Date night

I think the last time we went out without our kids was when we went to Wicked 3 months ago. So we got a babysitter and went over to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. They have shops, music, food, a water show and of course the casino. As we were walking through the casino to get outside I put a dollar in the Wheel of Fortune slot and got back 45 bucks. It paid for our night out as well as the babysitter so it was a fun night and best of all it was free!!! Hopefully my luck can carry over when I go to The Price is Right in a couple weeks.
p.s. I'm not pregnant, its just a bad shirt.

Not a good day.........

As I was searching my house today for quarters to do laundry, swearing under my breath because I cant stand not having my own washer and dryer, of course it escalates into thinking about going grocery shopping and having to live on the sixth floor trying to haul groceries up by myself with two kids. Well after much searching I finally found enough quarters in the kids cash register to wash Kennedy's "too much to drink the night before" bedding. As I walked outside my front door I walked out to this............. And then I realized how much I really do love it here. I love my house and cant think of anywhere else I would rather be going to school. (I'm just glad it wasn't pouring rain when I walked outside, that would have been the topper .)Top: view from my balcony

Ariel has fins???

For those of you who know my little Kennedy and know how nervous she is about EVERYTHING this is probably the closest thing to moving mountains for her. She went from not even putting her face in the water because she "didn't want to get her hair wet" to THIS????? She is so proud of herself and now insists that we go to the pool everyday. Way to go Kennedy I'm so proud of you, you did it!

My sick boy....

He had such a high fever for about 3 days with no cough, runny nose or anything. I don't know what it was but all he wanted to do was to watch his "Monster show." I felt so bad for him but I did enjoy the fact that for those 3 days all he did was lay around. I cant get him to sit for more than 2 minutes a day.

Kangaroo Zoo

While in Utah my aunt and I took our kids to a place called Kangaroo Zoo. They have tons of bounce houses and glow in the dark mini golf. The kids loved it and it was so nice to sit and have them entertained for hours.


We went to Utah a few weeks ago to see two new babies. One on Neal's side and one on my side. Neal had finals so we left for the week. It was a pretty short trip considering how long the flight is to get there. I do have to say my kids were pretty good on the flight. These pictures were taken just before Kennedy tried to lift Kyson to sit him on the tray, the tray folded up, she dropped him and he landed all the way under the guys seat in front of her. So I have him crying because he's hurt and her crying because she feels so bad. But after 5 1/2 hours (and thats the non-stop flight) we made it!!!


Unfortunately there isn't much of a before picture due to the fact she really doesn't have much hair to cut. My poor little girl wants hair more than anything but as luck would have it my little boy has 3 times the amount of hair at 1 year than she does. This is her first hair cut at the age of 4 1/2. My aunt and I were joking about putting your baby's first haircut in their baby book, but her first haircut will have to go in her Kindergarten book. We had to cut the ends off and stack it a little in the back so maybe it looks like we are going for a short hairstyle. It looks cute on her and makes her fine and thin hair look a little thick.


This is the best picture I could get After the haircut
