The Summer Has Come To An End!

Well the kids started school this past Tuesday and we were all looking forward to that day.  I think I was looking forward to it the most.  Lizzy's school starts on Monday and she is very excited about that.  
Carleigh is all over the place.  She started crawling almost 2 months ago and her new favorite thing to do is climb the stairs or pull herself up on things.  She will be 8 months in about 1 week and she is just starting to wear her 3-6 months clothes which are still a little to big on her.  
Well last week before school started Libby and her family came to visit for the week.  We had a good time visiting with them.  The kids all enjoyed playing together.  
Here are a few pictures of the kids from the last few weeks and of Bri and Caty-lynne on the first day of school.  I had to force Bri to take a picture.  He is so much like his dad. Not just in the picture taking department, he will come down stairs dressed for the day with navy shorts with a navy shirt and I will say bri you need to put on a different shirt.  His response is just like his dad's was the first time we went out.  What it the same color it matches.  It must be in the genes.

Hope everyone had a great july 4th.  Brian had to work but my parents, the kids and I went out to Breakfast for biscuits, caught the last of the parade, hung out downtown at the festivals, got charicatures made and went to a pig pickin.  All in all it was a good day.  Not sure if we will make it to the fireworks  but I am not to upset about that.

Well He Did It!  Brian finished residency!  I am so proud of him and all that he has accomplished.  We went to his graduation dinner the other night and it was very nice.  Carleigh was sporting the little black dress.  Even though it was little it was still to big on her.  We are now in Greensboro trying to get settled in.  Once I get everything together I will post pictures of the house.  That might take me a year so don't hold your breath.  Brian starts work here on the 1st.  It will be so nice to have him home more, we are really looking forward to that.  He has had the last few days off and Lizzy I think ask everyday if he is going to work.  She just doesn't know how to act with him here so much.  I guess that is something she will have to get use to.  Well the kids are doing good.  I don't have any recent pictures of the other kids.  I have not pulled my camera out in a long time, will have to do that soon.

Well we found a house and signed papers for them this morning so it is official. We close on June 8th. The kids finish school on the 9th and Brian is done on the 19th. This house is new and has all the things we wanted so we are both very happy about it.

Bri turns 8 on Monday and I can't believe it. He is having his party today at a place called sports connection. They get to play basket ball, soccer and then hit the batting cage. I think they will have a blast.

Carleigh is doing great. She is such a good baby. She sleeps through the night and is happy all the time. She giggles and smiles all the time. I will take some pictures of her at the party today and post them later. I will also take pictures of the other kids as well and post them tomorrow.

Well Bri's baptism is going to be on Sat. April 11th and Carleigh is getting blessed that same weekend. Lynne and Steve are coming on the 6th and we are going to Myrtle Beach for a few days. We are all looking forward to that. Lizzy and Caty-lynne are doing great. The other day I was making dinner and I ask Brian to change Carleigh's diaper. Lizzy always wants to see it if she has gone number 2. Don't ask me why b/c I have no idea she just likes to see it. So lizzy heard this and said I will get the diapers and wipes for you. So in a few minutes I see Brian still at the comuter and I hear Lizzy talking and saying ok now we will take the diaper off. So I went into the room and she had Carleigh in a chair with her cloths off the wipes out and a new diaper ready. She was starting to take the dirty one off. I said um Lizzy what are you doing and she looked at me like duh mom I'm changing Carleigh's diaper. It was pretty funny, I was a little suprised she was even willing to do it b/c her brother and sister would not even change a wet diaper much less a dirty one. She is so funny. She goes around the house singing apple bottom jeans and Just dance all the time. She brings so much humor in our house, you never know what she is going to do or say next.

Busy Saturday

Well we had a full day yesterday, We left at 10:30am and got home at 8pm. It started with dropping off to birthday party, then to caty-lynne's soccer,then to bri's soccer, basketball games and then to dinner with basketball team to celebrate winning championship. What a day and that is when only two kids are involved in sports, can't wait till all 4 are doing it. Brian was not able to go with us so he missed out on all the fun.
Well we went to make an offer on that house I posted pics of and they had just accecpted an offer the day before so we are going back to look some more on friday.

House Shopping

So we went and looked at houses this weekend in Greensboro and I think we narrowed it down to this one. We are talking to our agent about making an offer soon. I thought I would post a few pictures so you could see what we are looking at. I love love love the kitchen in this house and it is plenty big for us. It is a new house and in a very nice neighborhood with good schools. It has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Hopefully everything will work out and we will be able to get it.

Sweet Carleigh

Here are a few pictures I forgot to put on the post this morning. The first one is trying to get a picture of her smiling and could never take it at the right time, always caught the end of the smile. The others are her wearing her cute fur boots. She look so cute in them with her little legs, just had to get a picture of them.

Just a Few Pictures

Just thought I would share a few picutres of the girls. I never seem to have any pictures of Bri, he is not one to like to have his picture taken. The girls on the other hand if they see a camera they want you to take a picture of them. Not much going on around here. Caty-lynne had a birthday, she is now 6 yrs old. I had a birthday the big 31! That is about it. We are going to Greensboro this weekend to look at houses so that should be fun. Carleigh is doing great. She is smiling alot. It is no longer just while she is sleeping but when you hold her and talk to her she will smile and giggle, very cute.

Well we actually got snow here the other day and the kids were thrilled. They went in and out all day long. Since we never get snow they have no cloths to wear in the snow so they would come in to change into dry cloths after being out for a short time. Lets just say I am glad it is just about gone today and will be gone after tomorrow since it is supposed to be 6o degrees.

Well the kids kept asking me to make a snowman with them and I told them I was not very good since I had probably only made a few in my life and that was when I was a kid. So I went out to help and we made a little one and they were happy with that. Well today Brian was home and he went out with them and made one before the snow all melted. I think it is easy to see who grew up with snow and who didn't. I also threw in a few pictures I have taken of Carleigh this week.

Mountain Man

Here are some pictures of 1998

Mount Temple, Alberta

I'd die if I tried this today.
