It's FRIDAY!! Tomorrow is SATURDAY!!!

Happy Friday everyone! I don't know where the time has gone. Wasn't it just Monday?! We've had a busy week around here. Those boys are feeling MUCH better. Thank Goodness! They are much more pleasant to be around when they feel good. And, even better for Mom and Dad is that they have been sleeping all night for the past few nights. I'm convinced it's a trick. My kids don't sleep. They have to be up to something. 
I don't know if I had mentioned, but we have a crawler in our house. Yup, Mr. Shrek has been army crawling for almost two weeks now. He thinks he is a VERY. BIG. DEAL. I think I am in VERY. BIG. TROUBLE.

He decided he didn't like the toys I had laid out for him and his brother so he crawled over to the toy basket to get some more.  He's also been obsessed with the play mats lately. I haven't been putting them out for them to play on because Shrek keeps getting himself tangled up in them. See below....
He kept crawling over to them so I decided to set one out for them.






Donkey has no interest in crawling. He doesn't move very much at all. He can roll. I've seen him do it, but he prefers to just lay there. I guess he assumes I will get whatever he wants for him. That turkey.

Big Sister Diva has learned to pick the boys up and put them in her lap. This has been very exciting. We still have to remind her to be gentle! and that their heads are attached to their body. No matter how rough she is with her brothers these boys LOVE their sister. They light up every time she is near them. They do not mind her holding them.














I met some friends I hadn't seen in a while for lunch yesterday. 
I left early and stopped by the office where I used to work to see everyone. 
Carter and "RoRo" were color coordinated so naturally we had to have a picture :)
                 


















Diva has dance lessons on Wednesday nights. Afterwards Mr. Hubs took her to CherryBerry for a treat. It was very exciting!
Can you tell her leotard is on backwards?
He text me to say that she had Bubblegum ice cream with captain crunch, gummy bears, sour worms and pop rocks as her toppings. Ugh, makes my belly hurt. He then said she was going to make mine for me...um, Yay? Thank goodness she didn't!
It's gorgeous outside today. Finally...those gray days were getting me down. I know how seasonal effective disorder feels! The boys and I decided to go to the grocery store (Target) before nap time. It was Shrek's first time sitting in the cart like a big boy! He did not say a single word the entire time we were in the store. Bizarre....
I wore Donkey while we were there because he is 3 pounds lighter. I think that is funny now to say because when they were smaller I always wore Shrek because Donkey was so small. How things change in such a short amount of time! I'm not real sure why I look so serious in the picture. I must have been concentrating!
It's been a very busy and FUN week. The weekend is going to be just as busy. Mr. Hubs and I get to go out tomorrow night with a friend and act like real adults. No baby talk or diaper changes for hours!

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs. Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven. Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine!  She came over today to make some pasta. While s

Potty Mouth

You would think I would be referring to myself or Mr. Mayer. But, no. I'm talking about the precocious little girl that lives in this house. "I cleaned my room damn good." Wait. What? That was the sentence Diva told me a few weeks ago when I asked her if she had cleaned her room. I was in shock. Mr. Mayer was stifling a laugh. Diva was dead serious. A few days after that she came downstairs and told me to "Tell those damn boys to leave my damn toys alone." Apparently her brother's were messing with her Barbies. We have also had the occasional "damn it" when she drops something or spills something. It was super embarrassing when we were at Target and she dropped a toy in the toy department and said "damn it." Thankfully there was no one around to hear her. Diva's um...creative (?) vocabulary started as soon as she started speaking. She has always used big words, whether she knew what they meant or not. Mr. Mayer and I are totally

Strollergate

I have twins. In order for me to have any freedom or do anything ordinary I MUST have a stroller. A double stroller. Have you ever seen/pushed/owned a double stroller? It's like a land train. It's like being a bull in a china shop wherever you go. I started my journey with a Graco tandem stroller that the car seats fit into. This stroller was as long as I am tall. The boys hated it because they didn't like not being by each other. I started researching and asking around and was told by numerous sources that the best stroller was the Peg Perego Aria. I priced new ones and searched Craig's List and found one for a reasonable price. I was very excited . Now, the stroller is light weight enough for me to carry in one hand. The boys were happy with it because they could see/touch/steal toys and snack from each other. Very important to them. However....the canopy barely covers the boys heads. Not good with the Oklahoma weather. And see those double wheels on the front. Thos
