Egg Hunt

AWSOME is the word to explain it. The Egg Hunt was a success. I want to say I am so proud of my husband Tim. He worked so hard to see this happen.

Today I took it easy. I did some house work this morning and tried to get Kaden to clean his room.

Kaden has been a little tired this week. He put himself down for a nap at 11:30am. His usual nap time is 1:00pm.

During Kaden's nap time I boiled 3 dozen eggs and set up the back porch to color eggs. I busted 10 eggs and 4 came up missing before we even started.

Kaden loved coloring the eggs. He would drop the eggs in the color cup and take them out right away. So most of them came out a dull shade of white, but he was so proud.

When we were done we had a egg hunt.

Kidstation and the Circus

So yesterday we went to Kidstation. Kaden had so much fun.

For the first time he just took off and played and played he didn't even want to leave. He even got his face painted. He asked for a red car but had to settle for a basketball.

He was so tired when we got home, he was so tired and went to sleep in my lap at 6:30pm

Earlier this week I got some circus coupons in the mail. I thought it would be fun to go.

I thought it would be a little circus and not a big deal. Well I have to say... I WAS WRONG

We got there 15 minutes early.. We didn't make it to the first show.

We went and got some dinner and made it to the second show. Kaden and Karson loved it...

We were 3-4 feet from where all the entertainers came out. We had good seats.

It's 11:30pm I'm tired and going to bed... Spring Break video to come.....

2 Day

As of 6:00am this morning it had been 24 hours since Kaden was sick last. He slept through the night and was in a good mood this morning. So I decided to get the boy's and my brother Nathan out for a walk and pass out flyer's for the egg hunt Saturday.

We passed out close to 70 flyer's. Well I mean I walked and Nathan did most of it. He is so much help and never complains. Karson slept through the whole thing and Kaden helped with a few houses.

About half way through the trip Kaden started getting grumpy. That's when I realized he wasn't a 100% yet. By the time we got home he was almost in tears and wanted his cupee (cup). The cupee request usually means he's tired. He has been asleep for 4 hours.

OK I know I may be too old or Mommy's shouldn't do it. But I have a confession....


My brother Nathan brought it with him for the week. I am trying to play on the Medium level but I have the easy level down.

Last Night

At 2am we were awakened by an unfamilier sound. Kaden crying.

When I went into his room.....
The site I saw was my little Kaden covered in sickness and also everything in his bed. When I finally calmed him down and cleaned him up I think it was about 3am. I was tired and didn't want him to be alone so I layed down with him.

After changing sheets, starting the washer and changing Kaden two more times it was 6am. Karson woke up to eat at about 6:15am.

I got a little nap this morning with my boys. Kaden did much better through the day so I don't think he has the flu...

I got my hair done yesterday and I like it. Color and all. Tim watched the boys for a few hours so I could go. He blogged about it. Check it out....

I also picked up my little brother yesterday he is staying with us for the week. Kaden looks up to him and no one else exists when he is around. Some things I have planned for the week.

Picnic at Kidsview park
Passing out flyer's for the Egg Hunt in our neighborhood
Making cookies for the neighbors
The Circus

I'm looking forward to it.

2 Day 3/10/08

Today with some planning I got out and went to the mall with my boys. I have to say they were both good.
Before today I haven't really gone anywhere with the boys by myself except the grocery store and the occasional trip to Target.

The planning started this morning when I got the double stroller out for the first time. The reason is because Karson was too floppy up to now to use it.

My mission today was to find myself a easter outfit and shoes... Mission Accompished

Here it is...

Girl Scout Cookies

It is that time of year for my two favorite fund raisers. The savings card thing for restaurants and Girl Scout Cookies . When my door bell rings on a Saturday afternoon I always check this time of year.

I put in my order over a month ago and have been waiting. The cookies came in today. My family favorites are Samoas and Tagalongs.

I am looking forward to this week. I am getting my hair done, nails done, and get to go to the repeats are neat sale.

Last time I got my hair done I was in a bad hair pregnancy. So I am looking forward to what Sherri at Salon Pink can do with this mess on my head.

Saturday 3/8/08

It is almost 3:00pm both boys are napping and Tim is in Dallas for the day.. What am I doing with this short moment of quietness. Blogging and listening to golf. Golf? I cant change the channel because its being recorded.

Last night I went to my scrap booking connection group. It was fun and I got a little bit of work done. I'm excited about going again next month.


I was talking to my 3 year old this morning about making a chart for his potty habits. I said if you fill up this chart you can go anywhere you want to go. He thought about it and said "Red Lobster". My son's favorite places to go are Applebee's, Olive Garden, and Red Lobster.

What happened to McDonald's????

2DAY.... 3/6/2008

Tonight I was thinking we have come along way with something. Kaden loves to bring alot of toys in the family room during the day and had a hard time understanding that at night before bed that he needs to clean up all his toys. We have come up with a new game and it seems to be working. We tell him its time to clean up. He gets his big dump trunk and fills it up and takes it to his room.

On friday night I am going to a scrapbooking connection group. I am so excited about this. I have collected alot of stuff over the past year and started getting it all organized and put together for friday. First I organized it all in my new craft closet and then put everyhing I am taking in a suitcase ready to go. The suitcase will work well till I can get something better.

Karson is 3 months old today. It has gone by way to fast. He is a very good baby and goes with the flow. Look how cute he is.

Number 2

I know what you are thinking and I'm not talking about that number 2. I want to share number 2 on my 2008 list.

Number 2. Stay calm till you access the situation.

Example: When Kaden says something like "Mommy come see. I got all the play dough out behind the couch".

This one happened yesterday I got on his level (thank you Suppernanny) and we walked over together. I am so glad I did this because he had just stacked the containers and wanted to show me his tower. To my surprise there wasn't all the colors of the rainbow play dough smashed into my carpet.

2008 LIST

I am a list person. I have a couple of lists going all the time. The main list is things that need to be done in general and the other is the things that need to be done that day. But for the first time I am making a year list. You may call it New Years resolutions but its a little late to call it that. I have had it in my head for over two months but haven't yet put it in writing till tonight.

I worked on one today.

Number 14. Get Karson to sleep in his own bed.

He does not like his bed one bit. This does not mean he is not a great sleeper, he takes two good naps a day and has been sleeping through the night for over a month now. Just not in his bed. So when he was ready for his morning nap I rocked him to sleep and layed him in his bed. His eyes popped open wide and then the lip came out and he started crying. So I had a plan. It doesn't take him long to go back to sleep. I will just keep rocking him to sleep and lay him down and he will eventually be so tired he will take a nap in the bed. Let me just say I didn't get to check this one off the list today.
