Dear Old Man Winter,

Please leave Virginia alone for a while. My poor hubby was in his parking lot at work this morning when he hit a huge patch of ice, as did the co-worker behind him. Thankfully no one was hurt! Apparently you thought all the work we did this weekend clearing out the mess you left us wasn't enough. Maybe you could also send out a note to businesses on how to properly clean their parking lots when they expect their employees to arrive on time in icy conditions.

Please Pray

My pregnant sister-in-law had some bleeding this morning and headed for the hospital. They told her she had an infection and that the baby was ok. She is not in the clear however and now we sit and play the waiting game, praying that her body does not abort the baby. Please, if you are so inclined, pray that this is just a hiccup in the pregnancy and that everything will be fine from here on out.

Dear Father Time,

Just a quick note to ask you if it would be possible to start having rollover minutes? You know the cell phone companies use it to add extra minutes to their time when you have some leftover. This time of year I could definitely use a few extra especially when there are other times of the year when I don't need as many. If you could make this happen, say today, I would greatly appreciate it.

Many Thanks,
Crazy Momma

Rockin' Weekend

This weekend we headed to Frederick, Maryland to see the Imagination Movers! An early 3rd birthday present for the kids. We left yesterday so we wouldn't have to deal with the stress of driving the at least 2 1/2 hours both ways in one day. When we got checked in to the hotel daddy and the kiddos took a little dip in the indoor pool, which the kids and daddy greatly enjoyed. Then we got cleaned up and headed out to dinner at Macaroni Grill...YUM! Macaroni Grill, will you please come and open in Richmond, Va??? Pretty please?? :)

Today we got up, got ready and ventured out to get some lunch before the show. I think that everyone in the restaurant was going to the show because there wasn't a grown up in there without a child.

Once we got to the show we got a few overly priced souvenirs and settled into our seats waiting for the concert to start. I must tell you if your kids like the Imagination Movers this show is a great one to see! The kids and the adults all had a great time listening to the music. I would definitely take the kids to see them in concert again. I shockingly got a lot of pictures this weekend, so here are just a few.

Halloween 09

So these pictures are a little overdue, but at least it isn't Christmas yet! HA! So this is the first year the doodles went trick or treating and they loved it! We actually went trunk or treating at two nearby churches and I think that this will be a continued tradition. It meant a lot less worrying for mommy about weirdos and it probably took us a lot less time too.

Instead of spending $50+ on costumes that they won't wear for long I decided to make their costumes and I think they turned out pretty well. They were PB&J this year and they can actually wear everything again so big plus for me. You can't see it in the pictures but their hats have jelly and peanut butter jars on them. They were a huge hit while we were out so I think I am going to continue with some kind of this and that theme the next couple of years.

Happiness Tuesday

This idea came from Ginger at The Small Moments. She actually spent the whole month of September making posts about the things that made her happy that day. This challenge forced her to find something to be happy about everyday even when the day had been less than desirable. To keep it going she has decided to post a happiness post every Tuesday and I have decided to join in. :)

So since today was one of those less than desirable days; lots of temper tantrums, lots of grouchiness and lots of just not getting along I think this a perfect day to do it. So here are the things that I found happiness in today:

* This conversation:
Ella "I love you Mommy"
Me "I love you too, Ella"
Ella "I love you Logan"
Logan "I love you too, Ella" - Just melts my heart :)

* Fresh, crisp, white sheets on my bed are screaming my name along with a glass of wine (thanks Sally!).

You Know You Are A Mom When...

The only song you can seem to sing as you are cleaning the house is the theme song to the Jonas show :)

Honest Scrap

I was nominated by my lovely friend Amy-Jo for the honest scrap award, and in my true fashion this comes about a week late (sorry). The idea behind this is to share 10 things about yourself that other bloggers may not already know and then nominate 7 bloggers for this as well. So without further ado this is ME. :)

1. I am technologically challenged. I haven't always been this way though, only in the last 3 years has my knowledge of all things technical gone down hill. Hmmm, wonder what could have happened to cause that?! Seriously though, sometimes I look at my cell phone and try to remember how to use it which is extremely sad seeing as I used to work for a cell phone company.

