Ooops! It has been forever!!!

Ooops!! It has been forever since I posted! I changed the blog to a more summer like background bc after a long and cold winter we are all ready for spring/summer!!!

A lot has happened since the beginning of Jan so I will sum it up:

Hailey turned 6 on Feb 1st - she celebrated with family and some friends at a Paint Your Own Pottery place. Joshua turned 4 on March 23rd and he too celebrated with family and friends at Port Discovery in Baltimore (a childrens' museum). They both had fabulous birthdays!!

Scott and I went to The Breakers in Palm Beach, FL the end of Feb for 5 days and had a great time. We are headed to the Four Seasons in Maui on April 25th ~ this is where we honeymooned almost 9 years ago!!

Kyle is becoming such a little boy - no more baby!! He loves to chase after his siblings and even 'hit' them (he holds his own very well) - he actually enjoys being rough and wrestling! He is starting to talk more and LOVES to dance and make us laugh. He can get into things but overall is a really good little guy :)

Hailey started lacrosse and is loving it (mouthguard, facemask and all) and Joshua started soccer clinic and loves it as well. Kyle just loves chasing and throwing a ball.

The kids are starting a countdown until our family vacation in June - we are heading to St Thomas, USVI for 3 days and then onto St John with my family for 7 more days. We are all very excited for this trip!!

Kari and Syd are coming to visit for a few days and we are all so excited for their visit - Syd is getting so big and is now giggling all the time!

I promise to try and keep this more up to date .... Happy Easter to all!

HAPPY 2009!!!!

I can't believe how fast the month of December went by!! The kids continued to enjoy the 'adventures' their elves got into esp when the elves hung our underwear all over our Christmas tree one night! The elves took a trip to NJ the weekend before Chirstmas and continued their fun up there - they toilet papered Gramma and Grampa's tree and 3 ft santa!!!

Santa was VERY good to the kids this year and they pretty much got what they wanted. They really enjoyed Christmas this year ~ even Kyle was into opening his gifts.

Kari had her baby (finally) on Christmas Eve ~ Sydney Elizabeth Cooke was 7lbs, 13oz and 20in long. She is absolutely beautiful and we were very fortunate to spend time with her over the holiday.

Meghan had her baby girl on Sat. 12.27 ~ Maggie Elizabeth Still was 7lbs, 1 oz and 19.5 in long. She too is a beautiful little baby girl and we have spent some time with her.

We wish everyone a very healthy and happy 2009!
