Cute Baby Audrey and We got a New Puppy!

Here is our new puppy it is a male dog we named him "Remington". It is a purebred Britany dog. He is funny our kids love him. My hubby named him. He is a hunting dog. We plan on training him to hunt birds since he is a bird hunting dog. Yes he is named after a gun company. I think it is a cute name. He is 7 weeks old now.

Here is a rare image a picture of my baby Audrey. She hates her picture taken with a passion. Glad to get one where she isn't crying or hand in my camera.

Star Pupil

Kiefer is being featured in his class this week. Here is the picture we used for his board. He was so hard to get this shot. I didn't have any current pictures of him so I had to get him to do a quick photo shoot. out of 75 pictures only three turned out. He is such a stinker when it comes to having me take his picture.

All my kids are like that. I should post the type of pictures I get when I try to take their pictures. I get talk to the hand shots. Audrey will even grab my lens and push it up saying "no", don't wanna". This would be done on my very first attempt. So that is why I don't have a bunch of pictures of my kids cause when they are doing something cute and I grab the camera to capture the moment the moment is gone as soon as they see me with a camera. Photographers syndrome sucks!

I'll get off my soap box now!

Anyway Kiefer has only gotten in trouble twice with the teacher. Once he was running around the room and the teacher asked him to sit down and join the class but he wouldn't. I can picture this happening and I think it sounds funny. But I didn't let Kiefer know that. Then the second time he didn't listen to the teacher.

I think Kiefer will love to have some attention in his class when they spot light hime.

I can't believe he is 5 and already in school. Time fly's!

what most chuck e cheese's looks like today

here is what the chuck e cheese stage looked like today

Chuck e cheeses

I have been thinking for a while how it is too bad chuck e cheese remodled there resturant leaving out the full band. I loved the full band. The only thing freaky was the clapping animal hands around the room. So I contacted chuck e cheese and asked if there were any old school chuck e cheese's left. They said yes and it turns out it was not too far from my home. So we went there tonight. It was really fun to see the whole band. There was no clapping animal hands just chuck e chess, that girl bird, the monster on the keyboard, the dog on the gutar, and the cook on the drums. My kids loved it and this one had a lot better rides then the closest one to me. I am going to go to every chuck e cheese in AZ to see all the old school stages.

What's your thoughts on chuck e cheese. Do you remember the clapping animal hands? Have you seen a location that has that still recently?

Love Christian Bale as an Actor!

Recently I have been watching all the movies Christian Bale has made except the rated R ones. I am at awe at his acting skills seems he was born with. I just watch "newsies", awesome movie a must in your home collection of movies. My kids loved it so much they still sing the songs and act out some of the fight scenes with a few lines that went with those fight scenes. So cute and funny.

My favorite movies of his are "Little women", " Newsies", "Empire of the Sun", "Swing Kids", "Batman". Love these movies he is a great actor.

So I went to wikipedia ( and read up on his background. I wanted to know when did he first started acting. Then I found out it was a Pac-Man Cereal TV Commercial in 1983. Check out the pictures so funny. I sort of remember the cereal never had it due to how my parents raised me.

Just had to share too funny!

This is going to be one Crazy year

After reading my cousin Lynnette's blog about how she donated her hair to locks of love. I thought how that was really neat. I have always wanted to do that. So I made up my mind I was going to do it. In the past when I went to salons they wouldn't do it for me they would talk me out of it. So after looking on the locks of love website I followed their instructions and did it. I cut my hair! My hair was 14 inches long with layers. I divided it up into four 10 inch pony tails and then cut them off. Then went to a salon to have them fix my hair to look good. I love my new hair cut. Yes it is way shorter then I would normally would go but I just think of the child receiving a wig with my hair in it and the joy that child will feel. It is so worth it. I love having hair I can't imagine being bald for good.

A plus for me is it took me one hour to wash my long hair and now it takes 5 minuets. It took me 3 hours to style my hair then by half way into the day it looked all goofy and undone. Now it takes me 10 minuets and my hair stays styled all day long. It helps so much having three little ones and a ton of stuff to do each day. Because it took me so long to do stuff to my hair I wore a pony tail all the time. So it is really nice to be able to style it in a short time and do many different dos. Yes, I do plan on growing my hair out. My goal is when it is long again I will have lost all my baby weight. So it is really a win win thing. Some child gets a wig and I gain back some control to my busy life. I can just see this year for me is going to be One Crazy year.

Pick above was taken last saturday at a bridal show the booth next to mine was a photo booth. The Idea is to have the bride have it their for her guests. It is a really cool thing now day weddings are doing. Check it out at my other blog.

My four 10 inch pony tails for Locks of Love

Me in shock of what I just did.

I'm happy what I did no regrets. Bye bye long hair!
