And we're off.................

We are headed to Dallas tomorrow. Of course I didn't know that the NASCAR race was going to be in Dallas this weekend. We will probably be fighting a TON of traffic on our way. We may go ahead and get a hotel room by the airport, that way we won't have to fight the race traffic on Sunday morning.

I'll post pictures and all of that when we get back!! Thanks in advance to my parents, grandparents and Nana for watching my babies!! I will not have to worry about them while they are with you!!

Have a good next week! =)

Breanna had her Easter party on Friday at daycare. Here are some pictures of her there....

Noah and Breanna, Noah has been Breanna's best friend for most of her life. They have both been there from the beginning.

Breanna, Noah, and Kyle eating their treats.

Breanna likes chocolate a little bit, can you tell??

Breanna was covered in chocolate.....

The kids Easter baskets, on Breanna's new Dora hide-a-bed couch. She loves it!!

JJ's Easter Basket

The funniest thing happened. I have always said that Breanna is a very everything in it's place kind of girl. Well she pulled out all of the stuffed animals and lined them up on the couch. She then took all of the eggs and separated them all of the big eggs in JJ's basket and the small eggs in hers. One thing that you could not do is mix up the eggs. If you put one of the small eggs in with the big eggs you had better watch out she was right there ready to put them back in their respective baskets.

We went over to my parents house on Sunday evening to take the extra crib over there and get the kiddos clothes over there in preparation for our vacation. We had a delicious turkey dinner with sweet potatoes, a potato casserole, broccoli, and cranberries. We had a really good time. Except for the fact that JJ apparently had something in his stomach that did not agree with him. He threw up the last half of the time that we were there. Mom and Dad took time out and drove me home so that I could keep an eye on JJ. Mom stopped and got some Pedilyte for JJ. He is much better now. He didn't get sick again over the last 12 hours. He had some formula this morning and it stayed down.
Breanna had a GREAT time at her Easter Egg hunt at Daycare. I had Sara video tape it so I got to see her run around and get her eggs. A good time was had by all.
Hope you all had a good Easter.

So here are the pictures that I promised. I added a note about JJ that I had forgotten to talk about before.

Breanna's Easter shirt, she had to wear a long sleeve white shirt under it. Tooo cold.

The infamous Dora cups. The one she held onto for sooo long has the blue top.

Breanna's Easter Eggs.

JJ's Easter shirt, yes it says I love Mommy. Perfect bribing material for when he is about 16.

Ok here with this picture there is a bit of a story. JJ is now sitting in the high chair because I have begun to feed him some baby food. I know he is only 4.5 months old, but he is ready. Bottles are not keeping him full enough. I tried to give him cereal, but he doesn't really like it to much and I can't blame him. It tastes like cardboard. So he has begun getting Squash, he LOVES it he pretty much inhales the stuff. Next up over the weekend. Sweet Potatoes. Yuuummm.

Well it is Easter week. This means at Daycare Breanna is busy making all of her Easter crafts. Including dying some Easter Eggs. She made them yesterday. According to Sara Breanna wanted her eggs to stay in the dye and she wanted to just stir them. She did not like it much when her eggs came out of the dye. I’ll post a picture of the little eggs tomorrow. Friday they are having an Easter Egg hunt at Daycare. I am sending the video camera over so that we can see Breanna in action.

Jay has been in Texas all week so it has just been me and the babies at home. We do however have a new obsession…..ready for this…..Dora the Explorer. Breanna is fascinated by her. I didn’t even know that she liked Dora. Sat morning we were all up a little early (about 5:45) and we had gone into the living room. I was trying to find Breanna something to watch so she would be still while I got her some milk and JJ a bottle. While I was flipping through the channels Dora was on. Breanna immediately said Dora and got very excited. So we watched Dora, she know the map (ma) and then the backpack (ba-pah).

The best thing ever is On Demand TV. We have Cox and on their On Demand menu they have a Cable TV section, under that they have a kids section. Then you can pick Nickelodeon and then Nick Jr., and you know who had their shows on Demand there. That’s right Dora. So we watch the Dora Easter show or at least part of it most days. There is also Sesame Street, and most PBS shows on the same menu. It is a wonderful thing to be able to find a show that you know if going to make your kids happy, not just when it comes on the TV, but when it is when you, or the kids, want it.

More Dora news, so I have been collecting Pampers points. I got enough points to order the Buenos Noches Dora doll. So soon Breanna will have her new doll. We were at the grocery store last night (which in it self is a hassle with both kids.) Breanna saw a Dora sippycup. We had to have the sippycup, we had to have the sippy cup in the bath with us, we had to sleep with the Dora cup, when I woke her up this morning she was still holding on to the Dora cup. She took the cup to Daycare with her. As far as I can tell that cup is glued to her hand.

We are going to maybe do some kind of Easter Egg hunt this weekend. As it looks now we will be doing it inside. The low for Sunday is 28, so it might be a little cold for my babies on Easter morning. I’ll be sure to post pictures. Not knowing the Dora obsession that was to come I had already bought some Dora stuff for her for Easter. We’ll see if it gets “glued” to her hands as well!!
