For the Times You Just Wish You Had a Hidden Camera

Like most thirty something women, I am a Twilight fanatic! I have read all four books, and cannot wait for the movies to come out in theater. When the first movie came out, Jason was very interested in going with me! When the second movie New Moon came out, he wanted to go, but was so ecstatic willing to let his beautiful wife have a GNO with Stacye! So, as soon as New Moon hit the shelves last weekend, being the fantastic beautiful wife I am, braved the Spring snowstorm on Saturday and purchased the blu-ray version for my DH's viewing pleasure! I am now under the complete opinion that unless you have read the books you must not watch the movies. And I declare another GNO right now for June 30th, to go see Eclipse! 
Now here is where I wish I had the hidden camera! I would so submit it to SNL!

 Jason's impression of the movie went something like this: Oh Bella I had plenty of time to do laundry in Twilight (shirt on), but now in New Moon there is no laundry soap (shirt off)-He just doesn't get it, but declares Team Edward all the way, LOL!

And, for the record, what thirty-something woman wouldn't become somewhat of a cougar after seeing Jacob/Taylor Lautner, that beautiful male species take his shirt off- oops, did I say that? BTW did you see the Ken doll version, they never made Ken look that good when I was a little girl? And no I did not buy it!
But, I am still a SUCKER, get it, for a good love story, so long live Edward and Bella....

Spring Break 2010

Okay, Okay, so legally I guess Braden is the only one around here who gets a Spring Break, but since we were all itching for some fun Springtime activities can't a Mom and little sister join in on the activities as well? It's really not fair for a nine year old boy to perform the day to day rituals that a SAHM does, right? He needed to have some fun during Spring Break right, and of course he had to have chaperones! See I reasoned it out enough, right? So here goes Spring Break 2010 for us, err, I mean Braden!

So Friday night after the Dodgeball Tournament, Braden made the decision to stay the night with Grandma, knowing that there was a party at Chuck-E-Cheese the next day for Faith, Kaybrie's Bestie. While at the party, holding Kaybrie who I might add was deathly afraid of the big fake cheese eater, I get a call from Braden and Grandma and Braden wants to come to the party, claiming he didn't know- oh no we did not play that game! Speaking of game playing though, Miss Kaybrie did finally play some games and did pretty well!

Was kind of an all around day! We went over to our friends the Harringtons. In the blog world the are known as All About the 6-Frogs. Anyway Kortney and I met with some wonderful women about our Women of Faith confererence coming up in August and made Flip Flops for our boys tackle football team fundraiser. Braden, Spencer and the boys played outside. And of course Kaybrie, Olivia and the girls played dolls and also played outside. We did have a scary moment though. One little boy, I believe he was five, fell into the pool, Praise God he got to the side where Lady Olivia, Kortney's daughter helped pull him out. Bless his heart he had never been in water over his head before. He was so thankful to Lady O, he kept saying that she saved him!
Here are the Breast Cancer Flip Flops. We are selling them for $12. A $2 Donation will be made to Susan G. Komen. Contact me if you want a pair. We make all team colors and sports with names!

We went to lunch at Los Cabos with Stacye, Faith and Baby Jack. Then we went to Niehius Park, where it proved to be much colder than we thought. Brrr.......come back Spring!!! Then we went on to buy groceries at Wal-Mart-can't just have fun ALL the time! But the kids did get a Pez, where was my camera?

Wednesday- Happy St. Patrick's Day
Braden went to visit his grandparents and Kaybrie and I went to Target, seems like there was something we had to have- oh, shoes! And Starbucks! Yep, Stacye introduced me to my new drink-Mocha Frappucino w/ a extra shot of expresso light and I got our diva in the making a Caramel Apple Cider! Isn't she just the cutest w/ her Starbucks cup?
Then we went home and made a chocolate cake. Jason's Great Aunt Elenora Crow is moving to Houston with her daughter Vicki. My MIL pulled off the best surprise birthday/going away party ever with 26 people which included friends and family. Aunt Nora never knew what hit her!
This is Aunt Elenora and my MIL, Betty: these two ladies are really gonna miss each other!

