With 20 other cousins Kailey's digging paid off, when she found the lucky Egg! Winning $12
Even though they had stayed up late giggling over the anticipation of the Easter bunny, they still managed to get up at 4 am. With a constant sugar rush all day they still had plenty of energy.
Baby's first Easter was the best ever. His joy was overwhelming! I don't know if it was all the excitement or the fact he managed to choke down some chocolate and foil first thing that morning, but he refused to nap. Little man made it as along as he could but missed the egg hunt. I don't know which was louder his snoring or all the other kids laughter.

6.Stuffed animals are great for the little ones. Wait till closer to Easter and they mark them down considerably. Most store buy more stuffed bunnies than anything. The stores don't want stuck with them so usually they go on sale first.

Finally the long awaited dreaded day has come, St. Patrick's Day. The girls have had the calender marked with a big warning sign 'Beware of this Day' since March 1st!! Every week they have watched the days count down until the Leprechaun comes. You see last year he came to our house while they were gone at school. He messed up their room, and left glitter everywhere. They found the blinds in their room all a mess with candy left at there window. He even peed green pee in their toilet which left the two of them running and screaming for their life. The worst part is this was the same day our baby St. Bernard 'Saddie' (the crazy dog with the severe case of separation anxiety), ate a hole in the sheet rock of our kitchen while I was gone. The girls were terrified and there was no convincing them that the dog did it. They would not leave my side that entire evening and getting them to go to bed that night was a huge issue. This morning they were excited to dress all in green today and couldn't wait to go pinch everyone. Although, they were very much dreading what they may come home to. This afternoon they came home to a room filled of mischief from a Leprechaun named Olis. We know this because he spelled his name out in green blocks that he left in their window, and signed his thumb print next to the warning on their calender. He dressed their stuffed animals all in green, left a green hand print on their mirror, dyed the soda green (where he must have taken a sip), and he even washed his hands and left a wash cloth in the bathroom. That sneaky little man not only visited our home, but went to their Webkinz home on the computer. Where he painted their room green and put green clothes on all their animals. I don't know if it's just that they are older or the fact that nothing terrified them as they came in the door, but I haven't heard any screaming or crying only giggling.
Happy St. Patty's Day~

Tonight both of the girls are off to sleep overs, leaving the house in unsettling silence. Kailey went to a friend’s house for a party and sleep over after school. I know she is in good hands but still my stomach is in knots with her gone. Madisen decided to go to my mom’s since Kailey is away. Kailey has yet to call home so I assume she is having a blast. She was already in sleepover mode when I left her this afternoon, and she ignored me talking to her friends. Madisen on the other hand has called three times in the last hour. She has yet to mention the big incident at school, which she told my mom about nonstop the entire way home from school. Apparently when she was in the bathroom today at school, and some older girl started her period for the first time. The whole incident was taking place when Madisen walked in the bathroom. She told my mom some girl was in the bathroom with blood all over her panties and …down there too! The girl was screaming and crying to other girls in the bathroom that she was dying. Madisen said she really thought she was dying, so she immediately started praying for her. As the other girls ran and got the teacher, Madisen panicked and made her way back to class. (I would imagine everyone there probably heard all about it. No doubt my little drama queen freaked out the entire class. So much for that girl’s privacy, huh) Well, she continued to tell my mom, she thinks the girl doesn’t eat enough and that’s why it happened. Which leaves me curious to know what else was said in class. My mom said she wasn’t going to touch the conversation with a ten foot pole, and refused to even comment on the story. I guess when she comes home I will have some explaining to do on her level about the situation. Until then I will at least know she will be eating well and she won’t forget her bedtime prayers.

2. Kayla tripped her and made her fall.
3. Blood was gushing EVERYWHERE.
4. Ms. Hept came running and carried her inside.
5. Everyone thought she was dying! (including her)
6. The teachers poured alcohol (peroxide) on it and boiled her knee.
7. They put lots of band aids on it.
8. She was still crying so they brought her candy.
9. She raced the teacher back down the stairs (the teacher informed me)
10. Back in the classroom she got lots of hugs and attention from the teacher.
11. Her friend Brianna told her it wasn't fair she was getting all the attention.
12. With a pouty lip, she limped to the car very slowly to come home.
13. She has propped her bum leg up on pillows and is now resting watching cartoons.

