Its the peanut butter in the chocolate Ice Cream that works SO well for your skin! Posted by Hello

I need a vacation!

I know things are Never easy before you go on vacation but this week has been peticularly stressful. First of course is having a two year old. Wow. He learned to many things this week.
He has mastered the baby locks on the cabinets (which will be coming down this weekend). What is the point of me having to push down the lock if he has figured out that pulling them open hard enough they will open.
Next was running. If he takes off running, then throws the object I am trying to get from him, he thinks he won't be in trouble?????
Next was dancing, this I must say was quite adorable. He was copying his brother Reece and break dancing.
Then there was the static shock that his brothers kept trying to do to each other.

The worst of his new found freedoms was in the Kitchen. He now can open the side by side refidgerator. He loves to bring out frozen food and give them to us. He has even figured out how fun it is to change foods to the freezer and to the fridge. Not to Mention other items. Thursday night my husband used our cell phone which is our home phone and thought he had left it in his car. We could not find it any where. We started thinking that we had someone take it out of his car while he worked overnight. This morning, guess where we found it.
Yep, it was in the freezer.
Zeb is now baby gated out of the kitchen. I still don't know how or where he got it and my husband can't remember how it got in the house.
But if you have ever worked nights it is hard to function during normal people hours so I will give him that.
Then the next issue this week was Brock. He was learing long division and did not understand it at all. We worked on it for 2 hours for 2 days. He was crying and very much lacking interest.
I am sure fractions will be a JOY!.

Fun in the Sun

Coming up fast is this time we live for .... winter vacation.
Every year we like to fly somewhere I vacation with the kids. This will be the last year for a while to save money for a new house. So we decided to make it Orlando Florida.
We fly out of Green Bay in 11 days. This will be the first flight for Zeb our 2 yr old. I found out last year that if you 'check in' for your flight on line you can get much better seats easier. So, I will be doing that for sure! My son Brock had be obsessing about his ears popping, which his teachers said was getting in the way at school. I don't know why he was doing that he has been on a plane last year.... he was fine. Anyway, I will be busy trying to find what I did with the summer clothes for all the boys. So I had them make lists of how many shorts, shirts, underware, etc. My oldest, who is almost 10, wrote out his with pictures of a shirt, shorts, pants and that type of thing with the number he would need next to it. Really he can spell. I know he can. I think he was afraid that if he would spell out those words he would forget his spelling words that he had just studied.

A Hunting They Will Go

Every year when the snow comes and Christmas excitement has gone is the official Rabbit hunting season here in Wisconsin. My oldest peticularly loves this time since he gets to hunt with Dad and not have to sit still. Duner says he likes it since we don't have a dog to get the rabbits moving he has a 9 and 7 year old to run around and scare up the rabbits.
Yesterday was the first time this year they got to go. They got a rabbit. They like to pet it. Duner decided to put down the bunny and see if he could find any more. Reece always get tired and goes back to the car early. This year as they were returning to car, they noticed a man talking to Reece who was, as it turned out, trying to find out if Duner had a hunting license and if he had gotten anything. Later he learned that Reece was scared when the man came and was crouched down hiding in the car. Finally the man flashed his badge and then Reece was telling him about how they shoot the bunny in the butt. I don't know if he believed Reece or not. He had left by the time they got there. Which kind of makes me curious if it really was a game warden or not. But all is well .

Man they grow up fast....

I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing. The other day I was craving something salty and crunchy, so I popped open a tiny bag of chips.
My Son Reece came up to me and said
"Those aren't healthy for you" and took them away! When he came back he brought me a Banana and said
"eat this it is better for you."
Huh???? When did he grow up? He is only 7.
