Easter cottage

Here is a little Easter cottage I made.
I used cardboard and added lace, ribbon and
easter eggs. It came out so good!!
It looks so sweet.
It took some time but it was worth it.
It is now added to my etsy shop!
The weekend has been a busy one. Getting things
done and battling colds and sniffles.
My husband got into a car accident and Thank God he
is ok!! So if everyone can keep us in your prayers-
we'd greatly appreciate it!!
Have a blessed Sunday!

My 1st lattice plate

Oh I was so excited to find this milk glass
lattice plate for only 50 cents!!!
This is not my first milk glass piece, but it is my first lattice plate!!
What a find!
Same old stuff today- Megan came home sick- so now the fun begins!!
Mikayla had baton twirling today but we couldn't take them to the park as Megan
is not well.
Tommorow Michelle has a Show What You Know night at school where she will
showcase her project she worked really hard on!!
Madison now recognizes some letters of the alphabet!!
I am so excited- she know most colors and now a few letters!!

Living room and Pretty in PINK

I just love the pretty pink frame.
I added it to my etsy and I think it is so pretty I wanted to blog about it!
I am getting really close to 100 posts too!!!

I'm stuck

I guess sometimes we all get stuck!!
Poor Megan couldn't figure out how to get out of this one!!
We take the kids the kids to the park once a week and they sure love it!

We are Family!

In the rare event at least two of my children are getting along- I have to capture it on camera!!
Even though there is nearly 4 years between the baby and the twins she is almost just a big as the tiny pair!
Maddie favorite name to say is Meggy!!
Shortly after the picture was taken I had to peel the sweet innocent baby off her bigger sister!!
Now thats more like it!!!
Today we took a trip to the local McDonalds and on the way we picked up Jacob. He is a dear friend to my girls and has been in love with the twins since they were babies and they love him like a brother! Now Maddie... not so much!! Jacob is her man!!
Isn't that funny?!??!
Here is a pic of them at their favorite place to dine!
And so the weekend comes along and the phone still keeps ringing for Mikayla and poor Michelle can't get to the phone if she tried~
Michelle had dance today and we are doing another fundraiser next month for our big Disney trip. We are all excited as the last time we went was when Michelle was 5 and the twins weren't born yet!!
Here is a pic of my little Hannah Montana wanna be!! She found the Hannah wig at Claires on sale for 12.00 ( 12.00 too much if you ask me) but the girls get a kick out of it!!
Please excuse the disorder- I have no clue how the get the pics in order!!!!

And so the phone keeps ringing......

The funny thing about all these girls.... when the phone rings, chances are it is NOT for me!!
And so yesterday Mikayla comes home from school and says
"Mommy I gave our number to my friend Megan, and I got hers!"
Wow- I couldn't be happier! Another child at that school has our number!!!
And so here she is calling her little friend who just wasn't home yet. so I guess Mikayla thinks that if she holds the phone and keeps asking if she can call her yet again- will make the phone ring for her!
Finally her friend calls and all is well....
Here is a snapshot of little Mikayla on the phone with her friend in her messy room
(notice the mess..... are these kids really mine?!?!?)

My Projects

I have been busy working on some projects.
Here are a few items I listed on my etsy shop.
Our family is taking a big Disney trip with my daughters dance school and
I am hoping to raise money to help fund the trip.
Since I stay home I am trying to help the family without having to leave
our home. I'm thinking more ebay as well.
It's hard with four small kids and working- I know many Moms do it- but I don't how!!!
I give you all alot of credit!!
Just the other day I got a call from the school- someone is in the clinic!!
And Dr appoinments?!?!?!? Oh my!!!!
I worked last year and I think I called off more than I was there!! We all got so sick and when one kids was sick, the others were sure to follow the next week!!!
So here I am listing some items on etsy!

Toddler time at the Library

My second post today I had to post on toddler time at the library.
Madison thought she was going to school- she stood nice for the pic in front of the library and then the second pic she is walking away from me- all on her own to the library doors- she didn't want me to hold her hand!!
The other pics of her hard at work reading before the program began.
At the toddler time actiity two stories were read, we sang a few songs and made a craft.
Here is a picture of her holding up her project she made this week.

Crockin Chicken

I just have to share this recipe!!
Its called cheesey chicken and it was given to me by another Mom at my daughters dance classes.
It is super delicious!!!
You take some boneless skinless chicken breast,
cream of mushroom soup mixed with 1 can milk,
stove top stuffing,
cup up some chedder cheese and 1 stick of butter and stick it in the crock pot!!
It is so good!!! We put it on top of rice! Yummy!!!
I just had to share this!
I love using the crock pot on nights I have to run!!
