Monster Truck Show!

We took the kids to a Monster Truck Show. They LOVED it! Tommy went last year with Chris. This year Katie wanted to go. So off we went!

At first she was nervous with the loud engines and wouldn't get off our laps!


Tommy got to see his ultimate FAVORITE truck! GRAVE DIGGER!


My favorite was watching the dirt bikes! They were amazing!

Of course eating the shaved ice was a favorite for Katie!

 We even got to see Uncle Mike and Caden! They were 2 sections over from us!


In the end it was a great day! I would love to again again next year if the boys let me! Katie seemed to enjoy it! It wore her right out!

Valentines Day!

With all the sickness in my house last week, I wanted to make Valentines Day special for the kids!

I decorated the table with tablecloth, glitter, candles and special plates.

I let the kids drink out of wine glasses. Man, they were THRILLED!

We all ate, the dinner planned didn't turn out so well. The kids didn't notice.....but I did!

I had a special dessert for us too!

I gave them each a little gift. I forgot to take pictures though.

Daddy came home with a rose for me, Katie and Casey. Katie loved hers because it had glitter on it!

Then Katie started taking pictures of herself! HA!

Since We Didn't Get the Flu Shot.......

Katie has the flu!

Seriously, the one year I didn't get it for them!

Sunday she had a temp of 101. Monday afternoon it shot up to 103.4. Coughing, blotchy red skin. Called the DR. They wanted to see her.

"Do you mind if I give her a Flu test? I am just seeing it come around and am not sure of all the symptoms the kids are getting."

She gets a nose swab.....5 minutes later "Yes, that came up fast! She def has the flu!"

Serves me right for not getting the Flu shot! I will never do that again!

Another Installation of "Kids Say the Funniest Things!"

They love taking my camera and taking pictures of themselves!

Katie told me today "When I grow up I want to be a Dad and a rockstar!" When I asked why she said "Because Dad's can do whatever they want and don't have babies!"

Katie : "When I grow up I want to marry Justin Beiber so I can be a mom!"

Tommy came off the bus one day (after talking to him about losing gloves and hats at school) "Mom! I didn't lose anything at school today!" The funniest part was he had his report card that he was excited to show me and not losing something was more important!

Katie cut out a picture of a person and said "I made this picture of Dad because it is kinda bald!"

Tommy "Ummm, REALLY need to start buying Oreos!"

Tommy "Mom, if I had to vote for the most beautiful girl, I would vote for you!" awwwwww

Tommy after I asked him to get his pajamas on. (In his Harry Potter English accent voice) "Mother, there appears to be no jammies over here!"

Katie to Daddy "Daddy, when I grow up I want to be a teenager and a mom!" Daddy simply said, "That is great! You just can't be them at the same time!"

Seriously, we have so much damn snow here!

We have 2 feet on the ground and getting a foot more over the next 24 hours!

I wanted to share some pics from the last 2 weeks!

This was part of a huge icicle that was on my house!
