Snow day!

We got lots of snow this weekend, and we took the kiddos out to play today! Malichi loved it, as usual. I think he could stay out all day, and he wouldn't care if he got frost bite! Kinzie, usually doesn't last so long, but today I think we were out for about an hour and a half! The kids had so much fun. There is a huge pile of snow in the yard from the plow that they went sledding down. Here are some of the cute shots I got!

I am sooo proud of my girlie! She's potty training and she is doing wonderful! She has been wearing panties since last saturday. No more diapers! Yay!!!!!!! It feels so good to have NONE in diapers. Kinzie is loving getting new big girl panties! We still do pullups at nap and bedtime, But other than that it's all about the panties! We even had 2 days last week where we were gone ALL day, and she made it through both days with no accidents! :) So proud of her!

Last week I went to Kindergarten registration for Malichi. I can't believe my baby is going off to Kindergarten in the fall! I can't believe that we considered possibly sending him this past year either! I am so glad we had this extra year together! And with the way his first year of preschool went, with all the changes, and going through FIVE different teachers, he just needed one more year of preschool. He is excited to go to Kindergarten though! And the best part is that Waconia is open enrollment for next year! Apparently they haven't had open enrollment in a long time. So, I was so happy to hear that. All his friends from preschool and mom's club are there, and he'll have so many more opportunities there than in Norwood.

And on a not so happy note... I had a bra fitting..... and guess what.. I am a TRIPLE D! No flippin' way. I am soooo not excited about that. NO WONDER I have such a hard time finding bras that fit me! My goodness.... we need to save up for that reduction. For real!

Oh yeah.. I forgot to post last weeks little impromtu valentine shoot we did:
Malichi was so not cooperative! I think he's quite sick of being mommy's little model! But I did get some cute "sick of taking pictures" pictures.

And Kinzie...always happy to pose and show off a little attitude! Especially when mommy bribes with suckers or bubblegum!

Got me some Lisa Loeb!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so...anyone who knows me, knows I LOVE me some Lisa Loeb!!! She is amazing! I love her! She gets my foot tapping, and my creative juices flowing when I listen to her! I even had her sign my pink purse when I went to her concert!
So I treated myself to a few Lisa things today:

And I even got my babes some Lisa:

I can't flippin' wait for this stuff to come. I love getting packages and this one will be especially exciting for me!!!!!!! :)

I have been trying to find this shirt from Delias. It says "I love boys with glasses" with a big heart on it. I want it. I have to have it! I saw someone with it on at the German restaurant that we went to for Nate's birthday. I asked where she got it, and she told me Delia's but they no longer carry it! :( I found it on ebay and bid on it, but I wasn't the winning bidder. So if you find it anywhere...TELL ME!!!!!!! :)

If you haven't heard about the big grab bag event at MDM yet, you better get over there and check it out! For only $2.00 you can pick up Grab Bags from me, Holly, Toni, Nancy, and Kimberly! They are packed with lots of goodies that are worth WAY more than 2 bucks! But they are only available until Saturday night, and after that the items inside will go up in the store for regular price.

Get them Here!

And last but not least, the ASPCA charity kit is up! This is from Holly's site about the kit "The digital scrapbooking industry has always been a generous one. We give to many charities and have compassion for so much. It's time we expressed our compassion and act as a voice for those that cannot speak for themselves, animals. The ASPCA is an organization based in the United States. ASPCA stands for The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. All proceeds from this collaborative charity kit will go directly to this organization." Click HERE if you'd like to donate or purchase the kit!!!

Off to get my babes to bed. Later...

sick of being sick!

We've ALL been sick at our house. It's been a looooong week. Kinzie started it last week with her 102.5 fever, and she is just now finally getting better. Then I started getting sick Monday night. I haven't much done all week because of it. We had to miss out on playgroup, school, ECFE, and our Sprouts class this week!!! I am going stir crazy! I am so glad we are all starting to feel better! Our plan for tomorrow is to go for lunch at Noodles and Compay with Kim, a good friend of mine, and then go play at Edinborough park. It will be so good for the kids to get out of the house! And well, I get to eat at Noodles! So I am all for it! Let's hope we still feel good in the morning!

I am trying to catch up on some stuff tonight, so guess I can't say I haven't gotten ANYTHING done..

Check out my little stud muffin! Isn't he just handsome!!!!

And my little spunky one:

and her cheesy fake grin:

I did manage to get this new product out in the stores this week! I have had this in the works for a LOOOONNNG time! So glad I've finally got my mojo back, and can crank out some new designs!!!!!

You can get it here or here

And finally...I got a page done!!! :) This one was for a weekend challenge over at My Digital Muse to take a self portrait and scrap it. Here was my take on the challenge.

well, enough blogging for tonight. It's time to fold laundry while I catch up on some Dr. Phil and Oprah! :)
