Jeff, Alicia and Elijah came over tonight for a few hours so we could get in a quick visit and pre-birthday celebration before we leave for FL on Sunday (Elijah turns 2 on Monday, Delanie on Tuesday). The three muskateers had a great time, as always. My birthday wish for the two-year-olds is that their friendship with each other remains strong throughout their lives and that they grow to learn the utter importance of family.
Happy Birthday Oskay Cousins!

1st Softball Game

The girls attended their first softball game last night. Southport High School (where I work) played Cathedral High School. Jason's cousin, Emily, plays for Cathedral. Even though the Cards won 7-0, we were very proud of cousin Emily. It's somewhat hard for me to say that, considering she is going to Purdue in the fall!

The girls got VIP treatment after the game and got to run the bases. Here is a picture of them with Frankie, my co-worker/the coach's daughter.

Happy (well, sort of) Belated St. Patrick's Day

The Oskay family planned to have a fun St. Patrick's Day. The weather here was great, sunny, 60s. Jason, I and the girls all played hooky from our respective duties that day to spend the day together and watch the St. Patrick's Day parade downtown Indy. Little did we know that our day would be spoiled when we returned to our parked car to find that someone smashed out our front passenger window. I left my work bag on the floorboard and they must have thought it was something valuable. I guess we should feel lucky that they didn't get anything "valuable"..they hit 3 other cars in the same lot and had already started charging credit cards and ordering checks. Guess we should have read the sign a little closer!

Delinquent Blogger

I take full responsibility if we have lost readers. I have been so bad about blogging lately. I don't really have an excuse. My camera charger has disappeared, so I do not have any good pictures to share. We have honestly just been in survival mode that last few weeks. Trying to get everyone to work, school, gammy's, Ms. Carol's, dinner, baths, mini training, dance class, keep the house clean, etc. We were excited for the few nice days of good weather, but now are back to the mid 30s...seems like a cruel joke.
If we have any readers left, they probably check our blog for updates on the girls, so here you go:
Emme-our dear 3 y/o has developed a bit of a mouth lately. It is really bothersome to Jason and I and we have had many heated parenting discussions. He attributes it to the new childcare environment. And though he may be right, my argument is that throughout their lives, the girls will have to be around other kids. Some of these kids will say and do things that we do not allow our girls to do. It is our responsibility as parents to teach our girls to make better choices. Needless to say, we are stressed parents right now and hope that it is just a phase. Emme continues to take dance class and we anxiously anticipate her recital in June. She continues to be our verbal child and her mind never stops...ever...

Delanie-She will turn 2 during our trip to FL, we are spending her bday at the Magic Kingdom. Poor D, I bragged to Jason a few weeks ago that our kids hadn't been sick all winter and sure enough, D has had two ear infections in the last 3 weeks. I suspect the first one never really went away. So, these two bouts of yuckiness have made her grumpy. She is doing well in school and sings songs she learns there more and more. She has a smile that will make you melt and thank goodness, because, can she test one's patience. She has also taken a liking to throwing herself on the ground when she hears the word NO..great times for all around.

I promise to be a more frequent blogger.....stay tuned for updates on our Spring Break Trip: 17 days and counting!
