Busy Days....

This is my spring break.
*laughs*
Yea.... break... what break?????
We have been sooo flipping busy the past 5 days my head is spinning... seriously....
Saturday... kids bday party... 17 kids... 15 of those toddlers.....
Sunday.... recover... and we began to start cleaning the house for company
Sunday night bout 8pm... get a call that my parents are in town!!! But, a day early!
Go out to ice cream with them... get home bout 10 with 4 very cranky, ice cream covered, toddlers....
Monday.... I really dont remember what we did Monday morning... but I do know that the boys would NOT nap... and they had to get haircuts at 5pm....
Everyone did ok with their haircuts cept for K. K has the largest hissy fit of his life when he gets his hair cut... it took both my mom and I to hold him down... he is one powerfull little guy... he is all muscle... if ANYONE has any tips on how to make haircuts bareable for him... I would be sooo happy to hear them.... cuz it is HORRIBLE when he has his hair cut....
Then.... we had a fab dinner at Golden Coral! Yes... I love that restaurant! Soooo good!!!!
Tuesday... up early to go get birthday pics! E and F's birthdays are a month apart...so we had their party together (see sat events...) and their pics at the same time... They did wonderful!!!
First time I wasnt embarrased by their actions at the photo place!
They actually posed themselves, smiled themselves, and told the lady to hurry up and take the pics so they could go play! ;) It was wayyy too funny!
They went to the play area with Grandma and Grandpa while I stayed behind to pay the bill and pic out the pics I wanted.... then off to a very yummy Mexican lunch.... then off to Once Upon A Child... a resale shop for Easter outfits for the boys... I found all 3 of them outfits!!!!! 2 still had tags on them!!!!! One was $56... paid $5.... the other $49... paid $6. Oh yea!!!! Plus got them shoes to go with... so... 3 boy Easter outfits... One lifejacket for the little lady... 3 pairs of shoes.... 4 shirts and one outfit for the little lady = less than $50!!!!!!! LOVE Bargin shopping!!!!!!!! Gotta go there and get the boys their summer clothes.... cuz last years clothes are NOT gonna fit....
Today... up early... I went to the dr... kids stayed with Grandma while daddy and Grandpa went off to a retiree lunch... we went to lunch at White Castle!!! Which was very good! (I only get to eat there with my mom.... since dh cant stand it.... but me and the kids.... we can eat some WC!!!)

Add in MAJOR Housecleaning... and there you have my Spring Break!
Busier than when I am in School.....

Our company arrives tomorrow.... we have seriously cleaned this house... I hope they enjoy our efforts.... Our house is usually acceptable...but...well... not good enough for dh... so now it is super-duper clean.... (till the kids wake up in the morning of course!)

Well.. we kept the camera handy these past few days...



E is NOT happy that I am once again taking hair cut pics....

Hmm...my suggestion - long hair. ;-) Ruby's only had one haircut (to fix self-inflicted damage) and it was awful too so no suggestions. Hope you find a little time to relax before your back at school.

Wow! And I thought I was a busy little bee! With Logan (who also can't stand haircuts) is the place we take him lets him pick out a sucker to have during the cut and puts a movie on for him. Sometimes we do it at home and when it's warm we cut his hair outside, Logan thinks thats cool.

Well maybe it's not the most relaxful spring break but oh what a fun time and I still wish I could find a hair cutting place that had those cute car things. The kids are adorable.
