Yay it stopped raining :) and the birdies came out!

Anyone know why I get pink and green highlights on the branches?

Anyway I am so happy because the sun is supposed to come out and be warm all through the weekend... and well tomorrow it is APRIL, and if I do say so myself it is a pretty great month!

I started using reusable diapers this week and I am so excited!

1. I was spending zillions of dollars with 2 kids in diapers

2. My heart hurt throwing away a bag of garbage a day!

3. And my friend started her own business selling all sort of different reusable diapers. Check it out:
The Uncommon Bottom

Oh and these are awesome because one diaper adjust sizes from newborn to potty training, how cool is that!

Well it has been a crazy day so I have to dump and run I will catch up with people later, happy Monday :)

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

-Dr Seuss

On Flickr there is a group called Bench Monday so I thought I would try it out... This is my first attempt at bench Monday, though I am not sure this qualifies :) It isn't a bench and my son would only let Woody stand on the books :)

P.S. Have you ever read 20+Dr Seuss books in a row? It can seriously make your mouth hurt!

*EDIT*  Here is the photostream for bench Monday so you can better understand.  Hubby said it doesn't make sense if your not a flickr fanatic (like me)

It was warm again today, hooray! Not quite warm enough for no coat though, and I always forget a coat for my little girlie since she has a blanket on her car-seat. My friend lent her some clothes why we played outside. They were huge, but my baby still looked adorable :)

My engineer husband figured out how to get this "tall tall tower" to stay up. My little man loved it ! In this picture he really wanted to put his dinosaur on top :)

Day 68 alternates more Lego fun

Here are some more pictures of the "tall tall tower"
Please excuse the messy state of my home :)

He is so excited about the tower!

And like any two year old, he really wanted to knock it down!

Still a little bit sick today, but I had to go to church to teach a class. Here are my cute shoes and skirt blowing in the wind.

Sorry I am slacking on commenting and such. Hopefully things will slow down and everyone will feel better soon so I have more time to look on the computer :)

My boys were sick yesterday and I seem to not be feeling so hot today (though not as bad as them, so I hope it goes away!)

There were some cool lines in the sky. For some reason I really like the simplicity of this, and well I love blue :)

Oh and if you look really close in the middle toward the top you can see a little speck of a bird reflecting in the sun.

This is her favorite spot to play!

Today is full of firsts:

This little girlie is crawling! Crazy that yesterday she wasn't and then today it clicked!

She also figured out how to sit up on her own from laying on her tummy... time to lower the crib!

Not so happy firsts: My little man has been so sick all day. He hasn't been able to keep anything down until about 9:00 o'clock tonight. Never experienced that as a mom :( Also the first time I purposely let him stay up past 8! Now that it is almost 10, I hope we all sleep well :)

Hubby was sick too!  Crazy day trying to take care of two sick boys and a baby girl (and trying to keep her away from them!)

I have been inspired lately by beautiful flower pictures. I think it is because I want it to be SPRING! Too bad in NY it doesn't come until late April :(
