Easter Eggs

Last week we decided to stay in our pajamas all day, and dye Easter eggs that night.

We are cool like that.

Be back soon with my Easter post!

This girl cracks me up!
We laugh ALL of the time at the stuff she says.
This morning our conversation went like this....
Me-What do you think the Easter Bunny is going to bring you
Abbie-A fishing pole!
Me-Do you want to fish?
Abbie-Yes, I catch a big fish, chop its head off, throw it on the fire and eat him!
Me-Looking at my husband, wondering what kind of conversations he is having with her, he just smiles!!

The Tollison Trio visit

My cousin, her husband and daughter came up for a visit.
They come every year about this time and we have a great time.
We visit, shop, visit and shop, (rinse and repeat again)
We took them to a pizza place that the hubs and I stumbled upon that has THE BEST PIZZA. On top of the best pizza they also have a kids station set up to make their own dessert pizza and they bake it while you eat. The kids rolled out their own dough, cut it into shapes, sprinkled it with cinnamon and sugar and it was served with icing. So yummy and such a good idea for kids.
Here are the pictures of the visit.

Long time, no blog.

I'm a totally blogging loser......
Sue me!
I haven't blogged in months..........OK, a lot of months. (But who's counting)

I have so much to catch up on, but I'm going to start by saying life is great!
My kids are great!
My marriage is great!
My life is great!
I am totally blessed.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas, good New Year and good Valentines Day.
We sure did ;)

Here is Owen and his new guinea pig Raphael (from the Ninja Turtles (we are obsessed))

Me and my hubs! He is growing his beard out, something to do with hunting, I pretend to care.

My O-Dub! Love him....

The husbands birthday cake....

Sick, everyone but ME

M household is sick which is going to put a huge damper in our Thanksgiving plans! BOO!!

Owen has influenza B and I'm sitting in the waiting room with Abbie cause I'm thinking she has it too.

For those of you that don't know Abbie's history, she just turned three and has already had to week long hospital stays due to being sick and having asthma.

As a momma, there is nothing worse than sick babies, my heart breaks for them.

And, on the way home I have to drive thru to get my husbands medicine. Urgh! I have to dope up on vitamin C!!!

Abbie at the doc refusing to take off her kitty cat hat! (No, it's not a cat, it's an owl) try telling her that!!

Owen on Sunday waiting to be seen!

Yes, I have to keep my sanity so I wrote everything in my notes! Please tell me that I'm not the only one

And my new rain boots!

It has been a long time coming....

Abbie is starting preschool. Say what?

Two....just two days a week, and I'm an emotional wreck.

She needs this, and I need this. But am I ready for this?

I think its harder knowing that I can't have any more children, I want to enjoy this time, every second with her.

I love watching her grow and learn new things, but honestly, I don't love her attitude. I try to discipline, but, for anyone that knows Abbie, knows that Abbie is her own person. I just keep reminding myself that one day I will be thankful that she is her own individual self. Until then, I will be sad that she is leaving me two days a week.

But I am so excited that I will have ALL DAY Thursdays to just me. And I can use that day to do whatever I want.

For those of you that don't know, I watch my friends little girl three days a week. She is precious and funny and developing her personality. I remember when my kids were her age. I like knowing that she doesn't have to take her child somewhere else and I literally live across the pasture from her. Its perfect for everyone.

Back to Abbie....she doesn't nap, never really has, this will be a wake up call for her and I am praying that the teachers can handle her attitude.

Catch up on Owen.

He had his school pictures coming up and I ordered the biggest package, along with the retouch and his name on the wallets. Why wouldn't I? Really, its his first year in school and we have to send his pictures to everyone to look at;)

He went to school that day, adorable! Even had daddy fix his hair, came home, looking cute still.

Got his pictures back this week and WHAT????? what happened to the adorable sweater from gymboree I bought that would bring out his eyes in his pictures??????

He took it off and wore just his white Hanes T-shirt!!! In his pictures!! I was laughing hysterically cause I just couldn't be mad, or could I? I mean the pictures were $50 and I'm sure the sweater wasn't very cheap. Good things he's cute!!

So I called my grandma and told her "grandma, I could just beat him, he is wearing a white tshirt".....Joking of course, I'm not going to beat my child ever, let alone for his pictures. Later we were leaving and he opened my car door and the conversation went like this...

"here momma"

"Thanks Owen, that was sweet of you, I like you opening my door"

"You're welcome, I want you to be happy"

"Owen, I am happy"

"I don't want you mad"

"I'm not, promise"

"Then why did you tell great grandma you were going to beat me?"

Now, I died laughing, poor boy, he was really listening to our conversation. I had to explain that it was a figure of speech that I loved him and would never hurt him.

I love the 5 year olds imagination.

He also got a good report at his first parent teacher conference. He is one of only two kids in his class that can recognize all his upper case and lower case letters. And the only kid she has ever had that can say his alphabet backwards.Which he radomly does. Smart cookie!! Takes after his mama ;))))
