We're So Proud!

We're so proud of Chase & Bradley. They both did really good in the President's Fitness test in P.E. and got their names on the board! What makes this funny though is what Chase said about it. One day I was driving them to school and Chase said, "Mom, I really want to be the big winnner of the WHOLE President's Fitness Test!" I said, "yeah Chase, that would be great!" Then he said, "Mom, the winner gets a SIGNED certificiate from President Obama!" I didn't really know what to say, because I was thinking big whoop! So, I just said, "Oh really? That's cool." Then it all made sense to me, he then said, "If I win, I'm just gonna tell the P.E. teacher NOT to put my name on the certificate then I'm gonna SELL that certificate on Ebay and make a bunch of money! It's his real signature Mom, think of how much money I could make!" Oh, you gotta love Chase. Always thinking of how to make a buck! Chase did the most sit-ups for a boy in 4th grade...56! Go Chase!
Bradley did the best in 2 categories for a boy. He did 47 push-ups and he tied with another boy for 60 sit-ups! Go Bradley!

Do You Laugh or Cry???

So, Bradley & Chase were playing baseball with some kids in the neighborhood the other day. Chase was up to bat. Bradley decides to THROW a rock at Chase to try & get him to miss the ball! He didn't throw it out of anger, just STUPIDITY! He SAID he was aiming for Chase's legs, but instead hit Chase in the FACE with the rock. So, of course Chase starts crying and comes in the house. Chase had a big smear of red dirt on his face. I get him calmed down and wipe off his cheek and see there's a big red scrape on his face. So, I go get Bradley (who was hiding from me) and start yelling at him. I give him the whole "wait until your Dad gets home" line and send him to take a bath. He comes downstairs after taking his bath and he has his pj's on and says to me, "Mom, I know Dad's gonna either spank me or slap me, so I put like 6 pairs of underwear on." I can't figure out if he's just saying that or if he really did it, so I look. SURE ENOUGH, he had 5 layers on. Look below!!! Do I laugh or cry? Kids...there is NEVER a dull moment! Needless to say, me & Jared laughed so hard that we couldn't even bear to punish him. Jared just gave him a stern "talkin' to".

2 pairs of underwear, 2 boxer shorts & 1 pj pants!!!

How can you spank a kid that looks like this????

Happy Easter!

We had a great Easter Sunday. Jared's parents & my sister and her husband came over that day. We all went to church together, then came back to our house for a big Easter dinner. After dinner, Uncle Greg & Brooke hid Easter eggs and Chase & Bradley went and looked, or should I say RACED to find them! It was a great day and we're glad we got to spend the day with family.
Chase & Bradley fighting over an egg.

We lost count on how many times Chase would trip & drop his basket. If you KNOW Chase you know how funny this is. He would start laughing & couldn't even pick up the eggs! Really funny!

Brooke & Nana working on her "John Deere" quilt!!! Yes, it's true, Brooke WANTED a John Deere quilt. I think we need to get her out of the "country"! (Brooke hates this picture & says she looks "evil"! Get over it Brooke, it's the only picture I have of you that day!)

Uncle Greg and little Jacob. Little, cute, squishable, ADORABLE, little Jacob. Have I told you I'm his FAVORITE aunt?!? :)

This was the best picture I found, out of about 30 Pictures taken! We just couldn't keep everyone still, so this is IT!!!
