Happy Birthday My Little Princess

Today is my sweet daughters 2nd Birthday! The years, have just gone by much too fast! I remember the day she was born at 35 weeks, she only weighted 5lbs 5oz! She was tiny, but gorgeous! All the nurses and doctors loved her! Now she is a chatter box, who love princesses, Dora & boots, anything pink, books, counting, her ABC's and tons more! She loves to play with her big brother, and adores her cousins! Time goes by so fast, its so wonderful that we have cameras to capture the beautiful moments of our lives!
Happy Birthday Princess, my God bless you all the days of your life!

Growing Pains!

We're pregnant!

Thrilled and happy to be parents all over again! We are praying for a healthy bundle of joy! My due date is Nov 24, 2009. Although I am hoping to go sooner! I haven't carried a baby past 37 weeks, so I'm guessing this one wont be over due either.

Suggestions anyone???

I'm sure we all have had this problem, well maybe not all of us, some of us! Let me explain!

Go back to 3 years ago, we were so excited to move into our new home, have new neighbors, new parks, new everything right? Wrong... Seems like when we got around to meet our neighbors, they were either on the way into their homes, or just too busy to smile and wave.

It's ridiculous! We finally met our immediate neighbor to the right which worked out great, but have yet to meet anyone else! Maybe I'm just not approachable? Who knows, but if your reading this and have a neighbor you have yet to meet, please at the least, smile and wave, maybe even run over for a quick chat!

I will try my hardest this summer to get to know some of my neighbors, and will keep you updated!

Our Weekend Outting!

Sure, the Saturday we pick to go to the Wild Animal Park was the Hottest day of the year! I can't began to tell you how many drinks we had to buy to beat the heat! By the end of the day the $12.95 +tax Souvenir cup with free refills, didn't look like a bad choice.

Even though we had the heatwave, I do have to admit, we had a wonderful day and so did the kids! We did have some complaining here and there about the walking portion of it, and about the 50 million birds we seen and hardly no animals and where were all the tigers, and why was there so many people and on and on...

Just want to share a couple family pictures of our adventure, Enjoy!

New to ME!

Well fellow bloggers the CL bug has hit again! I sort of addicted to chairs, and keep looking for the perfect pair. Now they don't have to be new or in perfect condition, since I can probably get them refurbished and reupholstered. So I was on CL a few weeks ago and found a post for a pair of dark wood french chairs for 15 bux! I felt there could have been a typo or maybe she was a fraud, so I emailed. The next day I went on the journey to pick them up. I guess the poor woman didn't know where she lived, because when I finally arrived at her home, it wasn't in the city, which she told me on the phone. The chairs need some elbow grease and definitely new material, but for 15 dollars what do you expect!

Carters Dinosaur Room, ROAR!

I recently decided to change my growing 3 year old's "Nursery" painted toddler bedroom, and give him a big boy bedroom with his choice of theme. He, after many days of going back and forth from Star Wars, to Batman, he finally decided on a Dinosaur Inspired room.

I've included a couple of pictures of his new room, please keep in mind that I have not had a chance to complete my check list, like the mural, drapes or the hanging of various items. I chose earthy tones with a bright orange for a little kick. I am really happy with the way it turned out.

Attached to Carters big boy room is his own bathroom, so Ive also included a picture of him brushing his teeth!!!

Mine at Easter!

Easter is a beautiful time of year! The smell of Spring is in the air, the gorgeous sunny warm weather, and the kids all dressed up for Easter!!!

When we were kids we'd get all decked out (thanks Mom) lacy gloves, new dresses, hats w\hat pins, new watches, shoes with matching purses, you name it we wore it! I hope to keep that same tradition in my family.

There is nothing like arriving at church with a new outfit, smelling good, full of the confidence of that like on a first day of school! I remember when we wore sponge rollers in our hair all night, and when we'd wake up, there were sore parts on our head!!! Pain means beauty, I just thank God for hot rollers, and curling irons!

This year was a little different, Easter started a week early!!! Don't laugh this is a true story, shows how busy we are in life and how using my IPhone calendar is non-existent!

Saturday nights its usually the time when I get my kids clothes ready for church the next morning. Picking them out usually only takes a few minutes, then comes the ironing, and then the accessories. So for some odd reason I thought Easter was a week earlier! SOOOO, to make a long story short my kids wore their Easter clothes, the Sunday before Easter!!!

Would you believe the horror I felt, and nothing was said about it being Easter!!! Laugh, go ahead!!! So I finally googled Easter 2009, and wow, it WAS the following Sunday!!!
Shame on me!!! =0(

So the following Sunday I did what any mother would have done, pulled the new clothes from the back of the closet that were always my "Just in Case!" Carter had a new shirt, tie, and slacks, and Katie had a new dress. It all worked out fine, I just thank God for making the real Easter not about the clothes, bunny's and egg hunts!
Please forgive me on the weeks that have gone by, and me finally posting about Easter!!!

Here are a couple cute pics of my cuties!!!
