Happy St. Patricks Day

After school I wanted to get a few pictures of the girls because they looked so cute in their 'green' clothes, but they were not very cooperative! I did actually get Jenna to look at me for a couple.

Not the best back ground, but they actually sat together here.

Jenna spent more time running from the camera, and Tay tried to be good, but was quickly bored.
They seem to be getting to big lately saying the funniest things. I really wish I would write more of them down when they say them. Just tonight I asked Jenna which book she wanted before bed and it is usually Brown Bear, Colors or Passie book, but tonight she says Dr. Seuss!
We have been working with Taylor on her reading (thanks to Blake who loaned us his hooked on phonics book) and she has been doing so good. Tonight especially it is like it finally clicked, she flew through 3 books and now only has one left. Of course it is still a challenge sometimes to get her to sit down and focus enough to actually even attempt to learn. But... I told her is she read 28 book then we would work on getting her a Nintendo DS. She has been asking for one since last summer. Well now she is flying right along... I may have to call in some reinforcements.... (AKA Grandma, Grandpa, Mimi, Papa, Granny and Papa ) So I think I am going to change and offer her a dollar for every book she reads!

Winter Fun and some random fun!

Papa and Daddy helped the girls make a big snowman.

Beautiful woods in the snow.

Daddy and Jenna took a little spin on the four wheeler.

The girls dressed Chase up with a little princess crown.

We took the girls to the RV show a few weeks ago to look at some campers.

Sledding at home.

Getting ready to shovel the driveway!

First time bundled up together for the winter.

Sweet little Jenna Bean!

Kindergarden Field Trip

Last week I joined Taylor on a field trip and spent the morning bowling with a bunch of 5 and 6 year olds. Here is Tay with her friend Sarah.
