Baby Show photo shoot

Morgan County Fair is at the end of July, my kids have only been one time... Anyways, so I was thinking about putting Bodie Kale in the baby show this year. I have to register by July 10th, and send in a wallet snap shot photo. I tried to get a good one tonight, and this is what I got... Seriously the last picture cracks me up... That is his mean face and I get it alot :) He has quiet a personality!

Blizzards ~ Anyone?

Hailee got this DQ Blizzard Maker for Chrristmas, and we just now are trying it out... So we got all the ingrediants in and turned the knob...

turned it for 10 minutes....

It made two small blizzards in 10 minutes. She loved it though. Of course the neighbor boys were over so we had to make another batch for them to share. :)

Other than that we have just been hanging out at home, playing outside. The pictures will tell you what the kids have been busy doing....

Yep that is about all they have done. :) Hope you are all having a GREAT weekend too!

Father's Day

Jesse is such an Amazing dad to our three kids. Ask them, they will tell you their dad is the BEST!! :)

Father's Day was Sunday so we started out with making him breakfast in bed!! It consisted of bacon, eggs, toast, and sweet tea to drink... And the kids had fun taking it to him and waking him up.
Then he got to open a little gift that we got him! (We usually don't do gifts, but he needed what we got him since I lost his other ones... ) The kids watched him open his card, and his new Nike Sandals!
Later that day after lunch, we watched DADDY DAYCARE. Then spent the afternoon outside cleaning the mini barn. That was a project itself!!
For supper we grilled steaks, and had this yummy cake that we made for Father's Day!

We hope all you Father's out there had a wonderful day :)

Rainy Saturday

How did you spend your Saturday? Well it was rainy here, so in the AM hours we just laid around and relaxed a little bit.

When it finally stopped raining, I took the kids out to play while Jesse drug everything out of the mini barn. He is determined to get rid of junk and get it organized with our pool stuff, but in the middle of it all he got called to work... So now everything is sitting in our back yard..

The kids and I are getting ready to make supper now, so we are onto our next adventure! Hope your all having a great weekend!

A big deal!!

Something BIG is happening at our house this week... okay well big for Jesse and I. Starting Sunday night we decided it was time for the kids to sleep in their own beds. So Hailee has been in her own room and her own bed since Sunday night! Bodie has slept in his toddler bed in our room since then also.... We are super proud of them, and told them if they keep it up then they will get a small treat :) This is a BIG DEAL!!

Yay, to finally getting a good nights rest without getting kicked a million times, or pushed off the bed. ha ha. It is also so sweet to go into the rooms and see them all snuggled up, sound asleep in their beds. I just love all three of my kids :)


Last weekend, Bill and Cindy wanted the kids for the weekend~so we took them up on that offer! Friday, we met Cindy in Spencer to drop the kids off (yes all three of them). They were excited to go and get to spend the weekend with mamaw, papaw, and the cousins Hayden and Colin.
After leaving Spencer, Jesse and I headed to Bloomington for a little date night. We ate at Olive Garden, then went to the movies to watch BRIDESMAIDS. We laughed hard at that movie...
Saturday we went back to Bloomington for a little bit of shopping (needed some clothes, and a trip to Sam's Club) then did a late lunch at Outback before heading home. When we got home we tried to catch up on stuff around the house. Then we got in the pool. It was def. quiet around here, and I did miss my kids. Cindy made sure she texted lots of pictures of all the fun stuff the kids did like tractor rides, fishing, and swimming in the pond!
Sunday morning, Jesse and I got up and headed to Odon to get the kids then to help celebrate Dakota's 8th birthday!!

On our way home the kids slept the whole ride! They were so worn out. This week they have been playing like CRAZY!!

Before and After... or during

Those of you that are close to me, know that I have been changing my eating habits and trying to get healthy. Going on 5 months now, I have cut out all sweets and eating lean meats and lots of fresh vegtibles. I have been following the Medifast plan. I am not going to lie~ It hasn't always been easy but the feeling is so worth it. I have changed in looks, I have so much more energy, and it helps when your kids and husband tell you how beautiful you look and how proud of you they are... I have lots of support!! I am determined to loose the weight and be healthy :) I reached my goal weight, but set a new goal and I am 6 lbs away from it. Just wanted to share some after and before pictures with you :)

This is me today 6/10/2011

Okay so now for the before pictures... These are from June 2010....

30 / Pool time

Okay so on the 29th of May, I turned the BIG 3-0.... I don't really feel any different so I guess that is a good thing:) Jesse had worked so hard all week, and he worked on Saturday so on my birthday all I wanted was some family time :) We stayed home all day, and it was so nice. Jesse and the kids baked me a nice birthday cake all by theirselves, and it was YUMMY! I enjoyed one small piece;) Then later we set the pool up so it could fill up, which the kids couldn't hardly wait on.... And when the kids were in bed, we watched a movie together. It was a GREAT day!!

We are on summer break with our homeschooling :) We will start back probably in July but we are taking a good month off to enjoy this warm weather!! And here is what our summer will consist of.....

We have been swimming like crazy! The kids just can't get enough of the water. I told them we probably wont swim today because we all are a little sunburned and they are a little mad... As soon as they wake up they want to go outside and play so we are always on the go, but I love it... And let me tell you, they have been going to bed early and sleeping good because they are so wore out :) Hope you are all enjoying your summer break!!
