~This and That~

Dax loves this helmet - This helmet was a hand me down! It was my cousin, Brett's, who is now a junior in college, his brother Brady then got to have fun with and now it's Dax's. Dax played with is at Christmas at their house and has been asking for it since. This is his favorite toy at the moment!!

Lani has introduced Harper to Silly Bands! Lani and Dax both love her so much. I'm glad Lani is already wanting to share with her!!

This is why Lani does not pick out her clothes for school on a regular basis :)

Sunday afternoon, we enjoy time outside on the slip-n-slide. Lani and Dax really need to put on some pounds before they have the real slip-n-slide experience. Jarod did add a little bit of soap to make it more eventful!

Jarod is very upset over this photo, but he will get over it. Yesterday, while I was feeding Harper, Lani decides to paint Dax's fingernails! As you can tell, he didn't put up a fight! The funny thing - Lani kept saying "Dax, daddy doesn't have to know about this." Oh and he had to go to school like this today, because I was all out of finger nail polish remover.

~Awards Night~

Thursday Night was Lani and Dax's end of the year Award's Night at Covenant Christian Academy. All of the classes sang songs and were given awards. Lani received the "Best Big Sister" Award, because she loves her brother and sister sooooo much! Dax received the "Most Athletic" Award, which made daddy very proud! Before Awards Night started, I did a little bribing and told L and D if they went on stage without crying, and sang their songs good, we would take a trip to scoops. Lani and Dax did great and were able to enjoy a scoop of Superman Ice Cream. I thin you can tell by the pics that they really enjoyed their ice cream!

~Brother/Sister Love~

Harper's arrival has definitely been something Lani and Dax have been anxiously awaiting! Dax was a little stand-offish at the hospital, and of course Lani runs in and is ready to get her hands on her. Lani and Dax have both been very gentle with her and run in everyday and ask to hold her. The love their little sister!!!

Lani is happy to be a big sister again!!

~All These Emotions~

I had a hard time sleeping, so I thought blogging at 5am sounded like a good idea! I have actually been up since four - I couldn't get comfy and I think I'm starting to get a little anxious about Friday!! Super Excited Though - I don't' know why I get nervous - it's not like I have never had a child or a c-section before!! The past week, all these crazy things have made me cry...
1-Lani on the Mother's Day video at Church - I feel like this was a legitimate cry - It was just so sweet.

2-The Cosby Show - Yes, The Cosby Show - I love the Cosby's, maybe that's why I cried. But the episode was when Theo and Denise got hit by Stevie Wonder's driver and he invited the family to a recording session - this was not sad, but for some crazy reason I sat there and cried during the entire episode.

3- Dax ringing his bell on stage for the Awana Ceremony - I think I cried a little because he wasn't crying and was such a big boy on stage.

4-Uncomfortable back pain I was having last night - I thought Harper was going to visit us early and I cried. We have always ordered personalized golf balls to give out when our kids are born instead of giving cigars, suckers, etc...Well, I started getting afraid that the date on Harper's golf balls was going to be all wrong - Yes, Crazy I know!!

When I started typing, there were several other crazy moments I had, but now I can't seem to remember what they were. Oh well, 1 more day and hopefully, my emotions will be back to normal!! I Hope Everyone Has a Great Thursday!!

~Mother's Day Weekend~

I had a great Mother's Day Weekend! Jarod, Lani and Dax gave me a gift certificate for a hair cut and color and a gift certificate for a pedicure! I am going to get the new cut and color tomorrow afternoon! I have all these gray hairs and I have got to get rid of them too. Not sure how I'm going to get my hair cut. i thought I wanted to grow my hair out again, but I'm kind of sick of it. Lani and Dax also brought me home lots of cute goodies they made at school last week. The highlight of the day though was seeing my little Lani Bug on the big screen at church and talking about why she loves her mommy. I knew she was going to do this and I am glad I was aware ahead of time, because if it would have been a surprise I would have been crying louder than I already was. Lani said in the video that she loves her mommy because I cook her chicken nuggets, I give her hugs and I give her kisses! So sweet!! All the kids in the video did a great job!!

Shout out to my mom - She is great and I am glad we are so close!! Yes, we argue at times, Yes, we don't always see things the same way, but isn't that normal!! :) I'm glad my mom is one of my best friends and how we always have a great time when we are together - I love you mom!!

One more exciting thing. As most of you know, I have gained this love for coupons! I love Bi-Lo and using my bonus card and coupons. Well, I usually give them my bonus card after they scan the groceries because I LOVE seeing the total drop tremendously - Well, Saturday when the scanned my groceries, my total was $101.04, then I give them my bonus card and coupons and my total = $65.86. My deal of the day - 2 loaves of Sara Lee Bread for a Grand Total of $0.58!!! The bread was buy one get on free and I had 2 dollar off coupons! I was super pumped about that deal!!!

Lani petting a calf. I'm not sure if she was suppose to pet it or not, but she just kind of walked up and did it.
