Race Car Party...

Actually it turned more into a "speed" party, but no one really noticed the lack of race car... :)

I had the cutest Littlest Pet Shop party all planned out and was very excited. I had the cutest activities and such cute little decorations...and then Lucas pointed out...

"Why are you doing Littlest Pet Shop? She likes race cars." and that was the end of it. From that comment forward she just wanted a Race Car Party.

Lucas was the smart one and said, "why don't we have them ride in Tug, and a motorcycle, and 4-wheelers for the party?" OK. so that is what we did. We invited a few nursery friends over and each kid got a turn riding in the vehical of choice. Pam and Micah (Big THANK YOU to them) took kids on the 4-wheelers and Lucas drove them in Tug and then in his black bug. It was actually really fun and none of the kids did the other games that I had because they were all able to ride something each time. I was TOTALLY fine with that--(but I thought switching the name of "follow the leader" to "follow the pace car" was pretty creative on my end) :) We would switch after a couple minutes and start the engines again...

Then we had cake and ice cream. I am proud of my cake. I normally have great idea's for my cake and then try to make it happen about 20 minutes before the party starts (and do everything else) this year I planned a little better and did it the night before. It is pretty plain, but I am happy with it. If I had any of the pictures of my other cakes you would see why I liked this one so much...

and of course opened presents....

Pepper had a great time, and it was overall a good success! We were a little sad our race car was not able to make it (maybe Pepper will get a ride some other time), but totally understand moving cows from down from the mountains is more important! Hopefully they get them all before the snow comes! :)

Thank MOSTLY to wonderful Lucas who is SO CREATIVE!!

and to PEPPER for turning 3 and being such a fun and wonderful daughter!!

she is alive!

I am alive, I just haven't felt like blogging AT ALL lately.

Well things are changing in my world, for the good, and the bad.

I am prego--and along comes the pregnancy brain. It really is bad! Also this time around, I am SO TIRED! Really---one load of laundry adn one meal a day is draining me! I am really worried for when I am further along if this is what I have to look forward too. And I dry heave like mad. If you see me in the grocery store heaving--I will not throw up, I just do that. Infact Sedona told someone the other day---"that is what my mom when she has a baby in her tummy--she is ok."

Funny kids---one good thing about being tired--I am not making messes---which means a cleaner house. I am the mess maker in my family as many of you know. I am famous for starting projects and leaving them 1/3 of the way finished...but when you don't start projects you don't have to clean them up.

I also no longer an employeed...I know I worked very few hours a month, but I resigned and that is that. I may have fallen asleep at work anyway--so maybe it is better. :)

Lucas has been trucking on and off---I feel bad for the guy because when he is home he wants to go to sleep right away, but bedtime (actually between 9:30 and 11:30 at night) is when my brain turns on and I have 100 things to talk to him about. I am no longer offened when he falls asleep in the middle of a story...most of the time. So my pillow talk is a good time for me to get things out...but when he is gone I have no pillow talk time, so I blog---I have about 10 blogs started right now, but none of them ready to publish--maybe I am just taking my mess making and putting it on the computer where it doesn't make as big as a mess---ANYWAY---I am hoping that my energy will become more constant so I don't spend all my time cleaning when I feel well enough to do anything.
also I have posted most of my pictures on facebook--so you are out of luck if you only read the blog and do facebook too. :)
