Jason is being so cute this morning. I was going through boxes in the nursery and found a Cars hat and a little backpack of his and he was excited to have them again. So he's wearing his hat and backpack and telling me he's going to school. :) And he just looks so adorable.
Jakey is not being so cute. I woke up at 5am to the sound of him gagging and throwing up. Yuck! Not what a preggo mommy needs. I about threw up but managed to get him cleaned up and sent him to lay on the couch with Hubby for a bit. I didn't get back to sleep and half an hour later he came back upstairs so I decided to at least get a shower since I wasn't getting any more sleep. He seems to be fine now at least, so I hope it was just a fluke and he's not getting a tummy bug or something, especially cuz I've planned to have a bunch of friends and their kids over today and don't want to have to cancel.
I still have a bunch of cleaning to do to get ready for my get together today. The family room needs picked up and vacuumed, bathrooms need a quick clean, and the kitchen needs mopped. Oh, I still need to make Oh Henry Bars, but at least that is quick and easy. :)
Have a wonderful day!

ETA: Well, it got really windy a few minutes after we went out so we had to come in, dirt was being blown in my eyes and I was seriously afraid something would get blown into our yard and hit us, it was sooo windy.
* Dishes, shouldn't be too bad, they haven't piled up yet
* Fold laundry. I really shouldn't put this off so much lol
* Mop kitchen and bathrooms
* Clean playroom (not sure why I bother)
* Make Oh Henry Bars, mmmm
* Clean bathrooms
Tomorrow I might be having some friends over again so I need to get my house cleaned up. I promised to make Oh Henry Bars again too cuz they were such a big hit last time, so I need to get some chocolate chips so I can do that. I mostly need to get the bathrooms clean and the kitchen mopped. And the playroom. It gets so messy so quickly. I need to get some new storage bins for the toys, the boys have destroyed the ones we have by standing on them a lot. Maybe we'll head to the dollar store for that.

This is a picture from last year at the zoo. We went with my friend Michelle and her girls. This peacock was sitting on a roof by the bears and I thought it was too pretty not to get a pic. I think I liked it more than the kids did lol. I love peacocks cuz their feathers are so pretty and this one had it's feathers fanned out all the way making it a great site.
Wanna see more pics of animals? Check out Camera Critters.

I believe this is true. Initial infatuation is what brings people together, the key to staying together is by seeing in that person things that make you love them again and again. My Hubby does things that make me fall in love again all the time. There are little things like when he does dishes (he does them better than I do!) or when he surprises me with candy or flowers or something. Then there are the big things like the first time I saw him holding our boys after they were born, my love multiplied when I saw the love in his face for our boys. I love my Hubby :)

* Make dinner, meatloaf
* Try to nap

I'm going to go throw the boys in the shower to get them cleaned off (they love the shower) then put them down for a nap. Hopefully Jason will nap today, cuz I want to lay down for a bit. Then after naptime I need to get dinner started.

This is a sweet little quote :) I think like most moms I was so happy when my kids first said "Mama". It just tugs at your heart. Jason now calls me Mom and Jakey calls me Mommy. I love it most when I've been gone and I come back and they run to me yelling "Mommy!" and "Mom!" and give me hugs. Nobody in the world gets the same type of love as a mom gets from her kids :)
So, this isn't a living critter, and not one you'd want to see living really lol. But I thought it still counts. Here's my boys under the T-rex statue at the Dinosaur Park a few weeks ago. I was surprised I even got them to sit that close, they were terrified when they first saw the dinosaurs and started crying and screaming at the one inside that moved and made noise. So I was happy to get this pic of them with the T-rex.
You can join in Camera Critters every Sunday too! It's lots of fun.

Name a color you find soothing.
Using 20 or less words, describe your first driving experience.

What material is your favorite item of clothing made out of?
Who is a great singer or musician who, if they were to come to your town for a concert, you would spend the night outside waiting for tickets to see?
- Nobody. I'm way too tired to want to spend the night out for anything lol. No musician is more important than my sleep.
What is the most frequent letter of the alphabet in your whole name (first, middle, maiden, last, etc.)?
- A, there are 4 total.

