Ethan and ladybug, Ellie shopping

Ethan was so excited to find this ladybug yesterday. Today we all went Petco to buy Sasha some new chew toys. Ellie and Ethan both were so excited to see that they had "shopper in training " carts. So they pushed a tiny cart around the store and found lots of fun goodies for Sasha. Ellie especially loved it ... when she wasn't busy commenting on stranger's painted finger nails and telling them about her new flip flops.

Josh and Dana visit from DC

Fun in the mud!
Our friends, Josh and Dana came out for a visit from DC. They have two little boys, Jack and baby Henry. Both Ethan and Ellie had so much fun with Jack.

The kids had so much fun having new friends to play with. Mr Josh was a great playmate for all .. especially at 5am when he was up with the baby and our kids decided to get up too..."Play time"!

Ethan, took it upon himself to be sort of big brother to Jack. They played so great and Ethan even enjoyed pretending to be Jack part of the time. Cheeeeese!

Unfortunately it was a blizzard the first two days of their visit. But the kids got to go out and play in some snow...

Easter Sunday 2009

Easter Sunday in Colorado Springs. Ethan , Chillin' in the Coffee shop- looking rather James Dean-ish... Except he has sweater vest on and no cigarette. I don't think Dean ever wore a sweater vest.
Ellie, of course enjoying her yummy Pancakes.. -who wouldn't?
Easter Sunday, we are in the lobby at church.. and yes, that is a fire burning in the fire place because it is a frosty 31 degrees outside. It snowed from 7am until well after noon. Thanks to Kim she brought her camera and took pics of us... I thought it about time that she be "blog -worthy"

Fun Picnic at the Park

With winter drawing to a close (hopefully), we are enjoying some great spring weather. Perfect for days outside. Today, we went tothis great park. That is not but maybe 20 minutes from the house. We had a great time there today with Kim , James and baby Troy Buchanan.. picnicking and playing in some gorgeous Colorado Springs weather.

This is Kim attempting a great shot from above... It didn't really work though... Try getting getting a 2 , 3 and 4 year old to all look up (while spinning) in the sun at the same time.... Not gonna happen.

Sasha's first trip to the Groomer...

So here is our new dog.... (She looks very Poodle-ish now) I think I miss her her fluffs... Official Before:
And After:
When the groomer brought Sasha out both Ellie and Ethan did not believe that this was our dog. The whole drive home Ellie kept telling me.."Mama, go back. We got the wrong dog. That's not Sasha"... I'm not sure she even beleives me now 2 hours later... But after Sasha stole one of Ellie's PBJ squares - I think Ethan is convinced that it is indeed Sasha....
