Worlds Of Fantasy ...

One of the presents the kids got from my parents this year for Christmas was tickets to Disney On Ice, Worlds Of Fantasy! Cars, Lion King, Little Mermaid, & Tinkerbell were all apart of the big show! We go every year [my sis & I even went as kids]! Damon LOVED-LOVED the show. He was cheering and woo-who'ing the whole time!

Here he is in action ... woo-who'ing! =)

Because ...

The show is starting [Goofy's car is breaking down] Oh - no!!
The boys were WAY excited about Cars ... it's Tow Mater to the rescue!
Justin clapping! He also waved to every single character that came out! =)
Hakuna Matata [they sang that later on] ... it's Simba, Nola, & Rafiki
Now on to Tink ... Allie's favorite part
Spring has sprung in Pixie Hollow ... I loved this part
The confetti is falling and all of the characters are dancing together ... must be time to go!

Disney never disappoints! Their shows are always phenomenal! The costumes are awesome and the attention to every single detail is amazing! The best part is that we didn't have to travel far to see them! They were only about 25 miles away vs. over 60 miles that we have traveled before! Woot! =)

Valentine's Picnic

Enjoying some super spring like weather this weekend. It's been in the upper 60's, low 70's, & beautiful out! Decided to lay low this weekend and chillax! Yesterday the kiddos and I helped Miss Emme celebrate her 3rd birthday @ Go Bananas and from there we headed over to the park! Thought I would let the kids completely tire themselves out run around and have some more fun!

Mmmm, mmm, good
Park fun
Blowin' bubbles
He looks waay too grown up here

Happy ♥ Day!!
The love bugs and I took a walk down to the park [different then the one we visited yesterday] and we had a picnic for a nice Valentine's afternoon!

Good thing I have tomorrow off too, so I can actually get somethings down around the house! The laundry is calling my name, blah! I've been trying to ignore it, but it's not working out so well!

Hope everyone had a nice weekend and a Happy Valentine's Day! XoXo

2010 ... a lil late

I sent my laptop in to get my keyboard repaired while it's still under warranty. One of my children [*cough*, *cough*, Kailee] may have knocked some of her juice onto my keyboard therefore the important letters were all sticking. BTW, HP has awesome customer service. This is the 2nd time I've needed repair because one of my other children [*cough* Justin] dropped a book on my keyboard the last time. Anyways, they've been great each time! So needless to say while it was out for repair my pixs were gone too.

Here's a few from us bringing in the new year! Usually Ray and I have a party, but I wasn't in big party mode this year. We let the girls have their friends over instead, so they had a slumber party!

Allie & Lynae
They are crazy
Party time
Tay-Tay & Kai-Kai
Man, he LOVED the blowers
The girlies minus Meya
What's a NYE party w/out LOTS of junk food?!

Pretty girl!

Where a kid can be a kid ...

We finally have a bed time routine! Woot! I've never been a crazy-scheduled-my-kids-have-to-this-and-that-at-a-specific-time-kinda-Mom. It's always just worked for us. Of course Allie has had to go to bed by 8:30 this past year because she has to get up for school in the a.m. Justin has always told us when he's ready for bed [which is usually between 8:30 & 9:30]. Damon has always gone to bed when we go to bed, very bad habit. It was time for Damon to sleep in his own bed [like two years ago] lOl! So, at 8:15 we head upstairs, brush their teeth, read a story, and lights out. If they are cooperative they get a sticker [which has been every night so far] on their chart. Once they have five stickers they get a treat. Could be a slumber party in Mommy & Daddy's room, special snack, or toy, etc. They all had five stickers, so this treat was a trip to Chuck E. Cheese [probably should've started with something smaller]!

Caught ya
He must have done the slide 500 bazillion times

Not tall enough to reach the pedals, so it became Mommy's job!
.Dork #1.
.Dork #2.
& .Dork #3.
Finally sliding down on his bum ... look @ his crazy static hair
"I did it, Mommy ... I won"

I must say, I'm loving this crazy-scheduled-my-kids-are-all-asleep-at-the-same-time-kinda-schedule!! Hubs and I actually have time to ourselves at night! Plus, there are no interruptions during Modern Family! ;)
