Just a Regular Day!

This one has a tendency of making massive messes in just seconds.

So while I was helping Molly go potty This is what was going on....

Stella managed to get the chips from the top shelf in the pantry, I honestly don't want to know how!

She emptied a whole package of graham crackers on the floor, walking over them to insure the most breakage also leading to the most crumbage (I know I think I just made up a new word, yea for me!) though out the whole house!

She also snaked one of my experimental Red Velvet cupcakes, apparently it wasn't a hit! So what do you find after helping your kids wipe and pull up there pants?

Molly's First Of School!

Molly's first day of school wasn't quite what you would expect! She didn't go! Monday night we were on our way home when she threw up all over the car. The poor kid was sick! Honestly I don't really know if she was sick or if it was just the nasty rotten milk I gave her on Sunday night... I didn't really look at the expiration date... uuuuu the 28th. No one else had even gotten an upset stomach, but poor Molly was shaking, barfing and the poor thing felt horrible. She was in the bathroom after she had thrown up and I was brushing her teeth when she said to me with the saddest face ever "I don't think I should go to school tomorrow." She started to cry. Oh I felt so bad. I just hugged her and I wanted to cry. She has been looking forward to this since the last day of school last year. She has been begging me to go back. In fact I had to make a count down calender for her so that she would know how many days left she had until school started.

So she got up and she seemed fine! I didn't send her... Just in case. She seemed fine all day long. So I took her when I knew that her class would be getting out and we went to meet her teachers and give them their little back to school gifts. I wanted Molly to get to meet her teachers and felt like she knew where she was going, being as everyone had a day up on her! Her teachers could not have been cuter! They took Molly by the hand and showed her the room, walking her all around and telling her what to do when she comes back tomorrow, really they are darling!

Molly gave them their little teacher gift. I tried to do something different this year. Molly's class didn't have a meet your teacher day so she was going in cold turkey. I though that It would be fun to do a little something that showed a little bit about who Molly is and what she likes and a little of her personality! So I came up with this...

I came up with new words to to the tune of "My Favorite Things" song form "The Sound Of Music" Then I printed them off with this picture and put it on a cute lunch box look a like and put in some crayons that we had melted down into letterers, some chap stick for make up and some chocolate covered in glob like wrappers for treats. Molly wrote a cute little note and I think her teachers really like it! The song went like this...

Bright golden arches, warm fries and cold sprite
Lake Powell in summer, with water just right
Dresses, and bowas, high hills, big fake rings
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad

Soft fleece green blankie, right thumb in my mouth
Movies and treats for those long trips down south
Helping sweet Stella with hair-stylings
These are a few of my favorite things


Playing with dollies and putting on make up
Having tea parties with milk in my cup
Crayons and markers to add to drawings
These are a few of my favorite things


After we went to visit her teachers we came home had some lunch and then put the kids down for a nap, Molly needed it after a sleepless night. Then when Kris got home we all went over and took some picture of Molly at her school on her first day! She was so cute! Love this girl! I can't believe that she has grown up so fast! Really where has the time gone. I dropped her off and really was so sad. I got in the car and Stella just looked at me and started to cry... "Where's Molly? Where's Molly? I want daddy!" I wanted to cry as well. Not only has my baby gone to school my other baby is freaked out she has to be all alone with me! But we made it, and Molly loved it! Stella realized it wasn't so bad. We had a fun day. We went to the park, daddy's office and the fabric store. All in all it's been a good week minus the few little hick ups here and there. We didn't get to have our Back to school FHE dinner due to sick kids... but it will be coming! Here are some back to school photos of My (not baby, boo!) big girl!

Labor Day! 2010

We had such a great Labor day... Well for most of it, but really it was a blast! My sister in law has a fabric business and was having an amazing sale for Labor day so we headed down to her house to check out the fabric, (So awesome BTW! I was in heaven.) She and my cute brother had a BBQ at their house for all of us! It was Delicious! I should have taken pictures of all of the food, it was so good and not just that, but looked beautiful! Not only did we get an awesome lunch, fantastic fabric, (which I got a ton of!) but awesome entertainment! Cam and Sierra have a dog Elanor... she is darling! My girls love to play with her (a.k.a. run away from her screaming and laughing nervously, and wanting to pet her but takes 5 min to get the courage to actually pet her.) Not only do they have a cute dog, but they have an awesome garden that they let my girls pick stuff out of and a coop full of chickens. Sierra was so cute and took the girls out there and let Molly and Stella collect the chicken eggs. We though we had gotten them all and then Stella started pointing to the ground yelling egg! We looked and sure enough there was an egg on the ground. She was so excited and way nervous as she picked up the egg. She kept saying that the chickens were going to get her or that she was scared, but she was so brave and totally got the egg, cracking another one when she put the one she got in the basket... Sorry Sierra! It was really fun! We had a great day. After leaving we headed to the park to meet up with some of Kris's fam. Molly just laid on the blanket and didn't really move. That is so not her! I knew that she didn't feel well. Kris had told his family we would do dinner with them, and had totally forgotten that we were doing the back to school night, so that is why we had gone to the park to hang out. We left and drove around for a bit and stopped at the store then headed home only to be about 4 blocks away when Molly barfed all over the car. Needless to say we didn't have our Back to school night, we still will sometime. We came home and I got Molly all showered, ready for bed with some meds while Kris (the most amazingly, wonderful, best, most incredible, husband ever) cleaned up the puke! Don't you all wish you were married to him? Sorry Girls! He's taken! What an awesome husband and dad he is! And that is where our nigh really ended. Molly got sick a few more times that night, but woke up fine the next day! All in all it was an awesome Labor Day! Thanks Cam and Sierra for hosting us all! What a blast!
