Weekend Recap

We had a great weekend. Friday was raining and cold and the kids were off of school so we just stayed home and I did some cleaning and catching up on things.
 Ryan has been gone the last couple of Sat for class so we decided to have a family Sat and we went to Bass
Pro to just look around and the kids loved it. We then went to Joe's Crabshack for dinner. It was so fun. They do dancing every hour and fun games. Cadence did limbo and it was a blast to watch her.
   Sat night we came home and just enjoyed the rest of the evening at home.
    Sunday we got up and the kids found the Easter baskets(no pictures for those, I forgot) and then we go ready to go to church. It was such a great sermon. so fulfilling and wonderful to hear about the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Since my family usually does not come for Easter we usually just hang out and enjoy the Sunday together.
Check the bib out, it says Crab Daddy!

This was the pan of food Ryan ordered and Kendric ate alot of it. Including the shrimp and oysters. I was about to throw up because I do not like those things at all,but was very surprised when he ate it.

They were taking pictures of the evening

Before Easter Service

Bass Pro visit. They loved it and it as free entertainment!
  It was a great weekend!

5Q Friday

1. What is your favorite Easter tradition?

   Well I honestly do not remember any. I remember getting together with family and going for Easter Egg hunts, and coloring Easter eggs, but we did not do much. . . We use to have a big sit down dinner and get all dressed up,but now we go to church and then come home and that is it. I would love for my family to come so we start the tradition of Easter dinner with mykids,but not sure that will happen. I think it should be a fancy occasion because you are celebrating Jesus.  We normally would get together with Ryan's family and color easter eggs

2. Are you a "shower" or a "long, hot bath" kind of person?

Shower all the way.  I love the shower just beating down on me, I have never really been a bath person.

3. Can you parallel park and if so when is the last time you did it?

  No I cannot and Ihate doing it so I always advoid it as much as I can.

4. What is your favorite Easter candy?
    Malted milk robin eggs

5. Easter: do you go all out with the Easter Bunny or focus on the religious part of the holiday? Both, we do the Easter basket,but we also talk about the religious part more. We talk about the ressurection eggs and what it means and then what the gifts in the basket mean.

7 months wowzers

I cannot believe you are 7 months already.
You are sitting up on your own now and h
holding your own bottle.
You can roll over from back to belly,but still no such luck from belly to back. I wish because you wake up in the m iddle night still because you get stuck on your belly and cannot turn back over. Oh I wish you could turn over.
You eat solids at dinner time. Still not a huge fan of them,but you will eat them.
You are napping better,but I still think it could be better.
I am still nursing you at night and early in the morning. Not willing to give it up yet.
You still  have no teeth,but they are sure working on coming in.
Please come in little teeth.
You have such a personality on you. You have a temper,but yet the biggest grin that melts hearts.
We love snookums!

Easter party

Kendric had his Easter Party at school yesterday
Always a fun time

Purple was the color my friend Emily picked out for our pedicure last Thursday(which I am really late posting.) ~I  love the color alot and so does my husband! He was happy to see the color.  I cannot remember the last time I had a pedicure and my feet were so gross. I feel sorry for the lady who worked on them. It was so nice to have smooth nice feet and even toe nails. I think I will allow myself to have pedi's all summer. No need in the winter time.  Thanks Emily for going with me and we will have to do again.

1. What is your favorite sign of spring?
 All the kids in thw cul se dac playing and running around... along with the tulips blooming,green grass, and the smell of freashly cut green grass.

2. What was your best birthday ever?
 It was my 27th birthday and I went to out to dinner to the Montgomery Inn and my family and I and(boyfriend) at the time were eating dinner and all of a sudden, Ryan stands up and announces to everybody in the restaurant that he wants their attention, I am thinking to myself, what the heck is going on. Ryan gets down on his knee and asks me to marry him! Shock of a lifetime and a little embarrassed,but I said yes.

3. What is your favorite dessert?
    Strawberry cheesecake

4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?
   Well, I was 9 months pregnant and it was 2 weeks before my due date and I was on my way home from work and apparently going to fast and get pulled over. I told the cop that Iwas having contractions and I was speeding to go home and get my husband.  He let me go quickly! Funny thing is, that was on a Friday and I had Kendric on Sunday. I was telling the truth a little.

5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?
 well  I wake up with my alarm, but if Kaelis decides to get up 10 mins before my alarm, I just stay up. sometimes it is even a half hour before, and I just stay up. no point in going back to bed! Seriously, I think she does it on purpose!

Columbia Visit

On Sat we traveled to Columbia to visit my sister and brother in law and my 2 nieces. Ryan and Matt had a class so the kids and I hung out andwent to the park and had a picnic. We played outside and just had a great time.

 One of the outside cats my sis in law takes care of had kittens and they were all snuggled in a little basket. Temption to take home,but Cadence's allergies were awful because of the cat and we have a dog. That is enough.

5Q Friday

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
 I wish I could change my habit of biting my nails. It gets so frustrating because
I canncot keep long fingernails.  I tried alot of things,just not working. I have now passed the habit onto my daughter. Great! I will add in another thing, I wish my stomach had noticable abs and the leftover baby fat would go away.

2. Write about a time when you got lost.
     I was on my way to meet my boyfriend(at the time) and took the wrong way on the highway and ended up in another state. Ryan had to talk to me on the phone while telling my which way to go. I was all turned around and scared to death I was not going to find my way back. Wowzers.

3. Camping or 5 star hotel?
 Oh 5 star hotel all the way. Tried camping, yep,. not for me.
I like a warm bed and the heat and hearing the bugs from the inside,not right up close.

4. Have you donated blood?

5. Do you have a budget or do you 'fly by' most months?
 I have to have a budget, or there will be trouble. Once money is gone, it is gone for the month. It really helps
when I see the money fly out, to slow down and think about purchases I am making.

mom visit

My mom came and visited last week because it was her spring break.
It was so nice having her here and to get a little break from the kiddos.
My mom took Cadence to get her first mani and pedi. She loved it. I need a pedi as well and maybe we can make it another mother daughter day. I, however need to get go with my long lost friend Emily first, then I will take C.
It was such a great visit. We could not do anything together because I had to work all week,but it was nice just to hang out with her and have another adult to talk to you during the day!
Kendric cried and cried this time when she left, it just gets harder.
I so wish my parents would move here,but not the right time.
We are going to Ohio in June for a visit, so we are all excited about that.

6 month checkup

Yesterday was Kaelis's 6 month check up.

Waiting for the doctor and having fun destroying the paper.
                                           You weight 15.2 and are 30% for weight,(I thought it would more than that) and you are 251/2 inches long 50%.
                                               You have only rolled over a 1/2 dozen times(which bugs me)
                                                You can sit up by yourself with help
                                                 No teeth yet,but am working on them
                                                You are sleeping through the night and wake up very happy.
                                                You love to smile and giggle and grab  your feet and play. You are such a happy go lucky baby!

Kendric passing the time by singing where is thumbkin.

Since I took a pic of Kendric, of course I had to take one of her.

Love the hugs and open mouth kisses

love her more everyday!
