I need your votes

Which pictures do you like best of a) family and b) Big Chauncey and I? All the pictures are in the post below this one and this.

I want to know which ones I should enlarge, frame, and put on the side of the blog, etc. Love to you all!

NEW Family pictures!! Yea!

This is my favorite-I think...

I also LOVE this pose, the kids weren't cooperating though.

We went to "Prom"!

We had the chance to go to the "Dental Formal" and that it was. It was very much like going to Prom, which was so fun because Chauncey and I never got that chance together! We had so much fun dancing most of the nite! We felt like we didn't have kids!
We didn't bring our camera so these pictures were given to us by friends. These pictures are really blurry. I am not sure why.

Scary picture of us! But it was the only one!

Vacation at the indoor waterpark

We went to an indoor waterpark an hour away and had a BLAST! We played arcade games, miniature golf, spent tons of time at the waterpark, played on a treehouse, and went to eat at Friendly's. Big Chauncey has fond childhood memories of getting a Sundae there when he was little, and below little Chauncey is pictured with the same Sundae.

Kate at the wave pool

We all LOVE the tubes in the wave pool.

The Birds and the Bees?


At dinner we were asking little Chauncey questions/updates on school. We asked him if there were any girls he liked. He said no, and even inserted that he doesn't like his teachers anymore either because they are girls. Daddy chimed in and told him that one day he will like girls, and will want to marry one of them someday. Chaunceys only response to all of this information was that he was going to marry Lincoln instead!

Jackson asked for a cookie after dinner, and I happily obliged. He thrn asked for the whole bag, and I told him how much it would hurt his tummy if he ate the whole bag. He reassured me that it wouldn't hurt his tummy, that only when there is a baby in his tummy will it ever hurt!

Funny Kids things


Jackson falls asleep at preschool every once in a while, and yesterday He woke up WAY too early, so I thought he might. Before leaving, I told him that He could play the Wii when he gets home if he stays awake. When Rochelle picked him up, she asked Jacks teacher if he fell asleep, and before she could answer, Jackson sounded in "I didn't fall asleep, I didn't fall asleep, I get to play the Wii!"

Kate spilled a bit of her juice last nite, and she Told me "Spill," looked and pointed to the kitchen and said "get rag" and then went to get the rag, brought it back and said "rub,rub" and was cleaning it up herself. She is only 1 and a half.

The boys favorite song goes "Corndogs, corndogs, are so good to me". Jack asked for a corndog and Kate started singing the entire line fairly clearly, "Corndogs, corndogs, are so good to me!"

I am printing all my posts and keeping them as a sort of everyday type of journal, so please disregard and skip uninteresting posts like this one might be!

Can we Keep Kate too?

This is the question Jack asks me when we talk about our "new baby sister" coming in late summer. Jack seems to think that because there is a "new baby sister" we must get rid of the old one!
I reassured him that we can keep both, if He REALLY wants us to. And His response is a huge SMILE!

West Baby Girls Pictures

Yesterday was so much fun! She is perfect and beautiful! She was so cute, small, and active. Now that we have you all convinced that it is indeed a girl, we must come up with a name or two!
This is a profile, but she is slightly faceing you can see both eyes.

Its a Girl, as I have known all along, see!

Melly's Five months pregnant pictures...

Ok, Ok, so many of you have been asking to see pictures of me pregnant. This was taken on Saturday at 5 months along. I know it is not much to see, and so I say I told you so! I have already gained about 10 pounds. At any case, here is my "belly".
I have been feeling her move a lot the past three or so weeks. Last nite she was moving big movements rather than the initial fluttery ones. Anyone can feel her move when they put thier hand on my tummy now. Yea!

Kates Haircut

These pictures are of Kate's butcher job of a haircute by yours truely. I didn't realize that when you cut wet hair, it is shorter when it dries. I tried to do an A-Line type angled cut where it stacks in the back. I don't know how to fix it, except take her to a hair cutters. I am going to try to curl the back so it stacks better.

What do you think?

Enjoying a break from cold weather...

Today was SO MUCH FUN! I think being outside is the most enjoyable thing in the World. I am so grateful we had a few good days to be outside this spring!
This is one of our favorite parks in cleveland.
This slide was almost vertical. Little Kate even went down in, and after got off and put both hands above her head and said "Whoo hoo!".

Jack, Link, Chauncey II

Cutie Pie.
We had our friend Lincoln come with us to this park today...

Family Bowling in between Conference sessions

Afterwards we went to McDonalds with a playplace.

I love how supportive they are of one another!

We took the kids out Bowling Saturday. They obviously had a great time together! Isn't this what life is all about?!
