Okay do you ever wonder what to do with all that chocolate your kids get for Easter? I asked Patton what he wanted to make and he said chocolate cake so I decided to incorporated some of that candy into my cake. All I did was got a box cake mix (double chocolate for us) I added Carmel sauce, m&m's, three musketeers, and Hershey kisses. For the icing I just melted icing and drizzled it over and Carmel syrup and then added nuts, and three musketeers crushed up on top. Easy and delicious!
The winner of this week is Larry. Larry come get your yummy's!

Poor Lindsey tried so hard but by 8:30 the Dr. said it was time to do a c-section. I can't wait to go hold him and love on him tomorrow. I did call home to tell Parker who was very excited and wanted to know ASAP I heard him tell Patton that smiles was here. So I am afraid that he might be nicked named smiles from us. Better go to bed nighty night smiles!
Hey world hows it going
Look at all the hair! That explains the heartburn
He had his tongue going the whole time. Feed me mommy feed me

Thats right I just got a phone call saying that Lindsey's water had just broke. Okay so she is not dilated and she is not thinned out that much. Yea, yea baby Jermayne will not be here for a while I am sure. Maybe she will surprise us all. Any hoo they are headed to the hospital now due to the fact that she has to have antibotics right away for GBS. Okay so now I am not tired and will not sleep I am sure. I will keep you posted and hopefully pictures real soon! Wow another baby in the family that won't come home with me:) One I can enjoy and say here mom and dad I am done, what a change that will be.

Life is so short to have regrets and to try to always change what we cannot so why not try to change what we can and be better people.

I asked Patton what he wanted to make for today and named off a few things. His all time favorite is Oreo Cream Pie so that is what he picked. Easy enough and quick I agreed.
You will need
2 boxes Oreo pudding
2.5 cups cold milk
1 tub cool whip
crushed Oreo's for the top
Put your milk and Oreo pudding in a bowl mix it up, then add half of the container of cool whip and mix that all up. Pour into a Oreo crumb pie crust, they are by the pie crust at the grocery store. Add the remaining cool whip on top and then the crushed Oreo's and all done.
The recipe is also on the back of the pie crust. Very cheap and easy and yummy! ENJOY:)
Okay I did not get a full shot of it because once it hits the table it is gone!

The boys were getting out of the bath when Brad spotted Ricky the raccoon in the front yard. He yelled at the boys to look out their window to see. I tucked the boys in and went back to check on them and I found Patton laying on top of Parker after rearranging him told he me "The raccoon will break through my window and get me." While laughing and reassuring him he finally went to sleep.
Penny was such a good raccoon hunter! She was passed out waiting for the Easter Bunny to come so she could sleep right through it.
Get up, get up the Easter Bunny came!
The Easter bunny came and brought lots of eggs.
Brad and I heard Parker wake up and tell Patton to wake up the Easter Bunny left a lot of eggs in the front yard.
There is Patton he would pick one up and if he did not like the candy or it did not have money in it he would put it back on the ground.
Saturday we colored eggs. My nephew Mitchell came to help.

Well Patton did something that really surprised me. I know he has a good heart but hardly displays it. He got a Easter card in the mail with $5.00 in it. I found him trying to stuff that money into his and Parker's rice bowls from school. If you are not familiar the rice bowl is something the kids are suppose to put change into during the Lenten season to help those less fortunate children. Patton says he wants to give the money to his friends like Maddox and Will so that their moms can buy them food. I explained to him that the money would not go to them but to other little boys and girls. He said okay I will give it to those friends Muma.
I had a tear in my eye at the end of our conversation. It really touched me that he is learning the true meaning of life, to take care of all of his brother and sisters just like God and Jesus take care of you and me. I also felt a sense of achievement as a parent. Wow I am doing something right. Well me and St. Joe school and parish.
If we all could have good in our hearts then this world would be a better place. I said instead of giving something up for lent I was going to look at the brighter more positive side of things. I like it on this side. Yes it is hard not to be negative, but it makes me feel better when I am positive. I challenge each one of you to do something good and caring for someone else by tomorrow night. See how good it feels. Try to look at the brighter side of every situation too, trust me you will get more out of life! We can just sit around and do nothing and wait for the world to change all by its self or we could all get our act together and do something to make it a better place to live. If we all try to better people and better disciples of Christ this world will be a better place don't you think?

I finally got the front room repainted and my pictures of the kids hung and could not be more happy! I have wanted 16x20's of the kids for a long time but everywhere I went they wanted an arm and a leg. I stumbled on Amber in Newton and she has taken the kids pictures ever since. She is great at what she does and has awesome prices. Check her out at www.photographicsgallery.net.
