The Peditrician and Pizza, Pizza

I had to take Babe Magnet and Ladies Man  to the Pediatrician today. To check on some fluid in Shawn's ears, he was fine he didn't have any.

Why is it that my Dr's office has dirty paper blocks to play with while your waiting instead of something plastic they can wipe down with bleach wipes, are they trying to get my kids sick every time I go there? Then they are sitting on the floor the whole thing is gross.

Later this afternoon I had to run to Blake's School and pick up the Little Caesars Pizza Kit orders that we bought for a fundraiser and of course he wanted to make one that night for dinner. It tastes just like delivery. It has been forever since I've crazy bread, so good. Blake had fun playing chef.

Hulk Hands

Blake is Big into wearing sunglasses this week, today he has them on upside down. And he and Shawn are into running around the living room and chasing with hulk hands. Blake likes to do it while wearing his sunglasses. I don't know if youve ever tried Hulk Hands but they are awesome. They are big and foamy and the yell when you hit them against things.

He's looking very Bieber-esk today without gel dontcha think?

Cake Tasting

Kevin and I volunteered to make Mike and Sarah's Wedding Cake and although we bake alot, I have never had the need to attempt a wedding cake. Last night Sarah and Mike came in town and wanted to do a cake tasting of different flavors. We decided to do a trial run. I don't like the way fondant tastes even though it turns out beautiful its the taste that counts for me. So we did all homemade buttercream, 4 tier, each tier a different flavor. We did the traditional vanilla/vanilla, regular buttercream/yellow cake, chocolate, and then tried different buttercreams including coffee and peanut butter flavor all homemade. The coffee I thought I would hate but it was amazing and the peanut butter too. It was all good. I kind of ran out of time because Kevin was at work and I had the 2 kids all day so I was about to cry because we couldn't find a icing smoother so the cake was all rough and and looked horrible. I told Sarah on the way over I would put in to buy a Wedding cake because I wasn't happy with it. Suprisingly when they got there she said smoothed it would be fine. I'm like ok are you crazy? I guess I am my worst critic. But it WILL be smooth for the wedding!

 I had my brother and Nikol over too so we could all have some cake and the guys could play video games while the girls glittered Easter eggs for an egg tree. After a million hours of baking I wasn't too into doing eggs so I'll post my finsihed product at a later date, I only got about half way through glittering them.

Cake Tasting! Yum!

It was a crazy day at my house. My nephews had off for President's Day so I asked to babysit. The four boys had a ball. We went to the beach, played board games, toys, painted pictures and played duck duck goose and hide and go seek.

Yes, Shawn got a hold of the paint, don't worry its non toxic

Valentine's Exchange Cards

As you already know we are holiday crazy. Valentine's Day is no exception. I remember doing shoebox mailboxes in school and how fun it was to pass out and get cards. So I volunteered to decorate mailboxes with the kids in Blake's class and to do an exchange during his V-Day party. His party is tomorrow here he is is putting his cards together. He was so excited, he kept asking me can we go to school now mommy? Me- it's dark out your going to bed soon baby.

Charlotte's Web

          I planted impaitents mid January here are my babies    
               showing them off check out the fur crocs

           So here are the flowers today looking good....

 While feeding the other flowers I decided to plant the leftover flowers from the shower and I as I was planting the taller plants right behind were brushing the top of my head and I felt a spiderweb on the 3rd one in. So I look up and see this......
 This nasty wolfman looking spider curled up sleeping was probably brushed up against my hair a second before, it gave me the chills. Kevin planted the rest when he got home. We figured out it was nocturnal and have been checking on it as we are coming or going and started to call it Charlotte. I googled brown nocturnal spider FL last night and started freaking out because Brown Recluse Spider kept coming up which is very venomous. So Kevin and I go outside in the middle of the night holding a flashlight and starting taking pictures of it I'm basically on his back scared its going to jump and zooming in so we can figure out if thats what it is. Luckily it ended up being a tropical orb spider, harmless, just gross.
