We had Chase's Indiana Jones party this past weekend. The kids had tons of fun!

I have never seen any of the movies, but I guess they eat some gross stuff in one of them. I found this really cute spider bread at Publix and had to order it!

We set up a pool with sand and stocked it with all kinds of goodies so the kids could go on an archaeology expedition.

Angela bought a toy whip that makes noise for Chase. Of course, all the kids wanted to play with it, including Ava!

We got an Indiana Jones "cupcake cake" from Walmart that was not only super cute, it was also super yummy!

The kids played so much, even Chase had to sit down for a break!

Happy Birthday Chase-a-roo! We love you!

Photo Shoot with Karen

I had Ava's pictures done about 2 weeks ago with Karen Q. She has her own business, Captured Hearts Photography
She is a self taught photographer and is sooooo awesome at what she does! I will definitely be using her again!!!

Probably Had to be There

"Abel is completely deaf now. Isn't that right Abel?"


Chase's Top 5

I can't hardly believe it, but Chase turned 8 this past Sunday. Where has the time gone! He wanted to tell me some of his favorite things...

1.) white cheese pizza
(Norman's or Cici's- he is not too fond of the version I have tried to concoct ;)

2.) Cheeseburgers
(He loves about all of them! His preferred fast food version is Burger King and he really, really likes Cheeseburger in Paradise which we have been to NJ)
3.) Star Wars/Indiana Jones movies and action figures
(as well as the action figures from Halo)
4.) Snakes
(Chase really likes creatures in general)
5.) Sharks

10 Timely Facts!

"The time will be changing again. I think on Sunday but not sure. Anyhow this is our 10th Homeschool Memoirs so this week it’s going to be about 10 timely facts about you! Write 10 interesting, crazy, weird, fun facts about you! Include facts about you as a woman, a wife, a mommy, a homeschooler, a homekeeper, a taxi-driver, a cook, etc . I only put 10 facts because I didn’t want to overwhelm you, but you’re welcome to do more! I just posted 101 Facts about myself on my blog, which you can take a look at if you should like."

1.) I think I have become what would be referred to as a professional student. I have a BA from UCF and have tons more credits than I would ever need. I still don't know what to do with myself and just applied for the nursing program...but I don't really want to be a nurse...I just don't know what to do!!!!

2.) I have a strange penchant for reusable shopping bags, but rarely remember to actually bring them to the store with me.

3.) I am super indecisive most of the time...I think ;)

4.) I rarely ever order dessert, but I love to pick at Paul's desserts. He likes to buy cookies at the mall and I always steal the M&M's or chocolate chips out of them. He offers to buy me my own, but I don't want my own. He offers to buy me bags of M&M's or chocolate chips, but I don't really like chocolate too much...go figure;)

5.) I hate, hate, hate mayonnaise.

6.) I adore babies!

7.) I love cold weather and despise the heat. This has led to highly unhealthy relationship with the Weather Channel.

8.) I am a complete germophobe. I just bought the largest container of hand sanitizer I have ever seen in my life from Sam's and it made me irrationally happy to purchase it. My 21 month old can clearly say, "hand sanitizer".

9.) I only like funny/stupid or funny/romantic movies. Everything else is much too serious.

10.) I actually enjoy watching shows like the "Suite Life of Zack and Cody", "Hannah Montana" and "That's So Raven". The kids were not home a few weeks ago and I caught myself watching "That's So Raven" all by myself and laughing hysterically the whole time!
