This next picture is how I found Pookie and the kiddos when I came home from the grocery store. If you know anything about Grant you know he does not like sleeping. This picture is so funny because he looks like he just fell out climbing into Pook's arms. Apparently, he'd been asleep on the couch and fell off of it. He ran to find Pook and he was rocking Claire, so he climbed in his lap too and went right back to sleep. So sweet!I've decided to go on and go back to work a little early, so this is my last week of maternity leave. As much as I've enjoyed being off, I think it's harder to be here than it is to be at work. I can't get anything done here anyway, and I'm ready to get back in the groove. I never thought I'd say that! Kudos to you SAHMs. I don't think I'm cut out to do what you do, at least not at this stage. I know I'll miss being home, but hopefully I'll adjust again quickly. Miss Claire might have a little harder time. She hates the bottle, so next week will be interesting to say the least. I'm just going to try to enjoy this week to the fullest with them!

And here's my little guy in his new t-shirt that he was SOO proud ofSunday was the egg hunt at church. Grant told me before church that he did not need my help this year. He is getting more and more independent. Last year, he was terrified of the Easter Bunny and this year, he couldn't get enough of him. He climbed right up in his lap and then followed him around the auditorium. He even pulled his little tail.
This picture is right after Grant pulled his tail. For some reason my camera wouldn't focus when he was doing it.
So, we've been busy this week and we've had a house guest. We've probably been more trouble to her than she has to us. She's not accustomed to being chased by a little boy or listening to screaming babies. I can't complain because she's actually mine, but I left her with my mom when I moved in the sorority house in college and have never taken her back. Although she's been very good, I now am positive that it will be quite some time before we have a dog of our own.

She's on her way over in this next picture:
Daddy is so good at playing in the snow (or anywhere) with Grant.
Can you tell he loved it? When I told him Friday that it was supposed to snow. He said maybe it will be Christmas. I tried to explain that it was just winter when it snowed, not neccesarily Christmas.
We had fun, and I'm so glad we had a little time to play in the snow. Now, I'm glad it's gone and all I can say is BRING ON SPRING!! I'm so so ready for warmer weather, not hot, just warmer. I'd order low 70's if I could. Hope everyone enjoyed the snow as much as we did!!

BTW, the mirror thing worked out on Monday and all is well with that. Claire took her first and hopefully only trip to the junkyard and so did I. I had the mirror fixed before Pookie even got home. Unless he's read this, he still doesn't know about it. Not that I'm hiding it or anything.. it just hasn't come up!

After being very irritated at Pookie a couple of weeks ago for his tickets, now I just feel stupid. At least he was actually driving to work when he cost us the money. I, on the other hand, was just searching for a turtle. I didn't blog about his ticket(s) but it was for driving in the HOV lane, not wearing a seat belt, and tailgating. This was not the first HOV lane violation or seat belt ticket, but he's very hard headed or thinks he's above the law.. who knows! The tailgating thing he swears the guy made up just to make the ticket more because the other two things combined were only $22.00. Just our luck. Hopefully our luck with vehicle related things will improve, but it always seems to be something with them.
BTW, my little girl is sleeping through the night still! I think it's been 4 or 5 nights in a row. I'm still waking up, but she's not. Maybe, I'll get used to it soon.. just in time for her to change or something. I'm very thankful for now!
