So much to catch up on!

There is so much to catch up on I don't know where to start!

I still do not have a computer! My computer crashed and is long gone. I'm still waiting on Santa Clause to by my another one! HAHAHAHA.

I miss posting so much! So sorry there will be no pictures this post, but i will try to catch you up.

First of all there will be a new baby Cottonboll arriving very soon! I'm pregnant and due in June! If I make it that long! Its a BOY! We all very excited and counting the days till he is here!

Cottonboll is very excited to be a big sister! She always has lots of questions from how to when and can he sleep in my room? She now has a new room that is painted pink and no play room. We have worked very hard to get her in one room and keep it neat. Papa has built shelves in her new closet, we have under bed totes for dress up clothes and she even let me get rid of some of her toys. For the ones who do not know this, my Dad, (Papa) is a pack rat and my daughter has inherited this gene and it is very strong in her! I mean very strong she will not let go of anything! This pack rat gene is not strong in me and I can get rid if stuff! so we have battles junk vs trash all the time. Cottonboll letting me get rid of stuff was ans is a big deal!

Cottondust is excited also. We had issues about baby Cottonboll's name, but we have worked them out and the baby Cottonboll does have name.

Cottondust is very busy this time of year and feels pressure. The bigger and more uncomfortable I get and the more the more pressure he feels. I have warned him I don't think I will make it to June, I'm thinking the end of May sounds good to me. So he feels pressure to tie up lose ends at work and be prepared for the big day.

I will try to post as soon as I can again! till then check back on and off!

This summer went by so fast! and now I cant keep up with Fall!

After we got into our school routine Cottonboll started Dance class again and is now also playing indoor soccer. It seems like we are always so busy.

Cottonboll and I have finally adjusted to a 5 day a week school. (It was much easier for Cottonboll ), but we, ok I have adjusted. We treasure our time together from 3:15 till 5:00. Eating a snack and just chatting. She really is very funny. I love to see the world through her eyes.

Every Tuesday night she has homework. We cut out pictures from a magazine beginning with the letter of the week. Remember doing that, I do! She is learning so much, such a little sponge. Everyday she comes home and tells me about her day and what she learned. So amazing how the little things we thought we just knew was once taught to us in kindergarten. One day last week she came and home and explained the past, present and future to me. Then there are days when we are riding in the car and she starts singing a new song about pennies, nickles and dimes. She is so amazing and I'm a proud Mom.

Cottonboll turns 5

A Little catching up to do!

On August 5th Cottonboll turned 5

We had a Tinkerbell in Space birthday party! It was at the Science Spectrum, friends dressed up as Tinkerbell and friends. We also crawled inside a space bubble and looked a the stars and constellations. Then after the party the kiddos played at the Science Spectrum.

The party was fun, the kiddos had a great time and for the the 1st time it was not a my house. So great, for the stress factor and I did not have to clean my house twice. Before the party and after the party. So great !
I took many pictures but I cant post a lot of them because of the other children but I do have some I can post.

I love the pictures, of my niece Lily and Cottonboll. Lily is tying Cottonboll's ribbon back in her hair

First Week of School

Of course Cottonboll had a great first day and week! She is and was so excited to go back each and every day. The only issue she has had is with lunch! The first day of school, was enchilada day. It didn't go over so well. She said it looked so yucky and didn't taste it, but she did try the rice and said "The rice had a pepper in it and IT did not taste like my Nana's rice"Luckily the next day was cheese pizza day and that was great! She came home and said lunch was great I got to eat pizza!
Lunch has really been the only issue. She loves the structure and rules of school. Cottonboll talks non stop of her day, "first we do this, then clean up and we go to P.E. we have to wear tennis shoes, no flip flops or sandals, so if I wear my sandals I have to take tennis shoes in my back pack! She talks just like that and forgets to take a breath, I love it!
So I guess we are surviving school, even though it is 5 Days a week and all day long. But I still think 5 days a week is a bit much maybe 3days?

First Day Of School

I am going to try to catch you up on everything that happened this summer, eventually!
I think, I hope but anyway I will start with the here and know.
First Day of School KindergartenSo excited!
Last Monday was the first day of Kindergarten for our baby girl! What a day it was! Cottondust and I walked her to school, to her room, got her all setup and gave her good luck hugs and kisses. She was okay until she realized it was time for Daddy and Mommy to leave and the tears started.

Seriously who could walk away from that face? It was hard but I did and I kept it together until she couldn't see me and then let a few tears escaped. On the walk home my tough old hubby kept saying she is okay, she will be fine she is just spoiled. So after Cottondust finally left for work, I could cry in peace! My baby is growing up so fast!
