Why, why, why!?!?

WHY does this child of mine INSIST on coloring everything except for what he is suppose to?
Noah never did this, he always colored on paper or whatever I gave him. He never once colored on a wall or his clothes or the table. Eli on the other hand, colors on whatever he think needs some sprucing up I guess. No matter how mad I get and no matter how many time outs he gets, he just could care less what I have to say. This has been an ongoing battle for a while now, I just am SOOOOO over it. He is ruining everything! When ever I get stuff out for them to color with at the table, I guess he secretly stashes some crayons and markers away everytime because I dont know where he finds all this stuff. Here are a few examples of some of the destruction that has happened in the last little while.

Chalk on the coffee table ( not a big deal, washed right off)

Pen on the back of the barstool ( i have tried everything to get this pen off the chair, it's ruined)

Peramant Marker on the wall ( this I have to paint over)

Marker on the heat vent. ( Doesnt come off, I have to replace it)

crayon on the door ( have not tried to clean it yet)

Crayon ALL over the slide attached to Noahs bed. (This luckily came off)

Crayon on his bedroom wall (have not cleaned this one up yet, (hopefully a magic eraser will work!)

Pen on Kenta's soccer ball
That is not all, he has also colored and ruined bed sheets, clothes, blankets, toys, oh yes and we cant forget himself, he is alwyays coloring on himself.

Eli is ALWAYS keeping me on my toes. I guess we will just say he has a "Free Spirit" =)

But likeI said I am SO VERY done with this destructive phase he is going threw.

Happy V-day to me

Okay its's official my craftiness has started to rub off on my husband. He made this for me for Valentines Day! It is a little coupon heart thingy. On one side of the key it says " A key" and on the other side it says "to my heart". How cute and CORNY is he! =) This is seriously one of the best V-day gifts he has ever given me! These are very valuable coupons. This is the list of coupons I get to use =)
1. 2:00 a:m feeding with baby
2. 5:00 a:m feeding with baby......
3. sleep in as long as I want......I should use 1,2&3 all in the same day!
4. back massage (2o min.)
5. full body massage ( up to 30 min.).....notice he had to make a time limit on #4 & 5 or it would go on for hours =)
6. poopy diaper change.....he does this anyway so I'll have to save it for a real good one. Gross, I know.
7. Whatever you want hunny!...he definately should have been more specific, this could get expensive =)

Obviously Kenta knows me pretty well. Some of my very FAVORITE things in life are sleep and massage's!! And I don't get much of either of those these days. So THANK YOU Kenta for putting so much thought and effort in to this gift. This really is the best, I love you!

......A little side note for Ben G. I told kenta I was going to post this and he told me not to, in fear that you would make fun of him, so BE NICE!! .....You know you wish you were cool like him =)

February Card Club

So we just switched things up in card club this month. I will no longer be doing club at my house every month and I won't be coming up with the projects every month. It was just gonna be to much for me, and I want to simplify my life as much as possible. I love being in a card club and so do all the other girls. So to make things more interesting and fun we are going to take turns being the hostess. Once a month we will meet at the hostess house and they will be in charge of coming up with the "make and take" we do. Then we will of course swap the cards we brought. Some months we are even go to do a theme. Next month everyone will be doing Thank You cards. I think it will be a lot of fun and a little less stress on me =)..
We had quite a few new people join us for February's club, and if anyone else feels like being crafty and wants to jump in on this just let me know! I was the host for february's club, just to get things jump started again.
This is the "make and take" I came up with for everyone to do. A little Valentines card & envelope.

Here is everyone's super CUTE cards. All these girls are so talented!

Kim R.




Sherry (her very first card!)

Raquel (also her very first card!)


Since this is a crafty post, I wanted to show these valentine's Noah and I made for his little preschool class. Love suckers (there are real suckers inside) =) They were so fun to make with him.

My cutie patootie

Kai is 2 months old already! I seriously can't believe how fast these last 8 weeks have flown by.(Why doesn't pregnancy go by that fast!) He had his 2 month doctor appointment today. He got his first shots which of course was NO fun. He screamed louder than I have ever heard him scream before and when he was done screaming he looked up at me with this traumatized look on his face like what the heck did you just do to me. =( It was so sad. The good news is he weighs 10 lbs. 13 oz. and 22 inches long. So he is growing good =)..He still is waking up twice a night. So I am a very tired momma. He is starting to smile and coo, which is the cutest thing ever. He really LOVES the mobile in his crib, he gets so happy every time we turn it on. He also loves his bath time, and he usually cries when we take him out. Other than that he is such a good baby. His brothers are always wanting to help with him(sometimes to much!)
3 boys is so fun .... I guess we are pretty lucky =)

Snow + Hill = Sledding Fun!

We took the boys sledding for their very first time a few weeks ago, and we all had so much fun! We took Kai to grandma's and got mollie to come along. It sure was cold, but it was worth it to suck it up for an hour. Noah couldn't get enough and Eli went down a few times but he had more fun just playing in the snow.

So everday after that Noah was begging to go sledding again, so Kenta came up with a great plan to make a fun sledding slope in our backyard. We have just enough of a slope to go sledding down. Kenta added a few ramps to make it more exciting =)..It was pretty cool! Noah and Eli have been out there playing everyday since then. That was until the snow started to melt it all down 2 days ago. Needless to say the boys are a bit dissapointed, but it was fun while it lasted. =)
