As I said in the previous post, Lincoln got to experience a few days of being an only child. I really thought he would miss his sisters. I'm sure he did, but he also thoroughly enjoyed the attention he received. I was shocked that I hadn't realized how much of my attention was diverted to the girls even when I thought I was giving him my attention. We had a great time hanging out. He insisted on sitting in his chair to eat and insisted on an extended dinner time each evening. He became very fond of syrup...on everything.

Well, yet again, I'm severely behind on this blog. I'm not sure if it's a lack of time, energy, material, or motvation, or maybe all of the above. Oh, and I've had some computer and camera card issues. Nonetheless, for the two people that consistently check this blog hoping for an updated picture of their grandchildren, I am attempting to make a few updates. Spring Break flew by, but we managed to enjoy it. The girls went to my parent's house for the week, Lincoln stayed here with us. He went to school part of the time while I attempted to catch up on a few things around the house and Kevin and I managed to squeeze in a few lunch dates which is always pleasant. For the conclusion of spring break, we headed to MO to pick up the girls and spent a little time with family. The below picture is rather random, but it was of the kids waiting for my mom and grandma to arrive at the designated meeting place. The girls had a soccer game that morning and didn't have time to change, and Lincoln was antsy from the ride. They were eager to get to Grammy Tammy's, and Lincoln had no idea what was to come. I thought he would be lonely, but I think he enjoyed his week alone!

So, I'll play a little catch up. The last few weeks have completely kicked my butt. Getting back into the swing of things after two blissful weeks off has been a challenge. But I think we are almost back to normal, whatever that is! I've just posted a few pics of our recent in order and they start at the bottom and go up. Last Saturday the girls both had their first soccer game. I'd love to say it was fun, but it as 30 degrees outside, and I was alone because Kevin was sick. I don't have many pictures to post because I was trying to keep myself cuddled up in my blanket to stay warm. The girls both had a great time, and didn't seem to be bothered at all by the ice cold temperatures.
We went to Missouri for a quick trip a couple of weekends ago to celebrate my nephew Malachi's birthday. I can't believe he is already one! So cute, and he had a fabulous Mickey Mouse birthday party!
While in Missouri, Grammy Tammy was kind enough to let the girls deck her out in make-up, new hairstyles and nail polish. What a good sport.
They also did a little finger painting. Lincoln tried it too, but he wasn't fond of getting his hands dirty.
Lincoln got a new backpack, which he loves, and new shoes. It was like he instantly grew out of all his shoes. He went from several pair to wear to churh and school to none! He is growing like a week, but cuter than ever. I'm totally loving every minute of this stage. He has developed quite the personality, and loves to make everyone around him smile.
