Our Friends, Melissa & Doug

Melissa and Doug ROCKS!!

There's no other way to put it.

They are brain toys. They are made in the USA by NORMAL people.

They are bright in color. And high quality... which normally mean high price tag.

Personally, I would rather pay for something that isn't cheap plastic and will last longer.

But when Melissa and Doug goes on sale... I get HAPPY!!

Zulily has Melissa & Doug on sale RIGHT NOW. 

Products as low as $6.99 which is an incredible steal.

Here's some of the kids' wishlist of items.

$25 $16.99

$17.99 11.99

$20.00 $11.99

And much more like all their vehicles... their instruments their art things. There are great products for a great price. Sure to make the kiddo in your life very happy for birthdays and holidays.

So go!! Stock up!! Let them know I sentcha <3

We are 4!!!

I can't believe Alexandra & Grayson are 4!!!

I still remember my last day of work, coming home to the house clean (mom and Gary were here and cleaned the house and cooked dinner)... they were preparing for the next day. The day that the twins would arrive.

When I got home... there was a sense of relief. Then the emotions hit. I was excited. I was nervous. I was sooo HAPPY.

I had a scheduled C-section at noon on November 16.

I woke up after a good night's sleep... took my shower, did my hair and put MAKEUP on. Yes, I am vain. Yes, I know. Brian even told me I was the most vain person he knew... Whateve. LOL I knew there would be picture taken and I had to look good for my babies!!

We waited and waited. I was so thirsty and hungry and of course... I couldn't eat or drink anything. Then the nurse came in and said that there was an emergency c-section and I had to wait.

No prob!! If there was another mama or baby in jeoprady... TAKE CARE OF THEM.

When we finally got called back... I was so excited. I think Brian was extremely nervous.

I did NOT like the fact that I couldn't see what they were doing... especially since I smelt this burning smell!! I asked B what it was and he said he couldn't smell anything. SO, I said it louder!! HAHAHA. The anesthesiologist then said it was me. I didn't realize they used a hot knife to cut me open like butter. GROSS.

Baby A came out first. They showed me Alex. She was tiny and sweet. They cleaned her up... and we took a pic. Her face was so tiny and feminine. She looked like a little girl. She was MY little girl.

Then here came Gray. Screaming and crying and causing a fuss!! He was long and lean and lighter in skin tone then her. His face more masculine. Darlin' lil' man. MY little man.

Brian holding Alex... Me holding Gray

They were both healthy as can be!! No NICU for these monsters. We were so lucky.

And to this day we are so blessed to have in our lives. There personalities are wonderfully different. They are loving and caring. They are growing up to be GOOD little people... and INDIVIDUALS.

I took a few pictures of them on their actual birthday. They have changed so much... yet stayed the same. She is still MY little girl and he's still MY little man.

And our little man!!

Celebrate With US!!!

Last week was super busy. It started on Sunday... we CELEBRATED the kids' (yes, all three kiddos) birthday.

For the last several years, November 16 or around then, has had incredible weather. So this year, we used that knowledge and opted to have a birthday party at the park. 

BOY am I glad we did. We couldn't have asked for better weather! Though, I have to admit, earlier in the week, I was worried... rain was in the forecast. But since Texas is sooooo unpredictable we didn't panic... it ended up being sunny, breezy and with a high of 80!! LOL. It was great.

We rented a bounce house from Great Party Rentals, a local business. It was what the kids wanted so we splurged. 

The bounce house, like always, was a HIT!! All the kids (over 25 kiddos came) bounced and slid (there was a slide)... and played on the play ground. The adults chit chatted or threw the football around.

There was hot dogs and chips... and CUPCAKES <3


Here's some pics of our day:
