Memorial Day Weekend!

We had a wonderful holiday weekend. On Sunday, we went to Terre Haute to visit my parents. It was my dad's 60th birthday! We had such a great time!

I noticed that a bird has hatched in our nest! It is so ugly! I hope it can survive!
Today, I decided to finally paint Jaden's room. He got to pick out the color and he even helped paint! I think it looks great. The color is actually darker than in the pictures. He also wants to get a big green dinosaur decal to put on the wall. I might be getting that soon!

The dentist!

We have had an amazing couple of days! On Tuesday, we went to the park and to the library. We had such a great time together. The park is one that a friend told me about and I couldn't wait to take the trails there! It was so pretty!
Yesterday was the kids dentist appointment. I was nervous because Jaden has never liked going to the dentist! Wow, he did awesome! It probably helped that they had a room with a basketball goal in it. He loved it! Cassidy did scream and cry though. Hopefully, she will do better next time. We loved our new dentist!
Afterward, we took the kids out for ice cream and a surprise game of putt putt! They also had other fun things to do there. The kids had a blast!
Today, we have friends coming over and tomorrow is another playdate at the park! We will be going over to another friend's house on Saturday and then, to Terre Haute for my dad's birthday!
Have a great week!

Jaden's First day working

Jaden went to work with Daddy yesterday! He was so excited! He actually did a lot of work and helped all of the guys out! We are so proud of him!

Jaden had a great time. He can't wait to go back.

While they were there, Cassidy and I went to Starbucks and Barnes and Noble. It was so nice spending quality time with her. She is such a sweet little girly girl. I see many coffee dates for us in the future!
Every year, when I put my Spring wreath out, the birds find and put a nest in it. Usually, the eggs do not survive, but this year, things are going well. I hope we have baby birds soon!

Baby Fever

This week has been a long week. Jeff has been working more because of inventory at the store. This makes for some very long days for me. We haven't been up to very much exciting. Although, a friend of mine had her baby! A successful Vbac! I am so happy for her. Baby Delia is beautiful.This has not helped my baby fever! And it also doesn't help that my baby turned 3! Wow! Time just flies. I miss my little babies. I really doubt that anything will come of the baby fever and it will just pass. But, until then, I can't stop thinking about it. What a blessing little babies are! God is good.
Jaden's soccer game is cancelled for tomorrow. If it is not raining, we might head out to some yard sales. Although, the kids can't stand shopping anymore! We will also be doing some more Spring Cleaning. I am so tired of the clutter. We got the play room cleaned and organized. I will be homeschooling up there again soon!
Today was our last MOPS meeting of the year. I can't wait for our end of the year pitch in at the park in a few weeks. These ladies are truly a blessing. I enjoy their friendship. Next year, I will be the Creative Activities organizer and I can't wait. I am already planning on some very cool crafts! I hope to share a lot of them here.
Have a great weekend. Hopefully, I will have some pictures from the weekend up on Monday!

New tables

We got some new tables for our family room and I couldn't wait to get up this morning and get them in their place! I love it. I would still like a new tv cabinet, but that will have to wait. I love getting new things for the house. It makes me want to clean!

Mother's Day!

I had an awesome Mother's day yesterday! I woke up to breakfast in bed! Yum! I have to say that it was one of the best Mother's day gifts I have ever gotten. It is so relaxing to sit there and have breakfast brought to you and all of the dishes cleaned afterward. It was amazing! (thank you Jeff!)

Afterward, we went to Terre Haute to visit my parents. My mom made a brunch for us and some amazing Lime cake! I ate way too much! I will be exericising a lot today.
Some beautiful flowers from my mom!
Yesterday, I felt so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I am blessed to have two healthy kids. They are truly the best kids in the whole world!Today, I will be praying for a good friend. She went to the hospital at 4 this morning to have another sweet baby girl.

Happy Mother's Day

I want to wish a Happy Mother's Day to all of the mom's out there. I hope you have a special day. I know I am looking forward to a day all about me! ;)
I told my husband that I would like to have breakfast in bed tomorrow morning. I am very excited about that.

Cassidy's 3rd Birthday!

What a great weekend we have had. I just can't believe that my baby girl is 3.
Saturday, we started the day by having a yard sale. We only had a few things and Jaden sold some lemonade! We couldn't believe how much money Jaden made. A couple even gave Jaden $10 in Disney bucks. It is such a blessing when we run into people like that.
I spent the rest of Saturday getting the cupcakes and food ready for Sunday.
Sunday, Cassidy woke up to donuts with sprinkles and a Disney snowglobe!
Next, she opened the presents from us!
Next, she had her birthday party!
She has such a wonderful day and saw most of her family! It was great!
Today, we went to the zoo!
Our final stop was Toys R Us, where Jaden got his own scooter!
I know that was a lot of pictures, but there were just so many good ones. I could have added so many more.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend. I hope the week is just as good!
