Preschool Weather Week

Ok, so I have been slacking lately on doing our whole preschool thing, it just feels like there hasn't been enough time during the day. Anyways we are back now.

This week is Weather Week. Learning all about weather

Today we are going to talk about the different kinds of weather and which one she like the most.
We are going to color a frog picture.
She is going to review the letter Vv and E, F, H, I, L, M, N and T.
And we are going to make a weather book with all the different kinds of weather in it and what they look like.

The girls didn't have school today and I knew their friend from Colton had Spring Break this week so we decided to have a sleep over with her.

We played games, watched movies, ate lots of junk and had lots of fun.

By about 11:30 pm last night I had decided they really needed to go to sleep or at least try and be quite (what was I thinking). So, then by 12:30 am I said ok bedtime. I could not stay up any longer. Well then I was worried all night about their friend sleepwalking in her sleep and unlocking the door or something so I did not get any sleep (she does do this) and of course it was a night that my baby girl decided to sleep all night long. So today I am so tired. YAWN!!!!

Busy Busy Bee

So yesterday we had hip hop @ 4 and then Madyson had her dress rehearsal for Junior Miss @ 5. I had to convince Wes to pick Lyndze up from hip hop because I knew he wouldn't take Madyson to the high school for Junior Miss. He says he just doesn't do those kinds of things. Needless to say he was not very impressed with having to sit there and wait the whole 15 minutes for Lyndze's class to get over but I can almost guarantee you that if he was having to wait for baseball or football practice to get out he would have loved it. I am pretty sure we need to have a boy somehow.

Today I have to take Madyson into Moscow to Applebee's because she got a coupon from school for a free meal and then she has the Junior Miss Program performance tonight, I am so nervous for her. Wes has decided to be the babysitter tonight because he doesn't want to go and watch so he gets to be stuck home with our 3 girls and then also our 2 nieces. Thankfully I have my sister in law to go with me to things now.

Yesterday I shampooed my kitchen chairs and now they look brand new and I went through the 9 or 10 totes I had filled with clothes and got those organized and a huge box filled for the garage sale we are having this summer I can't believe I kept most of those clothes for so long so now we have like 6 empty totes I am sure I will fill up again with something. I thought I was bad but then I had Wes go through one of his totes and he keeps everything he had newspaper clipping from forever ago that really said nothing and had nothing to do with him or his old teams. Crazy

Today I think that I am going to try and get all of our movies up from the basement and put on the shelf in the living room before I have to get ready.

Well Baby Check Up

So, I had to take my baby girl to get her shots yesterday and have the doctor do their check-up. First of all I was dreading this for 2 reasons: 1. Last time she had shots she was the crankest little girl ever. 2. I hate seeing her so sad and unhappy.

Took her in they weighed her she was 14 pounds 6 ounces and she was 24 1/2 inches long at almost 6 months old.

Next the doctor came in and examined her and said she was doing great, the only thing they are waiting for is her eye to clear up. She said that if by 9 months she is still having problems they might decide to "prob it". So now I am thinking should I lie and say her eye is great or let them fix it, I can not even imagine what that means but it doesn't sound good at all.

Then the mean old nurse comes in with the tray of shots (3 to be exact). She wipes her legs while Jaedyn is smiling so big at her and then 1 shot in and instant screaming and then the next 2. It was so horrible her face was beat red and she just kept screaming and there was really nothing I could do to calm her down. Finally I get her to stop crying so we can leave the room and go home.

She was pretty good last night a little fussy, she ended up falling asleep at around 6:30 and waking up around 10 to eat very briefly and falling back asleep and then comes 3:30 she wakes up and cries and eats and cries and eats and cries and cries .....for the rest of the morning. It was so horrible.

Today she is a little cranky not wanting to be put down and I can tell her legs are hurting her. I HATE SHOTS.

Field Trip

Today after many years (OK 3 years) I get to go on a field trip with my 2ND grader Kyndal. I have not been able to go on a field trip since my 9 year old was in kindergarten because shortly after she started school I started doing daycare in my home and then when we moved to Washington I was still unable to go on field trips because I didn't know anyone and was not going to leave Lyndze with just anyone.

