Weekly Happenings

13 days until its time for school and to start getting back up early! Blah...not looking forward to that, kinda looking forward to school. However, the summer of stress now isn't too bad. Its like 2 months later, we finally fell into a groove of sleeping in, getting along and so on.

Last week was quite the week. Upon picking up Dumpling we went to visit there aunt and uncle for a little bit. E-Man stayed over for a fews days. So it was just Dumpling and I until E-man returned tuesday, with one of his older cousins. Thursday we packed up in the car and headed to a water park. I have to tell ya, Dumpling if she would just not get stiff when floating, would be swimming all over. She feels comfortable in the water. She will hold onto me and gladly float up and start kicking. E-Man stiffens up, though he is somewhat comfortable. He has mastered going under water. He thinks that is just so cool. Though, no opening of eyes yet.

Then Friday, E-Man left for Nana and Papa's for his weekend. He went fishing! Pictures will be below. And he returned home with the wii game he has been dieing to get his hands on. Star Wars the Force Unleashed. I am starting to get Star Wars figured out.

This weekend his his birthday party! Whoooo! Its going to be at chuck e cheese and its going to be FUN!

I caught a FISH!

This one was the biggest and he needed a net!

the end result! 8 fish total. The biggest was caught by Ethan!

Have a great week!

One of the kids older cousins came for a visit for a few days. So, he asked me a question and wondered what your answers would be.

If you had the choice would you, take a million dollars, go to college, or get a job?

So, what would it be?

Hmmm....great question. All have benefits right? How about I take the million, enjoy it then maybe pay outright for college and then get a job, maybe?

So, what would you do?

Weekly Happenings

Wow, this was a fast week. It was a great week though. Heck, i don't really remember what we did, it went so fast. Either way, the weekend was nice. It was just E-man and us. Dumpling spent the weekend with Nana and Papa.

Friday night E-man and I had a date since Hubby gets off late on Fridays. We went to mexican. The kid danced to the spanish music and laughed. It was quite entertaining. After stuffing our faces with delicious food, he wanted to go to the bookstore. So, we headed there and he got a new Star Wars book. That kid reads great, i am telling ya. I am so impressed. To look at how much he has grown in a year and just how smart he is. Its crazy.

Yesterday, hubby was here. I left to go surprise Dumpling at Babyland with my parents. She had a blast and was so excited that not only did she get to see babies born out of cabbage patches, that mommy was there too. The she left with Nana and Papa and i came home to the boys playing nothing else, but Lego Star Wars on the Wii. **eyes rolling**.

So, this morning after daddy left for work, E-man and I have been bums. Him watching cartoons/lego stars wars (AGAIN) and me enjoying a book and some coffee. After picking up Dumpling, we are going to head to visit my nephew. I haven't seen his shinning face in awhile. E-man actually wants to see him too, SHOCKER! He has had nothing to do with either new nephew. He secretly likes them, but shhhh, don't tell anyone!

Happy Weekend to all!

Where did the Wolfe's go????

Still here, still blogging, just been concentrating on my book blog and kinda slacked here. However, i am having the luck i wanted. Publishers are contacting me for reviews....FREE BOOKS!  I reviewed one last week for an upcoming author and that was just cool!

What have we been doing? TRYING TO STAY COOL! We haven't done as much fun stuff this summer as i had hoped. We can't even go outside for 5 minutes during the day. Then by the time we can in the evening, the bugs are out ready to eat us. Blah! So, we have been inside. E-man has made quite the progress on his wii games! There are some days, there isn't much else he does.  We do take the time to do some school work. Which is rounding the corner! YAY! August 9th he will start 1st grade. We are also preparing for his birthday party. What is the theme? None other then STARWARS! I am lost. No clue. Anyone know if there might be a star wars for dummies book out there?  I just don't get it.

I took some great pictures the other day. I gotta get them on here. The kids faces are priceless. I just switched computers, so i don't have all my stuff over here yet. My laptop was getting ready to say its final fair well. So now  i am onto my hubbys old laptop.

So yup, we are still here. This week we have an extra kiddo. I thought it would be nice for E-man to have a friend for a few days. So, now i have two star war nerds. And Dumpling is busy with baby dolls. She currently has several children. One baby is headed to the doctors right now and i was just scolded for leaving the bottle in the one i am babysitting's mouth for too long. Oy! Dumpling starts school Aug 16. She will go Mon-Wed from 8:00am-11:30am. I am looking forward to two mornings to myself and one morning with just the hubby.

That's all for now.....will post some pics soon. I am off to babysitting duty. Baby Starsong needs a diaper changing :o)

Letter of Intent

Hey! I have a giveaway going on. Click HERE to enter :o)


Its Friday and it means its time for some letters. Click the picture above to visit Julie over at Foursons and link up your letters!

Dear Kids,
Are you bipolar? For 3 days i wanted to literally run away! I wanted to leave this house screaming and never look back. You mouthed off, you fought with me and each other. You had crazy temper tantrums. You were just evil little creatures. Then for 2 days, you were completely different. You played with one another like you had not seen one another in  years. You laughed, you shared, you compromised, you listened. It was amazing and i loved it. I could actually have fun with you. And my stress level went way down and being a stay at home mama was fun again. TODAY.....we seem to be in the middle. We have been up an hour with one small fight, one compromise, one small tantrum that you calmed down quickly too. Maybe i just need more coffee! Either way.........39 days until school for E-man and add 7 to that for Dumpling to start her 3 year morning program 3 days. This mama is ready!



Dear BFF girls friends!

Eclipse tonight! Woooooo hoooo!!! I am SOOOOOOOO ready!!! Girl time and no kids,  wow is this week just getting better and better!

the mama who is so ready to break out!
