Gladys & Internet Overload

I'm not super technical... it was just a couple of months ago that I found out that "You Tube" wasn't "U Tube." And today, I'm going to share with you two You Tube videos. I embedded them all by myself too!!
Last night I went to my Grandmom's house for her Quiltie Group (mind you all we do is eat... no sewing in sight). My sister (by default) Sarah showed everyone the video from the Ellen show. We were all on the floor laughing.

I was over at Rocks In My Dryer and saw this video. This is totally how I feel about all the Internet hoop-da-la. Someday I'll join Facebook... promise!

Cake, Crafts, Great Food, Lame Movie

We did celebrate Valentine's Day... just not on Cora Jane's birthday! I started with a Red Velvet Cake (which is actually just chocolate cake with LOADS of red food coloring... thx Lindsay!). I have never made one before... those suckers are R-E-D!! I mean play dough red... it freaked me out. After I frosted it, the poor little cake just looked pathetic. My friends ate it anyway.

Of course, we did some Valentine's crafts!! I just cut a bunch of hearts and let the kiddos go wild with glue and glitter.
I came up with some festive heart art pieces (art pieces sounds so much more fancy!). But most of all my little ones had fun and I was soaking up every second of it!!
We presented Hot Hubby with his Valentine... he loved it!
Already in their PJs, we whisked the kiddos off to their buddies' house so we could have a hot date.We had the best dinner ever at Lou's Red Oak BBQ Grill (thanks Susie!!) then saw the lamest movie ever. I don't want to bad talk about the movie because I'm just not into the ranting blogs, but... we saw He's Just Not That Into You. #1 The whole movie was stolen from an episode of Sex and the City... you remember the one when Samantha gets advice about the guy that "just isn't that into" her? #2 We aren't into cheating and lying in a marriage... not entertainment for us. We thought it was lame... so spend the $22.00 if you want to... we wish we could have ours back!
We went to pick up the kiddos (played some Wii with our friends before we woke them up!) and finished off the night with a snuggle... ;)

Take a bite out of this book...

I just devoured this month's book club pick... The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
The Tale is a bit dark in the beginning but leaves you very satisfied at the end!

Eli "helped" blow out the candle just as Cora Jane was reaching for the flame... that Big Brother instinct must already be kicking in!

The Poem...

A few days before this Lover's Holiday my Hot Hubby wrote me a poem and framed it...It was lovely and silly and witty. See...

Kara Noel, Kara Noel
I adore you Kara Noel
You are the mother of our wonderful kids
You are the creator of Eli's Lids.
I love to look into your beautiful eyes,
They somehow make me realize,
Just how thankful I am for you,
And all the wonderful things you do!
I feel like the luckiest man on this earth,
Because you went through the pains of child birth,
Two beautiful kids is what you gave to me,
To give us a start to our family.
Come follow me and you will see,
Just how wonderful our lives will be!
I can only hope to show you my love,
By leading you to our God above!!!
Kara Noel, Kara Noel
I adore you Kara Noel

Well my Lover... I'll be thanking you later ;)
I'm linking this up with Mommy Sweet Mom's Things in My House Thursday! Join the fun and add a link too!!

Silhouettes are awesome!

I was visiting one of my Blogging Buddies Karen over at Momma's Lil Haven, (her Journey to Motherhood is a MUST READ!) she shared this:

My Family from WiddlyTinks.com
How cute is that?!?!?! You can make a silhouette of your family too!
I was featured on the OC Register's Mom Blog... check out these other awesome blogs here... mine included!

Eat, Play, Love

I ate it yesterday... I'm not talking cookie dough! I'm talking pavement! It's raining and I'm walking along in my husband's worn out Rainbows (flip flops) and I slipped and landed on my ankle. I just sat there like an idiot thinking... "I can't believe I fell!" My mom was over and of course I was instantly a big baby. I was brimming with childhood satisfaction when I showed "my mommy" the bloody scrape on my wrist. It was like proof that I was really hurt.

The instant Hot Hubby gets home from work...

Daddy is much more fun than mommy. He can do all sorts of sound effects!
I love buying books for my kiddos. I have this thing where I get the kiddos a book for every holiday. I was browsing the Valentines section and found this lovely little book...

Snuggle Puppy! a little love song by Sandra Boynton

Valentines has officially begun...

Every time we poured the glitter off a Valentine Eli would yell Happy Birthday Dada!! It was hysterical!!
One for each of Eli and Cora Jane's Buddies...
I love my boy!!
We didn't forget Eli's favorite person...
The little stamped heart is made from Eli's finger prints. Press the little one's finger on the stamp pad. Stamp on the paper at an angle. Twist and stamp again.
I think this would be so cute with red ink on a white Valentine!!
Note: All the Valentine stuff is 50% off at Michaels... sometimes it pays to procrastinate!