So today we are going to go and do a tour of the WSU creamery. I guess we are going to get to watch them make ice cream and then after wards all the kids are going get an ice cream cone, so I think that is really the reason they all want to go there so bad lol.

Another thing I haven't done in years ride that big yellow school bus, should be fun but not at all like I remember it. Now that really was many years ago that I rode one of those. Can't wait to enjoy my day today with Kyndal and her friends. And thanks to my sister in law who is watching my younger kids so I can go.

Tuesday, March 23, 2010


This is the first day I have even felt like getting on my blog or looking at other blogs since Sunday. All of a sudden on Sunday I started feeling really sick and same with yesterday, today is a much better day. The only good thing about getting sick like that is I lost 2 pounds so maybe it was a good thing lol. Anyways now I am hoping that my kids don't get it, I tried staying away from them as much as possible but you just never know.

New Place New Friends

Well today I have to take my oldest daughter to a birthday party. I am so excited to be doing this because we just moved here about a month ago so its really exciting to know that she is already making friends. It's always a little scary moving to a new school and having to make new friends but the kids have done great it really makes me feel so much better and it's even nicer that I love the school they are going to. Now what to get a little girl we hardly know for her birthday? I'm thinking a gift card so she can pick out whatever she wants but then she really doesn't have anything to open. Ideas?

Another exciting thing is also happening today, my sister-in-law is moving into our apartment today. I know most of you are probably thinking are you crazy wanting to live with your in-laws but I'm not I assure you she is pretty much like my sister or actually closer to me than my sister. I love this because well I know no one here all family and friends live 450 miles away so now I will actually have someone close by to talk to and vent my frustrations and well I also get to spend time with my nieces again. It was so hard moving away from them because they have been in my life since they were babies so I really loved them like they were my own. I still have 2 nieces and 1 nephew who live back in Oregon and I'm not sure I will be able to get them up here or not lol. But it makes going back to Oregon that much better.

The Princess and The Frog

So with my free rental from Redbox for St.Patrick's Day the girls and I decided to rent The Princess and The Frog. My girls all loved this movie as a matter of fact my 5 year old watched it 3 times yesterday and still wants to watch it again this morning. For those of you that don't know what this movie
here is the synopsis:

Walt Disney Animation Studios presents the musical THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, an animated comedy set in the great city of New Orleans. From the creators of "The Little Mermaid" and "Aladdin" comes a modern twist on a classic tale, featuring a beautiful girl named Tiana (ANIKA NONI ROSE), a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss that leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana.

This movie was so cute my favorite characters were the fireflies they were so hilarious. I would recommend this to anyone who loves princess movies.

St. Patricks Day Menu

So tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and I always try to cook stuff that is either green or authentic Irish food.

Breakfast- Green scrambled eggs and toast with some green milk

Lunch-Shamrock shaped sandwich

Dinner- Gaelic Irish Steak w/ Irish Whiskey Sauce
Colcannon Potatoes
Spoon Rolls

Dessert-Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

So we will see how everyone likes dinner and dessert tomorrow because these are new items we have not ever tried. If you want the recipes just leave a message asking.

Coupon Clipping

So I have recently started clipping coupons I mean really clipping coupons. I used to just clip the diaper coupons but I now I have started doing all the coupons for the things that my family uses. I can't believe how much money you can actually save if you use coupons. Yesterday I went to Walmart to get my grocery shopping done and I saved $14 with coupons, Can you believe that? I couldn't. I am trying really hard to be better with money so part of that is clipping coupons. I am really awful and just buy whatever I want and not think about what a waste of money that is. So now I need to start saving for our family vacation next year to South Dakota. I want it to be lots of fun and they have a really awesome indoor water park hotel there I want to be able to stay at while we are there.

Preschool Leprechaun Week

So today Lyndze and her friend from across the street made shamrock headbands, a shamrock happy face, the face was made out of froot Loops, and we played with some homemade green playdoh. It was so much fun watching them make their happy faces. Now they are back outside playing and its nice in quite in here with Jaedyn sleeping.

