I'm starting a new job on Monday (with the same company). I'll be doing patient collections. I'm a little nervous, but am glad I get to stay in the company. My current department is laying people off which is a total bummer because I LOVE my job. I am thankful for the opportunity and will make the best of it! 

Moving 3 times in one week? Yep, that's us. I'm pretty sure I broke a record! We are finally settled in our new apartment and it's been good. It's only one mile from work and the kids' school which is awesome. I'm very happy with it and the kids seem to be happy, too. (I'm pretty sure my family isn't too happy though because they were the ones that helped me move. lol :)

I hate not having cable. I hate not having dvr. I miss my shows!!! I'm sick of watching my shows online at work on Saturdays. Today is my last Saturday working so now I don't know how I'm going to watch my shows! Don't even get me started on missing this season of American Idol. I've heard nothing but good things about it and I can't even watch it. GRRRR! 

Thursday night my awesome sister babysat my kids so Erick and I could go on a date. We ate dinner at Pizza Factory and went bowling at Fat Cats. The first game I kicked his butt, and the second game he won by only a few points. I was quite proud of myself. :) We had such a good time together and I'm so thankful for my sister for giving us some alone time. My kids always love when Meme comes over because she does such fun things. This time they colored Easter eggs. :)

I'm tired of getting yelled at on the phone by a bunch of old, crabby people. Most of them that call in at work think they know everything and that their situation is the most important. I really really really hope and pray that I am not one of those grumpy, rude, miserable, selfish, old women. 

Did I mention I HATE not having cable?!?!

Kaylie's Birthday

 Kaylie pretty much had two birthdays this time. Sunday is when we celebrated and had the birthday party with the family. Monday was her actual birthday and it was a great day just the four of us. We woke up early (like always) and got ready and had to take the Uhaul back. Jaden and Kaylie drove with AJ in the big truck and they loved it. Then we went to Ihop for breakfast. Kaylie got some pancakes with a smiley face on them and she loved those. Jaden got french toast and made sure he got a smiley face on his, too.
Kaylie's pretty new dress from Grandma. I LOVE IT!! and so did she :)

Then we went to Super Target and did some shopping. Kaylie picked out some cute polka dot bed sheets for her bed and a Barbie car for her Barbies, and a cute yellow checkered skirt. Jaden got a couple of trains because he was a good boy. :) After wearing ourselves out shopping we went home and took a long nap. Then picked up Megan and she came with us to eat at Texas Roadhouse. We all love that place. Kaylie kept saying she wanted to go to Texas Roadhouse all day. We had a great time celebrating her birthday.

Happy Birthday to Kaylie!

 Kaylie turned the big 3! On Sunday night we had a family get together to celebrate. Everyone in my family came and I was so grateful for that. I'm so glad that my kids have such great people in their lives. The kids had so much fun playing together and helping Kaylie open her presents. She got some great stuff! Aunt Angie and Grandpa got her some adorable, girly books. Uncle RyRy got her a Princess Tiana dress that she LOVED and wanted to put on right away. Aunt Megan got her a fun Dora game. Grandma got her the cutest dress ever and a Dora doll. Uncle Golden and Aunt Crystal and their cousins got her an Amazon gift card. And her cousin Anya made her such a cute picture and gave her a cute bracelet. Nicole made an amazing Barbie cake! My friend Alli got Kaylie a pretty dress. It was so much fun to celebrate Kaylie's birthday! She loved her princess balloons and presents and being with everyone! Happy Birthday Kaylie!!!

5 things I love

Saturday, April 2, 2011

K for Kaylie!!!

Kaylie is such a little sweetie pie even though she has her "terrible 2" moments! I'm hoping next week when she turns 3 they will all go away! ha! She is getting prettier, taller, cuter, smarter and more girly every day. As most of you know I am addicted to chapstick, I put it on a million times a day. Well I have now passed that on to little Miss Kaylie. I bought her some little girl lip gloss and a purse last week and she carries it around everywhere. She likes to put it on allll the time. It's so cute, she purses her lips and puts it on and then walks around with her lips pursed and carrying her little purse. Adorable. :o) She also loves to put on my makeup. When I'm getting ready in the morning she will come sit with me and put on eyeshadow and blush and likes to help me do my hair. It's too bad she doesn't like me doing her hair. She hates having her hair done and would prefer to have crazy hair. It's so stressful getting her ready in the morning because she cries everytime I do it. ugh!

Kaylie LOVES to help. She was such a helper during the move. She loved helping carry things to the truck and writing on boxes. She likes to help me do the dishes, mop the floor, laundry, etc. I love hearing her cute little voice say, "I wanna help."

Kaylie loves the letter K! Everytime she sees a K while we are driving or wherever she sees a K, she gets excited and shouts, "K for Kaylie!!"

Kaylie loves going to school, even though she may not always admit it. She cries at drop off, but her teachers say she is such a sweet, happy little girl. She plays nice, listens, takes good naps and is very smart. She is learning so much! She is also completely potty trained which is soooooooooooooooooooooo nice! I love her little bum in her cute little undies. :o)

Kaylie is super attached to me. She loves her mama! She wants me to hold her allll the time. She wants me to sit with her every second and be in the same room with me always. It is a little frustrating at times when I'm trying to get stuff done, but at least it's because she loves me. :o)

Kaylie loves to tease her big brother. It's kind of cute sometimes, but sometimes its not so fun when it really upsets Jaden and then they start to bicker. She is full of attitude and sometimes doesn't want him to talk to her or look at her. She'll say, "no! I don't want you to talk to me!" And Jaden gets so sad. I'm trying to get it to stop, so hopefully it gets better. Other than the occasional teasing and fighting over toys, Jaden and Kaylie are BEST buds. They are in separate classes at school so when they get to see each other or combine classes they get sooooo excited. Or when I come to pick them up from school I'll get Jaden first and he RUNS down to Kaylie's class so fast shouting, "Kiki we're here!! Kiki! Kiki!!!" Their excited faces and big smiles and huge hugs when I pick them up are the best part of my day!

I love love love to hug and kiss Kiki. She is so affectionate and so loving. She is soooo sweet to kids and babies that are smaller than her. She likes to take care of them and hug them and play with them. She has such a big heart and is my little sweetie pie. :o)

One other thing so I don't forget to write about this...every night when I put the kids to bed I lay there with them for a few minutes and they like to say "I love you" to everyone. We go down the list, "I love you Daddy, I love you Grandma, I love you Meme, I love you RyRy, I love you Nicole, I love you Brindley, I love you Londyn, I love you Angie, I love you Grandpa, I love you Granddaddy, I love you Grandmommy, I love you Aaliyah." etc etc! Jaden always makes sure he doesn't forget anyone. It's really cute. :o) I love my kids!
