more randomness...

lots and lots going on....
bad news first, our kitty cat, Socks, passed away this past Sunday.  while it was very sad, he lived a looong life, by all we can tell he was at least 19.  that is an old cat!  he will be missed.
ansley kate had to get sealants put on her 6 year molars, they said that the grooves were way deep and this will help her prevent cavities in the future and that is good.  she was an awesome patient, although today she said that her jaw is sore.
the kitchen is coming along slowly but surely.  it looks amazing, i am fortunate to have a husband that is so crafty.  i will post some pictures soon, start to finish.  we are still trying to pick out a paint color and sometimes that can take forever!
sarah has become addicted to superfroggy and now jake has found a new game, superbunny.  i tell you my 3 year old is much more in tune with electronics than i am.  amazing!
work is what it is for me, but now we are waiting to see what will be happening with jake.  there is a 6.5 million dollar deficit in the fire department and they are trying to come up with ways to fix that, none of the ideas bode so well for the employees.  however, i really hope that what they come up with is in their best interest.
well all for now but more to come later, including pictures....MUST get my camera back out!

Random things that have been accidentally left out of our blogs because time passes so quickly!
Sunday January 23, 2011
I asked Sarah to get dressed today, I did not expect much.  She came down in pink pants, a flowered shirt and pink socks.   Plus, it all matched!  I could not believe that she did that!  Today was the first time that she fully picked out and dressed herself!  AWESOME!

Ansley Kate lost her 4th tooth today!

Ansley Kate lost her 5th tooth today!
Somewhere in here we registered Sarah for Pre-K.  How did it get time to do that?  Made me pretty teary!  I am sure she will be amazing at school!

Sarah's second trip to the dentist.  She acted like an old pro!  So proud of her!
Somewhere in here Ansley reached Gold level reading at school.  She also has 3 puzzle pieces.  I am so glad that she loves to read!

Ansley's last violin least for now.  Just don't think she was totally into it yet.  :(  (I think that she will pick it back up, but for now practice with BatBat will do.)

Brand new Ikea kitchen delivered in 121 boxes....can't wait to see the results.  While cleaning all my pictures off the fridge there were so many of all my sweet friends and my babies under the newer photos.  That was a hard task to tackle.  Jake has them together and the old cabinets for the wallpaper removal and install!

Ansley's teacher conference...just confirms my child is a genius.  :)
And the bestest news for last, I am going to be an aunt finally!  Gil and Rachel are having a baby!  Woo Hoo!  Can NOT wait to meet and hold baby niece/nephew...notice niece first, I am partial to girls.  :)
Sure I left out something......

roller skating...

so on Sunday, we went roller skating (yes, old time, middle school roller skating)!  good news, nothing broken, only a few brusies.  ansley and sarah had a hard time standing up at first but did get better.  i was so proud of ansley for trying so hard, she never gave up, she skated for 3 hours...well she fell for 3 hours.  sarah cracked me up because she wanted to help a 'little girl' learn to remember she can't stand up.  it was so much more fun than I thought it would be and we had a great time, blisters and all.

Ansley spent most of the time on the ground.

Bear making it on the carpet.

By the end, she got it (kinda)

Looking at me like I'm nuts.