Saturday Fun

First of all I checked my email this morning and I won my second giveaway, a free movie rental from Redbox I think we are going to rent Imagine That. What a great way to start my day.

We are going to go and check out the Home and Garden Expo today in Moscow, hopefully the kids we be good (maybe I will have to bribe them with ice cream). I wanted to get some ideas for our house and garden this year so I am making Wes take time out of his very busy day to go with me. Then he is off to work on his pickup truck again.

It snowed last night so hopefully when we get home the snow will still be here and the girls can start a sledding spot out in the field.

We are going to make some strawberry mousse today, which with be both Yummy and fun.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Planet 51

We just got done watching Planet 51 and it was just as funny as I thought it was going to be. Here is the synopsis from Imdb.com

"Lem is just an average teenager working on getting the girl and furthering his career at the local planetarium - except that he's an alien. At least to U.S. astronaut Captain Charles T. Baker who lands on Lem's planet hoping for a quick flag plant and a hasty return to earth and his millions of screaming fans. But on this alien planet the media has tagged spacemen as brain-eating, zombie-creating monsters, causing Baker to run for his life and into Lem's house. Now it's up to the green native to get the clumsy astronaut back to his spaceship before military dictator General Grawl and mad scientist Professor Kipple manage to exterminate the Earthly visitor."

The kids loved it so what more could I ask for. There was one part I thought was really inappropriate for kids well my kids anyways. There was a part where the Earthling was being examined and he got off the table and his towel feel off all they showed was his feet but the aliens had this look on their faces and said "that is a strange place for an antenna" I just thought that was to much for a little kid show. But I really liked it. Tell me what you think if you have seen this?

Movie Night

So, tonight is movie night again. We usually do game night then movie night but all of our games are still in boxes so movie night again. Tonight we are going to watch Planet 51. The girls have been wanting to see this movie so bad I think it looks really funny too. Has anyone seen this movie?

Friday Follow

So this is the first time I have heard about Friday Follow but I am going to try and it and see if I can get more followers to my blog.

Friday Follow is hosted by One 2 Try, Hearts Make Families, and Midday Escapades.

Friday Follow

So we will see if I can get more followers and then how many more blogs I am going to start following.

Easter Swap

So, being new to this whole blogging world I have been doing pretty much everything that comes my way. Yesterday for the first time I joined a Twitter Party which ended up being really fun but I had to leave early and take Madyson to dance class but I will definitely do one of those again. And now I am getting to try this whole blogging world Easter Swap. So what happens is you put your name in and they send you a email requesting info about you and then they match up people so I will get an email next week about my partner and then we purchase a small gift and send it and receive one in return. Sounds like fun to me I can't wait.

Sleep Deprived Part 3

Ok I know I have been getting no sleep at all this last couple of days and last night wasn't even caused by little Miss Jaedyn it was caused by all of Lyndze's stinkin' Elmo dolls. I get woke up by one saying Elmo is silly and then good bye and then a little while later the same thing. They are all on Lyndze's bed so I think she must have been kicking them but lazy and tired me I could not get out of bed and turn them off I guess I like being woke up or something. So, I took them off her bed this morning so hopefully between them and Jaedyn I can actually sleep tonight and we get to sleep in in the morning. Yay I love the weekends.

Sleep Deprived Part 2

So once again I feel very sleep deprived today for some reason when I put little miss Jaedyn to bed she doesn't sleep as long as when her dad puts her to bed, I am beginning to think that formula keeps her fuller longer so that is why she will sleep 9 hours instead of 7 when she drinks a bottle. She woke up at 2 and then pretty much every hour after that and then decided she wanted to be up for the morning at 5:30 by greeting us with her cute little talking I love when she jabbers like that and since we have not been having to take the girls to school anymore Lyndze has been sleeping in until 8:30 so I am pretty sure I picked the right rooms for the girls to share because both Madyson and Lyndze like to sleep and Kyndal and Jaedyn like to be up early as soon as its light outside, I really need to get them some dark curtains for their room so we can sleep in this summer haha.

