Move over Chocolate Bunny!

This is the first time I have ever seen this.
I must say that I LOVE it!
With all the commercialism of the holiday this really does make a statement.
However, eating a chocolate bunny does seem a bit more appealing than eating the cross.

But in all seriousness, it is kinda cool to see.....what a statement in the chocolate world in my eyes!

Highly Recommend!

I highly recommend this movie. I might be doing it backwards but I am going to now read the book.

Like Dandelion Dust.

Have you ever felt out of sorts?
Just plain out of whack?
Not all there?
Like part of you is fading?
As if you are weighted down?
Treading....treading water?
wading...wading in quick sand?
Seeing your reflection and wonder who is this?
Driving and wondering if you should just keep going?
Stopping and not able to take a breath?
Heart racing and you haven't even moved out of bed yet?
Running and running and moving no where?
In a daze?
Rut of all ruts?
listening to people talk to you but you cant concentrate on what they are saying only that they are talking way too much?
Asking yourself why must I?
Telling yourself it'll get better tomorrow?
Laughing inside but it won't come out...because there really is no reason to laugh.
Like you just can't take another "today"?
Wondered if their "life" is anything like yours or lack there of?
As if you've been led to the water but can't drink it?
Have you ever felt out of sorts? I mean really out of sorts where you are just disconnected or disconnecting?

That's how I feel. Disconnected.

I know. I know. Nothing is as bad as it could be.

However right now my "bad" just seems to have me all out of whack. a rut of ruts.

Truly, if I was a power cord....I might just have a surge.

This is my disconnect.....Maybe I'll be reset tomorrow.

Campbell Cares

Campbell was a premature baby but I know several other mommies that have had very very premature babies. Some with not so happy endings. So I decided that Campbell and I would always walk in the March of Dimes walk. This year we will walk in April. Travis might even come too.

Yes, I know they don't do any of the walking at this age but I want them to learn to be involved in the community and to give back.

So if you'd like to join my team or contribute to my goal please know that I welcome any new team members and all donations sizes.

Thank you from our family.

So the tonsils and adenoids removal for Campbell will be postponed from this Thursday to summer break. Kinda of sighing with relief over here for so many reasons.

1. she wont have the surgery....wasn't really ready for the "going under" and all the stress that goes with that.
2. The bank account was not quite ready for the hit was going to take.
3. She was much happier not to miss two days of school prior to spring break. (She had a MAJOR melt down when she found out she was going to miss two days of school....who's kid is she??? j/k!)

What am I sad about...
1. This means Nana isn't coming today!!!

BUT instead....she'll come in about a week and a half. So that's still cool.

my little

My little guy like cars. No he loves cars. I think the only, scratch that. the ONLY thing he likes better than cars would be trains. Yes he does love trains.

So there was a car show in town...just down the street. It was suppose to happen on Saturday and the whole family was set to go. However, the weather put a damper on the show. The show was postponed til Sunday. Which meant that daddy would have to miss it because his business trip came first.

So after Sunday School we headed home, picked up some kolaches and rolled in to say goodbye to daddy. Than the kids and I headed out to the car show.

This car show was cool. Live bands, pony rides (our kids first), rock walls, jumpy houses, etc. They called it a spring fling and car show. The best part was it was all free minus the eats if you wanted to eat.

There were SO many cars. Knowing that we would not be able two walk the aisle and aisle of cars we cruised two aisles. The kids loved it but one little little boy LOVED it. I really think his love of cars grew that day.

I kept telling him that Papa would LOVE the show too. So mental note to self is to find out when this really cool show is booked for next spring and get my dad here NO MATTER WHAT!! Did you hear that Papa...NO MATTER WHAT!!! Next year Travis will be able to walk more aisles and you'll love holding his hand and seeing the smiles and excitement on his face.

What a beautiful day. Sissy was a great sport and seemed to know that this was really special for brother bear. The only thing that was missing was daddy. What would have made it perfect would have been if Papa and Nana would have been in town.

My City Slickers in a Rodeo World.

So it's Rodeo time! While we have yet to make it to the real rodeo downtown, we still get to have some rodeo fun at preschool. However, pretty sure my two looked like city slickers in the crowd of hats, boots, Bandana's, etc. But I loved the little cowboy and cowgirl shirts I got them.

My friend Kim makes them and if you are on facebook you can order just about
anything from her. You can find her here.

Campbell's class had more rodeo activities than the younger peeps ie, her brother.
It was fun to watch her play in the activity centers and see the fun of the day.

The chuck wagon was a hit...especially the drinky drink.

This year we will make it down to the rodeo. We have decided that we are old enough to handle some of the activities. I am so excited to go to the petting zoo and the midway...probably more than my kids at this point...glad we decided that "we're old enough."

So where ever you are...enjoy your rodeo!
