Need a pick me up?

So on those rough mornings when you can't get your kids out of bed, things just aren't getting done, and you are really FRUSTRATED... post cute pictures of your family on your blog and then look back at all the awesome comments from other people.

Thanks everyone! It was just what I needed this morning.

I got the pictures taken at Target. I think they do a great job at a reasonable price, if you can decide what you need without buying what you don't need. (I didn't do well on that part this time.)

Anyway, thanks again for the nice comments and if you post cute pictures of your family on your blogs... I promise to leave great comments for you too!

Roo is sick...again.

I'm feeling pretty good about things though, it has been almost 2 weeks since her last illness. (Note the sarcasm in my writing.) She has had a fever for the last few days so she has had quite a few baths to help bring her temperature down. This doesn't help with the dry skin, but what can you do... This morning she was so funny she just kept sticking her head right under the water.

I love the water droplets in this picture.


Craft Weekend

This weekend was our first semi annual ladies craft weekend with all the ladies in my hubby's family. We all had to bring a craft to share. I have to admit I was a little nervous about the whole affair, but my craft turned out Okay, and we had a great time. Here are some of the crafts we did...

This one was mine. The colors are really brighter, but they didn't come across in the picture. I think they are all fun. We did a few others; we made cute little earrings and stars for the 4th of July that aren't quite done yet.

Anyway, it was a great way to spend the weekend and a great big THANK YOU to my wonderful husband for helping cut all the wood for me and being such a good sport about me leaving him with the kids all weekend.

Kid's pictures

Those of you who know me know that I try to be as frugal as possible. That means when I get my kids pictures taken, I only get the cheap pictures, but I loved these so much I got the Smile Station so that I can put them on my blog and remember them that way. Hope you enjoy them almost as much as I do. The boys pictures will come in a few days.

Thank you blogging world

Today I'm grateful for the wonderful world of blogging. The reason is...it saved my daughter's life. I was on the phone, not a crazy long phone call, like 5 minutes. As soon as I answered the phone she took her graham cracker and started scraping it into the glider. I'm irritated, but I remove the graham cracker and send her on her way. I minute later I heard the water running in the bathroom and knew that it might be a problem but kept talking. "BIG mistake HUGE!" Anyway, a minute later I went into the bathroom to see what she was doing and found Walmart brand Eucerene cream EVERYWHERE! All over her hands, the sink her clothes, the basket that holds the bows, her sister, and she had completely coated her sock. Why you might ask? I'm still asking that same question. As I tried to figure the best way to clean this huge mess and thinking of all the ways I can torture my daughter, the thought entered my head. "You need to take a picture and blog this." So my daughter is now in her room and still alive and I'm destressing by typing this so I can put it on my blog. Thank you blogging world you saved my daughter from death or a fate worse than it.

Daylight Savings time.

I love it when it starts to stay lighter and lighter in the evening. It makes me happy and easier to go places at night. (Did you see the moon last night? HUGE!)

On the other hand, I HATE day light savings time in the morning. It is SOOOO hard to get my kids out of bed. So yesterday I rebelled and I just didn't. My kids slept in until 8:30 and I slept until 8:00. (I'd been up a few times, but fell back asleep.) We then got up and had blueberry pancakes and scrambled eggs, then the kids got ready for school. I got them to school at 10:00. They loved it and it was fun for me too. I told them this was a ONE time deal though. Jman thought it should happen on b-days too. Hmmm we'll have to see...

Brain Freeze

When was the last time you had the dreaded BRAIN FREEZE? For me it was a couple of hours ago.
I was sitting in Fazoli's with my cute girls having a lovely time eating pasta and bread sticks. I got a strawberry lemon ice to drink. Yummy yummy, when WHAM it hit and it hit hard. My poor girls were panicking Boo kept saying "What's wrong Mom, what's wrong," Roo started crying just staring at me, and I'm just sitting there holding my head trying not to cry. Why? Why do we have them and does any one know of a way to get them to go away faster? Please share the answer to the dreaded brain freeze...
