The Broken Ruler

Here's the story behind this random picture...
I brought home some papers to grade yesterday along with a ruler. I never looked at them, bit at least I had good intentions. This morning I gathered my things and found my ruler -broken- laying under the papers. I went to Paisley with it in my hand and her face fell. :(
Me: Paisley, what do you know about this broken ruler?
Paisley: Weeeelllllll, I was watching The Wizard of Oz a long, long time ago (or last night) and my foot hit it and it broke--granted this is a thick, heavy duty ruler that is difficult to break which is why we purchased them for my third graders ;-). I tried really, really hard to put it back together. I couldn't get it to stay so I just hid it from you. Sorry momma.
Me: As I tried so very hard not to laugh (and I didn't) I explained to her that it was wrong, it belongs to the school, my kids now won't have a ruler to use, blah, blah, blah.

I fear this spunky young lady will hide things and test us for many years to come.

New Look

The blog got a makeover tonight, but is still a work in progress. Just ignore the header picture for now. One of my most favorite-est things to do when I have time is customize this blog, so just bear with me.

Hoppy Easter

  Saturday morning we went to an Easter Egg Hunt at church. It was indoors because of all the rain. Paisley had fun playing games and racing around to find eggs. Beckett was happy as could be just riding in the stroller...have I said lately what a GOOD baby he is!?!?!

Saturday night we dyed some gorgeous Easter eggs. We didn't do too many, but Paisley had a blast!

 Easter Morning!
Sunday morning all ready for church! Both smiling AND looking at the camera. Wow!

Cousins picture...Paisley, Ava, Adam, Juliann, and Beckett

Ready to tear into these baskets.
Eating candy and trying really hard for those puffs!


To see ALL the pictures I took from the weekend, go here...

Haircut. Plaid Cuties. Movin'. Good Smiles.

Beckett's First Haircut
After 3 haircuts from neurosurgeons, he was in need of a little shape up. Now it can be spiked!

Cuties in plaid...

Oh this boy of ours is so close to crawling. I feel like I've been saying this for a while though. He is still have physical therapy once per week. He is scooting and moving around. He will work pretty hard to get to whatever he wants, but then other times is a little lazy. One leg gets caught under his tummy and then he just sits back up. We are still working all the time! Luckily right now he is extremely content to sit on the floor and play with toys.

Oh handsome little boy, you are growing up so quickly. This is our glimpse into the future I believe.
