It's been a long day and it's only 4:00 pm. This morning we woke up early, Nancy came and got the kids. Drew and I headed off to his office to do a little decorating and then I went to Jury duty orientation. Yes, I have been selected to do Jury duty. The judge was kind enough to only make me do 4 days which I got to pick. I guess she pitied my children and my friends that would be taking them. I left the court feeling lucky and just plain happy that I was guaranteed only 4 days away from my boys. Pray that the cases that are going April 12-15 get settled or dismissed:).

Moving on to Gray...
This kid is pretty cute and pretty dang clumsy. He trips over everything. His walking skills are similar to a 12 month old but has the confidence of a 4 year old. The last week or so he's added some major scars to his face. The first, I'm warning you this picture is pretty gross but as you can see he's healed nicely.

This is what happens when you rock a kitchen table chair back and forth and fall forward with it.
Instead of putting his hands out to catch himself, he just smacked his face on the floor. There was blood everywhere and I thought he had broken his nose. But after a nice ER visit we found out he did not and only had a deep gash under his nose. It's amazing what you can find by just cleaning off the blood:) They derma glued it shut and he's left with only a little scar.
The bruise above his eye is from tripping and going head first into the coffee table. This is an example of many bruises on his face.
And most recently this beauty! We were outside doing yard work and he tripped and landed on a rock! Seconds after falling he was up and running around, happy as can be. I've said this before but we are lucky Gray is such an easy going, happy, tough kid.

I asked Mac to go check on G and this is what I found...

They thought they were pretty funny!

Here's some pictures from a birthday party we went to for one of Mac's friends. They loved it.

St. Patrick's Day!!

Growing up, every year on St. Patrick's Day my mom would wake up before us and place a trail of little Leprechaun feet all over the house that led to the "Pot of Gold." It was usually filled with our favorite candies or green and gold treats. Later on, my Dad took over and it became a scavenger hunt with quite difficult poems that led us to the loot. In fact as of last year my parents were still doing this for my younger brothers that were in high school and college. I'm pretty sure my Dad enjoys this more than the little boys (yes I will forever call my younger brothers the little boys even though they are almost 18 and 20):)

I love traditions, so I was excited that Mac was old enough to enjoy this one. Gray had no idea what was happening, he just followed Mac around the house and loved what was at the end of the foot prints.

Mac had to touch every foot print

They got gold fish, candy, chalk, shovels and little dump trucks to play outside with!

Today is Grandma Rita's Birthday!
Drew couldn't ask for a better mom. I couldn't ask for a more patient mother in law. Mac and Gray couldn't ask for a more loving grandma! We love you and wish we were there to celebrate your big day!!!

It's the best time of the year

Top 5 reasons we love 50-60 degree Spring weather...

#5. Feeding/chasing Ducks

# 4. Long Park days with dad and the rest of Lexington:)
#3. Hours of playing in the dirt..

#2 Shoes and pants are optional...

1# Great Naps! After being outside everyday since Friday, the boys have never slept better.

No bugs, tulips, green grass, the smell of rain, warmer and longer days are just a few more reasons to love Spring! It's truly the best time of the year!
