Sweet Heart Dance!

This weekend was Meg's sweetheart dance.  She had a real hard time finding a double SO.... she got to double with her parents and T's parents!  We all had a fun time (we... his parents... have been friends for a long time).  Meg cannot wait till her 6 months are up so she can actually drive with a date somewhere and not have to have her parents drop them off!

Meanest Mom EVER!

One of my favorite blogs that I follow is The Meanest Mom.  I like her sarcasm & she has some hilarious stories and creative ways of thinking up consequences for her own children.  (Check out her story about the chicken Pox!)   I started reading her blog mostly because I have told my kids their whole lives that I'M the meanest mom.   With this in mind... I have been trying to get my children to keep their rooms clean, make their beds, do their jobs... sometimes we succeed sometime we don't.  

Earlier this week Zack ordered a codex for Brayden and they are eagerly awaiting its arrival!   I had a brilliant idea (if I do say so myself!) on Tuesday... I will receive the package... and HIDE it somewhere in their mess of a room!!!  They won't know whose room it is in... only that it has arrived!   Brayden decided that he would thwart my efforts by keeping his room clean all week!


Let the cleaning begin!!!!
Maybe I will be cruel and hide it in their sisters room!
