When we go to Papa's house the kids like to take turns driving the "tractor" a.k.a. his riding lawn mower. This last October was the first time the boys got to drive it all by themselves! They were a little nervous at first and JJ freaked out when it was time to stop because he couldn't reach the breaks and he thought he was going to crash into the garage!! They looked like such big boys driving all on their own!!
The kids spent their V-day $ from Grammie & Papa to go with Daddy and see Alvin and the Chipmunks, the Squeakuel, they also bought their favorite movie treats-Icees. The boys always come home with colored mouths because they usually enjoy their drinks more than the movie!!
JD was going crazy wanting my pop and kept asking for more and more
Sissy was also chugging on my pop and JJ was eating all the candy he could shove in his face (with some not making it, obviously).
One of our resolutions for this year is to eat healthier so we are NOT eating fast food (anything with a drive-thru is out with the exception of Subway), candy, or drinking pop. Most of you who know me know this will be REALLY hard, I have a HUGE sweet-tooth and love sugar. Luckily, baked goods like brownies, cookies, etc are still ok, as well as ice cream-I couldn't just go cold turkey!! We have made it a month and a half now and I ocassionally go through withdrawals but for the most part we're all doing great. These are some pics of us on New Year's Eve "disposing" of the candy we had left in the house and my good friend brought me over a caffeine-free diet Dr. Pepper (If I would have known those existed I might not have made the pop rule!!) Since Dec. 31 we have been good but I'm not sure how long I can hold out!!! The kids were way hyper because of all the sugar!!
s u I've been wanting a change for my hair for a few weeks now and I decided I'm going SHORT. I was scared and nervous before I got there but it was even worse when the girl who was cutting my hair was even trying to talk me out of it cause it was so short but I wanted to do it so off it came. I meant to take before and after pics but I forgot so it's only after. I think I like it, it's a really big change for me so we'll see if I get used to it!!!
When the kids get bored, they get creative. After church one Sunday the boys got in their jammies and that wasn't good enough so they put their suit coats back on and then to top it all off they got, thankfully, clean underwear and turned into flying, web slinging, save-the-daySUPERHEROS.
