1950's and 2010's

Today during naptime I told my husband I felt like a total 1950's couple because he was doing some chores and I was making muffins for the boys. Then he did the doggie DNA test we bought for our my husband said "Did they do DNA tests in the 50's?" Ha Ha.

I can't wait to see the results. Our dog was found on the side of the road when he was a puppy by a friend. We think he is lab and a bit of Great Dane but we've never known for sure. He has very long legs and it tall with a Great Dane looking tale. I'm so excited.

I have one that is set on Superman (the one with the muscles built in) and one that keeps telling everyone that he wants to be a clown and then when I show him clown costumes screams NO! He said yes to a Woody costume so I bought it and we have a Batman costume and Football jersey as backups.

It should be interesting tomorrow to see what he will put on when dressing for his preschool parade. :-)

Pumpkin Patch

We had the best weekend. We went to the pumpkin patch on Sat and then to a Children's Festival on Sunday. The boys are so funny. Really this weekend was all smiles. Yea! I love that they are old enough to enjoy these types of things...makes me feel good.

We found tons of fire ants in our house yesterday. My husband and I cleaned out the closet where we keep our dogs food and he put the dog food in our garage. So guess what happens within 10 mins after the bug guy came and sprayed....yep! They spilled the entire container of dog food in the garage. Yes...that will help our ant situation a ton!

This is weird....this picture is saved the correct way in my files but when I upload to blogger it twists it to the side. Anyone know why??

Yea...I won my match last night and today. My game is back on. :-)

I always feel like I'm skipping school when I play on Tuesdays during the day. I drop the boys off at a babysitter about once a month to play with a tennis team during the day. It feels so weird. My regular team is a night team so my husband can watch the boys but this day team asked me to play and it is some of my close friends so I said yes. Initially my husband was not to happy with me paying a babysitter so I could go play tennis but since he's been working a lot of weekends he mentioned that I could hire a babysitter to give me a break on a Saturday occassionally and I said I'll just take that babysitter on Tuesdays and play tennis. He knew there was no argueing with that. Ha Ha.

Pink for boys?

I did some fast talking in the store today when buying the boys helmets. We almost came home with pink Dora helmets. I needed to take them with me to see what size they were (they have really big heads and needed the 5+ size even though they are 2) but once Dean saw the pink Dora helmet he just had to have that one...oh goodness. I knew that DH would not be happy with that purchase so I did some convincing that Lightning McQueen would be sooo cool! Then I realized there was only one. Ugh. I've got to go find another Lightning McQueen at a different store in town.

I decided we needed some helmets even though the boys only ride low big wheels and plasma cars. We had our 3rd head injury yesterday. We play with our neighbors and sometimes they don't realize that they shouldn't push my boys fast on their riding toys.

I want to add that I don't have a problem with the boys wearing pink (we even have a play kitchen even though that stressed my father out) and my husbands favorite tie is pink but I thought a pink Dora helmet was just a bit too much.
