I'm Still A Kid!

Well, actually my hubby is! 5 Minutes For Mom is hosting a Nestles Crunch Kid In You Photo contest. The prize is a Wii, which would be wonderful for us! We are moving to the midwest in about 41 days. (yes I am counting down!) Yesterday hubby mentioned that someone had brought one onto his ship the other day, and it was a lot of fun. We have chosen for the time to be game system free because I just didn't want to get it started. I know how it can suck people in. But since we are moving somewhere that actually gets a LOT of snow, and will probably housebound quite often, I thought we should start looking into getting a Wii so the boys could be active in the too cold to go outside times. So winning this would be perfect!


This is hubby with The Princess, and I think it definitely shows his inner kid, since he gets to be with his baby girl!


But then I think this a pretty good example of hubby being INCREDIBLY silly! He sent me this photo when he was deployed, he had found the shirt and thought it would make a great photo! I laughed myself silly over that one!

The Bird

This morning was TJ's Mothers Day Fiesta. And of course, I had my camera case, which was devoid of camera. Go figure. Otherwise I would have captured it on film. It was adorable though. All the moms, grandmas, and aunts sat while our darling children filed in to sing songs to us.

We were entertained by the song stylings of 2-3 yr olds (a lot of 4 yr olds too) doing re-mixes of Jesus Loves Me. Instead they sang Mommy Loves Me, and I Love My Mommy. The Grand Finale was 5 Little Monkeys.

There were of course hand gestures that had been taught. TJ has always had a bad habit of pointing with everything except his pointer finger. This morning, he was FLIPPING off the entire room of Preschool parents!

Busy Busy Busy!

You ever have one of those weeks where it seems like you have way too much to do and not enough time to do it in? Well, every week from now until the beginning of July is going to be like that for our family.
This week is crazy because hubby and his SILLY (stupid really, but I'm not supposed to use that word and when I do, TJ gets on my case...) ship are out until Friday. That's right, the ship, the same one that was out for 6 months is out again. It will come back Friday in the late afternoon, be home for the weekend and go out AGAIN for 8 days. *update* I just got an email from the Ships liason saying the ships email is down and their return date is uncertain. Prayer would be appreciated!

TJ's Mothers Day Party for his class is Wednesday. I had been counting on hubby being home so he could be with Little Guy and The Princess so I could go and just enjoy being with him. Now all THREE of us will be going, which should make for an interesting morning.

Here is a list of things I just need to get done today:

*Clean Kitchen, dishes, counters, floors
*Vacuum downstairs
*Laundry: wash, fold, put away
*clip coupons
*Clean the bathrooms
*straighten boys room

Which doesn't seem like a lot until you throw 3 kids and our newest addition into the mix!

Hubby gave me my Mothers Day gift a week early, I got a Teacup Chihuahua! He is 4 yrs old, which is GREAT. That means I don't have to housebreak him. Its already done! He is about 7 inches tall, and probably weighs 3-4 lbs. SO SWEET! And docile. No incessant barking, yipping or whining. His name is Bandit, or as I like to call him El Bandito!

The pressure is on us because we are going to be moving to the great Mid-West in 2 months. We have a TON of stuff to pack between now and then. I am trying to weed through stuff we haven't used in a while and either sell it, or "GASP" throw stuff away! Its a little hard to get everything done with hubby in and out, but after this next time he is going to try and use his 10 day house hunting leave while the ship goes out in June.

I think TJ is hitting a growth spurt, he is eating everything in sight!
We had just eaten breakfast this morning about 15 minutes earlier when he started in again about it, "I am SO hungry Mommy!"
"You just ate!"
"Well, I only have a LITTLE party in my tummy, I need a BIG party in my tummy now!"
