Its almost May!

Wow, I can't believe its almost May! I love love love summer, but this year is flying by! Why doesn't the winter go this fast? The weather was great a couple weeks ago...almost 90 degrees and we got out to Forest Park and the backyard for some fun, but lately all we've had is rain and tornados! Its devistating all the damage that was done in Bridgeton, we were really lucky not to be hit by it.

May is going to be a fun and busy month and then its vacation time! We're having a garage sale this weekend and I just can't wait! I'm getting clausterphobic in this house. We really don't have as much stuff as I think we would if we were in a bigger house! We defintely have outgrown the place, but in the meantime until we move I'm gonna get rid of whatever I can! I'm the person who looks at things and says "oh I remember wearing this, I can't get rid of it", or "oh, this would be good if I ever go to _____", but a year later, still haven't worn it, but not this year! This year it all goes! AND.....I can't believe it, but I'm getting rid of lots and lots of baby clothes! That was the hardest! Yes, I still want another baby, but I figure its a 50/50 chance of having a girl and one baby can never wear all the clothes we have, so Im getting rid of any that aren't my very favorites. My very favorites are the little polo dresses, or the too cute matching outfits or special things they were given. It was really hard and I was almost in tears, but I manages to come up with about 5 tubs of clothes and shoes. I have to send the kids away too cuz I'm gettin rid of tons of toys too! They will never miss em! It will feel so nice to de-clutter and have some extra money for our VACA!

So vacation begins Memorial weekend...can't wait! The girls are going with Mawmaw and Pawpaw and driving down to Gulf Shores. Mommy and Daddy are going to the Indy 500 with my dad and the family for memorial weekend. We are taking Granpa's ashes to be spread at the his request! I would never miss that in a million years. The man went to Indy for over 50 years and kept those same 16 tickets and took so many people over the years. They are some of my greatest memories of him and the tradition will continue. After the race on Sunday we will drive down to Gulf Shores to meet them along with Jason's aunt and uncle, cousins, and kids for the week. It should be a great time! We've got two condos which will be nice for cooking, sleeping and letting the kids play. There are a couple nice pools and we are right on the beach too. The kids will have some friends to play with and Jason's cousins are close in age to us, so it should be fun for all. counting the days....

These are some sunny pictures we took at Turtle park a couple weeks ago. It was hot that day. Tried to get a few spring pics, but we didn't get as many as we hoped. Still I love a little girl in a shirt dress! Aww...

Happy Easter

I think I said this last year, but Easter is turning into Christmas! I do definitely like for my kids to get something other than candy, but presents and big items really aren't necessary! Last year they got a swingset. This year the Easter Bunny brought a water table...along with all the other stuff....DVD's, bubbles, toys, etc. And not to mention the other gifts and baskets from Grandma's and aunt Julie.
It was a good Easter, besides the wet weather :( We were sad we couldn't go outside for our Easter egg hunts, but we did get one in on Sunday. Of course I didn't get very many good pictures because by then they were tired, crabby, and not looking so pretty anymore! lol!
