Apparently IKE isn't one of our blog readers/stalkers........or he would have noticed that we are leaving for DISNEY WORLD next Wednesday!!! How is a girl supposed to pack a family for 11 days, when she has to worry about packing valuables, provisions, and a pending evacuation...TAKE A HIKE IKE...please!!! Mickey is waiting....

"Raiser" anyone??

Ok...I never in my wildest dreams thought a 3 year old would have a fundraiser...boy was I wrong!! Entertainment/Coupon books, Sally Foster Products...wrapping paper, greeting cards, etc. Today Lauren was given a fundraiser package after her Ballet class....She now attends
If you are interested, let her know.:) She already made one phone call....more to come...maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones.:) Hehehe...:) (local books being sold, but out of town books can be purchased online with the organization receiving credit....we have the order form for local books) (you can look at all of the items here...we have the order form)

If the shoe fits....

Our trip to Academy earlier today....

L and I were in the shoe dept. looking for some socks. The salesclerk was helping me, and L was coon-fingering every shoe box on the aisle....but with a purpose....She grabbed a pair, that was probably 5 sizes too big, and told me..

L- "Mommy, I need to try these on....THEY FIT!!! Now I can work with Daddy !"

SO SWEET!! She sees M in his black work shoes....

It was priceless......she looked like she would fit right in as a Kroger get the picture.:)

(this is actually a "cute" shoe compared to the creepy old man looking one she had on)

First Day of ScHoOl!!!

Okay, well not Kindergarten yet...but Mother's Day Out!
L was wide awake and in my room at 6:45 (YIKES!) wanting to know if it was time to go to school! I told her she could get in bed with me and try to get a little more rest! ( I think it was Mommy who needed a little more sleep!)
She never fell asleep...that I know of..:) BUT, we were up when my alarm went off at 7:15!

Seems we have reached the age where she has to "pose" for every picture..
trying not to smile...
or talk....
L was excited to meet her new friends and see her old friends....watching everyone come in the door....she must get that nosy-ness from M!.:)
She didn't blink an eye...gave me a big hug and kiss...and was ready to start the day..
I had to take another peek to make sure she was okay before I left....There were a few other Paparazzi moms taking pics too.:)

Our ride home was 10 minutes...I think she started drifting off at about 7 minutes.....It's tough being 3!!!
