It's Friday, It's Friday!! Yippee! I still love the weekends. Even though I am a homemaker and 80-90% of the time I do stay in my PJ's. It's good to have the husband home on the weekends so I can talk to an adult about things other than cartoons, imaginary friends, and why one should not run around naked outside where the neighbors can easily drive by and see you in the nude. Thankyouverymuch. So here goes with some Friday fun with Mamma M.

1. What is your favorite Easter tradition?
    Ham. Just kidding.  I guess that would be hunting Easter eggs with my daddy's side of the family. He has 7 brothers and sisters and they each have at least one kid. That equals a lot of kids running around looking for the prize egg. Now it's all of our kids running around hunting for the prize egg which is a lot of fun to watch.

2. Are you a "shower" or a "long, hot bath" kind of person?
   I'm just happy if I have a bath at the end of the day. My kids think nap time is not important anymore so I have to sneak in a shower when a cartoon has them mesmerized. But if  I had the choice a long hot bath for sure.

3. Can you parallel park and if so when is the last time you did it?
    You know, I don't know if I have ever parallel parked in my life. I don't even think I had to during my driving test. I did a three point turn that was really more like a 5 point turn..but I guess that doesn't count, does it?:)

4. What is your favorite Easter candy?
    By far Reese's peanut butter eggs....heaven!

5. Easter: do you go all out with the Easter Bunny or focus on the religious part of the holiday?
   We focus on the Jesus part of Easter and not so much on the Easter Bunny. Easter is about our Risen Saviour, Jesus Christ not about a bunny who sneaks into your house and leaves you eggs and gifts. Does not creep anyone else out? A big rabbit who carries eggs and sneaks into your house? It does me. We do give our kids a gift in their Easter basket's and it's because Jesus gave us the ultimate gift by loving us so much that he gave up his own life for our own.

I hope everyone has a very Happy Easter!!!

The week in review..

I know the week is not up yet, but it was still been a long week. Last Saturday we worked outside in the yard. It was such a pretty day. We planted three roses bushes by our front porch and retaining wall. I can't wait for them to grow and produce some yummy smelling roses. We I picked some yellow roses, light pink roses, and some pink with yellow and white mixed in, they are going to look so great! I can't wait. We also planted some fruit trees and created a small flower bed around our mailbox(with sunflowers and morning glories). It was really fun getting outside and playing in the dirt like I was 5. Speaking of 5 year olds,( and 3 year olds and 2 year olds) it was rather warm on Saturday afternoon(almost 90)so we pulled out the garden sprinkler and the kids played in the water. They were in heaven! It made me think about our upcoming trip to the beach. So I counted the days and only....79 more days. :( Woo-hoo! The hubs and  I woke up Sunday with some serious cold issues. This resulted in a weeks worth(actually probably like 2 weeks)of clean laundry piled high in my living room floor. Eeck! It is literally a mountain of laundry. It has been a long time since I have been this behind on laundry. See, it does no good for mommy to be sick. When I am dishes are usually left until the next morning, afternoon, night. The laundry is slowly taking over your entire house and everyday you get to participate in a wonderful little game called: Laundry diving! What? You've never played laundry diving? It's where you search through a 5 foot tall mountain of clothes and search for underwear, socks, PJs, uniforms for work,  or just about anything you can think of. Because, after a week,   2weeks of laundry piled up,you are bound to find anything from toy cars, my little ponies, Barbies, or even an old diaper!(Don't ask!) This is my husband's favorite past time! Forget about baseball, it's laundry diving for him! :) But, today I am feeling much better. I am so glad because tomorrow night the kids are spending the night with Mimi and Paw and it's date night for mommy and daddy! Yes! So for now I am going to take a little hint from the little engine that could: I think I can fold and put away Mt. Laundry I think I can fold and put away Mt. Laundry, I think I can fold and put aways Mt. Laundry!!! Umm....It's not working. Stupid little engine! ;)

Totally Random Tuesday

Today is Tuesday. There is nothing random about it, but the things going on in my life are totally random, most of the time!

  • I have been having major Internet issues the last 2-3 months. Why, because we live in the country so we only have one Internet provider option. Who is that? Well the lovely company Windstream. I have been married for 7 years and have had to call more times than I can count and have talked to exactly 2 people who have been nice. My husband called once and had the nicest lady who had our problem fixed first thing this morning. Enough said.
  • My son is currently running around naked...again.
  • Note to self: potty training would be nice.
  • I should be doing laundry instead of blogging.
  • I should be cleaning instead of blogging.
  • It's a beautiful day today. I have the windows open with a fresh breeze blowing in.
  • My children have out grown naps. I am so sad for more than one reason: A)my babies are growing up, B) I no longer have a nap time. Oh well. At least they're asleep by 8:30 at night when they don't have naps now.
  • I am now officially a soccer mom! I never thought I would be a soccer mom...yay for new things.*will post pics of the soccer girl later*
  • My soccer girl is now 5....What? How did that happen over night?
  • I am excited about our new adventure in homeschooling. Nervous a little but mostly excited!:)
  • We are planting a garden again this year. Hopefully it will be more productive than last year. I love the idea of growing our own food. We've already started the process and hopefully will be planting, in full, this weekend.
  • I love being outside.
  • We also planted some Morning glory's and Sunflower seeds in a small greenhouse on Friday and on Sunday they had already started to sprout! They are so tall now! I can't wait to plant them outside soon.
  • I'm seriously thinking about putting up a clothes line outside to hang my clean, wet clothes on during the spring/summer/fall*(Fall is a lot like summer around Alabama you!).
  • Am I becoming a "granola mom" ? Hmm, maybe...If I am, I think I like it!
  • I love my life!
  • That is all!
  • For now!
