Jerry and Leanne

Couple week-ends ago we went to visit Jerry and Leanne. The kids had a blast and so did their parents. Thanks for everything Jerry and Leanne!

My handsome little boy.
Kids watching daddy and Jerry load the tractor.

The boys loved the sand box.

All Addy wanted to do was swing.
To little boys this was pure joy.


This was the first sliver of nice weather after a week of no sun and rain. The kids didn't waste anytime finding all the mud holes.

Boys are gross!

Somebody put something on the wall. That something comes out of ones nose and in my opinion should never be seen. Most of all not displayed on my walls for everyone to see.
Well Axel noticed it and said to daddy, "help me...I can't get it off!"

Cutie Pie all smiles.

Axel blowing kisses and Addy being cute.

The boys were dirt bike ridding and Addy didn't want to miss out on the fun so she found this helmet. Way to big for her.

The kids love to ride the dirt bike at Nanny and Papa's, they scream bloody murder when it's time to be done.

Tiff playing cowgirl with Addy. She loved to gallop and yell, "Yee haw!"

The Adventure of Potty Training

Axel my first born went a whole day with no accidents today. I was one of those mom's that said I will never tried to bribe my children. Well he turned 3 and was still quite content to wear his diaper, actually way to comfortable with the whole process. He would come to me and say I'm wet mama I need a new diaper. Then grab a pillow and get all comfy. Next he would inform me that I needed to warm up the wipes. Which I refused to do because I kind of wanted him to be uncomfortable with the whole thing so that we could get this whole potty training rolling. Everyday I'd ask do you want to wear your big boy pants and he would refuse.
So began the bribing. He wanted a treat and I would say well if you use the potty you'll get one. For a while he refused and went about his business...then one day it just seemed to click. He wanted a piece of chocolate and I said no it's almost time for supper, no snacking. He pouted and went back to playing then a few minutes later he returned with a little smirk and said, "I have to go potty." I was a little skeptical and say ok, if you need help let me know." Then he said, "if I go potty I get a treat?" Well I couldn't go back on my word so I said yes.

Being the smart mom that I am(ha ha) I soon caught on to his ways and told him he had to show me that he went before he could get the treat. Well over the next few days there has been many treats given out.

This morning Kent woke up at 6:30 to mister Axel helping himself to the treats. He informed Axel that it was still early and he needed to go back to bed for a bit, which he did. Then later in the morning Kent realized that Axel wasn't wearing a diaper. He had woken up, went to the bathroom, put his underwear on and then helped himself to the treats.

Oh and of course Addy wants in on the action so she insists on using the potty (she has not successfully went on the potty yet but knows all the steps) to get her treat.

To all you potty training pros: I accept any advice, tips and lovely stories.

I'm an Auntie!!

Lane and Alesha's adorable little girl Annika. Born April 30th.
I told Axel that he has a new baby cousin and he looked at me kind of confused and say no I don't. So again I say yes you have a new baby cousin!! He comes over to me angry this time lifts up his shirt to show me his belly and says mom SEE I don't have a baby cousin! I guess we have a little more explaining to do.
Congratulations Lane and Alesha...can't wait to meet her!!
