We came back from a weekend at Jeremy and Keely's house to find our very full freezer was part way defrosted. Then discovered the knob had been turned off and both the fridge and freezer are controlled by that one knob. I cleaned out the fridge on Thursday and assumed I somehow bumped even though it was in a really awkward place to do so. I left to go get replacement milk and McDonalds for supper while Caden admitted to Aaron that he turned the knob. So sad to throw tons of food away, but we didn't want to take the chance of eating food that might make us sick. Caden knows to never touch that knob again and we know to check it every single day and before we leave the house for a few days!
Aaron is excited about teaching the kids to play baseball this spring and summer. We aren't old enough to play on the town team and they don't know a thing about it anyway. They got gloves, balls, bats, and a tee stand for their last birthday. It's fun to watch them with Daddy.

First day of Spring Break and we went to go see my high school friend, Missy, and her two kids Sumner and Ava. I finally got to see her beautiful house -- I think she's lived there a long time but I never make it over there. It was nice to visit and the kids had fun too!
Addison and Caden love playing on the computer. They play Nick Jr. games and can navigate that site pretty well. Caden also browses the Marvel/Hasbro site to look at his "guys". They were using the computer so much that I now have a timer set and they get a 30 minute time limit to play once a day.
I spent A LOT of time in the van today! Drop kids off at school, drop Reese off at Grammy's, go to my doctor's appointment, go to the lab for a blood draw, go to Walmart to fill prescription and am turned away, go to Walgreens (surprise there's a wait), pick up Ethan at school, stop by McDonalds to get Ethan lunch, go to Grammy's to get Reese and let Ethan play a minute, back to Walgreens to pick up prescription, then back to school to pick up Caden and Addison. I probably put 200 miles on the van doing all this!

My whole day was spent painting. I started in upstairs toy closet while Reese napped. It's orange and kind of weird and bright and dark all at the same time. Then I had some furniture and other items for their room to work on. It took quite a big chunk of the afternoon to get 2 coats of paint on all these items.

Preschool homework: decorating an Easter Egg. Addison is an eager beaver about getting "homework" done -- she worked on her egg several days and did lots of techniques: glitter, paint, glue, stickers, markers, ribbon, and tissue paper. She was ready to turn it in a few days before the due date. Caden hadn't even started and 10 minutes before bedtime, he wants to get his egg done so he can turn it in with Addison. He chose to put lots of Spiderman stickers on the bottom. He had to wait until the weekend to finish. The top was red with glittered web and a felt spider and he still turned it in on time.
