Shriner Circus Pictures!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the Shriner's Circus!! Braydon loved the elephants!

Here was a lion who was actually acting like a big kitten.

Nolan's favorite was the tigers! GRrrrrrrr!

Poppy joined us too and treated the boys to a pony ride. They enjoyed it!

Mouths full of cotton candy.....their new favorite type of treat!

Which Heroine Are You?

I am Marianne Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

You are Marianne Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are impulsive, romantic, impatient, and perhaps a bit too brutally honest. You enjoy romantic poetry and novels, and play the pianoforte beautifully. To boot, your singing voice is captivating. You feel deeply, and love passionately

Circus Time Again

We are going to the Shriner's Circus tomorrow night with the boys. (I am sorry if I offend anyone who is against going to the circus) I support the Shriners and what they do for the childrens hospitals across the country.

We love to see all the clowns, elephants, tigers, acrobats, and other acts the circus has to offer. We can't wait!

The consignment sale is going great. I bought 20 pieces of clothing for $58.00 yesterday and plan to go on Sunday when it is 50% off. I have sold a little over $30.00 as of last night and today is the first day open to the public.

Consignment Time!!!

Well, it is that time again to get rid of the older outgrown clothes and toys...and bargin shop for new ones with Upstate Kids . I LOVE this sale because I make enough to turn around and buy a wardrobe fit for a king for Nolan & Braydon.

I have nearly 50 items I am selling...mostly boys size 18-24 month clothing. I strongly suggest if your local to Anderson, SC to visit their website and look for times when you can shop. I think it is open to the public this Friday @ 10:00am.

I am excited!!

Pizza making at grandma's house

We made homemade pizza a couple of weeks ago at Grandma & Poppy Hann's house. It was scrumptous. The boys enjoyed making their pizza with their favorite toppings pepperoni, mushrooms, and black olives.

Even John got in the spirit. He was tossing that dough in the air too. LOL Didn't get a final picture of the pizzas because we ate them so fast. YUM!

We are going to see Beauty and the Beast this Sunday at our local theatre. Grandma and Poppy Hann bought the boys their tickets. Should be fun!

Toadly Fun

We took the boys to a "bouncy" toy indoor park today called Toadly Fun. It was cold and rainy out this past weekend. They had so much energy bottled up...this was our solution!

We let them run around for an hour going from bouncy to bouncy. They ran around non-stop! It amazes me all the energy they have. I want some!

Braydon is now tall enough to climb even in the big ones. I almost had a heart attack as he climbed this with his brother. It was like 10 feet up.

Here they are ready to slide down the 12 ft. slide. It was funny when they made it to the bottom...their hair stood up with all the static. I tried to get a picture, but they were off running to the next one.

Everyone is tuckered out and taking naps including Daddy! I think I am going to surprise them with a party tonight. I think I will make a few favorite finger foods before they get up and pop some popcorn later while we watch a movie. (the boys love popcorn) I think I will wash some strawberries too! Yummy...want to join?

We had over 5 inches...

This was taken about 6:00 last night. It was still light out but we had thundersnow happening. Yes....we actually had thunderstorms with snow!!

This was about 8:45am this morning. The boys had a fun tracking through the snow. This was Braydon's and Nolan's first real snowfall other than a dusting to an inch.

The snow came down really wet and then it kinda became icy and crunchy. We actually have a little snow left, and a bit of slush. The news station claims that with our low of 19 expected tonight will refreeze everything ans cause black ice.

The boys' friend was out and they helped a little with the snowman....and then a snowball fight broke out. LOL

OMG! I think we will finally get our first snow fall later today and into tonight. I am like a kid and so excited!! My battery is charged in my camera so I can catch some fun moments with my boys. We may get 2-4 inches which is a ton for us! LOL

This is heading up to my in-laws house, but they are expected to get near a foot I think. I know they won't be happy about that...they always get snow in Rhode Island.


These pictures were taken about 30 min. after it started snowing at around 3:30pm. Now the ground is covered.
