Build-a-Bear Baby!

We had Alexis's birthday party at Build-a-Bear today and she had the best time.  Actually, I am pretty sure that all the little ones had a great time.  They made some adorable bears and played hard while making them.  Alexis made the Spooky Kitty, which she named Miley and Nicholas made a furry dog that he named T. Muffin (well mommy picked the name because I use to call him my turd muffin).

Here are a few pix for now, will work on a slide show tomorrow.

Party #1 ~ The Family

Here are a few pix from the family party!

Happy 3rd Birthday Lexi!

I know this is a day late, but I spent the entire day yesterday with my Princess!  We made it an entire day all about her.  And she loved it.  We went shopping for her some new shoes, we had lunch at Olive Garden (her choice), then we had a family party with cupcakes and lots of presents!  Once we got home from her party, she was so exhausted ~ she passed out snuggling with daddy!

Now she is sitting in the floor with my little prince watching her new Hannah Montana Movie!

Wordless Wednesday - Where I Spent My Weekend

Adam & Lexi

For those of you who do not know our family, my cousin Adam hates to take pictures and claims not to be a kid person.  I think this photo says otherwise!

My Brother's Birthday Party

OK, I know I am a little behind, but I finally uploaded my pictures from my brother's birthday party and this weekends Maggie Valley Adventure.

By-the-way, Brittany made the cake!

Small Talk Six - Six Jobs You Think Would Be A Blast

Small Talk Six - Six Jobs You Think Would Be A Blast!
(Post your 6 with a word, sentence, phrase or even a photo. Just as long as you post!)

  1. CSI:  I am a huge fan of the CSI show and think this would be my #1 job.  Although I would not like the actual crimes that occur, I would love being able to help solve them.
  2. Computer Program Writer:  My uncle writes computer programs and I have always been facisnated with his work. 
  3. Ice Skater:  I watch the ice skating programs and I imagine myself zooming across the ice, spinning and twirling and jumpiing around.  Then I open my eyes and realize that I could never get my butt in the air like those girls do!
  4. Prima Ballerina:  I took ballet for 6 1/2 years and truly loved it.  I only quit because we moved to North Carolina and I did not fins another dance studio that I really liked.
  5. Air-line Stewardest:  If I were single with no children, this would be the job for me.  Traveling all over the world just seems like a dream job.
  6. Concert Promoter:  Jet setting all around the globe!  Promoting new bands, meeting new people.  Always something new.
OK, these are my 6 dream jobs, now tell me yours!

My Weekly Wrap-Up

It is finally Thursday and that means, my weekend is here!  No class on Monday so I have a 4 day weekend and I NEED it.

I have had classes all this week and have had 4 tests this week.  Not trying to pat myself on the back, but I am very proud of myself, I made 3 - 100's and 1 - 96!  I guess school is like riding a bike, once you get back into the swing of things, it just comes natural!

Alexis has a great time at dance class this week and we have enjoyed watching her nightly presentations of what she has learned.  She is becoming quite the little ballerina.

Nicholas has 2 more of his molars and has been talking up a storm!  His new words this week are:  no, door and book.

Brittany has rearanged a couple of her classes at school and is now in an advanced foods class.  Which she loves.  She is also in a program that will allow her to teach a class at our local middle school. 

As for Doug, no major news.  He has been working a lot of overtime this week and is looking forward to being off this weekend.  I am sure he is cooking up a couple of hunting excursions for Friday and Saturday night!

The kids and I are heading to Maggie Valley for a few days.  Time for a little R&R and what wonderful weather for a mountain trip!  So do not be surprised if I am not on-line.  I might be outside enjoying a technology free weekend!

Hope everyone enjoys their long weekend!

Wordless Wednesday

Can you believe this is my 16 year old and her UNCLE who is 2 weeks younger than her.  How many people can say their uncle is in the same grade as them and even has the same lunch block??

Random Tuesday Thoughts

It's that time again! Time for Tuesday's Random Thoughts.
  • I cannot believe that it is the 1st of September already! Where has this year gone?? It seems like just yesterday when I was doing my spring cleaning and fall is here already!
  • How about this weather! It is wonderfully cool outside and I love it. My air is off and my windows are open. FRESH AIR AT LAST.
  • My little prince has learned so many new words in the past week. It is amazing to see how quickly he is picking things up. He is finally at a point where he is communicating with words, no just fussing. He is growing up too fast for mommy.
  • My little princess is going to be 3 in 16 more days! We are having her party at Build-A-Bear and she is super excited. To be honest, mommy is a little excited as well. This is going to be the smallest, cheapest party I have had for her and yet I think it will be one of the funest.
  • I cleaned out my children's downstairs toys last night to make room for birthday and Christmas presents. I still need to down size!
  • We are yard saling next Saturday and I have not even started going through the tons of stuff in my storage building! I guess I am going to have to get busy this week and next.
  • We are leaving for the mountains on Friday and I cannot wait. I am going to spend 4 days relaxing on the island listening to the creek run. This is my favorite place in the world to be.
  • I took my first quis in English today and I got a 100%. YEAH!
  • I took my first test in Biology yesterday and I am pretty sure I got a B on it. Not so yeah, was really wanting an A. Oh, well, I tried.
  • My car is not running - yet again. I believe I have a dead battery this time, last time it was the radiator needing to be flushed. But, it is paid for! So I try not to complain toooo much.
  • I need to go and pick up my prescription and check my post office box today. I have not checked my mail since Saturday. Not that I am expecting anything wonderful. Probably just a box full of love letters (bills).
  • I have an assignment to write a descriptive paragraph. No more than 150 words and it has to be completely objective. I have to pick something simple, like a pencil, a leaf or a toothpick. Can we say BORING! I love to write, but I prefer more interesting topics and more room for subjectivity.
