Movies, Bracelet and Dolls

I started this weekend out by seeing "Letters to Juliet" with my girlfriend. Okay ladies, you MUST see this movie. It is the romantic " only in the movies kind of romance" that us girls go gaga If you like romantic comedies, then you will definitely like this movie! Oh and Dear John is coming out on dvd Tuesday so I can't wait to watch that too!!


On Saturday morning I scored this Fisher Price Loving Family doll house and accessories for Ayla at a yard sale. She LOVES it and has played with it all weekend. The best part is I only paid $20 for all of it. It is in perfect condition with not even a scratch. She loved it so much that she has been asking for a car to put her "family" in, so of course Mommy took her to the store today so she could get a car for her family!



On Saturday Ayla and Daddy had a date to go and see Shrek at the movies. I snapped a few pictures before she left. And yes she always picks her clothes, shoes, necklaces etc when she goes somewhere. She is also very particular about everything matching! She actually had a purse that she took too! She stuffed all of her doll house figures into it, I guess they wanted to see Shrek too!




Last but definitely not least I received all of these goodies in the mail this weekend. I joined a bracelet swap over at Maria's blog, "Two Hearts Made Four" and Maria and I ended up being partners. She was so sweet to send me this pink beaded bracelet (which I love) and some other goodies for the kids. Ayla was so excited about the princess socks, she loved everything and kept saying "Thank you" over and over. Thank you Maria, you are too kind, I am so glad we have became friends!

Kaleb got his License!

Okay I just wanted to brag on my first born, Kaleb finally got his license yesterday and I am so proud of him! It has been a long time coming, right after he got his Lerner's we had a ton of snow and bad weather and then he broke his collar bone and was out of commission for over two months. Soooooo now he can run errands for his momma and I am so excited...hehe!





I really feel like I have been out of the blogging loop lately. I have been so exhausted at night (when I normally blog), that I have been going to bed instead of staying up late blogging and reading the blogs that I follow. I hope to get caught up with everyone tonight (fingers crossed). I am sure that you all know that it is impossible to do anything during the day especially when most days my children do not take naps. Anyway, here are a few pictures to show you what we have been up to lately!!





We let Ayla use sidewalk chalk for the FIRST time last week. I know we are bad parents, but she really had no interest until now. After she made a mess, I mean drew lovely pictures on our front porch, she went to ride her brand new bike that Daddy just bought her. He surprised her last week on "shot" night and she loves it. She rides it every day. She can pedal it all by herself and she actually rode it around our subdivision the other day for a mile and a half!!






Here she is on her new bike!




Lastly, we went to a local Armed Forces day Parade on Saturday and the kids had a blast. They were decked out in their red, white and blue and were waving flags the whole time. They were so cute and they didn't mind the candy that was being thrown at them either!! Brennan actually made the news!!






I hope everyone has a great week. I am excited to watch American Idol tonight and the Biggest Loser! AI is down to the last three, I think the final two will be Crytal and Lee. Either one winning would be fine with me. They will both get a recording contract I'm sure! The Bachelorette starts next week...yippee!! How funny, a commercial just came on for Kings Island (an amusement park) and Ayla said, "Look Mom, super cool"...oh how funny, three going on 16 I tell you!!

Hollywood Studios

We had an awesome day at Hollywood studios. We spent the entire day there and had a blast. We got there early so the kids were able to see all of the characters again. The Rock and Roll roller coaster, Tower of Terror and the Toy Story ride were among our favorites. This is the first year that Kaleb has rode any of the roller coasters, so it was a lot of fun! They have a variety of musical shows that the kids loved as well. All of the guys went to a stunt show while the girls went to watch "The Little Mermaid". Oh and they have the best parade, I think it was called the "Block Party Bash", where for thirty minutes the Disney Pixar characters have a huge dance party in the street. It was a ton of fun an the kids loved it. Ayla even decided to get her face painted for the first time ever. She has always been scared to do it but after she saw her friends Ella and Makena do it, she wanted to join in on the fun. She picked out the "Tinkerbell" face and all day long she kept saying, "Mom am I still Tinkerbell", it was sooo cute!













The "Block Party Bash"










For lunch we had reservations at the Prime Time Cafe. It is a great 50's style restaurant that has black and white TV's at most of the tables. The TV's played clips of the 1955 sitcom "Father Knows Best" and the original "Mickey Mouse Club". The waitresses were so funny, if you had your elbows on the table, they would kindly remind you to get your elbows off of the table. They are known for their delicious fried chicken, meatloaf and pot roast cooked the way "Mom" used to make it.





Brennan was hanging over his high chair playing his I Pod....don't ask, I have no clue!


After a long day, we decided to go to Down Town Disney and eat dinner at Wolfgang Puck Cafe. By the time we got there Brennan had ruined the shorts that he was wearing (for the second time). As I went to change his diaper I realized that we had ran out of diapers. So everyone starts walking all over Disney to try and find a diaper. With no luck, one of us comes up with the idea to find someone with a child close to Brennan's size and ask if we can "borrow" a diaper. Omg it was so funny, all of us stalking all of the moms that were passing by. Finally someone was kind enough to loan us a diaper. Brennan still did not have any shorts because they were wet and I had already bought him one outfit that day because he ruined the first one he had on, so I just took him in with a diaper and shirt on and we were eating he threw up I just took him outside while everyone else finished eating. He was a MESS, but thankfully he felt ok after that. We finished the evening by doing a little shopping, the stores there are fabulous and they have the LARGEST Disney store I have EVER seen. It was great, the kids loved it. There was a Stitch Character on top of the store and every few seconds he would spit water out of his mouth. The kids thought this was the funniest thing ever. We must have sat there and watched it for at least 30 minutes. It was a very long day but Hollywood Studios is definitely my favorite part next to the Magic Kingdom of course!

Here is Stich spitting water....

and the kids thinking it is soooo hilarious!!


Oh and just for fun, look at ALL of these strollers....
