Disneyland 2011

Disneyland was amazing! I could have stayed forever and loved every minute. We stayed for 5 days this time, the right amount in my opinion. We met family there and the kids had a ball playing with their cousins and it also made it possible for Rob and I to have several "mini dates", yes that's what we called them as we strolled off hand in hand. CHEESE. :) Chase enjoyed his first trip to Disneyland, he loved to watch the people and his favorite ride had to be Pirates or maybe Small World. He was an angel from sun up to sun down, really a good kid considering he is only 10 months old. Logan was an absolute delight to watch. He wanted to go on every ride and wasn't scared of anything except the Tower of Terror. He went on it, mostly to impress his cousins I think, afterwards he said, 'Mom, that was a little scary! I won't go on that ever again even if there is apple juice (his most fav). It was so adorable. He love the Buzz ride and Big Thunder Mountain. I couldn't believe he went on Space Mountain but he did and was so brave, love that kid!!! Logan also got to do Jedi Training Academy where he battled Darth Vadar it was priceless and worth every penny!! Grandma got him an official Jedi Training shirt only for true Jedi's of course. ;) The wonder of color show in the evening was unbelievable and one of the most amazing things Rob and I have ever seen....I tell you Disney is MAGIC, they know how to do it right! Now that we are back we are wondering when we will go again, my vote is next week. Hehheeee

Fire 101

Logan and Chase visited their Uncle Jay at the Smithfield Fire Station and had the VIP treatment! They had so much fun checking out the different firetrucks and ambulances. He even got to toot the horn, he sure thought he was the cat's meow! Logan has been wearing his fire hat ever since our visit and will be taking it to show and tell at Preschool!! Thanks so much Uncle Jay for a great time!!

Rough go....

Today we attempted family pics. I can honestly say it was not our best attempt. As you can see we didn't get a family pic and were lucky to get what we did get. Logan was a little grouchy (mom was too) and Chase kept spitting up all over his clothes. Geez people can someone just throw me a friggin' bone?! We still got some descent pics but nothing grand. We will have to try again to get the family pic, I guess it would help if Rob wasn't taking the picture and trying to be in the picture all at the same time. All in all I think we have some pretty cute little dudes! They are so much fun and I adore them.

Clippin the coupons....

So I used coupons for the first time today. It was totally cool to see the bill and then start watching all of the savings come off. I saved $75 and it was such a rush!! I don't think I have ever seen my grocery cart so full of food. I was so excited with my savings I literally had a little skip in my step while heading out to the car. When I got home I told Rob we can't put any of it away until we take it out of bags and look at it all!!! Seriously it was so much fun!! I got 3 free toothbrushes. I bought 3 deodorants on sale and with a coupon got 3 bottles of Olay body wash completely free!!! Olay body wash is $5.50 a bottle, I know I am awesome! :) Who knew you could actually save money and have it be so much fun. Hopefully I will get better at it, I told the check out lady that I was new to coupon'ing as if she needed me to tell her. It totally showed, I would hand her a printed out coupon with one coupon on the entire sheet. I said, I will trim those down next time. As I left she said, not bad for a newbie. I agree it felt pretty good to save so much money and have a trunk full food and goodies!! I will for sure be clippin the coupons again next week! :)

I love our little family

I love our little family!! Every morning Logan comes into my bedroom and jumps into bed with me and says, 'I love you mommy'. Melts my heart. Both he and Chase are such sweeties. Recently my mom bought new Cars legos it is pretty cool, has Mack, Lightening, etc. My mom told Logan he could borrow it for a while but that it was a toy that was going to stay at Grandma's house so he could have something to play when he goes. Logan says, 'here's the deal grandma, you can have my Thomas the tank legos and I will have your cars legos' . Yah, that sounds good he says. Totally bargaining, what a kid!!!

Rob and I had the kids in bed and we were watching tv last night. There was a mother in the show and she was appologizing to her daughter and giving her a hug and I just started tearing up. I told Rob, 'the older I get the softer I become'. I know what you are thinking, not soft that way...ok maybe that way too. :) Seriously, I could cry at the simplest thing. I think it is life experience that does it to you. Once you have kids and you go through losing loved ones you start to realize just how fragile life is. What a clich'e I know but it is true. So my thought today is just how much I love my little family. I have a wonderful husband who I adore and funny and adorable children. I am SO blessed!

Opposing Team Distractions

Name - Logan Robert Wright
Skill - Opposing Team Distractions

Logan had just finished up a rather exciting season of Soccer. He was such a delight to watch. Every time he even kicked the ball he would give thumbs up to us and make sure to tell his coach that he kicked it. I am sure she was like....uhm, I know now keep playing :) It was a lot of fun. I think one of his key strategies, since he wasn't necessarily rocking the scoreboard, was opposing team distractions. Check the picture out and you can see him 'flying' around the field. He would have several of the other team's players joining him in the fun, all the while our team was able to score points. I say use what you got baby!!! Work it.

Feeling FANTASTIC!!!

I am feeling pretty fantastic right now. The other day my sister Heather and I were shopping for some Halloween stuff. Logan and Chase were with us and like normal Logan is dragging Heather off to show her something. Well while this is happening this lady comes up to me and says, 'would your mother like one of these rings?' I said, you mean my sister??? I was totally laughing by this point and she is just mortified. Oooh she says, I must not have had a good look at her, I am so sorry. I said what are you sorry for that is hilarious!!!! She said, please don't tell her...I said oh I have to tell her this is too funny. As she is pleading with me Heather walks up and finds out that this lady thinks she is my mother. Heather and I are literally peeing our pants and this lady wants to crawl under a rock. Heather thinks it is because she was loving my kids and 'mothering' them, no pun intended. heheheeee Whatever the reason I was feeling pretty good about myself. We laughed some more and then told the lady who was still apologizing that it was fine that we would never see her again anyway. Well the next stop, who do we see??? Yep this lady so we all had another laugh at my sisters expense. If you know my sister she is beautiful and just adorable in every way so there is no reason not to absolutely get a big chuckle out of this event. Just thought I would share.
If any of you see my sister make sure to tell her you heard she was my mother!!!
