playing catch up

This is my sweet Sarah playing with the only Dora toy she owns....See how sweet she is, she is sweet enough to give you a tooth ache.

Now sweet Sarah will show you what dora really* carries in her backpack! LOL Lets all sing "backpack, backpack....backpack, backpack..."

A few weeks ago Em was invited to a Christmas party at the park where she volunteers. The theme was 50's. They were so creative in decorating!! They made the tables into cars at a drive in. Cool!
Here are the fuzzy dice hanging from the rear view mirror.
and the drive in speaker.

Records were hanging everywhere...
Here is Emily playing paddle ball. She was pretty good at it.
Here she is hula hooping. she was "really" good at that! She actually won the hula hoop contest and won 5 tickets for the prize drawing. Unfortunately none of those tickets got her a prize
The party was a lot of fun. As we walked in the door we were given our movie ticket (schedule of events) and a box of movie theater candy. I choose snowcaps. :o) They served us popcorn while we watched "Attack of the Killer Shrews" For dinner we had hot dogs/burgers with coleslaw, chips and pickles. After dinner the shake shop opened up and we had shakes and a belly ache. LOL It was so much fun! I was glad Emily asked me to go along. Emily and i don't always get to do stuff like this. It was alot of fun! :o)

COOKIES!!

Sarah and I have been baking! We made peanut butter with kisses, sugar cookies, brownie bites with peanut butter cups, choc covered pretzels, choc covered peanuts and choc covered marshmallow. (belly ache...)


We haven't gotten to the white choc yet....heath bar cookies or choc chip.....belly ache....

Have you hear the news!?

This house now officially has not one but TWO teenagers in it! Yes, it is true Jacob turned 13 today. Is this going to be good or bad? Hmmm....


Jacob was born this day at Langley Air Force Base hospital in Virginia. He was induced for many reasons...1) The Dr's (since i saw which ever one was available) could never agree on a due date. 2) His weight was bigger than they liked. 3) dh's ship was going out to sea and he jumped some chain of commands to stay behind. It was very important for this baby to be born before the ship returned!!! He was a sweet baby, and cute too. His proud big sister just adored him!! Yes, she even LOVED him!!! lol Over all his is a good kid. He is a lot like me. On the sensitive side. :o) Poor kid! lol Happy Birthday Jacob!!! :O)

A vaction memory i almost forgot to share

I had forgotten that i wanted to share this....
(computer time is limited since we have 4 of us that currently share one computer)
One day at Mandalay Bay, we went off to swim. We always sat by the kiddie section of the pool so i could keep an eye on the younger ones mostly and still see the bigger kids. On our way to our seats, we noticed a bunch of trash cans on the stage area. We had watched workers in previous days preparing the stage area for various Latin stars that were attending the awards show that weekend. Today we got to watch "Stomp" practicing for their show! It was so cool! We were so close and we had an excellent view, with the exception that we were behind them. That didn't matter much since they jumped around and stuff and were never facing one direction the entire time.
Emily happened to leave her camera in the room that day, but i just happened to have my new camera in my purse! :o) Since that was one of the important requirement for my new camera! ;o) She took tons of pictures...but on this computer i cant seem to find them...
So my new camera isn't purple (which was another requirement) but poor dh couldn't find any place that had purple ones in stock (guess other women also used my important requirements) He did find my second choice in colors though....Pink
