Sunday we went to a crawfish boil is was so much fun and Delicious. The kids had the best time. There were a lot of kids there for them to play with and they had a trampoline with a net so Bella played in that almost all day. The crawfish were perfect it is a lot of work to eat it but we ate a ton of it. They made about 100 pounds of it. Bella loves it but Abby only ate like 2 she just wanted to carry them around all day. It was my first crawfish boil hopefully not my last.

Bella got a hold of the water hose when no one was paying attention to her and she made a mud puddle that her and Abby decided to play in. They were having so much fun in the mud we couldn't stop them . They had to have a bath at our friends house before we left.

Rainy Day Project

It rained all morning on Saturday so we did an indoor art project. We made marbled paper using shaving cream. The kids loved it. They had so much fun mixing the colors together. It was a super easy fun project. Abby freaked out when she got shaving cream on her hand but Bella just played in it with no problems. Enjoy the pictures.

Squash Book

I was sitting in my craft room working on a project when I saw this little book I made for Rick for Valentines day. I thought I would share it with you. My friend over at 3 Army brats in pink thought I should put my scrap book pages on here for inspiration but I don't have time to work on full pages. Actually I do have time it is just that I am a little far behind and I find it hard to get motivated to catch up but I will soon. Here it is this little book when it is all folded up it a 4inch square when it is open the pages are 6x6 I have made a few of these before they are super easy and make great little gifts.

Wonderful Day

Today was a great day! Isabella had a Dr. appointment with the Allergist, Rick was able to go with which was nice. I had to take Abby to school today because I didn't have a sitter she went on a Field trip to the children's museum she was there for about 1hour and 15 minutes and it cost me 40 bucks (that sucks) but what can you do. Anyways Bella's appointment went great we found out that she is not allergic to anything. So we are taking her off her meds. Bella has been on 4 meds a day for allergies since she was 2 some times I really don't understand Doctors. After Bella's appointment we went to lunch at this great place in Lacrosse called Rudy's it is a drive up restaurant where they serve you on roller skates it is super yummy and have the best Root Beer floats. The weather here has been so nice when we got home the girls played out side for the rest of the day.

I am going to post every week this weeks tasty treat. This week I made a super yummy key lime cheesecake with a raspberry sauce. If you would like the recipe just leave me a comment and I will email it.

What a weekend

Wow what a weekend. It all started on Friday when I woke up very sick so after I took the girls to school off to the Dr. I went. (I must say having a civilian Dr. has been awesome here I will so miss that when we move.) Anyways I have strep throat again well actually it is the same strep throat I had 3 weeks ago but since I did not finish my medication it came back. I will always finish my medicine from now on because this sucks. When Rick got home from work on Friday Went straight to bed that was at 6:30pm. Saturday I was feeling better and Rick had off all day so we just hung out. Now I am feeling fine so today Rick also had off we set off on a fun family day. We went to breakfast the girls had there favorite chocolate chip pancakes they were huge and Abby ate them all. We did some shopping ate lunch at pannera and went to the park. Isabella ran in to some friends from school and they had the best time. When we finished at the park we went to Chucky cheese. The girls had an absolute blast today they wish every day could be family fun day.

Our Thursday

Today I took my girls to the library for the first time they are 4 and almost 3. Does that make a bad mom that I haven't taken them before today? Well I will tell you why I haven't taken them before today I do not have quite children. To my surprise they were very good luckily for us the children's section is in the basement part of our library and we were the only ones there this morning. I let them pick out two books each which took forever they keep picking books we already had. They thought the library was so much fun. We will even go back next week.

Rick made it home on time tonight to eat supper with us we had a Mexican fiesta chicken chimichangas , beans and rice. It was delicious! Abby of course wouldn't eat it she hates Mexican food which confuses me because she is my kids and I could live on it. For dessert I made some mini funnel cakes using pate a choux paste. Rick deck them out for the girls with chocolate syrup and whip cream and we can't forget the sprinkles they were so yummy. The girls loved them and of course made a mess.

My first post

Welcome to my blog. I think this is going to be a great way to keep friends and family updated on our lives. We are a busy family but not to busy. I should have plenty of time to keep this blog updated. Hey if my friend over at 3 army brats in pink has time I have time. My friend Tuesday update has a great blog so I will get some pointers from her so I don't bore you to death. As stated in my profile my husband is in the military, he has been now for almost 11 years and we are currently stationed in Wisconsin which is great because I have lots of friends and family here. I get to spend a lot of time with them and we have tons of fun. Although poor husband is too busy at work he has no fun at all. The girls love it here they have lots of cousins to play with. The girls are both in preschool right now and Bella will be starting PreK in the fall. We still have our two old dogs (they are 10) Princess and Aurora. Although they are old dogs they act like puppies most days. I hope you like my blog if you have any tips on how to make it great let me know.
