The Mom Squad gets some girl time

There is never a loss for words when you get the Mom Squad together. We went out to Bob Evans for breakfast yesterday and 2 1/2 hours later we were still talking and had lots more to say. It was nice to get caught up with each other. This was the first time in a long time we were able to get together without the Little Rascals. The three of us met when we sent our children to 3 year old pre-school together. Our families have been friends ever since.
Have a great weekend everyone.

I’m going to catch up on some of our Family news flashes.

To ride or not to ride the school bus. ( Read the original story).

In the news over the past week there have been two stories about some horrible situations with a school bus stop and a school bus. The first one happened with an eleven year old girl. She was kidnapped from a school bus stop in South Lake Tahoe as her step father was approximately one hundred yards away in front of their house, watching her get on the bus. She was found 18 years later. Read more….

Second incident happened in Atlanta Georgia. A naked man hijacked a school bus with students on it and crashed it into a ditch. Read more on this story.

OK… I will take this as a sign. He will not be riding the bus any time soon.

Kissed by a frog. (Read the original story).

The Cisco kid must have been kissed by one big potent frog. This wart has shrunk but not gone away. I am going give the recommended Compound W with Duct tape another shot.
Another one bites the dust.
This boy is losing his teeth left and right. The tooth fairy is going broke.

School Homework
We are living in an area where the schools are rated as an A school. The homework started on Monday and they already have a spelling test on Friday.

Thank you Kim from Pair Slices, Rebecca from In His Hands, K mama from The Daily Dribbles and Jamie from The Beach Family, for sharing your wonderful stories of your children. I hope to see you all next week.

Spontaneous actions

Wednesday is always good for laugh. This is the day where we could tell everyone about our children's outrageous and downright embarrassing moments we will remember and continue to laugh for years to come. It’s “What would your children say?” Wednesday.

This was so adorable. I turned on one of the Cisco Kid favorite show, Fireman Sam. He loves the adventures of protecting the people from danger. When I turned on the show he immediately ran into his bedroom and grabbed his fireman hat, gloves and flashlights. As he was watching the show he was interacting with Fireman Sam as if he was one of the crew.
More of him playing Fireman. This is his second uniform. He wore the first one out warring it so much.
His Halloween costume two years in a row was a Fireman. I wonder what he will want to be this year. Hummmmmm!!!!!

Baby Pictures

I am one photo taking mamma. I love all pictures, all subjects, especially of my little cutie. This is one of his photo studio sessions. He is 17 months old in these pictures.


The Cisco Kid wants it all

Now that The Cisco Kid has been in school for one week, it is time to get him involved in extracurricular activities. I want him to experience different activities and if he likes them it's fine, if he doesn’t like them that is fine also. As long as he tries them out so he can make his decision based on experience. I require him to complete what he starts as long as the activity portrays what is advertised. In the past he has participated in Karate, Tumbling, Gymnastics, Soccer, KidzArt Art Program, Piano and Chirakawa Apaches through the YMCA. He loved them all. This year going into first grade opens new doors for activities. A big activity that we are so excited about is with the Boy Scouts. We joined and he is in the Tiger Cub Pack. This is so up his alley. He loves crafts, camping and getting achievement patches. I have to say, this is right up my alley also. I volunteered as a den mom. He has two other activities that he will also be doing, the Awana with the children’s ministry and Soccer. This year we have a busy schedule.

This is when he was in the Awana Cubbies. Now it will be Awana.

These were second graders in the Boy Scouts. Earlier this year we went to the Georgia Aquarium and spent the night. They offer the greatest adventure. You can camp out in the aquarium and they give you behind the scenes tour of the whole aquarium. We were teamed up with this Boy Scout Troop. It was an extra special experience for The Cisco Kid because these Boys took the Cisco Kid in as if he was part of their troop. From that day forward my son loved the Boy Scouts. Soccer Piano Recital, I will continue to teach him the piano.
Participating and reading about "What would your children say?" Wednesday, is a real good laugh for mid week. I hope to see all the familuarla faces and new ones.

S'mores cookies

very Monday I am going to post a recipe from my Christmas cookie collection. There are a total of twelve recipes I will be sharing.

Last week it was the Almond Crescents and this week is S'mores. I am going to put a linky on each of the posts. If you would like to share your Christmas cookie recipes I would love to see them.

S’mores is so easy and a huge hit in my house. My husband and son love them because they are S’mores fans. I love them because not only do they taste great but these can be made without having a roaring fire.

1 box of Honey Gram Crackers
1 small jar of Marshmallow Fluff
1 bag of Chocolate flavored Bark Coating, 24 oz.


Brake Gram Crackers into 4th's. Spread a thin layer of Marshmallow Fluff on Gram Cracker then cover with another gram Cracker. Once all crackers are Fluff sandwiches melt Chocolate Bark according to the directions on the bag. Dip one side of the Fluff sandwich and place on parchment paper to cool and harden.

No Baking Required.
