Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'm happy to report that Lucky the Leprechaun came last night and tinkled green in our potties and left a trail of rainbow sprinkles and Lucky Charms in our house! The kids just love it every year and then when I'm cleaning up the trail I wonder why he has to make such a mess!
All three of our cameras died on us and at practically the same time. That explains the lack of posts the past several weeks! But we're back in business! Thought I would post some of our test shots from the new cam...
This picture was actually taken with the last camera we had, but was on the same memory card. Rye is obsessed with the dog and this behavior is all day long. I've started feeling sorry for Rocky...

Emree, we are proud to report, has lost the snaggle tooth and was happy to get a visit from the Tooth Fairy. She is painting a rock in this picture...the girl is desperate for crafts!

I thought this was the funniest picture of Rett! I look at it and just laugh! He wanted a cookie, but I told him he had to give me a good smile and this is what I got! Needless to say, I gave him three cookies instead of one! He has been on a huge transformers kick for awhile now, but just over the weekend he found this paper he had with little smurf...yes, smurf toys and it is all we heard about over the weekend. Joey is trying not to encourage it. It is pretty funny though, when you see him walking around with a smurf paper!

Rye seems to be talking a lot lately. He will say thank you and your welcome together when you give him something. It sounds like," tank you wecome". I am happy (or rather sad) that he stayed in nursery in church on Sunday the whole time and was glad to be there. One of the assistants trains those helping dogs and she had the one in there that she is currently training and that's what got him to stay. I hope the dog is okay...

Tag I'm it!!!

I was tagged by Hilarry, who is one of the coolest people I know! I apparently need to update my blog (quit your complaining everybody!!) and I thought this would be a quick fix! So here it goes:

5 things I'm going to do tomorrow

1. run and weight train in the morning
2. go to Target (Rett's request)
3. go to Costco (eat a churro for sure!)
4. take Emree to dance class and drop off recycling while waiting (we're green in our house, it may be a very light minty green, but nevertheless green)
5. do some laundry (there isn't a day that goes by when this doesn't happen. It is the one true constant in our house)

5 snacks I enjoy

1. Kashi bars (this is when I'm being healthy)
2. Key Lime cookie (this is when I'm bad they're from locally owned Breck's Cookies, oh my gosh it is delicious!)
3. I love to take one bite of the kid's cereal in the morning before I give it to them...I don't know why, but I do.
4. whatever fruit that is in season, so that it is nice a juicy and sweet. mmmm.
5. cheese, crackers, and ham.. it is one of my Mom's delicous creations. (a cheez-it with a dab of cream cheese, and a little of Publix's shaved sweet ham on top. The kids LOVE these.)

5 places I've lived (this one's not very exciting for me)

1. Salt Lake City, Utah
2. Miami, Florida
3. Gainesville, Florida
4. Orlando, Florida
5. St. Cloud, Florida

5 places I've been

1. New York City
2. North Carolina
3. Mexico
4. Arizona
5. China, Germany, France, Canada, Morroco, Norway, England, Japan, Italy(at Epcot. It really feels like you're there!)

5 jobs I've had

1. server at Tony and Pat's Pizzeria in Gainesville (my first real job! I was so excited! But on revisting years later the place was a dump! But when I worked there it sparkled!)
2. hostess at a restaurant on South Beach named Paparazzi. It was right on Ocean Drive in the middle of pure chaos (can we say trannies?)!
3. Bally's fitness club in the daycare (a complete nightmare, thought I was going to be killed by a very angry man...looking back he must have been on roids.)
4. sold wreaths and crafty items at a craftshow
5. served at Disney World in one of their resorts (and yes, I still love Disney even after working there)

So there are my lists. Hope you enjoyed not-so-exciting Eva! I now tag Emily, Kara, and Catherine!!
