Yeah, just a tad bit late on this one. Is there a certain date we're supposed to have these in by? LOL!
Okay, so Becky you had asked if I had any resolutions for the New Year. Yes, I do.
Here they are...
#1 Stop procrastinating! So far so good on this one. Well, except for posting these a little late! I have already bought and addressed my Valentine's Day cards so they are ready to send a week before. I have ordered all of Logan's birthday supplies and have everything planned 1 month ahead, Yea!

#2 Quit smoking! Not so good on this one. But I have cut back a good bit.

#3 Clean and organize house AND keep it that way ALL year long! Working on this and doing pretty good.

#4 Lose weight! Not doing so great on this one either. But I am going to get on it and work real hard to be 40 lbs. lighter by the end of the year.

And that's about it. I think. Oh yeah, and #5...Remember things better! Since having the kids I feel like I am losing my mind and can never remember anything!

Logan Funnies!

Logan (almost 3) is my little crazy clown boy =) He's so funny and such a goofball!
Funny #1-
Okay, so Saturday we went to a Birthday party and he got a treat sack. We're riding home and he was digging through it and pulls out a small container of Playdoh. He starts begging me to open it so I do and hand it back to him. A few seconds later I hear him say "EW, THIS IS GROSS" and he's making spitting sounds! I look back and there are teethmarks in the Playdoh! He tried to EAT it, LOL!! We all just laughed so hard.
So now you're probably wondering WHY my child tried to EAT it and didn't know he was supposed to PLAY with it, right? Well, I did the playdoh thing with Brenden & Chase and I HATE the mess that it makes! It gets everywhere then dries up and ick I just don't like it. So I've just never let Logan play with it. Maybe this Spring I'll let he & Kaiden play with some OUTSIDE on their picnic table!

Funny #2-
Last night I was looking online at for his birthday supplies. We were looking at Thomas the Train party stuff and I was showing him what we were getting. Then all of the sudden he says what I hear as "f*ckinknife". So I'm like WHAT? He says "I want f*ckinknife"! I didn't know what to say or do, so I say watch your mouth we don't say bad words like that. And he's like "NO Mommy, I WANT f*ckinknife for my birfay (birthday)! And points to the computer screen where yep, there it is... a PICTURE of a FORK AND KNIFE!!!!! Oh my goodness, I was laughing so hard!

Here's a picture of him at another birthday party we went to on Jan. 6, playing in the jumpy ball pit thing-

Been Really Busy!

I went from posting every day to not posting in almost 10 days! Sorry! Once we started back to home schooling on the 8th things have gotten hectic again. I've been writing/making thank you cards, cleaning the house and getting everything ready for Logan's 3rd Birthday party that we're having here on Sat. Feb. 16th. I know it might seem a little early BUT with me being a procrastinator and all I figured I should get started early! A lot of the supplies I buy online so if I order early I'll be sure to have them in time =)
Okay off to write a few more posts before I forget them!

Finally, Our Christmas and Pictures!

A little late here! Our Christmas was great. I got my new camera and love it =) I got Eddie the iHome dock for his iPods. And the boys got lots of neat stuff. From Santa Logan got a new bike and Bren & Chase got Rockband for the X-box 360. We have had a blast with that! Their main gift from us were the BB guns and Logan got a FAKE one! We also got him a Thomas the Train set. They got X-box games and PSP games and cars and all sorts of goodies. We had a nice time at my parents house for Christmas lunch. And an okay time at Eddie's parents house for Christmas dinner.
And now here are some pictures from Christmas Eve and day, I put them in a slideshow format for easier viewing.
Enjoy =)

Still Busy!

I took the outside Christmas decorations down Thursday. Now the house looks so blah! But no fear! Mardi Gras is Feb. 5th so it's time to decorate again, LOL! Then comes Easter, but after that it's pretty dull again until halloween.
My parents left Friday to go back to New Jersey. I will miss them. Hopefully they will get the house there sold and be back here soon.
It got really, really cold here this week...20's at night and 40's during the day. But yesterday and today it was back in the 70's and the kids played outside ALL day! They are killing me, I have things I need to do inside but instead have to be outside watching them. So I've got nothing done! Then at night we play X-box 360 Rockband. Chase plays the drums, Brenden plays the guitar, I sing on the microphone and Logan whines the whole time b/c he can't play! It sure is fun though =)

So Many Pictures, So Little Time!

