kicks and screams, oh my!

Looks like the first apt was a success right?


The title pretty much sums it up, lys was just putting on a good show for the blog. She was terrified, yet the dentist was AMAZING with the situation. I need, desperately her patience with kids. I swear if I had it, I would probably have 15 kids. Yes, she was that amazing.

Good news though, teeth are great! No cavities and great oral hygiene! 

Have a great day everyone :)

You know it, you've all been there...

When you have some sort if writers block, or been too busy to stop and really think much less write considering it was the 2nd since I last wrote. Lemme break down the last 27 days for you.

 *I can announce something that I never thought I would be able to say again....I not longer have high cholesterol anymore.....WOO FREAKING HOO!!!!! It's been almost 7 months since that last told me my cholesterol was 266, and now this girl is down to 169!!! Which is truly a blessing considering I done it all on my own, no meds for this gal.

 *Kala passed all her classes this semester, and took her SAT. Shes been working alot and bringin' home that bacon, You go girl!

 *Tucker our 5 month old lab weighs a whopping 54.3 lbs, and has figured out he can jump on furniture. GREAT! Also in fur baby news Carli, the 3 legged collie went to the vet (due to her having a hard time getting around lately), and we were told to start saving for a new hip.

 *Alyssa is great, nothing new with her lately same prissy girl as always. No one told me that having a girl was so hard. There bossy, and needy, and dramatic. Yet so sweet, loving and accepting all at the same time. She has starting to "notice" how people look in public and ask questions. Like "Mommy, why does that woman have a big belly?" "Mommy, what's wrong with his neck?" Ya know things of That nature. I honestly don't know how to handle it other by telling her that we don't talk about others. We're thinking about putting her inside sort of dance class. She prances and and dances ALL day, and yes it's cute.

*We celebrated Australia Dat with Greg's co-worker Thursday it was awesome.

*Greg and I had a AMAZING date night with our friends at adventure landing, it was awesome to be kids again for about 3 hours.

 *Alyssa goes to the dentist for the first time tuesday, I will def be letting you know how that goes.

*Greg starts school tomorrow, he's excited. I'm happy for him, yet jealous at the same time, I wish I could go like now, oh well I will get there in due time.

 What all have you done this month?? Anything exciting??

I live for...

These amazing not very often moments

20 questions for our girl on her birthday!

This year we have started a tradition in our house. Since I have found the amazing pinterest it has encouraged me to do so many new and fun things. This was one that I knew would be starting. 

 I wanted to record a small video because I never want to forget her small words and how she says certain things. So here it goes:

Today my girl turned 4 years old. Today like every new years day for the past 3 years was bitter sweet, happy my girl is getting so big yet so sad at the same time. 

Today we had so much fun. It was so nice, and stress free. I couldn't have asked for a better day with my loves especially on her special day.

(Last night Kala and I blew up about 80 balloons to put in her bedroom for when she woke up the next morning... Well thankfully I took a photo the night before because they all fell over night. We were heartbroken but she was still so excited to see them all over the floor when she woke up.)

When we woke up and I made some pancakes and a smiley face one for my girl.
We watched a few shows and then opened presents.
Got ready to go out.
Went to grab some lunch. Got a amazing desert for her from the restaurant for her b-day.
Went to get our nails done.
Went to adventure landing where we played some mini golf, and some go cart racing. 
(She ended up not racing after we got in the car, she was still a little scared)
Came home and got a power nap.
Made our video (now annual) for our b-day girl.
Made some dinner, and had some cake.
Then it was bath and bed for our sweet girl.

Here a few photos throughout the day:
