Update--it is 5:30 in the morning and I am wide awake after only a couple hours of sleep because Dh has been hit with it to. Now lets hope that the odds are in my favor of staying healthy. (doubtful though)

So Gabe spent the morning laying on the couch watching shows. He looks so excited don't you think.
I thought that I would share some of the crafts that we have been working on around here.
Gabe got this really fun art project from my SIL for his birthday. He had so much fun painting it and putting all of the stickers on it.
The boys have been working on their sewing and they made hand puppets this week. Gabe made an alien hippo. Sam made a cute little puppy for his brother.

The rules for this one are simple - you go to your pictures folder and go to the sixth one and then you find the sixth picture and post it.
Ok now I have to tag 6 more people for this, and I can not wait to see what they have to share.
3.) Amber (Maybe she will get back to blogging :))
4.) Mrs. Darling
5.) Piseco mom
And last but not least
First up is My Name Is Not Isabella by Jennifer Fosberry. This book is written really well in my opinion. It has beautiful drawings and a wonderful story line. A little girl tells her mom through out the day that she is not Isabella, but that she is different famous women through out history. It would make a great story read for next month during womens history month.

The Green Lantern

There has been some reading. I found Gabe reading a book about ancient egypt to all of his animals on Gorilla Mountain. He said that they were actually reading their own books. To share a little about the Mountain set. We got it for his birthday and he loves it. I highly recommend it. The whole set folds up nicely for storage. It is really sturdy too. He has had it for a whole week and nothing is broken yet. That says a lot because 90% of the time the kid breaks something within the first 24 hours of having it (that is usually on purpose to).
Are you ready to cook with us......

Here are ice cream sundae cupcakes. They were very large, It took a couple of days to eat it. They were oh so yummy though.

I bought the boys a hula hoop the other day. I thought that it would be a fun way for them to have gym class. I got the video of each of the first time trying it. Gabe was just having fun. Sam though surprised me on how good he could do (ok I was jealous of him). Since the video he has been doing it and can get it going for up to 30 seconds. He is a big fan of the Guiness World Records, so now he wants to keep going until he can break the record. As long as he keeps at it I am positive that he will. So I hope that you enjoy the videos.

We did take today off because the boys (me too) were very tired from yesterday. So the following shots are of some of the activities that they did today.
Dh teaches the science and on friday's he has science experiments. He is going to start letting Sam do the experiments every other week. He gets to come up with them and then teach everyone. Today he spent some time trying to come up with his first one. This one is one that he found in the back of the newest family fun magazine. I will show pictures on Friday if it works for him.
Gabe spent alot of time playing on his leapster. We gave him Sam's old one yesterday and he loves it. He has already spent hours playing with it. When he is not playing with it, he is at his table playing with all of his toy animals on his table. He loves playing that he has his own zoo.
