Happy 6th Birthday Clowny Pants!
Since the boys dont technically share a birthday, having thier birthdays 4 days apart still lets us "share" their special day together- esp at Grandma's house. The highlight of our day was the egg free banana muffins that Clowny Pants made (his egg allergy keeps him from enjoying birthday cakes) . He specially requested the "2" 's and the "6" 's be frosted in green- his favorite color- on the muffins.
Scooty had no idea what to do with his candle, so grandpa blew it out for him hee hee.
Scooty picked up a new sentance that day too (you'd think he'd have mastered it at Christmas lol) "Open Presents!"
My little boys are getting so big!!

As you hold these candies in your hand and turn them, you will see...
The M becomes a W, an E and then a 3.
They tell the Christmas story it's one I'm sure you know.
It took place in a stable a long, long time ago.
The E is for the East where the star shone oh so bright.
The M is for the Manger where the baby Jesus slept that night.
The 3 is for the Wisemen bearing gifts, they say they came.
W is for Worship, Hallelujah Praise to His name.
So as you eat these candies or share them with a friend, r
emember the spirit of Christmas and never let it end!

I know...I know...that's not a bag...that's the card that Bossy and Sassy made for their piano teacher... it was too cute not to share...
-brown marker (I like sharpies for this project)
-finger or thumb (I used Scooty's big toe)
1)OK I forgot to take a picture of what it looked like with just the antlers...so use your imagination..
dry completely before going on to step 2
2) draw on antlers...I used a brown sharpie
3) glue eyes on
(I couldn't find my google eyes, so I used a hole punch on white paper, then drew a pupil on each eye and then glued it on...it looks like a google eye, right?)

I swear its because growing up my brother and sister were HUGE Star Wars nerds and it all sort of sunk in through osmosis.

Here's a very short, very incomplete list:
-a houseful of noisy children. They fill my life and heart with joy. I think I'd be pretty lonely without them. And gosh they're cute and funny.
-a loving husband. I sure like him. He's a keeper. Even if he can't find the hamper.
- a roof over my head. Yep, our house is too small, yep we have crappy neighbors that party all hours of the night on weekends, but I have a place to call home.
-loving and supportive parents. My mother has had a rough year this past year, and we got the best news we've heard in months on monday. Her PET scan came back clear. That means that all the chemo and radition she's done has paid off. I am truly thankful for that news, I love my mommy and I love that I get to share her with my children.

we colored ours over placemats as to not draw all over the table
when you're done coloring, dip your coffee filter in about an inch of water
squeeze the water out

At first glance, it would appear that Scooty Pants has been eating smurfs, right?
Turns out he bit the tip off of a non toxic washable crayola marker. EW!!! Thankfully he spit it right out, but it turned his whole mouth blue!! No more markers for you Scooty!!

Is Christmas coming early this year? Can't we have Thanksgiving first?
Never mind that its 90 degrees outside...

Sassy pants and I are both carrying a little big of junk in our trunks, but are slim pretty much everywhere else. Thats where buying jeans is literally a pain in the behind.
Usually the problem is "gap-osis", where there's a 2+ inch gap between the back of the pants/jeans and your back. And then your underpants show. PROBLEM. Not only is it completely unflattering (and who wants to see what underpants you're wearing, right?) but its also really uncomfortable!
Last night at kohls, grandma sent Sassy into the fitting room with 14 pairs of jeans. (I kid you not). The 4th pair of jeans Sassy tried on was a pair of Lee girls streach jeans with a "NO GAP WAISTBAND" and you know what? THEY FIT PERFECT! No "gap-osis", no "hitch up your pants-dance" to keep them up...we were in LOVE.
Come to find out after googling....Lee makes an ENTIRE LINE of these not only for little girls (in slim sizes too!), but for ladies too! Guess what my first pair of post baby jeans I'm purchasing are going to be? Yep...you guessed it!
And whats better than finding a fantastic fitting pair of jeans? Knowing that they're reasonably priced!! I think Sassy Pants new jeans were around $11! (on sale, with a 20% off coupon)
THANK YOU LEE for making a pair of jeans that cover our booties!!

Houseful of Thomas Fanatics here...I think this one is probably this biggest fan...at 22mo, Scooty can name ALL the trains. However he can't tell me what HIS name is. But when he's mad at you he'll call you a "Steamie!" (just like Diesel calls Thomas!)

I have 2 nut allergic children, and when my sister found this at her favorite grocery store last week, she picked it up for me to try on them. (Thank you Auntie!) Scooty wasnt too impressed with it(he didnt know what to do with it really), Sassy refused to try it (she's hopelessly devoted to creamy skippy), but both Bossy and Clowny took Sunflower Seed Butter sandwhiches to school today because they LOVE IT!
Clowny Pants loves having a peanut free sandwhich alternative! (I loving giving him something that tastes like peanut butter but doesnt make him sick) And I'm hoping it helps put a little meat on his scrawny little bones too!
I love that its peanut free, and inexpensive! $2.50 for a 16oz jar!
Thumbs up all around!

My aunt gave my children mini pumpkins this weekend as party favors at her grandson's birthday party. What better way to display them than than a pretty vase on the center of your kitchen table?(this is me crossing my fingers the kids dont touch it and break it)
And yes, those are plastic glow in the dark spiders stuck in there too lol
I *may* or *may not* have gotten the idea for this centerpiece from this photograph in FamilyCircle magazine...

I think I'm ready.
I have officially lost my mind. Hubs and I will be welcoming a 5th spawn into our over crowded household around the beginning of April. Yep, that means we've known for several months. But you know how we are about telling people about expanding our family...we just DON'T tell people! lol
So there you have it.
And now back to trying to convince myself 5 isn't that much harder than 4...I can handle 5, right?
