like everyone else in oklahoma, we went to the zoo last thursday.  it wasn't quite as much fun as i was hoping...the wind was blowing at about 35 mph and they set a record attendance of 20,000 people that day!  macie loved it, though, so i'm thinking we'll have to plan another trip sometime in the near future.  the monkeys were by far her she will gladly let you know if you ask her about her day at the zoo.

papa's eyes

there is no doubt that macie got her sparkling blue eyes from her papa...everyone seems to notice how much they look alike!

for mom

my mom has been wanting a picture of macie to go over her fireplace in her new home.  hopefully one of these will work...leave me a comment and let me know which one you think she should pick!  or should i scratch all of these and try to do another shoot with my squirmy toddler?!?

pull me

this game is a result of the 2 weeks that we were in the house because of snow.  macie sits on her giant centipede (nothing that i would have picked out for her, but a gift from a lovely science teacher at school) and begs us to "pull" her around the house.  i think secretly blake hopes that she forgets about this game soon because it really takes a lot of energy on his part.  when she asks me to pull her i tell her i'm not strong enough and that she'll have to ask dada...a slight fib on my that bad of me?!?  anyways, i probably should pull her would burn lots of calories!

as much as i love the fall, there is just something refreshing about spring being right around the corner.  it is always such a relief for the loooong wrestling season to be over and to have free weekends again.  it has also been so nice to feel the warm sun shining on my skin the last few days.  blake (and macie) have been busy working on the garden the past few evenings.  i have big plans for the garden "bounty" this year (we really didn't get much out of our garden last year!).  i would love to get into canning this summer...if anyone has any tips or good sites for canning/recipes please pass them along.  hope you are feeling refreshed and giddy about spring and all that comes with it.
