Crazy Cat Lady

I don't see anything wrong with this. This cat eats way neater than my two children. I feel a challenge coming on w/ my Maelin.

Living Room/Den

I am not completely happy with how everything turned out and really couldn't pick a theme for our front room but I have a better idea what I'll do differently next year :) I still need to post pics of the kitchen & dining table. Our front room doesn't really have a theme except for maybe poinsettias. I'll stick with it for next yr and hopefully will find some great stuff after the holidays. The den is Santa themed. Not really crazy for Santas but my parents sent me quite a bit of Santa stuff in the previous years I had to use it. In the future I may use Snowmen...I really like them and if they don't look too Christmasy then I can leave them up til after January. Hope you enjoy!

Re enlisted

Dec. 11, 2005 I tearfully kissed my boyfriend goodbye not knowing what our future held. 5 years later we are now married,lived in two different states and have a family. I am so proud of him because today he re enlisted in the military. It only took a few seconds but it has made a big difference for the next 4 yrs. Kids and I were there to show our support. We love you Ken!

Never Grow Up

I am so loving this song. Its kinda sad :(

Just for fun

You can get up to three extra entries besides just commenting/following her blog. I thought this would be fun to give it a try and if I win then a free blog make over!

Band concert videos

This beginner band consists of 3rd and 4th graders. I wish I had been able to get a better focus and to actually see Matt. Hubby and I are so proud of him and how far he has come since he first picked up the viola.

Matthew's 1st band concert!

Matt had his first Christmas band concert this past Tuesday (12/7) evening. He did great and it took me back to my first concert. I can't wait to hear them at the end of the yr for Spring. I took several videos (these will come soon) and pictures but Matt was being blocked by a little blonde head. Hope you enjoy!!

Never ask a toddler to pick up their own toys...

This is Mady. Every morning she feels the need to take out most of her toys from her toy box and have me step all over them. So, one morning this past week I decided to finally ask her to please pick up her toys. And she did...

Mady vids

I had been meaning to post these videos but never got around to upload them. So enjoy!

This was late summer when Mady decided to try mine and Ken's lunch AFTER she had already had her lunch.

Sometime during the fall Ken hooked up the drums to the Xbox so she could play around with them. She loves making music.

Big mistake!

I let Mady try Trix and she loved it...how can I not be surprised. I let her have a few after her breakfast but after she finished she kept asking for more. I hid the box back in the pantry and hope she has forgotten all about the cereal.
