Amazing Little People

I went to the Butler Days Inn last night for a huge consignment sale. I wasn't really impressed but I bought Aaron some more Goosebump books and the little guys some Little People stuff. I can't believe how much they love them!!! Aaron acted like I was Santa Claus bringing him toys when I showed him the ten new books he's got!! The little guys played for two hours without fighting, biting, or hitting with their new toys!!! We have a large barn, a small barn, and Noah's Ark with numerous little figures to go with them! Where have these toys been on all those rough winter days?

Errand Day

Since Doug had the day off...we had to get stuff done. After Aaron almost missed the bus this morning, we were off to the grocery store. We heard about Smart Shopper up in Knox (which is 21 miles from my house, not bad since the closet town is 18). I think it's almost like an Aldi but a little different. Anyway...we had one buggy filled to capasity..top and bottom...and the second buggy's bottom filled full and only spent $137!!! I couldn't believe it!!! My pantry looks like it came right out of RealSimple Magazine. I should take a picture but wont for fear it will never look that pretty again. Put the boys to bed as soon as we got home and we attacked the house together (which was a relief) and ate lunch with the boys. Not before cleaning up Peyton's poopy mess in his crib and Doug bathing him. Off to Wal Mart we went. Flying through there...getting the items they didn't have at the first store...including pepsi. Anybody that knows me knows I need Pepsi to survive. Then to the doctors for our well visit where the boys were terrible!!! Screaming and crying and acting like the world is about to end. Six shots later (2 each) we are on our way home to make burgers and fries. Just as we are about to sit down for dinner....Micah poops much more than a baby should ever poop. A total explosion covering everything in it's path. Good ol Doug plops him in the tub. Finally we have all eaten and getting the kitchen cleaned up for the last time wouldn't ya know it....Coby smells like a sewer and has pooped all over his jammies. Doug threw him in the tub. They are in bed...hopefully keeping their diapers on...and I am done for the day!!! Please let tomorrow be better!!!

I realized today that I'm done living life on cruise control!! You only live once and right now....life is living me! I am going to plan and do more!!! I would love to get all my recipes (including all family recipes) into one big book. That way I don't have to rummage through tons of cook books to find my recipe. Along with that...I want to become a better cook, get caught up in scrapbooking, become fit and healthy (meaning taking care of that anemia problem) and have a fun filled summer packed with mini vacations!!! I'm done feeling like I'm stuck in a rut. I'm officially pulling myself out of it.

Grandparents Anniversary Dinner Party

Today was the party for my grandparents 62nd wedding anniversary!!! Every year they take the whole family (today it was 20) to the Villa Grande in Butler, Pa. The babies were horrible due to bad timing of naps and pure stubborness. All in all.....it was a nice time. Here is a pic of my grandparents. It's not the best...but like I said...horrible little boys at the time. I did put a nicer pic of my granparents at a previous party. They are party animals!!!

Going to get in the swing of things!!!!!

I'm determined to get in the swing of things!!! I'm pretty faithful to checking my facebook.. but that's all I seem to do and then I get pulled away to do some mommy business. Well damn it I'm doing it. Starting tomorrow...more pics and more blogging!!! I also need to start paying more "attention" to Doug. It's hard to work on a relationship when your dead tired at the end of the day!!!