* Got dressed (so what if it's PJs, at least I'm not in my bathrobe still lol)
* Fed the kids
* Changed diapers
* Unloaded the dishwasher
* Made dinner
* Paid bills
See, that's at least something :D And I am going to do a few loads of laundry. I have to if I want clean towels and something besides PJs to wear tomorrow. Actually I don't even have anymore clean PJs, so if I want to wear anything I better do some laundry lol.
Today's Heads or Tails word is Heads- Tip or Tails- Anything that rhymes with tip.
So let me think, here's some stuff about things rhyming with tip.
Zip- I have a pair of black pants, that I wore yesterday actually, but the zipper is broken. It drives me nuts cuz I have to make sure I wear a shirt long enough to cover it up.
Trip- Jakey always trips when he runs, it's so funny. He gets excited and starts running for something and forgets to watch where he's going. At least he's not as bad as Jason was when he was younger, he always managed to trip right into the edge of the coffee table. Every. Single. Time. Poor kid looked like he'd been beat.
Lip- I'm sitting here watching VeggieTales (why I still have it on after the boys went downstairs to play I have no idea lol) and am reminded of one of their silly songs called "I Love My Lips". It's nice to have a fun cute cartoon I don't mind
Flip- A week or two ago some ladies from church came over as a kind of meet-the-new-lady thing to get to know me better. Jason was telling them how old he and Jakey are. He put up 3 fingers and told them he was three, then told them Jakey was one. Guess which finger he used to show 1? Yep, he flipped them the bird. Good thing they understand little kids don't know any better lol.
Well, that's about all I can think of right now, I better skip to the kitchen and whip up some lunch. Hehe.

This goes along with the saying "Home is where the heart is". Wherever the things you love most are, that is home. For me, as long as I am with my family then no matter where we go, I am home. It's not the place, it's the people. Where is home to you?
My picture is of our cat Stars when she had her kittens last year. It was a surprise for me because I thought it would be another week before she had them, but one morning I went down and found 4 tiny black kittens there (you can't see one in the pic, the runt is under her front leg). We no longer have any of them, but MIL took the runt so we get to see him when we are there. So here's Stars with Devil, Tiger, Junior, and (unseen) Monkey.

The boys weren't too bad. Except for the poop on the bathroom floor and downstairs counter, juice and water and food spilled on the kitchen floor, and all the other messes they make. But really, it wasn't too bad, I guess I had more patience today than normal.
The one good thing about this problem- my house is getting cleaner :D
Tuesday, April 08, 2008
I get to clean the house and keep the kids from making too many messes, so fun day for me too lol. Actually I'd prefer to be here instead of a ride-along, I don't think I'd enjoy it much.
* Take a nap. The boys are laying down now, as soon as they are asleep I'm going to try to nap.
* Clean up family room and vacuum
* Make dinner. I can't even remember what we are having tonight lol.
Not much on my list today. My main concern is getting the family room cleaned up. The kids left some candy on the floor and this morning we had a bit of an ant problem, so I need to get the whole room clean and vacuumed and spray ant killer around. I want to do my yoga dvd, but not going to on my dirty floor with ants. :P

Invent a new flower; give it a name and describe it.
- Um, I have no idea, I'm not good at this kind of thing lol.
Name someone whom you think has a wonderful voice.
- I can't think of someone right now, lots of singers have wonderful voices.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how clean do you keep your car?
How do you feel about poetry?
- I like poetry, sometimes I like to write it.
What was the last person/place/thing you took a picture of?

We have no plans for the day, just hanging out. Sounds like the boys are already messing up the playroom again. It's an impossible job to keep that room clean lol. I do need to go through it and put away some of the toys in the storage room so there isn't so much to make a mess with.
My stomach isn't feeling good so I'm going to go lay on the couch and do nothing for a while. :)

My friend Amanda is having a giveaway for an adorable baby swaddling blanket and gift certificate from Ju Ju Beane Boutique. I'd love to get this very cute swaddle blanket.
No, that is not snow covering my boys and half the bedroom. Apparently Taz has developed a large hole on his face and the boys have enjoyed jumping on him and making the snowy white beads fly out all over the place. And of course when I tried to clean up the boys they ran all through the house with a trail of fluff falling off them, so I have tiny white beads all over the place. Taz has been retired to a kid-free zone, the storage room. I finally got the kids to hold still so I could vacuum most of the styrofoam off them.
It's been a few months since I've joined in Heads or Tails but I figured it was time to jump in. This week's HoT word is Fool.
Seeing as how it is April Fool's Day I'm sure many people will be talking about pranks they've pulled or what they have done to fool others. But not me, I've never been good at April Fool's jokes.
Instead I'm going to tell you about a friend who's birthday is April Fool's Day. And just for fun, let me say that 2 of her children also have that birthday, and one was due that day but came early. I bet when she tells people they say, "Yeah right! April Fool's!" But it is completely true. Quite a coincidence to have a mom and 2 of her kids born on April Fool's Day. :)
