3, 4, 5, 6....

Yep, that's right....For one whole week, I had a 3, 4, 5, and 6 year old. Sounds insane, huh?!? Baylor turned 3 last week, and Hudson turned 7 on Saturday. So, I now have a 3, 4, 5, and 7 year old....still a bit crazy, I know. We've stuffed our faces with birthday cake for an entire week!! Now it's on to Rick's b-day (3/31), Corbin's b-day (4/22) and my b-day (4/23). ****Mental note, if you're going to continue eating this much birthday cake, you will have to invest in some really "sexy" elastic pants.
For spring break we were able to go to Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. Let me just tell you how beautiful those caverns were. I'd been before, as a child, but had no remembrance of their beauty. How someone could walk thru the caves and not believe in God is beyond me! After enjoying the caves, we drove to Albuquerque to visit my sister Genevieve and her family. She has 3 little boys, and is pregnant with her 4th child. We had SOO much fun, but as always, it's good to be back at home in my own bed.
Speaking of my own's hollaring my name from afar.

So, you may recall me being a bit cross with the Groundhog this year....but after today's beautiful snowfall "I'm sorry Mr. Groundhog."
Being from North Texas, you just don't see a whole bunch of the white stuff. And, usually if it "snows" it means there are a few flurries that won't even wet the street. Well, today, was the most gorgeous snowfall. (I can call it gorgeous b/c in Texas the snow doesn't loom for a whole season--it'll be gone tomorrow!!) We got around 2-3" which was perfect for the kids to play in and build a little snowman.
Baylor had never really seen snow until this week....she's seen some of the flurry action, but that's about it. She didn't understand the concept of gloves, AND she especially didn't understand the concept of keeping gloves on her hands. Please note in the pictures her exceptional outfit. She had on a dress, sweat pants, pink cowgirl boots, ski goggles, a pair of tights around her neck (fancy scarf, huh?) a red hat that was way too small, and Corbin's coat from last year.
F.Y.I. Now that we've gotten our beautiful snow, I'm mad at the groundhog again. I'm ready for spring!!
