Girl's Day!!

Sunglasses..check...lipgloss..check...grab your pocketbook and here we go!!! While the boys have a day together, Gracie and I hit the road for a fun Girl's Day!! She has saved up some of her allowance money, and we are off to Target, not to spend it all ,of course. We are trying to teach this diva about saving as well :)
Last weekend was absolutly beautiful, so we loaded up the Ol' Explorer with the kids, Nae-Nae, Pop-Pop, Uncle Hymie, and Aunt Lauren and headed to the Battle of Aiken!!! We had the best time eating BBQ and drinking freshly squeezed lemonaide..yummy!!! To top it off, a nice spread of blankets and a cool breeze while chowing down on some funnel cakes awaiting the battle to begin!!!

It's Booster Time for Bryce!!

So,we're only a few months off, but oh well....with Pre-K registration just around the corner, Michael and I had to take Bryce to that agonizing 4year check-up today:(
First off, I can't tell him anything to expect about the appointment because he would begin screaming from the moment we would arrive at the office. I hate that! He thinks he is going to talk to Dr. Chappell about going to school...oh, boy....guilt is building up inside me as he steps on the scale...41 lbs!! Only 4 lbs separate him and his 6 1/2 year old sister!! Okay, so far, so good!!
Time to tee-tee in the cup....he wonders if we can play this game at home?! I really would probably say yes to anything right now because I feel so bad about what awaits him at the end of this appointment!!
Eye test...check..thank goodness, considering his parents, on to the ears....outcome=Selective hearing!!!! He only would raise his hand when he felt like is what he told the nurse! Go figure!!
The time has come for the final stage of our dreaded visit...Michael and I are starting to really feel for our little guy who is sitting on the examining table talking about trucks and Spiderman with a big grin on his face...
Out goes the doctor and in comes the nurse....with FOUR needles!!!
It was then that we had to do alot of explaining and ALOT of coaxing!!! Thank you Toys R Us and Sweet Tea!!!! We got through it because of you!!!
After all was said and done, Michael told Bryce he cries too when he gets shots! We were proud of our boy,and he thinks that the nurse injected him with muscles, so okay!

I LOVE a Good sale!!!!!

Old Navy Jeans are on sale!! Adults $19 and kids $12!!! who doesn't like a pair of great fitting jeans?! Especially when they are dirt cheap :)

Snow Day in Augusta!!!!

Well, the weatherman was FINALLY right and after patiently waiting, Gracie and Bryce got to experience playing in the snow. I have to admit that it was well worth the wait :) They built a snowman, made snow angels, and even had a snowball fight with some of the neighborhood children in our front yard! I hope that they will remember how much fun they had as much as I did watching them!

It's the Little Things....

It's a typical trip to Target...I'm there for the third time that day getting a vacuum cleaner because the dog just chewed up the cord on my old one, and so, yes I am a bit frustrated. It's almost dinner time, and the kids are arguing over who will ride in the buggy as Gracie attempts to hit Bryce in the back of the head....I hear myself getting louder as I threaten them...I am about to lose it...and then my phone rings..."Hello". It was my dad, "What are you doing?" I proceed to tell him about the "vaccum incident" and why I am at Target for the THIRD time today! "What's up, Dad?" "Oh, nothing." he says. "I was just thinking about you and how much I love you and how proud I am of you." I just sit there for a minute. "Is everything okay, dad?" Not that my dad hasn't told me this before, but never at random times. "Yes, he replied, "Everything is fine; I was just thinking about you and wanted to call you and let you know."
I don't think he knows how much that phone call in the middle of my frustration had just meant the world to me. As long as I live, I will not ever forget that my father was not only thinking about me but was able to share his feelings with me.
I left Target with a vacuum in hand and a smile on my face :) I love you dad!!

Let the games Begin!!!

Since I had my sonogram which revealed that I was having a boy, Michael has been patiently waiting for this moment to arrive.....the time has come to register Bryce for "Wee-Ball"!!! Now, even though Michael has been so excited about playing catch with Bryce, it was completely Bryce's decision in the end whether to do it or not, and I must admit that I did laugh as Michael was asking Bryce if he wanted to play because I know he would die if Bryce said "no"! Well, Bryce 's response was obvious with one condition...Bryce insisted on wearing "the Black Stuff" under his eyes! Okay, so the four of us went together as Michael proudly filled out the paperwork with a smile on his face!! and then of course, lunch to celebrate!!
