Day 120 JUMP!

This is how my boys spent the entire weekend!  You would think all the bouncing on the trampoline would wear them out...nope not a chance!  

Bill got a little worn out when I made him put the swing set together for Ty right before he had to leave to do a night shift though.

  The kids were appreciative though!

Day 119 It just won't go away

This darn cold will not go away.  It was been over a week and my life still revolves around three things.  My box of Pufs ( because a nose in need deserves puffs indeed!), my sinus meds, and my sinus rinse bottle.  

Yup exciting life I lead.  All the energy I could muster up went into taking a picture of a box of Kleenex.  Okay sob story over now.

Day 118 Hooch

Please excuse the next 7 posts. Life has gotten very busy this week and I have taken my picture everyday but haven't posted. Now I'm looking through the pictures trying to remember what happened that day and can't :( So All you get is the picture.

Not sure why I took this one....maybe because Hooch was looking so regal sitting there looking up. Well I think he was actually eyeing up a bird that he wanted to chase....if only he wasn't tied up!

Day 117 Mommy the glow stick thief

I admit it, I'm a thief.  The Eater Bunny brought the boys each a package of glow stick bracelets for Easter.  I think he had ulterior motives.  He just knew they would make cool pictures :)

And when I was all done playing....here is my bathroom sink!  

Good thing it washes off :)

Day 116 Sleepy boy

Do NOT let these pictures fool you.  He may look all cute and innocent but its all a bit cover-up.  He is only innocent when sleeping.  The rest of the time he runs around getting into stuff he shouldn't and destroying my house.  Terrible two's ended and the troublesome three's began.

Day 115 Do it yourself

Whats a  boy to do when the snow melts and he wants his trampoline set up?  Do it himself and hope that daddy will take pity on him and go help!

By the time they finished we had a line up of kids around the block waiting to jump on it!

Day 114 Easter

I wanted to take pictures of the kids hunting for eggs.  As usual I got so busy helping them and stopping the big boys from taking everything before Ty could find some I forgot about my camera. 

I did get a picture of Xander with his new soccer ball he got though.  Not very festive but better than nothing :)

Day 113 Little cone head

Harley saw the vet today. The vet thinks he may still have a little bit of sight left in his eye and we are going to try to save it.    Hopefully all the meds he is on will work and the eye can stay even if he can't see out of it.  

He looks almost dead in this picture but he's just sleeping.  He still sleeps with the eye open since its swollen still.  The cone has to stay on for awhile to protect his eye and he is adjusting well.   How well I will adjust to having to wake up twice a night to give him drops in his eye I don't know.  It's like having a newborn again, if only this one would wear diapers instead of going on my floor!

Day 112 Easter Eggs

The kids set to work decorating Easter eggs today....I can almost guarantee that by tomorrow they will be gone.  The thing about my children and Easter Eggs....they LOVE to eat hard boiled eggs so they never last very long.  I can still remember when I was a kid never wanting to actually eat the eggs I decorated and they would sit there looking pretty till my mom finally made me throw them out because they were rotten.   At least they are filling up on actual eggs and not chocolate :)

Day 111 Poor puppy

When I got my Boston terrier puppy last week I knew they were prone to having things go wrong with their eyes since they protrude so much.   I had heard stories about  bostons, pugs and other similar dogs having their eyes scratched etc.  I NEVER thought it would happen to me.  Then it did.

We are house sitting my in laws dog for the week while they are away and we brought Max over.  The pup and Max have seen each other before without incident.   This time there was an incident. 

Max ( the inlaws dog) and Hooch ( my boxer) started play fighting as soon as we brought Max in the house,  within 2 minutes Harley must have got in between them and he came out yipping with blood running out of his eye.  We think he must have got in between the big dogs and got a tooth or paw in the eye. 

After many phone calls we got a hold of our vet who happened to have his cell phone on him while he was out having a 'vets night out' with some colleagues.   We then got instructions to ice it ( not easy with a puppy) pour sugar on it ( it brings down swelling) and put antibiotic ointment in it ( we happened to have some from an incident with hubby's eye)and keep it from drying out since he can't shut it.

