Super Why Birthday

I'm so sorry I haven't posted in a few days. Things have been a bit busy around here as I have been trying to prepare for a Super Why birthday party. Our 3rd child turns 4 this Monday, so we had a party for him on Saturday to celebrate. He dearly loves the Super Why cartoon on PBS, but we were unable to find Super Why decorations and so forth. However, we were able to find someone willing to attempt to make a Super Why cake for us, and I think she did an amazing job! Even better, the cake was the yummiest we have ever tasted!!! We will definitely be going back to her for our next birthday party! Friday as I am trying to straighten the house up and get things ready for the party I hear the boys in the living room giggling and having so much fun, so I grab my camera and head in to see what is going on. Yes, I grabbed my camera, because you just never know what you are going to walk in on and what I was hearing from the other room sounded like it was going to be something good! As … [Read more...]

Computer Chair Review and FREE $20 Credit for 1 Lucky reader!(WINNER: Elizabeth!)

I entered an online contest over at The Book Chook and was so excited last week when I received an email explaining to me that I was the Winner of a gift certificate to CSN Office Furniture!!! I was able to purchase a FREE computer chair! We received the computer chair yesterday. I was SO excited when we got home and the Big package was on our doorstep! The shipping was extremely fast! It only took a couple of days to get here. I would normally wait a couple of more days before I do a review on a product, but I have been sitting in this computer chair so much that I think I can give you an honest opinion on it. I love it! My old chair was falling apart! The kids had pushed it to close to the desk and the leather was all tore up and the inside foam stuff was coming out on the arms as well as the seat. It was just not a pretty sight! One of the things I'm most excited about with the new chair is the arms are hard plastic! Yay, less chance my boys are going to put a whole in them or do … [Read more...]

Wacky Wednesday

We are desperately trying to get back into a routine. Getting up at 6am is hard on all of us, and I have cranky little boys about halfway through the day. They are doing pretty good though. We spent a lot of the day today trying to get everything ready for our soon to be 4 year old's birthday party which is planned for Saturday. I think the rest of the week will probably be spent getting ready for the party. He is Super excited about his Super Why party! When asked what he wants for his birthday he says Super Why costume, Super Why toys, Super Why pen, anything Super Why! He is such a silly boy! He hates to wear clothes. I will dress him for the day and as soon as he goes to the bathroom he strips his clothes off and comes out in nothing but his underwear. However, he is always trying to make a cape out of bath towels and runs through the house saying Super Why to the rescue! It's so cute! I had a hair appointment tonight, which was much needed and way past due. As I'm driving … [Read more...]

Giveaway I found!

I don't normally do this, but I found a giveaway that I REALLY, I mean REALLY, did I say REALLY? WANT!!!! So, I'm going to post it here for you all to see as well! It's a FREE Oreck XL Gold Sweeper!!!! I found this GREAT giveaway at Mom Knows It All You can see the sweeper that is up for FREE at Oreck XL Gold What do you all think? Isn't this a GREAT giveaway! I REALLY need a new sweeper! We have never really had a good sweeper and always seem to be replacing them. I have looked at the more expensive sweepers in the past like Rainbow and Dyson, but could never bring myslef to spend that much on a sweeper. I was on the Oreck site and saw that they offer 5 FREE annual tune ups on the Oreck XL Gold! That is amazing!!! It also has hypo-allergenic filtration, which is awesome since a couple of my little guys have allergies! I'm sure this would help SO much!!! Having 4 BOYS I am ALWAYS running a sweeper! It sure would help if I had a good one! I sure hope I win this so I can write a … [Read more...]

First day back at school

Yes, it looks like the are peeing on the brick wall...ha ha! No, they are not, but when I told them to turn around so I could get a pic from behind for my blog and off their backpacks this is how they stood...ha ha! Today was the boys' first day back to school. As I have said in the past, our oldest is in the 4th grade now and our 2nd born is in Kindergarten. Our Kindergarten doesn't have the all day every day schedule yet, so he will be home with us tomorrow. They have a schedule that pretty much works out that they go two days one week and three the next. I was surprised at how well he did this year since it was all day long! The first year of preschool he cried for the first 2 weeks! The second year of preschool (and he had one of the teachers from the year before, and a couple of the same kids in his class) he cried the first 2 days, which was an improvement from the year before, but I really had thought after the first year he wouldn't have cried. He used to be our quiet and … [Read more...]

What’s that in the playhouse?

The weekend is coming to an end and the boys will be starting school soon. They are starting to get excited, but at the same time I can tell they are a little nervous as well. Our Kindergartner is really excited about making new friends and riding the school bus. I'm so happy he is not scared because he attended preschool for 2 years and cried the first couple of days both years. He has really grown up a lot this past year though. I am a little saddened that my boys are growing up so fast! Our 4th grader says that he doesn't like school and doesn't want to go back to school, but you can tell that he secretly is excited and can't wait! He did finally admit tonight that it might not be so bad at first. He will actually be changing classes this year and will have 3 different teachers. I was pretty surprised when I heard this, but as I think about it I'm thinking it might not be such a bad idea. This may help so they do not get bored and tired of the lesson or the teacher. My … [Read more...]

See Kai Run Review and FREE giveaway!!! (CLOSED-Winner:Vicki)

I have a really hard time finding cute shoes that actually fit my little guy. He is 15 months old and always seems to be falling down. I was really excited when I was told that I could review shoes by See Kai Run ! We even got to pick the pair of shoes that we wanted to review. How cool is that!? When the shoes arrived I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised. They are made of the softest leather possible! They must be very comfortable because my little guy does NOT want to take these shoes off! It is so funny because the minute he wakes in the morning he has to find his new shoes, bring them to me and I have to put them on him. If I don’t put them on him immediately he cries! I’m not joking! At night if I’m ready to go to bed and he is not yet asleep I am not allowed to take his shoes off. The other night I tried to take his shoes off when he was dosing on the couch a little and he started crying! I had to put him to bed in his new shoes! I honestly wasn’t sure what I was … [Read more...]
