Playing in the Snow.

We finally got some “playable” snow today.  Not ice, but snow.  The kids are having a blast…

Hello Kitty Party.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — kennington412 @ 12:43 pm

It’s not every day that my kids are getting along.  In fact, it’s so rare that when they do, I think they’re up to something.  Well, much to my surprise today (while we’re all home from school for a snow day), everyone is getting along.  Getting along so well that Ian and Eve decided to surprise Ivy with a Hello Kitty party.  Ivy is loving the attention and I’m loving having a minute to get some work done this week.  I wish all snow days worked out like this…

Ian’s Big Milestone

Well, I’ve been waiting for this day a long time.  The day my son finally takes initiative to get organized.  I won’t include a picture of the rest of his room, cause he’s taking baby steps folks.  Give him a chance….

This Face.

The perfect remedy for those not so chipper days.  God knew just what I needed when He created her…

Spoiled Rotten.

No, not my kids this time, but me!  I can’t explain how proud I am of my little man.  At the beginning of this year, my kids knew nothing about cooking (and I didn’t really either), but through the course of the year we’ve all learned lots of valuable techniques to use in the kitchen.  Well, Ian OFFERED to make breakfast for us all today.  I didn’t have to ask or anything.  He just offered.  Actually told me to go and relax.  He made a wonderful breakfast and it tasted even better knowing I didn’t have to lift a finger 🙂

Sleepover Blues.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — kennington412 @ 4:58 pm

Ian has been waiting for tonight for a long time.  His best friend was supposed to be coming over tonight for a sleepover.  Well, sometimes plans fall through and we found out last night that he wouldn’t be able to stay tonight.  Ian was pretty upset.  Although I know nothing I can do would be the same, I tried to think of something that might be equally as cool or at least a close second.  Got Ivy all “occupied” in mommy’s room watching tv…

IMG_0317lrAnd got all set up for a video game night with mommy.  I would say that judging by his face, I kinda made up for it 😉

Girls Night Out.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — kennington412 @ 8:19 pm

Ivy and I had the night to ourselves tonight.  Just she and I.


I thought about what to do with Ivy, but she’s so tricky to figure out.  I could have taken her to Chuck E. Cheese or Celebration Station, but I wanted to do something a little more grown up with her since it was something special for just she and I.  We spent the night shopping and finished it off with a little Japanese.

Waiting took forever!  It is definitely the place to be on Sundays…

IMG_0424lrIt was sooo YUMMY!!  I ate entirely too much, but it was so much fun watching Ivy experience everything 🙂  Love that girl to a million pieces!

Discovering with the babies.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — kennington412 @ 7:21 pm

We had so much fun today at Discovery Place in Charlotte.  There really is too much to do.  We got to see so many cool things.  All of the kids had a blast!


We played with the water table…


Built some super cool and colorful houses…

IMG_0385Checked out our hands and arms under a microscope.  Side note…If you want to feel old, just look at your hands under a microscope…


Saw a really cool snake and even got to pet it…


Hoisted each other up in the pulley chairs…


IMG_0397Lied down on a bed of nails.  Eve said it felt good and wanted that for her own bed and Ian whined and said it hurt.  Guess we know who the little toughie is…



My favorite was watching the dust dance to different music.  Very cool!


Built a little bit more…


Watched the scarf travel through the maze tube…


All in all, it was a very fun and eventful day.  This momma’s whooped.  I hope I can say the same for the kids come bedtime 🙂
