Catching up!


I have been working a lot lately so I haven't had the time (or the energy quite frankly) to update you all on the comings and goings here. Today is my first day off in a week!
Well, I will start by saying that Kailtyn is 98% potty trained. 98%? Yes - She goes pee and poop in the potty AND sleeps in her big girl panties but refuses to go potty outside of home. We don't go places very often so it's fine by me. The other night was my Papo's 74Th birthday and we all went over to celebrate it (which I will talk about later) and I asked Kaitlyn 3 times if she had to go potty - then she comes running in from outside, naked as the day she was born, and proudly announces " I went PEE PEE in the yard"! LOL. Well, at least she didn't pee her pants!

Back to the birthday - My grandpa is 74! He is doing pretty well all things considered. His Parkinson's is advancing but the therapy he is getting really helps keep his muscles from stiffening up. I think he really enjoyed our company. All the kids (and Mike) went outside to play softball and had a great time! Oh - when we pulled up this is what we saw:




Isn't that amazing? I thought it was a beautiful site. That hive was probably as big as a basketball. Can you imagine how long it took them to build that? Needless to say they called an exterminator and it will be gone soon.

Here are a few pics from the party:

The best people in the world - my granny & my daughter



Playing ball

Yesterday we filled up the pool (even tho it had a leak) and built a home-made water slide! The kids absolutely loved it! I was cracking up at them! It was SO hot yesterday when I got home from work - I knew the kids were probably hot and miserable. We all had a good time - even when they were splashing Jamie and I!






After pool time my husband took me out on a date! We went to dinner and a movie! It was nice! We saw the new batman movie and it was really good! It was nice to get out of the house for the evening! Mike and I thought we had better take advantage of Jamie being here before she leaves in a week!


Heath Ledger was amazing - It was sad - it was probably the best performance of his career. Well, that's all I have time for today!



Check back soon!

I'm so glad that you got to go out with your hubby. Looks like you guys had a fun afternoon in the sun/water. I can't believe that beehive!