Preschool Pet Week Day 4

So, even though I really do not feel like doing anything today we are going to make a pet Parrot today with fake feathers Lyndze will really enjoy it. I think that is probably all we are going to do today is that horrible or what? And we will do a couple pages out of her workbook.

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Sleep Deprived

So, last night I get home a little after 9 after being at a church event with a friend for a couple hours (which I might add was really fun) and all the kids are sleeping except Lyndze. I ask how long the little one Jaedyn has been sleeping and Wes is like oh I don't know since about 6:30 or so and I was thank you now I will be up half the night. So anyways I get ready for bed, read a book for awhile and then decide at 10:30 that she isn't going to be waking up anytime soon so it must be safe to go to sleep. Jaedyn wakes up sometime around 3:30 and wants to eat of course so she eats and goes back to sleep (thankfully) well then she wakes up about an hour later and does the same thing she continues to do this until 6:30 this morning when it is actually time to get up, man am I ever so tired. I can't handle waking up every hour like that every 2 hours not a big deal but every hour a very big deal, so I can't get upset with the poor little thing because well she did sleep for like 9 hours straight if only she would have gone to bed at a later time. YAWN.

Preschool Pet Week

So, we didn't do preschool yesterday because by the time she was done with all that boring testing yesterday she had no interest in coming home and doing any kind of learning so today we are going to do yesterday's and today together and this week she is learning about Pets.

We are going to talk about what kind of pets you could have (or that your parents would let you have) and then we are going to make a soft kitty out of construction paper and some cotton balls. We are going to learn to write the letter U (which she already knows how but nothing better than review right) and color a letter U and maybe decorate it with some stickers. Then we are going to play Find the Mittens-I hide some mittens in the house and she has to find them, should I hide them really really good or make it easy for her?

Then we are going to discuss how we should take care of our pets and what you have to do to take care of certain pets. We are actually going to give our real life pets a bath today too. That should be lots of fun and wet. Then we are going to make a shaggy dog with construction paper and some yarn. Then we are going to review how to write the letter D. And I think that pretty much covers it we might try and learn our phone number since that was one of the things she got marked down for.

Where the Wild Things Are

So Friday night was family movie night at our house and I picked up the move Where the Wild Things Are I remembered reading the book when I was little and figured the movie had to be just as good before watching I received some comments on how horrible the movie was and that is was scary which made me think that maybe I don't want my kids watching this movie. Well anyways I decided we would try it and if there were any scary parts we would just turn it off. For those of you that don't know what this movie is about here is the description from imdb.com

"An adolescent named Max has an active imagination, and he will throw fits if others don't go along with what he wants. Max - following an incident with Claire (his sister) and her friends, and following a tantrum which he throws as a result of his Mother paying more attention to her boyfriend than to him - runs away from home. Wearing his wolf costume at the time, Max not only runs away physically, but runs toward a world in his imagination. This world, an ocean away, is inhabited by large wild beasts, including one named Carol who is much like Max himself in temperament. Instead of eating Max like they normally would with creatures of his type, the wild things befriend Max after he proclaims himself a king who can magically solve all their problems"

I felt like the movie was good, the costumes were awesome. The parts that kinda made me think about letting my 5 year old watch it was when the Wild Things got angry but other than that I didn't think it was scary, maybe a little slow starting but good. My 5 year old did start crying at the end so she must have understood what the movie was about.


So my little Lyndze has a test today at the school to see if she is ready and what she still needs to learn and so on. She came out of the bedroom last night telling the girls she "needs them to teach her things because she has a test tomorrow" it was so funny. Now I am only filled with worry that she won't know enough or something. And also hopefully Jaedyn does good sitting there for an hour while Lyndze is doing this testing. I can't believe she is already going to be starting school, crazy how time flies.

Done Testing

Wow what a morning. We were there for almost 2 hours going to all these different stations, being asked a million questions and so on. I almost felt as though I was being tested too, wondering to myself if I answer wrong are they going to think that I am a bad parent or what. I am pretty sure I am going to make Wesley take Jaedyn when it is her time lol. I have never had to do such an extensive testing for Kindergarten before it was like 15 minutes and they were done when we lived in Oregon. So halfway through I started smelling this smell and I was like WOW is that the old man lol or what and then we went to the next station and sure enough it was my sweet little Jaedyn doing her thing. Went out to the car and of course like always all over her clothes, pretty sure I should just take off all her clothes off from now at around 9 and be prepared.

