New beds for the three youngest boys

Sorry for the blurry picture. We had beds made for the boys and this is how we got them over the rail, into the loft. They were very heavy, it took four guys to get them up there.

This is Grant's bed on the left side of the room....
these are the twins' beds on the right side of the room. They each have six large drawers under their bed. And I now have blankets for them... although they aren't matching yet. I am planning to buy navy comforters or maybe just navy throw blankets for them. I want it to be easy for them to keep them neat.

Ice Skating

I went skating with the school kids. It was fun after my feet got used to trying to balance this old body of mine. WOW!! They hurt for the first 30 minutes then it was about time to go! :) But we had lots of fun!

A few miscellaneous pictures.....

Somehow the big lizards and snow just don't seem to go in the same picture.... but these sure are.

And then, because I had to fix what I messed up......

Tyler with a very shaved head. :) They look like cancer patients.
Aurora doesn't like to sit on the cold ground so she sits on top of the snowmachines! So spoiled!

The Next Spring Picture

It's supposed to be up to 50 degrees tomorrow and Sunday. That means even more of the white stuff will melt!!

The Full Set

We have been collecting the State Coins for the last 9 or 10 years. We just kept checking them as we got them and got the last one yesterday. It was the Arizona State Quarter. As you can see, the board we collected them on is from 10 years ago and has had it's share of wear and tear. I'm actually a little sad that it's over. It's been fun!

Here Kitty, Kitty!

I can't believe my husband let the kids get a kitten!! Here is our new little family member. She's just a bundle of fur right now. Her name is Skittles.

We're beginning to see some meltage!! :)

April 11th (I forgot to take the picture yesterday) You can see the dirt at the end of the driveway - that isn't ALL meltage, because the snow plow came a few days ago and plowed all the packed snow from the road, but it IS starting to melt. Slowly but surely!

Is it Spring yet?

I didn't get to tell Andrew to leave the grill with the snow on it until I was done with it, so the picture looks different and that makes it hard to compare.... but just let me tell ya'.... the snow isn't melting yet. We actually had about -12 degrees here yesterday morning. That is unusual for this time of year. But, so far, in the 14 years we've lived here, the snow has always been melted off by May 1st. Now, we have had it snow after May 1st a couple of times, but it melts quickly. The picture above was taken today. See my posts below to compare last Friday and the Friday before.
