Guess what time it is?It is cookie time!!Anyone like a Thin Mint?
Well this is Sam's first year in Girl Scouts as a Daisy.She LOVES it!Today they had their first site sale.They sold over 250 boxes in 3 hours!As you can see above, David and Dominic showed their support by stopping by and buying a few boxes.Sam also enjoyed dressing up as a Thin Mint cookie.She became quite the sales lady by the end of the day.She started saying "come on over, we got 8 flavors, they are really good".They had several people say "I already bought some but you guys are just so cute I will buy more".We also had several people just make a donation to our troop.One lady gave us $20.00!I was shocked.
Another fun thing we did this month, was surprising the kids with a trip to Disneyland in March.I rang the door bell and they opened the door to find a note with tickets from Mickey and Minnie inviting them to come to Disneyland.They were confused at first but once we told them all about it they were screaming excited.In fact, they took off upstairs and I was like "what are they doing".Well, they were up there packing!It was funny!So, now everyday since Sam has been informing us how many days until we leave.It should be a fun road trip.How many times do you think we will hear "are we there yet"?
Today was also a great day because after selling cookies Samantha and I went to visit my sister.She is doing GREAT!She looked really good.They doctors are amazed how fast she is recovering, she has age on her side!She has been working with a physical therapist everyday to learn how to get in and out of bed the right way.She also walked quite a bit with a walker.It will be long and sore road but she is just grateful to be here!Thanks again for all your love,prayers, and happy thoughts!I have such an AWESOME family!
Oh, also I would like thank everyone for my birthday wishes!You all made me smile on days I thought I couldn't.David and the kids also made it special with letting me sleep in and waking up to homemade cards(the best kind),a mocha,beds made,&kids dressed& fed!They bought me presents(even when I said please don't) and took me out to a delicious dinner at Macaroni Grill.Love you all!

Happy 3rd Birthday Buddy!!!! OK,OK, it has been a really long time since I have last blogged.Seven months, yeah I feel really really bad. Believe me I thought about it a lot, but there was always something going on or I was too tired.So, I apologise to everyone who stopped by our page and were disappointed.I know how much I LOVE reading all of your blogs.So, with that said I will try my best to keep our blog more updated.
For his birthday,he wanted to go to the zoo and Fairy Tale town.It turned out to be a beautiful day and we followed the day off with dinner at Chili's and cake and ice cream at our house with the Grandparents and my sister Joy.Dominic is really into Peter Pan.Ever since we went to Disneyland he has been watching his DVD and has made us read him his book lots of times!So, for his birthday he received a Peter Pan cake.I made a pirate ship and then bought the figurines to put on it.He LOVED his cake.He plays with the figurines all the time,packs them everywhere, in the tub,in bed,in the car,etc.You know, sometimes when I am making them their cakes for their birthdays(it has become a tradition around here)I think it would be so much easier and less stress to just buy one but when I see their faces it SO WORTH it.Hopefully, I am giving them a memory they will always cherish.
Here are some cute pictures of Dominic that I never got to post over the past months.

Just wanted to let everyone know that Dominic did get his cast off on Thursday.We are happy it is off, but he is still walking like he has it on.They said that it will take awhile for him to walk "normal", he needs to build his muscles back up.We are just worried that he will develop a bad habit of walking with it out to the side.We will see, I am going to watch him and if he continues to walk funny I will call to see about maybe doing some physical therapy.
As you can see in the above photo, Dominic was trying out his chain saw on his first cast to see if he could get it off.
Also, please know that I do dress my kids.It seems a lot of Dominic's photos are of him in just a diaper.It is just easier with the cast to have him without bottoms.But also, my children just LOVE to be in just their underwear, I think it's a kid thing!

Here is a cute video of Dominic I took tonight.We are really excited because tomorrow morning he will get his cast off!!!!!!I am trying not to get too excited because there is always that possibility that he may need to wear it a little longer if it is still tender.It has been a long 5 weeks, I can't wait to give him a proper bath!He just can't wait to play in water again!I will keep everyone posted on the outcome!
