P and B have been good.  We did meet up with Aunt Lisa and the boys (Dylan, Nolan, Kegan and Rogan) in Bloomington and spent the after noon at Chuck E. Cheese and then to the Children's Museum.  We had a blast.  I think C.E.C was more exhausting then the museum. 

They boys are doing great in school.  Payton loves library day and being able to borrow books for a week.  Braxton loves going to school and seeing his friends.  No worries Mommy and CoCo are his best friends. 

Well that is all for now.  We are getting ready for Braxton's birthday which is only a few weeks away.  We will type more later.

If you have breakfast for lunch do you have lunch for breakfast?

Every night we tell Payton what he is having for lunch at school the next day.  Yesterday we told him that he was going to have biscuits, gravy, hashbrowns and peaches.  He was so excited and then asked "mom does that mean I have chicken nuggets for breakfast?"  It was so cute. 

Today I got home from work and the first thing he said was "I ate all of my lunch today".  A hot lunch in his belly is all that matters.

A New Year....

Happy New Year to all of you...Welcome to 2011.  As one of the things that I want to accomplish is to blog at least every other day.  I am going to strive hard to do this.  I want to be able to keep track of the boys and what they are up to now.  So here is an update from Thanksgiving to now.

  • Had to get stitches above his left eye because he fell out of bed.  He did not wake Jeff or I up and he had to go to a surgeon to get it closed.  6 stitches later and he was all better.  He has a very high tolerance for pain.
  • Is spelling his colors and loves to sing songs. 
  • Loves the snow
  • Loves to tell stories.  It is hard for me to get in a word when he starts talking
  • Uses curse words and had soap in his mouth for the first time because of this
We took a family vacation to Florida to see our extended family down there between Christmas and New Years.  We drove the 15 hours and the boys were great.  We had a whole week to do what we wanted when we wanted to.  P and B got their first Disney experience and they had a blast.  We were blessed to get free tickets.  It was a very fun but long day.  We will have to do it again.

So once a week I hope to give you updates on the boys and what they are into now.  We are gearing up for Braxton's 4th birthday...yes I can't believe he is going to be 4.  He is so excited.  Please stay tune there will be more blogging to come.  This is one of my New Year resolutions...

Where did it all begin.....

This is a blog about the lives of a non-traditional midwestern family. I am a full time working mother of two beautiful boys and a wife to a stay at home husband. We were married on June 15, 2002 and were blessed with two boys, Payton (4-19-05) and Braxton (2-08-07).
