We had a couple highlights to our day today. The first cool thing we did was a Post Office Tour with the Mom's Club. Yesterday Logan and Emma colored a post card for Matt so they would have some mail for today. We had a blast with our friends. After lunch and nap time we got ready to go pick up Grandpa Kevin from the airport. We are very excited to spend some time with Grandpa!!

The pretty princess. This picture was taken on Saturday, our last day on the incubation period.(we were climbing the walls:)) Emma wanted to do her make-up so I said what the heck. And then she put on the dress that has only come off at night (That was 3 days ago) . She even asked if I could wash it AGAIN tonight so she can wear it to school. This year we are definitely getting use out of her Easter Dress.

The kids were climbing off the walls this morning. I left the hide a bed out thinking that we could make it a movie day but Logan could not handle the excitement and either wanted to climb the pillows to get to the top of the couch or agitate his sister. It was not long before the hide a bed was put away.
One of my kids favorite snacks is frozen waffles. This started when Emma was a babe and teething and I carried it onto Logan has he began teething. It has now stuck and tends to be the morning snack.

After I picked up the kids we headed to Friendly's with some good friends. Friendly's is a burger and ice cream family fun restaurant. Emma really enjoyed hanging out with her friends and Logan enjoy crackers!! Seriously!! The kids got some 3D glasses and I thought what a more perfect picture:)

Yesterday I took Emma and Logan to the commissary with me. Our first stop was the produce area. Emma had already picked out her special Easter candy filled fan and was telling everybody about it. At one point I asked Emma to help me get Oranges, try as she did she could not reach them. There was another man nearby who was getting oranges that she stuck up a conversation with. The man was saying how Oranges will make you big and strong and she looked and him and said " Like Jesus?" and then turned to me. I wanted to cry and said yes "Yes Emma, just like Jesus big and strong".
I wanted to share this special moment with you all. Daily God does some special things in my life. Some days he sends me trials to over come and some days he sends me sweet little reminders of his constant love for us. Without God in my life right now I know I would be dipper in this pit. With God I am constantly being pulled up and shown the light. Praise God with me!!

The Army 10 miler is in October and on April 1st I will be signing up for it. The next race will be a 10K(6.2 miles) on Mat 2nd and I think I will start researching a marathon I can run right after Matt gets back from Afghanistan.

This afternoon was one of those ahhhh, afternoon's. Emma and I took 2 hour naps and Logan took a 4 hours nap!!! It was nice to lay on the couch and watch TV while I cat napped.
A lot of the snow has melted here. We still have about 6 inches or so but I think it is on it's way out the door this season. After the grill was buried for so long it is ready to be used. Tonight we enjoyed so marinated Pork chops. We love us so bbq here!!
Tonight's movie was Problem Child and I think we will watch Problem Child 2 next. And then Look who's talking next week. I am so loving the Netflix watch instantly and stream through the XBOX!! So cool:)

Today was a not so happy funny day. Both kids are sick AGAIN!! Both kids have ear infections and Logan has pink eye. I was dreading that one and did not even think about ear infections when I made the appointments. But I am happy they are both on antibiotics now, hopefully they will finally get rid of whatever bug is lingering.

Tonight Emma helped me make Meatballs and Spaghetti. It was a recipe that was totally yummy with a very creamy cheesy sauce to put over the pasta. I totally dug it. Logan enjoyed it but enjoyed the Texas Toast more. Emma tried it and after eating her Texas Toast and 12 might of the meatball settled for plain spaghetti noodles.
I will try to get a good video of the kids tomorrow.

We had a busy busy day today. We were up and out of the house early so I could get the kids to care and help Katie out a bit before I headed to a FRG Meeting. So by the time the kids and I got home we were all tired and a tad bit cranky.
For whatever reason I decided to try and fix the treadmill. The belt is loose or too tight or whatever, I don't know other then it is slipping and I cannot run on it:( This did happen right after we bought it and I tried to fix it to only finally have my hubby fix it.
Matt's step dad is coming to visit soon. I am not sure if he realized how much he had to do around here. He is coming in to spend a couple days with the kids and I am going to take advantage of his expertise and have a fix- it list ready for when the kids are sleeping. . Let's see what's all on it---- The toilet runs, the kitchen sink leaks, the jacuzzi jets need to be fixed, and NOW the treadmill is broke. Thank God Grandpa is coming to town!!

Today has been another really awesome day. We woke up a little later than normal at Katie's house and enjoyed a few hours before the baby-sitter came back to watch the kids. Katie and I headed out for an incredible breakfast and a little shopping.
I was wiped by the time we got back to the house around 1 PM and quickly packed the kids up to get home and down for naps. Emma took a 4 hour nap. And Logan cuddled with me on the couch until he fell asleep. It was a very nice afternoon.
Emma and I rounded off the nice day with a movie and cuddling. The movie tonight was Madeline and she loved it:)

Friday was a super busy day. Logan was asleep when Emma came home from school so we decided to paint each other's toe nails. Too flippin fun.
We headed to my good friends house so she could watch the kids for a couple hours. I really did not have anything in particular to get done but it was nice to do the few hours of running around without the kids. As I was headed back I was trying to think of something else I could do to pass time and thought about ice skating but it had just closed, bummer!! I would have totally dug that.
Friday night was a much needed girls night and unfortunately I do not have any pics to show all the fun we had. One of my favorite restaurants (here in the North Country) is the Texas Road house for a couple margaritas and a juicy red steak so that is where we started the night. Then headed onto a totally relaxing a fun time at a martini bar. We ended the night at another bar shacking our groove thing. It was a wild and fun night. Maybe this time next year we can complete the entire night with our guys at our side:)

We are starting to finally feel a little better around here. Logan had a rough morning but after sleeping most of the day he had a good evening. Let's just hope he sleeps through the night!! I don't think I heard Emma couch a whole lot.
I am gearing up for the YMCA Shamrock 5 Mile Run and thought I would test myself today. At the Y I made it 1/2 mile including my warm up in 6 minutes before I was told Logan just got sick. So after I got him home and down for a nap I ran another 4 1/2 miles in 44 minutes including my cool down. I am running around a 9 minute mile, I am sooo ready to get out there and do this. The next big run will be in October for the Army 10 miler. (And to see cousin Lisa)
There is nothing new to report. The above video is from the other day during snack time. Emma loves to cook so she really enjoyed spreading the peanut butter on the crackers. She is too funny. After she got all done she licked the peanut butter off the crackers and then proudly said "I am done".

After I picked the kids up we were invited to join some friends for Pizza and Bingo at the Winner's Circle on Post. They offer a pretty nice kid friendly buffet full of spaghetti (Logan's favorite), pizza, and chicken and fries. Then we played a few games of Bingo. Emma enjoyed just being near her friends. She really did not understand the game at all but I could tell she really enjoyed and needed to be around the young kids. Logan really was frustrated, he could not understand why I would not put him down. After her ate a few full plates I tried to let him down but he wanted to go back to the kitchen for more food. The fight ended with a trip back to the high-chair.

Today has been a blahh day. I have not felt up to par, Logan is incredibly clingy and cranky, and Emma has a nasty cough and a funny voice.
The video is from Saturday at a birthday party for one of Emma's friends. Thank God another classmates mother was there to help me a little and watched Emma in the Party room while I took Logan to the playroom. I definitely learned my lesson and will always try my hardest to get a baby-sitter for Logan during these fun times for Emma.
