What a fabulous day!

We had an awesome day! Ashley had a field trip to go on for school. It was a discovering math/science type field trip. Ashley said it was more like career day but she had fun. She had to be at her school at 6:30 so Aaron dropped her off. We got the babies all dressed up in their Easter outfits so that we could go see the Easter bunny. Around 10 we headed to the park for the children's Easter social. It was such a beautiful day I wanted to stay outside all day. The bunny came hopping down the bunny trail around 10:30. We stood in line and anxiously awaited our turn with the bunny. They did so well and they were so cute. The bunny's eyes are a bit scary looking but aside from that he is pretty cute.
After the bunny visit we headed to my sister's to help her paint. I love painting so of course I had fun. Aaron on the other hand had the job of painting doors. He milked that job for as long as he could.
We went and picked up Ash, headed home and cooked chili.
Here are some pictures of our day.
Don't forget pics are clickable.

Don't they look excited to meet the Easter bunny?
All dressed and ready to go.
Finally we meet him.
It was just one of those days I absolutely love.

Small shoes to fill

I have lots of things that have been given to us by some generious people. I must say though that these have got to be the cutest. I love baby feet and even more when there are small shoes on them.

Whew what a day!

I took the babies for their 4 month check up today. They are so big!!!! But you already knew that. We will start with Lily- sweet little Lily. She weighs 11 lbs 3.5 oz, 23 inches tall. She is in the 10% for her height and weight but she is following her own curve so the Dr said she is doing well. I had to make an appointment to see the eye dr for her eye. It still has yellow goopy stuff and the 2 drops we have used are not helping. It just keeps coming back. We have an appt next week. Preston, Preston, Preston "big guy" 14 lbs 6 oz, 24 inches tall 50% for weight and 25% for height. He is a big healthy boy that's for sure. The doctor said it's ok to start them on solids. Good thing because I already did, about 3 weeks ago for Preston and 2 weeks ago for Lily. Preston is still just eating cereal and squash and Lily cereal and some squash. She doesn't care for it too much. She makes the funniest face. I feed them both cereal in the morning and then at night they get squash (Preston) and cereal (Lily)
Ashley went to the orthodontist today. We knew she needed braces but after talking to him we will probably wait and put them on in Canada. Since she will only get 3 months worth of treatment. There is a minimum due before you can transfer otherwise you still owe it. With only having 3 months we won't be even close to the minimum due. We have 100% dental through Aaron's work so we will get them there. I have already talked to an ortho there.
I have been able to get alot done for our big move. On Tuesday I was a cleaning machine. We had a listing agent come out to take a look at the house. It's not on the market. I have a few more realtors I want to talk to first. You don't want to go with the first one right? So far we have talked to insurance, realtors, car dealers and locals in St. John's. Here we have done the usual cleaning, getting passport, updating vehicle stuff. There is so much you put off and put off until finally you have to do it all at once. So for all you procrastinators out there get your stuff done because when you let it pile up the day will come when you HAVE to do it.
Take care I hear a babbling baby in there. What time is it? He thinks it's party time.

OK it is done

I will leave the blog public for a week to allow people to get invited onto the new blog.
The new blog address is:
Please change your favorites, bookmarks and feeds. Feel free to send the blog to whomever you wish. Just send an email to the following address to be invited.
Once you send an email I will add you to the new blog. I am sorry this is all so confusing. I should have made this private a long time ago. I always forget that there are mean people out there who have nothing else to do but stalk people on the internet.

Take care- Staci

Change again

Until I figure out how to make the blog private and have google notify me when people want to get on it's public again.
I have a blog friend that did this I just need to contact her to see what she did.
