Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny came to Mason's school so he wanted to get a picture with him. I happened to be at his school that day and his teacher mentioned that Mason had took his picture and wasn't even scared. I didn't see the bunny but she said he was actually really creepy looking. They decided not to use the head that came with the costume because they thought it would scare the children!!!! When he was dropped off at my school this afternoon I pulled out his picture and could not believe how awful the picture was. As the teachers came into the office to finish off the day I showed it to everyone and we all died laughing. Evediently I wasn't the only one that thought it was awful. There was a letter in his folder saying if you arn't satisfied with the picture send it back and there will be retakes with the bunny with a head piece!
I of course am going to keep it. This one needs to be sent to that website with scary home pictures. I can't remember what the name of that website is. Does anyone know?

Cowtown 5k

Our 3rd Annual cowtown 5k race. It was much warmer this year- thank goodness. You never know what kind of weather you will get in February. We had a great time and ran just about the whole race.

miracle league

We are so excited to find a baseball league just for special needs kids. Its called the Miracle League and the Texas Rangers sponsor it. Mason had his first practice on Friday. He loved it! He was so excited to be going to his own "basketball practice" (his words). Poor Mason has spent many of years going to all of Haydens and Callies games and just this last year he has been asking me when we can go to his games. Finally I found this league when I was talking to another mom at the special olympics last year. We have to drive to Arlington (which is 30 minutes away) but it will be worth it. Mason's first game is next week along with Callie and Haydens games all at the same time and of course Shawn in working. Luckily Hayden can go with the neighbor but I'll have to just drop Callie off!

spring break

Callie's spring break-Oh the joy of having a teenager!!! My spring break consisted of chauffeuring her and her friends around all week long. I was so ready to go back to work!

Pinewood derby

Masons 1st Pinewood derby. Mason wanted a Mario and Luigi car so we cut the wood in half and had two cars. We raced Luigi and he lost everytime. Mason seemed to be ok with it until he so kindly went up to another little boy whose car would just stop right in the middle of the track and he said to him, "you lost". After I scolded him for being rude, I said you lost too and then he just broke down in tears.
