April 10, 11 and 12

April 10 Allie and I drove to OKC for a couple of days so I could get my hair colored by my former hairdresser. I have had lots of bad luck (I think because of the products used) in McKinney and needed to get things back under control. I don't know why we have to have gray hair, but I don't like it!!! Anyway, Allie stayed with Jeff's parents during the day and I got a chance to go to the office for a bit. I picked up Allie and went to mom and dad's. We ended up at El Chico's for dinner and Allie had the best time. She loves seeing her Gapgas and Jujus.

April 11 I got my hair done and we headed back to McKinney. Allie slept from Edmond to Ardmore. She looks pretty comfy, don't ya think?

April 12 Happy Easter!! We got up around 7:00 which was way too late for the 8:00 service. Luckily, since we go to a very large church, they were having multiple services (six I think), so we were going to shoot for the 9:00 service. Of course we didn't make that one either and ended up at the 10:00 service. So sad... But, it did allow us time to take some family pics in our Easter clothes. We came home, fixed ham, homemade mac and cheese, green beans and bread and sat at the dining room table for lunch. Jeff and I took naps while the kids played and then we hunted eggs. All in all, a fun day!

April 9

April 9 Well, we (Allie and I) have been sick around here and I have not taken pics the last couple of days. Today, there were loads of fires in North Texas and Oklahoma. It caused the sky to be red. Really, really freaky. Made for a pretty picture though. We were never in danger, as the fires were well west of us, but the smoke make it all the way to us because of the wind. I hope it doesn't make our sickies any sicker around here!

April 5 & 6

April 5 We got back to work on the bed this afternoon. We had finished cutting the boards for the legs last weekend, so we got to work sanding. Lance even got to help out. He was pretty proud of himself. We were all covered in sawdust. The kids had some extra green dust from the chalk they colored my front porch with. Wonder how long it will take for that to go away???

April 6 Laundry day. What else is there to say other than blah!!

March 28 - April 4

March 28 Jeff woke me up at 7:00 on a Saturday. I was a little upset with him until he showed me why he did it. It was snowing!! The end of March and snowing in Texas. CRAZY! It of course didn't stick to anything. It had been in the 70s the days before, but it was pretty neat to see. Definitely worth an early rise!
March 29 We spent most of the day outside working on Lance's bed. Jeff is building a bunk bed with a desk underneath. We have had the plans and the wood for a couple of months now (at least), but this was the first day of work on it. Of course did I get any pics of him working on it? NO! I came out with the camera and Allie wanted me to take a picture of her. So, I did. Then apparently I put it up and forgot about it. Oh well. I am sure there will be many other opportunities to get pics of the bed in progress.

March 30 Allie getting caught sneaking grapes out of the fridge. Like the hair?? She came to me with three "headbands" and wanted them all in her hair. So, I made piggies on the two sides and a pony in back. She ran around all day looking like this. Silly girl!

March 30 This is what you call a bad hair day. Lance took a shower the night before, but didn't bother to dry his hair before bed. Well, after a good night's sleep, this was the result. Needless to say, we had to wet it down and start over before going to school.

March 31 This is Allie getting her shoes on for school. She is still loving it, even though she is having a rough time with the transition between lunch and nap. Apparently she tends to throw temper tantrums when her teachers tell her that lunchtime is almost over. Funny thing is that once she calms down, she always naps.
April 1 We had soccer practice today and Allie and I went for the first hour or so of it. She ran around and had a great time. We came home and she took a bath, ate a second dinner and laid on the couch with Jeff while I helped Lance get ready for bed and do a little bit of homework. When I went to check on her, she had crashed. So, by 9:00, we had both kids in bed asleep and Jeff and I got to watch TV by ourselves. That almost never happens!

April 3 Allie had a birthday party this morning for her school friend Kate. Kate's mom is the music teacher at her school, so there were lots of kids from her class, as well as two of her teachers who also have kids around the same age. Allie was thrilled when we walked in and she saw Mrs Kim and then later Mrs Audra. She loves them so much! She had a great time at the party and I had a hard time getting her to leave. I think she would have stayed all day if I would have let her!

April 4 We had an Easter Egg Hunt today with the mom's group. Other than having to pull Lance away from the candy that came out of the pinata, so that the little kids could get some, we had a great time. The weather was pretty cold and windy for a while, but once we started the hunt, the clouds parted and the sun came out, which was really nice.
