Memorial Weekend

Day before we left for Cyrstal Hot Springs, Kaisey got nailed by a swinging child right in the face. Scratches and a big black eye!

Camping with the Moser's. Crystal Hot Springs is only like an hour and a half from here. On the way down, we got Wendy's cuz let's face it.....who actually leaves when they say they are going to? Anywho, we had to play musical cars with our children, because our truck doesn't fit our entire family any more. So Abbi and Baylee went with the Moser's, and we took Allie. Allie and Kali are the same age, and Kali ADORES Allie! So they eat most of their food, and decide to make some half chewed concoction into the soda cup. By the time we realized they were sniffing, and spitting into this was too late. Yup. Another one of my monkey's refunds. Luckily mom's a fast thinker, and grabbed a big Wendy's bag (which of course had all the fries in it).

We had such a fun time, and were glad to have the Moser's there!

Last night I had to do my "usual" running back and forth. Drop Kali at dance, drop Kaleb at baseball, get Kali from dance, get her to soccer, get Kaleb from baseball, get Abbi ready for dance....and drag Kaisey along. Well.......little "bump" in the road. In between picking up Kali and getting her to soccer, I got a phone call from the baseball park. Kaleb got hit with a pitch. It was hard enough that it left the threads, and it was swollen.

This was right after I picked him up. He had been icing it.

AND this is from this morning. Ouch! So...getting to the point of showing you my kids owies? I do have two children with black eyes and trauma's to their faces....and I don't beat them. I promise! Poor babies!

Tip O' The Day

Baylee got her gum stuck in Kali's hair. I would have totally flipped out....however I DO know how to "safely" remove gum from hair without cutting it off. So for my tip o' the day: peanut butter. Shmear that crap ALL over the piece of gum, wait a couple hours, and it'll work right out.

See? Good as new!

District Again?

We got a phone call the other night from the guy in charge of the District Science Fair. He went back through all the scores and there was a mistake on Abbi's. She actually took 2nd, instead of 3rd! Great job Abbi! Congratulations!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to my mom. She is the most unselfish person I know. When I was in High School, she took the bus to and from work EVERY day so that I had a vehicle to drive. Who does that? We didn't always get along when I was younger but she is one of my best friends now. She is very supportive of me, and she's always in my corner. Mom....I love you!

Happy Mother's Day to me! My kids were so excited, that they wanted to give me my gifts several days ago and I made them wait until today. Thank you for making my day so special!

The night before competition. What girl doesn't remember these hideous rollers from when they were little?

The super cold morning. I don't think it was quite as cold as last year, but we did come better prepared this year!

Camryn, Katie and Abbi. Abbi really wanted to bring friends this year. They took off with her daddy Brad so they could do all the "big kid" rides.

Kaleb's new thing is paper airplanes. He has been making them every chance he gets. Jonas (one of his friends) did an experiment for his 1st grade Science project, and he's been obsessed ever since. He actually tore off a piece of the white table paper during the competition to make one, and began throwing it back and forth with Abbi's daddy. Then we look back and find that he's made a new friend.

Everybody kept telling us what a cute little baby. She was VERY funny. She was so curious about people. She was waving to everybody, and she even figured out how to walk in a circle today.

I told Trent that I wanted a Diet Coke, and he came back with these massive things. They were so big, that they wouldn't even fit in the stroller, and they were only larges. wonder American's are getting fat! LOL

The littler kids with their prizes. They couldn't go on the last ride with Abbi and her friends, so we went for cotton candy, and prizes. Don't they look super happy?

I, on the other hand, came home with a migrane. I think this happened last year too! Why does Lagoon stress me out so bad?

Abbi took 3rd place in District last week for her Science Fair Project. Way to go Abbs!!!