Zoo Day!!! Yay! Finally a day with my BFF Angie and her family! And boy was it crowded, of course the temps were in the mid 70's very nice for a picnic at the Zoo and that is just what we did!
Braden monkeying around!

All of the kids monkeying around, except for Hayden!
The kids actually went to the park bench and waited on the parents- PRICELESS!
The petting zoo is probably where we should have went to and stayed! That's where the animals were and where the kids had the most fun, besides the park!
Look at Little Sister petting the goat. She really enjoyed it!

We got up a early and got on our Easter best, WHAT? I finally scheduled Kaybrie's 3yr old professional portraits with my friend Serena. I am sooo happy with them. I will probably just do a slide show of all of them on the blog later, but here is probably one of my favorites of the kids together! Please if you are interested visit her website, look for her on facebook, book an appointment! She is wonderful!!!

I think know they love each other!!!

Now for Friday afternoon. I planned something for JUST the B'ster! A movie. Oh, yeah. The book series Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney has been turned into a movie. We invited his friend Sydney to go with us, and ended up meeting Kortney, Spencer, Dakota, and Olivia at the movie. The first movie was sold out, so we ended up shopping until the movie started. Can I just say I LOVED the movie. Kortney's friend Cathy also met us and out of all the adults in the movie our kids thought we were the coolest because
We laughed so hard, who knows, maybe we were wimpy kids in school, or maybe we were the cool kids picking on the wimpy kids- all I can hope for is that our kids are neither and learned valuable lessons from that movie!
Syndey, Braden & Spencer- shopping! I love the irony of the return sign behind them.

Saturday & Sunday
Can I just say, we have all heard the saying by Will Rogers "If you don't like the weather in Oklahoma, wait a minute and it'll change."
Well it did! We got 8 inches of snow over the weekend! Gotta love the 70 degree temps on Thursday and Friday to the freezing temps that like to bring winter like precipation on the first day of Spring. Hopefully this is the last blast, but it did snow last year on March 28th!
Look at the drifts on the roof!

Dodgeball Anyone?

Dodgeball means any game in which players try to hit other players with balls and avoid being hit, according to Wikipedia. The last time I played Dodgeball, I think was in Elementary School and I'm thinking I don't have very good memories....something along the lines of a big red bouncy ball being thrown and hitting me right square between the eyes. So when Braden was asked to play in a Dodgeball Tournament for a fundraiser for my friend Kortney's son, I didn't hesitate in asking him if he wanted to, he's the age I was when I last played and is ever bit as big as the boy who pegged me in the head, so I felt glad to turn over my $10 donation to let him have some fun!!!

Here are the "boys" lined up and ready to hit and dodge, they had so much fun!!!

The above picture is our favored men's team. It consisted of a few of Braden's football coaches and a few the team dad's. On another note, this Dodgeball stuff is actually getting to be a pretty serious sport. I was actually surprised at the number of adult teams that there were, and the serious competition involved. My MIL went with me not knowing what to expect and actually enjoyed it. I do not know the official count of players, or if the trend has taken off because of the 2004 movie that starred Ben Stiller, but I will tell you this, this will not be the last post I write on Dodgeball!

Well....Blechhh on Them!! Beauty doesn't have to be Picked, not in Moma's Eyes!

I warned my readers from this post last year that I would once again enter my little princess into the Regis & Kelly Beautiful Baby Search Contest. The top ten finalist were announced today, and once again she did not make the cut. I am sure that with so many millions of submissions that her picture just got lost in the piles and piles of pictures. One thing different this year over the past two is that she actually made "The Gallery", not once, but 2X! LOL! So Prada, Louie, Coach and Jimmy you are gonna have to wait for me to visit the Big Apple another way, another time! Hugs and Kisses, Regis & Kelly, but Blechhh on your pickers, my Kaybrie is the Fairest of them All and her MOMA isn't blind!!!
P.S. Beauty only gets prettier every year, and she has one more year to qualify, see ya next year! Wonder if all the Mom's are as bad as I am? LOL!

Kaybrie Jayne- This is the picture we submitted!

This is a picture of her in "The Gallery"
