little helpers

I took these pictures because I was telling one of my friends that housework is therapy, especially when the kids are doing it. the very next day, Anberleigh spilled some pot pouri and mixed it in the cat's water dish! yuck! so here she is, after I took off her wet clothes, she whined and fussed to have the towels, so I gave some to her, and this is what she did!  Funny how they are so eager and excited to help when they are just learning! I wish my older kids liked to 'help' as much as she does. 
(I put the 'fuzzy' photos in there so you could see the action!)

Valentine's date

Ben took me to a very nice restaurant for Valentines day. Deep Fork Grill in Oklahoma City. This was our first real date since Anberleigh was born. Thank you, Bethany for babysitting while we were away. The food was wonderful and we enjoyed the quiet atmosphere.

I don't know why I choose this photo for my blog today, I guess because my Sylvester is just so cute.
 I was sifting through photos and just wanted to share my kitty with the rest of you. The funniest story about this cat is that his name used to be Sylvia. When I purchased him, at the pet store I was told he was a female. I had asked for a female because we had a female cat already and we thought it would be best.  Well, she was the cutest little black and white kitty and looked just like the cartoon cat, Sylvester so I named her Sylvia. I scheduled her vet appointment and took her in for shots and they scheduled for her to be spayed in about 6 weeks. On the 5th week, I was at work, when ben called me and excitedly said, "where'd you get that cat and does she come with papers" I said "I got her at the pet store in the mall and she came with a receipt, but not pedigree papers". He said "well, I need to talk to you when you get home." So I rushed home after work, all the  while wondering what was the problem..... When I walked in the door, Ben greeted me with the most curiously silly grin on his face. "What's wrong", I asked. "That is not a girl cat", he chuckled, Sure enough, we had to change her name to Sylvester. We were literally rolling all over the floor laughing until our eyes watered and our faces hurt from laughing. Luckily we discovered the mistake before I took him in to be spayed....although the vet hadn't caught the gender mistake either.

This was Anberleigh's 1st birthday trip to Incredible Pizza in OKC. She was showing off for my friends and played peek a boo. What a character she is!

Sitting Bull and desperado.

Bethany was Sitting Bull and Brit was a cowboy, searching for water, in the LIGHT group's first drama class performance. The play was called Billy Bart, Scourge of the West, directed by Amy Stuart.  All the kids did a great job and the class was alot of fun. We look forward to the next one, Wizard of Oz!
