Bedtime story

We always read a bed time story to the kids at night. They each get to choose one and, Katie's is usually REALLY long :) A few things going on around here:
1. Tys broke out in a rash on his belly and legs last night.. they look like the chicken pox! It's just a mild case and he doesn't seem to be in too much discomfort... however, we are now staying home and away from people until they've cleared.
2. I cut 3 - 4 inches from Katie's hair this afternoon. I don't have any pictures yet but all the long blonde hair you see in the above picture is gone!! It was really getting to be unhealthy and she was always complaining about it being "a mess" or, "a bad hair day". She's not a fan of having her hair combed so, I think she's happy to have it gone. Of course, she'll grow it out again but for now it'll be cute for the summer.
3. I cut out the pieces to Katie's new Easter dress. This was after I had pinned it down and thought "something about it isn't right" So, I waited and had my mom look at it. Sure enough, I was about to mess it all up! So I repinned and cut it and, am thankful for my patient teacher, My Mom!
4. Trent is now sleeping any where from 4-6 hours at a time during the night! He is in size 3-6 month clothes and wearing either cloth or disposable diapers ~ yippea!! Katie and Tys could only ever wear one or the other....
5. I have been working-out on my new treadmill 4-5 days a week. I haven't worked out faithfully since Katie was born so, as you can just imagine... I'm really out of shape! It feels great and I'm "training" to run the Women's Fitness Celebration, in Boise, in Sept. My mom and I are doing it together so, that helps keep me motivated. I can't be out-done by my mom :)
6. Casey is working days this week then, starts his 7 days off this Friday (however, he'll be working o.t. next Mon-Wed) I'm so thankful that I have a husband who can juggle working hard at his job and still spends quality time with his family!!
