About time I did this

I've been wanting to do something with all these pictures I take of the kids. A photo book of some sort was my idea. I finally sat down and made a quick little book. I'm not sure if I'm going to give the kids each a copy or let them share. I might just get one and see how they do sharing it. I was trying to use to upload my pictures but I pretty much created the pages all myself in Adobe Illustrator. I am going to have to shop around for printing prices because Blurb charges $32.12. For 20 pages in 5X7 and to me that seems a bit pricey. I know I can get something printed at staples I'm just scared about the quality. If you have input as to affordable prices let me know :) .

I tried not to spend too much time on it cause I have too many other things to do, but it didn't take me very long. I figured I would just do little sketches and doodles and didn't try to be perfect with my drawings because I didn't want to spend a lot of time on it.  I love th…

#tbt romance edition!!!

**Dear Followers** I have had to update my domain name as you can tell, will now be which means I will need to redo my designs. Anywho you may have to update your bloglist? I don't know how it all works this is all so confusing. It took me like 3 days to access this blog. Let me know if you need help! Thanks for reading along!

I almost forgot today was #tbt (throw back Thursday) I wanted to post something each week from mine and my hubbies past until our 6 year anniversary on June 9th. So it will be almost 6 weeks of #tbt posts not 6 because then I would be asking for bad karma am I right??

When I was first getting to know Rob we hung out with the single adults group in my church a lot. We got to know each other through that but what really kicked it up a notch was our road trip to visit some friends in Nashville TN which was about a 2 hour ride. It was then that I found out more about him and realized he loved to stop a lot on road trips where…

Me, the teacher.

My kids really do give me some trying days, but I have to say here lately they make up for it with they're silly ways that really crack me up.

Some things I need to remember and journal about are when I was trying to go over the alphabet with the kids. I want my soon to be Kindergartener ready for school and my soon to be preschooler ready for preschool so we are going to have to be diligent in study this summer...somewhat.

I had the kids sing the alphabet by themselves for a piece of candy and my youngest it must have been a while because she just couldn't remember it.  I also wanted them to pronounce the letters correctly so it was pretty funny in particular teaching them the letter V. Which they pronounce B. Ba Ba B. Instead of Va Va V.  It went a little something like this.
ME; "Va"
Them: "Ba"
Me: "Va"
Them "Ba"
Me "vvvvvvv" ( I don't know how to spell that)
Them "vvvv"
Me "Va va vooom"
Them: "B…

Oh Poop *Content may not be suited for those that don't like potty talk*

As a lot of you know I have been trying to potty train my 2 year old.   I've recently realized that it's more complicated than I thought because she is holding in her poop now. I don't think she had a problem with it when we weren't potty training. It was just recently I noticed she will have streaks in her pants/undies/pull-ups whatever and she will have it all day long. I will wipe her only a few minutes later to see her wriggling on the floor holding it in again and then have to wipe her all over again.  Its so strange vecause she holds it quite often i will see her drop to the floor and go all stiff leg, she even did it in church. She hasn't had a full bowel movement in a while.  It's very frustrating. Even when I see her doing the cheek squeeze and put her on the potty she won't poo. If anything it's small.

As you can imagine we go through quite a lot of pull-ups. We have quit using undies because it's just happening more frequently now, probab…

Throw Back Thursday

I was thinking that I'd maybe try and post every Thursday until our anniversary something from my husbands and my past. Is that grammatically correct?? I don't know. Whatever. My blog my rules.  Grammar rules do not apply here so if it bugs you, leave.

Anywhozzles, this throwback was from our first date together..where it all began. Once upon a time in a town far far away...ok I'm just kidding.

I can't remember if he knew that I didn't like getting flowers cause they just die or not. But he drew this awesome picture of him holding a rose and he made this frame out of his corduroy pants, isn't that so creative. I think I fell in love with his artistic and creative side after he gave me this.  I was really impressed for our first date.

Then we tried to take a walking tour of Elizabethtown, where I lived except nothing was open and it wasn't much of a tour, but we had a lot of good conversation and laughs.  Made for some great memories!

Love my husband!

A little breakfast conversation....

My kids continuously make me laugh, which is a good thing because I am with them all day. Can you imagine if they weren't any fun?

Yesterday my son and I were eating breakfast and I was making different silly faces at him just to see what his response would be. His reaction was to make silly faces back at me of course. This went on for a little bit, us being silly back and forth. It made for a pretty funny breakfast.

I guess I should add that usually my son has breakfast at preschool but the last few days I've kept him home. I'm thinking about just keeping him here since his school will be out for summer in a few weeks anyways.  So this is why we've had some pretty fun breakfasts. My daughter is usually sleeping since she likes to sleep in and just lay in her bed when she wakes up.

My son is the early riser and it's been nice to eat with him in the mornings just the two of us.
So this morning we were chatting and I was asking him if he minded staying home and not …
