It was so much fun to see posts yesterday !!!Kiss   Heather, we went with the Odyessy -- I liked how it drove vs. the Sienna....  but it all has to do with big picture and how long you see yourself in that car.  We've had ours for 6 1/2 years and I only see maybe one more year or so in it before we change to something else.  It's AWESOME with small kids....  strollers, carseats lots of room... OH, I love my TOASTER  (that's what I call all mini's... as they look liketoasters)...  but then there also comes that time when you don't want the MINIMOM persona (kwim?).   We also have a Honda Pilot for DH, so that keeps him happy.... but really, he doesn't care.

Yesterday was such a LONG day !!  I have a lot of balls up in the air.... tried to tire the kids out at the park and a long walk to the fruit stand-- but nope. They were in bed by 7:15pm-- which was awesome so I could watch my Dowton Abbey.  GRRRRRrrrr...  shocking...  not happy---  that's all I'll say (who else is hooked?)  I have only started watching it this season (3).. so, I'll have to find someone to lend me the first two to get me thru....  I have no idea when the next season starts.

Who is watching DUCK DYNASTY??? on A&E  http://www.aetv.com/duck-dynasty/?mkwid=s5q4FUrMV_pcrid_18283442216_pkw_duck%20dynasty_pmt_b&utm_source=google_tune&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=duck%20dynasty&utm_campaign=G_Duck+Dynasty+Season+3&paidlink=1&cmpid=PaidSearch_google_tune_G_Duck+Dynasty+Season+3_duck%20dynasty

This is actually a GREAT family show !!!  Amazing message at the end of each show-- I love it !!   Here's some "life lessons" from my IMOM:

Jen, I'm so glad to hear that you and DH are doing a bit better.....!!!!!!

Tracie-- some relief today with the kids going back to school !

Today, I have to finish the paperwork for refinancing... after much discussion, we are going to... but WHAT A PAIN.    BUT my aunt got us this little personal scanner for Christmas (which was in the box until this morning)--  it looks like a flat iron and it's AMAZING !!!  I've been a scanning fool !!!  The brand is a VuPoint "Magic Wand III" plantinum.  (online @ $70).    I plan to scan some of Ava's art projects, too !!   Love it !!

Got in- only after 2 tries:)

Wenz- a trip to the park-sounds wonderful. We are having terrible weather. It was negative 25 windshield last night, think it still is, it is awful   :(  This winter has been both snowy & freezing, it is usually 1 or the other, getting OLD!!! Never seen either show-will have to check them out. We are refinancing too-such a pain.

Waterpark was awesome, always so fun. Kids all at school, even Joey for the next 2 hours, so quiet here!

Last week of gymnastics for Nola until summer session, I have to admit I am looking forward to the break.

Anyone read Kelle Hampton's blog? That baby boy is giving me serious baby fever-ahhhhh!

Heather-I would go with the SUV so I hope you win;)  MUCH better in the snow.

Morning! It did take me 4 times to log in today but I was like "damn it! let me post!!!" and kept at it lol ;) I'm still having the worst insomnia... lat night I was literally tossing and turning in bed from 10 until 1 am trying to fall asleep. and that was after taking some Tylenol pm! Wenz, that scanner sounds awesome! I digitalize all if the kids' artwork and only save the things I frame. Otherwise i'd have piles of art projects all over! I'm planning on watching abbey when I'm done with some other shows I'm catching up on (Netflix has abbey available online I think if you want to watch the first seasons) Tracie, yikes I would go nuts with all that cold, I'm such a wimp! I complain when its below 50 for too long here! I follow Kelle on Instagram and yes, her baby is to die for!! I want another little boy so bad! (Well not really but my heart does!)

Wenz going to the park sounds wonderful. Good luck refinancing. It really is a pain in the butt. Having a scanner really does help.

Tracie this cold does stink. I am so sick of having to bundle up all the time. My sandles are calling my name.

Jen not sleeping is the worest. Hope you can get some rest tonight.

We had a play date this morning which was a lot of fun. The kids spent most of their time chasing each other. The one who was hosting was having some problems sharing her toys but what do you expect from a 2 year old. I have my 24 week appointment today. Looking forward to hearing the heartbeat as always. I'm guessing next appointment I'll have to do the glucose test. So not looking forward to that.

I have not watched either show. I plan on watching Dowtown when I finish some other shows.
