Ava and Petsmart

We brought the kids and Madison to Petsmart this evening. They were having a special Pet Birthday celebration with pictures, games, contests......and dog treats (you may know where I am going with this already...). Gabriella saw a table where they were sampling a certain brand of dog treats and she picked one up for Madison and gave it to her. When Madison took it, it broke into pieces. Ava promptly took a piece and I told her not to eat because it was for Maddie. She turned and walked away all the while shoving the treat into her own mouth. I did not know whether I should laugh, cry or vomit, lol!

You Thought You Were Having a Bad Day, lol!

A New Baby!

Bill and his girlfriend, Automese, had their baby Friday night. She weighed 6lbs 14 oz (a whole 2lbs smaller than Ava when she was born!) and her name is Aryanna Elizabeth. I am always hoping that my sister will have a baby as I really want to be an aunt. Since Paul and Bill are brothers, that technically makes me an aunt now! Too bad they live in Mass and I don't really know Bill's girlfriend at all. I only have seen her 3 times or so and then they all moved out of Florida. At least I get to go do some baby shopping this week for Aryanna! We are hoping to go up to Mass this summer to meet Paul's new niece. He seemed pretty excited Friday night...I think my babylove may have rubbed off a teeny bit on him ;)

Here are some pics, too...we all think she looks just like her mom...my sister said she looks like a mini-me of Automese!

It's Called a Diaper!

Paul asked me yesterday if I thought Ava had a big bottom. I laughed and told him no, I did not think she did. Apparently, the day before, Ava had on some black pants on that made Paul feel that she had a lot of junk in her trunk, lol! I tried to patiently explain to Paul that Ava was wearing a cloth diaper and that they tend to be a bit cumbersome under clothes. I guess I should not be too concerned with his comments. Being that he has some sad crazy things in the past. Back before Gabriella was born, he asked me if it were possible for us to have an African American baby. For those that don't know us both, Paul and I are about as white as they come, lol!

I have been trying to get caught up on my pictures. I have been having a hard time actually uploading them to my computer so I have been taking my memory card to Sam's and having the pics put on a CD. Here is one I really like of Chase.

Saving Money

The GRE did not go as well as I had hoped, so we will move on for now to things that actually make me happy, lol!

I went to Albertson's yesterday to pick up some TP that was on sale as well as some hamburger buns. The TP was on sale for $1 for a 4 roll pack. AND, I had a $1.00 off coupon...actually 8 of them! So, I purchased 8-4 packs and a pack of hamburger buns for less than $2. WOOHOO!
