Aww mom why did you do that?!!

Well things didn't go according to my plans regarding the fruit Roll Ups. I thought that they be delivered in a plain brown or white package and my kids would be clueless as to what was in the box. I was wrong. The brightly decorated box clearly let them know what was inside. so after begging and begging for one I relented and let them each have one.

" why did you do that?!!" were the first words out of Madeline's mouth. "ugh you are in your dico clothes". While Lilly on the other hand just giggled at what she seen, and happily ate it up.

Long, long day.

I am so glad it is over and everyone is asleep.

The girls went to the dentist today. Mads have 2 teeth pulled we have to go back on Friday to start the retainer work.

Lilly didn't fare so well she needed an extraction too only tooth crumbled and the dentist couldn't get all the pieces out since there was hardly anything to grasp onto. And because it was the upper tooth he said that there was really nothing above the area but bone so even though she was numbed she could still feeling some of the digging. So that means now we have to take her to an oral surgeon so she can be sedated. So now we need to scrounge up money for this.

The girls were so wiped out after their appointments that they actually took naps, their appointment started at 3:00 pm so that meant they stayed up later. Ed & I didn't have the heart to keep them awake after what they went through.

One of the joys of being a parent

is the kicks we can get out of embarassing the kids. I was the lucky winner of a box of personalized Fruit Roll Ups from Jody's blog Make a Joyful Noise...Even if it hurts Momma's ears! during this last round of the Bloggy Carnival giveaways and I decided to make these for my girls. Won't they get a happy surprise when they open their lunch boxes at school and see a Fruit Roll Up inside. I'd love to be a fly on the wall when they open that Fruit Roll Up and see this...

Yes that is us from the night of the World's Largest Disco in our disco duds. The horror of horrors to our fashion concious second grader. This is going to be sweet.

What time is it?

Its costume time, I'm so excited.
What time is it? Its song leaning time. I want to shout it out.

Yes today I got a treat at the girls dance class this evening.

We learned what songs the girls will be dancing to and got to see their costumes for the recital. I have to wait until Wednesday to learn Madeline's ballet info. Argg that wait is going to be a painful one.

I have only managed to find Madeline's tap and jazz costumes on line so far. Still searchng for Lilly's costume. There are way too many Tinkerbell costumes out there.

So yes Lillian's class will be wearing a Tinkerbell costume and will be dancing to: Fly To Your Heart by Selena Gomez

Madeline's tap number is What Time Is It? from High School Musical 2.
Her jazz number is The Best Of Both Worlds by Hannah Montana.

I'll post the pictures and ballet info Wednesday night. And there is a bonus here, she could actually wear the yap costume again. It is so cute and if I seen this at Target I'd most likely pick it up for her. She might even get away with wearing the jazz one again minus the jacket.

Please help support St Jude Hospital!

Please click the Donate button above and to the right on the top of my page here. To help save the lives of children battling cancer and other catastrophic diseases at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. St. Jude also provides travel, food and housing for the patient and a family member. None of this would be possible if not for the generosity of caring friends like you.

Thank you!

Thank you Salma Hayek, Kathie Lee, Hoda

and the rest of the Today Show crew!

While watching the Today Show with Kathie Lee & Hoda this mornning the lovely Salma Hayek was on discussing the need for vaccinations in the poorer countires and how Pampers will donate one vaccine per pack of diapers that is purchased. Fantastic reason as to why to buy Pampers. They have always been my favorite brand as it is. Anyways they went on to announce that they were giving away 5 Pampers Prize Packages on their facebook page to the first 5 people who post the following 1 pack = 1 vaccine (see blow for actual facebook posting)

The lovely Salma Hayek wants to give away *5* of these packs (diapers, wipes, and onesies) to the 1st *5* people to post the following:

1 pack = 1 vaccine

Well I was the VERY FIRST person to respond so I am one of the winners. This will help out my sister so very much. I am so excited. I actually started screaming when Sara messaged me on facebook.

What a great start to the day!

What a feeling.

Wow is all that I can say! Like I posted earlier I signed up with Curves. I am happy to report that I have lost 4 pounds so far and have really noticed a boost to my energy level. I have started to eat breakfast everyday. No more one meal a day for me any more. I think the eating more each day has been the hardest part of it all. I am just not used to eating more than one meal a day. I know that is the worst thing you can do but I am just not hungry. I really, really am loving Curves, and I am not one who likes to work out. I finally found a workout program that I am happy with, one that I know I can keep up with, one I actually like doing. I am happy.
