Tuesday :)

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!

Ours was lovely.  I made a Bunny Cake, pictured above :)  Kevin colored Easter Eggs, and Alexis didn't want too...she is growing up.  We had Ham and all the fixings.

Right before Easter, Alexis went on a trip to Washington DC.  I didn't realize there was so much to see.  Here is a picture of the White House.  I am waiting for the teacher to send me the CD of pictures she has, she has a picture of Alexis in front of the White House.  I was so excited for her to go on this trip :)  She really enjoyed it and learned a lot

Today is Tuesday and the weather has been lovely.  It is supposed to start raining this afternoon, so I want to refill my hummingbird feeders before the rain...LOL.  I just love hummingbirds, and they have returned:)

I really like our new home.  I want to hang some curtains up downstairs and in my bedroom this time, instead of just having blinds...I think it will add a touch of coziness to the house.  I just wish I had some decorating sense...LOL.....

Have a great day...tonight's dinner will be a ham casserole with lots of cheese!

April 7th 2014~~~~ Monday!



Good Morning!
I hope everyone had a wonderful March!
Our March was extremely busy.  We moved.
Below is a picture of our new home, it is just a little ways down the road from our other home that we lived in.
I have to say this was probably the hardest and most exhausting move I have ever done...moving across the country was not this difficult.


I have been working on unpacking everything and putting everything in its place, while still trying to do all the normal things that need to be done, like school, lunches, dinners and laundry......We are on Spring Break this week which I am so happy about!
Have a wonderful day :)
It is raining extremely hard today!

Ammonia!


Did you all know about this?  The amazing thing that Ammonia can do?  I have to say that ammonia is very intimidating to me...I mean what exactly do you do with it?  I got a whiff of it and oh, boy..is it strong!!!!  Be very careful not to breathe this in.

Okay, so I was on a mission to get my stove and oven sparkly clean, like new sparkly clean......I scrubbed the gas grates until my fingers went numb...LOL...
I am a very clean person, and I think I do a pretty good job keeping my home clean :)  I am talking clean, not messy.  Of course with kids there will be toys here and there, but the floor is clean and the toys are clean...LOL..Did that make sense.  Okay back to my stove/oven....I could not get the grates or racks clean...so I posted a question on Facebook, and a few people had mentioned to put the grates in a plastic bag, like a ziploc, add a little Ammonia and let it sit for 24 hours, outside.  Well, I did it, and it was AMAZING!!!!  The grime pretty much just fell off......Wear gloves, too when working with Ammonia.  I was so impressed.  I am going to do some pots and pans that need some TLC, too :)

Sunday!

I hope everyone had a lovely Sunday :)

Tomorrow is back to school...can you believe it??  They have had a nice long 2 weeks off...and I am so sad to let them go.....How many days until Easter Break?

Okay, so March 8th or around there things should be back to normal and settled down....a lot of things have been going on, hence my lack of blogging for awhile, sometimes I didn't know if I was coming or going.  I am sure you have all had days like that....I have done a lot of praying and just Letting Go and Letting God.

Dinner tonight was take out.  My husband and I did some shopping late this afternoon.  I needed things for school lunches.  Alexis has a choice to buy or bring and she wants homemade lunches..Little Kevin does not have a choice, because of his food allergies, I will probably always make his lunch...I don't mind.  Sometimes I fall in a rut and run out of ideas on what to pack for them....Kind of like dinner...LOL.

My Kirby Vacuum died on me...such a sad, sad, sad day..I LOVE MY KIRBY!!!
Anyway, we have to take it in for repairs.  We got a new vacuum to use while we wait, and it is nice to have a few vacuums, especially when you have stairs.....Okay, I really LOVE our new vacuum..it is a Eureka Airspeed Exact Pet Model, it was 79.00 :)

No matter what vacuum I use, it tends to break...everyone says that it has to do with how much I vacuum..which is everyday....don't you all vacuum everyday?  Is that not normal...LOL.....

Friday!

 After everyone was safe and sound at home after snowjam2014, my son used our boogie board as a sled to play in the snow :)
 He also made his very first snow angel.  That was a good day, and it was COLD!!!!

My daughter will always remember snowjam, because she had to spend the night at the school.  There was absolutely no way we could get to her.  The road was completely blocked off by cars, it was an incredible site....My husband rescued her though, by walking to get her, my hero :)

Tonight's dinner was pork chops with sauteed onions, mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, corn and a salad :)

Two more days and my children go back to school..oh, how I have enjoyed them home!

It was a lovely day today.

P.S. I think I am the only one who does not watch the Olympics.... I am happy when I hear our country won a medal, but I am not a fan of sports of any kind, not even skating...LOL.  I miss my Dateline on Friday nights!  ;)
