The ABC 500

So what happens when you grow up with out a lot of money? You get ghetto creative. Thats right I said ghetto creative. When I was a kid my parents were not rich (in money), so we had to find things fun to do around the house. Well it has carried with me. Where did this inspiration come from? The boys were driving their cars and kept driving through my legs while I was standing in the kitchen rooting them on, so I decided, wouldn't it be fun to make some sort of obstacle course for them? Heck yes! So when I got the boys down for their naps my ghetto creative skills got to work, and here it is.......let me remind you just how ghetto it is......it's really ghetto....

To start out, they must zigzag through the year supply water "cones" (there are more of them, I just couldn't get them in the shot), and then through the "not so never ending tunnel"

If they are lucky enough to make it through that oh so scarey tunnel, they must get under the "limbo stick of death!"

Then my friends they must make it through the "jungle o' streamers" (now this is the greatest of all my ghettoness. I didn't have streamers, so I took an old table cloth we had and made my own!)

Then we finally meet the end, but they must break through the ABC's to win the race!

I was trying to think of a way to make some sort of ramp (without them getting hurt of course) but I couldn't think of anything I could do to make it ghetto style. Any ideas?
The boys are napping now so we haven't tried it out yet, but I will be sure to let you know.

Thanks for checkin out my ghetto fabulousness, and a special thanks to mom and dad for helping me become the ghetto creative girl that I am today.

Boys Will Be Boys....I Guess

Blake has never once seen any Spiderman movies, or any cartoon of Spiderman, so why is it that he loves him? I don't even know where the kid figured out who he is! He tells me "Mom, I am spiderman! I shoot webs!" What? How do you know this stuff? Maybe it is in the genetic makeup of boys, you just know it straight out of the womb. This is him showing me how to shoot webs, and Kade just happy that Blake is letting him play spiderman too.

The boys wanted a tent, need I say more? Boys are so easy to please, move the couches and throw a blanket on top and they love it. But of course, as soon as I leave the room for half a second, Kade, the "daredevil," decides that being under the tent just isn't cool enough. Luckily I walked in with the camera and caught them before Blake got in the middle and the whole thing came crashing down. Which by the way it did come crashing down a short time later when my sister decided that she was going to try and climb in the middle of the blanket, I really wish I had my camera when that happened. I had to remind her that though she is small, she isn't 25 pounds! sheesh

Missing My Honey

I am feeling a little self conscious about having a picture of me on my blog, it's weird. Adam has been out of town since Wednesday, and I am dying inside. Okay I am being a little dramatic, but I am missing him like crazy. The boys are missing him too, they keep asking for him. He made "Top Performers" at work, which is a big deal and totally awesome. So as a reward, they flew him to Florida (yah I know!) for 3 days. I am so proud of him and all of his awesomeness at work, and know that he totally deserves it. I just hate being away from him! He comes home tonight and I can't wait to see his hotness, just thought you would like to know.

Its Hot

Since it is already 9ooo degrees outside, the boys (well Blake with Kade imitating) have been begging to go swimming. Call me lame but I am not a fan of pools or my kids swimming in them (I am terrified of it actually) so Adam bought a sprinkler to satisfy them and keep me sane. Well they love it! They were outside playing this morning, and we were all sweating to death so I stripped them down (not bothering with swimsuits) and turned it on. We were all soaking by the time we were done and shivering slightly because the wind started blowing. It was a fun morning!

These two sure know how to make me crazy and also the happiest person in the world. I don't know what I would do with out them or how my life would be. They fight like crazy but also love each other so much. I am so blessed to have them in my life. They are cute as can be and I love them more than my own life.
