We woke up to snow this morning and we are supposed to get another 2-4 inches tonight. It has been so cold here. The high today was 46.
Brooklyn informed me that James and I are both fat. She has also decided to pretend that she is allergic to sugar so that she won't eat it because it isn't healthy. That crazy child, the things she comes up with!

Kayla and Beef, the dog that we sometimes take care of.

Sierra went to the oral/maxillofacial surgeon this week and she also has an extra tooth that needs to be removed. The surgeon told her that she must be a witch doctor; only witch doctors have extra teeth. She will probably have the surgery in June and she is pretty nervous about it.

Brooklyn conned her father into buying her a light sabre and of course, he had to have one too so that they could have fights. She has also decided that she only wants to be called "Brooklyn," not Brooke or Boo. She now wants a Princess Leia wig and dress, cowgirl boots, and her own bedroom for her birthday.

I thought that this was a pretty funny picture of Jake. The next one is of Charlie. Then the girls, Brooklyn, Sierra, and Kayla.

Tyler turned 13 on Friday!!

We are officially the parents of a teenager! Tyler has decided the best thing about being 13 is that he can "legally" watch PG-13 movies. He is now counting down the days to his life's next big milestone, driving.

We have all been very busy. James has been traveling quite a bit lately. He is going to Houston, TX this week for a couple of days. I have been busy with school. I am taking a photography class that requires about 15 hours a week. The semester ends in a few weeks, then I have a short summer class, and then I have 2 months to do nothing. The kids have all been working hard in school and are also looking forward to summer.

Brooklyn has been struggling with making friends. She doesn't seem to get along with the girls her age and was afraid to be friends with the boys (she thought that if she was friends with a boy it meant he was her 'boyfriend'). We told her that it is okay to be friends with boys too. Then one day a boy in her class asked her to play a Star Wars game with him and his friends, now she can't wait to get to school to be Princess Liea. She wants a light sabre and cowgirl boots for her birthday.

Poor Sierra :(

This strange child ended up with a bad case of impetigo. It is a skin infection that is really common among kids. Leave it up to Sierra to get it. It started out looking like a cold sore and then another and then one morning she woke up looking like this.