I am still going through my pictures, there are so many. Cropping and editing is a bitch! But I like my pictures perfect =) I am going to put them in a slideshow format through photobuckethopefully by tomorrow night!

Eddie's Last Day Off =(

Eddie has been off since Christmas and we have really enjoyed having him home =) Although, I think I gained 10 more lbs. between holiday meals and his good cooking! So today we just hung out then went to the movies to see Alvin and the Chipmunks. Which by the way is a great movie, I highly recommend it. Then again, I have always LOVED the chipmunks!
Tonight I took the Christmas tree down =( I always hate that, I wish it could be Christmas all year long! And Eddie cooked us one last yummy dinner...pork shoulder, mashed potatoes and corn. Well, it wasn't his last, he does cook on the weekends just not during the week.
And just now Brenden felt a bump on the back of the cat's neck and it was a tick! EW, EW, EW! We don't usually let the cat in, he's an outdoor cat but it's going to be like 20 degrees tonight and I didn't want him to freeze! So, I went online and typed im "how to remove tick from cat"! It was pretty simple. Eddie got some pliers and I got the alcohol and cortisone cream. He grabbed it at the base and gently pulled it out and put it in the toilet, I cleaned the spot with alcohol and then rubbed cortisone cream on it. Now we'll keep an eye on it.
I can't believe how cold it is! Our high today was only 41 and right now it's 27 with a wind chill of 19 which is fricken freezing to me!
Becky asked if I had any resolutions for 2008...I did, LOL! But so far am not doing so good! I'll write those out tomorrow.
And I promise I have pics coming soon.
Goodnight and stay warm =)

So Tired

Oh, I am so tired! Yesterday I made cookies, got fireworks and went to the store to get ready for our New Year's party at my parents house. We got over there around 7, a little early but Eddie had to set up his propane and burner to reheat the humongo pot of chicken and sausage gumbo he made. While he did that my mom and I set out the other food and I cooked some rice for the gumbo. She had tons of dips and chips and crackers along with some boiled shrimp. I also made a cheese tray, sugar cookies and brought some meatballs and BBQ sauce in the crock pot. A little after 8 the adopted Grandparents Kathy and Sonny came over. Kathy made her awesome punch and some dips. We ate the gumbo and shrimp around 8:30 then snacked on all the other goodies and then everyone started drinking! Well, I think Eddie had already started while cooking the gumbo! I, being the designated driver (and I really don't drink that much anyway) drank the punch and spiked it with just a tad of crown royal. The rest of the night I just drank the punch.
It was actually pretty cold last night so everyone stayed inside most of the time talking and eating while me, Eddie, my brother and his fiance stayed outside watching the kids pop their fireworks. A little after 10 Eddie's parents came over...wasn't expecting that. Each year we invite them and they never show.
At midnight another neighbor came by to watch us do our fireworks show. This is the guy that came by last year and Logan, my child who doesn't go to anyone went to this guy. So when he walked up again this year, and Logan hasn't seen him all year, what do ya know Logan went right to him again! It's too weird! Anyway, Eddie had bought some big fireworks so we set those off at midnight and they were pretty cool. Along with the other fireworks across the lake, it was a good show. Then the kids started popping the rest of their little fireworks when a truck came by, it was Eddie's brother, his wife, her sister & boyfriend and another guy. They came in to visit for a bit and the other 3 were drunk in the back of her suburban! They and Eddie's parents left shortly after. So the kids stayed out popping fireworks while we cleaned up and ate some more! We didn't leave until 2:30. Got home safely and into bed by 3.
Eddie was SO wasted! I knew that today he would be out and was right. He was hurting all day and stayed in bed while I cleaned and made cupcakes to take to my parents house at 4. We went over there to eat our traditional black eyed peas and cabbage (although I forgot to make the corn bread, darn it) And yes, for my Northern friends this is a Southern eat black eyes peas, cabbage and cornbread is supposed to bring good luck, health and wealth in the New Year =) Not sure if it works, but it sure is good!
When we got home at 7 Eddie was up and feeling better so I cooked him some black eyed peas with rice and cornbread (didn't feel like make the cabbage). As soon as I was done with that I told them dinner was ready and me and Logan went to bed at 8. Unfortunately, he thought it was a nap and woke up, ugh. Hopefully we'll get back to bed in just a bit!
I have lots of pics to share but am trying to make it easier by doing a slide show. So I'll work on that tomorrow and post about our Christmas soon too!
We hope you all had a very Happy New Year! I hope this year brings all the best for y'all.


Hope everyone had a safe and happy one!
