Be sure to check out my FREE Giveaway!!!! Yesterday my cousin and her 2 boys ages (almost) 7 and 2 came over for a visit. We had a nice visit and all of the kids had a ton of fun playing! The neighbor kids were over yesterday as well, so there were a total of 10 kids here, and only ONE of them was a girl! The kids all had so much fun, but were really tired by nights end. I believe they hit their pillows around 10pm. This morning everyone was up and out of bed by 8am. Which, isn't a bad time considering they usually like to wake me before 7am. However, since they were all up a little later last night I was hoping they would have slept in a little longer. So here is how our day went today.... Wake at 8am. Everyone RUN down the steps, because no one can ever walk quietly down the steps, and they have a TON of energy first thing in the morning. I wish I had half of their energy!!! I fed the boys breakfast and then started giving them baths. After all 4 boys had been bathed and … [Read more...]

FREE Nursing Cover Giveaway!!!! (CLOSED~Winner:Emily B!)

FREE Nursing Cover Giveaway!!! I am Super excited about my first FREE giveaway! I am even more excited that it is a nursing cover that I am giving away for FREE!!! I nursed my first 3 children without a nursing cover. I always had them covered with a blanket and they would get SO hot! When I had my 4th child I got a nursing cover and was so excited! Anytime we had company over or were out in public I was able to easily nurse my son without him getting extremely hot or upset. So I was super excited when I came across an etsy shop selling the cutest nursing covers! Not only does she sell nursing covers, but she also sells the cutest dresses, aprons and ruffle capris. Be sure to check them all out! A little about SHANNYgirl… Shannygirl is a proud Mommy to 3 cute kids! For years she had been sewing for her own pleasure until one day she decided to branch out. (We are so glad you did Shannygirl!) Shannygirl says that she loves to see others use her creations that she has made. There is … [Read more...]


It's so very quiet. I'm almost not sure what to do with myself. I sit here trying to think of all of the things that we have done today that I could possibly be writing about, but all I can really think about is the peace and quiet at my house right now. For those of you living with boys you know what I'm talking about. Boys are generally loud and full of so much energy. We finished supper tonight and while I was cleaning everything up the boys asked if we could go to town to buy them this neat little toy that they have just been dying to have. I told them that if they do all of their chores and are good the rest of the week I would take them on Friday when we make our regular trip to town to pick up things at the store. Of course, they know just how to push Daddy's buttons though. They gave him their cute little pouty lip and mushy I love yous and they were out the door on their way to Wal-Mart! Daddy is such a sucker! I think since he isn't home with them all day long he has a harder … [Read more...]

Thanks Mail Lady!!!

My oldest came walking into the house with the mail today and he had his hands so full he couldn't open the door! The kids were excited to see what had arrived in the mail, but disappointed that it wasn't toys or anything really fun. However, I was pretty pleased! I am always happy to receive FREE products! I had taken the advice of some of my Mom Blogger friends and have gone to a few different sites and signed up for free samples. Today I received a free sample of Bodycology Hand and Body lotion from Wal-Mart. It was the cherry blossom scent. It was just a small sample, but enough for me to know that I LOVE this product!!! It smells so fresh and my legs are so smooth now! I am definitely going to look into purchasing some of this lotion the next time I am in need for some new lotion. We also received a FREE gift from Juicy Juice. I went online and joined the Growing Up Healthy community. They sent me a FREE gift just for signing up! It is a lime green Juicy Juice Refillable Bottle! … [Read more...]

Dentist…Pets and Swing sets…

Today was a very long day for me. I rolled out of bed this morning at 5:30am. I'm not sure how my hubby does that every day! At 5:30 in the morning I am not a very nice person! ha ha! Actually today I didn't mind it to much. I knew I had to get up or I was going to be late for our appt. I had to take my 6 year old to a pediadontist today. We had an hour drive to get there. He had a few cavities that needed taken care of, so our dentist sent us to a specialist. Everything went really well. It was just the two of us. Daddy took the day off and stayed home with the other 3 boys. On the way home we stopped at a gas station so I could get a coffee and my little guy could get a slushy (his choice.) His mouth was still swollen and numb and it was so funny to watch him try to drink the slushy! I really shouldn't laugh, but it was so cute! When I got home I called and ordered the small gravel for the play area. They delivered that and the boys and Daddy leveled it all out and prepped it for the … [Read more...]


I'm sure you can already guess by reading my title to this blog that the boys decided to get the slip and slide out today. They just love playing in the slip and slide! We bought a pool this year, but never got around to putting it up. Maybe next year! However, our slip and slide has gotten very good use! Today was a very hot and muggy day, so it was perfect weather to play in the water outdoors. We lathered all of the boys up in sunscreen and headed out for some fun! After slipping and sliding around for a while the boys decided they wanted to do something a little different. I was playing with the baby and helping my hubby (more talking and watching than helping, but I like to say I was helping..he he) while he was prepping an area that we leveled out and tilled up for the play set. We laid landscaping plastic down today and are planning to add small gravel to the area and then put the play set in the center. I didn't really pay a whole lot of attention to the boys putting the hose … [Read more...]

Can a Beanie fly???

This weekend there were a ton of yard sales going on in the surrounding areas. I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with it, but they had the World's Longest Yard sale. Here is the link if you would like to read about it. We decided to venture out a little and see what was out there. It was actually pretty fun! Ever since McDonald's started giving away Beanie Babies again in the kids meals the boys have been wanting Beanie Babies, so every sale we stopped at they had to look for Beanies. They found a TON of them too! We got home and the boys headed upstairs to put their beanies in their bedrooms. They were up there for quite some time, but I didn't really want to bother them because they were being so good playing and were being so quiet! Now I know that whenever they are quiet for too long I really should check on them, but I was tired from all of the walking we had done and I figured they couldn't be doing anything that awful bad. So I let them go for a bit. About 10 minutes … [Read more...]

I have been Picture Tagged!!!

Yonca at Yonca is Cooking has tagged me! It's a picture tag! I have never been tagged before, but I think this is going to be fun!So the rules of the picture tag:►Open your first photo folder►Scroll down to the 10th photo.►Post that photo and story on your blog.►Tag five others (or more) friends to do the sameOk, so I cheated a little! Since I don't show pics of the kids faces on my blog I scrolled past the 10th photo and used one a little bit further down (probably about the 15th photo...and I added my logo to the pic before posting it here.) I didn't figure you all would mind! :)This photo is of our littlest guy when he was about 10 months old. I was doing a photoshoot of him and he really wasn't into it. He turned away from me and I kept shooting photos. Sometimes ones from behind are just as cool as the ones from the front! :)Ok, on to the picture tagging...I'm tagging 5 of my wonderful Bloggy Friends. I can't wait to see all of your great photos! Here are my choices...*Stacie at … [Read more...]
