Samantha's PJ party!

 Samantha and I waiting for the the party to begin!
Samantha really wanted a sleepover party but I just couldnt envision 8  2nd graders sleeping! So I suggested a PJ party where all the girls brought their favorite doll and wore their jammies. It was perfect. They all got along great and the 5 hours flew by...
Pizza! I bought 3 cheese pizzas for the girls. Samantha usually eats 3 or 4 pieces and since most of the girls are on the basketball team I figured they all were hungry from playing their game but nope they didnt even finish one pizza! They were all just to excited to eat!

The girls and their dolls!

Craft time! Pillow cases with fabric markers! Samnatha's idea!!

Happy Birthday with the Costco red velvet cake!

Wii Dance!

What a great party!

The twinks spent the evening with their dad boat sushi, dollar tree and a movie!


Samantha played another season of basketball through the YMCA this year. Soccer is still her favorite sport but she had a great time and she's getting pretty darn good! I think she just likes being with all her friend.


I am on a 19 day walking streak. I either walk outside or on the treadmill. I try for 2 miles but sometimes that always doesnt work. The girls love it when I walk on the treadmill becasue they always want to take a turn. Courtney walked for 25 minutes one day. Samantha decided she could run 8 mph and ended up falling and getting a treadmill burn on her arm. Ouch I dont think she will go that fast again!

Valentines Day

What A fabulous valentines day! Courtney had her Valentine's class party at 12:30 and Sydney and Samantha's was at 2:30. So I did have to go back and forth between those two classes and I was good and only ate one cookie! Jon came home a little early a gave the girls flowers and chocolates. The kids came home with a lot of suckers and other candies so they will be on a good sugar high for the next couple days!!

Courtney's loot!

The past couple of weeks there have been reports of a man trying to abduct kids around Whatcom county. Each time the kid scream and ran away so thankfully nothing has happened but the guy is still on the loose. I havent really talked to the kids about stranger danger or anything like that which I know is bad but I havent want to freak them out. Today we went to the mall and we were going to have lunch at the food court. Courtney wanted Clam chowder at Ivars so we were standing line and Courtney wandered a bit I got her back but then I turned around aand she was gone. I mean gone I yelled her name and nothing. I yelled again and nothing I got a little freaked out! Sydney was holding my hand and looking with me and we couldnt find her anywhere. We ran around the food court yelling her name and people were looking at us then we found her and I was so mad at her that I told ehr we were leaving then she freaked out yelling at me "give me one more chance" and running away from me. SO now everybody is looking at me. I finally got her and now Sydney is mad too but there was no way we were staying. I go them outside and Jon showed up (he was meeting us for lunch) and he helped me get them in the car. It was crazy studpid how they were acting by then. As we were driving home I broke down and told them all about the bad guy that takes little kids away and they need to stay near me at all times. The car ride was silent the whole way home. I think it all sunk in but I never want to have that feeling ever again!!
