Okay so I know that most people play this game with there pets...and I promise we do not treat our kids like animals! But my husband was messing around with the Wii gun and Allie was having so much fun! It was hilarious...I just had to share!!

What I see when I look to the West...

While my friend JennyKate was visiting over the weekend, we took some pictures of the mountains for her to take home. This is the view if you just look to the West from my house. I thought the pictures turned out pretty good, so I thought I would post them for you all to see! I love Colorado, it's so beautiful. Today and tomorrow it's 70 degrees!



This big mountain is called, "Long's peak" It's over 14,000 feet. My husband is dying to climb it...but I refuse to let him go!!


I hope everyone is having a great start to the week!

My most amazing Birthday weekend!!

Wow...this was only the single most amazing Birthday EVER! My little sister (and bestest friend) surprised me with my close friend JennyKate! You all know her from Jennykate's spot! I am so happy that you came JennyKate...seeing you was beyond words...it was so surreal to actually see her! Me and JennyKate met on the computer. We talk on the phone constantly and we have been friends for about a year, but we had never seen eachother. My sister and brother in law picked her up from the airport and hid her all day on Friday, later that night they brought her to Fridays for my Birthday dinner. Here is a video clip from that most amazing moment:

The best husband ever, me and JennyKate!

We just had to go see Twilight together! It was both our 3rd time..hehe
JennyKate had NEVER had sushi...so you bet we headed to the Sushi Bar! She loved it...The Saki...not so much!



THEN...as if JennyKate was not enough of a birthday surprise, my mom and sister through me a surprise party....a TWILIGHT party!!

This was only the BEST cake EVER!!!!!
Look at the apples on the table...my mom was so cute with all the Twilight details! She even made Blood red punch!!



Ummmm ya.....my sister and Gabe bought me the iCarly charades game...i will so kick butt at this!! hehe


Thank you to my wonderful sister for bringing JennyKay here and for this amazing and unforgettable Birthday!!


This has been just the best weekend! To top it off me and JennyKate are sitting here side by side blogging!! How crazy is that??

cartoon confessions...

Okay so I don't want you to think that all we do around here is watch T.V. But the kids MOST DEFINITELY do get TV time! Usually while they watch I try and clean and get things done....BUT I have to confess that a lot of the time I watch with them! Over the past years...i have seen some crazy cartoons...and i was thinking that maybe i would put all these critiques and confessions floating around in my head into a blog! I mean hey...why not...i do have about 250 other things that I SHOULD be doing...but this sounded like a fun idea! Okay here it goes:

  • Caillou- Okay...now I have NO CLUE why I even like watching this show because seriously that darn kid whines so much it drives me crazy! But for what ever deranged reason, I don't mind watching it. On a side note...who has ever seen a 4 yr old boy with ONE hair on his head??

  • Angelina Ballerina- This show is cute...I just cannot stand the little mouse's accents!! Annoying!

  • Berenstain bears- I have nothing bad to say here...I love this show! I only wish my family could just live in a tree be that perfect! You should see me and the kids sing to the opening song...ya...i know...i have issues!

  • Sponge Bob- Okay confession time! I love Sponge Bob...seriously I watch it alone!

  • Little Bear- Umm...ya...I love this show too. Don't you wish life could really be that simple

  • Oswald- OMG...i so love that little hot dog Dog. This cartoon is so sweet teaching children to put others first. Sometimes I just get so mad that Oswald is too nice and he is always getting screwed. Well...i guess in the end he never really gets screwed...but you know what I'm saying. Or Not...because I am probably the only mom who actually watches and analyzes it...LOL

  • Kipper- It cracks me up that the pig's name is just "Pig"

  • Max and Ruby- I seriously think this show is so cute! I just have one question. Where are there parents? They have a grandma down the street...but no mom and dad?

  • Noddy- This kid is such an air head...I don't understand how he lives alone and gets through the day??

  • Dora- How can you not love Dora? It is like a free 30 min of Spanish class. My daughter actually learned to count in Spanish because of Dora! I just don't get those little animals that pop out when ever Dora and Boots complete a task. Who are they??

  • Dragon Tales- this show just creeps me out.

Okay...I think I'm done. It just dawned on me...I so love my life...but Oh my goodness....I so need an adult life!! This is clearly a cry for help people!! hehe

My new painting..and me..almost 10 weeks!

So I went to this awesome art show this morning and I found this beautiful oil painting! I had it framed at the show..and it looks Parfait in my living room. Of course this silly photo does the painting no justice...the colors in person are just exquisite!



My dad is coming over tomorrow to help me hang it straight and center!

Here is me at about 10 weeks!



I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, Ciao!!

Friday Confessions.....


I am feeling great this morning...so I thought I would do some Friday confessing!


1. Okay this is bad. As you all know...I am a horrible procrastinator! The tags on my car were expired in December...and I have yet to go get the new ones! I have had the little card in my bag...not to mention the 150.00 to do it for weeks and weeks. Well....on the way home from picking up Michael on Wednesday, i noticed a cop behind me on the right side of me. I literally was chanting out loud, "Please don't see my tags, please don't see my tags!" ummmm...ya....the lights went on and he pulled me over! Lucky me...he gave me a warning and I promised to get them on Friday...TODAY...so I am totally driving down there and getting it done today! I hate being a procrastinator...sheesh!!



2. Okay if you walked into my laundry room right now, you would see this: Clothes on the floor, clothes in baskets, clothes in the dryer, clothes on top of the dryer and I wont forget the clothes IN the washer!! Ya....that's all i have to say about that!



3. Okay...now this is a confession in the making. I just got done pricing tickets to las vegas for this Spring for me and my sister to fly out and see the next Britany Spears concert. We have not missed one...and for some insane reason she is NOT coming to Denver on this next tour!! So i guess we will have to go to her!



4. Okay now this next confession is serious! I actually enjoy watching iCarley!!!! I said it out loud!!! I watch it even when the kids have fallen asleep...AND get this....last night I was totally singing (and partially jamming out) to the song they play at the beginning of the show!!



Dang it.....i had more to confess...but I guess this is all the typing that my stomach can handle...it's starting to get icky. I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

from me....to YOU...

I want to share with you the following lines from the inspiring book "The Dash"

For it matters not, how much we own,
the cars... the house... the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
and how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and hard;
are there things that you'd like to change?
for you never know how much time is left
that can still be rearranged.
If we could slow down enough
to consider what's true and real
and always try to understand
the way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger
and show appreciation more
and the love the people in our lives
like we've never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect
and more often wear a smile...
Remembering that this special dash
might only last a little while.

Happy New Year!

I just wanted to hop on and wish you all a Happy New Year! I so miss blogging and reading blogs! I am still so sick, and it makes me sick to my stomach to read anything. I thought everything was on the right track, but my blood work last week showed that my progesterone levels went down! Even after the wretched progesterone supplement! So....now I am on it in the morning and in the night! I feel the best for a few hours in the morning, so I try and clean, do email, play extra with the kids then. The rest of the day....is hmmm.....just not very good!



I have another ultra sound tomorrow and more blood work. So I will keep you updated.



I hope everyone all the best in 2009! Talk to you all soon!
