I am SUPER excited.....

I am super excited to see my kids' face when we go and see......ready for it............

Thats right! They are going to be jumping with excitement. I love my kids so much and I am loving that they are going to have a literal blast. After the "show" we are going to the T-Rex cafe and it is going to be icing on the cake. We have this ALL set up for Sept. 19th. Pray that everything goes to plan and we wake up on time for the drive there!!

On another note, on Sept 14th, Abbie gets tubes. I am ready. Poor thing has had about 8 ear infections, 3 times we have had to do double rounds of meds and twice we have had to have a shot to get rid of it. Owen has tubes, I love it. I know when he has an infection and I give him drops. In generally, its so much easier and better for them too. So, keep us in your prayers as we go through this with my little girl. Love her!!!

Also, my hubs has ordered a 106 inch projection screen for football season, I only wish I knew SOMETHING about football to enjoy it with him. He will love it, and he totally deserves it!!!

I need assistance...........

I need advice, any advice, that anybody could give me!! Owen is, as we all know, THREE years old. I would gladly go back to the "terrible two's" any day. Everything he says has this WHINE to it, he throws temper tantrums like NO other (I am probably sure we all think that about our kids, you know, ours has to be the worst)!!! Everything he throws a fit about. I really am at the nervous breakdown point. We literally have tried everything. Time-outs, spankings (yes, we do believe in a spanking every now and then)and we have taken away toys. I hear that this will pass, but in the mean time I just need some help. Or really just words of encouragement that I am not alone in the crazy battle. As if taking two kids into the grocery store was not bad enough, now, I have one laying on the floor because he wants a 2 liter of soda and a candy bar to take home. There are some things I will not give in on. But it gets really hard when people are staring and I am telling him no. Trying to explain that I will not budge because he is not old enough to pay his own dental bill. So, all of you mothers out there, please help me. This momma will take whatever she can get. Thanks =)

Karate and walking and Madeline =)

First things first, my baby started karate last week. Yes, he is only 3. But the concept is for him to start being around more kids (since he only goes to daycare one day a week). Plus, the discepline helps too. I hope that he really enjoys it, especially since we have made a 6 month commitment.

We also have started walking at our local park. I love it because at the end of the walk I promise Owen that he can play as long as he is good and sits while I "walk it out" =) He generally does really well, and I am super proud of myself, I am on my second week! go me!! Abbie likes the swings too.....

My niece Madaline started school this last week and my sis in law sent me this picture of her first day back, she is just SO sassy!!!! Love that little girl!

I promise to come back and get on top of my blogging game =)

Precious Pictures

We have been in Sikeston enjoying time with my family. While we were there I took some pictures of my kids (Abbie and Owen) with my brothers kids (Madeline and Lainey). I fell in love with them and took over 150 total. I ordered several from snapfish yesterday, I can't wait to see them and frame them!! ENJOY =)
