Things to do

As I am preparing to go back to work (I only have one week left! After 3 years this should be interesting!) I have been marking off tons of things on my to do list that I know I will not feel like doing once I go back. One of the things on my to do list is to go through Bella's old toys and baby clothes and do something with them. This is something I have been putting off as indicated by the above photo and the missing drive to just get it done. SO here it is all over the floor.

And the "After" picture. Can you believe we had a half bag of just happy meal toys? Disgusting I know. I was going to donate them but most of it was just plain junk so I threw it out. Recyclers everywhere are cringing. You can actually completely shut the lid now. What a concept. Now on to the playroom toy box (which isn't nearly as bad) and all of her baby clothes. UGH!

And finally here is a sweet one of her "feeding" her baby. Her baby's name is Bella (naturally) and she is feeding her Mickey Mouse ears that came off her headphones. Tasty.

I saw a church sign today that said:

"Florida is cooler than Hell"

What do you think??

VBS 09

So this is what we have been doing this week! Vacation Bible School 09. We had anywhere from 13-16 kids each night for 5 nights. It was a lot of fun but exhausting! Ethan got to go with Bella for the first two nights but then he went to Pennsylvania for the rest of the week. Bella had lots of fun and is doing great with the potty but has become a bear with bedtime/naptime. She refuses to sleep in her bed and when she does we have to lay down with her. If we fall asleep with her and leave she ends up in our bed a short time later. I do love lovin on her but my back is paying for it every morning having to accommodate to her. I know we have created this monster but now I am over it. I wish I could get Mike on the same page...

Right now she is running a slight fever I am guessing from being around all the kids this week so we will see how that turns out.

In other news, I got the job! It is at AT&T Mobility and I start July 7. I am happy and sad all at the same time but I think it is time for both Bella and me. Wish me success!

1st sunburn

My poor baby :(

Artist hard at work
Happy artist

MY kids
Aren't they adorable???

Ok so Bella got her first sunburn this week. Heather was going to the beach with Ethan and Emma and since I had so much to do at home I opted out. She offered to take Bella and since Bella doesn't enjoy housework I slathered her up with 50 SPF (twice beleive it or not) and sent her on her way. Unfortunately, you couldn't get her out of the water so most of the sunblock washed off and they were in a convertible Jeep on the way home. She kept insisting it didn't hurt until the next day so I gave her some Tylenol and Aloed her up. She took it amazingly well. I hate being sunburnt, its so uncomfortable. I hated it even more for her. Anyway she is healing fine with a little peeling. Word of advice besides the obvious, make sure you cover the scalp and the BOTTOM of feet! Both of Bella's were peeling and I was sure I covered everything with her ears and back of her neck. Who knew? Well, I didn't.

Puggles graduation

Lisa, Katie, Cameron


Ethan, Tucker, garrett, Jenna, Kaytlin,Joe, Gage, Jenna


Stephen got the most pie

See I was a good sport

Well our 4 year old Puggles graduated this year and we lost a good part of our class. To celebrate the occasion we decided to let them slap us in the face with Whip Cream pies. Whose idea was that again??? Anyway, we let them pick who they wanted to get so I got it about 4 times, same for Lisa. Dianna somehow got off with like 2. Stephen, well we lost count. All the kids thought it was just great to get him! The younger kids didn't seem to like it, I think it scared them but the older kids were all for it. My sweet Bella didn't want to do it either (ah that's my girl) Congrats Puggles-Eli, Tucker, Joe, Gage, Bryce, Bradley, Ethan, Abby, and Kaitlyn-we will miss you.
