Not Me Monday!!!

It's another edition of 'Not Me Monday'! Has it been awhile? LOL

I haven't had intentions of exercising on more than one occasion & never making it. NOPE! I'm a gym rat, ya know!!

I didn't come home from the store, put the groceries away, & later discover I put the chicken in the cabinet instead of freezer. Nope, Not me! If this had happened.... my husband wouldn't have been the one to discover my oops moment!

I did not come home from church yesterday & use the baby's lack of sleep as an excuse to go cuddle & nap in the bed w/ her till AWANA. Nope, I was too busy cleaning up this place!

I do not look at new babies & get a bit jealous! Nope, I'm too busy enjoying my rapidly growing children to even notice other peoples babies! :)

I'm not secretly relived that AWANA is over till August! No.... not me!

I don't waste too much time on Facebook each day when I know I have tons of other stuff to do. See, I only get on Facebook as time permits & if all my other chores are done!

I guess that's all for now.... really it isn't but I'm NOT too tired to think of all my other things I need to confess this week! :)

Eliza's 1st food

March 9, we gave Eliza her 1st bites of food. We started her off on some Gerber rice cereal.
She was skeptical in the beginning, but became excited as time went on. Now she's eating baby cereal twice a day w/ a fruit or veggie at each feeding. She loves her food!

Yellow Belt Test

In March, Davis tested for his yellow belt. He did so well & we are so proud of him. I think I was more nervous than he was! LOL

March pictures

Here are some pictures from March..... at least what I had saved on Kodak gallery.

5 Year Checkup

Today Davis went for his 5 year check up. He did so well & I am so proud of what a big boy he's becoming.
His physical & check up went so well. He was once again declared "perfect"! He's on the tall size for his age, passed his hearing test, had 3 shots, peed in a cup, & had his blood drawn. He also had an x-ray taken on his tonsils b/c they're so large.
All in all, we were there for about an hour & he was so patient & such a good boy.
The best part of the visit for him was that we found out that he doesn't have to have another shot till his 7 or 8 year check up!!! That made him happy. LOL
After the appointment, we went to Target & then met Daddy for lunch. We had a great day together & now we're finishing up the day w/ Family Movie Night! As I'm typing this blog, the boys are on the couch, Eliza is in the floor playing, & I'm on the love seat watching Alvin & The Chipmunks.
Gotta love this life!

Davis turns 5!

Our baby boy turned 5 on March 14. Where has time gone?
Now that he's 5, it's a whole new world! Kindergarten, Legos, playing the wii.....
We celebrated with a party at Incredible Dave's with a few of his friends.
He is obsessed w/ Star Wars & Star Wars Legos right now! So, he had a Star Wars party.
I now have a 5 year old. As sad as I am, I will say that I'm looking forward to the fun times that being 5 will bring. He's growing up! I just hope that we're raising him to be a good young man.

Annabelle May 2001-March 2010

In March we had to put our sweet Annabelle down. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make. Words cannot express how awful the experience was & how much I regretted my decision for days after losing her.
As time has passed, I know it was for the best. She was old & sick & the best decision for our family. It's hard to remember our lives w/o her & we still miss & think of her daily. I still think I see her in the house or that she's in bed w/ me at night.
Davis seemed to understand & did very well w/ her going to heaven.
Bowie had trouble & seemed depressed for a few weeks after losing his sister & best friend, but seems to be doing well now.
This pictures was taken just days before she died.


Just to catch ya'll up.....

In February, Eliza turned 3 months old &..........ummm..... yeah, I've got nothing!
Here are some pics that did get salvage from our computer crash 2010!

Computer Problems

So, I had all these pics from the past several months that I was excited about blogging about.
For instance, Davis went to the eye Dr for the 1st time, Eliza's 1st Easter, & our lives as a foursome. We lost it..... not our minds, but almost. The pictures. Not all of them, but most of them.
I'm sad b/c when we went to the eye Dr, Davis tried on glasses (he didn't need them) & made silly faces while I took pictures.
My favorite was a picture of him wearing big fish bowl glasses & making a fish face! I can't get that image out of my head! It was so cute. Instead of sharing the picture, I share the story. I need to go back this weekend to pick up my glasses (that I did need) & Danny suggested we do a retake.
Maybe... just maybe!
