Prayers for a surgery/Flashback Friday/Funniness

First off.....Lo gets her tonsils/adenoids out tomorrow mornin', so please say a quick prayer for her and us...she will be staying overnight cause she has had 5 other surgeries so they want to keep an eye on her...

Ok...This pic was taken in Feb./Mar. of's of Bug, and she just looks so cute!!

And this leads to something she said this week....

I went to a wedding this past Saturday and I put fake nails on..I can't grow the things and I think everyone looks prettier with their nails done so...anywho...Bug really liked them, she said they looked so pretty and so on, well they started to fall off, and I put a couple of them on the lamp stand.....she found one and just stared at it to figure out what it was.....she finally put it on her nail and said

" Ah Ha! She was pretending" Too funny!!!!

Naomi's favorite!!

I think this is one of Naomi's favorite things to do...She loves to sit on her daddy's shoulders and play(spit) in his hair! It cracks me up to watch her do this! If she is fussy this is where we put her!! Just thought I'd share!

What is your kiddies favorite place to be??

Two for Tuesday...

Well it's Tuesday....I guess I'll do a pic and a pics of my kiddies today...

This is a pic of my first This is my puppers Jackson (or when he's in trouble it's Jackson Andrew..) Someone kicked him out of there car by where Cory used to work, about 9 years ago....He knows I am a dog lover so he brought him to my apartment...Jackson is my baby, although since having kids, he's kind of been on the back burner.....he is about 11 years old, but I think he still looks like a puppy sometimes. He is a mutt, but I think he's either a springer spaniel, or a brittany spaniel mix...not quite sure...

The other night I fixed something really yummy and just thought I would share it with ya!

Taco Soup
1 lb ground turkey
1 onion diced
1 package taco seasoning(low sodium)
1 package dry ranch dressing mix
1 can black beans
1 can fat free refried beans
1 can kidney beans
1 28 oz can of tomatoes
1 can of mexi corn(or fiesta corn)
1 can of tomatoes with chilies

brown turkey with onion, don't drain, add taco seasoning and ranch mix and cook together for a minute

start opening cans and start dumping them in...don't drain them...simmer together for an hour....

I topped this soup with baked tortilla chips(crushed) on top, cheddar cheese, fat free sour cream, and some fresh cilantro(which I am totally addicted to) It was yummy!!!!!

This is also a great recipe because I had everything but the cilantro and chips already here!!

Hope ya love it!!

Weekend recap!

This weekend was the girls' 4th birthday party! Loads of fun was had, cake was eaten, presents were unwrapped! I was very tired after continuous cleaning, and stressing...But now it's over and it's back to packing for our move which is coming up.... Cory starts his job on the 17th, but we are not moving till the beginning of March...Lo has her tonsillectomy on the 20th, so I don't want to be going back and forth!!

Here is a little family shot-minus Omers, she was napping....

Here is Lo before the party-she is sporting the tutu I made her and also a shirt that I had made for her..

And here is Bug in her outfit as well.....she is posing!

I made their My Little Pony cakes....they didn't turn out like I would have liked, but the girls loved them and that is the main point!

These are some adorable aprons that their GiGi(great grandma) made for them. They love to cook and pretend to cook, so these are perfect for my little chefs in training...and the fact that my mamaw made them is something we will cherish forever! They had a really wonderful day but now we have to pack up their new things and they are sad...They each got a Big Wheels, and I won't even open the box(we do have a foot of snow), an they will be easier to move in the box! But they will soon get to play with everything again!
