Pictures with Santa

Why do I put so much pressure on myself for the perfect picture???

I got the kids in their Christmas clothes and off to the mall we went!
There was no one else in line to see Santa so I knew we could take our time.
Drew and Bruno were great!
Avery on the other hand kept pulling Santa's beard, puked on him and refused to smile! Who's kid is she??
Clearly she has not had the years of training that Drew and Bruno have been put through. She has so much to learn!
She just kept staring at him.It really was cute but you can only see the side of her face!
Oh well, thats why I started early.
I see several trips to visit Santa in Avery's near future!
Stay tuned for my "perfect" picture!

Thanksgiving re-cap

Way to much to write about!

Had a great Thanksgiving day.Woke up and finished all the ironing then gave myself a much needed pedicure! We packed up Bruno and Av(Drew was with his Dad) and went to Bobby's parents house for a wonderful meal. Sadly it was warm enough for Bruno to go swimming.

The real fun was on Friday morning at 3:15a.m. when we woke up to go shopping! We hit Walmart,Toys R'Us,Target and the mall all by 9am. Stopped to have a nice breakfast where our food was cold, nasty and took 30 min to get to us.But after the waitress told us it was because the cook came in drunk from his b-day party.that made everything OK!(I am not kidding you)

More highlights were:

  • Avery had sweet potatoes,and tore them up! I don't know who she gets her love of food from???
  • Christmas decorations are up! After 11 hrs of decorating on Saturday,the house is done..inside and out!(pictures will be up soon)Drew hung all the lights across the front of the house and was very proud of himself! Do child labor laws apply if they are your own kids?
  • Bobby and I had a fun adult day at the Bucs game Sunday-NO KIDS!!!! I didn't know what to do with myself! It was a great time.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday and celebrated all the you are thankful for!

1. My first wedding was canceled 3 hrs before I was to walk down the isle.My marriage license was invalid because I was 17 when we applied for it.Maybe I should of taken that as a sign???

2.I am a total metal head.I love nothing more than to rock out to Metallica.

3.I have never done a single drug,ever!

4. I met my husband online..get your laughs out now. We decided to meet at the Chuck E Cheese parking lot(I know you are laughing) and we have never been apart since that night....romantic,I know!!

5.I get embarrassed when people ask me what I do for a living.I feel like an uneducated babysitter at times instead of like a successful daycare operator. I hate that there is such a stigma on woman who choose to stay home with their this is all we can do.

6.I do not dry any of my kids clothes,I hang them up and then iron them the next day...I think I need therapy!

A few blogs ago I mentioned I wanted to start making bows and selling them.Well,I just realized it would be really nice to make some extra money for Christmas shopping.
So here I go...

Grace's Amazing Bows
(catchy name, huh?)
Please, pass on my contact info to your
friends and family who may be interested.

Bows can be attached to a clip,infant headband or to a pony tail holder. All bows are made to order least until I get organized enough to pre-make some.

Prices Below:

  • Infant headband=$7.00
  • 2 bows for Pig tail's(either on clip's or rubber band's)=$6.00
  • Single Bow=$3.00

The end!

Well 2 weeks ago football season officially ended. It has been bitter sweet. Nice that I am not spending 3 nights a week at the field for 3 hrs.Sad because the boys lost round 1 in the playoffs,half of them were crying and we had to say goodbye to everyone we got so close to in the past 14 weeks
Drew's response to the loss was,
"Can you sign me up for baseball now,Mom?"

It's 11pm Bobby and I are sitting out front talking, we see bruno's head pop out the front door

Me: Bruno,get in your bed,it's very late and we are having an adult conversation
Bruno: I like Conversation,(as he pulls up a chair)

I was stressing out today trying to get everything cleaned up after a very messy week
Bruno comes up to me with his hands out sand says,"Reeellaaxx"

Bruno was walking around in his pj's and kept scratching himself

Me: Bruno, whats wrong with your lollie, you need to leave it alone
Bruno It hurts so bad'
Me: Why does it hurt you?
Bruno Cause in my dream the monster bit it and now it hurts!

Where do they come up with this stuff????

Shortest movie ever

It's Family Fun Friday Night!
We got all ready to go see the new Bee Movie(when I say we, I mean me and the kids) So Drew,Krista,Bruno,Avery and I ventured out to Largo mall to begin our evening at 7pm. We get our tickets and pop corn then off to the pottys. I made each of them go and even threatened that if anyone asks to go during the movie I would not take them and they will just have to pee their pants.
We get into the theater,start snacking and Avery decides it's time for her to eat to. I go to make her bottle and there is no freakin formula in her diaper bag! So I get up with her and start to walk around the back to calm her down. As I was walking with her I spot this very tall blond man with a bandana on out of the corner of my eye...It was Hulk Hogan! I got the boys and we went to say hello and get pictures with him but just like the formula I had no camera! After the boys got their kicks meeting the real Hulk Hogan(is there a fake one?) We go back to our seats. 5 minutes of quiet movie bliss pass and then I hear a splash! Drew looks over at me with these huge sad brown eyes and he apologizes. No he didnt spill his $5.00 coke....He peed his pants! I didnt want to cause any bigger of a scene so I scoop up all the kids and escort them out of the movie. We get out front and Drew then reminds me of what I said before we went into the theatre about going potty. What could I do? How could I be mad,I told him not to even ask to go and he didnt.
So in all, we got to see a total of 20 min of The Bee Movie.The manager thankfully gave me 4 tickets good for any movie otherwise this would of been a story on how I wasted $36.00!
We drove home happily listening to Bruno call Drew,"Little pee in your pants girl" and Drew laughing. All I have left to say is..
Happy Family Fun Friday Night!
