Weekend in Review

We had a bit of a rough week last week, sickness/loss of sleep, Lets just say I do NOT do well with losing sleep!!

I was very ready for the weekend! and we had a fun time!

Friday night we took the kids to the mall (I just really needed out of the house)

Could these two look more alike?

 
Saturday the kids played outside most of the day, they are both very content playing outside! I'm looking forward to the weather getting nicer!
 

While doing wash Saturday, I found this. This kid is absolutely crazy! He makes me laugh all of the time!
 
Yesterday we had friends over for lunch then we just lounged around I love relaxing weekends with my family!
 
And now its snowing out! Wow the weather in the northeast is quite confusing!
 
Happy Monday (yes my favorite day of the week)

Happy Birthday Steve

Today is Steve's 29th birthday!
We went out on Saturday night to celebrate at The Cheesecake Factory!
 
Steve is the most amazing father!

This was lunch on Saturday. He knows how to make his daughters day!
 
He has taught me so much about being a parent! He looks at each day as an opportunity to make a difference. He is always doing little things to show the kids he loves them, and in return his kids absolutely adore him!
 
Aisha and I are having fun coming up with things to make his day special! She loves celebrating birthdays, and has been keeping his gift a secret for a couple of days (which is surprising) So we are looking forward to him getting home from work tonight!
 
I love you Steve, and I love going through life with you!

Confessions of a Mommy

~I HATE lollipops! when we go to the bank I pray my kids will be entertained watching their video and not realize where we are at (my husband thinks this is borderline child abuse)

~I am very uncreative when playing with my kids (especially a one year old) I am much better at reading books, coloring, putting puzzle together.



~When I'm getting ready I sometimes lock myself in the bathroom. (I mean seriously how am I supposed to get my eyeliner straight when I have two kids pulling at my leg)

~I struggle with keeping a clean/organized house and letting my kids be kids. Sometimes I feel like I'm more concerned about how my house looks than the happiness of my kids (wow that was hard to admit). I want my kids to be able to have fun and creative in my house but sometimes the mess drives me CRAZY. So this is something I'm working on daily. and to all you mothers with older kids who are saying "Oh just enjoy this age it will pass so quickly" would you like to come do my housework???? really, I'm being serious.

~I would stay home all the time, because I really do enjoy staying home, but mostly because it is so much work taking kids anywhere I mean just to get out the door is a huge task, but thankfully I am married to a man who loves to be on the go and hates sitting around, so we go and I really do love it and usually end up having a ton of fun


~I live for nap time!!! My kids absolutely ware me out so if you come to my house between 1:00 and 3:00 I will most likely be on the couch relaxing!

I'm on a journey of "delighting in" my kids (even when they are eating lollipops) maybe I will post about it soon.

Happy Monday! I'm off to make a birthday cake for Steve's birthday, wish me luck!

InstaFriday

life rearranged
 
To say this child likes looking at books would be a HUGE understatment! He is obsessed with his Usborne farm animal hide and seek book

Who needs toys when mommy leaves you play in the pantry? Some days I think my kids would not even notice if I got rid of all their toys.

This winter has been brutal for this little guy! currently he is pushing his top two molors through and he had the stomach bug! Lets just say I am VERY ready for spring to arrive!
 
Happy Friday

What I Wore Wednesday

So I'm back with What I Wore Wednesday! I have really needed a kick in the butt latley to get out of my sweats! It does not help if every morning Aisha wakes up and begs to stay in her pj's! Every morning (ok every other) morning when I'm getting her dressed she asked where we are going, I think that may be a bad sign that we stay in our pj's to much:)
Mint shirt~ rue21 (on sale)
Coral pants ~ gift from my sister (she's knows me very well)
Boots~ Boscovs (gift from my mom)
