random stuff

every now and then i have to spit out a random post!!

  this is how i found the kiddos one morning watching cartoons….


have you ever had jiffy pop NOT work…..big disappointment.


we had to go outside on the grill because it says not to pop it on a glass top stove

after 15 minutes it popped about 20 times and then stopped…..bummer!



with Caroline in school full time and Rob working 2 jobs we have been focusing on “family time” as much as we can…..this book is full of fun activities for the two of them….she loves her “daddy time!”


this year Cooper attends preschool in the afternoon…..so we have been enjoying our mornings together…Monday morning we tackled his Trio Firehouse. I cherish these mornings when its just the two of us….knowing that this is the last year he will be home with me….our time is bittersweet for me.


he received these building pieces for his Birthday back in August but had little interest in them…at first it was a little awkward for him to put the pieces together but after a bit he got really good at it! After we finished the firehouse he went to town with all the extra pieces and i sat back and watched his amazing imagination come alive!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. It's nice to meet you! And I like you even better as a sister brace face. :)
Your kids are very cute. They remind me of mine when then were younger. And our favorite place to vacation is the Outer Banks! We've been there many times but have never caught sight of the horses. You are so lucky!!

That picture in the laundry basket is priceless! And jiffy pop that doesn't pop is a HUGE bummer!
Enjoy the night
