What a sweet movie...

no pun intended! haha!! we had already seen it when it first came out and I had it on our BB online and it came this week so we all watched it last night, I had forgotten how cute it was! as I have said before I just love watching kid movies, at least the good ones, hehe! we actually got some rain yesterday evening, and did we ever need it, it was actually a very cozy night because there was no sun beating in, it made me want to bake something! but I didn't, too lazy :) But I will bake a goody sometime this weekend, I'm thinking of something new, I have been eyeing a couple of recipes from another blog and they look mighty tasty! I have to go grocery shopping later on, and it's will be one of those big trips, my kids are like we don't have anything good to eat, them being home in the summer sure makes the grocery bill go waaaay up, all they want to do it eat! I need to run now! Stay cool, it's HOT!

This is how I feel right now, lots going on! too many balls in the air. Now that our vacation is over we are back to working on getting the house ready to sell, last night we were making our list on what needs to be tackled next. I also have a to do list that is crazy busy, and I will start marking things off today as I will not procrastinate, not me, I will accomplish by darn!! It's dangerously hot these days, triple digits mind you! I am actually ready for fall, I love the fall feeling, what I really want is some rain! which reminds me, Jim told Cameron to make sure he turns the sprinklers on when he gets up and the little bum is still sleeping, so I may need to do it myself, which I really shouldn't because last night Jim had a little talk with him about helping out more around here, he can have all the summer fun he wants he just needs to actually "lift a finger" every now and then!! haha! Well, I better get, I need to refresh my coffee, have a great day everyone! S

We love cousins! yeeha!

The girls during the Hannah Montana 3-D concert on

Papa Wayne who is a big golfer got Cameron his own set of clubs! wow, was he ever excited! they were off for a golf game on Saturday morning! thanks Papa Wayne!

We love our Papa!

Six Flags

We went to 6 Flags yesterday and had alot of fun but... it was 103 degrees and it was like burning alive all day, seriously, everyone there was just drenched in sweat, we took soooo many cool off breaks, you had too, we stayed plenty hydrated with drinks, snowcones! we rode alot of rides, the first ride I got on with Cameron was an upside down ride and I didn't realize it, I closed my eyes during most of it! Hannah is tall enough to ride most things and she did, no fear at all! Jim rode a few by himself because none of us were brave enough! We got there at 10 and left at 4, we just couldn't do it anymore, we were exhausted! We are just hanging here today, doing some housework and we leave for Texarkana tomorrow morning to see my family, we won't be back until Sunday, so I'll talk to you all next week! Here are some pictures from 6 Flags!

Summer so far...

A little 4-wheelin in the street, how "redneck" of us!
Giving everyone a little lift!
Look who has no training wheels!
Hopscotch fun
And last but not least, the reason my memory card
is always full!
We are having fun this summer and the kids are always up to something, they are either on their bikes, scooters, 4-wheeler, some kind of "wheels". Have a good Friday and stay cool!

One of my favorite shows to watch is Jon & Kate Plus 8 on TLC, I'm sure most of you have seen this show, I LOVE it, last night after about the 4th episode in a row I finally turned the tv off and went to bed, I could watch them all day! It is so hot these days, miserably hot! I take my kiddos out early because it's too much for them in the afternoon, I plan on taking them for a stroll this morning, my 3rd one doesn't get here until 10 and I have a double stroller so it works out. Not too much exciting to report this week, just kinda doing the normal, I can't believe it's already Thurs. but that's okay I am on vacation next week! yeah! I need to download some pictures for you so I'll check back in later! S

Good morning out there! I am waiting for my coffee to brew and enjoying a few minutes of "me time" before the day begins. Cameron is going to the waterpark with a friend at 10:30, and Hannah goes to the movies with her friend at 9:30, the theatre up the street has a free summer movie every week and it starts at 10:00 so she enjoys doing that. I had book club last night and I ALWAYS enjoy that, the book we are reading for our August discussion is "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen, and I hear it is excellent so I have some yummy reading ahead! Well, I need to throw some clothes on and get ready for the kiddos, but I am way to comfy in my jammies! hehe! and my coffee is ready! have a good day! S

Trip to the mall

Cameron had a birthday party to go to at the skateboard park in Grapevine Mills Mall last night so me, Jim & Hannah just hung out, walked around, had some pizza at Sbarro's. I had already told the kids we would take them to the candy store for some goodies, so they were totally excited about that, so they have their bags and are just salivating at all the sweets, filling them with those little shovels in the bins, and I was of course monitoring them because they get a little carried away and because that candy can be very costly once they put it on the scales, and wouldn't you know it, I spent $11 on 2 small bags of candy, I just cringed, you can't put it back! Jim said $11 in candy is $300 at the dentist!! haha!! we just made sure they brushed really good before bed. We actually had a nice time at the party, we knew alot of the people there, and Hannah had fun running around with the other younger kids. My dad aka...papa is coming to see us for the weekend and we are really excited, he is too much fun! The kids are still sleepin and my only kiddo for the day is pulling up so I need to run! Have a great weekend! S

Well, I'm just having my coffee doing some blog hopping, not too much going on here, which is kinda nice since we just had a long weekend. Went to the gym last night and had a good work out, I plan on going again tonight, Hannah is going to a friends house to swim today and then she has gym. tonight, I need to run to the library to get a few books, I have read everything I have, so I need more!! hehe!! I plan on watching "PS I love you" tonight, I got it last week and haven't had time so hopefully tonight I can watch it, I love Blockbuster online, such a dandy!
Not a real exciting post today huh?? are you bored? I have a clothes basket screaming at me so I better take care of that, have a good one, stay cool, drink peach tea with a lemon & lime in it!!

Well, looks like the hoopla is over, and everyone had a good 3 day weekend, good 4th, lots of food... and now it's time for routine again, and knowing me that's not a bad thing. When I said lots of food, I mean that I personally ate whatever the hell was in front of me, so with that said, the gym is going to be my "hangout" in the evenings, I was doing good for awhile but started slacking so now I am ready to get serious again! I only have 1 kiddo today so it should be easy peasy, Cameron is going swimming at a friends around noon and I have some housework to do, (what else is new) can I hear an amen moms???? After church yesterday we went to On the Border for lunch and in the kids menu pack they have these craft stick thingies, they are sticks that remind me of a candle wick, they are flexible, you can make what you want, Hannah Grace played with these stinkin things the ENTIRE day, I have never seen her so much fun with something, so I'll leave you with a picture of these "thingies" that she stuck to the wall!
