Gobble Gobble!

For Thanksgiving this year we went to my brother and sister in law's house. Jaden and Kaylie always have so much fun playing with their cousins. It's a nice break for me since they play the whole time and have someone else to entertain them. :) My sisters and I got to play a fun card game. Crystal made THE yummiest Thanksgiving dinner ever. Thanks so much Crystal! We had a really good time.
I am soooo grateful for my family. We always have fun together. It makes it really nice that Jamie likes to hang out with my family as well. He likes having other men to talk sports with. :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Thanksgiving with friends!

We celebrated Thanksgiving with our friends last night. Jack and I made a DELICIOUS turkey all by ourselves. We had a TON of food - turkey, Jack's famous mashed potatoes and gravy, salads, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mac and cheese casserole, yummy bread with sauce, pies, etc. We started talking about what we are all thankful for and decided it is dating sites. Why? Because that is how all of us met. Jamie met Patti on Singlesnet; Patti met Slim Shaney on Singlesnet; Patti met myself and Ben because of Jamie; Matt and Tanya met on; and of course Jamie and I met on Singlesnet; and that is how we are all linked together. 
I am so grateful that we have such great friends and have a blast hanging out together. They really are like a second family to me. 

(Patti and Jack have me addicted to Scrabble now - and this time I kicked butt! I won!)

(this was right before Kaylie threw up all over Patti's carpet. Poor girl was sick the rest of the night - so we ended the night early.)
(Jaden was there, but he was too busy playing with his friends.)

Working woman!

It's official. I am now a working woman! It feels good to be working again and making money. I work at Orbit Medical, it's a medical supply company. I am customer service for oxygen patients. So far I really like the company, the job and the people. It's part time, the hours are perfect. My first day leaving for work Jamie stayed home with the kids. I hugged Jaden goodbye and told him I was going to work. He said to me, "Mommy why do you have to go to work?" and I said, "cuz I gotta make some money for us." then he said, "But I thought Daddy was supposed to work and make money for us?" awwww what a smart little kid. I love him. I hugged him and said, "Well Daddy isn't working right now, so Mommy needs to work." He smiled and said "Oh okay Mommy."

Anyway, I feel great. I love having adult interaction again and getting some time away from the day to day life of motherhood. :)

It's all about the little things

Things I love about my kids...
1. Listening to them sing all day long.
2. Kaylie being my sweetie pie, cuddle bug and bff. She loves to cuddle and take naps with me and rub my back or arms.
3. The way Jaden says froot loops.
4. Anytime I leave the house and do errands without them Jaden always says, "I want something to make me happy while you're gone." Which means I want a treat!
5. Kaylie doing her excited squeal. She gets excited over the littlest things.
6. Whenever they want something like a new toy, they say "When Daddy sends us money I want that," or "Daddy has money, he can buy it."

7. Their adorable smiles and giggles.

GirL's NiGhT OuT!!!

 Friday night was girl's night out with Patti and friends. We went to Thaifoon, a really cool restaurant downtown and then went dancing! We had a good time, but missed our boyfriends a lot! It was nice to get out and have some girl time though! Thanks to my sister for babysitting my babies. :)

"All You Need" by Jaden James :)

Who in the world wakes up singing? I can tell you who...JADEN! Jaden wakes up singing, literally. Whether he is waking up from a nap or early in the morning at 6 am. The minute he opens his eyes he starts to sing. I think it is the cutest thing ever. He loves to watch the Thomas & Friends videos and listen to the songs. This one is his favorite and usually is the one he is always singing. He knows most of the words to all of his favorite songs. His memory is amazing and so is his voice. :) I am pretty positive he is going to be a singer. I love to hear him sing all day long.

Some of his favorite songs...
Real Gone - Cars theme song
Life is a Highway
all of the Thomas & Friends songs
Jingle Bells
Come on Ride the Train -
Quad City DJ's
Airplane song
(from Barney)

1.   The most spontaneous thing I've ever done was off the top of my  head...go to Vegas last minute with my boyfriend at the time. We just got in the car and drove there for the night. It was so fun. 

2.  The best gift I've ever received was other than the obvious (my kids)...a scrapbook that my mom made me of the first 21 years of my life. I love to look at it and reminisce. :) 

3.  A time that I was truly and genuinely surprised was when I found out I was pregnant with Kaylie...LOL, Jaden was only 2 1/2 months old...I remember calling Nicole and she thought I was joking. 

4.  I can't leave the house without my cell phone and chapstick.

5.  My favorite day of the week is Thursday because   Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice! :) My life is sooo exciting.

6.  Something that can always make me laugh is  Friends! the TV show

7.  My perfect day would include  sleeping in, Starbucks frap, play with kids, hang out at the pool, take a nap, gym, watch shows, yummy dinner and stay up late :)

BuNk BeDs!

 Daddy sending money = the kids getting bunk beds!!!

Wednesday morning the kids and I went to a furniture warehouse and found some great bunk beds. They got to test all of them out and thankfully they picked the one I had my eye on. The salesman told me that it would only take about an hour and a half. Hah! I started putting together the pieces that night, which took about two hours. Then Jamie and I finished it up on Friday night and it took us close to 3 hours. Jaden asked a hundred times, "Now can you set up my bunk beds?" "Are the bunk beds done yet?" Jaden and Kaylie were soooo excited. I'm so glad that I took pictures to remember their adorable, ecstatic faces.

Here they are sleeping the first night...

This is definitely going to be one of my favorite pictures forever...
Tonight they were in their own individual beds and stayed up talking for almost an hour. Jamie went in to tell them to go to sleep and Jaden had taken his pillow into Kaylie's bed and laid next to her. I went in and saw that they were laying there and decided why not? If they are going to sleep then they can sleep together. So I gave Jaden his blanket and they talked and giggled for a few more minutes and then fell asleep. I went in a couple hours later and took this picture. :) ♥ Best friends
