A couple of years ago I bought this DVD for Kaden. He watched it all the time and knew most of his letters and the sounds they make going into Pre-K. At his Pre-school graduation his teacher recommended it to the parents who's kid's were struggling with letter recognition and sounds. Kaden still likes to watch it. You can find the Leap Frog series at Target and Walmart for around $10.00.
Kaden has been struggling with number recognition so I bought the Leap Frog Math Circus. We are working on a number a week right now till he can recognize 1-10. He has no problem counting to 20 but recognizing number 6-10 has been hard for him. The 6,8,9 all look alike to him.
There are a few more Leap Frog DVD's that help with early reading skills too.

A few tips...
- I am buying more generic. Only certain generics not all are the way to go. I also have brand loyalty to certain brands.
- I follow a few blogs that have taught me a few tricks to this game.
- I buy the Dallas paper because it has better coupons in it.
This week I saved close to 50.00 on my grocery bill.
Blogs to follow.

AND THEN there are the other days when you wake up and make birthday cards for Daddy because we love him so much.
AND THEN make a video singing happy birthday.
AND THEN make a special trip to the store to buy a brownie mix and icecream for Daddy.
AND THEN cut many strips of paper to make chains because Kaden has cool ideas like that.
AND THEN cook dinner while the boys are quietly playing together and SHARING.Monday was such a nice day the boys and I shared together I loved having so many little helping hands to make a Birthday special for Tim.

7 years ago today was my wedding day. I remember spending weeks and weeks planning and only thinking about that day. I remember the first time Tim and I walked through the place we would have our wedding. I remember waking up at 6am that morning and it was storming not a good sign for a outside wedding but it ended up being a nice spring evening. It was a beautiful wedding and just like I imagined it. Before I knew it it was over and now is a beautiful distant memory. Our first year was an experience and so was our first place (another blog post in itself). I look at where we are now and how God has blessed us. I can say these seven years have shaped me into who I am today. I love you Tim and even though this day can be lost in the shuffle and business of our life I am so happy I have been blessed to spend 7 years married to you.

As you can see there is never a dull moment. I love my family.
On Tuesday while we were in Dallas we took the boys on the train downtown. Kaden loved riding on the train he just staired out the window. His favorite part was that he did not have to wear a seatbelt.
Karson was so tired he was asleep within minutes of getting into the car.
