Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

Wow! What a weekend. It was full. Friday was a busy day in general. I took Shrek in for an eval on his feet. Poor dude is pigeon toed like his Mama. Unfortunately he drags one of his feet while his toes are pointing at his other leg. He and his brother Donkey are going to have to wear some elastics on their feet to turn them out. Some smart info that the specialist shared with me. Being pigeon toed and knock kneed like that can lead to arthritis and other foot problems. Wow! Good to know now that I'm 30 and have those problems. *Sigh* I'm assuming my mother's solution of making me wear my shoes on the wrong feet when I was little did not work.
Friday the Diva learned about Doctor's and made her own doctor bag. She spent an hour taking care of Mr. Mayer and I and bandaging us up.


After Mr. Mayer and I were mended Nana Karen and Papa Brad came over to watch Shrek and Donkey and Mr. Mayer and I took Diva to the Tulsa State Fair.

That is always an adventure. We met some friends there. We all ran our legs off. I let Diva eat a very healthy dinner....followed by cake balls and fried potatoes. I rock. The people watching at the fair is entertainment alone.

The next morning we were up and at em' again. We drove to Grove and FINALLY got around to taking the dudes 1 year pictures. I'm only a month late. Not bad in my book. It was a gorgeous day. One of my best friends lives there and was gracious enough to let us come out to her house and take some pics as well. We had a great time with the Lane's and their precious little Addie. Both of the dudes are smitten with Ms. Addie and liked to pull her hair. It was another long day.
By Sunday we were all grumpy. It was definitely a day of rest. We didn't do much of anything yesterday. Just hung out around the house. Shrek has learned how to climb up the stairs to the top of the swing set in the backyard so it makes playing outside a little more difficult. He thinks he is hot stuff though. Donkey has no interest in following behind his brother. Thank goodness!

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
