Annabelle Lee - Kindergarten Graduate
This was Grace's last year at St Anne's (and most likely Annabelle's as well, but more on that later). We love this school so much, but it is time to move on. Thankfully, Michael will be starting pre-kindergarten next year so St Anne's isn't quite done with the Rogers Family yet. And in a year or two Miss Faith will follow her big sisters and brothers and go to preschool there as well.
The kids will have one more week to roam the halls when they attend science camp this summer. This will be Michael's first taste of school, and will give Annabelle and Grace another opportunity to see their friends.

We have an extremely busy summer ahead of us.....

Some Things...

Nap time with Annabelle and Grampa
We are trying a new method of bathing here since the weather is warming up. As you can see, Faith is getting ready for her turn.

After seeing this recipe over at Smitten Kitchen, and due to the fact that I happen to have a whole bag of onions, we will be having French Onion Soup for dinner.

I can hear the protests from the kids already, and I could not possibly care less.

Happy 6, Annabelle!!

Ok, so these are a little late...but here are a few pictures from Annabelle's birthday last week.

Here she is with her birthday hat, decorated by Grace, and her gift from her Daddy.

The cake - which is actually 18 cupcakes - decorated to look like a mama owl and her 4 babies. Grace decorated the 4 baby owls!

The birthday knitting lesson at The Salty Sheep in Swansboro.

Happy Birthday, Annabelle Lee.

I always have knitting with me in the car since it is a great way to pass the time while waiting for the kids (to get out of school, dance class, Daisies, ets..... I do a LOT of waiting int he car).

Mama: Michael, what are you doing tied to the piano bench?
Michael: I'm playing with Annabelle and Grace.
Mama: I see. Where are Annabelle and Grace now?
Michael: I don't know.

Michael: Of course!! I can do cute.

Potty Time

So, guess what I found the other morning....
Faith had removed her pants and diaper, and decided she wanted to use the potty. Never mind that she is sitting on it backwards, apparently the child has decided enough is enough with the whole diaper thing. I could not agree more.
And as you can see, she is pretty happy about it.

A Moment of Silence

I am not exactly sure what they are doing here, plotting to take over the world no doubt (more likely playing a game on, but you never know). But I do know that for about 5 glorious minutes, there was no fighting, screaming, or yelling. Actually there wasn't any noise at all.

Ah, sweet silence.

Dearest Uncle Mac -

We are so glad you were able to come and see us, if even for such a super short visit. We miss you already and can't wait to see you again.

You might want to brush up on your Just Dance skills, though. The kids are practicing pretty hard. Especially Michael, and as you know his dance skills were pretty smokin' already.

Much Love,

Grace, Annabelle, Michael, Faith, George, Eric and Anne

While they may appear to be sweet and innocent, don't be fooled.
These two are nothing but trouble. (Especially when they are in cahoots. One must always be on the lookout for cahooting.)

Annabelle Lee

Annabelle Lee - sitting in my room, playing around on her new guitar and looking way too old for this Mama.

Party Pics

Here are some pictures from Faith's party yesterday.

We bought a package of scrapbook paper and made the decorations (Daddy and Grace did most of the work).
Everyone had a party hat.

And clearly we were all very excited...
Faith didn't quite understand the whole blowing out of the candles thing (as you can see she is looking at us like we are nuts), so we had to help her out a bit.
But she loved the cake! Chocolate cake, strawberry filling and peanut butter frosting. Yum.