Ever since Madisen was a toddler she has loved clothes. Before kindergarten she would sneak clothes into a back pack where ever she went. She was always changing clothes, all day everyday. I tried hanging all of her clothes up high in the closet to keep her from getting them. Still that didn't work, I would still catch her trying to climb on something to reach them. Before you knew it here she would be wearing something different or just layers upon layers of clothes. I remember, one time I was in a rush to get her to a Dr.'s appointment. Late after driving across town I jump out of the car to get her out. Little did I imagine what I would find in the car seat. There she sat in a pajama top and a pair of shorts, hair all a mess. I just panicked in disbelief trying to get her descent enough to go in.
Well, most kids go through a stage and then it's done with. Well not Mady now at age 7 she is still doing this! Every day after school she raids her pantie drawer and heads for the closet. After cleaning all day it drives me crazy to peak in her room and see the drawers hanging out with clothes spewing out of them. Hangers and clothes all over the floor. While she's running around in outfit after outfit. By evening there's toys and clothes all over and you can't even see the floor. The next morning I can't even distinguish what's clean and what isn't. That is if she doesn't clean up the night before. If for some blessing she does then clean clothes are tossed in the laundry, while others are crammed in the closet hanging on to dear life on hangers. I can just see she is going to be the teenager girl I dread. She'll be one of those who leave the house and change while their at school. I don't know what I'm going to do with her? All I can say is Thank Goodness Jacob was a boy!
Anyways, I guess now we just wait and see if the old Carley comes back from Kate's past as I
said before. Well see..

Well, this year I actually tried to get my inspection after it was dead for only a couple months ( I know i'll never learn). Seeing how this year our state has a new law, if your vehicle is older than a 95 you will just receive a ticket in the mail. Being a good little girl that gave me a little umph to take it in. Well I was refused service until I get a new tire. I can still see a few tread imprints what's the problem. Now a $39 inspection just went to about $160! I didn't have the $39 to begin with. So seeing how I can't afford that and I don't know how to change the tire to my spare, I sit and wait in desperation for help. Changing a tire was the first thing my dad taught before he would allow me near the vehicle to drive. I guess I should have focused more on that lesson, instead of where I wanted to go once he gave me keys. Even so , if I did go outside and try to figure it out on my own I still would be stuck. Lucky me my check engine
light came on causing more problems. Little red light = No Sticker! My once small problem is slowly growing. Too bad the state doesn't recognize feeding my kids is a little more important than some stupid sticker. So, all I can do is drive scared hoping not to get pulled over again for no reason or get stuck in a yet another road block. Still awaiting my dreaded ticket in the mail. (..Wonder what they do if that's not paid?) Until then hopefully the cops will stay off my back and do something productive. They can start by wiping the jelly donut off their face instead of hunting down Innocent women. In any case if I turn up missing I may be in a cell with some woman named Berta. All because I don't have the money to pay for a ticket, get my car fixed and get a STICKER!!

Sorry for my lame post, but Give me a break. Did I not just say I don't feel good. Man, what do I need to do to get some symaphy around here.

Lucky me, yesterday morning I woke up sick. I don't have a doctor’s opinion but I am diagnosing myself with the Flu. I have Fever, chills, coughing, headache, sore throat, nausea and everything else above (In other words..'I'm dying'!). With the flu going around here rapid, I can only guess I picked it up at Wal-mart. With all the germ infested buggies there, I'm sure that's what did it. I slather in germ-X, every time I shop but it must not have been enough. With all the hackers out there that won't stay home when they are sick (thank you very much) I may have even gotten it air borne. Regardless I have been on couch duty and being avoided like the plague. With it being Monday and having no help and my household duties still await me. Unfortunately there was no way to call in sick and so I am forced to keep up the pace. The fact that Jacob is now crawling, our house isn't completely child proof, he learned to get out of his walker, and he isn't fond of staying in the playpen, makes it hard to rest. I was hoping the kids would hold off on getting this until I am better. But with Jacob already not sleeping well and fussy, I am sure he is taking it already. He has done nothing but cry and nothing seems to please him. It's only an hour before I try and drive to pick up the girls. Jacob is now asleep and I don't see the cleanup fairies coming anytime soon, so I will painful force myself out from underneath the covers to get things done. Please make it end!!

Sick Bear™ ContestWritten by Janice
Sick tummies are no fun at all!
Stomach flu has to be one of the most miserable parts of parenting. It is horrible to watch our children suffer – and not fun at all trying to “catch” the mess. Plus for most children, throwing up is scary too! (I don’t blame them – I am still terrified of throwing up!)
But here is something completely unique to make everyone feel a little better – an adorable, perfectly sized bowl designed for your child to hold. Made with colorful melamine in bright pink, blue or yellow, the Sick Bear™ bowl comes with textured handles for little hands, and it’s tip-resistant, sturdy, and dishwasher safe.
