Marine Day!!

Awesome afternoon at Marine Day!! They had a lot of cool activities for the little ones. Evan loved playing with the colored sand & going on the huge inflatable slide.  Fun filled day....the boys are all tired out now =)

Lowe's Kids Worskshop

This morning we went to the Lowe's workshop & Evan was a bit bummed because he was looking forward to working on a firetruck but we were told that they were recalled so instead ,we worked on an awesome puppet theatre!! Evan is almost a pro at hammering the nails (maybe he can help dad around the house). lol  Oh, and once he saw the real firetruck & ambulance that were there...he forgot about everything else! He was allowed to sit in the firetruck and little man was in heaven =)

Candy Corn Worsksheets

Since Evan & I are candy corn fanatics....I printed these cute sheets for Evan to work on. He was anxious to complete his candy corn math so he could eat them all. lol

Another Year Younger

Recently celebrated my birthday and I always like to think I'm getting younger instead of older (young at heart anyways). lol My guys surprised me with this beautiful rasberry cheesecake that was beyond delicious!! I'm so thankful for another year of life, another year to enjoy watching my boys grow up, another year to learn more, live more, & love more.

                      ~~     It takes a long time to grow young~~
~~And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years~~

Pom Poms with Numbers!


Found these great printables at 1+1+1=1 and Evan had a blast doing them! He knows all of his numbers so this was something he could do more independently. I didn't laminate them or cut them into separate squares otherwise they'd end up all over the place =) He was so proud of himself & couldn't wait to show his work  to daddy as soon as we walked through the door. lol

Feelings Lapbook

This was an awesome Lapbook for Evan to do because the 1st thing they do every morning at his preschool is send them to the front of the classroom & ask them how they are feeling. Evan has to pick a laminated square with an expression (which is always the smily face) and he says to the class "I AM HAPPY!!" Cutest thing ever!! This was lots of fun because I would state a feeling & Evan would act it out (his angry expression was hysterical...he sounded like the hulk). lol We got the great idea from & were able to download the pages to complete the lapbook from that site. All of the books we read were awesome! Evan's favorite was, How Are You Peeling?,  which used to be Gio's book when he was small. We also own My Many Colored Days, The Loveables, and The Way I Feel....Evan loves them all (and so do I). lol Here are some pictures =)

Savings Galore!!

Just had to post some great deals I got yesterday thanks to the heads up from Mojo Savings. The packages of 184 count Huggies Wipes were on sale for $3.99 each with the $2 coupon from the Walgreen Booklet (found in the store). I also had a $1 coupon for Huggie wipes which they let me use. General Mills cereals were on sale for $1.99 and I got $2 off with another coupon. I also got a chapstick (they go like crazy here) which ended up costing me 50 cents with a coupon from the Walgreen Booklet. Shout stain remover was 2 for $5 but there was only 1 left so I got it half off & the Xcel detergets were on sale for $1.99 each!! My total savings was $18.99!! I'm always happy when I can save a few bucks =)

I also saw this coupon on Mojo Savings
I printed the $1 off coupon and the cost of the Avery Label Pads were $1 at Staples so I got them for free =)

Another great savings from Staples was the HammerMill copy paper. The cost was $5.99 with $1 instant rebate, then you apply for the $4.49 easy rebate online (which was very simple to complete), and the total cost comes out to 50 cents!!  Super deal!!

Gio's B-day

We bought Gio an Oreo cake on Sunday for his B-day & it was delicious!! Thanks to my friend Misty who gave me the idea =) Didn't get to do way too much besides take him to I-Hop for dinner the night before but he was totally okay with it. This year things have been hectic since his B-day fell on the Wednesday of the 1st week of school.  All he wanted was an SD card for his Nintendo DS (he was bugging me for months) so I got him one and he was on cloud 9. My little boy is all grown up (*tear*).  I'm going to be a wreck when they all go off to college in a few years.
