... but you can't take the 'Ham out of the Lewis

What's going on up here anyhow?

All 3 of our kids have the chicken pox! It's a very exciting time at our house. I had hoped to get them over with before Theo started pre-K next year. Now Penny & Felix have theirs out of the way as well. So far, they haven't been a big deal at all. Penny has the most (about 50), Felix has lots (slightly less than Penny, maybe 40?), and Theo doesn't have many at all (10 max). They are sleepier and quieter than usual, but nothing substantial is bothering them yet. Penny & Felix already have several pox that have turned into blisters, but they don't seem annoyed at all. Here they are watching Maisy and having a snack (not a bad life, if you ask me).

Egg Hunt Pictures

My mom sent these to me yesterday. Aren't they great! We clearly had a wonderful time playing with friends and hunting eggs last week.

Felix can roll over!! He was laying on his stomach last night and I saw him rock, rock, turn his head, and roll over onto his back. He hasn't done it again since, but I know he will. He is getting so much stronger and more active. It is fun to see him grow!

We are excited to be celebrating Holy week here at our house. We've colored eggs, participated in a Palm Sunday parade, and we got a few new books today to read this week. Theo & Penny are so excited. I realized, we spend so much time talking about and reading about Christmas with our little ones, but not as much time teaching them about Easter. I want to make sure I show my family the beautiful story of Jesus' life and what it means to us. Most of all, I am excited to witness the new life and growth in my own home. The Lord is good...all the time. All the time....the Lord is good!

Fun egg hunt at church today. It was so great to see my mom and Sandy enjoying this special time with the kids. Andy had a 1/2 day, so we all went out for lunch before the grandmas headed home.

Pics once my mom & Sandy send me some!


So, we were supposed to go to the Burlington Children's museum with Theo's pre-school class yesterday. My mom & Sandy were going to meet us there and we were all really excited about it. On the way to school, Theo mentioned that his teeth hurt. I asked him what he meant and looked into the rearview mirror to see him puking. Yuck! I, of course, took him home and he was perfectly fine the rest of the day. Weird. The grandmas came over and we had a great day together with egg dying, pizza, and playing dominoes.

I'll post pictures once I get some from my mom!

Spring Post #2

Theo had a program at school last night to celebrate Easter. They sang some really cute songs (some that I sang myself as a child). He was really enjoying himself and it was so sweet to see him doing things independently of me and Andy. He really is growing up!

Blog Goal for spring

I am going to attempt to give you one interesting Lewis family blog post per day to celebrate Spring 2010.

Spring Post #1

Felix is becoming a mover! He is only 4 1/2 months old, but he has a definite interest in getting himself from place to place. While he can't actually move in the traditional sense, he does have ways of getting around. His new favorite trick is to wiggle himself from the middle of our living room to partway under our couch. It takes him 10 minutes to accomplish and it's really fun to watch (thought I should admit that he usually does it while I'm folding laundry in the bedroom or stirring dinner in the kitchen). Here he is after achieving his goal this afternoon.