I Won

So the most exciting thing happened to me about 2 minutes ago, I checked my email and I had a You Won email from Girly Girl Giveaways. I have entered like 1 million giveaways and have never won anything but today I did, I am just so excited I had hardly contain myself I think my husband and kids think I am crazy or something because I opened the email and yelled I WON.

Beautiful Sunday

Its such a beautiful day outside today we decided we are going to take a drive somewhere up in the trees here and have a picnic and just look at the beautiful surroundings, but first I have to get my car cleaned out this morning I swear my mouse situation is not getting any better Friday I left my old coffee cup in there along with an expensive mouse trap well my coffee cup caught 4 mice while my trap caught nothing I am getting so sick of having mice in my car the only thing I can think of its because no one has lived in this house since May.
And when we get back from our Family Sunday Drive I have a list of things I want to get done today. We need to install the vent on the kitchen sink downstairs and also we need to drain out some water from the clean-out valve of the hot water heater and hopefully it is just clogged with some sediment and it will start working better.

Great Day with Family and Friends

So I had the most amazing day today.

Got up at 8

Wes cooked breakfast

Got the house mopped and cleaned

Wes left to go and work on his old pickup

The girls and I played outside for awhile

Then the next door neighbors daughter came over and played with the girls, we are still trying to get her used to Rose she just doesn't really like dogs I guess.
After Rebecca left the girls and I took a walk down the road, me pushing Lyndze and Jaedyn in the stroller because apparently Lyndze forgot how to walk.

While we were on our little walk I met a woman that lives down the road and her 2 young boys, its so weird living in an area where there is actually people around even though they aren't that close.

Then my friend Leslie and her family showed up for pizza and game night
. She also has a daughter named Kendall and the girls just think it is the coolest thing ever to have someone else in the house with the same name as one of them.

Leslie had to bring the games because well ours are still in boxes somewhere. We played this really fun card game called Rook and then we played this drawing connect the dots game which was fun but I think it is more of a kids game then an adult game really.

While we were having fun playing games the kids were running around the house having lots of fun too even putting some make-up on themselves which turned out really bright and all over their faces it was really funny (not sure that Matt and Leslie thought is was to funny though) lol

Such a great day it has been forever since we have had another family over for game night well actually since we lived in Oregon that's how long it has been sad sad I tell you. So, hopefully they enjoyed themselves enough to come back again sometime I know we did.

Mystic Wonders

So I just read about the most amazing thing ever its called Mystic Wonders Complete Laundry System. Basically what they are saying is that you could stop buying laundry soap and just start using their balls and it will clean your clothes (except for heavily soiled items). Also included is the dryer balls that are supposed to cut down on drying time how amazing would that be. For me that would be pretty amazing because I feel like I do laundry non-stop every day. I have had the chance to try these out but I did get to enter in a giveaway for them @ http://networkedblogs.com/PpAe and if I don't win I think I am still going to purchase the set, could you imagine the savings?

Movie Night

So every Friday night here at my house we try to do either a movie night or a game night and tonight we are doing a movie. I let my kids sit in the living room with us and eat popcorn which is a treat for them because I don't usually let them eat in the living room and we relax and watch a movie. Tonight we are watching Where the Wild Things Are. Has anyone heard about this movie or watched it before? What are you thoughts on it? I have heard a few different opinions about it so I guess we will see what my kids think about it.


