Fun things to do with GIRLS

So since we have FOUR little girls, I've begun to research all kinds of fun things to do with them preparing for the summer. There are SO many creative fun activities to do with your little girls. I think this will be a regular post of mine so I can reference back and maybe give other bloggers some ideas.

Since we have 8 year olds and an infant, the activities will differ. First up.....DUCT TAPE. Duct tape? My mom told me she was going to get the triplets duct tape for Easter, I did a double take and said " wha , whattt?! " She told me apparently it is all the rage right now. So of course we go over to youtube and watch this ADORABLE little girl display all the things she has done with duct tape. Wallets, bows, rings, stickers and more. Pretty neat. The girls and I will be making something soon, will be sure to document it but for now check out this video!

Weekend recap

This weekend was too short! We spent time with the girls on Friday, renting Wreck it Ralph (wasn't my fav), playing some motion wii games and just loving on each other. We also learned baby diva is a screamer! She cracks the girls up screaming. No not crying, just screaming. I think its cute for a good ol five minutes!

Saturday we had a friends birthday to go to at the new Horseshoe casino. It was VERY crowded because it is still new, we were surprised considering the "recession" we are in and all of the tables ($25 min and up) had waits. I wasn't too impressed besides of all the dining options they have. Especially Margaritaville, I am excited about that. Husband and I are supposed to meet there for day drink lunch this week, doubt we will be having too many margaritas though. 

Sunday we went to the club to work out and swim with the kids. Love that place!

Oh and today and yesterday? Snow. Why? Why oh why is it still snowing?! I remember it being hot last year at this time 80s! Mother nature someone must have pissed you off but I promise if you give us warm sunshine people will be a lot happier!

Mommy hood

Whats that you see? Momma needed an afternoon hot bath and hot cup of coffee for tired eyes and sore bones during baby's nap. 

Little missy has been MAJORLY attached to momma lately. She wants to be held all the time. Screams and fights naps and bed time (depending on how tired she is) I think she is teething because she is a big drool glob and always has her hands in her mouth. She also loves her daddy, when he comes home and tells her hello she fusses for him to pick her up ( he usually changes and washes his hands before he will because of being around so many different people). She has had some new milestones which I will discuss in her five month post, but let me just say a baby blowing raspberries is ADORABLE! Oh and finding her toes. 

I am savoring every moment because I know baby days go by so fast, she is the center of my world!

St. Patricks Day 2013

Ahh St. Patricks day. A yearly event for some of us to take off work and day drink. This year it was on a Sunday but we heard the events were going on all weekend, so another day (Sunday) to recover before Monday?! Count us in! It wasn't as crowded as it usually was but that made for open seats and no beer line. We actually ended up having a bigger group than normal,  around 10,  it was a fun time! We toured the Covington area's maintstruass village (street of bars) and called it a night at 6 p.m. Thank you mom for allowing us to nap when we got home, someone was ready to play until 11 p.m. that night. Here are a few pictures of the shenanigans.

Of course this little girlie comes first how cute!

P.S A new makeover is in the works so excited!

Sunday Social

1. Favorite thing to do on a rainy day?

Lay on the couch watch movies with the family. 

2. Favorite thing to do on a Summer weekend?

Go boating of course! Also love playing outside with the kids and having a neighborhood grill out with a glass of cold pinto on the porch. 

3. Favorite Spring accessory?

Tori Burch flats ! 

4. Favorite way to spend a Winter day?

Sled ride , drink hot chocolate, then lay by the warm fire inside.

5. What is your favorite season and why?

Close tie between summer and fall. One thing I love about where we live is that we get to expierence all four seasons. Summer is wonderful because everyone becomes more lively from the winter gloom, we love to boat and be on the water so most weekends we are boating. Then fall, the leaves start to change and the air becomes crisp, bonfires, apple/pumpkin spice, and halloween my favorite holiday (aside from Christmas)

6. Best birthday you ever had?

My last birthday of course, because I got to spend it with my baby girl!

Sell my stuff!

Ok here is the deal.....I have loads of maternity cloths and baby wear (some she hasn't worn) that I'd like to get rid of/sell to buy more. Anyone have experience with this? Do consignment shops work best? Ebay? I am pretty clueless. I know I have seen some blog sales in the past but I don't think I have a big enough following for that. Help a girl out!

BTW changes coming to the blog soon.

Katelyn 4 months

Whoa slowww down girl! The clock is just flying by. I am loving every. moment. with you. You are so close to rolling over I am sure it'll be in a matter of days. We are still breast feeding and you are eating oatmeal like a champ, you like to feed yourself as grandma said your momma did ;). Cooing, gooing, screaming and blowing raspberries are your thing. You have your daddy wrapped around your finger (tight). He puts you to bed every night and you've started to sing him sweet songs before bed. Your sisters just love you and you make them laugh more than they make you laugh! They took you on your first wagon ride on a snow day (preview of whats to come this summer) You discovered lilly (dog) and sasha (cat), I think you are going to be a tail puller. We love you Katelyn !

Hello there beautiful appliance

Finally....FINALLY we got a new fridge! Who have I become, I am so excited. Ours was falling apart it seemed and had the french doors of freezer on one side and fridge on the other. NOT ENOUGH fridge. You could get a concussion opening the door because of how full it was. So we bit the bullet and bought one on Saturday & they delivered on Tuesday. Removing everything was a chore but the outcome was so worth it. We went with the LG door in door. LOVE IT. I love the "secret door" as the girls call it, we can put in fast drinks and snacks in there for a quick grab. It has so much space.

Travel Babbles

February was a busy month, I confess I am glad it is over! We took the whole gang to Indianapolis museum and water park for two days with my mom, uncle and his grandson. Then we were brave enough to fly down to Florida with the baby to visit Gran and Papa. The plane travel needs its own post, so for now I will picture dump our adventures. Little Miss's swimsuit was a show stopper everywhere of course, I just crack up and die every time she is in it!
