Park with a stream and playground!
2008-04-17 12:22:00
What more could a kid ask for than a nice day at the park with a ton of friends. The big kids braved the icy water but the little ones didn’t enjoy it as much (especially when they fell in). So we’ll have to make a bunch of trips once the weather is warmer. We ...

One week until the CHICKENS come!
2008-04-16 14:21:00
I am nervous but excited about the impending arrival of 6 baby chicks next Wednesday (4 Ameraucanas and 2 Wyandottes). I’ve been reading up on chickens but a lot of whats written isn’t that helpful to the beginner. I worry they’ll die somehow and the kids will get upset. They will be shipped to us ...

Unplugged Project: FOOD!
2008-04-14 12:31:00
I had intentions of doing the last 2 unplugged projects but the kids don’t always like my suggestions and even passed up “want to find rocks and paint them?”. This week is FOOD so there was no way for them to turn down that! The first thing that came to mind was fruit (we’re having a ...

Spikey Returns!
2008-04-13 13:52:00
Our beloved backyard garter snake, Spikey, has returned. This is the 3rd Spring we have found Spikey living by our porch, but this year we spotted a skinny little friend with him. They were both skittish, but Spikey stuck his head out to say hello.

I’ve been buying a lot of fruit for the kids lately. We always buy fruit but they’ve been on a BIG fruit kick so I’ve been introducing some more variety for them. I had to take a picture of this mini watermelon next to the HUGE grapefruit (a pummelo I think?) and I threw in ...

I’m so excited we have been able to spend HOURS and hours outside this week! Its the first week I’ve felt that winter is finally over here. The kids are loving it and so am I. We’ve been to the park, climbed trees, played sports in our driveway a lot and best of all had ...

Diaper Goop!
2008-04-09 14:53:00
It’s great when I get the offer to review something that I might not have heard of otherwise. When the Parent Bloggers Network let me know about Diaper Goop I was very willing to try it because its fragrance free and made with natural Lanolin! Also with three kids I still hadn’t found one product ...

10+ weeks and all is well!
2008-04-09 13:33:00
Yay, I had my appointment yesterday and a second ultrasound and everything was great! What a big change from the little blob I saw with last months ultrasound, this time there were arms and legs moving all around and even fingers wiggling! I couldn’t see a face though, just the top and back of the ...

Cameras for Kids
2008-04-07 14:09:00
Ethan has always been interested in taking pictures, not surprising considering how often he sees his parents taking pictures. A couple years ago we decided to get him the Fisher Price Kid Tough digital camera. This camera looked perfect…two eye viewfinder, simple controls, and durable. Ethan was excited about his present and ...

I found this great Lego time line on Digg a few weeks ago. Some of our Legos date back to the 60’s, like the wheels on this flying car Ethan built.

Why is my Mac talking to me?
2008-04-03 14:54:00
Jamie has become very fascinated with our new Mac and loves hammering on the keyboard. When I see her headed that way I’ll startup Alpha Baby so she can play without accidentally deleting something. The other day, however, she worked some magic on the keyboard and suddenly the Mac was speaking to us. ...

Sorry for the brief lunchtime outage.  Our site is now running the latest Wordpress (2.5).  We’ve been playing with the release candidates for over a week and now we’re on the official release and so far I am loving it.  I’ll write more later, but for now I will just say that the upgrade was, ...
They?re all ours and Baby #4 in the works!
2008-04-01 12:44:00
Last night at the grocery store a woman asked us if “those are all yours?”, did she think we just picked up an extra kid while shopping? Are 3 kids really that many? What will people say when we add a fourth? Yes, I’m pregnant again and this time it seems like it will be good! ...

Review: Thomas & Friends Engines and Escapades
2008-03-31 14:18:00
I have been a fan of Thomas since my little brothers were toddlers and my kids are lucky to have a lot of their hand me down Thomas trains. We already have six Thomas DVDs, and they are great, so I jumped at the Parent Bloggers Network’s offer to review Engines and Escapades. I have ...

Yesterday started with the boys being rabbits but by afternoon Ben was a kitty cat and asked for a bowl of milk (and then once he got it he asked for some rice krispies too). I did give him a spoon in case he wanted it but whats the fun in that! He was a ...

I Ordered Our Chickens!
2008-03-17 20:04:00
I may be the only one excited about it right now but I am very EXCITED that I called and ordered our baby chicks today. It looks like we’ll be picking them up from the post office on April 23rd. That gives me some time to prepare. I couldn’t get the Golden Buff I wanted ...

Baseball Blackeye
2008-03-15 13:24:00
Baseball injury season started early for us Wednesday morning when Ethan and Ben decided to play catch before school. I let them play catch in the house with a squishy baseball but Ben couldn’t find it and he threw Ethan a real hardball, and it didn’t land in Ethan’s glove. I had Ethan ice it ...

My boys have always loved to dress up and over the years we’ve collected quite a collection of stuff. It had been in a basket but about a year ago it took over the big white toy chest that had been “the sports box”. Now that Jamie is getting bigger we’re starting to see some ...

Ben vs Reuben
2008-03-12 13:22:00
When you want to get some cute pictures of your kids with the dog, tell them to breathe gently on the dogs nose. Reuben may look innocent, but he had it coming. Someone’s looking for trouble. Do I smell doughnuts? Unfortunately, I missed the action shot, but you can figure out what happened.

Mink, Hawks, and Vultures oh my!
2008-03-11 17:26:00
I had an eventful commute to work today and spotted numerous animals.  A first for me was seeing a mink running across the road from one pond to another.  I thought it was a large, skinny squirrel at first until I got a closer look. Once I was on the highway I started looking at the ...
