Our Visitors...

We had my dad and Becky come and visit last month. Becky brought baby Caymbree with her and we all loved to play, snuggle and hold her.

My dad-he is one of our favorite guests to have around.

My sister Becky- yes she is going to KILL me for putting up this picture. She was in the middle of telling me "NO, don't take my picture." But that's too bad because i didn't get very many pics of her this trip.

So then we took this one. This was the morning her and Caymbree where leaving...sad day!

Can you tell this picture was forced?

Don't i looked good with a girl on my lap...maybe one day!

These 2 boys LOVE Miss. Caymbree Wynn,
They knew how to make her laugh when she was sad and they were very good little helpers for their Aunt Becky!

I love this Brody kid, he makes me laugh everyday.

The boys loved playing with Caymbree's toys.

Grandpa and the grand kids.

Me with the babe.

My dad and Brett went to the Colts vs. Cardinals game. And of course Colts won...go Peyton Manning.

Thanks dad for always spoiling us...your the best!

private, pet shop and party.

If you want to get a lot of comments and emails just go private! If your wondering why i went private it's for the obvious reasons. I decided i didn't like strangers knowing everything about me and my family and looking at pictures of my kids. I'm just trying to keep them safe.
So now that we cleared the air let's get to some new pictures.

Peyton's pre-school had a field trip to the pet store, it was so fun! Peyton and Brody were talking about it for days before we went and they had convinced themselves that they were getting a puppy or a kitty, they didn't care which one they just wanted one. So being the mom that..(cough cough) gives into her kids way too often, i felt so bad telling them that there was no way in my lifetime that they would be getting a cat or a dog.
This is kinda how the conversation went:

P&B: "mom are we getting a puppy or a kitty at the pet shop today" (yes they call it a pet shop)
M: "Sorry guys we aren't getting either, mommy doesn't like pets in her house"
Brody: "do you still hate puppies mom?" (this isn' the first time they have asked me this)
M: "Well i don't hate puppies, i just don't like them"
P: "well maybe we can get a fish or a frog, which one mom?"
M: "ummmm.... neither those are still pets!"

So yes i'm that cruel mom that HATES puppies, but no worries i like them if their at other peoples houses.
Here they are checking out he fishies....maybe i could do a fish???

These boys thought the gerbals and hamsters were cool.
Like really aren't these just mice with different names? I would NEVER get one. We had some growing up and i remember i tried holding it one time but i got too scared and dropped the little thing and broke his hip. I never been that into animals.

Watching the dogs get groomed.

Now onto the third "P", Cassie's party.
A few weeks ago i decided to fly home (Canada) for the weekend to surprise my sister. She was having a little birthday party for her 3 year old that weekend, and it was my dads birthday too so we went out and celebrated. I had NO KIDS with me so i got to do everything i wanted. I went for my morning runs, ate out at all my favorite restaurants, bought $60 worth of Canadian candy (which i've made a pretty good dent in) and of course go to my favorite store (superstore). It was a quick but super fun weekend.

Becky and Cassie

Cassie and i had a sleepover one night, she came and stayed at my moms house with me. She is so good i don't think she stayed up past 7:30pm.
Thanks everyone for the fun filled weekend.
