If you're Happy and you know it Leave a Comment!

It was so nice out today that the ice cream truck came by the neighborhood today. i took this pix from my back yard with the zoom. (yeah it's good) it played this really annoying version of if you're happy and you know it.. but the kids were running. you can't see them in the pix b/c i edited it. While it's nice out the ground is still really WET! so it's pretty gross. but the girls enjoyed playing outside regardless. but I've not met a kid that doesn't enjoy it. We even played tag. Did i tell y'all that I Joined Weight Watchers 4 weeks ago? It was really hard to step on that scale the first time. But I've been following their plan and guidelines and it's working. I'm excited. so far I've lost 6.4 pounds!!! Happy Dance! Well last week was trying to get more motion into your week so the plan is to add 3 points of activity to your routine a week. So to why i went on this tangent is b/c the playing tag earned me 1 point. there are only 3 of us sooo it didn't work so well. Beady the destroyer decided she wanted to swing and the bub wanted to dig holes and plant seed. (what seeds?? not sure) While i was out there i sewed in some ends to a hat I finished making for my friends new baby. OK so he wont' be wearing it this year as it's spring and warm weather is upon us. not to mention it's a little BIG.. here's the destroyer modeling it for you.. she's just like her dad with the funny faces!

Pam, I hope you like it. t
hat's all your going to see until I come to visit FRIDAY!! (said in a sing song voice)
So F
riday the Bub was part of a speech meet for her school. She memorized one of Aesop's fables, The lion and the mouse. Then she recited it and got graded on it.. she got an excellent ribbon. They weren't graded against each other but only on their public speaking and memorization. she's decided that next year she's going to memorize some poetry. LOL. I'm so proud of her!!

I've been wanting to write this for a while now.. I have been trying to keep the house looking better and i just run out of time. but I'm working on posting more often. If I'm not around much leave me a comments and I'll make sure to update my blog.
Anyways i also finished the Bub's apron last week. Sorry it's kinda a dark pix but it was night time.(the only alone time and crafty time i get.) She loves it and Beady the destroyer has been hounding me for her apron... SIGH. I'm working on it! Just a little slow! And b/c you can't bring the camera out with out the girls posing.. Here they are in all their teethy smiles.
so that's it.. you're up to date on my life. Leave me a comment and LMK what is going on with you!

Beady SO looks like her daddy, thats what i thought when i saw the pix and hadn't read it yet. hehe too cute! I can't believe how big she is getting, wow. I love the apron, I wish I had one as nice as that. Maybe i need to learn how to sew. How did you learn and not me?! hmmm Oh and tell bub congrats on her ribbon! thats too cool!
Yeah for you on the 6.4lbs! thats awesome! I should really start doing something, its been 6 weeks, and I'm all healed... I just need some motivation. Ok so i'll stop writing a novel... take care, love you!

That apron is adorable! I love it!

Girl, you never cease to amaze me!

Say, I have an idea, I haven't told Jessica yet, but I think we should load up in her van this summer and drive over to you for a visit? What do you think? 5 kids, 2 adults, sounds like fun, doesn't it?
