Mr. Fix-it

I always give Caleb a hard time about his handyman skills (or lack there of), but he did a pretty awesome job re-caulking the shower today! I gave him a list of things that need to be fixed up before we have renters in the condo and he did a really good job!

* I always tell people if I ask Caleb to fix the drain he'll sit in there and write a song instead :). Ahhh, creative types.. I'll never understand them :)

House update...

We stopped by the house today and they've made a lot of progress! The hardwood (cocoa!) is partially laid and all of the painting is done. We move in four weeks!

Gallie was home sick yesterday with what we think was a reaction to her vaccinations she got Thursday - the poor girl had three shots and they had to bring in an extra nurse to help me hold her down - it wasn't a pretty sight! She cried all afternoon about it :( We don't watch TV anymore except for Friday nights, but I thought she needed something to take her mind off it so we watched a great deal of Berenstain Bears :).

She was better today but we still took it easy (she was even in her pj's in these pictures!). It was such a nice day that we took a walk around the new neighborhood.

Caleb attended the Addy's award ceremony last night and won for best PSA (public service announcement) for his piece about saving farms that he did for Huxley School of the Environment. It was in Seattle and they did a bit of celebrating afterwards... I think he came home around 2:00 am :). Congrats Caleb!

It's on his work's website if anyone wants to watch it: (just search "huxley")

Happy Easter!!!

We spent Saturday evening at Libby's house playing outside and coloring eggs!  The girls each colored about 6 eggs, which was perfect for them - they kept redipping them and redipping them and ended up with some pretty cool looking eggs!

We actually stayed the night so the girls could wake up a do their egg hunt together.  We did a really simple egg hunt and it was so fun!  We've really been trying hard to simplify and asking (sometimes begging and threatening!) friends and family to not give so many treats and presents to Callie.  I'm so glad we have been doing this because it was wonderful to see the greatfulness from her - it made me really happy :)

It's not a holiday without matching dresses!

Luca's 1st Easter!  He's so handsome :)

The weather was soooo nice this weekend!!!

Two pretty cool dudes.

Oh yeah... the girls got one more surprise this morning... bunnies!!!  Scarlet (Gallie's) and Josie (Lily's)!

Caleb and I have been talking about getting Gallie a pet when we move.  It's no secret I'm not really a pet/animal person, but Gallie asks for a pet daily and Caleb loves animals as well.  We decided on a rabbit because it would be easy for her to feed it by herself and take it out on the grass to play with it each day.  Caleb will do the hard stuff like changing the hay and cleaning the cage :)

Libby's neighbors have rabbits and chickens and the kids know a lot about animals so she was fully aware of what kind of resonsibility it would be, which was very helpful.  We decided Easter would be as good a time than any to get them :)  Libby is keeping Scarlet for us until we move.

The girls love them so much!!!

Happy Easter!!!

Little Houses

Lily came over to visit Gallie today for an Easter craft (I saw the idea on Pinterest - not sure of original source) - they made little houses for marshmallow bunnies and peeps!  They didn't turn out exactly like the pictures, but just as cute nonetheless :)  And they had a lot of fun making them!

*The Easter bunny may or may not be leaving a couple of his babies for two little girls!!!*

Happy Birthday Meast!!!

For Molly's b-day we went to the casino ( haha!). We each only brought $20... I came home with what I came with but Meast won a $140 jackpot!!! Happy birthday to you!

Zoo day!

Caleb and I both skipped out on work today, and Gallie is on spring break, so we spent the day at the zoo! The forecast was rainy but it ended up being a great day - We had a lot of fun!

And P.S. I'm back from a near month long break from blogging!
