My baby boy is four today! We got him a new bike.....he outgrew the old one last year. He wanted to go to Applebee's for his birthday, so we went. He orders mac and cheese.........it is Kraft!!!! (I don't get why kids think it is so much better when you get it for 4.00 rather than .50 cents!!!)

We had the kids party this weekend. We got to see all of our great friends, and the kids had a great time too! I felt like a big kid......acted like one too!

Hope your weekend was great! Have a wonderful week!

Love and Hugs,

Almost 7!!!!

It is so hard for me to believe that my baby girl will be 7 on Saturday!!!!! She wasn't planned for........but she was the best suprise I have EVER gotten!!!!!
She came and my life has never been the same! Holding her chubby little body (she was almost 9 lbs......a healthy baby!!!) she needed so much! Now she is so independent, helping her little brother, caring for the cats, helping around the house.
All she wants for her birthday are "scrapbook things" ..........'cuz she wants to be just like me. (POOOOOORRRRR GIRL!!!!) I got her a book and some stickers, as well as some jammies. She is the first grandchild in both our families so she will get spoiled with toys and clothes, so I don't like to get her that!!!

Well, all is great here..........although I am really behind visiting everyone. Once we get into Feb it will be better........I hope!!!!!

Love and Hugs,


90% off

My grandma and I hit target yesterday.......just as they put the 90% off up in the Christmas isle!!!!!! I got some stay lit lights for hubby to put up next year, wrapping paper, two Christmas flags and a few other things for 17.00!!!!!!!! I did a little happy dance, although Grammy thought I was on crack! She found a few nice things too, and confessed that she had always wanted to do that! Whoooooo Hoooooooo.

Well the kiddies are on vacation with my parents for the weekend. It is nice to have the house quiet......but I should be cleaning, and I think I will soooooooooon!

Hope all is well! Have a wonderful weekend!

Love and Hugs,


Dino boy

Slackers.......housewife addition

Well, I do have my tree down, but really nothing else has gotten done since Christmas!!!!

Now it is time to start Brie back on her schooling, and Ryan back to a normal schedule.........and it isn't happening! Part of the problem is that they both have birthdays this month. My baby boy will be four and big sister is almost 7!!!!!! I was able to make the first page of Ryan's scrapbook.......almost four years late.....but it looks really nice!!!!!

Love and Hugs to all,
