So I've been using the Easter Bunny as a bribe for a week now. I've been telling Braden that the Easter Bunny wont come if he isn't being good. (Yeah I know that is Santa Claus - but he is 3 he doesn't know any better). So Last night when I was shopping at Walmart I came across these Gel clingy thingys. I thought they were adorable. So I had Braden and Parker assist me in putting them on the TOP (yeah I'm no dummy) pane of the storm door. I told Braden that we are decorating so the Easter Bunny can find our house. He of course went upstairs took his nap and when he awoke he asked if the Easter Bunny stopped by yet. The child has no concept of time. So do you think he will keep it up for Two more weeks? Pray it does, I love bribes.
So, Okay I know that Robert Downey JR. Is my man, but Simon Baker AKA Patrick Jane is quickly taking his place. We got our TV Guide magazine today that usually gets thrown in the trash cause we don't use it, but oh no this one did not make it to the trash and I'm thinking about framing it and putting him on my desk. PRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. For any of you that love a good sitcom watch the Mentalist. Check your local listings!
Brant turned 30 Sunday! I'm so glad that he is now in the 30's with me. Parker loved the cake as you can see, he started relaxing while he was finishing his cake (actually his second piece of cake).
Braden knew it was Daddy's Birthday and minus cake, candles and singing you must be photographed while enjoying your day. Braden found his play camera and didn't miss a shot. Notice that his hands are filthy with chocolate cake, didn't stop him.
One of the Birthday Boy (or Man as he is correcting me) blowing out the 1 boot candle I had left over from Braden's Birthday - For some reason I couldn't find the crayola ones I had lol. We enjoyed singing Happy Birthday to daddy, Braden knows the song decently. Parker smiled and I think applauded at the end with excitement.
Store bought - DON'T JUDGE. Notice the finger smudge on the yellow balloon. The resident Monkey (aka PARKER) decided he was ready for cake and helped himself. By climbing into his chair and then onto the table top.
We enjoyed dinner at El Patio after a Sunday Drive. Not sure what was going on in the picture other than me annoying him with my camera phone.
Friday Night we went to the OKC Thunder Game. If you click on the photo you will notice a balancing Bison. He is rather scary and if I was a child I think he would haunt my dreams, but he was entertaining. Cant say the game was all to entertaining. The atmosphere of the game was just odd. Not sure why. We so enjoyed the Hornets game we attended last year. This was just fizzled and the team wasn't on and well... we lasted to the end of the 3rd quarter then went to the Olive Garden. We sure hope they continue to get better, they didn't do half bad for their first year here and how the beginning of the season started for them. Cross your fingers we can get Blake Griffin in the draft. The Thunder played the Utah Jazz, there was a cute couple with a baby girl that was routing for the Jazz. It was cute, the lady entertained us with her hootin' and hollerin' ---- she had something to cheer about.
FINALLY BUNK BEDS. Braden officially has been moved to a big boy bed and he is actually staying in it all night. He was so excited to get the beds. He loves to play on the top bunk but has informed Parker that he can sleep up there. I'm thinking he is a scardy cat. We haven't moved Parker into the room yet, they just don't seem to know how to turn it off. Any pointers on how to integrate two rowdy boys?
Look at those legs! What a cutie! As you can see Parker is not afraid of climbing... now if we can make sure Braden doesn't knock him down in the process we will be moving in the right direction.
So we decided to get some fish one night on a whim at Walmart. I have bad luck with fish but I was hoping my new found motherhood skills would help me be a good fish caretaker. NOPE as you can see we had 4 fish (you cant see one of the sharks) as of today we have 1 tiger barb and two snails that we added last weekend. We stink! I'm thinking we need to get some more fish.... but the Barb is aggressive so who knows what we can get to go with him.
So like I said in the post below I fell down the stairs - This is the 3rd day I think, the one below is from the first day. I am almost completely off the pain meds and muscle relaxers. The chiropractor really does seem to be helping somewhat. At least with the soreness. Only issue is I didn't know I had hurt my shoulder blade and when the massage guy started he located like 6 knots. I got a lesson on why you get knots cause I get them a lot. Something about congestion and then tweaking it, I also heard that if don't drink enough water that sure doesn't help the situation. I'm horrible about drinking period so I now have a clue of why I always get knots in my muscles. Note to self. DRINK MORE WATER PLEASE.
