Wonderful Wednesdays

I just love Wednesdays! To start, it's the one day off during the week that I have the house all to my self from 7:40am to 1:30pm. I can get some cleaning done without interruption, I can blog, I can search fun things, read great stories and drink a whole cup of HOT coffee, again without interruption. It's amazing how good it feels to have a few hours to ones self. After kids come along you cherish those quite moments to yourself more than ever. Don't get me wrong, by the end of the day I need those noises back or the house starts to feel lonely.

This week at Simple Mom there's lots of great giveways. Check it out!

And, don't forget to water all of those beautiful flowers you planted this spring (This is really a reminder to self, off I go to do that now!)

Spring Concert on May 12th

The kids had their school concert on Tuesday. I didn't get any pictures of them on stage because our seats were to far back and no video since I've misplaced the charger (6+ months ago) to my video camera.

Ethan's Class sang "Danny Boy" and "I've Been Working on the Railroad". He says he doesn't like to sing but I think he really does, his head was bouncing as he was singing...very cute.
Audrey's Class sang "It's a Small World" and "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" Audrey loves to sing.
A couple of silly kids after the concert:

Mother's Day Gifts

My favorite kind of gift is a homemade gift by the kids. I love the thoughtfulness that goes into them. On Mother's Day morning Audrey woke up at 6:00am on a mission . She came into my room wanting a basket, actually the basket that Ethan has his Transformers in with a bijillion pieces. I told her she couldn't have it (while 1/2 a sleep), she continued you to carry on for a long time (still trying to sleep), finally I remembered a basket she could use and then it was quite for a while. Then she came into my room to wake me up because she couldn't wait for me to see all the gifts she made for me. Audrey always makes the most of every holiday.

Eric got me a new Starbucks Travel Mug and a CD

Audrey's basket full of goodies

Ethan made me a very beautiful vase of flowers with lots of xxx&ooo's.

Meet Our First child "Trixie"

We got her 12 years ago this month, she was a birthday gift from my husband to be (we were engaged at the time). He went and picked her out at a local shelter without me because I'm too sensitive, I can't handle seeing all of those homeless animals. She is a mix of terrier/collie and who knows what else. She is such a great dog, she's gentle, loving and listens so well. We couldn't ask for a better dog. She loves to ride in the car, go for walks, sleep on my side of the bed (because my husband won't put up with it on his side) And most of all she adjusted to two kiddos joining the family. We love her so much.

One Big Oreo Cookie

I saw this cake pan on this blog and fell in love with it. I've been debating on whether to get it or not because I'm concerned what type of frosting would hold up the weight of the top layer ? Frosting is not my specialty, so if anyone knows what type of frosting would work best I may splurge and get it.
What a hit this would make with the kids and adults.....It's so darn cute!
