99 Cent Club

I found out that Sonic has drinks for 99 cents before 10am...maybe I have been a few times.

Well, this morning I went and I missed my 10 o'clock window.  I paid full price for my Rt44...but as I was giving the nice girl my money she told me,
"Because you are here so much, next time tell them you are a member of the 99 cent club and they will give you your drink for 99 cents, even if it is after 10."

I was really embarrassed, but so excited all at the same time.

Break a Leg

Dustin, Cory and I surprised my mom...can you tell?!?
Plane ticket...$400,

Car rental...$20,
 Locking the keys in the rented car and calling the locksmith...$55,
 Seeing my mom almost have a heart-attack, hyperventilate, and bawl her eyes out...PRICELESS!!!
 I did her stage make-up for her, fun.
 Cute and talented cast of the show....(Oklahoma by the way)
 We really missed Brian, but it was fun to have a moment with my brothers.
 The Kilpatricks came too.  It was very fun to catch up with them.
 The 3 hour time difference from WA to WA DC was a killer for poor Dustin!
And I also was able to see my cute cousin Heather and her family. 

It was a very short weekend with a lot of traveling time, but I had so much fun!  Love you mom!

Oh, the IRONY!!!

 The kids worked really hard this last Saturday cleaning the house with me.  As a treat, the neighbor said we could swim in their pool while they were out of town for the weekend, so I took the kids over.  Addison looked at me in my swimsuit and said, "Mom, you are the only one in our family with fat legs."
I'll have you know, little miss 9 pounds 5 ounces, that you are the reason for every stretch mark on my "fat legs," and you once had little chubby fat legs too. :)

Oh, the mind of a 5 year old.

The gang

 This is the real us...

 I love that Kasidee will still let me get away with matching dresses.  She isn't in the I'm-too-cool stage yet, thankfully!
 I think this picture describes each one of our kids to a tea:  Sweet Kas, little miss attitude Bailey, then we have our little follower who is trying so hard to be just like her older sisters, Addison (who decided she liked the name Maddie better than her own so she signs school papers with that name now), and I'm way too cool for this now mom and I hate my new clothes because they are too big and don't fit right Parker.

Here are their individuals:
 Kasidee (8 years old)
 Addison (5 years old)
 Bailey (3 years old)
 Reilynn (2 years old)
 Parker (8 years old)
That's the gang.

Make Up...

 This is why I have been MIA lately...
 They take baseball very seriously in our city!  A practice (sometimes 2), batting practice, and a game every week.
 We are going to be starting up on 2 games a week pretty soon too.
 I will say that the sport is growing on me.  At first, let's just be honest...
 But watching Parker step up to the plate and make contact with the ball, or catch a ball fielding, is pretty awesome!  I'm glad he is having fun!
 Reilynn is at a fun age this year for Easter.  She has quickly put 2 and 2 together...
 These little plastic eggs are awesome!  They always have something yummy in them!  Get as many as you can in your bucket!!
 Bailey is already an old pro.
 Here is the primary Easter Egg Hunt.
 And then we went to the community Easter Eggstravaganza today.
 Complete with bounce houses,
 face and hand painting,

 sidewalk chalk,
 a good old-fashioned egg toss,
And lots of candy! 

Hope you all have a very Happy Easter!  I can't wait for the Easter bunny to bring the new Sunday dresses and clothes tomorrow...cute cute cute!
