preschool field trip... the Post Office

Kate's preschool went on a field trip to the post office. It was actually really interesting for the parents but probably pretty boring for the kids. They did however, really love getting in the mail truck. (thanks for the pictures Melanie)

Dustin's Birthday

Yesterday was Dustin's Birthday. We celebrated it by having cake and ice cream and watching the Colts game. It was a great day!
Elle found someones leftover cake, and decided to act quickly! I couldn't resist taking a picture of a topless girl in a tutu eating cake.
Man she's CUTE!!!!

Parker got hit in the head by a door knob, and then a follow up hit later in the day by a plastic golf club. This picture really doesn't do his goose egg justice at was the biggest goose egg I have ever seen. OUCH!!!!

Family Home Evening

Tonight we wanted to go bowling for family night. So we went to the bowling alley, there was a 1 hour wait, so we decided to get some dinner and then come back. We came back about an hour later, and the guy said it would be another hour. Not going to happen, it's a school night. So we decided to let the kids play the arcade games instead. They loved it! Loved it much more than bowling! (and the guy at the bowling alley gave us coupons for free bowling for next time)

The newest member of our family!

Dustin's safe came today, he is so excited to have it.
He says that it is unfortunate that the newest member of our family is empty inside...he is currently excepting donations to cure this problem.

Manicure day at the Smith's

Lauren helped paint Kates nails.
Elle got her nails painted for the first time. It is a super light pink, and I just realized you can't really see it in this picture. Oh well, it's going to have to do. The point is she LOVED it...smiled the whole time.


Poor Kate got her finger stuck in the kitchen Aid attachment!
I just couldn't resist taking a picture.

you've been caught!

What must Elle be thinking? Why do 1 yr. olds think it is ok to climb up on the table? She does this all of the time, and has only fallen off a couple of times. You can totally tell by the picture that she knows she is in trouble.

Random pictures taken with our new camera

This is a long post, sorry, but I just couldn't pick which pictures to leave out, so I posted them all.
We made brownies for family night. Parker was sure he could crack the eggs. Crack them he did...and the whole egg ended up outside of the bowl, and the shell in the bowl. oops!
Ella, Lauren, and Kate giggling from a sugar high on the way home from Ivanhoes.

The kids love to play freeze dance. Parker has some killer moves.

Such a girl...she loves her lip gloss.

Christmas morning was exhausting to this little girl.

there's nothing like a gun magazine (at least that's what they tell me)

Christmas morning

The whole family love to make sugar cookies.
It is a Christmas tradition.

Kate is always using her imagination, this time she was playing with some things on moms counter as we were getting ready for church. She needed just a little boost and she thought what better then....

Lauren loves to be in any picture!
