Dress Designes By Emmy

This one is Repunzel. See the long hair :)

Emmy got a diary from the Easter Bunny. She decided yesterday she wanted to draw a dress and has been doing it non stop since. Here are a few of her designs :) She informed me this morning she plans on being a dress designer when she grows up. I love her cute and creative mind :)

Easter 2011

The Stash
Having fun Easter morning

All ready for church

Good night Jackson :)

Easter was my all time favorite holiday!!! Both kids totally understood what was going on and were beyond excited. I love holidays with my kids! We ate candy for breakfast, went to church and visited family. I love my kids and spending the holidays with them!

No Good Very Bad Day

Today SUCKED!!! My morning started at 7:45.. anything before 8:00 is not OK! Shortly after Jackson decided that today was the day to be the biggest stinker in the world! Before 11:00 am he had been in timeout a total of 4 times.

I finally got out of the house around 11:30 to get my phone fixed and meet Matt for lunch. I got to the phone store and waited for 30 minutes with 2 kids (remember Jackson was being a stinker) just to find out they did not have my phone and I would have to go to a different one and get it. I was not happy but still doing OK...

Cafe Rio is my LOVE!!! Cafe Rio can make anything better! I had been looking so forward to going to the beloved Cafe Rio... I get the kids out of the car and walk in finding a much larger the usual line :( I did not have the time or patience for this stupid Cafe Rio line so I left and got a hamburger (that would explain my larger the usual ass). I then dropped Matt back off at work and headed to get my phone fixed.

Do you ever see a mom that looks like an idiot and has no idea what she is doing? Well that was me today. Emmy was pushing Jackson in the stroller, somehow it tipped causing Jackson's mouth to bleed. It took much longer then I had hoped to get the phone set up and I felt so bad that my poor kids had endured this day with me... Needless to say we were exhausted when we got home.

Adding to the day my eye has been twitching all of it. I am convinced that I am having a seizure and that my face is going to be 1/2 paralyzed but Matt did not think that was a good enough reason to come home.

I am ending the day watching Sex and The City, eating a carton of ice cream (again adding to my larger then usual ass) and blogging. Happy Monday!

I am sorry to complain but Today was a no good very bad day! I am ready for my husband to be home. I am sick of being outside at 6pm and watching all the dad's come home. It really pisses me off and I have a desire deep inside of me to flip each of them off. I am hoping this last week of not having my husband around goes by fast! I love my sweet family even if I want to scream sometimes. Lets hope tomorrow goes a little better!!!

18 Month Pictures

I got Jacksons 18 month pictures taken. He was such a nightmare and I left thinking we didn't get 1 good shot. I was wrong. I love that the pictures capture exactly who he is. I love this little boy so much and could not imagine out little family without him! I love you my sweet Jackson!

Easter Pictures

Here are a few of the Easter Pictures we got taken. I love my sweet kids!

I miss going to sleep with him, I miss him playing with the kids, I miss watching our shows together at night, I miss his help with the kids, I miss everything about him! Here is hoping the next 2 weeks go by fast!

I Just Bought This!!!

I ordered this today for Emmy's bed. I LOVE IT!!!

New Swing Set!!!

Emmy playing on the swing set right when she woke up :)
About a month ago I finally found a swing set worth buying. When we bought it it looked a little beat up but I thought I could make it over. Finally this week was nice enough to work outside. After 2 hours of sanding, 8 hours of staining and a few new trinkets to attach here is the finished product! The kids LOVE it and have spent every spare moment in our backyard on the swing set and trampoline. I look forward to years of watching my kids play on this!

Chair Makeover

Before ( I know SO GROSS!!! It is impossible to keep cream chairs clean with 2 messy kids) After

I have hated my dining room chairs since we got them!!! A few months ago I found some fabric that was cheap and decided to redo the chairs. I finally found a little time and it only cost me $2 a chair! I think it totally matches my house and am happy with the end result!

Sorry if this offends anyone but i had to do it.
Off to see The Lion King!
The Lion King was SO GOOD!!!
Visiting the MGM lions :)
$1.00 gambled...$1.00 lost :(
We had SO much fun!!! We got to ride the NY NY roller coaster right before this and lost our voices from screaming so loud :)
Welcome home to me :)
I took a little girls trip to Vegas last weekend. It was SO FUN!!! I missed my family but it was a much needed getaway. We had fun shopping, eating, more shopping, seeing the Lion King (SO GOOD) walking the strip, talking and laughing. I am so glad I was able to go and am so grateful for my wonderful friends!!!

Big thanks to my sweet husband who watched the kids, cleaned the house (bathrooms and floors included), got the car oil changed, took the kids swimming and so much more. Isn't he awesome!!!
