It was over 100 Degrees on her birthday, so it's not surprising that she looked so flushed and unhappy when we first arrived at the cupcake shop.

But an Icy Cold Coca-Cola made everything better.
Toot Toot Toot!
Can she get any cuter?!

Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Dance a little



I'm so excited to share this "Toot" with all of my Mommy readers. Do you make "girl time" for yourself?! I've always thought it to be important, but as I grow older I realize just how much a woman needs her friends and a little fun apart from the husband and kids. I'm excited to share an excerpt from my "ladies night." There was good food, great conversation and a sprinkle of DANCING!! This will make you smile and I hope you'll get with your girlfriends and kick up your feet!

Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Poop Head



If you're new here, check the side bar for the rules to Toot Your Horn Tuesday.
I, for one, don't always follow them!

I have spent less and less time on my blog over the last months, but I'm still on the computer PLENTY!
It's not that I don't have anything to write about! There is never a dull moment in our household of 6 (not to mention the pets.) I think it's mostly because of this adorable little girl. Isn't she cute?! She is definitely a little demanding of my time and my energy and my mind and actually she SUCKS THE LIFE OUT OF ME on some days! ARGH!!

And, when I do sit at my computer, this little cutie often says "let's make funny faces, Mommy!" Funny Faces? What she's talking about is the WEB CAM! I have a web cam on my lap top. Do you have one? What great fun we have!!
And we have even more fun recently since I downloaded a free version of WebcamMax. You'll think I'm crazy, but Glynis and I enjoy making videos and uploading them to youtube or facebook. (WebcamMax is easy and so fun!!) Here's the one the makes me laugh the most and has really amused my friends.