As I write this a few days later he is at the vet's right now.  Chances are he will have to have the eye removed since there is an obvious puncture in it.

After one week with a healthy puppy I will now have a one eyed pup.   Everything I have read says he will adapt and be fine with just one eye but it makes me sad it happened to him so early in his little life. 

He is still acting like the little goof ball he is, chewing everything, getting into mischief and peeing on my floor!  But my heart just breaks for the poor little guy.

Day 110

All I can say is OOPS!  Forgot to take a picture today...life got busy.

Day 109 Plasma cars

A package showed up at my door today, it was my 2 older boys birthday presents.  There birthdays are not for another month but Grandma wanted to make sure they got here on time.  I guess she didn't realize the package was getting shipped overnight delivery! 

So when the boys got home from school today there was a surprise of 2 blue plasma cars awaiting them. I had never really seen a plasma car before last year but my husband says he used to play on them at school when he was a kid so I guess they have been around awhile.    He must have really enjoyed them as a kid because the next thing I knew my kitchen table had been shoved to the side and him and Xander were racing around the kitchen on them!

They kids have been having a blast with them so far.

And Xander even recorded a video for his grandparents to demonstrate how they work and say thank you :)

Day 108 The many faces of Dylan

Dylan decided I could take his picture tonight.

That does not necessarily mean he will cooperate and smile nice...just means that I am allowed to stand their with my camera.

I had to capture all the cute little freckles he is getting all over his face since he has been playing outside more lately.

I love taking his picture...I always get the oddest faces that he only ever makes when I point a camera at him.  

I think the look basically says 'Mommy why do you make me do this?"

Day 107 I should be washing dishes

I should be washing dishes but the tap dripping was calling my name.  So I stacked the dishes to the side and played a little first :)

Day 106 No eggs?

I wanted to make cookies today but I realized I was out of eggs.   Do you know that almost ALL cookie recipes have eggs? I had to do a major Google search to find an eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe that used regular old ingredients.

I did find one though :)  Chef Jeena makes an unusual cookie that has no eggs. I had to double the recipe since it only makes 16 cookies......that won't last long with my three little cookie monsters.  They turned out okay.  Not something I would recommend if you don't have to, but if you have an egg allergy or happen to run out like I did they are good.

Day 105 April showers?

Hello Weekend.  Nice of you to get here but do you think maybe you could come back another day with a little less snow?

What ever happened to April showers....I don't think the saying goes April SNOW brings May flowers.

Day 103 (not 52) Dead battery

Today I went over to my friend Carrie's and got to play with my sweet little baby X.  He had a bit of cold but that doesn't stop the big smiles!

Unfortunately just as I pull out my camera my battery died.  Really need to remember to charge that once in awhile :(

Day 102 Sleepy baby's

I'm not sure who is more tired, the man or the dog.

Day 101 Key lime

It was baking day....today's task,  key lime cupcakes with lime cream cheese frosting.

All I can say is YUMMY!   

Kind of a pain in the butt to try to get zest from those tiny little key limes but it was worth it :)

Of course I had to dye them that green but the kids thought green cupcakes were so cool!

The recipe can be found HERE if you are looking for a yummy key lime cupcake recipe.

Day 100!!!

100 days!   WOOHOO!!!   If I can make it past 160 I will beat last years attempt.  LOL

Xander was studying natural disasters in school and came home last week with a scrap peice of paper with a "list" for me.

Vangar and bacing soda

He wanted to make a volcano.

So this weekend we gathered up all the stuff including red food coloring to make the lava.

No paper mache volcano's here...just a cup.  I'm lazy,  and he wanted to do it with a cup.

The whole thing lasted about 10 minutes but the boys had fun :)

Day 98 Bath time again....

Another bath picture...except this time it was my van getting the wash.  I was tempted to roll down the window for a better picture but hubby didn't think that was a good idea!  LOL
