Girls Weekend!

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Happy Hump Day.
This week has felt so long to me... probably because I got NO rest over the weekend!
But that means it was a good and fun weekend!

Thursday night Jamie and I met some friends at Dave and Busters for a fun date night!

 We may have spent WAY too much money but we won Nicklas Flash and Batman!! 
He was so excited when we brought them home for him!  We won him Superman at our last trip to Dave and Busters so now we have to get Robin next time! ha!

Nicklas had the best time with his babysitter Jenna!



Friday morning I took Nicklas to the dentist!  He loves playing in the waiting room!

Jamie left early Friday morning for a golf retreat.  He sent me this picture of his view!

 My friends, Jess and Carrie, came to stay with me while all of our husbands were away golfing!
Jess has a little girl named Ady who Nicklas LOVES!
He even had to get in her pac and play to play with her toys.

 Nicklas did share his monster trucks and Lightning toys with Ady... proves how much he loves her!

Saturday morning we woke up and made french toast, eggs, and bacon and then spent the rest of the day shopping!  Saturday night I got a babysitter for Nicklas and us girls went out to celebrate Jess' birthday.
First stop pedicures!

 Second stop mexican!  We embarrassed Jess and then had the best sweet potato cake ever!  Sounds nasty but really... its awesome!

 Sunday after church Carrie had us over for lunch.  Then we all went to our own homes and rested after our fun filled weekend together!  Thanks girls... I had a blast!

This sweet boy was super excited to see his daddy get home!






Spring Break

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

The dental office I work at closes for Spring Break so I get to spend some fun time with my sweet monkey!

While eating breakfast I put on the movie Bolt.  He was hooked!!!  He sat like this with his hand inches from his mouth for like 3 minutes.  Bolt is serious!

 My sweet Brooklyn spent the day with us one day.  My mom dropped her off super early on her way to work so I woke up and we played a little bit just me and her before we woke up Nicklas and Boy Jamie.

 Then I made a big breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes and fruit for everyone.  These 2 were so excited to see each other... and you can tell they are both in the middle of saying cheese!! haha!!

We practiced Easter egg hunting!!  Both kids loved doing that!!  

 I made a big lunch and let the kids watch TV while they ate.  I was also on my 3rd cup of coffee by this time! :)


When I finally changed Nick out of his pj's, I had to put him in his batman shirt since Brooke was wearing her batgirl shirt... but getting a picture of a 2 1/2 year old and a 4 year old was not easy!


Both kids were starting to get a little moody so I gave them a blanket and put on Frozen.

And then one of them fell off to sleep!

 And then the second... who only slept for 20 minutes!

After Brooke woke up we did some fishing!!

Mid afternoon it had finally dried up enough to get out of the house.  The kids played some golf while Boy Jamie cleaned up and did some raking.  I sat on my rear end and watched... my 3 cups of coffee were gone!

 About 10 minutes after Brooke left this happened!!  Which made for a really late night for this mommy!!  Not so sure I could handle the 2 kid thing full time!

Nicklas has really gotten into youtube videos of cartoons singing nursery rhymes!  He sings along and laughs!  Its hilarious!

One day during our spring break we headed out to the zoo!  Nicklas LOVED the giraffe.  He kept saying "Giraffe...come on!" 







He loved the snakes and alligators also... pure boy.  There was also a huge black pig... which Nick called a hippo they whole time!  I thought it was pretty funny!  Thanks Aunt Elizabeth for going with us!!

So daycare was open the week of spring break so I decided I was going to take nick one day.  Hey I have to pay even if he doesn't go so I should get one day of getting to lay around in my pj's!  I went to have lunch with my mo in law and this was my view!  It was perfect!

We have started discussing putting our house on the market so one evening we drove around to look at some houses. It bored Nicklas!

Nicklas also loves to watch trains on youtube.  My laptop battery is always dead lately!!

Jamie sent me this pic after he got Nicklas ready to take him to school.  I mean who is this big kid on my couch and were did my baby go?!?!

 My weekend is going to spent with 2 boys who want to watch the Masters all day long. So if you want some company and will allow me to sit in my pj's and will watch chick flicks or Real Housewives with me let me know!! :)

Easter 2015

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

So here I am finally catching up.

I wanted to remind you to check out my last blog post here - I am hosting my first giveaway and you have 2 days left to enter!!

We had a fun filled weekend full of Easter activities!

Our first activity was on Saturday.  The church my father in law preaches at had an Easter gathering.  It was cold so we wrapped up and headed out. 

Nicklas did so well!  All our practice paid off, ha!!

Please look at the mini rat tail hanging out of the back of his hat! ha!!


Sunday morning Nicklas woke up and had to go check out what the Easter bunny had brought him!

Monster trucks, A Blaze t-shirt and candy... what else does a 2 year old little boy need!! :)



The Easter bunny brought Nicklas some yummy Recees Pieces so I decided to make Recees Pieces pancakes!!  They were a hit!


But Nicklas still needed peeps for dessert... I mean... It is Easter so why not!

After breakfast we headed to my parents house because the Easter bunny stopped there also!!


Easter Sunday was also my Nannans birthday!!  The kids loved singing Happy Birthday to her and spitting all over the cake helping her blow out the candles!




After cake it was time to hunt some more eggs!  Both kids did so good... I found out that after reading in my blog that Nicklas was practicing, Brooke started practicing too... cheaters!! ;)

After hunting eggs 2 or 15 times we went and played on Jake.  It amazes me that when we first got Jake Nicklas couldn't swing by himself and now he just goes and goes!  



Pupol even took a turn swinging.  Nicklas thought this was hilarious!



We had to say good bye to everyone and head to Grandma Pruitts for dinner and more egg hunting.  We found out that the Easter bunny also stopped at Grammie and Poppys AND Grandma Pruitts house.  Nicklas must have been a very good boy this year!

A full day of egg hunting really makes you sleepy.  But as soon as he heard poppy and the chickens Nicklas woke up!!  

By the end of all the egg hunting Nicklas was a pro!!  

We are truly blessed that we were able to spend Easter with all of our families!  Nicklas still doesn't really get the true meaning of Easter but next year I can't wait to share with him the real meaning of this wonderful day.  He Is Risen.
