Saturday's tournament went really well. Even though our DD's boyfriend didn't compete until the very end of the day, it was very interesting. We have never been to any karate meets or tournaments so it was fun to watch.
Her boyfriend took 2nd place in his division. He is what they call a green/black belt. I think our DD is very safe with this boy around. He could kick anyone's butt that was bothering her:) We got to watch him spar. It is about a 5-7 minute fight and every time they get a point they stop the match.
I really liked watching the 5-6yr old kids. They really got into what they were doing and they were so darn cute. There were 23 rings with something going on in each one. I don't think our DD was upset that her boyfriend didn't do anything until the very end because they got to spend all day together. It was a lot of fun and I am glad we went.

What a day

Well, the snow has come and gone and we got about 1 inch at the most. Now it is the high of 10 degrees and along with the cold weather comes the flu. Our son has stayed home the last two days with some sort of flu. All I will say is, remember that movie Daddy Daycare where the kid comes out of the bathroom and says "I missed?" Well, that really happened. Yes, yesterday was not a really great day. What with a sick child and watching all my boys in the daycare and still recovering from Friday, I'll say I'm glad it is over. Today is much better in the flu area. Luckily no one else has come down with it. I kept him home just one more day
just so he can fully recover and I don't have to be in trouble with
the school just in case something happens. (Sorry if it is too much
information)Well, gotta go get my day started and tame all of my
wild Indians:) They really need some place to go run off all of their
energy. That is one bad thing about daycare kids
cannot go to the park and run off their energy. I wish I had half
their energy some days. I could clean the house and get every
chore done in about 1 hour. haha

Winter is finally here...

It finally feels like winter here. Woke up this morning and there was snow on the ground. We have only had one snowstorm this year and we are almost thrilled to see it snow again. Usually by now we are tired of snow, but this year we are happy to see it. We are suppose to get 3-5 inches by tomorrrow. The kids are still hoping for a snow day. Will keep you updated. Today I think I am just going to enjoy watching the snow and make some hot chocolate.

taking it easy.........

I wasn't going to be on all weekend since i had oral surgery, but I am feeling a lot better and getting really bored watching tv all day and doing nothing. I can't stand being "under the weather" and nothing getting done. I sit and think about what needs to be done and what I can't do until i get better. Drives me nuts!!! I guess i should enjoy my "time off" but I just like to keep everything going. I know I need to learn to depend on everyone else to get things done every once in a while but man it bothers me.
We are suppose to get a snow storm or wintery mix of things starting tomorrow. Finally some winter weather. I didn't think we were going to see any snow at all. Maybe it will continue into Monday and the kids will have the day off from school to help me with the daycare on Monday. That would be really nice. Especially since i told the daycare parents i would be open on Monday even after the surgery. I know I should have taken an extra day off but we have to have our income and i only have 3 kids that day anyway.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. I am going to veg in front of the tv again since i need to lay down for a while. :P

not so wordless wednesday

I know you aren't suppose to write on "wordless wednesday"

picture. We went out on the same wave runner in the fall and it
was a blast. We didn't get as good of a picture as my dd did but
I loved being able to see the dolphins that close!!!!!!! Just had to

If you give a mom a muffin

If you give a mom a muffin,
She will want a cup of coffee to go with it.
She'll pour herself some.
The coffee will get spilled by her three year old
She'll wipe it up.

Wiping the floor, she will find some dirty spcks.
She'll remember she has to do some laundry.
When she puts the laundry in the washer,
She'll trip over some snow boots and bump into the freezer.

Bumping into the freezer will remind her she has to plan for dinner tonight.
She will get out apound of hamburger.
She will look for her cookbook-
(101 ways to make things with a pound of hamburger)
The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail.
She will see the phone bill, which is due tomorrow,
She will look for her checkbook.

The checkboobk is in her purse that is being dumped out by her two year old,
She'll smell something funny
She'll change the two year old.
While she is changing the two year old, the phone rings
Her four year old will answer and hang up.

She'll remember that she wants to phone a friend to come for coffee on
Thinking of coffee will remind her she was going to have a cup.
She will pour herself some.

And chances are.........
If she has a cup of coffee......
Her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it!!!

be beautiful young ladies and I am very proud of them.

It's official...The kids have gone back to school. Yes i am glad they are back to their routine. Believe me if they would have stayed home much longer i think all of us would be going crazy right now. They need to have that time at school and time at home. They were getting to the point where they were getting bored. Any moms ever heard that phrase"i'm bored,there's nothing to do here" Now we are all back to our "normal" lives and life just goes on. I know i will be ready for school to end in a couple of months but right now life is good,just me and my daycare kids and nap favorite time of the day.
