What was I thinking???

I'm not sure what I was thinking today............[no comments there]. I took 6 kids w/me to see the movie Wall*E... A friend met me there w/her son, her daughter was already w/me. To top things off, since I was half way to the store, they all went to Cubs w/me.. All in all, they were wonderful, and as we were passing Wendy's they talked me into getting ice cream... The poor guy on the other end who had to make sure it was all correct....--at the end we got an extra frosty out of it... I bet they were happy to see us leave... Next week, or later this week, I asked the same kids if they wanted to go to the museum w/us.. Of course, I did not hear anyone say NO... [Just liked the picture]....

It's June??

Man, I can not believe it's June.... Let's see... First Q is off camping for the week, by himself!! We have been busy w/movies, swimming ---a few times---the water is very cold!! Last week I took the kids camping, yes it was in a tent... When I get the pictures onto the computer, I'll post them.
Today was a fun day... Skyler thought that since we had to run to two places it would be fun to take the dogs.. Well, after the event, she has now decided that the dogs should stay at home... =-) We took them into Petsmart, WHAT FUN!!! NOT!!! Simon whined every time he saw another dog, and Ginger pulled Skyler through the store too...

Things that make me say hmmmmmmmmmmm..

Here are a few things in my life that have me thinking...........
1. Someone calls my house, and says 'you're home'......... Hmm.. where would I be? It just made me smile..

2. My child starts trying all sorts of new foods!! And actually liking them!! [I'm thinking is this my child??]

3. I'm at my Doctors apt. and their [the Doctors'] cell phone rings... I'm thinking are they going to answer it?? The Doc. says that she's not going to, but, then before you know it, they tell you they have to get it. I'm thinking they have a note up saying you should turn your phone off.

4. I was told at work to do a credit announcement [which if you go in my store, you hear this every 5 mins.]. After telling my boss that I really did not want to say it, they got their way, and before I could even finish the speech, I was laughing so much I gave up........ After this I was told I do not have to give the announcement EVER AGAIN!!!!!!! [boy, I know how to get out of doing anything].=-)

5. and the last thing.........Never in my life have I've ever been called this, but, Sat. night I was told I was a 'Princess'.........

March 31

pictures are from 2 years ago..... I'm bad.......... LOL

Last week was spring break for the kids. Easter was a fun day!! We had fun coloring eggs and finding the baskets!!---yeah, should of took pictures. We had the biggest snowflakes ever one min. and sun the next. Monday Skyler was sick, but, by Wed. we all headed up to Madison and had a wonderful time up there. I think my mom found out that cooking is not my thing. Bingo turned out to fun for Q, as for that kid won!!! Sat. I took Skyler to High school musical on ice, it was a fun time. Q spend time w/his friend--he wasn't sure if he wanted to go w/us. =-) Today, Q woke up sick w/a fever. All I can say is that I hope next Monday is not our turn to get sick.. There's another story I would like to share, but, I was told by this person that I can not..........

Spring is in the air!! How can I tell, you ask?? Well, today was the first day that Simon went down to the creek!!!!!!!! The sad thing, is that he whined as he went into P. yard...

I'm really not sure where the month of Feb. went!! I must of blinked and it was gone!! We had our school carnival---Rock the House, and it went very well.. Loved seeing smiles on the kids faces and they got to run around w/balloons.. For the last few weeks, Q has been asking me to take him roller skating, so today we broke down and took them.--although, I'm wondering who did most of the skating???---- They each got to bring a friend, and one of them is spending the night w/us. The kids do not have school tomorrow, so Scott will take the morning off and I will take the afternoon shift. Today it was really warm, in the 60's... Not sure what tomorrow will be, but, we enjoyed it today just the same.

Christmas at our house!

I have to say that my favorite thing this Christmas was to see my kids open their gifts--or gift.. They each wanted a DS, and have been saving their $, actually w/Christmas $ they got, they just had enough to get it the day after... Anyway, we went out in Nov. to get these gifts for them, and loved watching their faces!! We then wrapped in a few boxes, and added different things to each box, to throw them off.. It worked you should have heard Q talk about what he got --or thought he got...

My weekend...

My little angels today both talked me into having a friend spend the night. So, now it's mid-night, and I can still hear them up... And I'm ready for bed. ---LOL, it sucks to get old.. =-) Actually they have been very good!! If it was warmer, then we could send them outside.. But, w/it only getting up to 8, it's hard to get them to go out. Have to share this picture w/you.. Thought it turned out good..

Wonder what I do a work????

I'm thinking that I have way too much fun at work!!! No, really this was taken at the end of the night.... We were thinking of warm places... Good thing my boss wasn't around.... Good thing I do not get paid much... LOL

Christmas at Grandpa's and Nana's

Dec. 26th, after work we headed up to Grandpa's and Nana's for Christmas. We had a wonderful time up there. Quentin was excited about his watch, and so was Rich for that matter. Nana talked about big clocks when she was down her.. Well, anyone who knows me, knows that I love clocks.. So, guess what she got?? She had this wonderful idea----which I may do sometime---is to fill a wall full of clocks......................!!!!!!!!!!! And for some reason I'm still late to work.. Just do not get it...LOL.. Looking at the picture, I relized that I need to have a kid in front of me from now on..

Christmas at Grandma's....

Me, Q, Grandma, Skyler and Scott... Grandma, Quentin and Skyler..

Dec. 23rd we headed over to Grandma's house.. It was a great time over there too.. And what a delicious meal, plus, lots of goodies.. =-) Now, I relized w/the way that we set the camera up for these pictures did help me much.... But, loved them anyway..

Christmas at my parents...

Mom and Dad... Rena, Robert and Ryan...

People are really busy...... Dad, Timmy, Kathryn and April

Christina and her little girl.. Too sweet!!!


Renae and Brit

Ok, since I got some of the pictures posted... I'm going to keep going.. We got to my parents house 12/21 and celebrated Christmas w/everyone on the 22ND. It was a wonderful time, with a total of 26 people---sorry if I did not get every ones pictures.. For the people who were not there, they were missed but, not forgotten.. We let the kids open their gifts first---well, anyone for that matter..=-) I seem to have the hardest time getting a nice picture of my parents, my dad loves to talk while you're trying to take the picture. [ahhh.. Parents].. When that was done, we played our game---on the order of the 'white elephant' game... The game that was most played at my parents house was Boggle... Everyone seems to love that game..
