94|365 it's not permanent marker joy

It was time to walk out the door and Kyle came downstairs like this. Luckily it was a dry-erase marker and came off pretty easily. And now I have another picture to show his future girlfriends :)

We had a showing today, and so to get out of the house for a while we all went to McDonalds. Kyle saw this sign and he said," This sign says NO NAKED PEOPLE ALLOWED!" yup. that's right.

85|365 orange belt joy

I am so proud! MY son got his orange belt in Taekwondo. AND he was one of 3 kids out of about 15 who got a special recognition award! He is really enjoying "karate". (Cody corrected me today about calling it karate, but it says karate on the sign!)

82|365 reading in bed joy

I went to check on the boys in bed and found this scene. I went to get my camera and took this picture without them knowing. Then, I promptly extinguished the fire hazard they had created and replaced the lamp with a flashlight.

81|365 gourmet-looking dinner joy

This dinner was so yummy and impressive looking with the lemon rinds and rosemary sprigs. I also made corn pudding to go with it. I don't know what got into me.

79|365 crawling joy

Annabelle is crawling. It's not organized, but she can get across a room by rolling, scooting, army crawling, real crawling, or back scooting. She is getting lots of practice by crawling to where Aggie is laying, only to have Aggie get up and move across the room as soon as Annabelle gets close. So Annabelle crawls to Aggie in her new location and the crazy cycle repeats.

71|365 family walk joy

We decided to enjoy the nice weather and go for a walk after dinner tonight. I always like the idea of going on a walk after dinner with Cody but that just isn't likely to happen right now. So we all went and it was nice.

Here's Barrett on our walk.

70|365 visiting the new baby joy

Our good friends had their third daughter the other day. Unfortunately it was when we were all sick so we couldn't visit them until now. Little Molly is such a doll! I can't wait to take her newborn photos later this week.

I got a picture of big sis with Molly. Kyle wasn't in the mood for pictures and Annabelle kept pulling Emma's hair and Barrett was at school. Such is life.

Barrett got a stripe on his belt today. The stripe means that he knows the moves that they have been teaching. He felt very proud and so do I.
