Day 14 Saturday: Our family is famous for board games like monopoly. This took us all day long.
We are still not done.
Day 15 Sunday: Justin and I started a mommy and me book for the summer. It's a log of what we have done this summer. We then compare it to last year to see what new things we have learned. It's a lot of fun. Justin and I have done this for nine years.
Day 16 Monday: Today when my little man goes to sleep Justin and I are going to work on our secret family recipe book. This will include grandpa chili and grandma lasagna. It will be Yummy.
Today I had to have a cup of coffee to try out my homemade vanilla coffee creamer. In a mason jar add 2 teaspoons of vanilla,14 oz of skim milk and one 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk. Once in the jar put the lid on and shake what your momma gave ya but don't hurt yourself. ( I love that saying lol) The next step is to add it to your cup of delicious coffee. Enjoy my reader's!

I had this great idea to make some yummy ice cream since I didn't want to go to the store. I took out four frozen bananas cut them in half. I added a touch of honey not to much. Just a little bit of milk to make it a little fluffy in my ninja. Bam we have homemade banana ice cream. I'm awesome! The kids and hubby loved it. I do have to give my hubby some credit for the thought of a hit of vanilla. Which made it of course a little more yummy.

1/2 cup of salt
1/2 cup of flour
a bowl to mix in
add water to make almost like a play dough. If your finger's get all messy just add some more flour to your hands. Then make it into a ball push down and make your imprint. Bake it for 3 hours at 200 degrees. I'm thinking about just painting the hand prints so they can stand out. I also wrote my boys name and year on them to before I bake. Give it a try and tell me what you think?

Day One of P90X and I think the guy was going to kill me this morning. I was soaked in sweat from head to toe it's another step to my goal of fitness. I really miss my bff Amanda going to Fitness together. That was fun catching up on our crazy Gh soap, taking about how crazy some women are and complaining about working out. I feel great today totally refresh and energized for my day. I have so much to be thankful for. The one person who keeps me going is my wonderful hubby. If it wasn't for him I think I would have just stayed with my yoga. I love being fit it's better for my mind,body and soul. I have always been able to run around with the boys. Now I can tell myself it's okay to eat a cookie every now and then for my cheat day. I'm really happy that I have been back into my walking routine like before. Since last Monday I have lost three pounds. I'm excited now that I have P90X to add to my workout. I don't know if I'm going to post before and after like on the commercials. Then again I think I might I have a huge ego. (laughing) It's fun to compete with my hubby pound for pound baby.
Here are the boys with a giant giraffe that daddy almost broke. Below is a Dino all out of Lego's it's insane what some people can do.

I love to hear my children laugh. The sound's of little feet as they run across the kitchen floor is priceless. Yesterday we played hide and seek almost all day. We also took turns making funny faces at each other.
To end our night we watch Alf which is the greatest show ever made.

I turned on the news like I always do in the morning with my cup of coffee to hear this disturbing news. A man kicked in the back door of a Amc theater and open fire on everyone watching the new "Batman" movie. 15 people are dead and 50 are wounded. Justin was happy today because Steve and I always take him to see a movie on opening day. Batman is one of his favorites. The "Dark Knight"was not a kid movie after all but we covered his eyes. What is this world coming to? Where is GOD? I don't understand why he let's this happen. This morning on Facebook people are blaming the movie. I think people take movies and music to serious. All humans have a choice to do something. Then you have the ones who are mentality unstable who need a lot of help from god or locked up where they can't hurt anyone. I think people get off to easy send this guy to the chair. No jail time to waste tax dollars to feed him,clothed him and shelter him. Fry him plain and simple! What else do you need? I'm sick to my stomach. I found myself in tears this morning. I glance over at my oldest who was also in tears. All I could do was hug him. I do my very best to keep him and his brother safe. I don't know how I can go watch this movie now and not think of the ones who lost the most important thing"Life".

My kids and I do a lot of things together like play with Lego's. Today was one of those days. I have found that being apart of 30 mintues of playing for 30 days with the kids is a whole lot of fun. I have created a list of 100 things we can do this summer for all of us. I get a kick out of checking things off. I don't know why but its fun mostly because we can say we did that with pride.

If you try to play twister with a one year old its a lot of fun. Justin and I really put it to the test tonight. I love family night. After laughing till our belly hurt it was time to play guess who. Christopher knocked it off the table. He then ran off with our cards. He ate bob and another one so I gave him some chips and salsa we were then all good to get on with the game. I hate that one of the questions you have to ask is if they are black or white. It just seems wrong to me. I guess that is just me another post for another time.

I enjoy the evening with my children like playing with play dough. Steve and I had a blast playing make believe chef with Justin. Steve had to one up my cup cake that's fine. I see how it is. I can't make the fake ones but I sure can make awesome real ones. I sell out of them that's if Steve and the boys don't eat them all before the bake sale. I also played basketball with my little man today and Dino's with Christopher. Times like these will pass as my kids get older. I want to remember them forever. I can't pass up these moments in life.http://lifeisonlywhatyoumakeit.blogspot.com/2012/07/30-0n-30.html

I think I need to get a king size bed. I'm going on a mission today to look for a bed. I would really like to see if Christopher will sleep in his bed for a change but I don't think that will happen for long in his own room. I think he has slept in his bed only because it's right next to mind. If he is not in my arms I can't sleep. It's too weird I was the same way with Justin until he was five. Steve insisted on buying Christopher a crib which he took only naps in. The crib now sits in Christopher closet. I have been looking for a dinosaurs bed for him no luck yet. I see today will be a challenge. Wish me luck I need it.
I'm up early today to make moon sand. I love looking on the web for new inspiring idea's to share with my children. I found a way to make homemade moon sand. It's real easy first start off with one cup of flour and add baby oil till you get the texture of sand. From there all you do is add flour and baby oil to make as much or as little as you want. The plus side to this is soft hands. It's messy so you may want to do this outside. Justin was a huge fan of moon sand when it first came out. Like the great parents Steve and I are we went out and got him all the colors the store had. Steve went a little over board and spent over $100 dollars on moon sand. I could have killed him but he was just being the best dad there is. They spent all night playing with it and slept in the next day all day. Here is a little video for you all. Have fun we did.

Happy Birthday my little man. I want you to know you have made me a better person since you came into my life. Mommy, Daddy and Christopher adore you so much. I hope you like your trip to Lego Land. I can't belive you are nine today nine. The time really goes by fast. I'm very proud to be called your mother. You are the most amazing person I have ever met. You don't have a mean bone in your body. You always give second chances to anyone. I love how you can make friends anywhere. You are the best big brother Christopher can have. You two do everything together even when you would rather close your bedroom door. Instead you sit on the floor in his room to play cars. You don't complain about anything you just go with it. I hope you have fun today can't wait for Lego Land. We love you!

I know work,school and everything else that comes with being a parent is hard. Put yourself to the test for a whole month see what you can do. Please write back I would love to have feed back on your 30 days.
Today the kids and I are digging for dinosaurs. I took a container filled with water and added the kids toy dinosaurs. I later put it in the frezzer overnight. Today we dig it out. I thought this would be a lot of fun in the Florida heat to stay cool.