2. I am a napper. This also began about 3 years ago and I haven't been able to shake it since then. 3 or 4 times a week I am snoozing right along when the kiddos are, even though I have a ton of stuff I should be doing. It does, however, make mommy much more enjoyable for afternoon and evening.

3. I stink at play. Really, my kids always want me to play cars or blocks or whatever and I get down on the floor and am bored within minutes. Thankfully my husband is great at this and makes up for where I lack. Sometimes my mommy guilt kicks in and I feel awful about it but I have managed to divert them with books so I think it makes up for it.

4. I am the lollipop lady. I know you are probably picturing some old lady walking around with a bunch of hard candies right now but at any given time I usually have about 10 dum-dums in my purse and countless rappers. These little beauties are what helps me get through a shopping trip with both kids in tow.

5. I pretty much live in t-shirts and shorts. Unless I have errands to run or an appointment to go to my attire is just that. After the shower my hair usually goes up in a ponytail and it stays that way the rest of the day. Oh, and I don't put a stitch of makeup on on those days either. Sometimes I feel sorry for the delivery and mail people that see me when I answer the door.

6. I am ready for the kiddos to go to preschool. Is that horrible to say? It is still another year away but I am looking forward to the time that I will get during those few hours a week to run errands and work on jewelry. I'm sure that I will miss them terribly when the time comes but for now I am looking forward to the future.

7. I just recently bought tickets to go to my first concert in years and about had a breakdown when I couldn't order them online or over the phone. Finally I got through though and now in November I will sitting a few rows back from these guys.....

Oh yes, I know you are jealous! HA! My first concert in years is the Imagination Movers! This is part of the kids birthday present and I think I am looking forward to it more than anyone, can't wait to see the look on the kids faces :)

8. I am really bad about taking pictures. My mom can attest to this. There are so many cute things that the kids do on a regular basis and I am always to scatter brain to get it on camera. Doesn't this usually only happen when you are on your third child?!

9. I worry a LOT! Sometimes about the most ridiculous things too. It actually can be debilitating sometimes because all that worrying can make it hard to sleep at night. I am working on it though and trying to let the little things go as much as possible.

10. I have a slight inkling to want another baby. Well, it is a little more than slight but I know that it is not the right thing for our family right now. Plus the possibility of having another set of multiples is a little scary so I will just wait for my brother and sister-in-law to have babies and hopefully that will satisfy my wants. :)

So now here are my 7 nominees:

Long Overdue

I know it has been a long, LONG time since I last posted but things have been very busy around here. Between a little stay cation (in Lynchburg), to the hubby getting a new car (thanks to cash for clunkers), to a 30th birthday, to working on replacing our entire deck which is 38'x13', phew, weekdays have been for resting.

So here are a bunch of pictures from the last few weeks. :)

Pictures from the drive-thru safari...hilarious!!

There aren't a lot of pictures from here because I mostly took video and my brain is to fried to even try to figure that one out

Basically you are driving through a huge piece of farmland with your windows down feeding animals, there were deer, Watusi, llamas, camels, pot belly pigs, basically anything that wouldn't really bite. These animals were hilarious though because they would try to take the bucket out of your hand and for those not holding the bucket (me and dad) we almost peed our pants laughing at my mom.

These idiots are actually a mom and dad and what you can't see is that they are both holding a child in their lap. Yep, they went through their sunroof to do this. I wonder what kind of Evil Knievel kids they are going to grow to be.

Really it was not safe to do this, there were massive hills covered in gravel. I just wanted to throw something at these people.

Here we are at Amazement Square where a good time was had by all

Especially daddy!


Riding a tractor

Playing in the chicken coup

Milking a cow that actually dispenses water

I don't even want to know how they refill this thing!

Riding a horse, doesn't he look thrilled?!

Found an egg!!

Daddy's 30th birthday cake that the kiddos and mommy decorated...Happy Belated Birthday honey!
