This is Ayla's favorite thing to do! Every evening she plays Van Halen's Guitar Hero with her Daddy! There are three songs that she plays over and over and she already has the words memorized. Cracks me up! Here is a little video of her, John and my brother in law playing a song. This is HILARIOUS!! Trust me it is worth watching the whole three minutes!
She loves music so much, and she actually has pretty good rhythm for her age! She would stay down stairs and play the guitar for hours I think!
On another note, I wanted to thank everyone for entering the giveaway. I love giving to others, so this is so exciting for me. I also make jewelrey and a few other things, so I already have other giveaways lined up!! I will post a winner this Saturday so you still have time to enter here if you have not already!
This Thursday we took the kids to see Disney on Ice. Ayla absolutely loved it. She sat and watched the whole entire show while clapping her hands. She was so cute, she had to know EVERY single character's name. For the ones we didn't know, we just started making them up..lol. Of course her favorites were all of the Princesse's and Mickey Mouse. They had all of the Mickey Mouse Characters except for Daisy Duck. Ayla asked the whole night where Daisy Duck was and you can't just say, "I don't know" to Ayla, she wants an explanation. So I was telling her Daisy wasn't feeling well etc..and then at the VERY end they finally had Daisy in the last act so she was thrilled! Brennan was interested in about the first 45 minutes and then after that he was bored, so he played games on my I-phone the rest of the night! Luckily, we were able to make it through the entire show without buying ONE THING. They did not ask for anything while we were there, no toys, no food, no nothing!! So it ended up being a pretty cheap but very FUN evening! I love seeing my kids so happy, I would do anything to see that smile on their face!
So Friday night my baby sister came over and stayed the night. Her husband was out of town for the weekend and so we had a slumber party..hehe! We ate popcorn and watched American Idol, It was a great time! She is working on starting her own blog and I am sooo excited. She is an excellent writer, she just wrote two articles that were published on line and I can't wait to share them with you! She is such a cutie, you all will love her!
Saturday was a lazy day. John was on call this weekend so he was working Saturday morning. At some point Saturday afternoon, a friend texted me wishing John and I a happy anniversary. What? Did I read my text right, it can't be my anniversary...gasp...look at the calendar, sure enough it is our 6 year anniversary! How terrible is that? I mean I know I am lucky if I even know what day it is much less the date but... I felt really bad. After I spoke with John from work that afternoon, I felt a little better because he had forgotten too!! My sister was nice enough to come over so we could go out to dinner and a movie. We saw "The Edge Of Darkness" and I don't want to spoil anything for you if you want to see it, but If I were you, I would wait and rent it! Yeah, um not a anniversary type of movie! When we got home from the movie, my sister and the kids had made us brownie cupcakes...yum!!
Today was grocery store day so nothing too exciting going on here. It was 50 degrees and sunny so we were able to take the kids outside and go for a walk. It was so nice, I am so ready for the warm weather. Our vacation is not until August so we are debating on going to Disney at the end of April! One day we want to and then the next we are like well maybe we should wait until next year. So, we are not sure yet, they are having a special right now and it ends in March so we will definitely have to know before then!
Do you all remember how Ayla just got a new bedroom makeover? Well, we bought the flower and butterfly wallie type things. John painted the stems of the flowers and then we used the wallies for the flower part. And we placed them strategically throughout the room so it would not look like we just slapped a bunch of stickers on the wall.....well....as I was putting Ayla down for a nap a week or so ago, I saw this....
I guess Ayla had her own decorating ideas. She had gathered almost all of the flowers and butterflies off of the wall and lined them up on the wall inside her bed! So now there are a bunch of flower stems painted on the walls without a flower (you can see a couple of them in the pic) I just had to laugh about it. I guess John will have to PAINT all of the flowers now!!
Two more things, I noticed that everyone in blog land has a CHI flat iron. I have been looking for one and I can not believe how much these things are. Seriously $110 and that is for a cheap one. Is it really worth it? I really want one but I am not sure that I want to pay that. I mean for that price my hair should be looking like I just stepped out of the saloon each time I use it. So I need your advice on this one. Is there some place to get this cheaper or is that price about right?
Okay, lastly I thought I would share another GREAT find I found this weekend while at Target. I just happened to walk by the shoe department and these caught my eye.
They look just like Lelli Kelly shoes but much cheaper. In fact they were on sale for $12 a piece! Ayla wore the sandals all day Saturday, she calls them her princess shoes! Anyway, just thought I would let you know in case you are like me and you can't resist a cute pair of shoes!
Hope everyone had a great weekend! I can't wait to check out all of my new follower's blogs! I am so excited to meet my new friends!!
