Addition to the Family!!


Nooooo I'm not pregnant, but we do have another baby in the family!

This is Tiger Gordon Lane. His name has meaning for the kids (Papa Ron can you figure it out?) They both wanted a name that would remind them of their Grandma.
He is sweet and cute and cuddley and the kids love him. We just got him last night, I am having lack of sleep issues from being outside so much last night---ARGH once for 40 minutes at 3:00 but he hadn't pee'd since we got home so I knew I needed to wait him out! I think its Nates turn to get up tonight! :)
This week has been all about getting ready for school. The kids got new haircuts,I finished school shopping, I'm washing it all and getting it put away. I can't believe they start back to school in the fall and that I'm going to be kid free all day! I have tears just typing it, I don't want my kids to be this grown up already :( gotta run now, I'm all teary :(

Finally!!! Its out!!

Noahs tooth has been hanging by a thread for 2 weeks! He was so nervous to pull it out. He thought it would hurt (although his other three teeth didn't) and he thought he was going to look sooo silly having his 2 front teeth gone! Little did he know how silly he looked having that tooth barely hang in there, it started to point sideways.

I saw him playing with it today and noticed how loose it really was and told him it was coming out today, I was able to see the new tooth coming in. So I wiggled it for awhile, Ciaara wiggled it for awhile and Noah finally decided to try and he got it out!! He was sooooo proud of himself!
We danced around and I went and brought him for ice cream (please excuse the ice cream on his face lol)

I think he looks sooo cute and sooooo grown up!

Layouts!!! I'd love to say I've been a scrapping fool, but I haven't. I haven't been scrapping much, just haven't had the mojo or the time really. This layout of Noah I did on Sunday but the other two are a couple weeks old.

Nates dad is coming here this weekend, we can't wait to see him! We are taking him with us to the Twins game on Saturday. We get to go on the field before the game to view batting practice. The kids hope we can meet some players and get autographs! It should be a good time.
Who knows if I'll update again this just in case.....Have a great weekend!

America Idol Concert

Wow, what a fun time we had at the American Idol concert! They were all great and put on a GREAT show!! The kids had a blast, they were so excited when it started, they jumped right up and starting singing and dancing! Noah sang along to most of the songs and Ciaara was up dancing for alot of the concert. It was 3 hours long and I can't believe how well the kids behaved. It was a blast!

The bad news: Some of my pictures were gone off my memory camera when I got home. I try a recovery program and ended up getting some of them back but not them all :( Here are some them....................

If you were/are a fan of the show and you have a chance to see the concert, DO IT!! :D
Thanks for stopping by!

This week is flying right by! It has been soooo hot, in the 90's all week. Argh! I try and not complain abou the warm weather because it is sooo much better then winter but its almost getting unbearable. The kids have spring fever and want to get outside but its just not good for them when its this hot!

Nate and one of his friends got our memorial trees planted, they look great! We explained to the kids why we planted memorial trees and they both were happy with that and said now Grandma can always be close. Ciaara helped Daddy plant the trees, Noah wouldn't even come outside to get a picture, he said it was to hot out!

Saturday we have tickets to go to the American Idol concert in the cities. This year was not one of my favorite years of Idol, but I think it would be a great time to take the kids to their first concert.
I did a layout earlier in the week that I will try and get posted soon, Have a great Wednesday!
