Where did spring go?

We really do have crazy weather here in Oklahoma. Just a week ago the kids were out in the sprinkler and today it is a major snow storm! These are a few pictures from my window. It is so nice to see the pretty snow and not ice!

Back in Business!

This week is Spring Break at our house and thank goodness my whole family is WELL!!! My hubby also took vacation so we have been doing a lot around the house.

We played outside Wednesday because the weather was awesome! It was in the 80's but we had a cool front come through last night so the highs were in the 60's today still not bad for March but not as beautiful as yesterday.

One of our Bradford Pear Trees.
Forsythia is the first sign of spring in our backyard.
I actually laid out in the sun and read a book. Does it get much better than that?! We got the sprinkler out and Grace and Trey had a blast in it. As you can see from the pictures.
Ty wasn't as sure about the water. He mostly stayed out of it.
Tom and I went to the Elton John concert Tuesday night and I will be posting about that soon. It was awesome!! I had to use an old camera because they wouldn't let me take in my new one. We can't find the old cable to transfer the pictures anywhere so he might have to take it somewhere to get them off loaded! More to come later...

Are we having fun yet???

This has been a week of staying at home with sick children. It started with Ty getting sick with the Croup. I took him to the doctors office on Tuesday because he was sounding like Darth Vader. The poor guy could barley breath.

Luckily we have an awesome pediatrician that fixed him right up by giving him a steroid shot. The bad part was it made Ty irritated and wired. He couldn't decided what he wanted to watch Dora or Word World, no...Word Word World..You see where I am going with this. Talk about fun! I have  watched more of both of those shows and any one person should have to watch in a lifetime!
I missed my Moms Day Out on Wednesday and stayed home with him.  Wednesday night Trey decided to get sick. He was running a fever , headache. He ended up staying home Thursday and Friday.
Thursday morning Grace woke up with the stomach flu. Yuck!!
Can I paint a picture of projectile vomit all over my bathroom! Thank God we don't have carpet in there. I have spent much of my time sterilizing the house washing towels and sheets and trying to keep all of them for cross contaminating each other.

Now as we start spring break I am hoping that everyone will be well so we can actually enjoy the week. We can all use a vacation.

Catching Up

We had a very busy weekend at our house. I really didn't even have time to work on blogging at all. I'm not sure I even opened it up!

It started Friday morning. Grace had her speech meet at her school. She was SO nervous! She must have practiced it a hundred times.

I think I was as nervous as she was but she did great. I was so proud of her for getting up there in front of all those people.

Then later that evening we headed back to the school for a sleepover with Grace's cheer team. I volunteered to stay the night with the girls. Crazy me!!!

My dear friend Ashley and our friends daughter getting her hair done.
Grace and her friend Aubri working on a craft.
The whole gang all dolled up.
Our silly girls.

The girls had fun. We painted nails, did hair and makeup, made a craft, watched movies and ate pizza and popcorn.

I only got 5 hours of sleep but, was glad that I got that much. It was better than I thought I would get.  The hardest part of the weekend was the time change. Ouch! I just hate it. Why do we have to have a time change?? So I am still trying to catch up.

Then Saturday afternoon Trey had his first soccer game of the season. He started practice several weeks ago and was very excited about playing a game.


He scored 2 goals and his team won 15 to 2. He is finally getting the hang of it this year and has figured it out most of the rules.

So that's what we have been up to. I am caught up. Now if I could just catch up on all the house work I need to do. lol

25 Thing I Hate or "love" About Facebook

Actually I LOVE Facebook but a friend of mine posted this on her facebook page and I laughed so hard. 
I love many of the things this guy hates but I had to agree on a few items.

Do you love or hate any of them?

One of my favorite things is when it's someones birthday and you can wish them a Happy Birthday. 
One of the things I hate is when you comment on a picture and you get all the threads from other people commenting on the same picture. Even if you don't know that person.

I hope you get as big of a kick out of it as I did.
