Oh, I have so much to talk about, but I won't bore anyone!
We went to a bookstore afterward and just browsed. Along with a hot pumpkin spice latte, mmmmm.
This morning, we woke and just drove around town. We went to see Fireproof! It was AWESOME! I think every couple in the world should see this movie! Kirk Cameron did an awesome job.
I hope everyone else had a great weekend! Tomorrow, I plan on doing some major cabinet organization in the kitchen.
Also, I started CVSing today!!!! Most of you know what I am talking about. I still can't believe the savings I got today! Wow, I have over $17 in extra care bucks now! I was so thrilled to see that LONG receipt print out!
For my mom!:

I have lost all respect today for someone I thought was honest, and a Godly man. Yes, I know, most of you thought Clay Aiken was gay, but I gave him the benefit of the doubt. He said he wasn't. He wrote a book about his love for God. When he impregnated James Foster I lost respect for him. Now, he has come out that he is gay. I am not at all mad about that. I am mad that he portrayed himself as someone he wasn't. This is very disappointing. I will no longer support a man who lied to become famous. If he would have been himself, who knows if I would have liked him. But the whole thing is disappointing.

Lately, the kids have been arguing more than ever. They like to scream over each other and they fight over toys. I knew this would happen, but wow, is it tiring for me. At first, I thought we would stay home to avoid crowds during this time. But, that is just driving me nuts, so we have been going out!
Monday, I took the kids to the Greenwood Mall and we had a blast. Cassidy used the potty 3 times (I think she just likes to try out potties!), no one argued, I got to window shop! We had a good time. They also have a nice play area. We spent all day in Greenwood.
Tuesday, I decided to head North. That is why I love where we live now. Only 15 minutes each way and there are major shopping areas. We went to Castleton. I decided to make it a "thrifty" day. We stopped at the Dollar Tree and two different Goodwill's. The kids got vanilla Frosties and then, we headed to Aldi's. It was a fun day. Although, the kids did whine a bit.
Today, the kids got to play at the local gymnastics facility. They love it there. We met some other kids and I stood around talking to another mom for awhile. On our way home, they said they were tired! What???? Did I really hear them right? I can't believe it. So, now, Cassidy is napping and Jaden is laying on the couch. We just finished school and now it is ME time. I will probably use it to clean the house. :(

Yep, those are just a few of the things going on right now. I made an order of cupcakes today, went grocery shopping, and cleaned wet sheets, pants, and carseats today. Yes, wet with pee. Ugh. Cassidy must have had too much to drink today. She peed all day! I will have to watch her a little more closely. She is no longer wearing diapers and has stayed dry every night! We are very proud of her. Grocery shopping is becoming harder. Jaden is so hyper and running around. Cassidy screams at the top of her lungs! And, oh yes, Jaden eggs her on. UGH! I might have to do grocery shopping when Jeff can watch the kids from now on. I can't even concentrate on what I am getting when they are with me.

We had a great time yesterday. It felt so good to go back to our regular church. I just wish we could find one in Indianapolis that makes us feel as comfortable. Sometimes, I think we are being too picky, but there are just some things that make us feel more comfortable. Some of the things we enjoy at our current church are:
1. Pastor Scot (I learn something every time I listen to Scot and I truly believe God is working through him in amazing ways!)
2. Worship time (We love the contemporary feel of worship and feel that we should be singing to the Lord and not just for fun.)
3. Communion (We have found several churches who use intinction, short communion time, no time for praying during communion)
4. Community (There are several ways to get involved)
5. Children's Ministry (Wow, we just love this part! Jaden learns something new everytime, there are outside activities, he has learned how to pray there, worship time)
We have prayed about finding a new church and we have also been to several. The last one we visited we felt somewhat comfortable. We could definitely go back, but I still didn't feel like it was where we should be. Will I feel this? I just thought I would walk in and know I belong.
We went to my parent's house for my mom's birthday and my sister in law's birthday. We had a great time. Here are the cupcakes I made for her:
My sister in law had gastric bypass surgery awhile back and cannot eat cake, so this is what my mom made her! LOL
I have a few good pictures of my mom, but she would kill me if I posted pictures! She does not like to get her picture taken. But, I was so happy to get one of her and Jaden laughing together!
I hope everyone has a great week!

Jaden started soccer today. We have been looking forward to this since we moved to Indy! Of course, Jaden started off the day saying he didn't want to go play soccer. And, for the first half, he sat on the bench. After he talked with Jeff, he decided to go out (for fear he would sit in his room the rest of the day, lol). He had a great time once he got out there. The coach seemed awesome and there were so many kids! Everything is well organized and Jaden got a cool jersey to wear.
Cassidy wanted to play too:
Yesterday and today were major cupcake baking days. I had an order to make and my mom's birthday cupcakes. The order was for chocolate cupcakes and lemon cupcakes. My mom's are Spiced Pecan with a whipped caramel filling and a White Chocolate cream cheese icing.
Tomorrow we will be heading to Terre Haute. I am ready to start a new week. It seems like we have been so busy lately and the housecleaning keeps getting pushed back.
Have a good Sunday and don't forget to go to church!

I can't believe it! Cassidy has stayed dry for several days now! She is in panties all day and during naptime. (I am sure she will wake up wet now that I have mentioned it!). I even went to the store and she stayed dry in her panties! What a happy day! I am almost done with diapers! Yay! What a good feeling.
I have several cupcakes to make for this weekend and Jaden starts Soccer on Saturday. We are very excited about that. We are heading to Terre Haute Sunday to celebrate my sister-in-law's birthday and my mom's birthday. We will be going to church after that.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Wow, I am getting sucked into politics this year. It makes me sick to my stomach when I see some of the things that are being said on both sides! Let's hear the policies and not the attacks.

Wow, Jaden is FIVE!!! The time has flown by! He had a wonderful birthday yesterday. After church Sunday, we went to Walmart and Jaden got the new Laurie Berkner Band Cd. Both of the kids love it! We listened to the cd on the way to Kings Island yesterday and on the way home. I think we have all of the words memorized now!
Yesterday, we left the house for Kings Island at 8:30. The kids got some donuts from Meijer and we headed out.
