Catching Up...

Hey yall!! I have been so stressed out lately as my computer was not letting me download pics and my external drive with all of our pictures on it is not working (trying to not to stress out that there is a chance I lost ALL of my pictures). So on top of a very busy week, I could not blog =). Somehow tonight I got my newest pictures to load so we are back to normal....

This weekend was my step-brother Jace's eleventh birthday party. It was at Fast Lanes, Claire and Owen's most favorite place "ever". They had bowling (go karts too, but we took off before that as Owen would have had an absolute meltdown once he realized he was too little to ride) and of course pizza and cake! Happy Birthday Jace!! Claire and Owen think you are the coolest uncle ever!!

Before we left - did not even realize that I caught a L'Oreal ad in the background on the TV!!! =)
Getting our shoes on...
Waiting our turn...Me and Claire bearClaire showing off her ruffle socks with bowling shoes =) O-man...I love his big boy shorts...Eating pizzaJace blowing out the candlesThe rare family picture!!The car on the way home...LOL
If you look real close in the pictures of Claire, you can see the botched bangs she gave herself =) - harder to hide them now at this stage of growth...=)
Tara was so kind to post a picture of the two of us when we were little that is absolutely hilarious, not my finest hair moment!! You can go here to check it out...I didn't even realize how much Claire looked like me when I was little!!
This week is crazy busy but stay tuned for more posts with all kinds of Easter fun!! Now I am off to eat my weight in Peeps and put together "Rabbit Food" snacks for Claire and O's classes tomorrow....

Oh man, I didn't even notice the bangs until you said something. But, wow, she DID a number on them, didn't she?! YIKES!

Cute pitures as always!!! What exactly goes in rabbit food??

How cute are they bowling?! There is nothing cuter than those little feet in bowling shoes! The best part was hearing Owen yell "I did it!" everytime he rolled the ball, even if it was in the next people's lane! Minor details!

Amanda said...

I have always told Chris that I bet Claire looks like you did at her age. I was glad to see the picture of you to reaffirm what I always thought.
