Finger painting!

Poor Kyson was so bored this morning! The poor thing was standing out on the screened-in porch, looking between the posts for someone to come outside from his Nana's. He was hollering "Nana!!", and then he got all excited when each car passed. He still has about a year before his baby sister is any fun, lol. The wonderful thing about living next to your cousins is that a play date is just a phone call away! Miss Lala was on her way to the rescue (just as soon as she woke up, sleepy headed little girl that she is), and the rest of the morning was filled with fun! We finger painted (as the title of this post ensues)! It was Ky's first time, and he was none too sure of himself! The pictures pretty much speak for themselves. After his nap we all ate some baked chicken nuggets (yum?) with corn as a side, and then I let them both have veggie&fruit popsicles, which they loved! Kyson pitched a fit to get in the Ergo when he saw me putting Kade in. I don't really use it as much as I thought I would, but I think as Miss Kade gets a little older (and a little more demanding) it will get more use. I really love wearing them in it! Now I've turned on Dora the Explorer for some quiet time :)

coupons?

I'm hooked. I love to coupon! I love going into Wal-mart, getting name brand products, things we need, but only paying a fraction of what I'm supposed to. My total today was a little over $10, and I saved more than $25! I got Benadryll Anti-itch cream (2), Bengay cream (2), Tylenol Precise cream, BIC  disposable razors 4 pk (2, money maker!!), and Combat Ant Baits (2)! I felt so good when I tallied up the receipt! I also got Lysol wipes, Tetley tea bags, Colgate toothpaste (money maker), and a Benadryll to-go spray all for super cheap at other stores. I've been at it for about three weeks now, and I've already saved us so much money! We're stocked up on laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, deodorant, shampoo, and soap for at least a month, more like 2!

Just had to brag a little bit :) Now for the news!

Ky is gaining his chunk back! lol. He has a bit of a double chin, and his diapers fit like they used to. FINALLY! I was so so worried about him. He's drinking milk again (chocolate soy milk for the most part), eating a wide variety of foods, and still taking a vitamin (yuck!).

Kaedrianna is such a little chunk! I love her :) She's such a happy baby! She laughed for the first time a couple of nights ago when I was snuggling her up! I can't wait until her next check-up to see how much she weighs!

I'm in love with our screened in porch! It's not all that bug proof, there are holes and cracks everywhere (Josh's first home improvement project), but it's a safe place for Ky to play and it makes him happy, which makes me happy!

Today is mine and Josh's three year wedding anniversary. Some times it seems like we've been together for ever and other days it feels like we're still newly weds trying to figure each other out, lol. All I know is that I am still incredibly in love with him! I'm so glad I snagged him up!

Count down to the family camping trip has started! Josh and I wont be there the whole time due to his work schedule, we're just coming the last two nights. Really though, after two nights I think I will be more than ready to get back to my own bed!!