So no preschool for Lyndze today because I have so much to do today. You see I keep my house really clean I think but when I know people are going to be coming over for some reason I think that I must do all those little deep cleaning things just in case and well I have a friend and her family coming over tomorrow so I must clean today and tomorrow because I know by tonight it will all be messy again but all the good cleaning will be done. People who know me know that when the main part of my house is out of order I have like total anxiety about it for some reason and I have no idea why I get that way but I do. So CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN for me today (and probably some blogging I am pretty sure I am addicted)

Weight Loss Journey Day 2

So yesterday was my first day and I must say I did pretty good. I stuck to my diet except that 1 piece of cheese I had at lunch, but other than that did awesome. Got in my Biggest Loser workout and walked 1 1/2 miles last night. So hopefully I can keep this up today as well. Got the biggest loser workout to do today cardio level 2 and then walking again tonight. I have to walk at night so I can actually get a sweat going because then I am not interrupted, I can have Wes take care of Jaedyn. Thought about going for a walk outside with the girls today because it looks like its going to be a nice day just not sure if I want to do it yet.


So yesterday Madyson came home with sign ups to go to "Be Your Best Self Camp."It sounds really awesome they teach them about exercise, nutrition, public speaking, goals and community service. Its part of the local Junior Miss Program here in Potlatch. The program is 4 hours and then a couple weeks after they are going to be performing at the Junior Miss Program. Madyson seems to be really excited about it not so much her dad though. Anyways, she also has dance tonight which she also loves doing, she is just growing up way to fast.

Preschool 3/4

So today we are going to be learning about raccoons and what a pain they are lol, no really she is going to learn about raccoons and then we are going to make a raccoon out of construction paper. She is going to be practicing her letters N-S. Then we are going to play this really fun game, I am going to be the raccoon and I go around and dump out the trash (which is paper with numbers on it) and she will have to pick up the paper and match the numbers to the correct bag with the number on it. Then we are going to make some cards with stamps. Should be another fun day.

Busy Day Today

So today I have to get the house cleaned, fit in a workout with the biggest losers, walk at least a mile and also do preschool with Lyndze. Today is the day I am starting my weight loss journey lol. I know I have said it many times before but I really do need to do it this time. So far so good just had my strawberry smoothie which was really really good. So unfortunately you guys are going to be my journal for this process and well I really need encouragement. lol.

Preschool 3/3

Today in preschool for Lyndze we are going to make a 3 little bears house with windows and doors that open and of course the 3 bears inside. We are then going to do a bear letter matching game with letters A-D and letters R and S. And we still need to finish our Froot Loop necklace from Monday. I might also try to teach her that bear rhyme I remember jump roping too when I was a little kid "Teddy Bear Teddy Bear" Do any of you remember that? And well that is all that we are going to do today.

Cranky Baby

So today I took Lyndze to preschool in Colton, it was pajama day they were celebrating Dr. Suess's birthday. Well while she is in school I went and did things in town and boy was my baby girl cranky today. She did not want anything to do with her car seat, or a bottle or a pacifier it was horrible. She cried on the way home after picking up Lyndze for like 20 minutes and there was nothing I could do for her.

Monday, March 1, 2010


Getting ready to cook dinner and then take Kyndal to gymnastics tonight. I have not been since Jaedyn was born because well Wes is home so I make him do it because I have to take the other 2 girls to their dance and sit there with 3 kids. But I am going tonight because well I hate to say this but I was home all day with all the kids and took them grocery shopping so really I just want to have 1 quite hour. Is that so bad of me or what? I need to start going with her again.

Grocery Shopping

So for some reason I thought I would torture myself again today and take all 4 of my kids with me to go grocery shopping. We got to the parking lot of Winco and I parked and then I laid down the law lol. I bribed them with ice cream cones if they were good while we were in the store and it worked. Should I feel bad about bribing them or not?

Preschool 3/1

Today we are learning about forest animals.
So today all the kids are home, and Kyndal and Madyson love playing school so I have to think of activities for them to do to. So Lyndze and I are going to go through a book and she will tell me which is a pet and which is a forest animal. Kyndal and Madyson will have to decide which is a forest animal and which is a desert animal. Then we are each going to make our own little forest out of construction paper.
We are going to practice counting and writing our numbers to 5, Madyson and Kyndal will have to do some multiplication.
Lyndze is also going to be learning how to write the letter S and Madyson and Kyndal will learn how to write the letter S in cursive.
After all this learning time we are going to make a Fruit Loop necklace which is really simple just a piece of string and some Fruit Loops.
