Boy vs. Food

The following photos pretty much sum up my kids. Grace is very different than Jack in all areas of life. The number one difference: food. Unless it's chocolate, covered in chocolate, smells like chocolate or looks like chocolate, Jack could really care less about eating it. Grace is all about food ALL the time. ("she get it from her Mama...")

Jack's lack of eating, especially of vegetables, really bothers my Mom, so she's been working with him to eat better and try new things at meals. We had peas the other night and when I sat down at the table I thought "no way is he eating those,"--but, to my surprise my Mom got Jackson to eat not 1, but 7 peas that night!!!! VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the promise of 2 of these puppies may have had something to do with it ;) whatever works, right?

video for Daddy

While we were on vacation in Destin, Grace kept calling my aunts and sometimes my cousin the name "Judy"--there's no one named Judy in my family. She said it so 'matter of factly' that we found it hilarious--here she is talking to Judy on the phone....and yelling at Max the dog.

babe--how hilarious is this??

Destin-take 1

The kids and I took a very FUN trip to Destin Florida with all the women on my Mom's side of the family. Aside from our horrific trip down through all the tornadoes in Alabama, it was one of the best trips we've had!

this post is Destin- take 1 because I'll be heading back (sans kids!!!) at the end of the month with a group of 10 girls for our ASB2K11 (Adult Spring Break 2011!!!)

We spent Easter this year in Indiana--My mom and I had the great idea to go to Easter Vigil Mass so that the kids could enjoy their baskets on Easter morning. STUPID IDEA. The mass was 2 hours long and the kids were WILD.

i love this picture--so sweet of the kids and really pretty of my Mom.

my handsome boy and my sassy girl's pretty curls.
Easter morning--Jack prayed and prayed for the gun that shoots balls, thankfully the Easter bunny was able to get one!

Gracie got a baby that cries and takes a bottle--she LOVES her!
but, what she loved MOST was the candy, of course!

"Back Home INDIANA!!"

I've gotten a little behind with the blog lately--here are some pics from last month, we traveled from Ohio to Indiana in mid April to stay for a few weeks.

My Mom drives a school bus and took Jack for a ride one day--he had an ABSOLUTE blast!!
