Sunday Funday!

On Sunday I surprised the kids and took them to the carnival at the mall by our house. They were excited once they saw the rides.. Reagan is finally tall enough to ride the rides by herself! She is a whopping 37 inches tall. hahaha My little Peanut!

Allen wasn't sure about everything.. But he did love the cotton candy that Reagan was sneaking him..

Waiting to ride the "roller coaster." My little adrenaline junkies! Poor Dave is going to be sitting by himself when we go to Marine World or Great America..

Miss. Reagan was not too sure about the roller coaster after the first go around.. Can you tell by her face?!?

Sweet Baby Girl!

They had so much fun! Hope you all have a fabulous week!

I will be having a giveaway on April 1st, so look for that!

Date Coupons!

Since things have been so chaotic lately, I saw something called Date Coupons online a few months ago.. Last week I realized that I haven't been spreading my time with each kiddo equally. I try to alternate between D and Regs, but it always backfires.. I think Allen gets the most time since he is home with me for 3 hours when the older two are in school..

So I thought I would make some of my own "Date Coupons" for the kids.. I made seven for me and seven for Dave. Plus a Surprise one and a Blank one for each...
I tried to make them simple and not expensive. So on April 1st, I am going to print, cut and put them in envelopes. I'm then going to mix them all up and let D & Regs pick and envelope one at a time until they are gone. We will then open them up and see what they have!!

I printed a blank month calendar sheet, that way I can put our dates on that. I will also put all of them in my EC planner. Love that thing!

So here are the previews! Click on the pdf below to see the whole package!

Click here for the PDF!

Let me know how you like them! If you do use them, leave me a comment and let me know how your dates went!

Busy Mama Bee...

Holy Cow... I didn't think I had been gone for that long...

This is only my 8th entry for the month of march. Things have been so busy lately. Tee Ball, Scentsy, Dr Appts & so on..

Last week Allen started getting little bumps on him that looked almost like bug bites.. I noticed that they were popping up a lot more and even popped up in the bath. Well Friday evening I saw a huge one on his inner thigh by his diaper. It freaked me out.. I called the oncall dr and thank god it was our ped. I had an appt the next morning.

They Verdict was Hives.. Allen also has a double ear infection w/ one that has puss, gnarly cough and a hematoma on his top lip. {that's a whole nother post}

I got an email saying that DJ's pictures were being shipped!! When I saw the preview I about died! This picture is DJ to a t. His goofy smile and big ol' ears.. Btw, his right ear is folded because he kept pulling his hat down.. hahahaha

DJ is doing amazing with his writing.. We just need to get him to write in lower case before Kindy :)

My silly girl was a fabulous helper at my Scentsy Party yesterday! She had been watching those cupcakes all morning :) She was so excited that she was able to have one!

My little bunny! He thought this was the funniest thing ever..

Allen did NOT like the new seat... We decided to switch him out of the Britax and into DJ's Nautilus. He wanted his other seat back.. That was until he saw that he had a place for his bottle.. lol

Passed out after a play date :)

I finally made some of the Caramel... It was and still is pretty amazing!! I just boiled it on my stove for 4 hrs.. Super easy!

I decided that the kids, dave and myself need to spend more one on one time with each other, so I made some "Date Vouchers." I will be posting the PDF soon :) This is going to be so much fun!!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!

First Game of the Season!!

Yesterday was Opening Day for Little League!! Everyone was freezing since it was like 40 degrees w/ a windchill.. So all three kids have fevers now..

DJ's team the Giants, played the Dodgers.. {how fitting, right?} Dave was making smart ass comments when he would call, since he was working. {not going to post them here} My dad also came and video taped the whole game!

There is this one little boy on their team that throws tantrums when he doesn't get to catch the ball.. Drives me crazy! He will also run after the ball instead of running to the bases.. {he does the same thing at our practices too} So my dad said that he was having more fun video taping his tantrums than the game.. I told him to knock it off.. haha

So the deal with Tee Ball is,
- Tee Ball is 2 endings.
- Each player gets to bat.
- When you are up to bat, you hit the ball then run to first and Stop.
- You stop at each base.
- When the last player bats, all 4 players run home.. {home run!!}
- Score is not kept.
- There are no outs, strikeouts, stealing or bunting..

So are you guys ready for an overload of cuteness?!?!
{Warming Up}
{Everyone ran to the ball.. }
{Waiting for the ball to be hit..}
{Surprisingly, DJ is the 2nd shortest player on the team.. lol He is in the middle}
{Just standing around.. Him and J chatted while they were switching batters..}
{I love the way he stands.. His left hand out with his mitt ready to catch the ball and his right hand covering himself.. hahaha}
{Everyone running for the ball.. again}
{DJ up to bat.. I am one proud mama!}
{Hits the ball pretty far!! If you look at the right side of the picture, you can see the white circle.. That's the ball..}
{RUN DJ RUN!!!!!!}
{My little Sprinter!! He is super fast!!}
{Safe at 1st!}

And here is the video of DJ hitting the ball!! I would turn your volume down since I am yelling and it is shot with my phone..}

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!!
