My Cute Boys!

The boys monkeying around

So last weekend it was Skyler and Amy's (and Al Conrad's) birthday! Happy birthday all. The boys and I went to Orange County and spent the weekend with my parents. Saturday my mom and I took the boys to Atlantis Park, and Sunday we met my friend Vanessa, her cousin and two boys, and Amy, Brock, Isabel and Aidan at the Santa Ana Zoo. It was a lot of fun. Afterward we went to Steve's house to see Christine's new dog, Princess. Then back to my parents for dinner, cake and presents. We all had a GREAT DAY!!! We left for home early the next morning, there was hardly any traffic at all and we were home by 11am.

The next day I went to work, worked all day and around 4:30 I was told that that they needed to make some changes and that it wasn't working out and so I don't have a job there anymore. I am now an unemployed stay at home mom!!! Skyler's last day of kindergarten was yesterday so he and David will go to David's school (preschool) Tuesday and Thursdays and I will get to spend some time with my boys over the summer. Financially Shannon and I are making some changes. I will keep you posted! (good so far!)

Happy Saturday,
Love ya,

Summertime Fun!!!

Our resort like pool!

Gotta love the dead plant!!!

It's like our own personal little water park. I think David is sitting down!

Wait, Skyler's going to show him how to do it!!!

Check out the form!!!

It was really, really hot here over the weekend. We finally turned on the air conditioner and pulled out the water toys. It was like raging waters in our own back yard!!!

Time to sleep.

Love ya,

Look at this concentration. My boys are so cute. This morning we went to breakfast @ Zingos. I took this picture while we were waiting for our food. Skyler was playing Legos Starwars game on his gameboy and David was watching/helping. In between watching/helping he would color.

We got home from breakfast and I immediately took a two and 1/2 hour nap! Yea for me!!! When I woke up the guys were all outside playing in the little pool and the water slide. I went out there for a few hours. It was great fun!!! They will sleep good tonight. Speaking of sleep I think I will go get some.

Happy Sunny Saturday,
Love ya,

Out of Hand. . . .

I really don't understand how things got so out of hand. I remember when Skyler was two or so he would take a three hour nap, wake up at 5pm and go to sleep at 7:30 every night like clockwork! It is almost 9:30 and I can still hear both of them moving around making noise. I wish for the 7:30 days. I miss them so. If anyone has any great ideas on how to get them to sleep earlier please pass them along.
oh well, maybe if they continue to stay up late one day some weekend not to far away they will sleep past 7am!
I can dream!!!
Happy Tuesday to You all,
Love ya,

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Well it was a pretty great weekend around here, hope you all had an enjoyable one also. My boys are so cute. I woke up yesterday morning around 7:30 to Skyler yelling at the top of his lungs from the kitchen for me to come there. I came out to a heart shaped toast sandwich! Too Cute! Friday I got to go to David's school and have lunch with all the mothers and students. It was really nice. He made me a wind sock and the teacher had us all bring an old shoe that she spray painted bronze and put a pant in. It was totally cute.
This morning I got up and the boys were coloring with markers. Ten minutes later they both had marked all over their faces, colored on their feet, and put spots on their legs and arms. They said "look Mom, I have spots!" It was a little hard to get off in the bathtub tonight, but it did come off!
Well, I apologize for not posting more often, but promise to try harder!
Happy Sunday,
Love ya,
