As Myrna would say. . .Wii should probably be doing something constructive!!!

The Lego's Star Wars game for the Wii has taken over my house!!!

Look at that concentration

Player and a patient observer

Goofy David!

Big Daddy!

Wow! Star Wars is in the house!!!

For about a week now all I hear from my kids is "Can I play Star Wars now???" or "When can I play Star Wars???" I have got to tell you, I am over it! Over the Wii Star Wars game. It might have to go on a little vacation soon!!! Both children and their father are all obsessed with this game. I tried to play but sucked so I gave up. That's probably why I am now over it.

We have taken breaks to go outside and play in the pool. I don't really know what was up with me today, I had a case of the lazies (what's new!) It took me three hours to get out of the house to go to Costco. I really went to get Sweet 'n Low and they didn't even have it! They did have these two water toys for the pool that you blow up and you can sit in them and shoot water at the other guy. They looked pretty cool so we got them.

Every picture I took of David in the pool today he had his eyes closed.

I think this is the cutest picture of Skyler. He looks like he is just chillin'.

I guess these are a little big for our small pool, but the boys sure had fun with them.

While the boys and Shannon had a little fun in the pool I made burritos for dinner. We ate in the living room. I think it is so cute when the boys eat at the little table in the middle of the room. Fine dining at its best.

So it was a pretty great weekend. I watched the movie Fool's Gold last Wednesday. It was a really cute movie. Last night Shannon and I watched The Bucket List. It was also really really good.

Well, I hope you all have a great week.

Happy Sunday!

So today was the Father's day luncheon at the boys' school. They really do the nicest things there. They served barbeque beef sandwiches, potatoe salad, apples and desert. The boys gave their dad the cute little things that they had made for him at school (Skyler is going to David's daycare with him for the summer). Actually only Skyler gave him a present, David couldn't find his, his teacher was out all week with a bad back. I am sure they will find David's present on Monday. When they got home the water fun began. . .
Earlier in the week when I was not watching my children's every move they put dirt and grass our little pool. Today their Dad dumped out the pool in an effort to get the dirt out. Here are a few pictures of the fun they had in the water that came out of the pool.

This is them posing for mom!
Skyler doing snow angels in the water.

Look at the joy on Skyler's face. Too much fun!

One of the most fun things was when they ran and jumped landing in the water or landing on their feet on their "surfboards". Here they are posing on their "surfboards".

When we went down to my parent's house Memorial Day weekend my dad gave us a tomatoe plant. We planted it finally last weekend in a big pot and got it all hooked up to our sprinkler system. Today I noticed it had a few blooms on it!

So here is the pot, the plant, and our tomatoe cages.

Here is a close up of the little yellow blooms it has on it.

So after taking all of those cute pictures they decided they wanted an ugly picture. I know they are still pretty cute even when they are doing ugly.

Love Ya,

BEWARE ~ Enter at Your Own Risk!

Oh my goodness! This is the boys' toy room. It was cleaned from top to bottom yesterday. Yesterday! This is the toy room today about 1pm. Laurie, our housekeeper had put all of Skyler's papers fr0m this school year in a paper box. Today the boys threw all of the papers all over the floor in the just cleaned (and cleaned out) toy room. They then did snow angels in the paper, and had much fun tossing everything up in the air over and over again. They also eventually took the sheet off the bed in there and yelled and screamed over and over telling on eachother.
At one point this morning David came out with marker ALL OVER HIS BACK. Skyler had made a tattoo on his back for him. You can't really see it in the picture, he had gone into the pool and most of it had come off before I took the pictures.
Anyway just wanted to share a little bit of my day! Oh, by the way, it is HOTTER THAN H.E. DOUBLE TOOTHPICKS HERE, and we have NOT YET turned on our air conditioner!!! Crazy! I think we are crazy. Tomorrow the boys get to go to school and I get to wait for Unemployment to call!!! I will keep you posted.
Happy Monday,
love ya,

So I asked the boys to pick up their toy room and their response was to set up bags to get rid of toys. I think they think they are making room for new toys, little do they know. NO NEW TOYS!!! It's pretty funny, they pick each others things to get rid of, then veto the other. I think it is all just a big game to get out of cleaning the toy room. Little do they know they will have to clean the room when they are done with their little purge!
I am so so so very tired tonight. I might even go to sleep before they do.
Well almost wahoo day!!!
Happy Thursday,

Staying Home

Well, I have to admit, it is a lot easier to work out (go to the gym) and cook dinner on a daily basis when you don't have to go to work!!!

Shannon goes back and forth between being REALLY freaked out and saying it's all good. I hope he gets better, it has after all only been one week and Indiana Jones is still protecting our home!!!

Happy Wednesday,
Love ya,

or maybe he is protecting my kitchen.
I have got to tell you, ready, confession time. . .
Skyler asked for Indiana Jones Legos for his birthday and got three kits. Well this afternoon Skyler and I sat down at the kitchen table and put together all of these! It was great watching him. I remember when he turned five and he got some batman lego kits and he could not put them together to save his life, but today at seven he could do most of it himself (with the directions). Toward the end I think he was a little tired (we did this for most of four hours), he had a little meltdown saying "you do it!" Other than that he did great!!! It was a lot of fun hanging out with him working together. Shannon and David took a little nap and went grocery shopping.
Well time for dinner. I will try and post pictures of our new car soon. We traded in the 4runner and the Volvo for a Jeep Compass. Part of some of our financial changes. Two car payments for one!!! It is cute and gets great gas mileage!
Happy Sunday!!!
Love ya,
