Park fun!

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

The kids & I went to the park after school on Monday. We had a blast! I like to take the kids to the park in Spring. After the hot weather settles in, it sucks. LOL! I did manage to get some cute pics. Bentlee goes nuts for the slides! I have never heard a little girl giggle & squeal so much. My two do great with her too. They will make good babysitters. :) I love how the kids get 'static' hair when coming down the slide. It's such a crack up! LOL! I will be having lots of park pics over the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned! :P


A Couple of Dorks!

Monday, April 28, 2008

Dinner & a movie. That's what I did Friday night! I had a blast! Addie & I went to Red Robin for chicken salads, and then headed off to see 'Baby Mama'. We laughed all night! We have both decided that we are going to make this a regular thing. No one laughs at my jokes like Addie! I swear my stomach muscles hurt by the time I get home! While we were at the movies, Addie spotted a photo booth. Of course we had to try it! People probably thought we were ridiculous from all the hysterical giggles! :D Here is the end result.....no laughing!! LOL!!


~New Internet & More~

Thursday, April 24, 2008

Hello! I got hooked up to my new internet today! Woo! I had DSL, and I switched to a cable modem. Boy is it faster! LOL! We are shutting off our phone, and it was cheaper to go with Charter for the hookup. I am glad I did though. Why on earth is DSL 3 times more expensive when it is 3 times slower?? Makes no sense to me! LOL! I like that my new modem is wireless too. Now I can go anywhere in the house. I usually don't, but at least I have the option. :)

The sun is coming out, which makes me smile again. Bring on the hot! We need to seriously get busy on our pool. It's soooo disgusting right now. Yuck! Ashley asked me this morning if I thought there were fish in there. LOL! You know its bad when it looks like a pond! The kiddos have so much fun swimming, I can't wait. I really think that was the best money I have spent in a long time. They really love it, and think of all that exercise they get! I am pretty excited that Bentlee will be old enough to play this year. We need to start picking out her little suit! Awww!

Before I post my pics for today, I just wanted to say something. My family & I have been really blessed by the lord, and I just wanted to publicly be grateful for that. I feel it's important to let the world know about how God is there for you. When you are given blessings, it's important to share those. I want to thank God for both of my beautiful children who are both miracles in their own way. I have a body that wasn't meant to have children, and God saw to it that I had 2 healthy kids. I want to thank God that Ted & I both have great jobs in this time of recession. I want to thank God that I have an amazing marriage to an amazing man. Ask anyone who knew us 12-13 years ago....we may not have made it if not for him. I could go on and on, but basically I just want to thank God for loving me through good times & bad. I pray that each and every one of you reading this is blessed with a relationship with him. If not, then I pray that you will very soon. :)

On to the pics for all the Grandmas & Aunts & Uncles & Cousins & so on! LOL!! This pictures aren't new ones. When I was looking through all my old picture folders, I came across some good ones! Here is one of each of us that just made me smile. :D

Here is one of Ash that makes me smile so hard my face hurts:

This one is classic Dylan...always the clown in the room! (worm sticker for booger) LOL!!!

This is a self portrait of Ted & I. I love his concentrated look, while I am smiling like a big goober waiting. LOL!


~All Done!~

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Yay! I am done! :D If you see some funkiness going on...don't worry, it's probably just me. LOL! I am making a few layouts so that I have them done for later. I have a tendency to want to change it up every week, and this way its always my own creation. No downloaded layouts for me! Thanks for your patience. :)



Don't look at the blog for the next 30 minutes. I am figuring out a layout for later down the road. I have to do some of it 'live' on the blog. Everything will be back within 30 minutes. Thanks! :)


~I hate this weather!~

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Hmmphf! I am so tired of cold weather! It's the end of April! Where is our sunshine?? A couple of weeks ago the kiddos were playing in the sprinkler. Now, we have been getting snow!! What the heck?!? Cold weather can get really depressing. I get depressed by it anyway. I have been resorting to looking through my old photo/movie folders for last summer pics! LOL! I can't wait to get the pool going again! Woo! Just looking at the hot weather makes me smile! On a side note, I can't believe how much my kids have aged! They just seem to be growing up so fast. I miss them when they were babies. Older kids have their own awesome qualities, but sometimes you just want babies for a day. LOL! I have really been missing my dog too. Seeing all the pics of last summer with him make me sad. I hope wherever Mr. Pickles is, he is happy and taken care of. :( He really was a sweet dog. Some days I want to run and get another one so badly...and other days I realize the foolishness in that. I think I will just go visit Addie & Miles. He is such a sweet doggy too. His little smile makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Yes...he does too smile! :)

I think that's about it for this morning. Oh wait! I got a Bluetooth! Woo! I am high tech now! LOL. I do love it. It's so nice to be 'hands free'. You do feel a little crazy though. It's like you are just standing around talking to yourself. LOL! I am going to leave you with 2 of my favorite movies from last summer. One of each kiddo! :)


~Lost Easter Pics!~

Thursday, April 17, 2008

Hello! I am finally getting around to posting my Easter pics! LOL! I know, I know...terrible blogger! These are just some simple snap shots I took of the day & night before. Enjoy!

Here are the kids doing their eggs:

Hello! I hope everyone is doing great & staying healthy. We have been feeling a LOT better! On Sunday we decided to make a trip to Newport. We didn't make it to the Aquarium though. We were able to hit the Ripley's Believe It or Not museum, Wax Works, & Undersea Gardens. It was sooo much fun! I didn't realise what big chickens my kids were though! LOL! It was quite amusing how much wax can freak a kid out. LOL! It was a great day. No one fought, no one whined, no arguing.....it was just happiness all around. We need more days like that. It feels good. I managed to get some pictures. I didn't get too many inside the museums. It was just so dark in there. It was hard to pick the best ones to show off. LOL! I had a good lot to choose from. I think I got the best though. :)

Kids with wax elephant:

Dylan with Darth Maul (super exciting LOL):

Ash with the other Star Wars dudes:

Dylan at the tide pool:

Ash at tide pool (it took a lot for her to do that LOL):

The gross looking octopus that the kids just loved:

Ashley getting hooked by the pirate:

Ashley & I at lunch:

That's it for Newport! We really did have a great time, and I can't wait to go back! This weekend the kids and I have a date with Addie, Gabe, & the Wii! We are so excited! I would like to catch the opening night of the Auto Races too. That is always fun! We haven't been in a few years. Ashley was just too little to enjoy it. Not any more! I know I haven't put up the Easter pics yet. Oh! I also have those pics from Bandon! *DOH* I will do those next, promise! :D Have a great rest of your Thursday! :)


~A new boy!!~

Wednesday, April 2, 2008

Well, Dylan finally cut all his blond hair off! I love it! He looks so much like his dad! I just can't believe how dark it was underneath. With the way Dylan's hair grows, it will be long again before summer. LOL! Here are some pics we took today. :)

I still have some pics I took at Easter, & some from the day we had at Bandon. Hopefully I will get those up in the next day or so. Have a great Thursday! :D

(sorry to those that thought this was coming yesterday...Blogger would not allow me to upload the photos...very frustrating!!)
