Sign on Leah's Door...

I swear this girl is already 15.  The other day she totally back-talked to me and when I told her that was not ok, she went upstairs and slammed her door.  Right now I'm lucky I can threaten her with groundings from playing outside.  Grrr.  Anyhow, this was a sign she hung on her door a couple of weeks ago.  In case you can't read it, it says...

Parents are aloud (allowed) for free
Kid paper passes for 1 day - 6 and up are $2
If you never want to buy a $2 one, 1 year is $20 and forever living is $50
Thank you Leah

Atleast she's got a good sense of humor. 

Have a bad day - NOT!

Makes Me Giggle...

The other day I looked in the backyard where the girls were playing with the neighbor girls and I saw this hand sticking out of a box.  I started laughing out loud - what a funny sight to see in my backyard!  I don't know where they got the box, what Emma was doing in the box or what they were playing but it made me giggle.  You can see Brooke is intrigued too ...and yes, she's in here jammies (went back outside after getting ready for bed).  I think I should do a page about this - may have to do some research and find out what was the story behind "Emma in the box". ;)

Have a grrrreaaat day!

Coach Cards...

I had to quickly pull together a couple of cards for our soccer coaches.  Here's what I came up with with Monster Stew...

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hmmm, Fun Bits, Where have they been?

Busy with dance recitals, new product development, Brownie parties, hiring new employees, soccer games, soccer assessments for travel soccer next year, setting up the consumer site, starting to exercise again, getting ready for a garage sale, and the list goes on and on....

Anyhow, how about some Fun Bits for the last month?

*Eric caught Brooke hiding behind the chair yesterday eating chocolate. 
*Speaking of Brooke/chocolate - about a week ago, Brooke tried to sneak chocolate out the door after I told her she could not have it!
*Kami enjoyed her boyfriend's birthday party. ;)  Deacon's Mom called to invite Kami to the Chuck E Cheese party.  During the conversation she proceeded to tell me that Kami kissed Deacon at school ...twice!!  I was a bit shocked.  Kami's already initiating!!!  Kami and I had to have a talk about inappropriate behavior at preschool. ;)  Here's Deacon...

*I'm not going to see the girls much this summer - they LOVE playing outside!
*Speaking of outside - Brooke (reminder here-she's almost 4) keeps butting heads with the new neighbor girl (who's almost 4).  They fight over toys all the time - 2 peas in a pod!
*I had a fun visit to Iowa even though my flight out of Chicago was cancelled so I drove in a too-expensive rental car to Des Moines to get there 7 hours earlier and when I returned home the next day my luggage couldn't keep up and didn't make it home!!! 
*Lily (dog) can't stand the heat anymore...she's outside for 5 minutes and she comes in panting like she's been out there running for an hour.  It's hell to get old!
*I mentioned that Leah was joining a travel soccer team.  We're going to try it next year.  It's through a local program that does not focus on winning as much as teaching skills and teamwork.  Here's some pics from her last game...

*Seems like I have lots of pics from the last month so I'll share more this week!

Have a good one!

Fun Bits...

Crazy week again with Mega Meet, but ahhhh, I don't have a class to teach, an expo to attend or any big events until mid-July.  Woo Hoo!!!!! 

How about some fun bits for the last 2 weeks.... Fun Bits for the week of May 1st ...

*Lately Brooke has been reciting "We're not perfect, we're parents"...apparently she heard this on a TV show and keeps saying it.  It makes me laugh because it's oh, so correct!!!
*I spoke with Kami's boyfriend's Mom at preschool.  Deacon said Kami broke it off, not him.  She told him she was sorry that she was going to break his heart.  Oh my, I'm not ready for this kind of stuff!
*Kami told me I had a beard the other day...lovely.
*Brooke and I had a conversation about my boobs the other day.  She thinks that they will come out of her belly when she gets older. 
*Leah had an awesome assist at soccer the other day. 
*Eric and the girls made me a yummy breakfast for Mother's day today...homemade waffles, cinnamon rolls and bacon, yum!  They also let me hang out on the couch for most of the day catching up on my Bravo shows and I got to take a nap!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the Mom's out there and anyone that's felt the love of a Mom!

Have a great week!

Have a good one!

Fun Bits for the Week...

Fun Bits for the week of  4/18/11...

Yes, I know I haven't posted in a week.  I'm in complete chaos right designs, new website modules, new mid-show release, Easter in the middle of all of that, prep for Mega Meet, prep for upcoming classes, new product for the consumer site - shall I go on? 

Here's some fun bits for the last two weeks...

* While driving to the waterpark last Thursday, we went by downtown Columbus.  Eric asked the girls what city it was and Leah said "New York".  Mom said "I wish".  Brooke chimmed in and said "and there's the ocean".   Laughter from Mom and Dad.
* Impressively Brooke typed our house number on the calculator without prompting.
* Kams is back together with her boyfriend at preschool - thank goodness. ;)
* If you see Brooke, ask her to sing "Peace like a wiver" - you will thoroughly enjoy it.
* Leah is definitely 7 going on 15.  Bossy.  Complaining all the time.  Snaps at Mom.  Gets mad easily.
* Kami is insistent that she's getting so big, so fast.  I keep reminding her - yes, I know.
* Brooke told me I had big boobs when she saw me naked in the bathroom stall at the waterpark.  Little does she know they're 3 times smaller than they used to be!
* We enjoyed our visitors over the Easter weekend!  Ron, Kathy and the girls came down for a waterpark adventure, Easter egg hunt and Easter morning.  I have some pics to share!!!

One sweet bathing beauty.  Looking through these pics - she seems to be smiling more for me.  She was having a ball at the waterpark - I had to keep an eye on her because she was starting to be a little daredevil on the slides.

See that big black funnel in the middle - to my surprise, Leah rode down that slide with her Dad.  It's like a funnel.  She really impressed me - since she's still afraid to put her face in the water. ;)

One tired bubs sitting with Uncle Ron.

Kami had a blast too!  Slide, steps, repeat....slide, steps, repeat.

Alyssa had to sneak in some texting but Aunt Jill caught her! ;)

Brooke wasn't as concerned about the Egg hunt.  She got tired really fast and was ok with only a couple of eggs.  Good thing her sisters and cousins were there to help her find her "34" eggs.  Thanks Aunt Kathy!

The crew before the hunt.  They look happy!

Kami's on a mission!

Camille doesn't look thrilled to have Aunt Jill taking her picture while she's creatively coloring eggs.

Pretty colors.

Peeps for breakfast?  Makes a girl happy.

Purple was our color this year.

The whole gang all dressed up and ready for church! 

Have a great week everyone!
