First time at Chuck E Cheese

Happy last day of March... or first day of April... whichever day you are reading this.  

Gotta admit... totally wish I knew someone who was pregnant so I could pull the best April Fools Day prank ever on my husband... he would totally pass out... and then ask who the baby belonged to! ha!

I had Wednesday and Thursday off from work for Spring Break so Kellyn and I decided to take the kids to see Nannan and Pupol on Wednesday.




I do believe that I have discussed on this blog in the past that REAL men ride pink!! :)


Real men also love catching on on their reading!



Sweet Holly just wants someone to play ball with her!

Nicklas loves sitting in his play room and watching television while he is winding down.


He also loves to sit in his chair on his mommy's lap.


This was Thursday morning.  I had big plans of getting up early and taking Nicklas to school ( I mean we did pay for a full week so Nicklas was going to go 3 out of 5 days... that craps expensive!) and then I was going to do grocery shopping and spring cleaning.  Well Nicklas had big plans of sleeping past 9:00... FYI... This never happens!


He did eventually wake up and I took him to school and got all of my plans done!  My house looks amazing.  And it better stay that way.  Jamie Pruitt if you are reading this... If I find boots at the back door or socks in the living room you will be moving out! :)

Lately Nick has been propping his foot up while watching TV... I think this is hilarious!!


Friday night we went to a small group class at our church that is made up of other couples with children.  We had a great time.  Nicklas also made a friend named Chloe.  She is precious!  Looks like they are on their first date!



Sunday we went to a birthday party for sweet Camille.





He is giving Chuck E Cheese a high five!

We had a wonderful time.  Thanks so much for inviting us Lindz!!


Nicklas partied a little too much!!

Tonight Jamie had softball practice and my dad was out of town so my mom, Kellyn, Brooklyn, Nicklas and I all had dinner together (thanks Kellyn) and hung out!!  

Right now I am hoping the weather in April is much better than the weather in March has been.  I am ready for spring and Easter.  I know the Easter bunny has been working really hard on Nicks Easter basket because he has been such a good boy but putting together an Easter basket for a 19 month old is hard.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?!  

Five on Friday

Happy Friday Ladies!!

As usual... I am linking up with Natasha @ hellohappiness for Five on Friday.

Two. Spring Break
The dentist that I work for closed our office Wednesday and Thursday because his kids were celebrating their spring break!!  Yes it snowed the beginning of this week but hey... I'll take time off whenever I get it... and yes I get it a lot.  One of the many perks of working for a dentist whose family is his number 1 priority!


Three.  Spring Cleaning
Since I have a 5 day weekend I decided ONE of those days was going to be spent doing some spring cleaning.  I always dread it but when I am done I feel soo much better!  I took Nicklas to school and dug in.  Cleaning also burns calories so I killed two birds with one stone! 


Four.  Crisis
You know I have to throw in a TV show in my Five on Friday.  Crisis is a new TV show this season that I am already addicted too!  I literally can't take my eyes off of the TV when it is on!  It also has some pretty cute actors which always helps!  I hope it continues to be as good!  Watch and let me know your thoughts!


Five. Brooklyn Nicole
I have to finish with my princess.  I mean it is still her birthday week.  I cannot believe she is already 3 years old!  Brooklyn Nicole I love you so!












My princess turns 3!!

We have had a busy but good week!  

We have decided to start introducing forks and spoons to Nicklas.  He started showing interest when Brooklyn would use hers so we knew it was time.



He played with it mostly but still used it a little bit.

Nicklas also came home with a little battle scar last week.


I call it a love bite... hey... its gonna happen!!  Sometimes I want to chew on him too!

I had a really hard week at work last week... Nicklas must have had a hard time at school also.


Jamie sent me this pic that he took of Nicklas and I on Thursday night... we were tired!


Nicklas must have been REALLY tired because he slept until 9:15 on Friday morning... of course I was up at 7:00.  

Friday I invited Kellyn and Brooklyn over because the weather was wonderful.  We got out all of our bubbles, side walk chalk, golf clubs and lawn mower to play.

























I LOVE all the shadows in the pictures.... Kellyn and I look like we are going to eat Nicklas and Brooke.
After playing we went in and had some lunch.


Then Brooke and Nicklas caught up on some TV.


While we weren't looking Nicklas and Brooklyn were snuggling and loving on each other.  I love it!

Saturday was Brooklyns 3rd birthday party.  We had just family and it was perfect.  I will be doing the same exact thing for Nick's party this year because we all remember how mad I got at Nicks 1 year old birthday party!  






















It was a perfect day!!  

Brooklyn Nicole,
I hope you know how much Uncle J, Nicklas and I love you.  You taught your uncle J and I what love really is when you were born 3 years ago!  You also are the one who made Uncle J and I realize that we wanted to have a baby who was just like you.  We love you to the moon and back!

My parents took Kellyn and Brooklyn to see Disney Live on Sunday for her birthday present.  Sophia and Jake were the main attractions.  I do believe that Brooke has converted to being a Jake fan.


Nick is excited about this because he loves Jake!!

We took some family pics while we were at my parents.





Love my little family of 3.

Little update on Nicklas:
He has started holding his hand up and telling me No or Stop
He fell the other night at the house and slit his frenum, which is actually a good thing, but there was lots of blood... and tears... from me and Nick.
Has quit crying when we drop him off at daycare!!  Woo Hoo!

Have a great week everyone!
