Over the river and through the woods...

To Grandma's (and Grandpa's) house we go...

We leave tomorrow for 4 days in MT for Easter weekend. Not too excited about the car trip, but I am excited to see my family. We are opting to try something new and stay with my sister her husband and their 3 kids in there house...now that they have room we thought it would be a fun change.

So praying for safety, no snow and no ice and YES Aaron is driving ;)

Lost and Sleep Deprivation

So thanks alot Andrew Garcia (he told Aaron it was a must see) because now I am sleep deprived and now of course sick.... All because of a show called "LOST"

So yes we are behind the times, 5 seasons or is it 6? So we must rent the past to catch up to the present... I did get plenty of sleep when Aaron was gone...because I couldn't watch the episodes without him, but now alas we are back to the madness.

So today I woke up with a sore throat...still went to the gym and now I am totally exhausted!

So pj's and a messy house will be on the menu for today.

What Fun Looks Like at a Scentsy Ladies House...

So yesterday we got the shipment of all the new Spring Scentsy plus more for my big open house next week.

I don't know who was more excited me or the kids...they ran and opened the door for the UPS man and then pushed the boxes into the living room!

Even Klayton helped un-load all those Scentsy bars!

Kale was the supervisor this time making sure Soleil was working hard!
(and showing you his cars which he always has one in hand!)

Soleil had the idea that they could use all that packing paper for coloring on and ta-da! Free entertainment while I labeled everything!

Here it all is before we put it away on the shelves of the "Scentsy Closet"

So it smells good at our house ...and it's nice to have the shelves stocked again!

Dinner Out and Family Fun Friday Night!

So this week was very exhausting for me as it was a BUSY couponing week! So be the end of the week having saved a little over $300 (spending $47) on wednesday night, I also shopped Monday and Tuesday saving over $800 (spending $124) combined those days.

Here is what I got for $47!

30 boxes fruit snacks (30 cents a box)
8 tubes tooth paste
8 tooth brushes
6 Cascade Dishwasher Detergent
12 rolls bounty paper towels
2 dawn dish soap
10 cans refrided beans
15 cans hunts diced tomatoes
1 pkg pampers diapers
1 large pkg. Huggies wipes
2 boxes sandwich bags
4 pkgs. zip-loc "tupperware"
4 shampoo and 4 conditioner Pantene Pro-V

I was just plain wiped out! So last night I asked Aaron what he wanted for dinner...knowing full well we had plenty of food options at home...he opted to take us out to dinner and I wasn't sad in the least bit! We ate at Tuscono's Brazillian Grill. (www.tucanos.com)

It's quite the fast-paced dining experience. You pay a set price per adult (kids are free) and there is a full buffet of wonderful side dishes, salads and appetizers as well as soups. Then their are a bunch of guys who bring meat of all kinds to your table and also grilled pineapple and Parmesan veggies! It is sooooo delicious and you can keep going until you are stuffed!

We especially got a kick out of Kale. Whenever a "meat man" would come to the table Kale would stand on his chair and hold out his plate... he wanted some of EVERYTHING...and would eat it and declare "YUM" very loudly. He even tried the grilled chicken hearts (YUCK) and declared them "YUM" as well. Soleil and I were smart and didn't even try them, but Aaron did and said they were gross. It was hilarious to see Kale chomping down on them.

We then headed to Re-Discovered book store. Our favorite book store to visit. I found a used book I had been looking for and we were pleasantly surprised to find it was "meet the author" night! Roland Smith author of books such as "I.Q" and "Tentacles" ...basically young adult adventure series. Aaron was the oldest one in the line for autographs. =)

Then it was home for bed for the kids and reading time for mom and dad.

Do you ever just wish...

That your house would stay clean, your laundry done, your cupboards full, your bank account full, people would keep their word, decisions weren't so hard to make, you wouldn't quarrel with your spouse and that life were just well easier I guess.

But then I guess it wouldn't be life and it wouldn't make us look forward to heaven so much... Heaven... no more of any of the above..just end-less days of son-shine and basking in our Saviour's presence. *sigh*

Now it's back to the housework at hand...
