Taylor is so cute, I had to post these 2 pictures, one is her in her new glasses and the other is her giving me a teenager "look". She is so funny!!

Evan is 6!!!!

My little boy is now 6, I don't know where the time goes sometimes. With the kids getting older I sometimes have that "mom guilt" that I didn't do enough! Did I play enough with them? Did I read enough to them? Did I talk enough to them?? I guess I will never know, but I do know that I have some pretty great kids and I am blessed!

Crystal Light "Focus"!!

Funny story here. Anyone that knows me, knows I have no trouble at all sleeping! I am a great sleeper and it is very rare that I will have trouble with it. Well, Friday, I bought some flavored drink mixes at Kroger that were on Clearance, I was pretty excited because I basically only drink water and I really love those flavor packs. Well, yesterday I had 3 waterbottles full of the crystal light water, the name was Focus. I really paid no attention to it, in fact I put 2 packages in one bottle of water at one time. I had a great day, plenty of energy! I was watching the grammy's and couldn't sit still so I cleaned out my drawers, cleaned out my closet, folded some clothes etc. Well about 10:30 I told Josh that I had to get to sleep! My alarm goes off at 4:45 am so I was pushing it! WEll, he dozed off and there I lay WIDE AWAKE!!!! I could not figure out what was wrong with me, I never do this!!Anyway, the last time I looked at the clock it was around 1:45 am (leaving me 3 hours of sleep). I actually woke to my alarm quite alert, started fixing me another bottle of water and just happen to look at the box. Well what do you know??? Each package of that crystal light had 40 mg of caffine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( just a bit of info, a diet mountain dew has
36 mg's of caffeine in each serving)I don't drink caffeine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let's just say that I taught the best step class today as well as had a very fast run. I have been going like the energizer bunny all day long. So here is a picture of the box, I will sell each package for $10.00 if you would like to have one!!

Spelling Bee fashion queen!

So Emma won 2nd place in her school spelling bee so she went and competed in the County spelling bee Saturday. She may not have won the spelling bee but I think she was mostly concerned with the fashion award (if there was one)! She is so funny, she did a great job!!

4 eyes!

Taylor has now joined the world of the 4 eyes! Welcome daughter!!

Christmas Time!!

We had a great Christmas week. Family is the most important thing here in this life and we were so happy to be surrounded by family. Taylor made the comment that her abs hurt from laughing so much. IT was another great time full of memories. I love my family and I am grateful for them. Here are a few pictures to share some of our fun.

Christmas Eve pajama party!! Every
year they get new jammies.

A little uno action and me trying out the timer on the camera! I had to run jump in the shot. I even got the dog!!

Evan's new scooter and helmet and of course Emma's new clothes!! Taylor and her new hoodie!! She loves those things!

We went bowling with my dad and his wife and my two brothers and my mom. We had so much fun.

The highlight of the trip for us is playing texas hold'em ( no real money involved) every night until unreasonable hours. Taylor really gets into it, she actually beat everyone last night, it made her day.

All in all it was a great week.. They all left today, it is quiet around here. About an hour after we dropped my 2 brothers off at the airport they called and said that the planes were cancelled and they had to stay one more night, happy birthday to me!!! They will be here tomorrow for my birthday. The party still goes on.

I hope everyone had a great christmas!! Happy new year.

I saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause!

The other day Emma asked Josh what he would do if he saw me kissing santa clause, kind of a funny question but that is Emma for ya! Anyway, Josh came Friday to be santa for our fitness center party for the kids, and what do you know, there was a picture of mommy kissing santa on our computer when Emma got home that day. It was pretty funny.
