Freebie Friday!

I haven't been "couponing" as much as I did for awhile. It is very time consuming but so, so worth it. I still try to keep my eye out for any diaper or baby wipe deals. Yesterday, I ran into CVS and came out with these 4 items. Guess how much I paid??? $3.07! I got 1 pack of diapers, 2 boxes of baby wipes and a thing of body wash!

Tea Parties & Tonka Trucks!

I was a slacker in the picture taking department this weekend. Keith had to work so I was on my own juggling events and kids! Saturday it poured and stormed all day. Well, it did stop long enough for us to go to Touch A Truck but it was windy and cold and we weren't dressed for the occasion so it was our quickest visit ever! Brrr!
After TAT, I dropped Drew and his buddy, Logan off at Logan's house and Addi and I went to a Tea Party at church! Jackie joined us but I didn't take one picture of her nor did I get a pic of the cutest little cupcakes ever. They had tea party hats on the top of them! Cute, cute! But I did manage to snap a few pics of Addi and her friend enjoying some tea together! Aren't they just the cutest? Addi is 4 months older than Preslee so they are just now beginning to really play together. They are Nursery buddies at church!
The rest of the weekend was busy as well! Drew was recognized in church for completing this session of Pastor Pals. He got a bag of goodies and he was also awarded a trip to see the Rome Braves in May!
After church we ate a quick lunch and then Keith took Addison home for her nap and Jackie took the kids to Hiram High School to see "Annie". It was soo cute! If you have never attented your local high school plays...you should check into it. The admission price is usually very low and the kids put on a great show. We plan to go see "The Wizard Of Oz" next weekend!

Way Back When-esday!

Every year an event called Touch A Truck is held in our county. It is the coolest thing. They close off a huge parking lot and bring out every kind of truck imaginable....dump truck, ambulance, mail truck, police cars, cranes, UPS trucks...everything! The kids are given free reign of the trucks to climb in and on them as they please. There are also other things to do...giveaways, food, characters and usually a helicopter lands. We have been taking Drew since he could walk and he still wants to go this year.
This picture was taken in April 2001. He would stand at the window and watch the bus come by every day to pick up and drop the neighborhood kids off...so he had an infatuation with buses. When we arrived that day at TAT...he saw the bus and it was all over. He would not come out. We finally had to drag him out screaming to go see the other trucks. (Now he hates the bus and complains when he has to ride it on occasion).
If you live nearby and are interested in attending Touch A Truck this Saturday, click here for more info! If it doesn't rain...we might see you there!
(I do know it is Thursday...I just never got around to posting this yesterday).

Picnic On The grounds!

The weather has been so nice this week, so I decided to take Addison and Malena outside for a picnic on the grounds (our front yard). The menu consisted of finger sandwiches (cut up bologna and cheese), cheese wafers (Cheetos), Fruit A La Creme' (strawberry yogurt) and tea (apple juice in sippy cups).

The girls sipping their "tea".

And a footnote....Addi's rule #344. Don't leave a piece of cheese hanging out of your mouth for more than 3 seconds or it will disappear before your eyes.

Pool Time!

I have been telling Jackie and Keith all winter that I wanted to take the kids to the Aquatic Center to swim. Not sure why we never did, and we asked ourselves that question Friday night. We finally took them and they LOVED it! They had the best time swimming inside. Now we can't wait for a few more weeks until we can swim OUTSIDE!!
Drew on the high dive!
There's those "blond sisters" again! Aren't they just the cutest???

Jackie and Addi!
