post 24 - Valerie turns 4

since we had her party already, we just let her pick a place to eat out tonight. She picked incred pizza, but we ran into time issues (icred was closing early on sundays) and ended up at McDonalds. She was still very happy, and enjoyed everyone telling her happy birthday and all the cards she got in the mail too.

19 on the 19th

number 19, the girls made cupcakes with their "cup cake maker". The icing device is very hard to work with, and it all tastes like poo. The girls think the opposite, and had a blast making and eating these.

day 18 - tick tock

Paul took this picture I thought it was kinda funny. He has been working on the rims for days, and he had the timer so he could check the paint. Darth Vader came from a friend of his, as a Christmas gift.

post 15 - Veronica's crazy dot

Entry 15 - Sometimes you only have mere seconds to turn on and snap a pic before they change their minds about having their picture taken… and then hope that is captures everything you want to remember and share..

Veronica took a stamper and stamped her forehead, I also found an old temp tattoo and she wanted to wear that too. We went to Target again, and she got a few stares, lol. She kept saying “that girl/boy is looking at my tattoo”
lol , she gets stares alot, she always has fun dressing herself, and I find it amusing myself as I see her walk out in her "get up" each day

entry 14 – Houston we have a mouse!

I promised Veronica a pet mouse for her birthday. We were waiting to see what deals we could find on a new or used "home" on craigslist as of course who isnt still hurting from the holidays. We were very lucky and found a generous guy on craigslist who gave us a "home" for the mouse for free, we just needed the essentials for the inside, like bedding, food etc. We found out Paul was off so we got to go out and get the new mouse since Paul wanted to be there when she bought the new pet.We went out to target to spend the girl’s birthday gift card from pepaw Sauer. Veronica got supplies for the mouse she wanted, and Valerie got a dress up dress, and they both got new piggy banks. Of course one had to stop and go potty in the middle of the trip, but I still count my blessing for them both being potty trained.

entry 13 - farewell Rick

Corey has been great at adding a live "soundtrack" to our lives, at random begins singing and strumming whatever comes to mind. lol!

well today is Rick and the boy’s last day. We won’t see them again till summer, hopefully not longer than that. We had a nice dinner at Yucatan, a tex mex restaurant, and had our hugs said good night and goodbye.

entry 12 - Park Day, Fire night

Rick and I took the little ones to the park today. We had a picnic lunch, which was pretty yummy, and then the kids played for about 3 hours straight. Rick and I chit chatted, hollered at the kids a few times, and got to swing and have some laughs ourselves.
even with the kids playing full force, they still had plenty of energy when we left, that was pretty surprising. Rick got fire wood, and then the kids got back to playing at mama gino's outside on the playset.
Kaley and I started the fire, the kids still playing around the yard, later the kids veged out to the TV while the big kids had a great time by the fire! and one "special" big kid spent some time by the toilet. lol, he almost had a face - to - face with it, he luckily didn't get that far.

entry 11 - alot of time at "the Chierighino's" aka my mom's or Mama Gino's

Spending alot of time at my mom's with everyone is really nice. we didn't do much this day, it was still fun, and Veronica somehow managed to get into some trouble anyway.
My mom left up the Christmas tree so it would be up when the family was all together for the "Chierighino Christmas". It is kinda funny seeing a christmas tree this far into January

the girls had a great party, not as many showed up because of the cold, but they didn't notice and still had a blast! The cake pops were a hit with everyone, the pizza was yummy, almost not enough, I would have liked left overs, but cant win every time.
