Ten on Tuesday

1. I LOVE being able to open the windows. Sitting in the family room with the screen door open, listening to the trees rustle, and feeling the breeze, LOVE IT!

2. Recently we had a family photo shoot with Claire Beeler Photography! She managed to capture all of the shots I wanted. I am still debating what I am going to do with them, so no shots posted today, BUT I just love her, and she has my perpetual business.

3. Anyone been to Legoland or know anything about it?? Jackson desperately wants to go, and it seems to be as expensive as Disneyland, if not more, so I didn't know if it is worth it?

4. Whenever Jackson's school closes, it takes Monday and Friday off. That makes for a VERY long week for mommy. Tyler home Thurs, Jackson home Friday, all weekend, Jackson home Monday, Tyler home Tues, FINALLY back in school a week later. I am not a fan of this schedule. Today is the last day of this break, and I couldn't be happier!

5. I don't even know if I should share with you what a smoking deal I got on some gift certificates for Mary Coyle, MAINLY because many of my readers are invited to Tyler's birthday party, and I don't want you to think I am cheap, BUT I can't resist. I was able to buy $100 worth of gift certificates for $50. I can use them for the party, and I have my friend Tricia to thank-I think she needs a blog. She texted me Sunday night, and I thought it would just be too good to be true, BUT nope, I went yesterday, and the only restriction is that you can't use them the same day! Hooray!

6. Pat and I went to a commitment ceremony on Friday night. It was seriously one of the top ten evenings in my life. I haven't laughed so hard in such a long time. Good times, good memories, good friends!

7. I love FALL!

8. I am sick of coming up with things to make for dinner.

9. Tyler is a diva. She changes shoes and outfits twenty times a day. Decides what she will and won't wear. How can she be my child? I wear the same black pants and t-shirt almost every day. Maybe she is already embarassed by me and trying to do the opposite! She is the FIRST to compliment me on any new item of clothing I may get.

10. Jackson was GREAT about Tyler's birthday this year. Constantly saying, "Whatever Tyler wants, it's her birthday!" That's because he knows his is coming and plans on us saying the same thing for him all day!

We are huge fans of Legoland. We do Disney alot but Legoland is less crowded and the rides are all fun! I am hoping to take my kids for Zach's Birthday this year!

Colleen said...

How old are your kids? Should I wait until they are a little older to take them, is 3 and 4/5 too young???

Claire said...

I saw this yesterday: "Visit any participating Pick Up Stix during the month of October and receive an offer for FREE child admission with paid adult admission to Legoland"

You should call the Moon Valley one and see if they have them!!!

Colleen said...

Ooooh Claire, gonna have to check it out!!! THANKS!

we haven't been to Legoland yet but many of the girls friends have been. I've heard when the kids hit 6 it's passe so the sooner the better. It is expensive not quite as pricey as Disney though and I think it's really just a one day deal. when are you thinking of coming? maybe we could meet you there!

Colleen said...

Meet me there??? I was planning on staying at your house!!!!!!!!!!!


I was aiming for J's birthday, but I don't know! It would be a very impromptu trip!

Cynthia said...

hahahahahahahaha :) ok good we should be here then! We are going skiing in February for President's Day and then hopefully, fingers crossed, pray to God it happens we're going to Hawaii for Spring Break, but we should, be here for the holidays! if I have my way that is :)

My kids are OLD 10 & 13. The last time we went was when they were 8 & 11. They loved it! Both said they like it better than Disney! The rides are geared toward younger kids but my son is a LEGO fanatic so it was great!
