Hello Blog!

Hello Blog!
I have completely abandoned you. I have started probably 7 posts in the past 2 weeks and I haven't' had the time to finish any of them. SORRY
Let me catch you back up.

Layla turned 6 weeks old.

and she now weighs 9 pounds 5 ounces! She got 4 shots, 3 in the legs and 1 oral shot and she didn't cry AT ALL. Not even a little squeal to let us know that it hurt maybe just a little. NOTHING. Man, she is a tough little girl!

I went back to work on Wednesday. And did I choose a good time to come back. With the World Series in town, we were incredibly BUSY. Which made the time go by so fast and kept my mind off how much I missed my babies! Landon did SOOO good being dropped off. Didn't cry
or whine at all! Ever since he became a big brother, I think he aged 5 years! Crazy!!!

Friday I went to Reba with my bff Cassie, her sister Lacie & her bff Lisa! We had a great time!!! Singing and dancing the entire time. Next time we are definitely going to have to bedazzle everything we wear. Apparently that's the cool thing to do!!
Then we headed downtown to go celebrate the cards victory.

Way too many people and not enough beer. Waited 20 minutes in line for a beer at Paddy O's for them to say we're out of beer when were 3 people away, so we sat there for another 15 minutes until they restocked their
coolers. Get with it people, it's not like the crowd was a surprise!

Saturday my mom & I took the kids to the apple butter festival in Kimmswick. It was WAY crowded than last year. I didn't get to look at anything because people are rude to people with strollers. and there were so many old ladies pushing dog strollers.
SERIOUSLY, i know you love your dog. but when you know there are going to be 10,000 people at a festival, leave the little rats at home. I even seen 1 lady pushing a single stroller and pulling a double stroller. ALL FOR DOGS. ahhh! makes me want to scream. lol Next year the kids are definitely staying home with daddy!!

Sunday was my nephew Jasons 11th birthday party at Incredible Pizza. Layla hung out with grandma Debbie
while we let Landon run and play. Until Landon got extremely whines and didn't want anything to do with the place. I picked him up and realized he had a fever. So here we are on Halloween and my Handy Manny has a fever and runny nose :( As of this morning he said he didn't want to go trick or treating and he didn't want any candy (that's how you really know he is sick!) So we will see how he is feeling once he wakes up from his nap to see if we will be going out this evening!

My Candy Corn :)
My Handy Manny!
"Smile Princess"- Landon

and here are a few pictures of snacks Landon & I made for his Halloween party a Nana's..

Owl Cupcakes
and witch hats!

thank you pinterest for the ideas! :)

Hope everyone has a safe & Happy Halloween!!!

Confession Friday

I confess I am at fault for Stella saying her first cuss word. Sorry Cass!!

I confess next week Lay turns 6 weeks! Which means Momma goes back to work! Thank god it's only 3 days a week.. I'm not ready to leave my babies!!!

I confess out of the 20 pounds I gained with Layla, I've lost 19 of them. STOKED. But not happy with the way my body looks!!!

I confess I'm excited about Bunco tonight!!! And even more excited to have a drink!!

I confess I really want to get a boob job. but seeing all the pain my sister has been in this week, I
don't know if it's worth it..

I confess I got my Breaking Dawn ticket! SO EXCITED! If anyone wants to go--buy a ticket for the theater in Waterloo & come along!

I confess Landon absolutely refuses to stay out of Layla's bassinet. He stands right next to it in the morning waiting for me to get her out so he can climb in.
I confess this reminds me of Landon & Stella. LOL
I confess I want to lose about 10 pounds in my face and get his haircut. love it.

Happy Friday Everyone!
Hope you have a great weekend!!!!

Confession Friday

I confess my first night out in 10 months was AWESOME. Well, what I remember of it. I still feel there are several people I need to apologize to for my drunkenness.. So if you're reading this, and think I was a little out of hand last night-- I'm SORRY! lol

I confess without this blog, last night would have never happened. I am lucky to have met a great group of girls!!!
part of the group! (notice my drunk eyes...yikes!)

I confess no matter how insecure I feel, it's great to have friends that help build my self esteem up. Even if it means being called a bitch. Lol jk Meagan!

I confess Landon had probably 7 chocolate donuts for breakfast this morning because there was no way I was going to cook him breakfast. the smell of food would have definitely made me sick.

I confess we are having dinner with The Odom's tonight. I am so excited to see Faye's bedroom!!!

I confess both kids are sleeping and I'm blogging.. I'm TIRED!! I should be napping too!

I blame BNO for this lame blog post!

Good night!

1 Month, Already?!?!

Happy 1 month to my beautiful daughter, Layla Ann!

Our little photo session this morning! :)

Ugh. 1 month. ALREADY!!!!

Why does 1 month of pregnancy seem to drag on but 1 month of your child's life goes by overnight?!

Pure Craziness!

Love you bigger than the world Ms. Layla!

So thankful God chose me to be your mommy!!!!!

And tonight is BNO! (Bloggers Night Out)..

I can't even begin to explain how EXCITED I am. This will be my first night out and first girl night out since January!

I plan on drinking a lot of these...

maybe a few of these...

and I might get a little wild and have some of these.

Oh, and of course some delicious mexican food!!!

Pumpkin Pickin'

Definitely one of my favorite times of the year is to go pumpkin picking!
Landon's first Halloween we went to Eckarts in Belleville. He was only 4 months old, so of course he was too little to enjoy the activies and the pumpkins, so we stayed at the store!

a little peek at Landon's 1st Eckarts visit! :)
Crazy how fast time goes by!!!!

What we didn't know about Eckart's was how much there was to do for kids! Dane was off on Monday so we decided to head to Eckart's to get mums. We figured they would be super crowded so we did't plan on staying long. We got there around 10:30 and there were hardly any cars in the parking lot and we seen all they had for kids to do. I was shocked! I knew there were some activities, but as soon as Landon seen it all, he was SO excited! I knew what we were doing the rest of the afternoon!

I'd say this was his 2nd favorite thing to do.. 2 days later and he's still talking about riding the horse!

He spotted the Choo Choo before we were even in the parking lot, he LOVED it!
Even sister went along for the ride on the choo choo!

feeding the goats and he big hairy one "ate my finger" as Landon said. lol
apparently the goat thought his finger was a carrot! :)
cute :)

and this was Landon's favorite part of the entire day.
THE TRACTORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For those of you that know Landon, know that he has a problem! Handy Manny and Tractors are his OBSESSION!!!
farmer in the making!?!

love my babies!!
I can't wait til next year when Layla can enjoy it all too!!!

Confession Friday!

I confess Friday is almost over and I'm just getting time to do my confessions!
Boo for afternoon confessions.

I confess our dog Lola is a goner. We will be finding a home for her before the weekend is over.. no ifs ands or buts. She bit Dane in the face last night. Granted they were playing outside and Dane tends to play a little rougher than he should.. It was a accident, but I will take NOOOO chance of it happening to my babies!!! Dane is ok, 2 gashes in his cheek and 1 on his lip. Scary!!

I confess I can't decide what Layla should be for Halloween. I have a couple ideas, and it involves me making part of the costume..but will probably cost close to $50 when it's all said and done. yikes!!!!!!!!!! Maybe she'll just wear her skeleton pj's! lol

I confess this week has been the worst with Landon. He has been incredibly whiny & a B.R.A.T!!!!!!!! I seriously wonder what happened to Layla's sweet, good big brother.. Hope he comes back soon!!!!!!!

I confess last night the 4 of us went to tequilas for dinner and I ordered the biggest margarita they could give me without having to put a straw in the pitcher. And 5 minutes later, Layla decided to poop my pants. Yep, right out of the diaper and all over me! The joys of motherhood!!

I confess as much as I am LOVING this beautiful weather, I'm thinking our pumpkin picking should wait a few more weeks until the weather cools off. It just doesn't feel like Fall!

I confess these burpees are going to kill me. I missed a few days, so Dane and I got caught up on them the other night. woah, I don't know if I'll make it past like day 12. lol

I confess I am EXCITED for bloggers night out next Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Zoo Day!

Today to celebrate Layla's 3 week birthday and Henry's 5 week birthday,
we packed the cars and headed to the Zoo.

Ok Ok, it was more for these two:

Landon LOVED seeing the elephants and the monkeys!

Then Landon & Stella got their picture drawn....

the finished product:
The artist forgot to draw Stella's neck, but isn't it adorable?!?!?! And doesn't Landon look like Dane!!!!

There are so many hills at the zoo, it is truly a workout.., but HOLY JESUS, with a double stroller and no husband, I got my ass kicked! Every muscle in my body hurts!!!!!!! Thank goodness for Cassie's sister Lacie who came along with us, she was a HUGE help! And I think we gave her the best birth control she could have ever asked for!! HA!!

Check out these jammies! I found them last night at wal-mart and couldn't pass them up! And they glow in the dark too!!
So cute! :)
