Sweeped Away

Pearcia would like me to write a blog since it has been so long and really it has been 5 months since I last blogged that is crazy! Time goes by so fast!
Today I was actually sweeping the wonderful wood floors that we have and was thinking man I really could write a blog about sweeping because it seems like a sweep everyday. Yes we have rugs at every door, area rugs for whatever purpose that is for, to create a space or something I guess, but anyway it seems like there is always food, dust balls, hair or cracker crumbs on the floor daily and it makes me crazy!!! I will sweep one day and the very next day there will be dust balls. How do dust balls collect so quick. Anyway that is just something stupid that I notice because it seems I spend a lot of time at home.
Back to this blog business, Blogging is just not my thing. I would love for everyone of you just to come over and have a cup of joe and I will bake you something yummy and we can talk about our lives, our blogs! That would be so fun. I feel like I keep up with everyone because I read your blog, but then i see you and I see your blog in my brain and I think I would rather see your pretty face on my couch chatting with me! So call and make an appointment! ha ha would love to chat.
We have been doing so many new, fun things these days! Madison is in preschool part of the day and she just loves it. She is so smart! I think every mom thinks that about their kid, but she is the youngest kid in her class and she keeps up. I love to watch her face when we get there and sees her teacher. She loves her so much! My little miss independent Emma is giving me a run for my money these days. She seems to have something to say after everything I tell her to do and most of the time she is deciding to do something else other than what I tell her to do. It's fun. She has a case of the terrible twos! But that sweet little face of hers gets me everytime. So hard to punish her when those blue eyes are looking up at you. My weakness I guess but im cracking down. I cant handle it anymore. My cute little husband has been doing so great! That guy works so hard and drives such a pile to work. He got this free BMW awhile ago so that he would have a car to drive in the rain instead of his motorcyle. So he got that thing all souped up to drive, smog, gas, fluids, and guess what the windshield wipers dont work and he has to disconnect the battery everytime he gets out of the car because something is draining the battery and he can't figure it out. It's kinda funny. but now the floor boards are wet which means there is a leak. What else will go wrong? I guess you will have to stay tuned, but he is such a sport and he doesn't complain most of the time. haha. As for me, I have been doing super. I started doing wedding coordinating awhile ago and we are getting closer to wedding season so I am so stooked! I have a few summer weddings to keep me busy and have really been enjoying the planning process. They are going to be great! Matt and I have been making time for the two of us lately. Last weekend for Valentines Day we took a trip to Chico. We spent the night in a really fun hotel with a spa in our room. Super fancy! Had some really great food and some good one on one time! So nice to have grandparents in town. We have also been so blessed to have some really great friends! We have a life group at our house and have really been getting to know other couples and their kids. It is so great to watch God work in our lives everyday! We are so truly blessed. So you know me I probably wont blog again for a while so you will have to call me and I will have you over to chill. The door is always open and something yummy is in the oven for ya!

I haven't posted in so long, but I just have to let everyone know that I am super excited that Grey's Anatomy is on tonight!!!! Two hours! Matt and I love this show. We snuggle and watch it together. Wierd, but we love it! I think I prefer catching up with people face to face and not with this blog stuff. I am just a blog stocker that's all!!!

pee pee in Potty

It is a very important day in the Hartley household! Emma has officially decided to use the potty! She thinks it is so exciting to bring me the little potty bowl and say "I go pee pee"! She is so proud of herself and so am I. I can finally have a little rest on the diaper bill. I have been buying diapers for 3 years. I went from buying diapers for Madison to Madison and Emma at one point and then down to just Emma. I am hoping within the next few weeks we will no longer be visiting Target as frequently! Yeah! There is only one condition to this potty training madness, She will only use the potty if she is naked. I Bought her really cool Dora panties last night hoping that she would not go in them and she did twice. So we are going to have to get use to those panties, but it is a great start to my little Emme growing up.

The Rodeo

The Rodeo parade is a tradition in our home. When Matt was in Junior High and High School he was in the band. (yea one of those nerds) His Mom went to everyone of those parades whether it be in the rain, snow, or 100 degree temps. As a kid, my parents also always took us to the parades. We enjoyed the floats and the music. So it is enevitable that our children pass down the parade tradition and it is still very important to Matt's mom. Madison loves the drummers in the parade. She stands and marches with them. It is so much fun to watch how excited all the kids get!

Madison's 3rd Brithday

Madison is very much into princess's and dressing up. So I decided to throw her a princess party. I had been dreaming up this party for quit some time. My husband said I went a little overboard. But you only have a 3rd Birthday once right?!!!

Yea for a gloomy day

I am stoked that today is a cloudy day. I have been freaking out for the past week over this hot hot heat we have getting and its only may. I have lived in this town my whole life and why is it that now I am freaking out. Maybe its the old age!!

If anyone needs some AC it will be running nice and cool at my house. Come over for some drinks and snacks at my shack. It will always be cool. and the kiddy pool is always full of water. My grass might be dead though because I would rather cool my house than water the grass!!!
