited for her first haircut!

Not sure if you noticed, but I added a new ticker to the top... I am going on vacation the end of April with my college girlfriend Liz. I CAN"T WAIT!! I haven't done anything like this since before the kids were born! I mean -- I love Travis, Evelyn & Noah... but this is going to be a TRUE vacation for me :) The countdown is on! The bikini shape-up, too!!

Bathroom Humor/Entertainment

Evelyn still isn't potty trained... no judgement, please... I am already feeling a little incompetent as it is... but we are working on it!

Here is Evelyn "trying"... and Noah coming to see what is going on...
He decides to sit down and keep Evelyn company...

And then starts the entertainment!!They crack me up :)

Every Monday Brings a Fresh Start

Not much to say except for I have been in quite the funk lately... haven't been able to make lemonade from lemons, look on the bright side, find the silver lining in the clouds... whatever you want to call it, for some reason I haven't been able to shake it. Good thing I didn't register in advance for the 10K -- I was too busy having a pity party to actually go and run the race :(

I think it was the combination of work frustration... being sick for what seems like 2 weeks straight... having some lingering ankle pain... which all affected my running/work-out routines.

Good news -- I ran close to 8 miles last night (my punishment for not running the race in the AM) with minimal ankle issues... and I also woke up with only a hint of sinus congestion this morning -- I think I have finally turned the corner!! Hooray for Monday -- a fresh start again :)

To end with some more good stuff -- here are some tub pics:

New Haircut & New Friends

I know this isn't going to make Grammy happy -- but Noah got a haircut -- and it is short!! (she likes little boys with longer hair) I think it looks pretty cute :)
The new haircut shows off Noah's special "birthmark" or whatever you want to call it... He has a small patch of hair on the back of his head that is brown. It always has been -- and probably always will be. It is much less noticeable with longer hair because it gets covered more with the hair above it. Again -- I think it is pretty cute :) Noah's "I'm sick of you taking my picture" face:

Not to be forgotten, here is Miss Evelyn on the swings:
She is doing much better at school these days and making a lot of new friends. She told me on Friday that Taylor is her best friend. (Taylor is a cute blonde girl in her class) Then she told me that Taylor is always in time-out though... I guess Evelyn is already running with the bad crowd!! :)
