Well, I was on a one day blog-hiatus to get my boys party organized. May I just say that T.C. from the Twins is quite possibly more than human! This bear dealt with 20 fanatic children, played baseball like a pro in a bear suit on a 90 degree Minnesota day....Worth every penny and then some.
We had an awesome day! It was really the most memorable birthday party that we have had for the boys and I am glad because they were both old enough to understand it (and hopefully remember it)!
Thanks to all the family and friends who attended, brought or shipped gifts! The boys were truly spoiled =)

Ever have one of those days where nothing seems to go right?
Mine have been yesterday and today. You name it, it went wrong.
This is a wonderful little rub off that I have on my laundry room wall...(of course, I added the NOT for picture purposes)!
My washer was on the fritz as of last night, along with our TV remote and 2 shelves that fell totally out of the wall. I spent the better part of today on the phone with various help lines...Are you kidding me...they are basically a waste.
Finally I reached an intellectual person named David (Thank the Lord for him)..Here is a neat tidbit, most new front loading washers do not have belts in them. Instead they have a hard drive that needs to be reset.....who would have known!!!
Now I only have about 8 loads of laundry to catch up on...UGHH!
So, needless to say everything ended up fine. Except for my sanity...that went out the window along with the remote!

Happy Birthday to Jaxon! He has reached the "7" milestone that he has been waiting for!! I myself find these days to be bitter sweet because although I am proud of the character he has, student that he is and athlete he desires to be, I also remember the baby that he was and how many times I wished that he did not need me...the sad fact is that every day he becomes more independent and less of a baby or small boy. The age old adage "the days are long but the years are short" really does resound with me today. Nevertheless, we had a great day doing tons of things that Jaxon wanted to do:
1. School - He had a field trip to Papa John's Pizza and he made his favorite pizza (sausage & pepperoni) don't ask...
2. Pool - We grabbed the pizza and headed to the pool with our neighbors and friends for some afternoon fun.
3. Home - For a little downtime before his 6:30 playoff baseball game!
4. Baseball Game - Which they won!! Means that they play at 10:00am and 3:00pm (right in between birthday party) YIKES!
That is enough chatting for now! You must be exhausted!!!

We are on countdown at our house! Jaxon's birthday is tomorrow and it is a day planned with whatever he wants to do...not sure what we have in store but I know that there will be baseball, pool and school in the mix!
My technology tidbit for today is a great little site called www.rockyou.com ! Check out the slide show that I made and make one yourself! They are fun and free....the 2 best F's if you ask me!!
Short and sweet...until tomorrow, enjoy!

I am back from Vegas and I need to be more grateful for all that my husband has done while I have been gone.
Does anyone else have this problem where you seem to only point out the negative things sometimes? How do you break away from it. It is really hard for me to just be nice sometimes. My sarcasm comes in and just ruins the day.
While it is apparent that Dads do things differently, it is NOT wrong and I have to keep telling myself that men and women take care of children differently.
I am open to feedback and comments on this one because I could really use some new tips to help me keep it at the forefront of my mind....
PS...Thanks to MiMi for allowing me to steal a magazine cover for free just like she did.....
Erik deserves to be on the cover of this mag after 4 days with the boys!!! =)

Today is kind of a gross day outside. Really humid and getting ready for a storm...we all know how that is! Anyhow, in an effort to still do something fun with the kids, I found these suckers that they got at our little friends birthday party so....we pulled them out and did a little photo shoot. I got a couple good ones...what else can I ask for...they are boys, they do NOT sit pretty and by no means do they ever stay clean!!! Ahh....An OCD's moms worst nightmare!

Jaxon wanted to sell items at the Fireworks and we have been teaching him about money. He started out really slow, once he made his 1st sale (thanks to his brother yelling for him) he was on a role!!! Way to go Jaxon...our tiny Biznazz man!
Mason waiting patiently for the fireworks to begin...Too bad there were crazy people and we could hardly see anyways!
My copy cat photo for the 4th of July...Thanks MiMi for the idea!

OK, so most of you that check out my blog have been expressing some concerns that I was stolen or hijacked since I have not been bloggin much in the past couple of weeks. I am finally taking some much needed bloggin time and downloading all of my pictures...please say a prayer for my computer because it is smoking and on overload from all the pictures =).
This picture was at our Anniversary dinner at a Restaurant called Porcao. It is a Brazilian steak house where you literally have to hand them a STOP card to get them to quit bringing you food....=) Quite possibly my favorite place on earth! A gorgeous view of the water, and my hubby of 10 years!
We took a really great cruise called the "Thriller" it took us around all of Miami in a boat and we stopped at some sights that most people would not normally get to see like...P Diddy, Puff Daddy, Sean Combs...ahh whatever he is called these days! Pretty nice pad......I guess =)
This was a really interesting story....Erik and I watch CSI Miami but we did not seriously think they existed like this...well they do! We were in South Beach and 8 cops pull up to this hotel along with an ambulance and a fire truck....we had no idea what happened till the next morning but it turns out that some model jumped out of her 9th floor hotel room as a suicide. Absolutely horrible however, I took a moment to photograph the CSI unit...am I a tourist or what?
This is a long blog so I will stop for this evening, just check back, I could do this trip for days on end!
