Spring Program

London had her spring program at preschool, and it was too precious! She sang five songs (with motions) and did a fantastic job! I can't believe she is almost finished with her first year of preschool. She is a precious girl and more fun everyday! (As I type this, London's entertaining Noble in his crib (he just woke up from his nap) so he won't cry, and I hear a lot of sweet giggles from his room, it's so nice to have a little helper!)

The girl loves to cook

Which is why I have about 40,000 pictures of her cooking. London decided James needed cupcakes for his birthday, and she whipped some right up (with a little guidance.) :)

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!

This post has absolutely nothing to do with London or Noble

Just a disclaimer. It does, however, have to do with my super exciting, makes me want to dance, really got lucky find on craigslist. If I have talked to you at all in the last two years of my life, you'll know that I've been on the hunt for a 'new' table. I've been more than patient with our old table that scratched my children's heads when they crawled underneath and lovingly left brown stains on the carpet where the legs were. Not that it didn't have it's good qualities too, I never had to worry about the surface (Formica doesn't scratch, stain, or show any kind of where or tear that I can see), and we have eaten at that table since James and I have been married (almost 6 years). So I'm not about to chop it into kindling, but I am ready to say goodbye and move on to my fabulous find.

Meet our new table. And before you giggle and smirk at my odd taste (and the fact that the table looks like it belongs in my great grandmother's house), let me explain myself.
First off, I wanted something unique.
Second, I wanted something 'vintage' (which really just goes back to point #1).
And third I wanted something that had no sharp corners (for little heads toddling around it),not too big (for our small eating area), but that could become big (when we have friends and family over), and that was ooozing with charm and character.....whalaaa.

(Here it is again, in case you didn't get a good enough look the first time.)
I love everything from her (I guess I've decided it's a she)little gold glazed double pedestal bottom, to her gorgeous dark stained top. But I'm not finished with her yet, although, she is in great condition, considering she's around 40 yrs. old. No, I have plans for this little (sometimes big) table.

He just can't be getting this big

Noble surprises me everyday with what he can do. I guess I just expect him to be my 'baby' forever.
We were blowing bubbles on the front porch the other night and I was trying to help Noble dip the wand in and then blow bubbles. Well, he became very frustrated with my 'help', so I let him take over. Not only could he dip the wand in himself, but he held it up in front of his mouth and blew. Then he preceded to look up at me and smile (in a way that clearly said, "see mom, I told you I could do it").

Of course, the bubble wand did eventually make it into his mouth, very baby like of you Noble.

Duck, Duck,


I'll file these away in the "if James ever needs convincing that we need more children" folder.

Just following the usual cycle...

blog, take 4 week break, blog, take another extended break, and now it's time again to blog. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We missed seeing our families, but we had a great time hanging out with our friends here in Kansas. Here's some of my favorite pics.

And here's Noble getting ready for his first big Easter egg hunt.

And just in case you haven't shared in enough of our Easter weekend festivities, here are a few more moments to share in...

London and Addie dyeing Easter eggs.

London took this picture herself, she was very proud of their eggs (that she declared she was going to 'hatch' and then eat).

And last, but not least, some of the bunnies we unearthed in our vegetable garden on Easter weekend, very fitting (and adorable, even if you aren't into furry little animals).
