From skating to recipes!

So here goes another long catch up blog so just forgive me!!
I guess I will start with the furthest back which was our valentine's party at the Baird's house. We came over and let the kids cut out cookies and then decorate them, everyone went home with a goodie bag and of course valentines cards. I love doing this kind of stuff with my kids that or left at home because Kahlan always feels left out when connor comes home from school with goodies and other stuff on holidays! Everyone had a great time!

We brought the kids roller skating for the first time and they actually both did really good especially connor. By the time we left he was convinced that is where he wanted to have his next birthday party so it's safe to say he really liked it.

Connor had to dress up as his favorite book character for school. Dutch and connor have been reading Tom Sawyer for awhile and so that is what he picked. I basically put the outfit together by making a trip to Goodwill, and I think he looked great! He also won student of the month for Feb. and I was so proud of him. We had some behavior issues at the beginning of the year and he has been so well behaved lately this was just the icing on the cake!

The kids also got to go up to where Drew works and he brought them inside the B52 plane and let them sit in the cockpit and try on his helmet. It was a great thing for them to be able to do and see.

Last but not least I wanted to share this recipe I did with the kids. The kids love doing this recipe and they love eating them and it is a much healthier way to do Popsicle's!
Popsicle sticks
low fat yogurt

Cut the bananas in half, and put them on the Popsicle sticks. Roll the bananas in the yogurt and then in the granola. Then put finished product in freezer for at least 3 hours and then enjoy!!

Need advice

I started making these frames this week, and I think they are cute so I was going to make some more and put them in reruns are fun or maybe try Craig's list (Angela says they sale alot of crafts on there). So basically I want to know #1 if you would pay for these at all, and #2 if you would how much would you pay. Be honest my feelings won't get hurt!

So much to catch up on!

Well we have had a pretty busy weekend so let me get started! Saturday Kahlan went with her cousin to Zoey's World, which is this place in pierre bossier mall where they dressup and pamper little girls just for fun! She had her hair and makeup done as well as having a pedicure, manicure, and facial! Kahlan is all girl so she was really into it as you can see from the below pictures! On a side note I really did try to get her to pick something besides the blue hair but she really wanted it!

Getting ready to get there hair done!

Getting ready for there pedicures!

Enjoying there facials!

All done up!

Sunday we had Cole's first B-day, and while I really wanted it to be relaxing and fun it did not exactly work out that way. I had an indoor party planned, but changed it last minute because the weather said it would be 73 and overcast, but no rain I changed it to Brownlee park so the kids could run around and play! Well the wind was like a tornado, there was no hint of sun, and about the time my one year old started shoving cake into his face we started feeling the first sprinkles! A little part of me wanted to cry as everyone rushed to shove stuff in cars. I know I am being ridiculous, its not like he will remember any of this and if you look at the pictures it looks like it went off without a hitch, but it was his first birthday and it definatly did not go as planned!

Cole's B-Day cake!
He loved that balloon!

This was defiantly his favorite part!

My cute nephew!

Today I took Cole to get his first haircut, and I was definatly a little nervous, but his hair was getting a little unruly. I was so surprised he did so well! I didn't have to hold him in my lap are fight him to be still, he just sat on the little booster thing and let her cut his hair. The beautician was amazed to. I must say he is a great kid!

Happy Birthday Cole!!!

Cole turned One years old today!! He has been a real joy to have! Let me lay out some facts.
Cole is crawling, pulling up, and cruising while holding on to something. He has eight teeth, four across the top, four across the bottom. He says momma, but only when he is upset. He decided all on his own that he was done with baby food. He loves bananas, nutri-grain bars, pasta pickups, and he recently got hold of a powdered donut and went crazy. He weighs 19 lbs. 13 oz., he is extremely ticklish, and loves when his siblings show him any kind of attention! The following is an overview of Cole's first year. I know it is long I apologize, but he is my last baby!!
