10 on Tuesday

1. 5 days....the count-down is totally on!! I can hardly wait. I'm so sick of this weather!!!
2. I started packing on Sunday........
3. Dylan keeps wanting to go to the park. Last week we went 2 days since there was a heat-wave and it got into the 40's for a couple days. Here he is at the park last summer with Grandma Walleta.

4. This morning at 7:00 A.M. in Mexico it was 70 degrees!!!!!!! I can hardly wait!!
5. We have this nice little bay window ledge in our living room. I just love it and so does Dylan. He has been just playing and playing latley on that legde. So happy!! I just like watching him play and talk to himself.

6. I decided since we are going to be gone next week, we aren't going to the store this week to buy anything. So that means we have to eat what's in the cupboard..... I've decided that I could probably make it about 2-3 weeks without going. Hey, I like a good deal......
7. Well, we HAD to go today........we ran out of M&M's and Puffcorn.....

and when you are potty training, those are both key items in our house. Dylan just LOVES "popcorn".
8. Dylan is working on learning his colors. This morning I asked him what his favorite color was and he said pink!
9. Last night our boys team played at home. We went and got to see one of our favorite players, Tyler dunk it!!!!!!

I totally stole this picture from Kay, she takes pictures of all the sports teams as well as weddings, families, ect. She does a great job.
10. 5 days, I am just so excited!!!!!!!

I don't really have anything exciting to post so I thought I would just show some pictures of my 2 favorite boys......
Here's Dylan reading the other day before nap time!! He's been doing really good with the potty training. Still no poop though.......hoping that will come soon.

Here's Daddy and Dylan before church last week. The minute Daddy gets home from work, Dylan says....let's tackle football Daddy!!!!

Have a wonderful week!!!

I got got tickets for my in-laws to go to a KSU game for Christmas. Of course the tickets that I bought from Aunt Eunice were for a game that they couldn't go to!!! So I thought great, Shane, Dylan and I could go...nope, Shane had a meeting also(and once you are 2 you have to have a ticket to get into KSU games, so Dylan didn't come along). So I called Jenni and Amillia to come with me!!!
Here they are........Amillia wasn't too sure about all of it!!!

Jenni, Amillia and I even made it on the big screen!!!!

Amillia enjoyed all the dancers....

For a Wednesday night there was a VERY big crowd!!!
And even though they didn't play their best they came away with an exciting win!!!

What a fun night!!!

So sweet........

Last night I went over to my in-laws and just my brother-in-law Shaun was home for the weekend. He is 18 and goes to college out west. His girlfriend is still in High School. He wanted to surprise her with a steak dinner. I thought that was soo sweet.
Here's Shaun.......

Here he is making his potatoes(which he has never done before)

He even decorated!!!!! It was just sooo cute!!! I know for a FACT he's even seen his brother or Dad do this before!!!!!!!!

He even set the table....all by himself!!!!

And he even got a little gift and card!!!

I hope Dylan grows up to be as sweet as Uncle Shaun!!!

Food on Friday

On Monday nights at our house it's Breakfast night and we have breakfast food for supper. Dylan and Daddy love my breakfast cassrole so I made that on Monday night.
First you brown 1 lb. of sausage

This is my favorite kitchen tool.......not sure what it's called. It's from Pampered Chef. It makes your meat into little nice crumbles!!

Here I am demonstrating it......very easy and fun to use!!

Then add one bag of hashbrowns, thawed
4-6 eggs
cream of chicken
and as much shredded cheese as you like

Bake at 350 for an hour and here you go.....
it's so good and so easy, my brother-in-law loves it too, so whenever they are back I try to make one and send over to my Mother-in-laws and that's one less meal she has to make for their big family!!!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend........

My New Best Friend

About 2-3 weeks ago Dylan came down with strep throat and ear infection. And since then really hasn't been 100%. Well, last weekend Daddy and I both got sick.....and sure enough it was strep throat!! So this week I have started washing, wiping, cleaning and doing TONS of laundry to get the germs out of our house. So these are my new best friend.....can't image how many I've went through!!!

We are sooooo praying for warmer weather and more sunshine!!!

Our morning

We woke up to snow this morning......again. Hopefully, this will FINALLY be the last of the snow.....but I'm not going to hold my breath!!!
So this morning we did some painting(my Mom gave me this idea and Dylan loved it)!!!
We put paint down and Dylan drove his cars through the paint.

He just loved all the tracks the cars made then!!!

Usually painting projects don't last too long for Mr. Dylan and he's on to something he painted for 30 minutes!! Just had a ball!!!

Then of course it was time to clean up, which Dylan loves to do also. Our animals even got to join in the fun and got a "bath"!!!!!

Let's just hope that spring is right around the corner, we are ready to play outside and go to the park again!!!!!
