It's been soo long

I really has been a really LONG time since I have written! My life is not how I was when I wrote last but I wouldn't trade it. I truly believe all things happen for a reason.

A little update on "us"....

I am a busy lil bee with raising the girls and working full time. S is now 6 yrs old and in first grade and is doing an amazing job she is headed into the gifted program, I am sooo happy for her. I think she will LOVE it. H is now 4 yrs old and she is beyond excited to start school it won't get here quick enough for her.

I will try to keep this updated now!

I guess her name is "Gray"

S, miss artsy....had to make a collar for the cat in case she got outside. Well, the cat HATES it. G will get it off and S will see it laying on the floor and pick it back up and put it on the cat. G tolerates it tho she will walk around with it and fall asleep with it.

My Kindergartener!!

Click to enlarge cuz u just can't see it good.

S came home today with this today. OMG her writing is getting better and better check out the spacing. Don't ya love the yellow zebra hehe. Sentences, sight words and reading books....makes me a proud momma!!! Half of the school year is already over, why do they grow up??

Pumpkin Cake

I discovered this from Jill. Then Megan made it so I had to have my turn. I didn't even wait until it cooled off completely its good. Next time I think I might add some pumpkin spice to the batter or just used the spice cake instead and make the icing. Here's how mine looks......

Back in the groove.....

I can't believe its January already. That long school break was really nice and today started our first day back to reality. S is back in school, it's weird that they started them on a Tuesday vs. yesterday. We were able to sneak in a dentist appointment for S which I was nervous about but she did wonderful and didn't take my camera opppsss!! She also started up skate lessons again yesterday. She got ice skates for Christmas but we had to send them back to get a different size so we should have them for next Monday. When we got to the rink yesterday the parking lot was PACKED!! I can only imagine it is from the results of the show and that everyone wants to try it out. I like the smaller classes since u really get more for your money but thankfully they separate them according to levels of experience.

I finished up another class of school and waiting on my next book to get here. I am really not looking forward to this class. The good news, is after this class it should be smooth sailing...ok with a little ripples here and there but nothing that I can't accomplish.

So on goes my day, laundry day that is...and lil H is sad since her sister is not home. When I dropped S at school this morning she got out we said our goodbyes, we love u's, have a good day and S closes the door. H says, "Mommy, I am going to miss....Shelby" Sisterly love...I love it!!!

more news next time......

Kids Tea Set

This tea set is the CUTEST thing EVER!!! I absolutely love it...

This was a Christmas present for the kids. It's from Constructive Playthings this was money well spent. It is a six piece service set and a tea pot with a milk and sugar. The tea pot and sugar have removable lids. Online it doesn't show the chrome rack that comes with it but it is included. I got the catalog in the mail and spotted this for the girls. It's made of ceramic so I just make sure they play with it on soft surfaces so they won't accidentally break. The age limit on the web site suggests 5 yrs and older.

Christmas 08

I have fallen of the wagon with blogging as you can tell. Life has just gotten in the way holidays, my school work, kids and of course the school winter break. Preparing for Christmas ate up most of the month. So Christmas has come and gone it's sad. The kids had a great time this year its so magical when they are little. Why can't they stay little forever?

Our Tree

Making Gingerbread houses, the kids always love making these. The icing came out wonderful this year. We saved all the leftover candy from Halloween for them to use. Yes, I've been hanging on to since in wasting money, right? It's all going in the trash anyway.

H inspecting her Candy Cane ornament.

This show was awesome the instructors worked so hard on all of the details and choreography for all numbers. It last two hours, it started last since they had a line of people out the door to get into the show. Of course we got to the rink early to get good seats. I can't wait for spring show and next christmas. This Friday we have the family Christmas show its going to be FUN. I can't wait to put on a pair of skates and see if I can attempt to do the moves Shelby has learned. I hope H will at least try to get out on the ice I am sure she will be scared.

This was after the show she was showing off for the family hahah!!

Ms. Kitty

Yes, we still have the mystery cat. My FIL, keeps asking when we are going to name her. S replies, "We don't know her name, we call her Kitty". Prior to Kitty showing up at the door step we had other plans for the kids and an animal but for now we have Kitty and apparently it happened this way for a reason.

Thankfully, she is a good cat. I was afraid she would tear up my new couches but we haven't had a problem. We did see a worm, YUCK!! so we got her some medicine and haven't seen any to get her fixed!! After E (a friend of animal lover that has a zoo, not literally lol) saw her...she thinks she is at least a yr or so old. S has her all scrunched up in this pic so she looks bigger I think...maybe she has just gained weight since we have taken her in and a pic adds 10 lbs right?

I have been saving money on food for her, a lovely $4 coupon in the Sunday paper on IAMS cat food..ended up paying $3 for the bag!! At least she is saving me some money.

For you cat owners what kind of litter to you use?? I picked up Fresh Step but it doesn't clump like the package says it does. We haven't had the smelling issue it just doesn't clump!

Polar Express Train

I know seriously stop with the Christmas related blogs, right?

It goes along with the book. You board the train head up to the North Pole to pick up Santa and enjoy hot chocolate the book reading all in your fluffy pj's. Of course the trip would not be complete without the bell. Interested, find a train near you and check out the video.

I seriously wanted to do this last year but J was in Iraq and it would not be the same without him. The drive is about 7 hours or so from here. They could quite possibly be reserved already but its worth a phone call.
